I'm wanting to lose around 5 stone. I don't find it difficult to maintain my weight - although I only have to look at certain things (Indian meals, chocolate, wine) to find my weight going up. Last spring I lost 23lbs easily and began rambling every other week, but when I couldn't go for a while due to a virus I put two thirds of that back on. Now I want to seriously lose again. I find it easy in the summer, but want to begin now so am making home made soups etc, but I also have meal replacement sachets which I can use. But I would really prefer to use the 5:2 diet and then just eat carefully to maintain the other days. Has anyone lost a lot of weight with only the 5:2 diet and not adding lots of exercise, etc? If so I would love to hear from you please. Sue
