5:2 Diet – Week 1


I know I told you all a couple of weeks ago I was going to go back to doing Slimming World, but it just wasn’t working out for me with work etc.  People in work had said about the BBC show Horizons and how they had covered diets and the right one for you, they had an online quiz at the end.  So I decided to do this and the diet that best suited me was the 5:2.
To do the diet properly I downloaded 2 apps ‘Track My Fast’ and ‘My Fitness Pal’ on the Track My Fast they advise to have up to 600cals per day on the 2 fast days and 2,000 calories on the other 5 days.
Have a look at my week

MY REVIEW OF THE WEEK

Ok so I weighed myself this morning and have lost two pounds! 🙂 Looking back at this week I can see I really need to eat more fruit, veg and dairy.  I will definitely be checking the number of calories before eating things, as there were high calorie things I ate and it really wasn’t worth it!  I will also not binge on a cheat day like I did on Saturday, instead I will have a meal or something as a treat that might make me go over my calories for the day.  This week coming I am changing about my Fast Days, that’s the good thing about this diet, it’s flexible.  I’ve also sorted out all my treats and written the calorie value on them all, so I can still have my treats.

I’ll let you know how next week goes! 🙂
