I am supposed to be starting 'add a meal' next week. The trouble is I am on a deadline of Nov 24th for my holiday and am pushing it now to loose as much weight as I want. I dont know wether to carry on SSing as some say they do until the holiday to at least be near my target weight and presentable in a swimming costume or to do the add a meal week. Those of you that have done the add a meal week, did you have a small weight loss that week or did it make no difference? Another option maybe to have 2 shakes and the small meal to keep calories down. I also dont understand if you continue to be in ketosis in the add a meal week as we are always told that even small amounts of food knock you out of it.
