You should be ready to move to at least the 810 step, by the time you reach a BMI of 25. Therefore, it's advisable to do ss+ for at least a week once you get close to being 'healthy'.

Anything under 800 cals a day is classed as a vlcd, and NICE guidelines state that you shouldn't be on a vlcd with a healthy BMI, as this could lead to your body burning lean muscle, rather than fat.

Hope that helps. :)

So it is not lie lighter lifewhere you can stay on "development" until you have got the weight you want to be, then go onto maintenance? (was planning on the fact that I am likelyto lose anything 4 to 7 lbs on maintenance butthat would be my "leway")

You are on Cambridge, I assume?

I'm not entirely sure about LL, but I think you're right that you can do abstinance on LL until you're well into a healthy BMI range. I'm not quite sure why this is - possibly because your GP's involved in monitoring your weight loss. Cambridge stick strictly to the NICE guidelines though, as I guess it covers them legally.

Bear in mind, once at a BMI of 25, you can stay on 810 for some time - you don't have to start moving up the rest of the steps straight away. If you want to get down to a fairly low healthy BMI, then the losses are still good on 810.
