Just started this last week, and lost 2 lbs on the new version (up to 800 cals on 2 days a week). I have just about reached my target and looking to create a "buffer" so that I don't have to watch every mouthful for days away/holidays etc.

There is also a 5 week Challenge, which I have joined, starting next Monday for those trialing the 5:2 - why don't you join too! 😀

Yes. Been on 5:2 since January. Lost 7kg so far. I find it quite easy to do. Best thing is not having to deny myself any particular foods - though it's becoming easier to make good food choices.

Hi marymcin,

5:2 is The Fast Diet by Dr Michael Mosely.

Essentially, two days a week you fast - fast days (FDs). This means eating a maximum of 500 calories (for women, 600 for men).

The other 5 days (non-fast days [NFDs]) you eat whatever you want - but stay under your daily allowance. The average for women is 2,000. I set mine at 1,800.

If you exercise a bit you can add a few more calories to that or just lose more weight.

I find it really easy. I fast Monday and Tuesday. I eat cereal and milk in the morning then have veges and canned fish for dinner. I then break my fast with a nice lunch on Wednesday with my friend.

Expect to gain some weight in the beginning until your replacement medication is adjusted. Also, once you have no thyroid, you will find you need some form of T3 to replace what you can no longer make. ...
