The 5:2 lifestyle diet is sweeping the nation. It allows you to change your life for the better by dieting just 2 days a week. You will live longer, lose weight and feel great by reducing your calorie intake to 500/600 calories on fast days, and eating normally for the rest of the week. You can even eat out and have treats
But what to eat on a fasting day? Bored with omelets or salads? Want something quick and easy but don't know what? Look no further. With over 100 calorie-counted recipes specially designed for anyone who is fasting, it couldn't be easier or more delicious to put the 5:2 diet into practice.
5 feasts, 2 fasts = live long, feel great, lose weight!
