Sylger Jones accompanied Fast Diet co-creator Mimi Spencer to Mauritius to try out the Fast Diet package, created by Spencer, which includes special calorie-counted meals for fast days, spa treatments and exercise advice.
‘Mimi’s idea is that, away from life’s distractions and looked after by others, getting into The Fast Diet couldn’t be easier – making it more likely that you’ll continue it when back in your real world,’ Sylger Jones explains.
Available all year round and without the need to pre-book, she was impressed at how easy it was to get involved in the Kickstart the Fast Diet package on arrival at the hotel.
She also praised the fact that Fast Diet dishes are marked on all menus with a special logo to make it easy to follow and even drinks and cocktails come with calorie advice.
Sylger Jones explains that fasting was easier in the 5* luxury of the hotel, ‘It felt good to focus my attention on other things – the view, for example, or the excellent book I was reading, or how comfy the day bed was on my balcony. All in the knowledge that the next day I could eat what the hell I liked from a choice of top notch restaurants.’
She raves about the food on both fast and non-fasting days highlighting ‘lavish buffet breakfasts at L’Archipel’, the sashimi and salads at the laidback Asian Corner and dinner at Le Barachois, the hotel’s restaurant which floats on the peaceful lagoon.
She says, ‘Between eating and not eating I stayed busy with laid back yogic stretching on the beach, lots of swims in the lap pool and the sea, and lying about reading on the beach – where staff served us cold water in natty orange ice bags, cleaned our sunglasses and brought us tubs of Haagan Daaz on non fast days. It’s all very relaxed.’
