I work a sedentary job as a receptionist and did barely any exercise in that 12 weeks. I had 2 fast days a week which were usually between 300 and 600 calories and lost almost 12 kilos!
I still ate junk sometimes but started making better food choices as time went on. My water intake went from maybe a glass a day to 2+ litres.
I have recently been on a 3 month break from fasting due to surgery before Christmas and have been a bit slack for a while due to convenience and ease for my partner and I still hadn’t put the weight back on! I have just recently started fasting again and am 2 weeks in and already seeing positive results yet again!
I had been struggling with my self confidence and still do, but after yo-yo dieting, taking duromine (weight loss medication that’s basically a stimulant), starving myself, killing myself on the treadmill and doing whatever I could to lose weight I finally found something that works. Something as simple as eating a BUNCH of vegetables and a little bit of chicken twice a week (there’s plenty more meals that’s just one I liked). Nothing drastic, no disgusting foods and no killing my self at the gym. I am now confident enough to join up with a gym again and have even been spotted in the change rooms doing my makeup in just my sports bra and shorts 😱 but seriously the support within the course is also second to none.
Everyone is encouraging and kind and I would hands down sign up for sparkle 5:2 for life again. Even just for the friends I’ve made. The weight loss of course is fabulous and was my main goal but the community of women is amazing too!
