I just bought a fitbit last Friday. I like it but am not 'in love' with it like most people say. I kind of think I wasted my money to be perfectly honest 🙊 But I'm probably not using all the functions etc
Second fasting day in a row here. Yesterday was actually really easy (easiest fasting day since I started) and today hasn't been difficult at all, considering it's day #2! I've had a coffee for breakfast and literally just finished lunch - a banana. Hoping for a good loss tomorrow!
My book arrived yesterday (The Fast Diet), only read a few pages but it's pretty interesting. Glad I got it!
I have read up on this diet and have attempted it. They say that you need to fast for 2 days of the week eating only 500 calories for women and 600 calories for men. In Australia food labels use kilojoules so its approx 2000kj for women and about 2500kj for men. Its recommended to split the 2 days and not have them consecutive. I've also read that its for a 24 hour period, so it might be easier to go from 2pm to 2pm fasting rather than one full day. We certainly don't need to consume as much as we do, so I'm all for this diet. Plus its cheap!!!!!!!! No need to buy expensive products or foods. Go for it, all the best.
Say you finish dinner at 7 pm Monday night, fast until 7 am for breakfast, fast until 7pm for dinner, then fast until 7am the next day for breakfast, then resume normal eating!
I tend to not eat lunch or breakfast and just power through until dinner time. Today I was starving at lunch though, so had some cold rolls.
Having an Asian chicken and veg soup tonight. Smells good.
We have been slack recently and steadily putting on weight.
We are getting serious again and getting back into it.
Fasting today, Saturday and Monday. Probs Wednesday too.
Looking forward to some weight loss again.
Fast day tomorrow. First weigh in will be Saturday morning, after 15 days with 5 fasts. I can see a difference. Feeling good!
Grrr I've had a 700g gain!?!?!?!
I thought I'd had a good week
No loss of cm's either.
Feeling a bit deflated.
Might try 3 fast days next week to see if that helps.
Need to try something!!!
Good luck to all those fasting today
@RenovatorMum your gain could come down to something as simple as hormonal fluctuations or water retention due to the much warmer weather.
I tend to gain during that awful AF week. Probably CMs as well as I'm so bloated.
Hopefully next week it all drops off for you!
I'm doing my second fast day today so I've got the weekend free.

I gained while AF was here and then lost again the next week. There are so many variables! I think it's better to many focus on a period of a few weeks and see if you have a general trend of losing rather than gaining. That's also more likely to be sustained I would think.
Struggling through my fast day. I think the hot weather makes it harder. I'm drinking a heap of water but I just feel clagged from the humidity and am looking for a pick-me-up😁
Anyway I've stayed strong. Will have a light dinner soon then I'm done fasting until Tuesday. Weigh in tomorrow! 👍
