The 2-Day Diet is an easy, clinically proven intermittent diet to get slim and healthy developed by acclaimed scientists Dr Michelle Harvie and Prof Tony Howell at Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention. To reach your perfect weight, all you need to do is follow a low-carb, low calorie diet for two days a week. For the rest of the week just eat normally but sensibly - ideally eating foods associated with a Mediterranean lifestyle.
It really is that simple and the science proves it: in trials followers had a 65% success rate of losing weight and keeping it off (the success rate of other continuous calorie-controlled diets trialled ranged between 20% and 40%); they also lost twice as much weight as those on continuous calorie-controlled diets*, almost twice as much fat and more centimetres around their waist.
The 2-Day Diet is packed with clear and simple guidance, meal planners and 100 delicious and filling recipes to help you on your way. There are also options and meal plans for vegetarians. The authors explain how and why the diet works, and outline the numerous proven health benefits associated with it, including: reducing insulin and levels of other hormones and inflammation in the body known to cause cancer; lowering high blood pressure; and improving well-being, mood and energy levels. It is a unique way of eating and one that can completely retrain your appetite and rejuvenate your body on a cellular level. Finally you can enjoy your food and stop worrying about your weight for good.
* Collectively 2-Day Dieters trialled lost twice as much weight. This is partly due to more dieters sticking to the 2-Day Diet than the calorie-controlled diets. Compared individually with successful calorie-controlled dieters, 2-Day Dieters lost around 60% more weight.
