The 5:2 diet: Fasting day 1

So I am trying this 5:2 diet after seeing it on the British TV show Sunday Brunch (cos I am middle class and middle aged innit). The Dr on there has claimed that by reducing his calories to just 600 for two days a week.  Apparently  Roger Banister (of the 4min mile fame)  did it and recent science has proven it vastly improves blood tests. Either way let's see if I lose any weight.  Starting pic below.

So here is my Fasting Tuesday food diary:

Breakfast: Honey flavoured live Greek yoghurt. 150g (yes I weighed it!). Outside of pot says 220kcals which is 1/3 of today gone! 

Lunch: 1 can of chicken soup, Heinz.  204kcal

Dinner: Homemade Pepper Soup with bread. We're guessing 200kcals.

Drinks : 

1 bottle of Volvo flavoured water.  4kcal

1 cup of tea with one sugar and semi skimmed milk.  ~40kcal

So today I consumed around 680kcal which is only  80kcals over.  Remember that a man is meant to consume  2500per day and I probably do that drop is quite impressive. 

As I type this at the end of the day I'm peckish but think that is more psychological than physiological.  ;) 

Btw. Fez.  Fez's are cool.
