After the party season, it’s time to make a new year resolution - lose weight. But it is difficult for most people to have hunger feeling for a long period. Then, you should follow this weight loss diet – 5:2 diet.
What is 5:2 diet?
It’s known as The Fast Diet, that is to eat whatever you want five days of a week, but limit the calories absorption to around 500 to 600 per day for the rest of two days a week. It is found that such a diet is easier to follow than other calorie-restricted diet.
It is recommended the 2 days a week will be non-consecutive days, e.g. fast on Mondays and Thursdays to have about 500 calories for women and 600 calories for men per day. For the rest of the week will consume a normal number of calories a day.
