Great site. Starting my first fast tomorrow, nervous but also looking forward to it. Feeling really uncomfortable in my body at the moment and life is too short for that! Have just signed up for a sponsored 50 mile bike ride round Bath and Somerset to motivate me in to action. Look forward to chatting to like minded 5:2 ers.
I wouldn't say I'm finding it easy yet however, it's still a struggle on fast days. I'm hoping that it will indeed get easier once I master a couple of daily meal plans that give the optimum energy to fullness ratio.
As an aside I have discovered that porridge made with water is horrible, and that I didn't in all honesty realise that water had a taste until now. I will have to rethink my other foods on porridge days and add something to it to help. Perhaps a chunked apple, some cinammon? Or miiiiiiilk haha.
I have found - to my surprise - that non-fast days aren't filled with me gorging on all the things I daydream about on fast days! Who knew? ...
the weight loss seems to drop unexpectedly in one week, so I would love to understand what is happening in my body. is there fluid retention and then it goes off?
Till only walking every day for 45 mins at fast rate. Not the sort of person to exercise in a prescriptive way, so no point doing gym or swimming. tried this all through my life even when I was slim. just not me or my body.
