So what is the Fast Philosophy? The Fast Philosophy is a convenient, easy-to-follow, tasty and nutritionally-complete eating plan based on the principles of intermittent fasting, and specifically designed around your lifestyle and weight loss goals. Because your diet should work around you, not you around your diet. And what exactly is intermittent fasting? Have you heard of the 5:2 or 16:8 plans? These are both ways you can fast intermittently. By “fasting” we don’t actually mean you eat nothing – instead, we’re talking about restricting your calorie intake to about 25% of your normal daily intake on ‘fasting’ days. It’s a way of eating that’s been around for ages and one that could provide health benefits. And the “intermittent” bit? That means you don’t do it every day, but rather on a couple of days a week.
