Fortunately, I'm a bit odd as I like all sorts of whacky food, including tofu. So two boiled eggs and a ryvita for a late lunch is fine. As is plain tofu with soya sauce and broccoli for a late dinner. (I'm vegetarian)
My husband goes out on Monday nights, so there is only one night when we have to plan to eat separately, which is no big deal. He is very supportive of my plan but doesn't really understand why I'm doing it.
I thought I would really struggle as I have never dieted in my life but I'm actually amazed at how easy it has been so far.
I do get a headache sometimes, but I'm reading that that is quite common. I'm also fortunate that I have no medical problems, except the onset of osteoporosis, consistent with my age.
I don't know exactly when I found the 5:2 fasting way, but it must have been during the summer and at once I know "this is it"! I have never felt drawn to diets like GI, LHCF, Weight watchers or such, mostly due to the fact that the kids need normal food and I don't have it in me to cook two different kinds of dishes every day, one is more than enough. And to take out potatoes, rice etc from my own diet has never been my thing.
So I started and lost 2kg, but then got stuck. Well I realize that my minor cheating has put a nail in my spanner.....or more like this urge to eat something even though it isn't absolutely not necessary....even if it has been veggies or a cup of café latte....
Before A.S. (Autumn Sabotage) began I could quite easily save treats until the weekend or just have a small amount of biccie/cake/flapjack. This situation is no more and I need to do something, as this plateau I've been on since July has now turned into a gradual gain and I'm not having it. So this is it. This is where I will be logging what I eat. I may also log exercise as at the moment I'm not doing any other than weekend alotmenting, but that's not enough.
Saturday 22nd November 2014 - GOAL - to skip lunch, eat as late as possible and just have fruit until teatime. Normal tea followed...
Water and fruit and spice teas have also helped and I can easily do this 2 days a week, it seems I made the right choice in deciding to follow this plan, fingers crossed it stays that way......
