I’m in North London too. I’m on day one right now. I can’t get food out of my head! Normally I snack and graze through the day, so I’m going up the wall not able to nibble.
I’m 5’3 and am 11 stone. Trying to finally shake off the weight I put on as a student 4 years ago.
How has it gone for you since August? Hope it’s working- would be good motivation for me to stay away from the fridge until dinner time!

hi guys! i live in london canada and this is my second week of alternate day fasting and i am loving it, no problems and I feel like its working! i need to do adf as i binge eat/drink but i think this is what ill do till I reach my goal then do 5:2 to maintain. lookin frwrd to hearing from anyone:)
Not in London, but starting the fast diet here in the states. I’m just finishing up a fast day now, it was hard at times. I feel like I didn’t have my normal happy spirit for my husband and 2 kids today. I’m trying to stay positive, but I think I’ve quit in the past because I don’t want to put myself through the tough beginning. Tell me it gets better!!
Hi Emily and welcome:
The body is quite capable of surviving on 500 calories for a day – the longest documented 0 calorie fast was over 54 weeks. So it really comes down to getting used to eating fewer calories twice a week and understanding that will be no problem.
It gets a lot better – many people report they look forward to their diet days.
Give it a try for a month or two, and you will probably be a life long convert. Here are some tips for those just starting 5:2: http://thefastdiet.co.uk/forums/topic/the-basics-for-newbies-your-questions-answered/

Hi, I’m 18, living in London. I’m looking to loose around 10 kilograms by the end of the summer (to go down to 55kg), and I’m looking for a weight loss buddy to help along the way.
Hi Fiona. So sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner, I didn’t realise I had a message.
I’m Tess. I live in Camden if you like we could help each other?
I’m 5:5 and weigh 11 stone so similar and want to lose 2 stone approximately,
would you like to text and support each other on whats app?
We could even go for the odd run together or walks or have a coffee? I’m a teacher in Camden. What about you?
It would be great/ feel free to text me on 07931 224 185
