Maybe an option for the New Year
Despite my initial skepticism, I really liked The 5:2 Fast Diet for Beginners. Its premise makes sense to me – that fasting occasionally helps you to reset your internal clock. I was surprised that you could eat your normal calorie intake on the non-fasting days and that the fasting days themselves give you 500 calories. I’m making a grocery list because the recipes look great and I’ve recently been struggling with lower calorie recipe ideas – I’m in kind of a rut, truth be told. Since it’s the height of the crazy holiday season, I won’t be starting the 5:2 schedule before New Year’s, but this plan could be just the ticket come January 1!
Interesting idea for weight loss.
This book suggests a new approach to weight loss: 2 days of fasting (very restricted calories) out of every 7 days. It applies some of the principles of low-carb dieting, but in a way that is easier to do (especially if all-out low carb is a struggle for you.) It guides you through how to do 2 fast days in a month, and gives a lot of recipes for fasting days and non-fasting days.
The 5:2 Fast Diet Review
For me, 5 : 2 Fast Diet for Beginners made me uneasy from the start. Fasting for religious purposes is one thing, but fasting in order to diet and lose weight is problematic. In the introduction the authors explain the advantages of fasting by explaining changes in hormones that will bring about weight loss. But other diets have been successful that involved no fasting. I would, however, that the recipes looked delicious and well balanced.
