Intermittent fasting 5/2

Intermittant Fasting 5/2 is an eating pattern that involves regular fasting.

It's called the 5/2 diet because five days of the week are normal eating days which include breakfast, lunch and dinner while the other two restrict calories to 25% of your daily intake per day.

So for Example using our recipe bank you would eat 3 meals a day for 5 days and the other 2 you would eat 1 meal a day making sure the calories of that meal meet your 25% calorie intake.
