    Day 4 before you can have sweetcorn Marie and I am not too sure which day for the pepsi max, I have attached the daily plan, sorry I am in work now so I dont have time to look through it for you.

    The plan for Refeeding applies to both men and women...
    Refeeding



    Keep these points in mind:

    First day after Total Food Replacement is high protein.

    Second day is high protein, modest complex carbohydrate - low fat.

    Third day is high protein, modest compels carbohydrate with some cereals - low fat.

    Fourth day is high protein, high complex carbohydrate, modest cereals, fruit and other simple sugars - low fat.

    The rest of your life is low fat and weight under control.

    Lipotrin Refeeding:

    The first step in weight management is bridging the gap between Total Food Replacement (TFR) and, so called, "real food". Directly following TFR we are going to guide you through a slow and gradual refeeding process. There are two reasons for the refeeding strategy:

    1. You have lost a considerable amount of body fat during your Lipotrim regime, but you have also depleted your glycogen stores, along with their attending water. If you jump directly from TFR into a high carbohydrate meal, your glycogen and water stores will fill up excessively, causing an immediate weight gain that may be as much as 7-10 pounds. This is not a fat gain - it is a fluid gain - but is demoralizing, nonetheless. That is why the transition plan introduces carbohydrate in a controlled way, so that such a weight retain should not occur.

    2. During your TFR regime, you ate nothing in addition to your Lipotrim servings very day and drank enough water to float a small tanker. During this time, your palate, used to a steady diet of salty, fatty, oily and sugary foods, has had an enforced rest.

    Something very interesting has happened during the rest: your tastebuds, reprieved from a fat/salt/sugar entrapment, have undergone a purification. This palate retraining is one of the most profound results of your TFR regime. Do not throw this perception away by eating your way into the same old problem foods again, just because you used to like them. Changes have to be made to your previous eating behaviour and now is the time to take positive action.

    The plan (applies to both men and women).....

    Follow exactly - do not add extras and, more importantly, do not miss out any steps. You may have milk in your tea and coffee, if required, and you can now have diet drinks again. Avoid fruit juices (simple sugars) until the end of the week. No alcohol. Try to drink plenty of water. Most people do not drink adequate water and now you are in the habit, stick with it. At least 2 litres per day.

    DAY 1.

    Have 2 Lipotrim servings and one meal, as follows (men continue to have 2 servings, as before, while women take 1 less serving of Lipotrim).

    at lunchtime or evening meal time you may have some skinless, boneless chicken breast or white fish fillet, or some skinless turkey (about 4-6ozs.) The fish or chicken may be steamed, microwaved, baked or cooked with a little water in a non-stick pan. Season with salt and pepper. Or you may have tuna fish in water or brine (drained). Vegetarians may use tofu or quorn.

    You may also have either a moderate serving of salad (small breakfast bowl) from any of the following: lettuce, cucumber cress and watercress, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, peppers, bean sprouts, celery dressed with a little lemon juice or wine vinegar (try balsamic vinegar, it is quite special), or if you prefer, a moderate serving ( 2 heaped table spoons - no more)of some cooked vegetables. You may have bread, grains (rice) or pasta until Day 4. Fruit should wait until Day 4 at the earliest (later if you have carbohydrate problems). You can have milk in tea/coffee.

    DAY 2

    You will have only 1 Lipotrim serving and 2 meals, as described for Day 1.

    Day 3

    Same as Day 2, but you may also have - at one meal only - an 8 ounce potato, plain boiled, mashed or baked, but with no addition of any fat. You may like to top with some skimmed milk, plain yogurt or very low fat fromage frais and a sprinkle of herbs.

    Day 4-7

    A Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus.....

    up to 3 serving of fruit (if you suffer from the insulin resistance problem, then eat these late in the day and do not snack on them during the day)

    up to 2 slices of bread or 1 pita or 1 roll or 1 bagel (without fatty spread)

    Any vegetables you want except avocado, 1 or 2 servings with your meals (2 tablespoons per serving)

    any of the skimmed milk products.

    fish fillet (any size) or 6 ounces of chicken or turkey, as described before, or one tin of tuna in water or brine, drained. Vegetarians may use tofu, textured vegetable protein (TVP) or quorn.

    Lean meat with all visible fat trimmed off

    low fat recipes prepared with low fat sauces - eg lean mince with tomatoes Bolognese sauce

    medium baking potato or 6 small new potatoes or one serving of instant mashed potatoes (the kind with no added fat- read the label).
    Instead of potato, you may have 4ozs of rice or pasta (cooked weight).

    This schedule may be continued for several weeks - especially if you have lost a lot of weight - 5/6 stones or more - as you will need time to adjust to a different eating behaviour and quantities. Check your weight every week at the pharmacy; if it is going up, then action must be taken to address the types and quantities of food eaten. The maintenance food products are advised during this time to add extra control whilst adjusting to your new eating behaviour.

    Sample menu for days 4 to 7.....

    Breakfast Lipotrim serving.

    Lunch Fish fillet (any type - cod, salmon etc), serving of potatoes ( 1 medium jacket or 6 new potatoes or a serving-spoon mash - no added fat) Yogurt ( low fat).

    Diner 4-6 ozs chicken (no skin), jacket potato, salad. Fruit (if appropriate) or low fat dessert.

    Evening Sandwich (no spread of any sort), consisting of: pickles, fat-free mayonnaise, salad/carrot, slice cold meat (low fat).

    Snack 1 or 2 pieces of fruit (evening, if appropriate)

    Have you finished with her completely now since you have given up the lipotrim?

    Its just a pity you cant get those maintenance shakes in Ireland, you could use them as a breakfast.

    I am loving counting the calories, because when I did WW or SW, I overate on the free foods, so calories works out better for me.

    Just ask away hun, we are all here to help each other.
