The IF or 2/5 diet craze seems to be sweeping the nation. There cannot be a newspaper or magazine that hasn’t run a feature on it and a spot check around the office shows that there are a significant number of followers. It even raised its head last week in a disciplinary when cited as the reason for some quite serious mistakes being made. The individual blamed the lack of calories for tiredness and poor concentration – resulting in the mistakes being made. It seems than rather than spreading the 500 calories throughout the day she was saving them for the evening – resulting in the tiredness and loss of concentration mid afternoon when the critical calculation errors were made. Will the written warning make the dieter think twice – one suspects not if the power of the media is anything to go by, – we are, after all (if the magazines are to be believed) approaching bikini season.
