However I've lost steadily for four months at about 1kg a month, which is new. On other diets I've had weeks without losing, even though not cheating. I'm happy with that, as it's 10-12kg a year and this is a very bearable way of losing weight. Also I feel good on 5:2, as if my body really enjoys having two fast days.
I think with some people the diet takes longer to kick in. Stand firm against your body!!!
>>This is a really interesting thread... It was suggested that I look at this tread because I have an under active thyroid (100mcg levothyroxine) and have not yet lost any weight 4 weeks in - anyone else notice slow weight loss compared to other fasters?[/quote]
