My sister does the two and five diet. You eat for five days and fast for two but she spreads the days. So her two no eat days are Mon and Thurs. The rest of the days she eats. She has lost alot of weight. I hadn't seen her for a few months and was surprised when I did. She combines this also with a walk four days a week. On her no eat days she can drink water, coffee and tea and if it is particularly difficult she may have a bit of fruit or a carrot and celery stick.

Was doing pretty well, and lost about 15 lbs, until the virus junk hit last March, and knocked me off it.

Probably gained about 10 of it back. Going to try again soon. I'm eating waaaay too much sugar and carbs now.
oh it is tough when you fall off the wagon, really shows how addictive the carbs are. Hope you get back on track and well done for your success, even if you have lost some of it, at least you know you can do it and can get back to it again :)

No question about it, even if you don't diet in some way, the intermittent fasting absolutely works.

Keto works well.

I have a rare body mass index where my height to wieght ratio doesn't conform to traditional fat percentage models. In other words, for my height and weight I fall into the overweight category but it fails to calculate for lean muscle mass which weighs more than pure fat. In reality I wasn't overweight.

I still wanted to drop a few useless pounds and I simply stopped eating breads, pastas, and drinking sodas. I resumed my regular life and my metabolism took care of the rest.

Key is to just be committed. Results might not be instant. Just stick with the plan

ug, I never realized how much bread and pasta I consumed untill I started trying to cut them out.

@PennEd any updates?



I know I can simply search online for this ( I have and it gets so overwhelming, that's why I'm asking here)
Does anyone have any "keto friendly" (yet still yummy enough to feed the whole clan) recipes to share?

I use Keto and caloric deficits to lose weight. I got up to 235lbs in September of 2020 because our commander gave strict orders about being in public spaces so I wasn't really able to go to the gym and exercise the way I would have liked. Previously I usually sat around 205lbs. I started Keto in September and kept track of my weight by date. Currently I am sitting at 195lbs when I wake up in the morning (best time to weigh yourself) and not budging much for the past few weeks so I probably will have to cut calories again if I want to move down more. I try to create a diet that uses around 1500-1800 calories to lose weight. Considering I reached 199.6lbs on the 14th of January totaling 35 lbs of weight loss at that point I think it worked out.

The above is an example of what a meal might look like. One of the mistakes people make with Keto, and at times people means me, is that they rely too much on protein and end up having a low carb low fat high protein diet which is not what you want to do because it will not create the desired results.

I will be 97 in May, when it is SO hard to lose weight. I just had 50 plus pounds simply disappear without dieting when I decided to eliminate all white carbs from my diet to control diabetes.

The diet is really simply eating the Lord's way: If God created it and no man changed it, it is fine to eat. Men get such a kick out of taking grains apart. They take anything of the grain that is nutritious away and feed it to our cattle leaving a starchy paste like white flour, white pasta, white rice, degermed cornmeal. If you refuse to eat any of this, but eat as God created food, the excess pounds will melt away and you will feel wonderful. If you can afford it, watch that all meat, eggs, and milk is treated as God created them to be treated and not "improved" by man.

Why food costs more if it isn't subjected to any manufacturing is astonishing. The extra cost can be saved by becoming so healthy you don't need expensive medication.
