I'm Anna, always been naturally slim, but with age weight has crept on, now 2 stone overweight. I feel uncomfortable, bloated, my clothes don't fit anymore. Tried various diets but been unsuccessful.
So, decided to give this one a go after hearing good reports!

Hi @Anna789 and welcome.

All the best with the start of this new way of eating. I don't see 5:2 as a diet in the normal sense, but more a way of changing the way you eat which can lead to many health benefits as well as shedding a few pounds.

For lots of useful info read up on all the great information in the Learn section of this site, and if you haven't seen it - have a look at Michael Mosely's documentary "Eat Fast and Live Longer" - available on line (try This is the program that kick started the 5:2 way of life.

Lots of people here to help you, so feel free to post questions and updates, and tell us a bit more about yourself.
