Introduce Yourself!

Our Frequently Asked Questions topic will answer many of your fasting & weight loss questions!

If you're new and have a question or need some advice, please give us as much information as you can about your situation in order for us to be able to help you as best we can. For example, it's helpful to know your BMI/weight, how much you want to lose, any medical conditions which might affect your weight and (if you've started fasting already) how you do your fasts in terms of splitting up your calories, what you eat etc. Thanks!

Back and want a buddy!
21 Feb 2019, 19:08
Hi all,
I had really good success with 5:2 several years ago and I need to get back to it. When I was last here I found a buddy with a similar amount to lose and we would email each other support. It doesn't need to be in the same part of the world...I am in Seattle but my former buddy was in the UK (we lost touch and I think we both fell off the wagon). I'm 44 years old, I am 5'8" and have about 40 pounds to lose. Yikes. It used to be less but so it goes. Please let me know if you'd be interested )

Thank you!

I have also tried and done it successfully. You have to try it one more time.
