Eating on the Fast Diet


The Fast Diet or the 5:2 Plan is the diet craze currently sweeping the UK. Now I'm not one for diets, in fact I don't actually need to lose weight, but Hubs and I have decided to give it a go for a few weeks before our Easter holiday. Hubs has put on a few pounds since leaving the gym in October and I want to support his efforts to shift this weight.

The main rules are that you eat very restricted calories (500 for women, 600 for men) split between two meals for two non-consecutive days a week. You eat nothing in between these two meals but on the other days you eat normally and can enjoy treats such as wine and desserts.


The health benefits linked to this diet are a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Intermittent fasting has been proven to extend lifespan in animals and when fasting your body switches from fat storing mode to fat burning mode. Also as you fast your body uses its energy to repair itself. For me these health benefits are all good reasons to give intermittent fasting a go. Its not a diet that's going to take over my life and lead to food obsession and an unhealthy relationship with food. This diet is more a way of life and diet obsession can't take over as tomorrow is always a normal eating day. I think cutting back on snacking is sensible because if you snack regularly you're never really hungry at mealtimes. It's good to feel real hunger once in a while. 


Today's fasting menu

Breakfast: 1 poached egg on toast
Dinner: Mexican pizza - passata, red onion, mushrooms, and a few slices of mozzarella on a tortilla, baked in hot oven for ten minutes and served with a little (undressed) side salad.

We haven't bought the book to support this diet but we are using a pull-out section from a magazine to guide us through and give us ideas for recipes. So far, so good - tonight's pizza was delicious and I didn't feel deprived as I had a whole one to myself. I'm generally more of a little and often eater so this way of eating does seem strange to me at the moment.


Just no looking at any food blogs until tomorrow and I can't wait for a biscuit with my morning coffee.

    1. Yes,the idea is to give your digestive system a break so you don't eat for about 10-12 hours in between breakfast and dinner.

    4. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time.

But I couldn't stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son.

  2. Wow that sounds interesting, but really hard to do. I usually don't eat from about 8p.m. (sometimes earlier) till 9:30a.m., so sticking to that fast would mean having breakfast earlier or having dinner later in addition to skipping all meals and snacks in between. I think that wouldn't be easy at all.

    Edit: just researched (very lightly) on the subject and it seems there is not just one opinion on when you should eat.

  4. I'm doing intermittent fasting for Lent...skipping breakfast and having my first meal of the day at 11:00 a.m. and dinner around 6:00 p.m. It's tough because I'm a morning person and am at work by 7:00 a.m., but it's also been good on many levels...including starting to lose weight and noticing fewer digestion problems. Hope it works for you too!

  5. This is very like my normal eating pattern, every 3 days or so I cut out meat and carbs, if I do not I feel heavy and sluggish.On those days I eat fresh fruit and salads. I add yogurt sometimes but usually have a glass of skimmed milk.

  7. I have been doing this too, and like it very much. It's actually not as hard as it seems, and I love waking up the next day knowing it's not a "fast" day.

  8. Been on the Fast Diet for a few weeks and it works. Gets easier to miss breakfast and I'm finding I don't eat breakfast most days. The book gives the science behind the diet, some tips and of course the eating plan. Sounds like you are doing well without the book but your local library may have a copy. Good luck with your "diet".

  26. I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend returns back to me, and today with all due respect I want to thank DR.ONIHA for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until I lost my boyfriend, I required help until I found a great spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for the past 6 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my backbone till the rest of his life with me. DR.ONIHA released him to know how much I loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have shared together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend are living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it was even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to DR.ONIHA for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in any situation you are undergoing, it may be a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.

  32. WHAT A MIRACLE...No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m writing  would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker)whom DR BALBOSA have helped in getting back her ex..she also told me that DR BALBOSA is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person and also like a father to her...My name is Meyers Brown and I am from the USA... My love life was in shambles, I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn't face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again. I was confused and did not know what to do again, so i got in contact with DR BALBOSA. He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me and this time my husband came back with so much love,It was one of the best things I have ever done i am the happiest woman on earth and I am filled with so much joy and happiness because my marriage is saved. we are now very much happy with ourselves. DR BALBOSA is for REAL and for good. He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back in just 48 hours!
