Confused by The New 5:2 Diet? Discover your perfect plan with my easy peasy quiz
Well, you can tell we’ve had a glimpse of sun. The parks and pavements have been packed with colourful clothes – and dazzlingly pale winter flesh. Oh, and my New 5:2 Diet Cookbook has suddenly gone roaring up the Amazon charts! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one feeling a bit nervous as I peel off the winter layers.
Whether you’re a newbie or you’ve followed the 5:2 diet before, take a look at the new version. It’s got all the fat-busting power of the original but with new recipes, a more generous 800 calorie allowance on the diet days – and three ways of following the programme.
Diets come and go but it looks like 5:2 is here to stay – probably because it’s so effective and only needs two days a week of proper self-discipline. And with my new three-way approach, it’s even easier to fit it into your lifestyle.
Because we all love an online quiz (well, I do anyway!), I’ve put together a really quick little Q&A to discover your dieting personality and get you on the right 5:2 programme that’s going to work for you. You’ll be slipping into those summer dresses in no time.
