The 2-Day Diet is all over the press now. But does it work? Is it effective for extreme cases? Does it prevent serious illnesses?
Judging by the many comments from the people who have tried it, the anser in all cases is Yes. Here then is what you have to do.
The diet is simplicity itself. Two diet days are followed by five days on a sensible Mediterranean-type intake (see picture).
The basic principle is that on diet days you eat no carbohydrates, just Proteins, such as eggs, fish, poultry (skinless), other meats or tofu; Fats, such as olive oil, whole nuts and peanut butter; Dairy, such as small portions of cheese, milk or yoghurt; Low-carbohydrate fruits, such as berries; Low-carb vegetables, especially greens — but no potatoes or other high-carb veg; Drinks: water, tea, coffee and low-cal cordials.
On non-diet days simply consume sensible portions of fresh fish, meat, salad, vegetables and wholegrains. No junk food, takeaways or processed foods.
It’s as simple as that. Keep portions low but make sure you are satisfied on non-diet days. You will then be able to carry this regime on without time limit.
The diet is said to dramatically cut risks of cancers, heart disease, type-2 diabetes, strokes and other circulatory and heart-related conditions.
