Fridays seems a popular day to fast. So far I have used 104 cal for breakfast for 100g of strawberries and 60g greek yoghurt. Lunch was a small pita bread with pizza sauce, grated carrot, baby spinach, tomato and 25g low fat grated cheese for 194 cal. Now what to do for dinner. I'm thinking cauliflower soup for 80 cal and then something a bit later tonight.

I'm fasting today too 😊 Was planning to yesterday but thought it would have been too hard with left over birthday cake in the fridge.
So far today I have had a coffee which was 70 calories and that's it. Getting hungry now though so will make a tuna salad with lettuce, grated carrot, cucumber, tomato and a little fat free French dressing which is 130cals. Then dinner tonight I'm making spag bol for the rest of the family so will just have the sauce (mince, tomatoes, garlic, onion, carrot, zucchini, spinach) and add some peas, corn and a little cheese to it. 260cals. Then sugar free jelly for dessert, 7cals

Well today I had a few wholegrain sakatas with a teeny tiny bit of hommus for lunch/afternoon snack.
For dinner I've made some zoodles ( zucchini noodles with an asian flavoured sauce.. Apparently it's worth 116 cals but I added a carrot as well so that would have added a few cals.
If I get a bit peckish later I will have some fruit and that will be it.
Next fast day is Monday.

The last couple of weeks my weight crept up 1kg, now after fasting yesterday I've lost it. I just have to be careful until next fast day which will be Wednesday.

I know the plan says to eat normally the other five days (up 2000 calories) but I'm planning to try to and stay between 1200-1600. I was successful yesterday and even went out for lunch with DH and DS1 and then we had take away for dinner. I had Nando's paella and a piece of corn which was super filling and only about 400 calories all up.
I'm really worried about putting it all back on during my feast days though. Really have to step up and do some exercise I think!

I think the main reason to eat normally for the rest of the week is because your body might go into 'starvation mode' otherwise and make it harder to lose the weight, if that makes sense

So I blew out my fast day yesterday. Was going so well and had only eaten about 200cals for the day, then 4pm Dp called and asked if we wanted to go out for dinner which he never does so we went. I had a light dinner but then had a few glasses of wine 😳
Weigh in day today and I'm still 300g down for the week so still happy. Haven't done measurements but pretty sure I would have lost some in my stomach as I don't feel so bloated. Next fast days are Monday and Wednesday
