    This is what I struggle to work out bluebirds.
    I think the weight loss benefit is due to decreased caloric intake.
    Other benefits, such as improved cholesterol levels and insulin control are what matters more, with stricter fasting times.

    I may be wrong though!

    moongazer I read a study about this, one group on calorie control everyday and another group on alternate fasting.

    Both groups had similar results in term of weight loss. They didn't measure other changes though!

    Makes sense thought. Stricter fasting gives the body more recovery time. Lower calorie intake either way would equal weight loss.
    I couldn't fast during the day while looking after 2 boys!

    Hehe I've stupidly started this on the school holidays and have all five of mine at home 🙈

    My first fasting day wasn't too bad, I found it most difficult from 4pm until bedtime but I think it's because I ran out of things to do and was super bored. Keeping busy is the key!

    I was planning on waiting until Monday to do my second fast but changed my mind when I woke up and I'm doing a second day of fasting. Can already feel this is going to be tougher than yesterday - but mainly because my kids are a bit stir crazy and are climbing the walls. Ugh.

    Have decided Fridays will be my weigh-in days and will fast either Monday/Thursday or Wednesday/Thursday. Will see how two days in a row feels and then make a decision.

    How is everyone else going? Anyone else done two consecutive days?

    I really thought it was not recommended to do two consecutive days? I thought I read that the days have to be separate to get the best results. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    The book says it makes no difference. If two consecutive days work for you, go for it

    I think I will most likely split it next week and do Monday/Thursday.

    Why didnt you eat after 4pm? Did you consume all your calories prior to then?

    Oh I did eat after 4pm! I had soup for dinner and then a diet mousse a bit later on, but it was obviously not as filling as something I would normally eat - for example normally I would eat sour dough bread with my soup.

    I definitely didn't feel like I was starving or anything, it's just that by the end of he day I noticed the hunger more than I had at the start (mostly due to boredom I think)
