    It's a loose term.
    Fasting days you restrict calories to 500cal for girls. You eat what you like within those calories, though you get more bang for your buck with veggies/salad, plant based foods.
    Ideally the authors suggest one or two meals through the day.
    An ideal fast is to fast from end of meal the night prior, until breakfast, then fast 12 hours until teatime. In that theory, you get 2 or 3 x 12 hour fasts in over the 36 hour period (if you don't eat breakfast the next day until 7am).
    I tend to fast until dinner time, though some days I have a tuna salad at lunchtime like I did today.

    ETA - I believe the weight loss benefits come from the restricted calories, regardless of what time you eat them. I believe the other benefits are more reliant on stricter fasting.

    OK thanks for that. I think I should try this myself because I fast for Ramadan from sunrise to sunset but the problem is normal eating days to try and be moderate and eat right....that's the problem.

    When I fasted from sunrise to sunset for a month I lost 6kgs and ate what I liked after sunset till I slept around 11pm

    I haven't done this particular diet before, although I did adopt a 'one meal a day' diet for a while. I guess the two have similar principals when it comes to the fasting periods? For me, it has been a great way to maintain my weight - I'm far less likely to binge (my weakness!), and if I do, it is a little more limited.

    Yep. Should be ok for you then. It would be a more moderate weight loss, since you only fast for 2 or 3 days, as opposed to Ramadan, where it is every day for the month.

    Eating in blocks has a name as well, but I forget. It is something like the 20-4 dieting or such, differing numbers adding up to 24 hours.
    The fast diet uk website listed above has a forum and there are plenty of people on there who do different types of fasting. It's an interesting resource.

    The 19-5 diet might be the one you are thinking about, although I wouldn't surprised if there is a 20-4 variation as well.

    I just realised that one of my Facebook friends hadn't been in my feed for a while. Went to her page to check on her, and found out that she has just lost her battle with depression. Obviously not diet related, just thought I'd share here instead of eating my feelings
    Hope that's ok.

    She passed away just over a week ago. The last time I thought she sounded depressed, I messaged her and she did not answer. We don't live in the same state and didn't know each other all that well, but I'm one of many who wishes they could have done more.

    So would you getter better results if you fasted until dinner (500 calories) then if you grazed on 500 calories throughout the day?
