Decided I might try the 5:2

So starting from today i'm on the 5:2 diet!

Mondays and Thurs/Fri are gonna be my fast days, and i'll still be good the other days (aiming for 1400 cals the rest of the time)

So far today I've had a chicken salad which came to 198 cals, so that leaves me 300 for tea - simples!

I'm scared lol!

Oh hello thread! I lost you
Was supposed to do my second fast yday but I ended up going over by too much so done it today instead and I've been so good!

Going okay so far, feel really motivated and I'm loving the recipes that were in last weekend's Daily Mirror, they're sooo tasty. I'm finding it easier than I thought I would, only because I keep telling myself "I can have that tomorrow", so it's not like I'm depriving myself iykwim?

So far this week when I've jumped on my own scales I'm down about 1-2lbs already, but my scales are wrong anyway so we'll see on Saturday! I also have one more gym session to fit in tomorrow, I'm so determined to lose 3lbs this week lol.

I have to say tho, I don't half see a difference the day after my fast day, I tend to have low carb & high protein and my stomach seems "flatter" (I by no means have a flat stomach ) the next day. I really should cut out carbs altogether, they don't seem to agree with me.

Just dying to see what happens this week on the scales

Once you've done the first couple of days it should be easier! And like you said, you can just say to yourself you'll have it tomorrow! I used to save things up til the weekend and have a treat then, but I couldn't hack it *blush*
