Like glitterfarts, ive lost roughly 5kgs since April. Its been slow and steady, since im not exercising. We also eat out once a week and we've had a few other special occasion days where i haven't watched what ive eaten for a few days.
Have you ladies read the book or watch the doco?
I'm thinking of giving it a go.
I've always been interested by the health advantages gained with fasting.
Do you plan on keeping this up for life?
I've lost 25kg since October 2015 and can honestly say I can keep this up for life. My weightloss is slow now but I'm on my last 5kg to lose so I'm not surprised it's harder.
Easiest "diet" I've ever been on. Cholesterol has lowered as well.
I can speak highly enough.

Agree with @SpecialK - it's very easy to follow and yields results.
I'm going to start-up now that I'm back at work. It was too hard being home with bub to snack all day on his leftovers.
Doco is worth a watch for sure.
I watched the documentary and was very interested by the health impact more than the weight loss.
I mean, weight loss is a nice kicker!! 😁
Might read the book and start in July 😊
Oh also in the doco they had a group of people eat high calories/fat food on their non fast days and they lost same amount than people eating healthy on those days.
Have you noticed the same thing??
Life is too short for no carbs.
That being said I now rarely eat complex carbs but if I feel like them I will.
I don't look at carbs in fruit/veg.
Since starting 5:2 in Oct, I've got a mainly plant based diet and feel better for it. But if I want a burger and chips or a slice of cake, I'll eat it.
It's really taught me about balance and "everyday food"
@SpecialK in the doco they were eating high fat high carbs! Pretty much whatever they felt like, burger, fries, cakes and still got the weight loss
I was wondering if someone tried it in the thread and had similar results.
I agree with you, I would be miserable with a no carb diet. Carbs are awesome!! lol
