Cowart's Common Room
5:2 diet

I am about to start on the 5:2 as I have put on over a stone in the last year and now need to do something about it.

Anyone fancy joining me - whatever diet you on - we can do it in the private part of the site - or even on FB - but the latter would exclude people not on FB Sad

Westerwitch's Avatar I did the Dukan diet a coupe of years ago and was very successful with it - but don't want to go down the protein diet route again. The weight gain has been because of all my baking - so have had to calm that down Sad Or only bake for other people . . .

CalicoKate's Avatar Yep - as I have said on FB I need to loose weight again too - this time it is due to HRT tablets which is a bit boring. So after two weeks of very little I will go on to the 5:2 as I think that will fit in with everyday life.
I'm also growing my hair again and at the moment with my fringe pinned back I look a little like Milly Molly Mandy which I don't mind too much, but I don't like having Billy Bunters waistline!

Cadfael's Avatar I am wheat and dairy intolerant. This might sound awful. But you learn to fill your diet up with all healthy tasty options. I can eat as much as i like and i dont put weight on even tho i am on the menopause. I am sure it is because wheat and dairy are in all the tempting foods,they are hard to digest and also can cause fluid retention in people who have sluggish digestive systems. As we age we dont need as much food and we also find it harder to digest food. The right foods also give you more energy, wich helps you to be more physically active,which shifts the weight..........Hope you dont mind the sermon

KitKatCot's Avatar I'm game, but I'm not on facebook.

Last year my cholesterol was raised for the first time so my doctor gave me 6 month to try to reduce it myself before the dreaded statins were prescribed. So I set about a diet and my cholesterol went back down to below average but I didn't lose an ounce.

Himself however, on the same diet lost a stone. Rolling Eyes

Withy Brook's Avatar WW, please do not try to take off much. You were much too thin last time I saw you!

Salle de Bain's Avatar Yes please...would love to join in with something inspiring. I have gained a stone since embarking on a distance learning course which has me sitting in front of a PC all day....
