You might have already heard about the Alternate Day Diet
or 5:2 Diet which rely on sensible fasting to help dieters slim down. The idea is that by keeping blood glucose stable, we have more energy, less cravings and burn more calories.
Try...Fasting every other day for four weeks. It's a good way to get started and to really see the health benefits. On fasting days, have no more than 800 calories. On your 'days off' you can eat normally.
