    I really have to do some fast days, since I've moved house a month ago I've gained about 2kg.

    Definitely jump on board, it's always easier when you can share the experience and have the support of others.

    Who has a fast day tomorrow? I'm thinking I will do mon, wed, & fri this week as I'm going away over the weekend and am likely to binge. I want to offset the damage I will do.

    I'm on today as well. Once again I forgot what day it was yesterday! Love how flexible this is though!

    Hi ladies, mind if I join in. I've been reading along and now been following the 5:2 diet for 2 weeks now and my weigh has gone up!!
    I started at 59.1 and this morning I'm over 60kgs. I'm really strict on fast days, I don't really calculate calories on feast days but don't generally go overboard.

    Can anyone think of why the scales would be going up?? I know I don't have much to lose but I didn't expect to gain weight

    Please help

    1. It could be fluid retention for that time of the month?
    2. Bottom line calories in+colories out (exercise) = weight gain/loss. If you are putting on weight look at what you are eating on your binge days and look at how active you have been (with restricting calories to 500 on certain days you will be lucky to have enough energy to f@rt let alone exercise effectively).
    3. Also restricting your calories so drastically is going to fu@k with your metabolism (your body goes into starvation mode, reserving fat stores, making it more difficult to lose weight) etc.

    Sorry ladies I think this is an unhealthy fad that isn't sustainable.

    Have you read any research on it vic park?
    Body doesn't go into starvation mode after such a small fast.
    I was skeptical as well until I started looking into it.

    I find this an adaptable way of life and easy to follow. Much easier restricting calories on only two days a week than restricting them every day.
