Well there is a new weight loss craze sweeping Britain and now -- in this country it's called the five to diet.
Eat what you want five days a week in the other two days you eat very little you don't start yourself but you come close joining me now weight loss specialist doctors who Dakotas.
Our own talk about the from the break this I think this diet I -- against most diets but I think this one makes some sense that you disagree wouldn't say there.
I really think it can be dangerous for a lot of people sort could be the fat diet to nowhere -- the we -- say for certain specific groups if you're older and you have hard issues yes it's very dangerous for people who have heart conditions because.
If you become -- -- -- neck and you cardiac disease you can have a heart attack wanted to be very dangerous and it could also went to appear return medications.
Let's talk a little bit about exactly what the diet is we've described it broadly say -- -- includes several days the week what you like for five days 600 calories each for two days.
So that breaks into maybe a couple of ads for -- there is some grilled chicken and -- -- -- that's it my friends and fish and rice noodles for dinner two days a week he would do that.
Now you say that it would be bad but you would -- Some fast break you might that this is the thing we know that fasting can be good short term I mean look at the case -- He had to fast a lot now when you factor -- some levels can go down.
Your insulin can become more sensitive.
And also hormones like testosterone and growth hormone.
Which are very important for weight maintenance and which a lot of us stop producing as we get older that can go up but if you're doing this you know Leo thank.
Where for two days your fasting and then the rest of the time you're eating whatever you want to eat.
Excited that thank you say your blood -- is going to be all over the it can be yes and also your insulin -- not to know what to ditto.
Because for two days you're controlling it and then the other days the insulin has to spike up because you're eating all this other food -- Doctor says this isn't the first diet out there this that supposed to -- sort of like cave man there is the cave man diet.
But that's all they're all meet all the time and for its damaged well actually I -- I believe that the cave and the -- -- diet.
Has a lot of basic fiber.
And it's vegetables it's not rain this not -- -- foods it's things that grew naturally.
When our genes were evolving and this is when we were -- met so you like this I do like it -- it's hearing -- to the human body.
But something like this I mean for.
Just basically starve somebody for two days and then say for five days you can -- -- -- what eight.
That -- make sense to make his most people unless they're on an appetite suppressants are not going to be able to do that.
Tell me the best way to diet that lets say I don't want to take drugs.
I want to lose weight.
What's the best way to accomplish that would -- do with my diet I do believe -- intermittent periods of fasting know what I mean by that is -- should have an early dinner.
Let's say before 5 PM.
And fast until early morning the next day and that would be easy.
Said that what you do vanish or in some level becomes much more sensitive the levels go down and that's when you burn your fact.
So that's very I can handle that so I eat dinner -- -- for a thirty.
Because I'm hungry then and then all night long and in the morning at a decent -- absolutely and I think you're gonna lose weight that way I do not tell people to grace.
That is not a good idea because when -- grazing what do you do here in some levels are spiking up and that's not when you would have happened when you're in some -- spike or go up even a little bit.
You're not able to burn -- -- -- I always learn something from you every time you -- here thanks for coming on good to see you thank you.
