Also, I was surprised at how well it worked. I had had success with diets in the past, but not so much around the time I tried 5:2 (or 4:3 in my case). All my old tricks stopped working. So it was a pleasant surprise that I had a fairly steady downward trajectory.
And I had no idea that it's okay to be hungry, that I could go five hours without eating and wouldn't pass out, and that when you're actually hungry, even the healthiest food tastes great. Now I say "if I'm not hungry enough to eat an apple or carrots, I'm not actually hungry."
I haven't dieted much in my life - and that no doubt helped this time - but that was partly because I could never stick with anything that required me just to "cut down a bit" or not eat certain foods.
So when I read about 5:2, I thought this was something I could do and I did. (So maybe it wasn't a surprise!!)
