The 5:2 diet took the dieting world by storm and quickly become popular after the BBC broadcast a Horizon episode that featured the diet back in August 2012.
Not only have we been applying the diet to our lives to help us lose weight, but the diet can also help us in other aspects of our lives. Not just a diet plan, you can aim to 5:2 your whole life to make positive changes that improve your lifestyle for the long term.
So what's it all about? The 5:2 diet works on a weekly schedule. For two days a week you are expected to carry out 'fasting' days and the other five days are your 'free' days, where you can eat normally. You can also apply similar elements to other areas of your life to make further improvements.
