Hi everyone, am now on week 3 with Tuesday and Friday fasting days. Figured this would be easier for me as I have tried counting calories in past but eventually found it all too much of a faff. First 2 weeks were not easy but yesterday passed without any great angst. However, have now discovered that, because of my age and activity level I am only allowed 1602 cals as maintenance. Has any other 'oldie' had to cope with this? So it looks as if I will have to count calories on the 5 non-fast days or perhaps the easier option would be to cut out lunch altogether and just enjoy breakfast and supper. Also I gave up my beloved wine for Dry January but it looks as if suppers will now be wineless! All this to improve my arthritic hip. Hey-ho.
