  • Hi Sue and welcome:

    That’s right – any two days at 500 or less and the other five at TDEE or less – you don’t have to eat all the way up to your TDEE if you don’t want to. If you haven’t see it already, here are some more tips: https://thefastdiet.co.uk/forums/topic/the-basics-for-newbies-your-questions-answered/

    Good Luck!

    I’ve been at it for 3 weeks now. After the first week, lost 8 pounds! Next week, gained back one. This past week, lost one. I’m gathering from the posts I’ve seen here that this is normal. So, I will keep plugging along.
    Compared to Weight Watchers, which I have used successfully in the past (thought I always regained everything once I went off it), I am liking that 1) This is FREE and 2) I don’t have to enter everything I eat into an app.
    Going to try to focus less on the scale and more on how my clothes feel.
    Also, I am getting full so much faster now, which I love. I used to be able to polish off two tamales like it was nothing. Last night ate one, started on the second one and had to stop cuz my stomach was hurting!

    Thank you simcoeluv – this thread has been really useful. I’m a newcomer, and it’s good to have an idea of what to expect. Thanks.

    Hi Marinermum and welcome:

    You are welcome!

    Good Luck!

    Thank you! I have tried the fast diet before and gave up because I didn’t seem to be losing weight and obviously didn’t stick with it for long enough, I’ve decided to give it another go.

    When is it best to weight in . I am a newby today is my 3rd fast. I weighed in after my last fast and i was down 2 pounds when i weigh in after my nonfasting day im up 1 pound. Is this normal ?

    Hi Helen and welcome:

    If you read the Warnings post you will see that it is not unusual to gain or lose 2 or more pounds a day. These weight losses or gains are mainly caused by water retention or dehydration and food in transit weight gain or loss. Most people lose weight after their diet day because they take in less water and food on the diet day. The day after, they eat (food in transit weight) and usually have greater water intake because of the water in the food and other liquids they drink.

    Because of these variations, many people weigh weekly or monthly. It is possible to do everything right and even gain or not lose with weekly weigh-ins, but you have only hit a ‘plateau’ if you have not lost weight for a month or more. Obviously, if you are gaining weight after 4 weekly weigh-ins or a monthly one, you are eating too much. If they don’t bother you, you can weigh daily and just look for the trend down, understanding that your weight will vary quite a bit every day.

    Good Luck!

    Hi Guys
    I have been fasting now for over 5 years yes 5 years. I fast every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and to be honest I absolutely love it and would not change back to a ‘normal’ eating pattern again.

    I was the same as everyone else in the beginning not losing weight and getting really down about it. I have now lost over 4 1/2 stone. I didn’t lose it all at once and there were times when I didn’t lose any for months.

    Last September, it had again been months since not losing any weight, I took another look at what I was doing. My fast days were fine, approximately 350 to 400 calories, my eating were ok, but changed from having meat to more fish and I completely changed my exercise regime. I have todate lost 1 1/2 stone, I am in size 10 clothes, never before being this small before and feel absolutely great.

    Sorry this post is so long, I’ve don’t normally post on forums but wanted to share my experience with you guys after reading about your experiences starting out.

    Please keep going, its not a diet is a way of life and its not just about losing weight, there are so many other health benefits.

    Doing any Fasting in today’s world is something to be proud of so be proud and stick with it.

    Thanks simcoeluv for this encouraging topic!
    Week 3 and I’ve not lost anything, despite doing ADF, so was feeling pretty fed up! But this has helped and I will carry on as not finding it too hard so far- I’ve found eating just one meal on FDs works best for me. Hopefully next week will show a bit of a loss, but I do feel much better for doing this, and find on my non-FD’s I get full quickly, so that’s great at least!
