    The reason I did consecutive fasting days is because DH is FIFO. It is so much easier to fast when he's not home, so next week will be Tues and Wed.

    That's the beauty of it you can change it to suit your lifestyle. I might find 2 days straight a bit hard I think.

    My SIL swears by it. Yes she has lost a lot of weight on it and seems to be keeping it off.

    However holidays with her was hell. She kept whinging at meal time during her 2 fast days.
    Family meal time is a big thing in France and how we socialize and spent special time together.

    So having her raining on our parades every-time was a bit annoying!

    It sounds like a good plan though and I'd consider doing it.

    I had been doing it but had stopped for 3 months.
    Starting again tomorrow.
    I lost between 1 kg to half kg per week, doing 2 fast days. Easy to speed up the process if you need by doing 3 fasts per week.
    I lost weight and cms mainly around my waist and bum.
    I am an apple so I was chuffed by this.

    Typically I have found it easier to only drink water, teas, diet drinks until dinner time.
    DH comes home and I have a small skinny latte which was about 80 - 100 cals, then for tea we would have soup or a low cal dinner at about 300 cal. I would then have a little to play with to have an apple or a paddle pop/icy pole after tea.
    DH finds it easier to have lunch of baby spinach and veg with tuna and some cal free dressing or a squeeze of lemon juice, then go on to have dinner.
    If I struggle I do this as well.

    Uncool of your SIL.
    We stopped fasting while on holiday.
    Interesting thing was we were away 5 weeks, ate and drank, but put on very little weight while away.

    We found the weight came off slowly, but it certainly came back on more slowly as well.

    Part of it may be that your body gets used to eating less at a time so you naturally don't go crazy afterwards.

    I'm doing my first fasting day tomorrow. Planning to have a coffee for breakfast, tuna salad for lunch, small serve of chicken bake for dinner, sugar free jelly for dessert with Nettle tea inbertween. Sounds easy enough. Wish me luck!
