54 years old. Retired female from Scotland living in Turkey. Gained weight from stopping smoking and being depressed and lost my dog. Got stuck in a rut for ten years. What a waste!

I am following the 5:2 diet for health and weight loss. I 'fast' Mon, Wed and Fri when I don't eat for 24hrs ie from 6pm to 6pm. On 'fast days I just have between 400 - 500 calories. The rest of the time I have under 1200 calories. Saturdays and Sundays are diet free, guilt free days.

I just want to eat a balanced, healthy amount of food and feel good. I have reduced my alcohol intake and now only imbibe at weekends. I am also giving up as many processed foods as I can as they are 'the devil's foods' lol. As an animal lover, I am becoming more and more wary of what meat I eat. The thought of cruelty to animals which we eat really turns me off.

A quick question about Atkins
YvonneD123. Thank you sooo much. You know I have posted four times and nobody answered to give me a clue about this. I also live in a very hot climate. Just to know that it will get better was all I needed to carry on. Cheers Smile

Can anyone tell me how long the lack of energy goes on for? Just an idea of what to expect? I'm thinking of giving up. thanks

Okay. I'm fed up!
I use grammes instead of serving. There is an option to put g on every food (I think)

Phentermine / Duromine : Discuss ???
OMG Phentermine. Did you not see that TV programme about how dangerous that stuff is? I am really shocked. 15 years someone has been using it!!!! I'm going so say this now and I don't care what anyone says. Taking drugs is not a good way to loose weight
