  • Hello forum,

    I have anticipated trialling 5:2, having tried it some years ago. I used to do it before it became famous, but generally did one complete fast a week and others weren’t too sympathetic to it so I quit.
    I tried two meals a day recently, 500 kcal at breakfast at 6ama and evening meal at 8pm. I felt a little light headed at work and was worried it may negatively affect my “brain” function. But, I think I felt less stressed, I didn’t have the energy to get annoyed (as I usually do). When work was tiresome I thought of dinner and cheered up. Neural effects or psychological! I’m not sure. I think it went well. It would be interesting to hear if others have had a better focus despite feeling light headed.

    Hi there, I’m still very new at this, so I’m not sure if my experience will be helpful but I’m happy to share 🙂
    I do just water/tea fasts so I skip the 500 cal meal on fasting days and I have found that I do feel more focused at work until the 20 hr mark. Then my energy and focus drop quite noticeably and my blood pressure must drop as well because I feel very cold. I heard someone refer to this new focus as energized calm I believe.

    Good luck with 5:2. I wish you lots of success!
