I'm still sticking with 5.2! My 2 fasting days of 500 cal. max. will also be on Mon. & Thur. I'm looking forward to fasting tomorrow, after a weekend of eating days that included pizza, wine, popcorn, cereal & girl scout thin mint cookies.

The "New York Times" has an article on 5.2 in the Style section today. It is all the rage across the Pond.

Still following along in spirit I would like to do a form of it for maintenance, but I've gone back into weight loss mode to lose a few more pounds and right now I'm doing normal JUDDD rotations. I'm another maybe in April person

125.6 this morning after I threw in an extra DD yesterday. Very nice.

I love 5:2 and will continue with it long term I am certain. I like that if I need too I can always do this extra DD or even go back to regular rotations when I ever I wish.

I just love this freedom to enjoy food and still to have DDs, which I actually love.

I'm still in. Hit a new low yesterday at 159.4, after Friday's DD. I don't seem to be bouncing more than a couple of pounds over that, so I'm pleased.

I didn't go down at all the last two DDs, so I'm guessing that I'm eating too much. I think I will go back to daily rotations starting tomorrow because I have trouble keeping my UD calories low enough to lose weight with only 2 DDs a week. It is very good to know that this will work for maintenance when I get there though!

No more 5:2 for me. I don't mind DDs when they help toward my goal, but when they don't make any difference at all that's even worse than ADF.

Good luck to all who are doing this for weight loss, and I'll be back in about 58 lbs.

Glad it's working for some/most of you but it was not the answer for me. Waay up (5 lbs!) after 2 stellar DDs (<400), 3 low UDs (1400-1500) and 2 UDS with no counting but not going crazy. I expect to lose at least 2 of those pounds with a good DD today since my rings feel tight, I started exercising again this weekend and also, I am a bit, ahem, backed up but still not liking the trend. Maybe in maintenance, but not for weight loss for me. TTFN - wishing you all good luck!

Thank god I didn't actually gain much, but definitely not losing. I do wonder if this had been the first IF plan I had tried if it would have worked better? I don't think people coming in straight from ADF to this will see the same kind of losses, if they don't in fact, gain!

Yes, I will be checking in from time to time to see your progress, Cindy.

I also wondered if being eod IF before starting 5:2 caused less weight loss?

I was losing very slowly toward the end with ADF/JUDDD, and switched to 5:2 for maintenance. I'm still losing very slowly, maybe slightly slower than with JUDDD, but still losing.

I think I could lose with 5:2, but only with a lot more diligence. I guess it's easier to just fast eod and eat with relative impunity on UDs (compared to counting every calorie 5 days a week). I'm so far from goal, I just can't hang around anymore to wait and see if the numbers on the scale will start going down.

Average weight loss on 5:2 is 1lb per week

From the 5:2 FastDiet forum (uk)

Average weight loss on 5:2 is 1lb per week
by carorees » 08 Mar 2013, 13:52

"We have now been collecting data on our progress tracker for over 2 months, with nearly 1500 people contributing, and have some interesting results that can give you an indication of how much weight you can expect to lose on 5:2.

Key points:
* The weekly loss is generally small...around 1lb per week (data from 842 users).
* Some people lose a lot of weight in the first week but then plateau so that after a month or so, such that the weight loss still works out at 1lb per week.
* Some people are lucky and have managed to lose more
* Some people are unlucky and have lost less
* People whose BMI is already in the healthy range are more likely to lose more slowly (around 0.75lb/week)
* People whose BMI is high are more likely to lose quickly (around 1.75-2lb per week)
* Men lose weight faster (1.4lb per week) than women (1lb per week)

For people who choose to fast more often:
* The weekly loss doing 4:3 is pretty much the same as with 5:2 at around 1lb per week (55 users)
* The weekly loss doing ADF is a little bit higher at around 1.2 lb per week (11 users)"

I'm sort of here, I have been doing at least 2 DD's a week, sometimes 3, but did get away from strict JUDDD for maintenance. I haven't been counting the regular day calories, but don't go over 600 on a DD and try never to have more than 3 UD in a row.

I'm maintaining doing this 119-121 or so. Would rather have the high number 119 but I'm pretty sure my body will fight me every inch just to maintain 2 lbs less, so I gave in and this is where I will stay unless it comes off on its own lol.

Who'd have ever thunk that, hugh?

This week instead of doing my Fast Days with a Quest protein bar & Right Light meal replacement shakes, I'm going to try doing a couple "Dukan diet - protein only attack days" to see if that rewards me with that 5:2 ave. 1 lb. weekly loss.

I'm strongly considering calling goal @ 140 lbs. - hopefully I can reach that by Easter on the 31st. Then my plan will be to maintain a 5 lb. range between 135-140 over the summer with 5:2.

I had an original goal of 135lbs but decided to call goal last month at 141 after getting weight loss fatigue and stalling. Then, in transitioning to maintenance I lost another 3 pounds without trying. And last week, after being in maintenance for several weeks, I decided to go back into weight loss mode with JUDDD, had two dds so far and have lost another 2 lbs I'm now a pound away from my original goal and now want to get closer to 130lbs for my maintenance range. Calling goal and taking a break worked great for me and gave me the breather I needed. It may work well for you to do the same?

Same here. I only gave it a week, but this morning I was up a pound over my January start weight.

I'm still wondering if your UDs are too low. But, like in the thread I started - we'll get back to JUDDD'ing and make into the elusive Maintenance Wonderland - someday!
