Health Benefits at a Glance:
The cornerstone of the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program is the intermittent fasting principle, where two consecutive days a week, you eat fewer calories than your body needs. This weight management method has been scientifically studied and can help you to lose or maintain your weight, without the hassle of having to count calories constantly. With the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program, you will eat protein bars and shakes two consecutive days a week, while eating a normal diet the remaining days of the week. Moreover, the program comes with a predefined mix of daily dietary supplements that provide that extra boost to the goals of the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program.
Why it Works:
Did you know that from November through January, the average person gains 1–2 pounds [1-3]? While this may not seem like a lot, many of us don’t lose this added weight during the spring and summer months . With just a 1–2–pound weight gain annually over a period of 10 years, that can lead to an excess of 10–20 pounds!
Over 50% of the adult population in Europe is overweight or obese (Eurostat, 2014). Around the world, the prevalence of obesity has nearly doubled from 1980 to 2008 (Stevens 2012).
Being overweight or obese significantly increases the risk of multiple health conditions including cardiovascular and joint problems or high blood pressure. Excess body weight also affects mobility, interferes with restful sleep, contributes to digestive problems and can contribute to overall lower quality of life than that enjoyed by lean individuals. Obesity results in shortening of lifespan by an average of eight to ten years compared to people at the recommended weight.
2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program rests on the intermittent fasting principle and helps you manage your weight through this scientifically studied weight management method.
With bars and shakes in the 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program, you will be cutting calories two days a week, without the hassle of having to count them. The remaining five days of the week you can eat a regular diet - and still cut calories with ease. The 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program comes with a predefined mix of supplements that provide extra support for this scientifically studied weight management program.
