From how 5:2 works and what to eat, to tips on getting through those fast days, read our guide to intermittent fasting.
I'm setting myself a 6 week challenge of ADF.I've done 5:2 before but fell off the wagon so want to jump start back in to it.I have a BMI of 30. Am I likely to drop a bit of weight in this time?
ADF is a tougher, more short-term diet whereas 5:2 is a longterm sustainable WOL. If you can stick to ADF for your 6 weeks, it should theoretically bring quicker weight loss, but you really need to plan your social life around it.If you still find weight loss on ADF is slow, check your NFDs are within 120% TDEEAre planning to revert to 5:2 after the initial 6 weeks ? You can always do so earlier, if you find ADF too difficult.
I do ADF but I did it the opposite way, I started with a BMI of over 40 - 44 actually so I began doing 5:2 and as I got comfortable increased. I have just done the sums and my BMI is now 38.5! Am so chuffed! I do three fasts a week though, I like it because it means I can have a drink and eat pizza sometimes at the weekends!
Thanks for the replies. Yes I intend to move to 5:2 at some point but could do with shifting a few pounds asap!
Well done, Ican That's great progress.
Thank yu! I am losing about 1.4kg a week, which isn't dramatic but is healthy and do-able.
