Allison Aubrey. People following a diet would eat lean protein and non-starchy vegetables two days a week. This is not a detox diet. Nor is it an extreme version of calorie restriction. This doesn't mean starving yourself.
The diet is designed by dieticians, nutritionally balanced, and many women have found it surprisingly easy to stick to. On the two milk days you only consume calories, but on other days eat sensibly - keeping to around an 1,calorie Mediterranean-style diet for the rest of the week.
Because this is only slightly less than the normal recommendation for the average woman of 2, calories a day, you should hardly notice any difference. Gillian had tried other weight-loss plans but says she was thrilled to find a diet that completely fitted her lifestyle.
I found that drinking lots of milky coffee really filled me up. I would have coffee for breakfast, another at 11am and then my fruit for lunch. I saved all my vegetables for the evening to have as a casserole or soup.
I never felt really hungry, although by the end of day two my concentration started to suffer. But knowing it's only for two days - and not constant deprivation - makes this diet so much easier for me to do.
And by the third day you don't feel like going mad - you just enjoy eating normally. This is the ideal diet for me as it's so simple - it doesn't take any planning or thinking about and I could still enjoy my weekend. I easily lost the stone and I've kept it off. I still use the principles of the diet if I need to - if I overindulge, I'll follow it with a light day of milk, vegetables and fruit.
You might think after two days of eating very little that you would approach day three feeling absolutely ravenous. Psychologically, if you've worked hard for two days you won't want to spoil it by overindulging,' explains Dr Harvie. Some people in the diet trial did complain of feeling hungry on milk days, but so did those on the calorie-controlled diet. And after six months of following the 2 Day Diet, women had lower levels of leptin, insulin and C-reactive protein - all associated with breast cancer.
Concerns about the risks of prolonged very low-calorie diets - when you burn muscle instead of fat - don't apply in the same way with this diet, as you're only doing it for two days. You can expect to lose at least 1lb a week and possibly up to 2lb using the two-day approach.
The length of the diet really depends on how much you have to lose. Professor David Haslam, chair of the National Obesity Forum, says he welcomes anything new that works: So any diet that is nutritionally balanced, which this is, and makes it easier for women to lose weight is welcome.
The 2 Day Diet is based on milk, fruit and vegetables - the milk provides protein, calcium and other essential nutrients, and helps fill you up, while vegetables and fruit provide fibre, nutrients and bulk. On the 'milk days' you can only consume the following: If you don't like milk, you can substitute each third of a pint for: Ingredients are limited, but there are plenty of ways to add interest and flavour: So why should this eating plan work for you when others have failed?
It's not just about the calories.
The psychology of weight loss is just as important - if not more so - and plays a key role in whether a diet works for you. And that's where this approach may be a winner. We don't do anything in isolation - we compare. So, after eating so few calories for two days, it feels very satisfying to have three times that much for the five days that follow. You don't feel deprived in the way that you might on a full-time diet. Blair thinks the diet may also help change your eating habits: On the low-cal days, the bulk of the food matches the number of calories it contains.
The book defines what constitutes a serving, and gives you a detailed list of all the foods you may consume and in what quantities. Your diet for the remaining days the five unrestricted days should be based on eating a healthy Mediterranean-style diet.
This includes food that is as whole and unprocessed as possible with lots of fruit and vegetables, wholegrains, beans, pulses, nuts and olive oil as well as fish, poultry, low-fat dairy foods, and it can include amounts of lean, red meat — but avoid lots of pasta, pizza and red wine.
The Mediterranean diet is packed full of disease-fighting antioxidants, vitamins and flavonoids, and the benefits of eating this way are almost too numerous to list. Your eating plan for these five unrestricted days contains high-protein, high-fibre foods to help you feel full and reduce your chances of overeating.
Protein foods include: Limit to once during the five unrestricted days: One of the things that makes The 2-Day Diet so effective, according to the people that follow it, is the structure the diet gives to their eating. All the evidence shows that high-protein coupled with low-fat, and fruit and vegetables is the way to long term weight loss and that Mediterranean eating can help fend off heart disease, cancer and a host of other illnesses.
The 2-Day Diet ticks all the boxes, combining healthy eating with two days of restriction to boost your health and help you get to your ideal weight. The 2-Day Diet is the original, clinically proven 5: To reach your perfect weight, all you need to do is follow this low-carb intermittent diet for two days a week.
