Hello. Yes i,d heard about this article and i,ve just read it, thankyou. It certainly makes sense!


I agree about breakfast not being necessary. I've found, as many others have also, that if I eat breakfast I'm more hungry during the day. I tend to break my fast around 2pm, 5pm on two days a week.


The advice on Excercise also seems to be interesting as it suggests that muscle build up burns more calories long term . After starting my 5:2 diet last year I also changed my excercise routine so that I only do cardio during warm up. This includes short intense bursts of 30 seconds with 15 second break for two minutes to increase my heart rate. I then focus mainly on weights to improve muscle tone.

It is difficult to work out right balance between cardio and muscle toning excercises.....


I don't exercise, apart from lots of walking. I hope to be back to running soon.
