Intermittent Fasting 5:2 1600
The Intermittent Fasting 5:2 1600 template provides 7 days of meal plans each consisting of 5-6 meals each day.
30% protein, 40% carb. 30% fat Creator: Suzanne Fisher, LD RD
The 5:2 Intermittent Fasting meal plan follows a pattern of 1-2 fast days per week, yet not on consecutive days. Users are not to exceed 2 fasts per week with 5 days of healthy balanced eating.
On fast days, users only consume tea, coffee, plain or sparkling water. Normal eating is resumed after 24 hours. For example: begin fast at 7:00 pm and resume normal eating at 7:00 pm the next day.
No specifics on what you can eat post fast. On non-fasting days there are no specific dietary guidelines. We have however ensured that non-fasting days are varied, balanced and rich in lean protein, whole grains and phytonutrient fruit and vegetables.
It is encouraged to consume 20-30 grams of high quality protein every 2 to 4 hours for a total of approximately 100g/day.
