    Today has been a good day... got homemade shepherds pie waiting for me when I get home.

    Tomorrow is my fasting day, I have planned it all out.

    I have got an activity yoghurt for breakfast (100kcal)
    Covent Garden Skinny Soup for lunch
    (107kcal)
    Fruit Snack Pack
    (40kcal)
    Ocean Pie for Dinner
    (265kcal)
    Jelly
    (10kcal)

    That equals 522kcal, I know it's a little.over but I plan on doing 20 mins of walking so the walking should take my calorie intake to below 500.

    :)

    You can do 2 fast days in a row but it makes it really hard for you, much easier to split your down days.

    Not really sure what went wrong, planned what I was going to eat but my plan failed.

    I had my yoghurt in the morning and about 2 hours later I was hungry and I started getting really bad hunger pains. I persevered for a little bit but the pain got to much and had to eat something.

    So how does everyone cope on their fast days?
    What do you have to eat?

    I don't eat in the morning at all. It has always been the case (dieting or not) that I can't really face food first thing and then the earlier I eat the hungrier I get. If I had something first thing on a DD I'd have eaten my own arm by lunchtime :) I don't eat at all (LOTS and LOTSof water, green tea, coffee) until about 4pm, then I usually have bran flakes and yogurt, then ready meal about 6pm, snack about 9 if I want it and that's it. You have to work out what suits you and your lifestyle though. This is very doable if you can find a way to get through the DDs. I now find them easier than the UDs!
