In an ealier blog I mentioned my two friends who had lost weight on the 5:2 diet and had achieved significant weight loss.
This diet doesn't work for all and you have to find something which works for you and you have a fighting chance of keeping to it.
So I thought you might be interested in this article..
Charlie Falconer has always been regarded as a larger than life character but no more ...he has shrunk. I must admit when I saw him on TV recently I didn't recognise him.
In the article he talks about the 5:2 diet and how he found it difficult to stick to the discipline. He then worked out a regime (which some would say that on the surface isn't so healthy) which worked for him.
Inspirational stuff! I am not so sure I could be so dedicated particularly with 5 mile a day run...but each to their own. He is no spring chicken and so those amongst you who say its too late - take heed!
I'm sure he must have taken the precaution of seeing his doctor first before embarking on the road to a healthier and fitter mature member of society!!
