'Fasting diet' fad could be unhealthy
from MyHealthNewsDaily via Mother Nature Network
The latest diet craze claims to help people lose weight through intermittent fasting, but some nutritionists say it's a bad idea. People on the "5:2 diet" can eat whatever they want for five days a week, but must then fast for two. On the fasting days, dieters must eat one-fourth of their typical daily calories, about 500 calories for women and 600 for men.
