Question about 5:2

On your feast days, do you count calories? I personally feel like things will spiral out of control if I don't but I'm not sure where to keep my calories at on those days. BMR is 1736 and TDEE is 2083, and that just seems way to high. Is it a bad thing to keep them between 1200-1600? Or do I need to at least eat close to the TDEE number?

Second fast day today, so far better than Tuesday and I have a solid plan to stick too. Does this get easier too? I read the book, or well, skimmed most of it on my kindle, but still a bit confused.

Thanks for any help you guys have. I was doing 18:6 IF as that is just a natural way for me to eat, but I wanted to shake things up. My friend wanted to do 5:2 so I thought I'd give it a try.
