I started this way of eating in November after years and years of yo-yo dieting, using every diet known to man - usual story lose the weight, gain the weight plus a few more lbs.
So I approached this with the thought of may as well give it a go and faced with hubbies comment of 'what diet are you on this week', I can honestly say I was scetptical but went about my first fast day, as I had done the dreaded VLCD in the past the fast day was quite easy really so that was a bonus to start off with.
Ok fast forward a few months and I LOVE IT! It really works. I have settled into a Monday and Thursday fast, I keep within my 'fitbit' allowance on Tues, Wed and Friday then Saturday and Sunday I do what I like, I can go well over my TDEE on a Saturday or treatday as I like to call it (I literally have anything I desire) although as time goes on, you really do look at what you choose and I now very often don't want to eat them crisps or eat that cake, but of course if I do want then I do. Sunday I enjoy a roast dinner, I don't usually go over my TDEE naturally on a Sunday but I don't fret if I do.
I excercise regularly, run, gym, yoga and always get my 10k plus steps in on my fitbit lol, I wouldn't sleep if i didn't lol.
I have lost 15lbs to date which averages out at just under a 1 lb a week, some weeks more, some weeks nothing, some weeks gain but the overall is that I have lost, so happy days - I will never do anything else now, it is how i live - or as my teenage daughter would say it's how I roll.
