  • Hi I’m now into my 4th week of 5:2 I haven’t been consistent on which days I fast but always do two days a week non consecutive. I don’t eat but do have a couple of milky coffees a day (no sugar or syrup) and if really hungry before bed will have a boiled egg or a couple if oatcakes. I’m finding the fasting fine and generally I have a healthy diet – occasional cake or biscuit but mostly vegetarian home cooked food and nothing too processed.

    I am enjoying the extra focus in my work and definitely feel more energy but the weight loss is confusing. last week I had lost just over 1kg which although not as much as I would like I was happy with – I’m aiming to lose 3-4kg and then maintain it. however at the start of this week I was back to my starting weight which was really frustrating. I’m keeping going with this as the other benefits are worth it, but cant figure out why my weight has gone back up. Any thoughts?

    thanks everyone

    The key thing is what are you eating on Slow Days? ‘nothing too processed’ ‘occasional cake’ Have you calculated your TDEE [click RESOuRCES at top of page] I find that when I eat white rice, I gain weight. Maybe there is some food like that for you. BTW, 1 kg in a week is excellent! You don’t want to lose more than that/week or your skin won’t catch up.
    Maybe this helped….
