I have been doing 5:2 since February 6, 2017 and wanted to share my experience to date.
I am a 57 year old male and am on synthroid for Hashimotos disease. When I started, my weight was 230 lbs and my blood pressure was 145/95. I was relatively inactive due to some nagging injuries. Also, I was becoming sensitive to sugar/carbs in that a dish of ice cream could leave me with a nasty hangover if I ate it after 7:00 pm the night before.
Today, my weight is 219 lbs, my blood pressure is 125/75 without medication, and my activity level is up significantly. Besides the improved numbers, my appetite has changed quite a bit – I really don’t crave sugary foods now but look forward to my fasts. I really enjoy how good food tastes the morning after completing a fast!
My wife and several friends are giving this a go as well – it’s working for each of them to varying degrees.
Good luck to everyone else embarking on this approach to eating!

Yes, but harder to measure accurately, waist size also better measure than BMI https://t.co/g2Jz2fY1BR
