So, is anyone trying the 5:2 diet while on Soylent?
5:2 is the diet where you eat whatever you want (within reason) five days a week, then calorie-restrict the other two days. For women, fast days are 500 calories; for men, 600.
I’ve been on 5:2 since Dec. 2013 and have lost 25 lb. – down to 158 from 183. I’m a 5’4" female so theoretically I ought to weigh 145, max. My doctor’s watching me closely and there haven’t been any negative health effects; measures like glucose and cholesterol have shown some improvement, even, from slightly bad to back in the normal range. I tend to use Soylent as breakfast and lunch on non-fasting work days, but am considering also using it for my 500 calories on fasting days. Has anyone tried it? And, if so, any satiety issues? (Other than the normal satiety of wanting more than 500 *!$!%! calories a day, of course.)
Thanks in advance for your input!
