    Hi all,
    I am currently on LT tfr, have done so for 4 weeks and have lost 22lb but for the most part I have been doing my own thing, which I guess equates to cheating..?? :( I have been careful to eat 'sensible' things such as proteins and sometimes substitute my last shake for something solid for example. The last 2 nights I have had a BBQ steak and done exactly this.. I am a little confused as to where i sit and would seriously appreciate some advice. My chemist is also useless!

    Should start out by saying that topping up with food was auth'd by LT. I am on morphine for my back amongst other things and initially found that I wasnt quite on this planet! LOL! So the food balanced me a bit. Glad to say this is now gone for the most part unless I have a bad day and I juggle my dose. .. anyway, the idea stuck I guess and I then started nibbling the odd cracker, all of the time being mindful of the carb limit... I have 6lb to go to reach my target but seeing how I still feel I now know I would like to lose about a stone.

    The prob I have is that I am 'picking' food, quick stuff to grab and nibble and I dont get to enjoy anything. I then feel guilty and that I have blown it and then choc goes down the hatch.. still mindful of how much I have tho! But I am still having losses I am happy with... what I would prefer is 2 shakes and then to be able to have a meal with my family where I can sit down with a knife n fork and savour it!! Chemist have suggested I swap plans, I think what i am doing right now could be improved.. but I know nothing about it and the chemist were no help!

    aCan someone please explain to me what the plan entails? How many shakes? Which ones are nicest? What thing you have when you eat and how much weight I would expect to lose? I have just got in to the 12s, never been this slim since I was 12... but I al a big girl so I wont ever be 10 st! I also have the added complication of being on the urgent waiting list for 3 operations so at any point I was looking at doing a fast re-feed as I need to be able to recover properly as a couple of em are major surgeries.. will maintenance change this? Also, is the cost the same??

    Literally ANY info you can give me would be wonderful! I have searched the net and the LT site and nadda!!!!

    Thanks oh wise ones :)

    Your best bet would be to go onto cambridge, they have different plans that let you have a meal and they have loads of different shakes, porrige and yummy stuff. Sounds like this would suit you better. Only downside is that its more expensive :(
