The Plenish Way

What is the 5:2 diet?

Popularised in the early 2010’s, the 5:2 diet builds on the concept of intermittent fasting. For five days a week, you eat a normal healthy and balanced diet, and then for two non-consecutive days a week you simply reduce your calorie intake to around 25% of your usual daily intake to around 500-800 calories per day.

What are the benefits?

Intermittent fasting, and specifically the 5:2 diet is a slower, more consistent approach to weight loss. Researchers have found that more people stick to the 5:2 diet for longer, simply because it’s easier to focus on two days of control rather than the full week. Additional benefits include improved insulin resistance, lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.


The Plenish Story

When our founder Kara moved from New York to London in 2012, there was much she loved about her new home but one thing she desperately missed. After years of fighting off illness and fatigue, Kara had a break-through when a nutritionist transformed her diet with nutrient-rich, cold-pressed juices. She simply couldn’t find in the UK, so she started making them in her kitchen using the finest organic produce she could find. First they were just for her, then for friends and eventually she started a website. Ten years later, our cold-pressed juices, shots u0026amp; plant-based milks are now sold in thousands of stores across the UK and we’ve sold millions of drinks from our online store. We’ve grown quickly but at the heart of Plenish is still the pursuit of perfect ingredients and the mission to keep their natural goodness intact, all the way to the glass.
