    I also have on days i feel like it 3 a day + a meal (food) or 200ml of skimmed milk

    I like 4 a day even though i dont need to be on 4 a day but as i excerise alot i need the extra calories

    Er. I am not certain, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me will come along, but at 5'6 you only have to have 3 per day and with your BMI as it is now, that should be fine without a doctor's signature. I am 5'5 and have 3; there was never any question about a) 4 packs or b) doctor.

    Re the old 'add a meal week' - now not till week 13.

    This IS your diet, and if you don't want four, I don't think you should *have* to have them!

    Yes you should stay in ketosis on the AAM week (now 810, I think) assuming you stick to the plan.

    You can have 3 or 4. It's up to you. If you have 3, your CDC does have to inform your doctor, but it's only a letter, doesn't need a signature. It's just to inform him, nothing more.
    Yes, it's week 13, though some CDCs do prefer people to have normal food before then so that they don't build up a phobia of food ;) You don't have to though.

    You do really need to talk with her about this. If you can get past the business of what week you have to eat according to Cambridge, and down to the basics of why it might be a good idea for you to eat.

    I'm sure she'll have some ideas to help you cope.

    It depends which plan she wants you to do. Since it's not week 13 (which is 810), she might be thinking just SS+. SS+ ketosis should be fine. 810, you can slip out of it. If that worries you at this stage, go for the fish or chicken options, rather than the quorn and cottage cheese.

    That's excellent :clap: Talk to her. Tell her about your worries. Ask her why she wants you to go onto a higher plan
