The 2:5 diet
We have all heard about the 5:2 diet, where you eat normally five out of seven days during the week, and keep you calorie intake at a minimum the last two days (500 calories for women, and 600 calories for men). At Nupo, we suggest the 2:5 diet that – as the name tells – is a reversed 5:2 diet, because you keep follow the Nupo diet on five out seven days (approx. 700 calories per day), and eat normally the remaining two days.
Why choose the 2:5 diet?
The 2:5 diet has the potential to be a more effective diet, as you – as aforementioned – keep a low calorie intake on five out of seven days. This diet is for you that wants a effecient weight loss, but still wishes to eat normally and enjoy your meals with family and friends, twice a week.
How does the 2:5 diet work?
On the two days, where you eat “normally”, which of course varies from person to person. We recommend a healthy and varied diet that consist of a alot of vegetables and fruits, as well as a good protein source for every meal. Choose the whole wheat altenatives to carbohydrates (for example brown rice instead of white rice) with a high amount of fibres, and keep the intake of sugar, candy, and other sweets to a minimum. Keep your calorie intake on around 2000 calories per day if you are a woman and around 2500 calories if you are a man. If you eat healthy and varied on the your “normal” days, it will be easier for you to maintain it, when you finish the 2:5 diet, and proceed to eat reguraly all seven days of the week. On the five days, where you keep your calorie intake on a minimum, you should follow Nupo’s VLCD-diet (Very Low Calorie Diet), where you drink six shakes on a daily basis, which provides you with all the necessary vitamins, minerals, fibres, proteins etc. – and keeps you on around 700 calories per day.
