    You'd be fine with that. It isn't meant to be totally restrictive.

    Sorry ladies I think this is an unhealthy fad that isn't sustainable.
    It's 2 days a week FFS. We still do eat on those days. If you look into "starvation mode" you may find that that is a load of cr@p. I think you should really do some research before bagging something you haven't tried. If it's not for you then fine but you don't have to bring everybody down with your negativity.

    1. They're not called binge days - because that's far from what we do during non-fasting days. On the contrary, I'm more likely to want to eat better because of the good work from the day before - since starting 5:2 I've successfully eaten between 1200-1600 calories on non-fasting days and have completely cut all the crap from my diet.

    2. On fasting days we can have up to 500 calories and rather than starving I feel amazing and have tonnes of energy. I may get a little hungry mid-afternoon but it's nothing dramatic. Most people can manage three small meals a day with 500 calories, it's hardly 'starving yourself'.

    3. Sorry, but we didn't ask for your opinion

    ETA: I actually feel 5:2 is a lot more sustainable long-term than the Michelle Bridges 12wbt I signed up to last year or Weight Watchers which I joined a few years ago and it suits my lifestyle perfectly.

    Will Intermittent Fasting Slow Down My Metabolism?


    There are false claims out there saying that, fasting or even skipping a meal can slow down your metabolism, and will even advice you to eat several small meals a day. If you eat normally when you are not fasting, your body will not need any adjustments during the fasting periods, thus your metabolism will remain at its fat burning peak.


    There is a difference between dieting and intermittent fasting. Dieting involves going for long periods of time without food, or depriving our bodies enough nutrients. Unfortunately, going for long periods without food can significantly reduce your metabolism. This is called the starvation response or the starvation mode; because our bodies adapt to the amount of energy we burn and the calories that we eat.


    Thus, in as little of three days of a calorie controlled diet, your metabolism will adjust and even stop burning fat, significantly slowing down the fat burning process. This does not happen with intermittent fasting. This is because the less frequent eating in intermittent fasting does not decrease ones metabolism unless you have continually fasted for many days. In fact, fasting for less than two to three days can have the opposite effect of increasing your metabolism.

    **There's also the benefits of the body 'recovering' on fast days, reducing the risk of certain diet related diseases.

    I don't binge on junk during feast days, I eat a very healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, muesli, nuts, seeds, whole grains and natural yoghurt.

    Hi girls I am going to join you! I've been reading along and today is my 2nd fast day. I fasted on Tuesday and didn't find it too bad.
    I've got about 15kg to lose but my first goal is 7kg.
    I've been doing exercise 3-4 times a week along with strength training so I hope I'm on right track.
    My main problem is finding suitable recipes for meals on my fast days. I've got a veggie spiral thingo and it's great but I struggle in how to serve it. So boring on it's own!

    Hi! I'm on a fasting day today too - fingers crossed it's a good one for both of us

    I found a great website the other day for 5:2 meals, I'll see if I can find the link and send it to you later.

    Yes, fast days are boring at times!
    I usually have an omelette (1 fried egg, nothing else) with a tiny bit of dill, 6 fried grape tomatoes (with salt) and lettuce salad with a dash of balsamic vinegar.
    I use a dash of olive oil in the frying (I've counted those calories)

    I make DH a yummy cauliflower bake with bacon and cheese for his fast day lunch. 350 kcal a portion.

    At night he usually has a soup and a yoghurt.
