    Hi all,

    I have 8 stone to lose and was wondering if 5:2 would help me lose this weight or is it more of a maintenance plan than a weight loss plan. I have read so much conflicting information and I hope somebody can help advise me.

    Thank you so much xxx

    It'll definitely help you lose weight! There is a fasting calculator online to advise your tdee kcals which you shouldn't go over on non fast days and the number of fasting days will depend on how quickly you want to lose the weight. You shouldn't have consecutive fasting days though. Xxx

    Hi Davey, I have a friend who like Carrie did 5:2 and some 4:3 days and she lost 4 stones. As Carrie says the TDEE calculator will help set the calories for non fasting days. Whilst my friend didn't count calories on non fasting days she still was strict with her intake of carbs etc and I think being mindful and having salads and healthy foods not eating inbetween meals and water helped her.

    I think doing a plan that you feel you can stick to is crucial regardless of how much weight one has to lose - I have such a small amount in comparison to lose but I have struggled on and off and yo yo 'ed so clearly do not follow my method of weight loss! Good luck on starting your weight loss journey and I am sure you will do well.

    Yes, weight loss is very doable on 5:2, or 4:3 if you feel you want to, I am currently doing 4:3. It isn't as hard as you might think and certainly worth a try.
