    Hi folks,

    I am on week 4 of SS and I am confused as to how the AAM week works!

    I dont know when you have to do it, or whether you have to?

    You don't have to do it until week 13 if you don't want to. I don't think it's even called AAMW any more unless you're a CD dinosaur (like me!:D) it's now a week of 810. I find it boosts my weight loss as it shakes up your motabolisum (I can't spell! lol) a little bit.
    HTH.;)

    Its sounds like its worth doing...

    I assume the only thing is that the weight comes off slower during that time?

    Do you stay in Ketosis?

    Some stay in ketosis and some don't at 810 (it's a suck it and see senario).
    Strangly enough I tend to lose more weight on my AAMW than I do on ss weeks (but then I'm a bit of a freak of nature on this diet!:D).

    Yeah, I like the sound of that!

    I assume it speeds up your metabolism quite a lot in your case?

    13 weeks would make mine a couple of weeks into Jan.

    You could always slot it into the x-mas week?

    Might be bettter

    If I can bring it forward, it may be a better way of doing it seems as how I will be eating for 3 of the days anyway.

    So at x-mas you can eat for 7 days instead of the 3 that you planned!;)

    I do the Dutch version of CD and I "AAM" every 4th week. I do not get out of ketosis and I still lose it just seems 'slower' because I'm filling myself up :)
