    Does anyone use my fitness pal?
    I found breaking up my macronutrients really kick started my weight loss. My diet consists of 25% carbohydrates, 45% fats and 30% protein.

    I log everything on My Fitness pal & it's linked to my Fitbit have found since adding friends to it that can see what I am eating has made me more accountable

    It's funny you say that as I suspected pre 5:2 I might have insulin resistance!
    Now it's no bother. No more hangry

    Default February Weight Loss Challenge

    Hi, can I join?
    My eating habits have gotten out of control. I'm still 12 kg up from pre preg weight, 13 months later

    I'm wanting to lose at least 10 before falling pregnant again, hopefully in two months time. So for feb I'm aiming to lose 5 kg.

    I'm going to send all the junk food to work with hubby tomorrow and do some serious meal prep, so that I have healthy, easy options available to me, instead of being short of time and grabbing something unhealthy.

    What are everyone's favourite sites for meals? Mostly lunch- that's the time of day I struggle with.
    I'm a member of lose baby weight at the moment so need to utilise that more.
    I know it's all in my head and I'm the only one with the power to tell myself 'no' but it's proving to be a huge challenge. I had lost all my baby weight by this stage after my first, so I didn't expect it to be so much harder the second time around.

    Any tips and tricks would be SO appreciated!

    I'd love to join in. I started the lose baby weight 28 day challenge today. I had really good success with it last year. We're currently TTC so my main goal is to lose a few kgs and improve my overall health and having a meal plan set out for is what works best. Also aiming for 3-4 gym classes a week.

    I tried eeking out my cals over the day but I was unsatisfied and hungrier. And you'd have to go to bed hungry too. I just drink a tonne of water and herbal tea to get through the day.
    I used to get "hangry" pre 5:2 but haven't experienced it since doing it.

    I break up my fast days as much as possible, it makes it easier to get through the day knowing you can eat what you like the next day. But I have done a copy of "back to backs" due to social engagements.

    When you start doing it you are more conscious of what you eat on the other days. I'd say as generally on the other 5 days of the week 3 days I eat really carefully and 2 days is looser to have a few treats. While technically you can eat what you want, I don't think I would have seen such good results if I'd gone to the extreme on the non fast days. I generally try to keep to my TDEE on non fast days.
    I'm happy to answer any questions you have. There is a good FB support group if you are interested I'll give you the details.
    What's TDEE?
    I tried 5:2 and it just didn't work for me- It just didn't work with my lifestyle, I hated having to turn down lunch dates etc just because it was a fast day. I need more flexibility!
