5:2 Intermittent Fasting is a video will teach you how to use the 5:2 method of calorie restriction fasting.
Many people have followed this 5:2 diet and seen incredible results with their overall health.
5:2 fasting is a great fasting method for beginners. Those who struggle with 16:8 intermittent fasting or one meal a day intermittent fasting will likely do very well with the 5:2 fasting diet.
I don’t personally do the 5:2 intermittent fasting but I think it is an incredible option for many people, especially those new to fasting. I don’t think that it will offer you the same benefits as one meal a day or regular 16:8 fasting because it does not put you in a fasted state for a long period of time. Though you’ll get many of the same benefits, I do believe the other fasting methods will offer you much better results. Many people wonder which method of fasting is best for them.
The truth is that the best method of fasting is the one that works best for you.
There isn’t an “one size fits all” approach to fasting. You should follow whatever method is sustainable for you so that you can receive the long term benefits that fasting has to offer.
5:2 intermittent fasting only requires you to follow it two days a week. So it is super easy to stick with and maintain this method for a long period of time. If your someone who is suffering from a health condition then this is a great method to get you on the mend and support healing in your body. Overtime, you may find that you can transition to 16:8 intermittent fasting or even OMAD.

In this video we are discussing the 5:2 intermittent fasting known as the 5:2 method, the 5:2 diet, and a lot of people have been asking me “how do you go about doing this” but also what my thoughts are on this. Now this 5:2 method became really popular back in 2013, at least among my peers. It was becoming popular along the same time the 16:8 was becoming popular. Now the big thing is the 16:8 intermittent fasting has become wildly popular while the 5:2 method kind of peeked and not too many people do it. However, it is a really awesome method and I could really see why a lot of people would like it. So, let’s go ahead and discuss it.
The 5 here refers to 5 days a week where you are going to eat regular calorie intake and the 2 refers to 2 days a week and it can be any 2 days and you calorie restrict. When we look at calorie restrict you are just going to eat a quarter of your calorie intake.
So, let’s say you are a male doing this and you are consuming 2500 calories per day then you are going to calorie restrict down to 628 calories on these days. If you are a female and you are consuming 2000 calories, then you are going to calorie restrict down to 500 calories per day.
Now as always you should be following a good high-quality diet. I recommend you are following a diet high in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbohydrates. If you have questions on what you should and shouldn’t eat go ahead and check out my nutrition guide below.
Now the other thing that a lot of people ask me is “which one should I do”; you know this 5:2 method, 16:8 or OMAD. Now I personally do not do this 5:2 method, but I can really see why a lot of people would like it. It is very low entry and easy to get into and not hard to follow and stick with, where as some people might struggle with 16:8 or OMAD. My thoughts on this and the reason that I don’t do it is because I do think that 16:8 is going to offer you some better results. I do think OMAD is going to offer you some better results and the reason for it is you are fasting for longer times when you do those.
If you are doing 5:2 method you are going to eat your last meal on Sunday, then say on Monday you eat a small breakfast and on Monday night you eat a small dinner. Now you’re not really putting your self in a fasted state for a long period of time. Like with 16:8 and OMAD, you are putting your self in a deep fasted state, you are going to drive insulin levels lower, burn more fat and see better results. Now of course you are going to see great results with boosting growth hormone and driving insulin low and all the great things that fasting does for you when you do this 5:2 method but I just think you are going to get much better results with 16:8.
So here is the thing when you look at all these different fasting methods out there, there isn’t really a right or wrong way. What really matters is you are doing the right one for you. If 5:2 intermittent fasting is appealing for you and obtainable for you then by all means do it. It is a really great method, it is just not for everybody just like 16:8 isn’t for everybody and just like OMAD isn’t for everybody.
This is all I really have to share with you on this 5:2 method. If you have any questions be sure to post them below. Be sure to share this with your friends, a lot of people are asking about this.
