Which comes first @Maryannthe chicken or the soft boiled egg?!! :wink:
I like to share a high protein source and no fat/low calory source. Not sure whether the German name of it rings a bell, though. We have a cheese that is called "Harzer" cheese. It is made from what is called "sour milk" if I translate it. It comes in a package with four rolls, each 50 gram. So 200 gram have 250 kcal. I combine it with veggies and have an evening meal with high protein content: of 60 gram. Curd/quark has 60 gram protein in 500 gram. So you can imagine the power in that cheese.

Maybe this is available elsewhere, too (under another name I guess). It's my little protein miracle that I am very thankful for.

For me the major benefit of 5:2 over all other diets is that fact that it can be done in the most easy manner. For a fast day that means: anything that would be on the menu on a non-fast day, but in a very small portion :shock:
@Mahalo,

How interesting. I had never seen hartzer cheese before, but just looked it up on Wikipedia. It does sound like an excellent diet choice. I'd love to try it.
I've only done 4 fast days but I start with some green tea in the morning (with about 1/2 TSP of raw honey). I eat half of a Quest protein bar for lunch and eat the other half between lunch and dinner. Then for dinner I've been having 2 scrambled eggs with salt and pepper. I'm left with 50 calories so I usually eat a Light mini Babybel cheese. It's surprising how filling the protein bars are. I'm actually quite satisfied with just the half for a few hours.
