    I mentioned on another thread that my chemist suggested i do refeed this week which i am doing as i wanted to slow down the weightloss to help my skin not stretch! (have skin that stretchmarks quite easily). I Am expecting to lose 2lbs a week on this but just wondering will i be starting maintenance next week? Seems to be a very grey area in the leaflets i have. I do not want to maintain my weight i want to continue to lose. Anyone have any idea??:confused:

    not sure to be honest but you could ring lipotrim direct for their thoughts and suggestions - they are very helpful on the phone, and respond to emails really quickly too.

    I'm sure I've read you can do day 4 onwards of refeed for as long as u need. Just healthy eating without shakes! x

    Sorry hun, not sure but I'd go with MsBlonde's suggestion and ring Lipotrim on their freephone number. Many who have say Val is really helpful.

    If you still want to lose can you not have 2 shakes and a low fat/low carb meal, like chicken and salad? Not sure if that would work though so best to ask the experts on the phone.

    Good luck.

    This is advice from the prestwich website:

    Days 4-7
    each day have a Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus..............

    • Up to 3 servings of fruit (if you suffer from an insulin resistance problem, then eat these late in the day and do not snack on them during the day).
    • Up to 2 slices of bread or 1 pita or 1 roll or 1 bagel (without fatty spread).
    • Any vegetables you want except avocado, 1 or 2 servings with your meals (2 tablespoons per serving).
    • Any of the skimmed milk products.
    • Fish fillet (any size) or 6 ounces of chicken or turkey, as described before, or one tin of tuna in water or brine, drained. Vegetarians may use tofu, textured vegetable protein (TVP) or quorn.
    • Lean meat with all visible fat trimmed off.
    • Low fat recipes prepared with low fat sources - e.g. lean mince with tomato Bolognese sauce.
    • Medium baking potato or 6 small potatoes or one serving of instant mashed potatoes (the kind with no added fat - read the label). Instead of potato, you may have 4ozs of rice or pasta (cooked weight).
    This schedule may be continued for several weeks - especially if you have lost a lot of weight - 5/6 stones or more - as you will need time to adjust to a different eating behaviour and quantities. Check your weight every week at Prestwich Pharmacy; if it is going up, then action must be taken to address the types and quantities of foods eaten. The maintenance food products are advised during this time to add extra control whilst adjusting to your new eating behaviour.
    The main point to understand in following the plan is not to have added fat in your food or in it's preparation.
    There is more than adequate fat for daily requirements naturally occuring in a diet chosen from a wide range of foods. There is no benefit to adding fat in preparation - only to add weight back on.
