The 5:2 diet is now firmly established as a highly effective and popular way to lose weight. It allows you to change your life for the better by dieting for just 2 days a week. You will live longer, lose weight and feel great by reducing your calorie intake for a limited period each week. The rest of the time you can eat normally, dine out and even have treats.
