Fast diet 340 calorie pork dinner

Fast diet 5-2 pork dinner

The so-called Fast Diet, or 5-2 lifestyle has become very popular, perhaps because it isn't really a diet. It is more of a lifestyle choice, and much easier to keep than a strict diet. The basic idea is that for a couple of days a week you lower the amount of food you eat to 5-600 calories for the day. It's a flexible system and up to you how you want to apply it. My personal version of this is 6-1 , once a week :)

Shown here is my recent dinner for one of those days. A nutritious 340 calorie porkchop meal that keeps your hunger at bay.

The trick is to use 0 fat when cooking and the way to manage that is to use a ceramic frying pan. Make sure you don't use more than a teaspoon of oil when serving and don't add more than 2 small spoons of potato salad! Drink water or tea. NO SUGAR!

Making your food without any added cooking fat is essential. A ceramic pan is what I use.

      @kindoak: That's interesting. Here in the United States, a punch line to a common joke is the obese person eating large quantities of food, only to wash it down with a low calorie "diet" soda. I wonder what, if any correlation there is to obesity and these substitutes actually causing what they seek to avoid?

      @Jason Sositko: I wouldn't. Even substitutes trigger a body response. Anything sugary will trigger cravings like crazy and make the fasting day more difficult. Add lemon instead of sugars to the tea. As for everyday sugars / substitutes - they are pretty easy to quit. Takes about 2 weeks.

      @kindoak: I am actually going to start this today, I am going to substitute the pork chop with a chicken breast for today. I drink a lot of green tea mixed with black tea. What's your opinion on sugar substitutes? I know they all have reported problems, not sure if the science is clear, I do stay away from white sugar as much as possible.

      @Jason Sositko: My usual intake is 2000 - 2200 depending on activity. I'm not a very muscular man so it would be higher for others. Even if the average intake would be too high, just semi-fasting a day a week would make a noticeable difference.

      My tip is to skip breakfast- just drink coffee, tea, water etc - then eat extremely little during early afternoon - say 2-ish., make sure you get some salt. My special is a couple of olives in water + an apple. That will keep you alive until "dinner time". This way, you have about 500k for the dinner which is enough to get a good stomach fill and sleep easy.

      That pork chop is looking good. I am intrigued by this diet or lifestyle choice, what is your normal daily calorie intake? I used to do a 1 day fast a week, not sure why I got away from that. I always felt better mentally after it. I might give this a try as an alternative.
