If you're on the 5:2 Diet, it’s not a good plan to be wandering the oh-so-tempting aisles of the supermarket on your fast-diet-days, nor to get home after a hard day in the office and be faced with “what should I cook tonight”? 

Sticking to 500/600 calories on two diet days per week is essential on this diet plan as it’s this which creates the weekly calorie deficit. Single-serving meals can be difficult at any time, but it’s even more so when you want something that is healthy, tasty and filling and only between 200 and 300 calories

Healthy cooking for one can seem like a lot of work and effort.  However the key to success for fast-diet day dinners is to combine:
  1. delicious foods that are naturally low in fat and calories with
  2. healthy cooking techniques and
  3. portion control.
Following these principals, you will be able to enjoy:

  • fresh, flavoursome salads
  • super single serving vegetarian meals
  • delicious individual fabulous fish & chicken meals,

many of which can be ready in ½hr. For example, my Quick & Easy Creamy Roasted Pepper, Tomato & Caper Pasta is only 274 calories for a hearty and filling serving and ready in 30 minutes.
