Do the 5:2 Fasting Diet

Edited by Leomar Umpad, Eng

I would like to thank Tracy Kiss for the awesome video on 5:2 Fasting Diet. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. Hi, my name is Tracy Kiss. I'm 26 and I am a mother of two children. I have been a vegetarian since I was 5 years old - that's 21 years now. I basically want to try the 5:2 Diet as a way to lose 40 pounds.

Steps

  1. 1
    I'm really greedy with my food as you can see
    .
    Here is a diary of everything I ate for 30 whole days. Throughout the 30 days, you pause twice a week to culture your daily intake of calories. On the days when you don't fast, which is 5 days in a week, you can eat whatever that you want. As you can see I had takeaways; I had birthday parties; I had cake, ice cream, pizzas, and spring rolls in a cheap shop - everything and anything.

    Then you break up your week with 2 days of fasting which meant for that I had around 500 calories a day
    .
    There's a lovely pudding spread up probably with ice cream.

    Here's my fasting day here
    .
    I drink lots of water. I found that I'm always attracted to eat salads because the calories are so low.

    I start my day with a cup of tea
    .
    Which is quite a whole treat of warm-feeling drink - and it worked really well. The fine tea basically made me realize just how many calories I consumed in a day.

    It's quite shocking how shocking that the size of your food equates to the calorie content - but it doesn't
    .
    You can have a whole mass of potato salad and it would have lesser calories than 1 chocolate biscuit.

    The size and quantity of your food don't matter - it's the calorie content of it
    .
    Doing 5:2 definitely opened up my eyes as to what food I consumed. As you can see, I did not deny myself anything.

    Everything I wanted, like brown rice and jacket potato, I absolutely had and loved
    .

    I have such a passion for food
    .
    I love the taste of it and the flavor. Doing the 5:2 diet doesn't deny you the food that you enjoy so you don't cross out meat, cake, ice cream, dairy, and things like that.

    You have everything in moderation
    .
    As long as you stay within your daily allowance, you can eat whatever you like throughout the week which is not hard to do.

    It is not really a diet
    .
    It does not feel difficult. It's just a way of life and it's fantastic. I'm healthy. I feel great. I love what I ate. It's the easiest thing I've ever tried.
