I am type-2 diabetic, and am starting a 5+2 BSD diet. My issue is that I travel a lot for work, 1 to 2 weeks each month. While not traveling, I assume all will be ok. While travelling I don’t know what I should do. I don’t see an easy way to follow a 600 calories diet as I am eating dinner at restaurants. However, it is not only how to obtain low calorie food. When away I go for dinner with colleagues. This has not only the purpose of eating, but is important networking. I am a researcher in academia and we always talk about work.
Question: how effective will 5+2 be, if I only do it when eating at home, on average 2.5 weeks each month?
Can I scale, i.e. will it take 60% longer until I reach my goals? Or will it be worse?
Any tips how to do a 5+2 diet while travelling would be appreciated.
