I failed miserably at the fast-5 last week. My hunger got more and more insane each the day and correspondingly my calories went up more each day. I don't think I can do the fast-5 and eat the small quantity of calories required for me to lose weight.
Do people find they can eat more calories on fast-5 and still lose weight? Because if I can't actually satisfy my hunger and end up eating to excess, I don't know if I should try this again next week. The mental anguish of such enormous hunger is just too difficult to deal with.
