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!

Week 2
07 Feb 2018, 05:55
Hi everyone,

So I'm in the evening of my 2nd day in my 2nd week. Yesterday was hard, I felt hungry all day so today I kept myself as distracted as possible and it seemed to help. I didn't eat until 6pm apart from half an apple this morning. Tummy's rumbling now so I'm going to bed soon. I weighed myself this morning and have lost 1 and a half pounds. Seems like a tiny amount but it's encouraging. I didn't weigh my portions last week and but have been this week and the portions are definitely smaller than I'd been guessing last week and as a result all my weight loss has been in the last 48 hours. So my advice is put everything you eat on a kitchen scales! Thanks for listening, C in LA :cool:

Are you fasting 2 days in a row? If so, that's very hard to do. You might want to consider spreading the days out!
