Hi guys! Thanks so much for visiting my blog.

I work in medical communications, and in my spare time (when I get around to it) I blog about stuff.

You’ll find a whole load of things on here, but mostly I focus on book reviews. I LOVE a good book. Who doesn’t right?


If you’re interested in science, I’d also like to plug my science site, Gingernut’s Science Dunk, because I gotta get my clicks somehow!

    Hi 🙂 how’s the fast diet going for? Has there been any results? How long have you been on it for? 🙂

      Hi :]

      Its going well for me! I’ve been on it since mid-december, where I started at 10st 11. I’m now 10st 6, so the results haven’t been fast but they are significant. I’m trying to get down to 10st by the summer. The way I’m doing it (evening to evening, rather than a full day) means that I’m only fasting for 24 hours at a time rather than 26 (when you include sleep) so that might go some way to explaining why I’ve not lost very quickly.

      What I found was that I didn’t really lose any weight for the first month, but then it just dropped off really fast. My mum has found the same thing.

      How are you finding it? 🙂

        Oh great, I’m glad its working 🙂
        Do you feel any better physically, mood etc?

        I feel a little despondent as I have a fair a bit of weight to loose (around 20kgs) and was hoping the results would be a little quicker than what I’ve heard from a few people on the 5:2. I’ll definitely give it a go and stay committed.

        Fingers crossed!
        All the best for your journey, keep in touch, I’d love to hear more about how you find it 🙂

          I feel better about myself when I’m eating rubbish food because I make up for it a bit on the fast days, but I’ve not noticed any emotional differences yet. I’m not a very stressed out person though so maybe it’s just me 🙂

          Thank you very much, I hope you keep in touch too! :] xx
