Fast diet – The 5:2 diet review | Is it the best intermittent fasting diet for weight loss?

Overall score : 2.8

Breaking the myths of traditional fasting, Michael Mosley came up with a diet plan, introducing intermittent fasting, to people whose obesity levels continue to soar, even after trying standard dietary advice. Fast Diet is a 5:2 plan that suggests the dieter eat for five days and reduce calories to 500 for two days. Scientific studies are a testimony to the benefits of fasting. This is a new approach to dieting, which naturally helps to relax your body, detoxify your system, and trigger fat burning. Lots of success stories and good opinions can be found being published about this diet, leaving some subtle realities unearthed! Make sure before you embark on the journey of 5:2 dieting, to be aware of calorie restriction that it chains you in. Trying this plan, and then embracing it as a lifestyle habit, has been difficult for many. We believe there are better and more flexible, dieter friendly plans out there, which focus on intermittent fasting as the key to weight loss. We recommend Eat Stop Eat program over Fast Diet.
