5:2 The Fasting Diet

The diet has risen in popularity over recent years due to its simplicity and coverage in various documentaries and studies.

So what is the 5:2 diet?

Based on the principle know as intermittent fasting (IF) where you eat normally at certain times and fast during the others, the plan is quite simple. You eat normally for 5 days of the week and fast on the remaining two.This works by cutting your calorie intake for those 2 days to a 1/4 of their normal level. It is suggested to have between 500-600 calories if you are female or 600-700 if you are male.  The success of this diet relies on not over eating during your normal eating days.

Although is simple and effective, this type of diet does not produce the best weight loss results due to it intermittent nature. So if you are looking for faster weight loss it is recommended that you look at the other Low Calorie Diet plans.

Really yummy with good results *


Price is good, process is simple and the products are consumable which is a good start. A lot of willpower is required to stick to the TFRD version, but the products do a good job of preventing hunger pangs. I’m 4 weeks in, managing so far and intend to do the full 12 weeks. The results so far have been pleasing and have kept me motivated. The products I’ve tried range from enjoyable to intolerable. The chocolate shake, banana shake and vegetable soup are enjoyable. The mint chocolate shake and caramel shake are ok. The tomato soup and chicken soup are bearable, but not nice. The white chocolate and raspberry shake is terrible - chemical taste and really chalky texture - I’ve had to give up on those and accept the loss.Overall this is a good system, but I would recommend that you try every product you intend to use before buying a 6 week supply - I tried a few and foolishly made the assumption that all the products would be as good as the ones I tried. *


All the products that I have tried so far, i have enjoyed but I particularly liked the banana and also the chocolate shakes. *


shakes are so tasty *

Looking to achieve ketosis?

Woman Keto Diet Man Keto Diet

Unsure what ketosis is? Don’t worry, simply choose our easier to follow regular plans as you will achieve the same great weight loss.

You will see similar rapid weight loss on all our plans. There are only minor differences in the plans, so choose the correct one for your lifestyle.

Whenever you would like! As long as you are consuming all your products and meals evenly spaced out throughout the day it does not matter if you have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Find what suits you best.

Weight loss is a very individual thing and is based on your metabolism, starting weight and lifestyle etc. This said very low calorie diets such as this do encourage more rapid weight loss than traditional diets. If you read the reviews and success stories, customers have lost anywhere between 1 and 10 stone.

If you feel the need for a meal one day then simply follow the guidelines for the “with meal” plans. Also if you do not have the time for your meal on the “with meal” plans then simply replace it with another Shake That Weight product. This should not affect you weight loss.

This plan will result in the similar amounts of weight loss as our others. All Shake That Weight diet plans can result in ketosis/release of ketones and offer similar amounts of weight loss to this plan. The difference between this and our other plans is this is less about calorie counting, and more about limiting the total number of carbs you consume a day. It also has more limitations on which meal products you can have and things you can drink than the other plans.
