Is anyone following the 5:2 plan from the daily mail? This allows you more to eat than the fasting and is supposed to have similar benefits. I did the first day yesterday and I wasn't too hungry. You are supposed to eat more protein and fat, and the veg and fruit is limited although I think quite sufficient. I must admit I am really hungry this morning and breakfast is 2 rashers bacon and 1/2 tin of tomatoes and a mug of milky coffee. Lunch will be 3 egg omelette and 1 tomato, Tea will be fish and green beans with strawberries to follow and for my snacks 4 tablespoons of nuts and celery and another milky coffee before I go to bed.
