So I’ve now been on this diet for 4 months now.
Weighed myself today and I’ve lost 10 pounds, which I’m very happy about.
I’ve seen some diets where people would hope to lose stones and stones over 4 months, but I’m satisfied with this rate – mainly because I feel gradual weight loss is far more sustainable.
What’s more, and what I think is sometimes overlooked about this diet, is that even if you go a few weeks without losing anything, you don’t gain any weight!
The idea that 5 days a week I can enjoy my favourite foods, eat butter and olive oil, drink beer, and still not gain any weight is fantastic.
Plus, I genuinely feel there are a host of other health benefits happening under the surface. I’m usually the first to catch a cold if someone around me has it, and this year I’ve been permanently surrounded by poorly people, yet I’m still yet to catch anything.
So, four months in and I’m thinking I can easily keep this up.

Congratulations! Ten pounds in four months…keep it up (and it sounds like you will) and that’ll translate into 30 pounds a year! There’s a lot to be said for slowly & surely. Plus, I read your other post re the hair issue and it seems like the way you’re doing it is ideal for that concern as well. Perhaps the folks who have suffered troubling hair loss are those who have driven their bodies into more aggressive fasts. Good luck!

Good job, Yorkshireman. You have the right idea. There are certainly lots of benefits to Fasting.
Today is our Fast: we had egg-avocado-crab-cottage cheese baked in a dish for breakfast. Really fast and easy. Tonight we’ll have a variation on ‘mixed sushi’ with brown rice, grilled beef, smoked salmon, egg, and cucumber. Total calories <600.
