Morning friends and I hope the end of the week has brought you good results. Here are my stats for the week:

TDEE = 1867 Calories eaten: Friday 2238; Sat 1874 Sun 487; Mon 1702
Tues 466; Weds 1787 and Thursday 487. = 9041. Meaning deficit of 4028
Add in 3 walks burning approx 600 calories each = total deficit of 5828.

Total loss for the week, one pound meaning my weight is now 10st 4lbs :grin:

Now I'm going to tell you about Mr LJ, he eats plain porridge made with water and he ads a banana every morning whether Fasting or not. He takes a packed lunch mainly a wholegrain roll, no spread, slices of ham, handful of small tomatoes and a granola type bar and a piece of fruit. He may have the occasional biscuit if offered it with a cup of tea as he goes about his work but not always. He has a job that means he drives a lot of miles and then it can involve a lot of physical work (he is a gas technician),...

Three months on from starting this amazing process I am mentally hugging myself on a daily basis. I have lost 11 kg's and am now the thinnest/lightest I have been for probably over a decade! I am still amazed and astonished and in awe of how my body has responded to this way of fasting.
I didn't think I could do it initially, I was a slave to the belief that going without food for even a few hours was not good. How wrong I was. I love fasting! It makes me feel full of life and energy and I can almost imagine myself repairing on a cellular level lol.
This may sound a bit weird but some mornings when I wake up I have a check in with my body. I feel the differences the change in weight has made. At 56 my skin is beginning to lose it's elasticity. I have been very lucky genetically and am blessed with good skin but the ravages of time are taking their toll which makes me sad. I try to accept it but it's a timely reminder of my mortality and occasionally the reason for some tearful moments....

just ran for 40 minutes and might go out again as it is the most amazingly beautiful night in Sydney. Clear sky and the right temperature for a run. Had flourless orange almond cake today for breakfast - I love this diet :star:

The last 10 days I have had lost focus a little bit.. didn't manage to make my fasting days, a lot of things happened in my life - but really - BAD EXCUSE :curse: ..

So now I am back on track. Today is my fasting day, the first in more than one week, I hope I can keep it all day long, tomorrow I have decided to make a low calorie days as well, like 1000 cals.. Hope it will get me back.. :like:

So I have been playing with "Alternate Day Fasting" or JUDDD as it is often seen around the internet, for a few weeks now. Not super successfully.

Then, 2 days ago,I saw 2 videos that Dr. Mosely did. WOW.

So yesterday was my first day on the 5:2. It went well.

I plan to do my 2 fasts on days that I work. I work T-W-Th-F. Much easier to not think about food when I am at work. And will keep it to under 550 calories. That is 25% of my TDEE.

I also plan to get to 10,000 steps a day, working on my "NEAT". And have started a Tabata type exercise regimen once a week.

So I am excited to start this journey.
