    I can't see there is another forum for the 5:2 diet and I know this is similar but not quite the same.

    on my 2nd week doing 5:2, lost 2 lbs last week but struggling with it this week! no idea why.

    many thanks

    Yea, I'm following the 5:2 plan - only started on Monday. I plan to do a half fast day on a Saturday and not eat until the evening. Doable for me as I spend Saturdays running around LOL

    My fast days are Monday & Thursdays. Weighin Fridays

    I find the fast days def get easier as u go on tho yesterday I totally pigged out (had about 2700 cals!!) so am worried I've blown this :-(

    Hi, I started JUDDD yesterday, but would ideally like to be doing 5:2 than 4:3 which is what I'm doing this week. I'll be keeping a close eye on the scales, and will be very keen to see how people on 5:2 are getting on, so please do keep updating as you go :)

    I quite enjoyed my first fast, managed 26 hours calorie free, but I must say I am hungry this morning, even after my crumpets, and I'm looking forward to my hotdogs later :) I am strictly counting calories on both up days and down days, mostly because I am so worried about gaining. I imagine I will do some tweaking over the weeks, but plan to give it at least 4 weeks to see if its for me.

    My 5:2 days are Monday and Wednesday and weigh in Thursday evening. Lost 2 lb the first week but put a pound on this week! :( think I pigged out too much after my down days. I could not seem to get rid of the hungry feeling after Wednesday.

    I'm fasting today in honour of Pancake Day tomorrow! It's the first year in years I've not been fretting about the calories/points/syns/carbs in pancakes so I'm jolly excited!

    Does everyone count their calories on an up day?

    I do, but it's my first week so I just want to keep safe and know what's going in, so I can tweak it over the weeks if I need to.
