    My VLCD/5:2 Experiment

    Hi all. I love 5:2 and have found it's a great way for me to maintain weight, but I don't seem to lose anything. I'm pretty sure that's mostly down to my eating habits during non-fast days rather than the diet though! So I'm going to try a mix of vlcd and 5:2. I'm going to do vlcd for a week (currently on day 2), then do a week of 4:3, then two weeks of 5:2, then do it all over again! My aim is to lose 7lbs every 4 weeks. I'm currently 20st 2lb (horrific, the biggest I've ever been :-( ) so I have lots to lose and I'm in it for the long haul! I'll keep you all up to date with my progress. Any support greatly appreciated!

    Hello! Here to subscribe

    Sounds like a good plan! Don't think I could ever do VLCDs tho, even for a week at time. Admire anyone with the will power to do it!

    Good luck.

    Hi Juju, your plan sounds quite complicated to me. From what I've read about the 5:2 diet, is that it's really a plan for maintaining weight rather than losing weight

    Did'nt get to finish my reply off. I have started juddd, which is alternate day fasting. You can eat 20% of your normal calorie intakes on the fast days, which should see a bigger weight loss. The higher % you increase it to, the lower the weight loss. You don't calorie count on your non fast days, only on your fast days.

    I've just started this, and yet to see a loss yet, as still maintaining, but hopefully will see something soon, as I've been having more than 20% whilst I am getting used to this in my first week. It's getting easier though, and I look forward to my non fast days.

    So, I'm nearly half way through my vlcd week. The first few days were hard going but it's been much easier today. Really hoping I will be able to maintain a good amount of what I lose this week with 5:2 - we shall see!

    Yay, glad it's getting easier - though must still be a relief when it's over!! Any idea what you've lost so far? Or are you not a compulsive scale hopper like me, lol

    5lbs as of this morning. I'm hoping for a little over 7lbs so I have a bit more rebound room when I come off it. Ketosis has kicked in so the worst is over. I'm a scale obsessive to the core!!

    One week of VLCD done. I won't lie - it was a real struggle. I just had a piece of toast though and it was the nicest thing I've ever put in my mouth!! I have lost 9lbs this week and hope to keep at least 7lbs of it off after 3 weeks of intermittent fasting.
    So now I move on to the fasting part, so this week I'm going to do 4:3. I'm going to have Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday as my Fast days. I'm going to try very hard not to get on the scales after non-fast days - although I know it will be a challenge! My weigh-in will be on Friday morning so let's hope I don't put it all back on in a week!!
