AAM advice needed please...

Evening all :)

I changed over to CD from LT nearly 4 weeks ago, have been SSing without a break for 13.5 weeks now. I'm wondering whether I should now do AAM for a week, as the last 2 weeks I have only lost 2.5lb a week - whereas previously I was losing 3lb a week every week, and I'm getting a bit demoralised.

Does AAM give your body a little 'kick-start' again after SSing for a long time? Do any of you find that it helps to speed things up again if your rate of loss has started to slow?

I'd be grateful for any advice as I just want to get things moving again! ;)

ooooh was I cross at the notion of AAM. It would mess up all my weight loss etc. But actually it ended up that it wasn't temptation about food - the portions are too damn small - it didn't mess up my weight loss - 3 times more than the previous week (okay: 3lbs vs 1lb is not a big, big deal).

If I were in your place, I'd try it on week 5 at least, then when you get to week 10 (if you need to) and are due to do it again you'll know what to expect/decide.
Thanks! Still need some advice though re whether it might help kick-start my loss again - anyone help please???? What are the portion sizes for AAM?

I apologise if this has been asked before - I've tried to do a search for this but AAM is too common a word to search on so I cant get any results.


Cambridge Diet Counsellor

Consists of..3 Cambridge diet meals (4 for guys and ladies 5'8''and over)
One of the following..50g Chicken or turkey breast without skin
80g cod, haddock, or other white fish
80g Quorn
60g Soft Tofu or 120g firm tofu
100g reduced fat cottage cheese
2 tablespoons of any veg from list

spring onions
savoy cabbage
pickled red cabbage
any other leafy green veg.

Still drink all your water.,
As you are coming up to week 5 you should go onto AAMW anyway.
You will still lose weight, you must stick with the above to the letter. No extra picking.
You can split this meal into 2 if that helps.
Then week 6 go back to SS you will still have a brill loss.

Hope this all makes sense.

Good luck

Oh and I am new: Hi! :-D

Well, if you eat something low carb, then it will ramp up your metabolism whilst still allowing you to pop right back into ketosis.

It also will set various hormones and minerals aright. :)
