Fasting 2 days per week :This is also known as 5:2 diet. Fasting two days a week with restricted calorie intake is the idea here. On two fasting days women are recommended to eat 500 calories and men 600 calories (500-600 calories).
On normal five days one can eat normal number of calories and still being two days calorie intake is restricted between 500-600. It means, on two fasting days say Tuesday and Friday person will consume two small meals 250 calories for women and 300 for men.
This type of fasting is also called fast diet and was popularized by Dr. Michael Mosley, a British journalist. Fasting two days need not to be back to back and can be any days in a week.
