The 5:2 Diet works on the basis of 500 calories per day for 2 days a week – whilst the rest of the week, 2000 calories per day can be consumed for women and 2500 per day for men.
500 calories a day would mean breakfast, lunch and dinner of around 120 calories each, leaving the remaining 140 calories for snacks in between.
Let's have look at some breakfasts options containing around 120 calories each.
