Welcome to the 5:2 Diet Plan

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. Just remember if you think you can do it, you CAN.”

The 5:2 diet, also known as the fast diet or 5:2 intermittent fasting, originated from the UK in late 2012, and has since taken the world by storm. The popularity of the 5:2 diet plan is due to its simplicity, with no restrictions on your favorite foods, no restrictions on any food groups and no complicated meal plans. In addition, there is no need for supplements or expensive shakes. Sounds good? Keep reading 🙂

The 5:2 diet plan allows you to eat whatever you like 5 days a week and fast for the other 2 days. The days in which you choose to fast is entirely up to you and should be non consecutive. On these fasting days, you are not starving yourself but purely restricting your intake where you may still eat up to 500 calories/day. This unique approach to dieting is flexible and unrestricted, making it easy to follow and allows you to continue enjoying the foods you love.

By fasting twice a week, it has been reported that you can expect to lose about 1 pound a week. The fact that you only need to fast on 2 days actually helps you suppress your appetite naturally, causing less cravings. It also changes your attitude towards food as a whole, giving you a healthier mindset.

Although most people today who are on the 5:2 diet started dieting for weight loss, there have also been health benefits observed with this type of intermittent fasting. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels can improve as a result of the 5:2 diet, as well as improvements in blood sugar levels and anti-aging factors.
