The 5:2 diet has been used by millions of people across the globe to shed kilos, but now its key principals could save you cash.

Those on the 5:2 eating plan slash their daily energy intake to five or six hundred calories for two days each week.

Ms House recommended using a smart phone app, such as Track My Spend, to be less inclined to mindlessly “tap and go”.

She also advised on money “fasting” days to:

  • Take a packed lunch to work or having your coffee at home,  and limit café spending to the weekends.
  • Try make your pantry stretch another day or two before doing the weekly groceries.

Ms House also said it was important to set a goal for how much you want to save, and what for.

“It’s kind of like a weight loss goal… very similar,” she said.

Queensland woman and money “dieter” Denna Szwajkowski said tracking her spending was “confronting.”

“There were a lot of unnecessary expenses,” Ms Szwajkowski said.
