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!

Hi there,
Started this 5:2 after seeing Horizon programme in August.
I have lost a bit of weight but nothing fabulous and have now gained some over Christmas :roll:
Struggling with it all really and have spent ages working out what my calorie in-take should be for feast days.
I wan to loose about 2 stone but also with a family that has a lot of other health problems I like to think this will help with my increased risks too.
I was fasting for 2 days together but have changed to non-consecutive days now.
Anyway wanted to say Hi and thanks x
