    Aye that cereal bar is the green light for your body to start it's craving.

    I love it tbh as I eat 2 1000kcal meals a day and then that's me done.

    I dunno how I would cope eat 600kcal in a day on 5:2 :smiley-laughing002:

    Nah mate running is pretty much finished for me me now, ankle is in too bad nick waiting on getting to the physios. Went hill sprinting laat week for the first time in ages, could hardly walk the next day foot was in agony. Don't get much time for the gym so just do ton of press ups, dips, got a pull up bar in the house and x2 40+lbs of dumbells in the house I do some arm and shoulder work with, and my personal favourite is using them for a bit of shadow boxing ala rocky balboa style :D

    Those pull up bars are great pieces of kit just for blasting out a few reps every time you pass. :icon_mrgreen:

    Hurt my hand and wrist the other weekend, which has been holding me back. I've come to the conclusion that my hands are just too weak. Does anyone know of any exercises designed specifically for enhancing your strength?

    My brother used to have this Bruce Lee book that went into all the exercises he used to do for his forearms. I will ask him if he can remember which one it was.

    So far so good with my 5:2 diet. Started to eat from 9 till 5 every day so that's me doing the 16/8. I'm going to keep doing that on the fast days as well by just having small snack 9am and 12pm having a mushroom omelette or something for dinner followed by a home made almond milk, blueberry, whey protein smoothie. 500 cals over the day.

    It's going well. Weigh in day Monday and I think I'm down 2 Ibs since monday 1st June :celt_2:

    I'm praying my weight stays the same tomorrow as if it does I was 10st 0.8 on Monday and according to the scale this morning I'm 9st 11.0 Ibs :celt_2: I could feel it falling off over the week. Mind you I've been on the exercise bike for 25 mins every night and hula hooping for 10 mins. Three nights of the week I was doing beginners kettle bells to a video on you tube.

    I ate 500 cals Monday and Wednesday and for the rest of the week I was allowed up to 1650...that will be reduced tomorrow to slightly compensate for the weight loss. I followed a 16/8 routine not eating after 5pm until 9am with an 8 hour window for eating normally. I only found it difficult in the morning as I was dying for a cuppa from 7 until 9! I can't take tea without semi skim milk and I didn't want to * up my fast :rolleyes:


    3.2Ib loss since Monday is amazing :celt_2:

    It's a psychological thing isn't it :celt_2: once you see yourself under a 13 stone it's like hey ho here we go. I loved seeing that 9 in front again :celt_2: I set a goal for 9st 3 Ibs but I think I would really like to be 8 and half. I figure I should make my goals smaller and maybe I will get there.

    That's the problem with diets Joe you lose it and go back to bad habits. 5:2 is different as it's like resetting your thinking and the way your body takes in food. You can get used to a routine that's flexible and live with it. I have my 500 days on Mon and Wednesday but In reality I can make it any two days of the week I want if I'm going somewhere that I know I will eat more than usual.

    According to the folk on the 5:2 forum it's not really about exercise when we try to lose weight. It's great for toning and they recommend weight training as opposed to cardio as they say building muscles is much more effective. It's also their theory that you can lose weight even if you're a couch potato as long as you stay within the TDEE and the 500/600 cals two days a week. The talk is that it really is down to what you eat, how and when you eat.
