Hi All, I'm back and this the only thing I can do with a good chance of it working. Some of you know my story but the latest is that I tried a VLCD for 5 days up to yesterday. I weighed in at 13st 7 last Thursday and going to weigh this Thursday and thereafter. I'm 5ft 1 and not done much formal exercise for a year and lost quite a bit of tone. Going on holiday in now 11 weeks time and want to feel good about myself. I'm not going to lose as much as being on a VLCD so I think shape is going to be the best measure. I don't normally lose much on CC and want some flexibility on the weekend. So what about: 1. M-F 1400 cals and 3x exercise and up calories to 1600 cals on weekend. Or 2. M-F 1500 cals and 3x exercise and on weekend have one portion controlled treat meal? Advice please?
