The 5:2 diet allows you to eat as usual for five days and to fast for two days. The “new” weight-loss strategy known as the 5:2 diet has been receiving much attention in the media since the book The Fast Diet: The Secret of Intermittent Fasting - Lose Weight, Stay Healthy, Live Longer was launched late last year. The 5:2 diet allows you to eat as usual for five days and to fast for two days.
