The 5:2 fasting in the Michael Mosley sense is not intended for weight loss, but for a more healthy living.
But of course, you can easily use it to gain some weight loss advantages too. I do this on a regular basis, and it works great.
I would suggest that you go with two days of 600 calories (4-500 if you're female), and simply go with your regular RDI on the other days. You will feel AWESOME - the "fasting days" will do that for you - and it will help speed up weight loss.
Initially, doing days of 600 (or less) calories can be quite a challenge. However, it gets a LOT easier as you get your grip on this.
Today, I have scheduled less than 200 calories for the entire day. No biggie.

- Master Yoda.I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
