I only put vegetables, but I don't eat meat/fish/dairy and the veggie alternatives I do eat were not on there - I generally eat some kind of beans, tofu, tempeh, nuts, seitan, quinoa etc. often as a stir fry or pho type soup with soba noodles/zero noodles. I also often have salad (in summer) or soup (in winter) with some nuts/humous and a chia pudding for dessert.

On 5:2 fast days I don't eat regular meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner etc.), but I snack all the time, like literally all the time, allthough I don't eat until 2 o'clock. When I get hungry before 2, I drink black coffee. Then when I start with the feast I eat a huge amount of egg whites, or cottage cheese with cucumber, a bowl of frozen fruit and when I am still hungry I eat celery. That is how I get it through the day, even though I just started :lol:
Hope this 5:2 is easy to maintain, because I already eat this food every day, even when I wasn't even dieting. :smile:

Welcome @fastfaster

Your fast day foods sound pretty fine - but whatever works for you on your fast days is good. You could consider adding more salad (non starchy) veggies to the mix, for variety and extra nutrition.

How long have you been following 5:2?

Just curious - in what form do you eat the egg whites? And what do you do with your eggs yolks?? Although the yolk I assume has more calories, it also has nutrition.

Good luck and best wishes! :clover: :smile:

Welcome and good luck, fastfaster! when I first started I was having an egg for breakfast and then not eating until dinner. I've gradually drifted more to nibbling all day...

As Sassy1 says, whatever works!
