Hello, I have just started the 8-week Blood sugar diet and wondered if anyone else on here is doing it and wanted to join my thread for support/encouragement/chat?

I do not have any blood sugar issues as far as I am aware, but I need to find a way to change my habits around food for good or I suspect I will do in the future. I have been doing 5:2 for several weeks, and find it doable and sustainable, but what I need is to kick the crazy fat/carb/sugar binging habit I have. Even though the 5:2 has been working in terms of weight loss (fairly slowly but consistently 1-2lbs a week), it is not properly helping me to shift my bad habits/negative mentality around food, because I tend to use the fasting as an excuse to then binge on the other days. Not a healthy attitude! So I decided to do this diet for eight weeks to reprogram my food habits and then after the eight weeks, return to 5:2. Then I intend to do two fast days as before but the rest of the week eat normally and, most importantly, healthily (i.e. don’t binge/eat crap on the non fast days).

So if anyone else on here is in a similar situation, I'd love to hear from you. I find weight loss so much easier if there are other people in the same situation to talk to.

I'm giving it a go. I'm a total emotional eating binger.

Having lost several stone a few years ago through something similar I have put it all back on and now have am morbidly obese so need to sort it out.

Great Diamogs - if you've done it before, you know you can do it! I am terrible for yo-yoing myself and I need to get a grip and make lasting changes. I have two stone to lose and then I need to maintain PROPERLY this time instead of putting it all back on and having to diet again!

I have a period mid-morning and mid-afternoon where I am really hungry but so far staving it off with herbal tea. Apparently once you can stick it out for 2 weeks, it gets way easier and the cravings disappear so I am determined to stick it out!

... but you've posted in the Bootcamp topic! You'll get more interest if you post in weight loss chat, I think. (I don't think there's a blood sugar topic yet)
