Short P.S. to My Last Blog Re the FastDiet

 (a follower named Mollie left a comment on my last blog inquiring about the FastDiet and Sarah, the British housewife who put me on to it.   I just left the following comment under her comment because I have no way of reaching her.  On the off chance that some of you had similar queries I am just posting it here.  Needless to say, I will have a lot more to say about the subject in my next blog or two.  I have found it to be a most fascinating subject and a totally marvelous way of eating.  More later.)

I just tried to give Mollie the info she asked for on the FastDiet and Sarah's blogs about it but she has no blogsite nor contact info so I will just leave a few bits here in case she comes back to look.
The best way to get the information is to Google the FastDiet or the 5:2 Diet.
To read Sarah's blogs re her experiences, go to her blogsite


and keep going back through older posts till you get to about April 30. From there thru May there are several very interesting pieces on her reactions and successes,

As for me....I am sold on it....am into my 5th week , lost 5 lbs, feel much better, have practically no problem with hunger on my fast days and can easily see myself staying on this program for the rest of my life. I could never say that about any other diet I have ever been on and, take my word for it, I have been on ALL of them, every damned last one.   For the first time in my life I feel in control and am not living in fear of my cravings and that, my dears, is really Something.
Hope this helps.

Healthier and slightly skinnier, Lo


  1. Ignore my last email, glad to hear your diet is working.

  2. It does sound like you've found what works for you -- excellent! The "experts" who want us to believe "one size fits all" and that the one size is what they tell you make me nuts. Everyone is different and i'm glad you shared this.

  3. Lo
    Congrats on your weight loss. I too, am on the losing end. (Sounds like an old Neil Young song) I'm doing Dr. Elliot Abravanel's diet for the body type. I'm a thyroid type and I guess I've depleted my thyroid with over consumption of carbs. So far I've lost 10 lb. in 2 months and I feel lighter. I have 8 to 10 more lb to go. Now the exercise, which I hate.
    So nice of you to visit my blog and leave a comment. I hope we can get to now each other through our blogs.
    Take care of yourself and high-five on your great diet.

  4. I lost ten pounds after I retired but it was just from stopping at one beer a day. Or two. One, or two. And then I stop. Sometimes some wine, which doesn't count. One or two.
