The 5:2 diet: What to eat on non-fasting days

The 5:2 diet has become one of the most popular ways to lose weight, relying on an intermittent fasting approach.

Experts even claim that following the diet can improve lifespan, brain function and protect against conditions such as Alzheimer's and heart disease.
