Intermittent fasting is often called 5:2 fasting. It has become very popular in the past few years.
You drastically reduce your food intake for 2 days each week (500 calories for women; 600 for men). On the other 5 days each week you eat normally.
Many people use fasting to lose weight. It is also a great long term way of eating. It is easy to do, controls your weight, and shows promising health benefits for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s.
We have designed many aspects of our 12 week fasting program with Ways of Eating to make the best of the 8 factors that make people more likely to succeed.
The Fasting Program guides you through the first steps with 5:2 intermittent fasting, getting your journey to a healthier, slimmer body – and a more relaxed attitude to food – off to a flying start.
“Excellent introduction to fasting. Plenty of information, prompt answers to a variety of questions. Great support from a knowledgeable leader and group. Would recommend!” Wendy, Scotland
