BG2: Why I’m doing the 5:2 diet

Have a listen to this first

And a bit more:


The reason I chose this is because I can keep this up.  When I started I thought the fasting days would be hard, and the first few fasting days I was constantly obsessing about when my next food would be.

Yesterday, I got to about 4pm without having eaten since the evening before, and I didn’t really realise it because I had been otherwise occupied.    I had a small dinner at 6.

I realise you have probably already chosen a method of dieting, and some of you have no problems with changing your food intake for 7 days a week.   In my case, knowing I will have a few normal days makes the fasting days just so easy.

And yes, the weight comes off.

Some people push a little harder using ADF (Alternate Day Fasting), and that causes accelerated weight loss.

If you find yourself wavering on the diet you have chosen, because it never allows you to take a break, then give the 5:2 Fast Diet a look-over.   It has health benefits beyond the weight loss, and in fact, even if you aren’t in need of losing weight, you should have a look at this way of eating if you want to extend your life by years, push dementia and/or Alzheimer’s away, and have a lot more energy growing older.
