5:2

A couple of people had asked, and instead of writing long emails, I'll summarize my experience so far here. (Easier for me, I admit.)

I am now finishing my first month of intermittent fasting (5:2). Essentially, I pick two days a week and don't eat on those days.

That's a generalization. I have been consuming <500 calories those days, generally in liquid form. I usually get more like 300, in truth, but I'm still working out the kinks. The next morning I get up and eat like a normal day.
