    Hi, well done for starting the 5:2 diet if you can stick with it you will easily reach your target weight and get the added health benefits.

    I can only comment from my own experience but i found that 2 meals a day worked best for me. I learned fast that hunger is a state of mind and as long as i drank plenty of water throughout the day it didn’t really bother me too much.

    One thing i would look at in addition to the 5:2 diet is the glycemic load of the food you eat as this can affect how long it takes for your body to break food into sugar. The faster this process occurs the quicker you become hungry. Personally i avoid bread on a fasting day for this reason and would substitute white rice for wholegrain.

    Don’t be afraid of being hungry distract your self at your usual lunch time, take a walk or something similar.

    It’s my first time on the diet I’m going to start tomorrow, my plan is to eat porridge for breakfast, cuppa soup for lunch and the chicken and veg does that sound OK? Advice would be welcomed.

    Good Luck!
