I've been doing 5:2 for a few weeks now and doing well on it, but it makes me tired and horrid to my children. My husband is away next week, so I thought I would have a bit of a break and do 16:8 instead. Do I eat normally but less often or restrictcalories in for 16 hours but not for 8? And how many calories do I restrict to?
Thanks Kato. I will try to do 1000-1200 then and give it a shot next week - Mon, Weds, Fri ideally. Then eat normally on the days in between. I tend to walk on those days, but not get a lot of proper exercise other than the inevitable chasing kiddos and carrying laundry up and down stairs which I seem to do interminably.
