So to recap, the Fast Diet was done for 12 weeks then a few more pre holiday (eating normally for 5 days a week, consuming approx 700 calories for 2).
I then lost weight whiles we were on holiday in Portugal (although I did eat cake as the hotel food was too good to say no to and I refuse to diet on holiday) but we walked tonnes, swam all day and I came back fitter and leaner than before we left.
So for those who are new to this blog, I started the Fast Diet to help me to lose my baby weight (and become healthier with promises of protection from heart disease, diabetes and cancer) and succeeded in completing 11 weeks of the diet before having a 5 week well earned break.
I can't quite believe that I've been doing the Fast Diet for 11 weeks! 11 whole weeks! It's flying by. For those who don't know, the Fast Diet (eating 500 calories for women, 600 for men 2 days a week then normally for 5 days) was conceived by Dr Moseley who researched diets which aided health and longevity on his BBC Horizon documentary, Eat, Fast and Live Longer.
I'm now on week 3 of Dr Michael Moseley's revolutionary Fast Diet-where he advocates eating normally for 5 days and 'fasting' (consuming 500 cals for women, 600 for men) for the remaining 2. Moseley found this way of eating helps lower the hormone IGF -1 which assists us in growing as children but ages us in adulthood.
