I’m struggling with starting the fast at present and over eating a bit which is exacerbating my leakey-gut and general unique gut issues. It’s yuck to say the least!
Anyone else in a similar position with difficulty starting their fast?
I’m needing some encouragement to keep going in this desire to fast.
I have fasted under medical supervision in the past and found it really useful. I really want this to be a regular thing in my life re: fasting from now onwards in a safe and sustainable way.
Anyone willing to give me some encouragement in any format to me?
I am happy to reciprocate in the encouragement format you need with your fast needs at present.
My encouragement is that with 5:2 it is just one day. You can fast for just one day! Think how many of the allowed 800calories you want to consume and when and what, and then go for it.
Then when that one day is over and you are tucking in to your first meal on the following day, you can think about the second fast day, and start planning for it.
All power to you.
