yup you have options to do 7 days or less and do MOMO = meals on my own. i see some people out here doing 5 days on and 2 days of their own.
personally i am not sure if i could have started with that as i really needed to structure to get on track - now i manage my snacks and some of my breakfasts on my own.
so the options are there for you - when you start back i would review those with your JCC and see what really is going to work best for you to start - good luck and welcome!

I think part of deciding which to do (7/0 or 5/2) is understanding why you gained weight. I think if a big issue has been portion control, or constant snacking, or not knowing how to cook then 7/0 is probably a great place to start. For me, those weren't the issues. For me the issue was that I've had a couple situations that have caused me a lot of stress and burned a lot of my time. During those years I always put my own needs dead last. I pretty much never exercised, plus I'd completely neglect to feed myself or even prepare to feed myself (e.g. Go grocery shopping, pack a lunch for work, defrost something so I'd be able to cook dinner later.) Then by the time I focused on the fact I was hungry it was pizza or Chinese food or some other junk in large quantities.
So whereas some people need to keep less food in the house during JC, one of my goals is to keep more food in the house, and whereas some people need to eat less often, my goal is to remember to stop and have an apple or other healthy snack before I'm starving. 5/2 works well because I try and cook or shop often, but if I fail I've got a freezer of JC food to fall back on.
The other thing for me is that I'm a parent of a teenager and it's really important to me to cook for him, and to involve him in planning and preparing healthy meals so he can continue to make good choices in a few years when he is on his own.
