Started the 5:2 diet this week. I have previously done weight watchers and over the past 2 and a half years the weight has crept back on. I wanted to try something g different this time and this one is the one I'm trying.
I did my first day of 500 calories on weds. I found it surprisingly easy but that's probably down to do 12 hour shifts and don't usually get time to eat if busy. My 500 calorie days will be days I work. I had 546 that days. I was pretty chuffed with that. I have to have breakfast lunch and dinner though. Although breakfast is on the Go so usually a banana or apple.
Just trying to find some 300 calorie dinners to make. This week was leftover spaghetti Bolognese from night before inside a large flat mushroom. Definitely having that again. Got to allow extra calories for some breadcrumbs on top though. I needed a crunch as missed the garlic bread. Thinking tomorrow will be a 500 calorie day. I am looking forward to it. But need to find a suitable lunch as feel I will get bored of salads. X
