Although my first post I have been doing 5:2 for the last 5 weeks and looking at this board for advice and help! I think I am getting close to giving up as I have actually put on weight!
I am 5ft and when I started weighed 48 kg I now weigh 49.3kg I know I am already quite small but my 'happy' weight is 47.5kg which is what I want to be for the summer! I haven't lost any inches anywhere either! I do work out a lot and have continued to do so on this diet.
Before starting the diet I was a calorie counter and kept to bout 1100 a day somwtimes eating back exercise calories but not often. With the 5:2 I have been doing 2 days at 500 and then 5 days at 1200-1400.
So can anyone shed any light on this? Is it just not right for me?
Thanks all for any help and advise!
