The 2-Day Diet, The New Clinically Approved Approach for Lasting Weight Loss

Most diets don’t work; this one has been scientifically tested and is proven to work. Dieting for two days a week and still losing weight might sound too good to be true, but in clinical trials followers of The 2-Day Diet lost twice as much fat and more centimeters around their waist than those on a continuous calorie-controlled diet. Research showed that this new approach to weight-loss can work even for serial dieters, and followers of The 2-Day Diet were also much more likely to keep off the weight they had lost than those who followed conventional calorie controlled diets.


Clinically tested, The 2-Day Diet also has 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 well-being, mood and energy levels. It is a unique way of eating and one that has been shown to help rejuvenate the body on a cellular level.


Developed in the UK by cancer prevention specialists, Dr Michelle Harvie and Prof Tony Howell, from Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention, The 2-Day Diet is nutritionally balanced, safe and easy to follow. 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 you simply eat normally but sensibly – ideally eating a healthy Mediterranean type diet. As The 2-Day Diet helps followers retrain their appetites, they will find themselves naturally inclined to eat less, even on non-restricted days.


The 2-Day Diet is packed with clear and simple guidance, meal planners and over 65 delicious and filling recipes to help you on your way. There are also options for vegetarians. The authors explain how and why the diet works and detail the health benefits of losing weight and keeping it off.


It really is that simple. Finally you can enjoy your food and stop worrying about your weight for good!


Key features of The 2-Day Diet:


• On restricted days dieters control their carbohydrate and calorie intake but can eat protein, nuts, healthy fats and vegetables. On non-restricted days dieters eat normal, healthy foods making sure they keep within existing daily calorie intake guidelines.


• The 2-Day Diet’s unique approach to intermittent dieting is dramatically more effective than conventional everyday dieting: in clinical trials people on The 2-Day Diet had a remarkable 65% success rate of losing weight (the success rate of other conventional daily calorie-controlled diets trialled is between 20 - 40%).


• Followers of The 2-Day Diet lost twice as much fat as those on a continuous calorie-controlled diet (between 5–6kg over three months) and more centimeters around their waist.


• Dieters on The 2-Day Diet lost fat twice as quickly as those on conventional daily diets.


• Overweight women (with a BMI of 25.0 or more) significantly increase their risk of developing breast and some other cancers. Losing as little as 11 pounds can cut the risk of breast cancer by 25–40%.
