Trying the 5:2 way of eating for six weeks to see if it will work for me. Started on Monday (always a Monday!) and successfully fasted without it being too dreadful. I had three eggs, scrambled at 3pm and a cup of tea with a splash of milk after work at 1030pm.
My Thursday fast was identical, but was more of a challenge as everyone at work was offering me chocolates. Need to work on having excuses at the ready to refuse food!
On non fast days my TDEE is 1900, but I have naturally been coming in at 1700-1800 without depriving myself.
Let's see what Mondays weigh in brings.
