  • The 5:2 Diet – who’s with me? | Milomade
    always been happy with my weight but after going upto 13stone during pregnancy and even though I lost a lot after my son was born I ve never got back to the normal me mostly due to my reluctant attitude to excercise and also the fact that I do over eat a lot of the time With the 5 2 Diet you don t stop eating entirely on the fasting days you simply reduce your calorie intake on those days for women it s 500 calories and for men it 600 basically a quarter of your recommended calorie intake If you stick to this plan then you should lose around 1lb 0 46kg a week if you are a woman slightly more for a man Success also depends on not over eating on your normal days You should not only lose weight but also enjoy a wide range of health benefits Studies of intermittent fasting show that not only do people see improvements in blood pressure and their cholesterol levels but also in their insulin sensitivity As one of the medical experts I interviewed put it There is nothing else you can do to your body that is as powerful as fasting I wasn t sure if I d have the willpower on my fasting days but planned to do the calorie restriction on the days I was in the studio Mondays and Fridays i e without my son around and all that tempting toddler tasty tit bits I always feel compelled to consume so as not to waste food So I weighed myself recently for the fist time in ages and found I was 11stone My goal weight is around 9stone so as I read the book I did start thinking about the amount of food I consumed everyday I don t know the calorific value of anything as I ve never counted calories before and I started seeing food in a totally new light What I thought of as low calorie foods turned out to be quite high in calories my homemade Friday night pizzas for instance who d have thought that 500g of Strong Bread Flour would amount to just under 2000 calories 500g makes 4 pizzas but just the base without any topping would be near to my 500 calorie limit for the day so I decided to switch my second fasting day to Wednesday my weekly commute into Edinburgh for web work where I spend all day in an office on my own coding I was intruiged to find out if anyone else was following the diet and wrote about it on Instagram two weeks ago and instantly got some great feedback from other people who were either doing the diet or had done it and how it had worked for them Anyone else doing the 5 2 I m reading the book at the moment and keen to give it a go fastdiet A photo posted by Evie Milo milomade co uk on Apr
