Intermittent fasting 5/2
Intermittent Fasting 5/2 is is an eating pattern that involves regular fasting.
It's called the 5/2 diet because five days of the week are normal eating days which include breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the other two restrict calories to 25% of your daily intake per day.
So, for example using our recipe bank, you would eat 3 meals a day for 5 days and the other 2 you would eat 1 meal a day making sure the calories of that meal meet your 25% calorie intake.
This way of eating can be combined with other diet styles to match your likes and dislikes. For example, you could follow the 5:2 principle whilst following a vegan diet or you could follow the principle whilst following a keto diet.
