Icemoose explains it very well in one of his posts...

The original report on VLCD's stated that they should be done for 28 days and then a break which is why AAM was created with Cambridge.

I tell all my clients to do it as it doesn't really affect weight loss, doesn't affect ketosis and can be something to look forward to if you are on the weight loss train for a long time.

If people are adamant that they don't want to do it then they do need a GP signed letter saying that the GP is happy for them to stay on sole source.

With the new NICE guidelines stating a 12 week window of abstinance then I would imagine GP's are going to not want to sign this.

CD no long call it AAM but SS+

Cambridge recommend that if you are doing SS, you go up to SS+ for a week about week 5, then go back down to SS.

The NICE guidelines state that you must go up to 810 for a week after a maximum of 12 weeks on either SS or SS+.

Very-low-calorie diets (less than 1000 kcal/day) may be used for a maximum of 12 weeks continuously, or intermittently with a low-calorie diet (for example for 2–4 days a week), by people who are obese and have reached a plateau in weight loss.

1.2.4.33 Any diet of less than 600 kcal/day should be used only under clinical supervision.
