    Wow! Congrats.
    So what are you doing specifically?
    What kind of stuff do you eat in your off days?

    I like the sound of this. Thinking I will give it a shot.
    What do people typically eat on their calorie restricted days?

    You asked for it
    on a " fasting day" which is 500 calories (I use calorie king to work it out)
    I typically have an egg with either milk in an egg flip if it's hot or cooked with some veggies (spinach/mushrooms etc) for breakfast.
    Lunch is small 95g tuna can with salad.
    Dinner is protein (chicken/fish/small steak usually) with salad or cooked veggies depending on the weather.
    During the day I will drink around 3 litres of water and have some herbal tea. You could have tea or coffee I just don't drink them.
    i know some people eat nothing during the day and save it all for dinner but I get starving. I did notice one time I ran out of eggs I had peanut butter on toast for breakfast and I was hungry all day, whereas when I have an egg I'm usually fine.

    On a normal day I will basically just eat normally (which lately has been a fair bit of crap I must admit). Still losing weight so not complaining. My whole (adult) family is doing this.
    Hope this helps.

    I'm doing it too. I skip breakfast, have two boiled eggs for lunch and then a protein and veg style dinner. Tonight was prawn stirfry - I had a few noodles and even an icypole for dessert. I drink buckets of green tea (I do everyday).

    Evenings are tough as that's when I'm hungry and tempted by chocolate etc.

    Down another 2kg to a total of 8kg down. Amazing that this includes the usual Christmas face stuffing!

    Probably a silly question, but are the two fasting days meant to be consecutive days or spaced out in the week? Thanks and congrats on the weight loss so far !

    They are supposed to be spaced out by at least a day. I think if you have them consecutively then your body might go into starvation mode. I always do Mondays and then usually Wednesday. Gets it over and done with!
