Hi everyone, apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I’ve been on the Fast 800 since April. Managed to shed approx 60 pounds- very happy with that and want to continue to lose another 3 stone.
My issue is this.. I get the whole metabolic switch thing but how is it that the scales are so mean when you have a day off the plan? The last week I have stuck religiously to the 800 also fasting mostly 16 hours daily. I had one day when I had some naughty bits ( Ok, fish and chips and crumble and custard !!) and the previous week’s good work has been completely eradicated !
I’d lost 4 pounds and then one day off and 3 of those has gone back on :-/ It was a special celebration and I enjoyed it but this Monday morning feels HARD to get my Fast 800 mojo back… Anyone else find this ?? I want to be able tot have the occasional day off ( goodness knows we need a treat atm) but it’s disheartening when a whole week’s efforts are derailed but just one day of mild naughtiness.
I was wondering whether I should switch to the 5:2, but I really like the fast results of the 800.
Any tips please ?
