I have done well so far with 5:2 but because I have a long way to go, I decided to incorporate the 16/8 as well. I will keep posting with how it goes and strongly recommend to anyone to self experiment.
Already I feel I have a lot more energy and also my doc is giving me a full blood MOT so I'm interested to see what gives.
Best of luck to everyone. ...

It will confuse the ducks as they are used to the whole of the back. The pond area is large with trees and a grassed area as well as their house so they will be fine. I am loving what we are doing with the garden. It is skowly looking less like the farmyard it was!
Wow, phone just...
So, next thing, Debs (trainer) says "Oh I want to see you at spin class in the morning." Piece of cake, I thought. WRONG!!!! I really didn't think I was THIS unfit!! What a wake up call!!
