Hi all lost 6 pounds on week 1 but only 1 pound on week 2. Is this normal?
Hi Cath and welcome:
Very normal. The average weight loss on 5:2 is about a pound a week. Initial losses can be much more as you lose water weight. Once the water weight is gone, you ‘revert to the mean’, which means weight loss slows or stops until you get around the one pound a week average. This can take some time (even months). What some think is a plateau – cessation of weight loss – is not really. You will still be losing fat weight but your water weight will be ‘normalizing’, masking the fat weight loss.

Yes, it’s normal. at the beginning you lose water which also reduces the abdominal circumference and the weight falls down, then there is a temporary stop or slower weight loss 🙂

I am 20 years old student who weights 75 kilos. I know its not normal but i am planning to lose more kilo because im losing confidence to myself. At my age, i should be conscious coz im not getting any younger anymore and it’s for my health also. I love to eat pizza, burger, pasta especially fries. Yummm!! I start looking for a solution to my problem. I exercise, I make a diet. I limit myself to the food i love. But upon searching, i read https://www.greenmed.io/blog/what-are-the-medicinal-values-of-cannabis/ that CBD can help my problem. I am not sure about this. Can somebody tell their experience in CBD?
