Two Days A Week Fasting

By Mike Parker

Recently, I read in a book that I could lose weight and not muscle by fasting two days a week.  I decided to put these to the test.  However, the first week didn't seem to go that well and eating three meals a day the rest of the week was hard.  If I eat, I tend to eat more and more.  If I starve, It seems to be much easier. 

The book I got the idea from is called, 'The Fast Diet' by Dr Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer.  The first week I seemed to put on weight, but I had just completed several days of high restriction of calories.  With this in mind, I thought I would just continue to see what happened.  After another week, I started to put on loads of weight, so I went back to restricting cals every day.  It seems that even if I fast 2 days a week and eat normal the rest of the week, I will end up putting weight on. Not good. Not good at!
