What is the 5:2 diet?

Posted on May 28 by

The 5:2 diet gets its name because it involves eating regularly for 5 days of the week while drastically limiting caloric intake on the other 2 two days.

Unlike a true fast, which involves eating nothing for a set amount of time, the goal of the 5:2 diet is to cut caloric intake on fasting days to 25 percent or just one-quarter of a person's regular intake on the remaining days.

Importantly, fasting days are not consecutive because it is vital to give the body the calories and nutrients it needs to thrive.

People typically space their fasting days out, for example, by taking their reduced-calorie days on Monday and Thursday or Wednesday and Saturday.

Part of the diet's appeal is this flexibility. Instead of severely restricting the foods a person can eat, the 5:2 diet focuses on strict caloric restriction on only 2 days of the week. This may help some people feel more satisfied with their diet, as they will not feel that they are missing out all the time.

Everyone's meal plan may look slightly different. Some fast day meal schedules include:

1. Eating three small meals such as an early breakfast, afternoon lunch and late dinner

2. Eating an early lunch and dinner

3. Eating a small breakfast and late lunch and skipping dinner

4. Eating a single meal at dinner or breakfast
