In this video, Dr. Berg explains why you should NOT do the 5:2 intermittent fasting program. 5:2 means for 5 days you are eating regularly with no restrictions to what you eat and for 2 days you lowered your calories by 75%. First of all, the 5:2 diet is not even intermittent fasting because you are just lowering your calories.
Here are two reasons why this is not recommended..
1. You are not going to adapt to a full state of ketosis.
2. No standard of what to eat.
Recommendation: Do intermittent fasting every single day and do it correctly – start with 16:8 daily, then if you are comfortable with the ratio, start shortening the eating window a little bit to notice better results.
