The 2:5™ by Life Extension® Nutrition Program was designed and clinically validated to help you manage your weight, especially through November-January which can be one of the toughest times of the year to maintain a normal weight.
Did you know that from November through January, the average person gains 1-2 pounds? While this may not seem like a lot, many of us don’t lose this added weight during the spring and summer months.1-3 So a 1-2 pound weight gain annually over a period of 10 years can lead to an excess of 10-20 pounds!
Why obesity should be avoided at all costs
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 an overall lower quality of life than that enjoyed by lean individuals. Obesity results in shortening of the life span by an average of eight to ten years compared to people at normal weight.
2:5 – the intermittent fasting approach to weight management
With this in mind, Life Extension® evaluated the intermittent fasting of the 2:5™ program with a randomized, controlled clinical study of overweight but otherwise healthy adults. After 52 days of using the program, participants experienced a significant body mass index reduction compared to baseline.
The 2:5™ study has also shown support and balance for healthy cholesterol levels, as well as offering a significant beneficial effect on insulin levels for those also within a normal range.
