I am confused. Looking at the week by week weight loss graph for all forum users (in Progress Tracker), it appears that between month 3 and month 6, mean loss is much closer to 1/2 pound than to 1 pound, yet this thread continues to claim average loss of 1 lb. Please explain.
I should point out that I am quite happy with the 5:2 WOE. Over the last 6 months I've averaged a fairly steady 2/3 lb per week loss, and expect to be transitioning to 6:1 by about November. So I'm really just griping about the claims not appearing to mirror the actual results...
5633 forum members are tracking their weight loss progress, 3530 of whom have lost a total of 14899.14kg over a combined total of 33005 weeks and 6 days (mean average 9 weeks 2 days).This is a mean average of 0.448kg lost per member per week
However, as time goes on the weight loss slows, inevitably.
My daughter and I have been doing the 5/2 plan since July 4 and have both averaged 1 lb a week. Some weeks there will be a slight gain (<1 lb to a couple of pounds, oddly) and the next week loss of 1 or 2 lbs. So we've tracked our weight over the weeks and found we've averaged the 1lb a week. I'm happy with that!
Thanks for the info! I am new on the program and new in the forun.
I love to search and read in this forum.
By second week my stomach is tamed and doesnt growl at lunch time.I am having lots of water green tea and coconut water during the 12 hours between breakfast and dinner..Hopefully i shall greet the new year 12 pounds lighter.Feeling good and confident and in control.All my fellow IF-ers..hang in there it only gets better.Suchi.
This is our very first week and while the wife keeps hers a secret I am delighted to say that we had no problem at all and will adopt 5:2 as our life style
We are both retired and I am about to buy a Thermomix so making soups will be a doddle and as well we will be steaming most foods instead of frying.
We have in mind to have soup on two days of the week - chicken and veg on two days of the week fish and veg on one day and beef/lamb and veg on one day of the week.
Did not dream that just having toast and Coffey for breakfast - 1.5 cups of chicken vegetable soup for lunch and dinner could be so sustaining.
Just one week plus a 30 minute walk on three days so far my weight is down from 104k to 102k and my gut is down from 130cm to 123cm and I am delighted.
We have purchased a wii and will use that for exercise as well as at 74 one tends to slow down a little.
Thanks for all your hard work but it really cheers us up as we were not sure what the difference might be.
Merry Christmas and regards
