5-2 diet thanks for your video links

Hi i just joined this the other day im 52 and weigh 79kg. I have decided to try the 5-2 diet because of others posts i was reading and video clips links i watched. I had my first day yesterday of my hunger day it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be, i have never done anything like this before but think its possibly for me. it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be i wasn't hungry all the time it kinda comes in waves and i drank plenty water when i did feel hungry so think that helped any other tips for me please.

  • Well done Caroldody!

    Kate Harrison's book "The 5:2 Diet" is a must-read, and there are Facebook groups you can join to support you, either 5:2 or Intermittent Fasting. Get yourself the MyFitnessPal app. Eat sensibly on your non-fasting days. Only weigh yourself once a week, post-wee and pre-tea, after your second fast of the week. Measure yourself now and take your 'Before' photos to compare with your wonderful 'After' ones! And keep us posted with your progress!
