Has anyone heard of this?
So. This is how it works, watch out, you don't need to read the book.
On two days a week you limit your calorie intake to 500-600 calories. Which is obviously VERY LOW.
The other 5 days you eat fairly normal.
I do understand that apparently eating an entire jar of Nutella is NOT what you should be doing on the other 5 days, I suppose the idea is that you eat balanced on those days within a normal calorie range.
People apparently have lost weight on this. What I found most interesting is the challenge of the "fast" days. Will I be able to do it? I read a little bit about it and it seems in a perfect world you have some breakfast and then nothing til dinner. Damn, there are people who do that daily;-) I don't though. I like my three meals. I am very curious. It should force me to drink more water and tea during the day which is very wise!
Why the hell not try it? I am approaching middle age, right? And I do want to look fabulous in ALL of my clothes I am not looking to loose pounds and pounds, but if I lost a 4-5 pounds, I would be pretty stoked and I think I could do this. I am very consistent with going to the gym, but after loosing all the weight I wanted to loose last year and then following some idiotic person's diet advice that I even paid for, I gained some of it back, not all of it, but some of it. It really put a HUGE damper on the second half of my year, because I never stopped working hard at it and I dragged my arse to the gym all the time.
So today will be day 1 of the two days.
So far I have had nothing as I plan to eat the following:
1: 8:30 my usual breakfast which is a protein shake with skim milk. 150 roughly?
2: 12:30 uuuuhmmm. Just in case I brought a package of Greek yogurt and an apple for lunch. That's probably about 200 if I eat it.
3: 19:30 I have some lovely butternut squash soup at home. One serving is 110 and then maybe a slice of heaven, I meant bread at another 100.
That puts me over 500. Hmmm. Well. Let's not get too picky and let's see what lunch brings.
It's a big challenge for sure!
