At last the weather is beginning to warm up over here in the UK. Are you looking forward to enjoying being fit and active on long summer days in the countryside or perhaps being chilled and well-rested at the beach? Whichever the case, the promise of beautiful summer days often prompts us to reassess our diet and healthy eating goals and perhaps aim to also lose a few pounds that crept on whilst we weren’t looking in the colder months!

Healthy Weight Loss Diet Plan

Did you know that there’s a healthy weight loss diet plan where you focus your effort into just two days a week, leaving you relaxed and free to eat well on the remaining five days? The Two-Day 5:2 Diet Plan is an extremely popular way to both lose weight and improve your overall health. It is a plan that is:
  • simple to understand
  • easy to adapt to your own lifestyle
  • manageable and straightforward
  • a suitable weight loss diet for women or men

    A Dozen Days to a New You For Summer

    The Two Day 5:2 Diet Plan Recipe Cookbook - Low Calorie Meals Under 300 Calories
    This means that if you follow the Two-Day 5:2 Diet Plan for 6 weeks, you will only diet for a total of a dozen days (just two days per week). A scientific study published in 2010 (link Int J Obes (Lond)) found the 5:2 Diet to be as effective at losing weight and improving insulin sensitivity as following a daily calorie-controlled diet. Based on the weekly calories deficit created by following the 5:2 diet, you can reasonably expect to lose 1-2lbs per week following this type of diet, which works out at to an average 6-12lbs (2.7-5.4kg) for a 6 week period. With that in mind, June’s featured Menu of the Month comes from my newly released "The Two Day 5:2 Diet Plan Recipe Cookbook - Low Calorie Meals", which features over 40 recipes, ALL 300 calories & under! It shows you just how much naturally filling and delicious food you can eat, even on your 500 calorie fast days!

    5:2 Diet Lunch - Ranch Chicken Pitta

    Don’t make the mistake of stopping by any of those ‘Meal Deals Lunch’ shops on your Fast Diet days. A packaged chicken salad sandwich can easily contain over 350 calories, and I have even spotted some that are around 500 calories! Instead, for under 200 calories, tuck into this flavoursome & filling Ranch Chicken Pitta – just 188 moreish calories!
    5:2 Diet Dinner - Spinach Soufflé 216 calories

    5:2 Diet Dinner - Spinach Soufflé

    Don’t worry that all this delicious food means that you’ll be dinning on a dry cracker and water for your evening meal – I’ve got you covered! Instead, you could be enjoying this impressive but oh-so-easy Spinach Soufflé, the soufflé may be big and beautiful but the calorie-count is a slim and slender 216 calories.
