I have been doing the 5:2 diet on and off, and because it seems to be working I really want to stick to it.
The only issue that I have is that I do get hypoglycemic if I don’t eat any sugars or carbs, or eat on a regular basis. I do not have diabetes, I just get hypoglycemic sometimes.
Would it be safe to eat a dextro energy if I feel it coming? Would that mess with my fast day?
Thanks for the help in advance!

It is difficult to answer that without knowing how many calories there are in a detox energy.

There are about 12 calories per tablet.
Hi Kizzy. I can’t comment on any other effects, but from the purely 5:2 point that should not make any difference. I am fluid only fasting today, but I permit myself some milk in tea or coffee, and there will be more calories in that milk
Can I ask how you know you are hypoglycaemic rather than hungry?
Good to know, I will try it out and see how it goes! Thanks for your help.
Mainly because I start shaking, get extremely dizzy and eventually faint if I don’t take any sugar within a certain time. I don’t have diabetes (touch wood), but somehow have had this one symptom since I was a teenager.
It sounds like sugar withdrawal and eating a dextrose tablet will eliminate the symptoms but not the cause.
I see from your profile that you have a lot of weight to lose.Maybe you should consider seeing your GP for a health check and a blood test and also think about changing what you eat every day to improve your diet.
You might also consider trying Michael Mosleys blood sugar diet for 8 weeks and then continuing with weight loss by following 5:2
