5:2 DIET SPE­CIAL

Recipes with no more than FIVE in­gre­di­ents

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

WHEN I cre­ated the 5:2 diet in 2013, it was based on cut­ting-edge sci­en­tific re­search – and in­spired by how the plan had im­proved my own health.

To­day, there is more ev­i­dence than ever for its ben­e­fits. It could help cut your risk of breast can­cer, bowel can­cer, type 2 di­a­betes, heart at­tack and stroke. It could also re­duce your blood pres­sure, im­prove your sleep and boost your sex drive, and may help fight de­men­tia. And it’s easy to stick to.

I hope the recipes in this pull­out will make pre­par­ing for days when you’re cut­ting back eas­ier – and more plea­sur­able – than ever.

Each calo­rie-con­trolled dish uses just five main in­gre­di­ents. That means they’re sim­ple to shop for, quick to pre­pare and kinder to your wal­let.

We’ve in­cluded 22 new recipes for break­fasts, lunches, fam­ily favourites and even a few healthy sweet treats to have on nonFast Days.

So, whether you’ve al­ready started a weight-loss drive by fol­low­ing my lat­est 5:2 plan, The Fast 800, or are still won­der­ing whether di­et­ing is for you, read on for in­spi­ra­tion…
