5:2 Starter's Guide: The 2-Day Diet

The 2-Day Diet restricts calorie intake on two non-consecutive days a week and allows unconstrained eating the other five days. On fasting days, calorie consumption is limited to 500 calories a day (600 for men) while the other days it’s recommended to stick to 2,000 calories for women and 2,5000 calories for men. A form of intermittent fasting, the 5:2 diet originated and became popular in the UK, before arriving in the United States. It is believed that your body goes into ‘repair mode’ on lower calorie intake days and benefits include improved cognitive functions and a better digestive system. This bookazine will provide recipes and show how you can eat fresh, flavorful satisfying meals on both fast days and non-fast days.
