I tried 5:2 before & quite liked it but struggled a bit with feeling hungry & faint so gave up....

Starting in earnest today.
Had a cup of tea & no breakfast.

Feeling really pleased with myself

& then I forgot and ate a biscuit!!!!! biscuit sad angry
It was dd's fault... She didn't want it & attacked me with it!!!

So, is that it? Have I ruined my first attempt??
Or can I just ignore the biscuit & pretend it never happened???

I started off by having a small bowl of porridge (made with water) on fast days, then a light soup at lunchtime. Then I substituted the soup for a clear broth (think hot and sour soup with mushrooms) and then gave up both breakfast and lunch on fast days - I didn't jump straight to absolutely no food until supper immediately.

Oh that sounds good mistle!
It might be a better idea to have a very light breakfast & lunch.
Thank you

Pretend it never happened.
Let DD finish the biscuits and then buy no more - let her have fruit or milk for snacks and then you will both benefit
and enjoy the NFD that follows
