Occasionally I pop slightly over but a quick 16:8 and I'm straight back on track.
Part of me would still like to fast, I enjoyed that feeling of control, but the reality is that fasting would take me below where I know I should be, so that's no longer control. Control is knowing what is right, and what is right for me is sensible eating (that 5:2 has taught me) and the occasional 16:8 when I've had a blow-out
When I had my surgery in December last year I swithced to 16.8 missing breakfast even though I was convalescing. And it worked well for me. If I'm away in a hotel I will eat breakfast but skip lunch.
Just preveiwed this post and it came up with my Christmas Club info for last year!! One year on, back to fasting but no weight loss to aim for - love it
I suspect I was too intense, logging everything I ate every day, weighing daily, exercise logged etc. Takes up a lot of time.
Now I do Monday and Wednesday as fast days, only log calories to make sure I don't exceed the 500 on those days only otherwise no calorie counting.... easy.
I still love all that originally made fasting attractive for me. It's the only weight loosing plan that I have ever managed to start up again after dropping out. I still have a long way to go but will get there eventually. Though for me personally stress and fasting does not work.
