Ultimate 5:2 diet for her and him

This may be of interest to others like me, that know they have expanded their waistline, (mine was expanded to start with), over the festive season and need to do something.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


HOW DOES IT WORK?

One of the main things that intermittent fasting seems to do is switch on repair genes — genes whose job it is to keep the various bits of your body in good shape. The reason this happens is not fully understood; however, the evolutionary argument goes something like this. As long as we have plenty of food, our bodies remain in constant ‘go-go’ mode; it is like driving a car with your foot constantly on the accelerator.

When you fast, the body’s initial reaction is one of shock. Signals go to the brain reminding you that you are hungry, urging you to find something to eat. But you resist. The body decides there must be a famine, so there is little point wasting energy on growth: instead, it gets cracking on some of the urgent maintenance tasks that it might have been putting off.

As part of this repair process, the body breaks down and recycles old and tired cells (in a process called autophagy or ‘self eat’) getting rid of damaged or ageing parts to keep everything else in good working order.

Fasting, it seems, also sparks the production of new cells. Recently, Professor Valter Longo of the University of Southern California published a study showing, for the first time, that fasting can switch on stem cells and regenerate the immune system.

This has significance in the fight against cancer. Being able to create new white cells and build a more powerful immune system not only keeps infections at bay but also means mutating cells that might turn into a cancer are destroyed by the immune system long before they can multiply.

There were initial concerns among the scientific community that fasting could harm the immune system, because when you starve, your system tries to save energy by recycling damaged immune cells. In the long run, this would be harmful, making you more vulnerable to infections.

But Professor Longo discovered that if you fast for a very short period, and then eat, you get a re-bound effect, with the creation of new, more active cells. ‘We could not have predicted that fasting would have such a remarkable effect,’ he says.

I am now convinced that intermittent fasting could have a game-changing effect on the nation’s health.

Re: Ultimate 5:2 diet for her and him

When I feel the pounds creeping on Norman, this is what I do, for both of us. Started about 2 years ago, and it works for us, in the 2 years since started I have dropped 10 lbs, which is only what I wanted to lose and have stayed at my ideal weight for a considerable time now.

It is not a long term diet either and really does get your metabolism working.

Re: Ultimate 5:2 diet for her and him

The main problem I find with this and other diets is constipation.
Sensible comments and solutions welcome.

Re: Ultimate 5:2 diet for her and him

If you do the 5.2 diet Billy, the answer is pulses and beans, I do a beans and lentil soup after the fasting days, and plenty of fruit. Must admit, we have never had this problem.

Re: Ultimate 5:2 diet for her and him

For several months before xmas my food intake dropped quite a bit, also I was more active and expected to at least lose a couple of lbs, did I, NO. Xmas day + the 4 days following, I really pigged out, and dreaded getting on the scales, but felt like I had put on some weight, so mustered up the courage, and..... I had lost 4lbs, could not believe this.
