Super-Charged September – Day 9


It’s Week 2 of Super-charged September – a boost for your 5:2 life and plans! Every day for a whole month, we’re posting questions and ideas here and on the free, private Facebook group: so you can learn from other people’s experiences as well as get on track yourself.  Catch up on all the other challenges in the News section of this site.

Here’s my answer to today’s challenge:

I’ve definitely changed meal times since starting 5:2. On Fast Days I wait till lunchtime before eating a soup/salad, and sometimes I even wait till evening so I can enjoy a bigger meal. It’s a strategy I find very useful in controlling hunger and giving me fewer chances to be tempted to eat more than my limit. I also now eat 2 rather than 3 meals on many non-fast days. There’s evidence that reducing the occasions when you eat helps the body because it’s not constantly having to deal with blood sugar spikes – a good reason to avoid too many snacks, as well.

Why not join in the discussion over on the Facebook group (it’s free and your posts won’t appear on your timeline)? Or invest in yourself and your journey by buying one of the 5:2 books, which have helped many thousand worldwide to get going?
