Yes, it definitely works. Really you are following 5:2 for health benefits, but you lose approx 1-2 lbs per week. Just have to be careful how much you eat on the feast days,BUT you can eat and drink anything unlike other regimes. Good Luck!

I've been following it for 3 weeks now & also loving it. I've only lost 1 1/2 lbs, but thrilled with that as I'd been slowly gaining beforehand (I am close to goal though). The fast days have gone smoothly -- I keep busy & like the freedom from thinking about what/how much to eat. And while I don't go crazy on the other days, I do like being able to eat more than I had been & not having to count every calorie. Good luck & let us know how it goes for you!

courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Yes it works but you have to stick at it.
I have been on a 4/3 Fast program since April and have lost 19 lb, however i have also restricted my calorie intake on the none-fast days to 1200 calories. I would have probably lost the weight quicker if had not had some 20 days away on holiday during that time.

The overall rule for 5:2 is the same as with everything else. Consume fewer calories than you burn. The 5:2 for some just make it all more accomplishable.

If you simply count calories, then you can always eat anything you like. You just have to fit it into your food diary.

Doing the 5:2 can make the "feast" days more enjoyable - but be careful. It's NOT a free-for-all, and if you have a problem with overeating to begin with, then it can easily get you in trouble.

If you can control it, then it's a great tool.

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.
