It’s coming towards the end of the second week since I started the 5:2 “fastdiet” plan. So far I seem to be coping fine. Two observations: it’s important to get enough rest the night before a fast day, and generally it’s more likely to feel hunger at night. Naturally it’s best to avoid talk about or see food (e.g. cooking programs on TV, bread for next morning’s breakfast, etc.) during these times… However, I do note that here is a good incentive not to miss breakfast – which I tend to do – especially the morning after a fast day. 😉
Finally a self-note: to explore different recipes apart from salads for dinner from now on!
