London, UK (PRWEB UK) 14 February 2013
The 5:2 diet, which has gathered a great deal of media attention and a growing number of followers worldwide, has a number of problems, according to advice released by DietAssist.
Spokesman for DietAssist, Rob Woodgate, says, “The reason the 5:2 diet is so popular is that it is very simple – you eat what you want five days a week, then twice a week you restrict yourself to just 500-600 calories. However, the biggest problems people face on the 5:2 diet are food cravings and the thought of ‘starving themselves’ on the fasting days.”
According to DietAssist, who help people take control of their food cravings so that slimming becomes easier and more successful, people on intermittent fasting diets such as the 5:2 and Alternate Day Fast (ADF) diets, would be more successful long term if they learned how to make their mind work for them, rather than fighting against them.
“When you go on a fast, even for just a day, your brain starts taking action to ensure you don’t starve.” says Woodgate. “It’s a good way to discover all your emotional and habitual food triggers, but can be tough on many people.”
“The DietAssist programme makes a 5:2 intermittent fasting diet easier by helping you change your limiting beliefs about fasting, beat food cravings, and avoid emotional eating.”
The DietAssist Programme helps people who want to lose weight, but who find dieting hard work. It teaches people how to take control of their cravings so that slimming becomes easier and more successful.
DietAssist strengthens motivation and resolve and creates the optimum psychological state for dieting, and it works alongside any weight loss programme or sensible eating plan.
