@jaob: So for my 5:2 I have been eating normally but healthfully for 5 days, and then fasting with only 500 calories a day, whenever I want them. I have to say that I *tend* to eat less on my open days. Yesterday was a horrible day, but I am just going to write it off and forge onward. Thankfully today is a fast day. Generally on days when I fast I find I do better when I simply do not start eating, i.e., if I eat a little something for breakfast I find I am hungry all day. If I simply don't eat and just drink my two big cups of coffee, I can easily make it to dinner.
Work is kind of a bust right now (our boss told us 4 of the 40 of us will get laid of, but no notices yet). This is both stressful and motivating.
Keep going everyone!
