    Here's a thought...whilst we are on LT we are restricted to 400 cal a day plus water etc etc. So when refeed and maintenence happens and then ultimately one is 'let loose' to control your own eating - does anyone still consider good old fashioned calories. The reason I ask is that you could follow a low fat, low carb, high protein, GI, etc etc ongoing eating plan but whats stopping you eating more calories than you actually need and thereby put on weight. Do any of them take cals into consideration too ?? Lets face it too many Cals in and not enough out is basic maths and how we all got fat in the first place - :sigh::sigh:

    I think ultimately we have to keep our eyes on the basics of weight gain/loss - you do right and it seems to work for you xx

    I think I had the same thoughts as you with other eating plans... what's to stop you overeating on them, even if you are eating 100% healthy foods if the maths don't add up you will still gain weight. Calorie counting also gives the freedom to have whatever you fancy.

    I plan on going low cal using nutracheck to keep track of what i eat for the first few weeks, but that doesnt stop you following the principles of low fat and low GI also but to follow something like a slimming world red day pattern would be bad because how many times have people been told oooooooo on a red day you can eat a whole chicken if you want yeah and eat about 2000 extra calories lol
