Hello all…I’m hoping there is someone who can help!
I was on the 5:2 diet and doing pretty well…that was a few years back. Low mood and self esteem have since seen me heavier than when I started. So i have been again.
However, I am confused. I seem to be doing 16:8 with 5:2 and the blood sugar diet all in one! And I have been for 2 weeks and my weight is barely shifting, although I have seen some change in my figure.
I have read the associated books and articles but I think I have read too much hence the confusion. So my main questions are:
1. Do I stick to the BSD fast where for 8 weeks I eat 800 calories then switch to 5:2?
2. On the switch to 5:2, do I stick to 800 call on my 5 days?
3. Do I ignore the 16:8 rule?
Ps I am getting in some exercise each day.
