Is the 5:2 approach the right diet for you?

Are you looking for a 5:2 diet that is easy to do, safe and rigorously tested, one that really does enable you to lose weight and keep it off? The 2-Day Diet is a revolutionary approach which is designed by scientists and has proven results.

The 2 day diet helps you lose weight and keep it off as well as help protect you against cancer and improve your overall health.

The 2-Day Diet will also help to retrain your appetite so that you can move away from over-eating and unhealthy food cravings. In short, it will help you learn to eat what your body actually wants and needs, so that you lose weight and keep it off forever.

To get all the benefits of The 2-Day Diet you don’t have to fast, skip meals or feel hungry. All you need to do is eat a low-carbohydrate diet for two days a week, ideally  consecutively, and then eat normally but sensibly for the other five.

2-day dieting is easy to do. People find the daily grind of dieting hard and often give up. The 2 day diet is easier to keep to. In one study 70% of the 2-Day Dieters were still following the Diet after three months, compared with only 40 per cent of the 7-day dieters.

Rapid results

The 2-Day Diet was developed with short- and long-term weight loss in mind: you can expect to see rapid weight loss, especially in the first few months on the diet – losing up to 2 kg (4 lb 4 oz) of fat a week – and find it much easier to keep off the weight you lose.

In clinical trials conducted by authors Dr Michelle Harvie and Professor Tony Howell at Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention 2-Day Dieters lost fat about one and a half times more quickly than those on a conventional seven-day, calorie-controlled diet. They also lost more centimeters around their waists which is where fat most harmful to your health is stored.

After a month 2-Day dieters lost on average 0.5–1.4 kg (1–3 lb) a week, whereas 7-day dieters only lost an average of 0.3–1 kg (1⁄2–2 lb) a week.


Longer term, our 2-Day Dieters were also more successful in keeping the weight off.

We followed up with 2-Day Dieters 12–15 months after they first started the Diet and found that they kept their weight off and maintained healthier lower levels of cholesterol and the hormone insulin with one restricted day per week.

The 2-Day Diet really is a diet that works – one that can help you shape up for summer now and be slimmer and healthier for life.
