Heads up! You should do your research too, not just trust me or another blog. I just drank when I was thirsty.
5:2 diet meal plans: What to eat for 500 calorie fast days
Some said you need to stay as inactive as possible. They talked about staying in bed for most of days 2 and 3, not walking more than a half mile, and keeping their activity low even during the refeeding period. I said screw that and went about life as usual. They also said make sure you spend a week not eating carbs, reduce your diet slowly, etc. I spent the day before eating an absurd amount of junk food. I averaged hours of sleep a night, but that was the only change in my amount of rest.
No naps. Days one and two were rough, day three was great except for when I was in boring meetings.
Days four and five I felt amazing. I had all the benefits of meditation, but without needing to meditate. Another interesting thing: time moved slower. I was never rushed. But that may have been because I eat really fast.
Without that rushed process twice a day, maybe I was less rushed in general. Either way, it was remarkable how calm I was. The only real negative was that I was very, very sensitive to the cold. My theory is that my body was rationing its energy mostly towards brain functioning and movement, and not spending as much on thermogenesis. I was keeping my room degrees warmer than normal, and still wearing a sweater.
Oh, one last positive. I would post pictures, but you would have to buy me a drink first. For reference, the fast started on Saturday at 6pm. But today… water. Hardly being productive at all, good thing I finished stuff earlier.

Wentworth recommends tracking your calories when you start the diet. Your body weight may fluctuate drastically from day to day, especially on non-fasting days, he says. Lastly, he recommends avoiding endurance sports like long-distance running while on the diet. After six months on the diet, Wentworth lost about 50 pounds. He said the diet worked for him because he only had to restrict his eating twice a week instead of every single day, and could still eat some unhealthy foods.
