2:5 Diet
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

HI, My ortho surgeon is suggesting I try the 2:5 diet, fast two non consecutive days a week 500 calories only then eat normally 5 days a week.
Has anyone been doing this diet?
How do you find it impacts Type II diabetes ?
Are you getting god results?

Many thanks

The 5:2 diet means you lose weight quickly but I know I would be having hypos on the 2 low kj days. Best ask your diabetes educator but don't try it without asking a professional.

My experience with the slice and dice vascular surgeons is not great. If I had not found 'Unicity Balance" at the end of last year and lost over 36 kgs these s&d men would have cut off two of my toes. I was admitted to RPH in April, with severe foot ulcers which weren't healing. The diabetes specialist on reviewing my weight loss and the associated improvement in all my other blood indicators saved my limbs and I am whole today because of the "Unicity Products" Furthermore I eat normal food, stuff I like.Go to Unicity Movement on the net and discover for yourself real products that will help you cure your diabetes. That's my goal

My doctor recommended this same diet for me so I'd also be interested in hearing if anyone is doing it and what their results are.
