Kube Studios: What is the 5:2 Diet?
A leading modelling agency, Kube Studios have over 30 staff dedicated to helping aspiring models get into modelling. Kube Studios have premises in London, Birmingham and Manchester and embody quality and professionalism.
The 5:2 Diet is a name given to what is basically intermittent fasting. fasting two days a week is potentially a good way to lose weight because the body goes into repair mode rather than starvation mode. In theory this leads the body to restore damaged cells, using more energy, whereas it lays down fat when it thinks it is starving.
For two days a week, non-consecutive days, so perhaps Tuesday and Sunday, the idea is to limit calorie intake to 500 per day. For the other five days you can eat normally, according to the recommended daily calorie intake of 2,000 for women and 2,500 for men. On the fasting days it may be a good idea to drink a lot of water and eat a bigger volume of low calorie/high water content foods; fruit, veg, seeds, nuts.
