I have been on the 5:2 for just under 6 weeks, and am half a stone down and loving it so far.
I’m a student midwife and whilst when at uni it has been really easy to follow, I am starting placement in a couple of weeks.
Really don’t want to fall off the wagon but wondering how any other shift workers handled it? The thought of only eating 500 cals on a 12 hour night shift is scaring me a wee bit!

Hello, I am nurse in the USA & I work 12 hour night shifts & they usually turn into 14 hours. I am not doing the fast on those days. However, I normally do not eat at work & consume less than 1000 cals on my shift days so this will hopefully enhance my weight loss. I worked a half shift(turned into 9 hours), my first fast day & got a tremendous headache. I also have no time to drink H2O @ work which leads to numerous bathroom breaks!
