Wow, I'm surprised. I started my own verion of the 5:2 diet on April 11th and this was my first weigh in after two weeks & 5 fast days. It's obviously working. My fast days are Mon & Thurs & I've modified the basic 5:2 program to fit better w what works for me. Instead of spreading my calorie alotment out throughout the day, I like to skip food/any calories for an entire 24 hours (if dinner Sunday ends at 7:30, then I don't eat anything until Monday at 7:30), drinking tea, & hot water with lemon only. Then I have my 400 calories, trying to incorporate as much lean protein as possible. Then nothing more til 5:30 the next morning, giving me 34 hours of the recommended 36 hour fast. The thing I miss most on fast days is my am coffee bc I cannot drink the stuff w/o creamer (and I don't want to waste any of the day's 400 calories in something as nutritionally bankrupt at that!). It's surprisingly easy really. My only side effect is that I tend to get chilled easily on fast days and I don't feel as strong if I do my strength workout. Due to the long term health benefits of fasting, I'm seeing this as a permanent lifestyle change & something I'll continue for the long term. Highly recommend watching Michael Mosley's show on his experience w this diet if you're at all interested... Happy Friday! :)

Foofaloof! I have lost NO weight this week despite working out daily and sticking to my diet pretty darn well. I'll be so stinkin' happy if I hit 145 point anything on Monday at the rate I'm going. Still feeling motivated, so forgive the small rant. The exercise log is pushing me to exercise daily and the food log is helping me tweak my diet in a healthier direction. Goodbye fat-filled sunflower seeds for breakfast...parting was such sweet sorrow! Had to get the dang things outta my office so I wouldn't be tempted by them every day! I'm going to portion the rest of the giant bag I have into 1/2 cup treat bags for my son & I to take to his baseball games. I probably have enough to get us thru the whole season. LOL Gonna be cold and rainy here this weekend and cold all next week. That the Groundhog was smoking something this year when he made his prediction is pretty much the general consensus around here these days. Thinking Spring!!
