So I'm fasting today for the first time. I'm not expecting it to be pleasant envy grin

I've planned to have raspberries for breakfast, homemade soup for lunch and grilled chicken with veg for tea.
I'm also planning to drink lots of water. I'm going to give dc a cooked lunch so that when I'm really hungry I'm not cooking their tea!

Let the fasting commence!

Was it something I said?! Anyway I managed my first fast day yesterday. I lost over one pound. I am keen to hear of other people's weight loss experiences.... how long does it take to lose four pounds? And what do you eat?

It took me 2 weeks to lose 5.5lb. 3.25 lb the first week and 2.25lb the second week.

Okay thanks! I will find the other thread.

Wow Arctic that's an impressive loss!

Do you think PoshPaula? I was disappointed the first week.

Sustainable average to lose each week only about 1 lb on a decent (non-crash) diet, unless water loss eg thro low carbing.

5.5 lbs in two weeks would make a big difference to how you feel and look, I would have thought. And with an amount like that, you have more chance of it staying off in the long term.

If after four weeks you've lost 11 pounds that is nearly a stone so that's got to be fantastic.
