It is nearly our 3rd anniversary of starting the 5:2 lifestyle and I shall be continuing to have 2 days a week of only 500 calories.
I’m planning on sharing a lot more content over the next month as I know that there will be lots of you wanting to start 2016 by taking control of your diet. So to start with, I am looking at a simple way of sharing ideas for fast day menus.
Here is an example of my new plan.
As it happens, my own intention for 2016 is to move towards a more planet- and body- friendly diet, which means more vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, fruit and legumes and less meat and fish. So this particular example, from way back in 2013, may not be something I will repeat – but if you have a meat lover in your family, it just goes to show that you can offer not only breakfast, but also a 3 course dinner including steak and sides, with less than 500 calories (or 600 with slightly larger portions for a man).
