Before PMR I was on a journey of lifestyle change that included the 5:2 diet. I actually made it more of a life change as it seemed to have so many positive aspects for me - I felt sharper and more alive on the '2' days (the fasting days of 600 cals) being a big one. In Ms Gilberts excellent book there is a line to cut this away. Would this be hard and fast?
I make a simple call at the moment that the reason for this comment is based on the real need to be a lot kinder to yourself and take it easy on the whole system - maybe the 5:2 is seen as quite harsh and would therefor put the body under a stress that will not help with PMR management overall.
I would welcome any opinions on this. At the moment I am 'off' and will stick with that unless there is a real chance of restarting 5:2 with no increase in risk to PMR outcomes - I am taking a lot of advice from this site and the members, it all seems right to me an just wanted some more opinion on something that was really working for me.
Many thanks and all the best.
