New research from the CSIRO suggests that a ‘flexi diet’ could be the key to successful and sustainable weight loss. The ‘flexi diet’ combines intermittent fasting with meal replacements and one day a week where individuals can eat and drink anything they like. The 16 week trial resulted in participants losing an average of 11kg while also seeing improvements in cholesterol, insulin, glucose and blood pressure.

So, should you be following a ‘flexi diet’? Well, as with any ‘diet’, what works for some people may not work for others. What is important is that you find something that works best for you in the long term.
