    Counting Calories and 5:2

    Hi All,

    I'm Em and very new to this. I am 24 and 14stone, my aim is to loose around 4 stone (although I may reassess if I get there).

    I am counting calories (1700) a day and two fast days (500) a week. My first fast was today and it was a big success.

    I drunk 2 black coffees and 2lts of water throughout the day until dinner time and I had a salmon fillet in a soy glaze with mixed stir fry vegetables (378) and finished with a packet of sweet and salty popcorn and salted caramel hot chocolate (117). So my first fast was 499 ?.

    Feel free to join in, I will update as regularly as possible!

    It's when you put a number 8 next to a ) it comes out as a sunglasses smiley! And when it's a smiley it doesn't recognise it comes out as a question mark!


    Good luck with your journey!

    Hello everyone!

    So my first fast was great and I felt really good.

    Yesterday wasn't so good though as I was taken out for dinner with work but I did eat a lot less than I would have normally. Nothing to get in my way now though.

    Today is another fast day so I have had two boiling waters with lemon and 750ml of water so far. The aim is to eat nothing until a banana at around 4o'clock as I am going swimming this evening, Then a dinner of fish and veggies. I will update later.

    Yesterday went as planned. I had a banana before swimming then a dinner of lemon sole and salad. I had enough calories left for a few slices of ham and a couple of gherkins and finished on 446 calories!

    Today was a bad day. Although I stuck close to my 2000 calorie allowance it was the wrong things. Tomorrow needs to include a lot of fruit, veg and water to make up for it!

    Breakfast
    2 eggs, 2 slices of ham and some beans (352kcal)

    Lunch
    Jacket potato with ham and cheese (575kcal)

    Snack
    A packet of sweet and salty popcorn and a small skinny latte (157kcal)

    Dinner
    3 slices of Pizza Hut BBQ meat pizza and a slice of garlic bread (989)

    Total 2073/2060

    A day of totally the wrong things to eat but I had a lovely chilled day off work, walked 3 miles with the dog and had my hair cut

    You still stayed close to your limit though, which shows thought as to the amount you had which is a good thing :-) it'd be boring if all we ate was salads so a little bit of what you shouldn't won't do any harm. As my granny used to say, everything in moderation! Xx

    Hey, welcome to my page thank you for your messages

    I managed to Palm the rest of my pizza off to my other half, all but two slices which I had for lunch (a lot less then I normally would)

    Today's food was as follows

    Breakfast
    2 eggs scrambled with semi skimmed milk and 2 slices of ham (must stop buying ham as I can't stop eating it) - 249kcal

    Lunch
    2 slices of left over pizza - 526kcal

    Dinner
    Red pepper, cucumber, olives, tomatoes, smoked salmon, king prawns and a dollop of low fat pineapple cottage cheese - 445kcal

    With a couple of coffees throughout the day I'm currently at a total of 1280.

    The boyfriend is out for dinner hence the picky food so I might treat myself to some jelly for desert and relax in the bath with a hot chocolate. I hope everyone else has a good day x

    I must make sure I come on here more lol.

    I had a lovely weekend, stuck to my calories apart from I didn't count last night as I made a roast for the family I also made a coffee and almond cake for desert which was amazing!!

    Fast day today and I had nothing but two black coffees and lots of water! I found it surprisingly easy even though I had to sit in subway and watch a colleague eat a footlong!

    I had a dinner of a three egg omelette with a small potato, cheese, onion and sweet corn and a tbsp of chilli sauce all for 514 calories - I'll have that!
