In Podcast 11, we feature  a remarkable woman who set out to lose 11 stone in weight 15 months ago… and has lost nine stone/57 kilos and gone from a size 32 to a UK size 14… After a lifetime of dieting, Sharon Munsey from Bideford in North Devon had very low expectations when she started doing 5:2, but now she’s gone from a size 32 to a UK size 14 and has just taken up running for the first time, at the age of 54.

Sharon talks to Kate Harrison about how she’s lost her chocolate cravings and fills up on soup and porridge instead, and the thrill of shopping on the high street again after decades of buying ‘big tents to wear’ online. She also reveals how she eats on Fast and non-fasting days, and loves how fast days make her feel.

Sharon’s story is proof you can change your life through intermittent fasting – whether you want to lose 10lbs or 10 stone.

The 5:2 Diet Podcast with Kate Harrison Podcast 10: Simone’s guide to losing weight with a disability

In Podcast 10, Kate talks to the truly inspiring Simone Illger, who has lost over four stone in weight despite a disability and mobility issues that make exercise very difficult.  Thalidomide, a drug taken by Simone’s mother during pregnancy, led to her being born with severely shortened arms and legs.  After a lifetime battle with her weight, Simone combined simple calorie-counting with 5:2, and hasn’t looked back.  She has a wealth of tips, ideas and great observations about why fasting has helped her achieve her goal, and allowed her to become much more active and confident into the bargain. 

Simone discusses how she turned her back on gastric by-pass or other weight loss surgery and found the answer in fasting twice a week; talks home gyms, sports bras, and unconscious eating. And she explains why mayo and peanuts are off the menu, but cauliflower steaks are now a firm favourite.

The 5:2 Diet Podcast with Kate Harrison Podcast 9: Foodie fasting in France – Belinda Berry’s gourmet 5:2 life

In Podcast 9, Kate interviews Belinda Berry, who turned fasting into a gourmet experience by using the delicious local produce from where she lives in south-west France, to create light but tasty meals. Belinda and her husband Graham have lost 15 kilos each – that’s over 30 lbs - since beginning intermittent fasting in early 2013 – which means she’s now wearing clothes three dress sizes smaller. Even better, Belinda feels much better for it, with better blood sugar and cholesterol results… and a whole new attitude to her passion for cooking, which led to her publishing her own cookbook, 5:2 Healthy eating for life.

So listen to the interview now to hear about how a huge Hawaiian shirt kicked off their weight-loss journey, and also how curries, cinnamon, and even ice-cream feature on the menu chez Berry.
