Totally agree about the long-term nutrition. In fact, our normal diet is exactly that (I weigh 9st 3lbs, at 5'8" - have never had a weight issue) - but OH would be the first to admit that on top of this nutritious diet he used to add crisps, chocolate, larger portions, late night snacks etc etc. And when he feels depressed he craves !!!! (by his own admission). He's finding the 5:2 diet is working for him, and has cut the rubbish out of his diet on his non-fasting days as well. Once he attains his target weight, we'll see how things go re maintaining it. He loves any sort of vegetable, happily snacks on fruit - we've always eaten a healthy diet, it's just that he used to add unhealthy things in on top of that!!
At the end of the day, I want to help but I'm not his mother. He's asked me not to buy crisps etc when I do the weekly shopping (I would never buy them for myself anyway), but I can't stop him caving in and buying them for himself!
Suki - yes, I think building stamina is what OH needs too. He was so poorly 3 years ago - couldn't get up the stairs without stopping for a rest half way up - and he's so much better now (can walk up the hill from town to our house without stopping). But he knows he could be even fitter. Psychologically I think he sort of needs to re-learn that he can do this stuff without killing himself.
