5:2 eating plan


Monday, July 22, 2013

Has anyone tried the 5:2 eating plan, sometimes called the 2 day diet? A lot of my cycling buddies have so we thought that we would give it a go. Keep my calories down and exercising doesn't seem to be working at the mo - as I said I have a doctors appointment as I think that something is going on for me not to be losing weight like I should.
Eating as normal for 5 days and fasting for 2 non consecutive days sounds like my student days. Today is our first 'fast' day. I have 500 lovely calories lined up for the day. I have just had 134 of them with cheerios for breakfast.
A nice salad for lunch is planned with omlette with tomato and onion for tea. I have enough calories left over for a couple of lemon squash ice lollies. Its another hot day and lollies seem the way to go. I have a lot of ice in the freezer and fruit tea cooling ready for the ice later. Hubby suggested a straw and an umbrella for the iced fruit tea. I think he may be taking the rip.

Back to normal healthy eating tomorrow and then fasting again on Thursday.
Looking at my exercise calorie burn and my food, I might need to eat a little more on the other 5 days. I am upping my calorie intake by 150 calories a day. Sounds bonkers but I am wondering if I am not eating enough with these long rides.

Off to work in a min, dog walking in the sunshine.

    I like to fast as well, it made so much sense after reading Brad Pillion's eat stop eat. I am also on a fast today, I do 24 hour fasts, tea time to tea time. During my fast I drink green tea and water. You might also like to check out this web page http://www.leangains.com/2010/06/in
