I posted this on the 5:2 diet thread but it moves quite fast so I want to post it here too if that's ok. I've just copied and pasted it over!
Hi All,

I'm looking for advice here really.
I've been doing the diet for about 3 weeks now, I've been fasting 3 days a week instead of 2 (fasting Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday). I didn't feel the schedule if 4:3 would work for me. It's been going well, BUT I have lost maybe a kilo. That's it. And I've been bouncing around with that kilo so it's not even definitely a loss.
On the days I'm not dieting I try to eat about 1500 calories.
I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I weight 54 kilo, I'm short - 4"11. Small build. I want to lose about 6 kilos. I'm at the top end of my BMI, so healthy but could do with he weight loss.
Please help me! I have dieted before but I am enjoying doing this one and I want it to work for me!

If you're very close to target weight it does tend to slow right down. You could try upping exercise levels?

Thanks Fire!
I'm not particularly active but I'm going to try and make more of an effort. I even have access to a treadmill that I just never use!

No prob same issues myself! smile

Also you may find you don't actually lose much weight, but change shape instead - muscle weighs more and apparently goes on burning fat etc.

Good luck!
