    My days are Monday and Thursday :-)

    I've just decided to go for it and my first fast day will be tomorrow. I'm hoping to do two in a row, but will see how I feel.

    My weigh in days will be Mondays - fingers crossed for some results!
    All welcome. Happy fasting!! Keep us posted on how you go and any meal ideas you come across for fasting days.

    My hubby has been doing this diet for a few months now with fantastic results with him being vegetarian the rest of the family take the opportunity to have a meat based dinner on his fast days - win win for all of us when I stop breastfeeding I'll be giving it a go too good luck everyone

    Hi guys. I'll join too, I have been doing a bit if research over the last week and hubby and I are both keen to start. We've started by cooking some low cal meals to try but haven't actually started with the fast days yet. We both do have around 10kgs to lose, but are really keen on the health benefits long term. I'm still struggling with the concept of not getting too hungry but most of all because I'm totally addicted to skinny lattes and can't go without one when I first wake up, so I've already consumed 25% of my daily allowance on a fast day!!!

    Love love love to hear what everyone eats on their fast days - maybe this thread can be a little library of sample 'fast day meal plans'!

    Good luck guys!

    As you know from the other thread, I'm on board! Can even see a few benefits just after the first week! I'm 3.3kgs down and my stomach is slightly less bloated... yay!
    Fast days are a bit of a struggle but I'm hoping with time they become much easier.

    Omg! That's an amazing weight loss over such a relatively short period of time. I hope I can achieve similar results.

    This thread is an inspiration and I'm looking forward to getting back on 5:2 without going it alone!
