Fasting Diets are not new. The 5:2 diet was popular when people started using it to melt the pounds away a few years ago.

According to those who have tried fasting diets, the successes have come in many forms. Apart from the weight loss it has literally changed their lives!

During the Every Other Day Diet, you’ll have ‘fasting days’ where you’ll eat a restricted amount of calories. These days will be followed by ‘feast days’ where you’ll eat anything you’d like. In return you’ll enjoy more energy, clearer skin and a healthier body.

The Research

The above graphic from Prevention shows some of the benefits that have been found to come from fasting on alternate days. Krista Varady, co-author of The Every Other Day Diet is an associate professor of nutrition at Uni of Illinois at Chicago.

Before writing the book, she leads a 3-year study sponsored by the National Institute of Health and published numerous papers shared in journals like The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Varady’s research led to findings that showed that intermittent fasting is a viable diet strategy that can help people lose weight without feeling deprived, and make them healthier.

Just check out some of the benefits of Fasting according to Health Digezt. According to a recently published article by the program Vital Signs, fasting can put the body into a state that can help lead to the regeneration of cells.

“As cells are killed and the body goes into standby, your stem cells switch on,” says Professor of Gerontology at USC Davis, Valter Longo. Once these stem cells are activated, they can help to regenerate previously lost cells and organ mass, meaning your body will function years younger than you are”

The Guardian also recently published an article focused on fasting too. It outlined that a recent study was done on type 2 diabetes patients who fasted for long periods of time.

The results showed that this restrictive eating actually helped cure their disease. Although the data isn’t completely conclusive, “we do have promising data” says Longo.

The Results

Success stories have poured into emails and social media pages, showing incredible weight loss and amazing health bonuses.

The photo above from Carly, who lost over 80 pounds following the Every Other Day Diet is just one example. Another commenter on the Facebook page said:

“About 100 days in, I can walk over 9 k at a time (instead of being exhausted after walking around 2 blocks) and have lost 30+ pounds”. Another comment reads “Not a fad based on my husband’s blood work which hasn’t been this good in 40 years”.

Here’s another astonishing result from Kristina’s Facebook Page. Marc lost over 90 pounds in 9 months.

He also lost 9 inches from his waist and his blood pressure dropped by 15%. These are real people and exciting results.

 How To Do The Every Other Day Diet

The premise of the diet is that you’ll be alternating days of eating as you normally would with days of fasting and eating only 500 calories. Although the book goes over everything with a fine tooth comb, here is how the diet works:


  • On day 1, your fasting day, eat 500 calories. Dr, Varady recommends eating them all at lunch, along with specific nutrition guidelines in the book.
  • On day 2, your feasting day, east as you normally would.
  • Continue alternating days.

 

This pattern continues until you have dropped the weight you desire. The book further goes into how to maintain your weight reasonably, and how to go about preparing a 500 calorie meal that will supercharge your weight loss.
It also gives sample menus and shopping lists, plus ways to overcome hunger pangs and more. You can grab your book here.
