Anyone doing 5:2
Mummydee: I agree with the 1200-1600 range based on my experience. I have personally always gained weight at 2K per day. However, I was recently chastized by someone putting on a cooking class when I responded that 2000 cal a day seemed more as maintenance for a man. She quickly bit my head off and informed me that 2000 cal per day is what she eats to maintain. I will note that she was overweight herself. But, I found it odd how there is so much mixed information out there.

How does this diet look?
Ahh...wait...1200 is maintenance? I guess you could substitute oatmeal with chia seeds for one meal if you pick a 6" rather than the foot long. (Oatmeal is cheap. Runs me about $3 a month.)

How does this diet look?
It sounds like a good plan to me. You might want to try to add a cup of cooked oatmeal with chia seeds if you want the extra protein. Plus it should keep you right around that 1200 calorie per day goal.

Am I eating too little calories?
World Health Organization's recommended daily allowance of Sugar=Carbs=Starch for Men is 38gms per day...for Women it's 25gm

I don't want to contradict you, but I'm a little worried that someone might read this and think that they should limit total carb intake to 38g or 25g per day. I believe WHO recommends these limits for sugar intake. Sugar is a carb. But, carbs are also comprised of fiber. It is recommended as a woman that you consume 25 grams of fiber per day. I get that not everyone is on the same diet plan. For instance, Atkins recommends lower carb intake. Yet vegans/vegetarians take in a much higher amount of carbs. I just wanted to clarify that all carbs are not the enemy.
