Hi, I’ve just completed week one of 5:2 diet, and just wondered if you can still lose weight even if you don’t exercise? I’m a busy Mum to two angels and I’m avidly studying a degree full time at home, so pretty much spend a lot of time sitting down. I do try to get the odd walk on the beach but its a snails pace with the children.
Yes. You are already weight-lifting everyday. 😉

Losing weight is 85% what you put in your body (a.k.a. food and stuff) and only 15% exercise! So yes, you will also lose weight on this program.
Exercise is important for toning your body and having more muscle mass will increase your rested metabolism, so it is important – but not vital 🙂
You don’t know how good that is to hear 🙂 and yes Piper, even without studying on odd days the angels knacker me out! Ha ha x
Housework and taking care of kids can be seen as exercise yeah ^^ You can also incorporate small lifestyle changes (just an idea).
– Take the stairs instead of the elevator
– Take the bike instead of the car
– Walk instead of taking the bike
– Carry all the laundry at once instead of in smaller batches
– Grab your kid by one ankle and hold him at arms-length for as long as you can
Okay I’m getting a bit weird (not a mom myself so…) But it’s just to give you an idea. 😉
