The 2 day diet has been developed specifically to help women reduce their weight and their risk of breast cancer. Being overweight increases the risk of breast and other cancers, so it makes sense to aim to keep your weight within reasonable limits.
Carrying too much weight also increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, stroke and sleep problems.
Research shows that losing just 10lbs body weight can reduce the risk of breast cancer by 25-40%, to which is say WOW, that is impressive!
Unlike other diets which require rigorous calorie counting, the 2 day plan requires you to eat a high protein , no carbs diet for 2 days, and then to follow a healthy eating plan, based upon the Mediterranean diet for 5 days.
The extra protein is a great filler and you will not feel as hungry as usual. Being really low in calories for 2 days helps the body burn fat and the protein means your muscles are kept in good condition.
The diet is suitable for meat eaters and vegetarians and there is a really useful recipe book to inspire your cooking.
I think it is best not to look on the 2 day as a diet, but as plan for life.
