    Hi Lisa

    I've just started too and I was thinking exactly the same thing. I'm worried if I start eating i won't be able to stop again!! As far as I'm aware unless you're doing the CD under medical supervision you must add a meal.

    During the AAMW the meals are very small andvery low in carbs so you shoudn't gain weight in that week.
    Some cdc's insist you have the add a meal whereas others say its up to you.

    AAMW (Add A Meal Week) is done every week 5, after SS for 4 weeks. If you still have weight to lose (BMI over 25) you go back to 3 packs. AAMW is repeated every 5th week.

    Talk to your CDC maybe you miss understood them.

    You are actually 'supposed' to have it though unless your doc says its ok for you not to.

    Current rules are you must AAMW on SS unless you have it in writing from you Dr that he is ok with you not AAM.
