500 calorie meal plans for the 5:2 diet

The 5:2 diet is all about sticking to a healthy 2000 calories for five days and fasting on no more than 500 calories for two days – which means you can still eat your cake and lose the pounds! Not sure you can manage on 500 calories? Then read on to discover our favourite, filling 500 calorie meal plans for the 5:2 diet.

The diets featured on this website are designed for healthy adults over the age of 18.

Meal plan 1

Breakfast:Kickstart the morning with a mini bagel – halve and toast, spread each side with 2tsp of low fat cream cheese. Calories so far: 96 cals.

Lunch: Chunky soups are a great way to fill you up at lunch, whilst still keeping the calorie count low. We love a bowl of Weight Watchers from Heinz Tuscan Minestrone soup (129 cals). Calories so far: 225.

Dinner: Creamy kormas aren’t off the menu, as our version is low cal at 186 calories. You’ve got calories for a low-cal snack, so why not go for a tasty Weight Watchers Summer Fruits Yoghurt (60 cals). Total intake for the whole day: 471
