The 5:2 diet has received yet another thumbs up from the celebrity world, this time coming from TV presenter Phillip Schofield. It has also been claimed that the diet has proved successful for Beyonce, Liv Tyler, Ben Affleck and many more high profile dieters.
Mr Schofield has so far lost nine pounds on the plan in just three weeks. In order to be successful, you must fast for 2 days a week on the diet and eat a normal regular diet for the other 5 days. During fast days, just 500 calories are allowed for women and 600 for men.
It certainly seems to be this years most high profile diet. Whether it will last remains to be seen but certainly for now it seems to be producing results. Have a read of our 5:2 diet review. The book has already been reprinted 13 times.
