This has quite a following in the UK and I wondered if it was something new to you? Also called the 5:2 Diet, its basic tenet is to eat normal food for 5 days per week and on the other two, non-consecutive, you have very low cal days, 500 for women and 600 for men.Weight-loss is a side-effect, the diet itself shows promise in stopping Type 2 Diabetes, lowering cholesterol and risk of the usual middle age health-hazards.http://www.amazon.com/Fast-Diet-Dr-Michael-Moseley/dp/178072...Where it scores points over all other diets is in the deprivation feeling. On a low cal day, if you're denying yourself some high calorific treat, you know you can actually eat that item the next day. In practise, often you don't want it when you can have it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19112549http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19112549Quite a few of us are trying it and swapping experiences on the UK Weight Control board http://boards.fool.co.uk/weight-control-50960.aspx and two people have reported anecdotally that their asthma has lessened to the extent of not needing inhalers.Rune
