Probably best to do refeed the week before you go, u can then make healthy choices and have those odd glasses of wine and hopefully wont do that much damage, then get back on the LT wagon when you come back x

Definetley do a refeed week before you go, i just had a week off for my brithday after doing a refeed and only gained 3lbs in the week, despite practically eating out every dy and having loads of cake, so hopefully if you do refeed and make healthy choices your weight will sts, then get back on lipotrim as soon as you come back? Be warned though i struggled this week! second time round is sooo much harder! i have only just recovered from the terrible headaches week 1 gives me!

Drinking alcohol is very dangerous, best to refeed and get right back on when you come home

Alcohol is a powerful inhibitor of gluconeogenesis. In fact, it forces part of the gluconeogenic metabolic process into reverse. This means that if all the glucose in the blood is being derived from gluconeogenesis then the consumption of alcohol will inevitably cause the blood glucose level to fall. Worse still, the alcohol also stops ketone body production, thus leaving the brain entirely without fuel.
A person who is ketotic is 100% reliant on gluconeogenesis to maintain adequate levels of glucose in the blood. If, under these circumstances alcohol is taken, the person will become disorientated and might lose consciousness, not just from the alcohol, but from low blood sugar. Needless to say, this could be very dangerous, and even fatal.
Alcohol does not have these effects if the glycogen stores in the liver are normal. Under these circumstances the blood glucose level in the blood is maintained by the breakdown of liver glycogen, a process that is not influenced by alcohol. If a person becomes confused under these circumstances it is due simply to the pharmacological effects of the alcohol
