This diet is really achievable. Now at my goal weight 12.5 st i am 1.80m, Started 14.3st Need to decide if i want to lose more, might aim for 12 st and see if it can be done feeling pleased with myself . At my pre diet weight i was definitely looking like a typical over weight middle aged man now feeling much better and younger yeh. I have not done much exercise but it does help to active walk or treadmill for 30 mins


Dont exercise on fast days or can get dizzy

Always do the 2 fast days or you will have to ween of food again ie eventually body gets used to having low cal days but not if u miss those days. You have to go through hunger pains if you skip the days so better to just do it.

Dont go eating mad on non fast days

Hi, I'm doing 5:2 and Coach to 5K. I purposely run first thing in the morning on my fast day as I have eaten well the day before. For me, this works as I wouldn't want to run after fasting. I have spoken to others on the C25k forum and the opinion on this is split. Suggest taking it easy and listening to your body.


Couch not coach!
