Sometimes when you’re on a roll, you just gotta keep writing.
So… The 5:2 diet is very popular in Sweden at the moment.
It’s the one where you eat whatever you want five days a week and starve yourself the remaining two days.
Maybe you can tell I don’t think it’s a good idea?
Especially not when I’m starting to see a LOT of articles about what you can do to keep yourself from feeling hungry, how to make each meal last, how to eat slower, etc,etc,etc.
I don’t think publishing a how-to-guide about eating disorders in the papers is a good way to go.
(I don’t care if you think that periodic fasting is good and how wonderful it is for the body, ladila… It’s the culture around it that’s AWFUL.)
And if I read one more article about how VERY thin celebrities “don’t starve themselves but simply eat healthy and exercise” I’m going to scream.
