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!
Welcome to the gang and good luck x
that is weird because I remember what I wrote!!!
I maintenance fast on Thursdays. If I do twice a week it'll be Tuesday and Thursday. I know MM in the book recommended Mondays and Thursdays, but I cannot do Mondays. Because we have a social event on Mondays, which includes food. It would be too awkward to say 'no' every Monday.
I have been doing this for years now, and sometimes I do Alternate Days Fasting, or 4:3 or an eating window. But when doing the honest 5:2 it is Tuesday and Thursday for me.
I keep it up for 20hours a day and allow myself a "cheat" day on Saturday. I still won't eat anything in the morning, but will allow myself a longer period of "food consumption" on this day.
So far I have been overwhelmed with the results and I am full of energy without any hassles.
