Well done kwala :-) I hope the scales were nice to you this morning.

Another 1.3kg gone for me last Friday, which was something of a surprise. Fasting today & tomorrow again as OH & I have decided we quite like just getting it over with.

Next week will be more of a challenge as he's away a couple of nights and it's half-term.

Yep working well for me again this time around too :-) been about 6 or 7 weeks and over a stone down , being able to be eating "normally" for the 5 days really helps :-)

I keep on trying this, stopping, trying again, stopping.

I'm not massively overweight, so would be doing it half for weight loss and half for supposed health gains. I also sometimes do it for a couple of weeks, just to feel like I'm getting back in touch with the feeling of not always having a semi-full stomach, and learning to appreciate food.

The weather's nice outside though, which is a good time to start again!

I'm failing badly by trying to eat less generally, mainly because I'm a weak willed glutton, so may give this another go, it's only one day at a time....

Well done bigleggy!

After a bit of a hiatus I'm back on consecutive fast days (still supporting hubby really). Still surprised that I can quite happily run on a fast day.

About This Thread

Anyone want to try it with me?

Info - Link (roll over me to see where I go)

5 days of 'normal' eating and 2 days eating 600 calories (men), 500 calories (women).
Fast days are best not done on consecutive days, unless you have amazing willpower.
