  • Hi all,

    My wife and I recently found the 5:2 diet and have now started. I’ve known of fasting and intermittent fasting for a while but it seemed to hard.

    Since Monday we’ve been doing the following:

    – Between Sunday 8:30pm and Friday 10am we fast from 8:30pm to 10am daily.
    – On Tuesday and Wednesday, between 10am and 8:30pm we consume only 500/600 calories.
    – From Friday 10am to Sunday 8:30pm there are no restrictions.

    I’ve based this on studies and information I’ve read about the benefits of regular intermittent fasting and eating in a small window. The idea is to allow us to enjoy our usual family breakfasts and other entertaining on the weekends. Midweek it doesn’t effect us much to fast.

    Thanks everyone!


    Sounds like a plan, redcliffe. The proof of the pudding is in the tasting. Let us all know how well it works for you. good luck.
