I lost three stone (42 pounds/20 kilos) on the 5:2 Diet

and loved it. Totally free to do, which is great as you need to save for your small clothes! I went from a UK size 16 to a size 10 and have been the same weight now since April 2013. I make sure I weigh myself every Saturday morning so I know whether to do 6:1 or 5:2 the following week. There are quite a few Facebook groups if you need others for motivation. I bought an excellent book by Kate Harrison called The 5:2 Diet and you can get that on Kindle too.


Here's the original programme that started it off (and changed my life!) bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b...
