I went on a diet and my husband lost 16 lbs.
Then 18 months ago I was watching PBS and a program came on about an English doctor (Michael Moseley) and his 5/2 Fast diet. In essence you ate whatever you wanted for 5 days and fasted for 2 days. Now I thought I could do that. And it has worked wonderfully for me...except I fast 3 days some weeks instead of 2. There is a lot of information on the internet about this diet and fasting in general.
I used to cook substantial meals 5 days a week and we had leftovers for a couple days. Now I cook 2 days a week, we have leftovers 2 days, and on my fast days my husband has soup from the freezer with a salad and dessert. All this time he has still had sweet rolls and jam with breakfast, dessert with lunch, dessert at dinner, snackies during the evening plus every night at bedtime he has a peanut butter sandwich, milk and more dessert. In addition he always has large containers of chocolates from Costco.
Well he recently had his physical and over those 18 months he gradually lost 16 pounds and his doctor does not want him to lose any more.. Not sure how we're going to solve this problem... Over the same 18 months I lost almost 38 lbs. and actually feel good on fast days. For me this has become a comfortable life style. But since I know he is getting a healthy diet with lots of veggies and proteins, I think it's going to be his responsibility to find a way to stuff in more calories. But I'm off to bake him more desserts today..
