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?
