Has anyone tried the 5:2 diet without telling their dh?

And if you did, did he notice?

I just don't know if he'd approve and it would potentially be less bother to just not tell him!

Yes I'm doing it now and haven't him. I'm
Waiting for him to notice . I've lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks but he hasn't said anything yet .

Thanks bish

Does he not notice that you hardly eat anything some days?

Nope .. He works long hours and I don't always eat regularly . On fast days I don't eat in the day and eat with him at night . Pretty easy really .

He noticed weight loss But not what I was eating.
I didn't want to make a fuss about a new diet so I just got on with it. I don't eat meat, and he does so me having different meals is not that unusual.

He will eventually notice. Mine did after two weeks (my missing 5kg) and immediately began doing it with me, he was so impressed by how simple it was. Over a year later we have lost a combined 50kg and are happily maintaining on 5:2, sometimes 16:8.

My dh is slim and tall so I am always trying to feed him. So no way we could do it together .. I don't look any thinner yet so maybe he will notice soon .

Me, but I get away with it as I go to a course on a Monday night straight from work so its easy for me to stick to 500 cals that day. I only do a mini fast the other day though (the on reason being so he wont notice TBH). I just CBA with the hassle of telling him. Another Fad, undereating etc etc etc according to him.

I wish I hadn't told him, as he's now telling everyone else.
