NUTRITION 
I was asked my thoughts on The 5:2 Fast Diet. Actually, I had never heard of it! A quick search led me to the website and an understanding of what the 5:2 is about. Basically, the plan is to eat normally then “fast” for two days. On those two days, you drop your calories to dangerously low levels of 500-600. They claim that with this plan you should lose about a pound a week, but that success depends on “not over-eating on the normal days.” The fact is, you can lose a pound a week without “intermittent fasting” when you are eating the right way! So why risk your lean muscle and metabolism? We know that severe caloric restriction can slow down your metabolism! Don't do it!

The site also claims that with the 5:2 plan, you “enjoy a wide range of health benefits” and proceeds to list many of the benefits that can be attributed to healthy eating and an active lifestyle.

Could you lose weight on this plan, sure. Remember, severe caloric restriction can do more harm than good. This is not a permanent solution. In my opinion, if you eat well all the time, your weight will melt off, especially with the right exercise program.
