Can you do or does anyone do 16:8 fasting for 7 days and the for 2 days also do the fasting that is prescribed in the 5:2?
Why not? Continue to have the food be of high quality on all days: lean protein, carbs from fruits and vegetables.

Works well for me during weight loss and now maintaining. I’m not able to exercise for health reasons. I have dinner only on FDs and lunch and dinner on nonFDs.

Yes, always, right from the start. Not many people need three meals a day.

A big yes! My OH got me onto 16:8. He is type one diabetic and found his sugars were more stable with this regime. I rarely eat breakfast. My first meal, brunch, will be around 12 or 1pm and my evening meal is around 7pm. I have just about reached maintenance and will continue with this and two fast days a week. Good luck
