Hey guys! In this video I review the 5:2 Diet and cover what it is and some of the advantages and disadvantages.
What it is:
The 5:2 Diet is a form of dieting which became very popular because of Dr. Michael Mosley’s book, “The Fast Diet.” The diet follows a very simple protocol and supports intermittent fasting. Some say that the whole intermittent fasting craze was because of Dr. Michael Mosley’s book and appearance on television. The 5:2 Diet is basically eating normally 5 days out of the week, and then restricting calories 2 days out of the week. For men the recommendation is to consume 600 calories or less on fasting days. For women, the general recommendation is about 500 calories or less.
By picking 2 days to fast every single week, it helps to create a caloric deficit which over time, will help you lose weight. This makes things really simple on the dieter so that they’re not restricting themselves on the types of foods they can eat throughout the week. It enables people to eat whatever they want 5 days out of the week and then be slightly self-disciplined 2 days of the week.
The 5:2 is super simple to understand and implement. There’s no crazy amount of tracking or tedious measuring. Just eat whatever you want for 5 days and restrict your amount of eating for 2 days. Just about anyone can implement the program.
2. Enjoy your favorite foods
With this type of diet, you’ll be able to enjoy the type of foods you love. Other programs like the Atkins diet or the Ketogenic diet put a restriction on the kind of foods you can eat. With this program, you can enjoy your cake, ice cream, hamburgers and hot dogs without an ounce of guilt.
1. Nutritional value
Creating a caloric deficit is vital for weight loss, but it’s also important to ensure that our bodies our well-nourished. The emphasis of the 5:2 Diet is on calories, but it doesn’t have a huge focus on giving our bodies a balanced level of macronutrients. In order to have healthy bodies, our bodies must consume a balanced level of macronutrients.
2. Over-eating on feasting days
Since the diet is focused on depriving yourself of calories twice a week, and eating whatever you want five days a week, some people might over-eat on their feasting days. This is especially true in the beginning when your body isn’t used to the diet yet. The day after your fasting day, you may feel a lot more hungry than usual and find yourself eating more than you normally would. This may create an imbalance in your caloric intake and you may end up just compensating for the calories you didn’t consume on your feasting days.
3. Promotes restriction mindset
Since the diet is focused on caloric restriction, depending on your individual perception of dieting, you may start to develop a restriction mindset. A restriction mindset means that you get into the habit of depriving yourself of food and viewing food in a negative light. This, when taken to the extreme, can be dangerous.
Overall, I think the 5:2 Diet is a great way to lose weight and burn thigh fat, especially for newbies. If you’re the type of person who HATES keeping track of every single macronutrient or HATES going to the gym, I think that this an excellent diet to try out. This method can also be combined with a variety of exercise and diet regiments as well.
