There. I have said it.
I have just checked my bmi, i knew i was putting on a lot of weight but this is a new low. Im not happy with how i look, i gave up smoking 2 years ago which is wonderful but now i feel unfit and unhealthy which is not what i wanted.

I have my first holiday abroard in 18 years coming up next year and i dont want to he an unhealthy lump whilst by the pool or exploring.
I did the 5:2 diet but didnt have much success and am thinking about doing a 16:8 intermittent diet, i am an emotional eater who also eats when bored and work shifts although food is readily available.

Any tips, dh helpfully tells me to 'just stop eating'.
I want to have a certain amount of control which the 16:8 appeals as well as not having to constantly think about food

Theres a section specifically for intermittent fasting, you may be better moving your thread there.
