I've been in Rotterdam for almost a month and I have to confess that I have only managed one day of fasting a week since I have been here.  I have been taking a lot more exercise than I normally do, walking a lot... but even so, I fear that the full breakfasts and eating out a lot more than usual will have meant I've put on weight.

I'm waiting until I am home to weigh myself but I can tell from the feel of my clothes I am heavier than when I arrived.  Oops.  Back to 5:2 when I get home.

Guardian recipes for 5:2 diet

The Guardian has an article on the 5:2 diet today, including three odd recipes.  You can find it here but I am also going to add the recipes to the recipe page, in case they change address at some stage in the future. 

The comments stream is a bit odd.  A lot of people seem to feel very hostile to the idea of the 5:2 diet, and I'm not sure why.
