The 5:2 diet is one of the most popular weight loss methods at the moment and is considered a more flexible and easier alternative to other diets. The 5:2 diet plan combines elements of intermittent fasting and calorie intake control to create a non-restrictive method to manage weight and improve the quality of life.
The Buddhist diet is designed to be compatible with the Five Precepts of Buddhism, the fourth largest religion in the world. The Buddhist diet has been resurgent in recent years after the 2016 publication of Buddha’s Diet: The Ancient Art of Losing Weight Without Losing Your Mind by Dan Zigmond and Tara Cottrel. It applies what is known as intermittent fasting, a method to time restrict meals in order to give space for the body to recover from digestion.
