First established in August 2012 by Doctor Michael Mosley, the 5:2 diet is a diet where people eat normally for five days of the week and restrict their calories for two non-consecutive days.
According to Dr Mosley the diet works because it is “simple, logical and not too challenging”. The 5:2 diets mimics in a similar way to the feast and famine lifestyle of cavemen as it restricts calories and gives the body a chance to repair itself.
With many health benefits including management of cholesterol, type II diabetes and lowering of blood pressure, the 5:2 diet provides a long term option for people from all walks of life.
