When the lovely ladies at Ideal World TV emailed me to ask if I wanted to give this 5:2 diet a go, I thought why the heck not! I was sent 12 weeks worth of food and sent on my merry way. The Fast Diet Kitchen produce ready made soups and main meals for your fast days that provide you with all the nutrients your body needs under 500 calories. Let me talk a little about the 5:2 diet first.
The 5:2 diet works on the idea that for 5 days, you eat as you normally would, but on the other two days you consume a quarter of that at around 500 calories for women. It's a modified version of fasting and completely intermittent. The collaboration between Ideal World TV and Fast Diet Kitchen, the fasting life is made so crazy easy!
As you can see, with The Fast Diet Kitchen has pretty much sorted out everything for you on a fast day. I've always been hesitant about doing the fast days on my own as I knew I wouldn't get the nutrients I need for those days. The Fast Diet Kitchen makes everything really stress free so all you have to do is pick a soup and a main meal for your day and off you pop!
You can buy The Fast Diet Kitchen from idealworld.tv credit and the prices are really reasonable when you think that it's two days worth of food a week, lunch and dinner! I will be blogging again to tell you all about each of the meals I've enjoyed and how I've got on with this!
Have you ever tried a 5:2 diet?
