5:2 going well and I'm getting into the swing on fast days, but I'm finding that I really don't fancy food on non-fast days. On fast days I really want a jacket potato, pasta or toast. So the following day I prepare it, take a couple of mouthfuls and just don't want it. The family are away for the weekend so I could have what I want today. I've just stood, surveying the contents of the fridge, freezer and cupboard as I'm hungry, but don't want anything that is in there. Is this right?
I know exactly what you mean. Yesterday on my non fast day I made a bacon sandwich for breakfast, ate half of it and left the rest as I just didn't have any interest in it. I've never done that in my life!
wow, never tried a double fast. I did a fast yesterday and could hardly finish a bowl of chopped up fruit earlier. I had coffee with my mum and she had a big scone with jam and cream and I had a healthy bowl of fruit with a bit of greek yoghurt on top. I don't think she believed me that I couldn't finish it! so now that I am here,the day after a fast, I can believe you, but I don't think I could get through the actual fast day itself without the knowledge that tomorrow was a normal day.
Oh ?! Am new to all this (started at new year) and was keeping under 500cals Mon Wed Fri - wondered if that was wrong ?!! Put on quite a bit in the last few months due to ankles injury ( both !) ! Still not resolved so can't exercise much !! Was down to 163 after first 10 days I had the same non interest in food - then out of nowhere it changed and I was craving cheese and cereal and bread and Chocolate !! Am up to 168 today :-( Guess I need to start again !!
