I am a retired pharmacist who decided to go back to college for a master’s degree in nutrition. I have had many ups and downs, including a 4 year battle with anorexia in my 50’s, going from a size 16 down to a size 5 within 9 months. I changed my lifestyle, retired from pharmacy, and got a job that I love. I quickly regained the weight that I lost and as a student, I need to find a way to get back in control. Any tips that you may have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Hi Tad and welcome:
Here are some 5:2 tips: https://thefastdiet.co.uk/forums/topic/the-basics-for-newbies-your-questions-answered/
One thing about fasting is I’ve found it has improved my ability to listen to my body. Also I now like a lot of foods I never did before, like dark greens.
My journey into fasting started after I cut my refined sugar consumption to less than 20 grams/day. The impacts on my body were shocking and profound. I started losing body fat and my hunger went way down. At the time I actually increased the calories I was eating because I ended up replacing some sweets with higher calorie nuts and fats. Still I started losing weight.
Over time I learned that what I eat is far more important than how much I ate. I learned that not eating is also just as important as eating too, at least for myself. For me refined sugar is toxic and I have to limit it.
