That's the beauty of 5:2. Can't do it today? Ok I'll do it tomorrow.
I enjoy my fast days.
That sounds very unpleasant, @saj. How are you splitting your food intake on a fast day? Do you have several small meals or do you save all the calories for one meal, or not consume anything at all?saj wrote: Every now and then I fail a fast day because I feel so hungry I can't function - not to mention the acid that builds up in my stomach....Water is no help to fend off hunger.
Do you drink broth/thin soup on your fast days when you feel hungry? Sometimes, having a vegetable broth (even just the liquid, without the vegetables) can normalise someone's electrolytes/salt levels and make them feel better with surprising rapidity. And I wonder if you might find that the soup reduces the sensation of the acid stomach.

Just recently I find it hard to fast at all.
Me too @coffeetime, me too. I feel so hungry on fast days. Will power low. But I do feel this past year has been, for me, about maintenance rather than more loss. I'm 2 stone lighter than I've been for years. Hope we can both find our way soon. Keep us posted if you do!
I chose other because
1. I have been fasting and given up due to sickness that day
2. I follow the scool terms for fasting. Allowing myself a break for the school holidays. I don't go overboard with
eating at these times and still do 1 or 2 days of 500 calories. I consider this reward/reflection time and then look forward
to the school term and fasting on Mondays and Thursdays. It seems to give me some empowerment at not having to
do the same old lunches each day. I really enjoy how I am going. Weight not coming off via scales but showing in clothing and people who haven't seen me for a while are saying I am virtually "glowing" from hair to toes!
