Sometimes I have thought ahead and have made a breakfast in a jar the night before- oats, yoghurt, milk, berries, bit of honey and parrot seed. The new wonder seed apparently is chia. A high source...
Also has anyone taken a fortnight/month off and started again with 5:2 and found that a) They didn't gain any weight & b) It triggered off further losses? I have lost 2st. 10lbs. Any ideas, Thanks
I've just clocked up nine weeks on 5:2 and shed another kilo and 3 cm off my waist this past week. The Progress Tracker tells me that if I keep going like I have been, in ten weeks I will be at my goal weight, so I'm just about half way there! When I started back in March I had no idea that this would work so well for me. I will be eternally grateful to my friend Michele *waves*who told me about 5:2; I have never lost weight so effortlessly and without feeling in any way deprived or having to give up eating things I love.
This past week I tried my first liquids-only fast. I had been thinking about doing it for a while and since I've had just the one fast day meal in the evenings from the very beginning, I thought it wouldn't be too hard to stretch the fast into the next morning, and it wasn't. I had no trouble getting through the day...
I lost a pound last week - the first one in a whole month so I have probably undone all of the good work, so it's a good test for fasting as a WOE to see what happens when I next weigh in.
I have decided not to do the daily weigh in stuff any more. It dictates my mood for the day which is a complete waste of energy, and I was getting frustrated. I'm just going to go back to weekly (Saturday). Granted, I'm a bit scared to jump on the scales this morning and I'm sure that has something to do with it, but honestly, I'm none the wiser.
I last fasted on Thursday and did a 40 hour bulletproof coffee only fast as I did not eat again until Friday lunchtime. On the Friday morning, I had gained a bit on the scales, which is why I had only...
I'm in the office by 7.30am in the morning and rarely out by 7.30pm at night. I need to remember to go out and walk and if I get totally distracted, I head to the kitchen and the distractions are in front of me and by 2pm in the afternoon, even if I don't feel hungry, I'm certainly tired. A few options:
Stay out of the kitchen completely which means avoiding tea and coffee and just drinking water all day.
Remember to go out and get something. However the cafe across the road is mostly sandwiches, and soup. However they do a small bowl of chilli which is nice, but then I'm not sure what to eat at night. Tonight it has been a salad and chocolate. Not a good combo.
Bring in my own food.
