Michael describes it as “sustainable intermittent fasting.”
What is it?
The expert says: “Intermittent fasting is a highly effective way not just to lose weight, but to build a healthier, brain and body.
“This is why, after you have completed The Very Fast 800 stage, we recommend The New 5:2.
“Instead of keeping to 800 calories per day every day, you schedule two days a week as 800-calorie ‘fasting days’, and follow a healthy Mediterranean-style diet for the rest of the week.
“You can also jump straight to The New 5:2 if you find that your goals and needs are better suited to this approach.”
