  • Hi All,

    I started doing alternate day 24 hour fast around 3 weeks back.
    Basically the schedule is on fasting day at around 8 am I just have black coffee and collagen/1tsp MCT oil, some natural plant based multivitamins (one capsule) and the next morning I break my fast.

    I haven’t noticed much weight loss and also on non-fasting days I dont eat any junk food. I generally try to stay within the calorie quota.

    But even after following the above I haven’t lost much weight (around 1kg) and not much in the waist either.

    Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Please provide me some feedback based on your experience. Any guidance in this area would be really appreciated.

    Hi Waverider,

    You need to think about 5:2 as a marathon, not a sprint, and give it a bit longer before you worry it’s not working. I’ve been doing it for almost 7.5 years now and my day-day weight is always fluctuating, going both up and down. The key thing is the long term general trend. After my first 26 weeks, during which I had plateaus and week-week weight gains as well as losses I’d managed to lose 17 kg that it had taken me 10 years to put on.

    I hope it comes good for you. Best of luck.
