Hi everyone. I'be been lurking on a bunch of threads but wasn't sure where I should post. Your expert help would be much appreciated... I'm desperate to lose weight. I've been battling depression and have gained a whopping 3.5st in less than 2 years. I've been exercising hard for 4 months but my eating is still out of control. I've flirted with 5:2 but am nervous about going back to it as I don't want to reduce my exercise. How do you find working out and fasting? Should it cause any probs? Ps. Which is the best thread for me to join for support. I'm not going to be able to do this on my own! Thanks
To reassure you, many people, myself among them have no problem exercising on fast days. I actually find the day after a fast day more difficult but still perfectly do-able. Just make you you are properly hydrated, lots of extra water as you aren't getting it from food.
Brilliant. Thanks so much. I might come out of lurkerdom on the boards you mentioned! My easiest fast days are Mon and Thurs and they're also my heaviest exercise days. Encouraged to just go for it. Thanks again.
