I've just read the whole Michael Mosely book today (in the sun in the barden - bliss!). It was so interesting and I'll be doing it on a Monday and a Thursday with sw the other 5 days

Would your body get a bit confused?? There seem to be loads of people following that 5:2 diet at work, and they are VERY grumpy on the "2" days!! ;)

I did it for a few weeks and weighed daily so that I could keep a handle on what was going on. I found that I'd lose weight, sometimes up to 3lb, on the fast days but then after two days of eating normally it would go back on. I'm convinced all it does it it the body into starvation mode and interferes with the gradual, sensible loss of SW. Over three weeks of doing it I only lost 2lb, less than my usual loss in that time.

Did you find that day after ur fast you are bigger portions cos u were so hungry.

That would be my worry if I ever did this. Don't think I'll be jumping on this diet I a hurry.

from fat to skinny jeans only 50lbs to go

I work with a man who is not only a vegetarian but absolutely raves about fasting. He doesn't follow the 5:2 plan, he normally does a 3 day fast. He likes this to be Friday, Saturday and Sunday. He says not to have a heavy meal leading up to the fast and he says once he's done it he feels great! Not only that he likes to attempt a week's fasting every now and then for good measure..........
There isn't an ounce of fat on him, but I think this is down to his vegetarianism and he likes juicing with wheatgrass etc.
If it works for you then I think that's great, but personally as a migraine sufferer, missing meals is a trigger for me and so the fasting is not something I would want to attempt. I am very happy with SW.

I wasnt convinced until I read the book and am going to try it more for health benefits (who am I kidding?!!!). Your body wont go into startvation mode by fasting for less than a day

I promise if it doesnt work I'll let you know

When you say fasting do you mean literally nothing to eat all day? I've not heard of this diet :/
