I have not been on here for a long time - since I crocked my Achilles tendon last March. My problem is that the running was so very very good to help me lose weight and control my BS (T2 diabetic)
I was gradually losing weight and my appetite was controlled. Since being on the couch (injury bench) I am struggling to find a way to exercise efficiently. I decided to try the 5:2 way of eating because my son and daughter-in-law had both lost lots on it. I am finding it very slow going. My energy levels are at rock bottom too. (I used to be one of those people with boundless energy). If left to my own devices I don't wake up until 11.00 +. I do sleep all night.
I keep seeing the blurb about LCHF but I'm hesitating because fats have high calorific values, although the blogs suggest it works.
Can anybody tell me their experience of this way of eating, and does it work?
Many thanks in anticipation of your help.
