I've not used the 5:2 diet before so i don't know much about it, but i just don't see it as being a long term thing iykwim. I'm trying to just slowly change my eating habits permanently to be healthier, so eventually eating better choices and less crap will become second nature. How does that 5:2 diet fair in the long term? Or do you just stop it and then have to struggle to maintain? I don't get it really. I had a pretty good day calorie wise yesterday, but i haven't started up my RI30. I need to get heavier weights. I have some 1kg ones, but she says you need heavy ones too, so what's that? 3kg? 5kg? I don't think i could manage with 5kg!! lol! I just don't know how much heavier they should be.
