    No it's not on Cambridge, you must do AAM every fifth week or get your dr's consent to continue without it. Your CDC should not be telling you this, you do need your AAM week. It's fine to do and nothing to worry about, it may slow your losses slightly, but most people catch up the following week. Use your yellow book to get the amounts of food you can have and enjoy it.

    aamw is also there to stop your metabolism slowing down, so its a sort of kick start to keep your weight loss coming.

    Can't believe my councilor advised that!!

    I've just phoned Cambridge and they also said you must do add a meal week!!!

    How do I do it? I seem to remember cottage cheese being on the list? How much should I have? Do I still have three shakes??

    Should you have low fat cottage cheese? Do you still loose weigh during this week?

    Protein

    11g/4oz cottage cheese (reduced fat)
    50g/2oz chicken or turkey breast without skin
    80g/3oz cod, haddock or other white fish
    80g/3oz quorn
    60g/2.5oz soft tofu opr 120g(5oz) firm tofu

    and...

    Veg

    2 tablespoons of one of the following...

    green salad leaves eg. roquette, lambs lettuce watercress, raddiccio, little gem/romain lettuces.

    celery, cucumber or red raddishes

    courgettes or marrow

    broccoli, cauliflower or any cabbage including pickled cabbage.

    spinach, kale, turnip or taro tops

    asparagus, fennel and celeriac

    chinese leafy greens such as pak choi or chinese cabbage.

    don't add salt or fat but add herbs and a wee bit of stock if you want.

    Then back to SSing the following week - HTH

    Play by the rules and do your AAM.

    I lost two pounds the week before AAM (on SSing) and 5 lbs during my AAM week, so don't worry that you won't lose weight, you will.

    My CDC said I could miss the first AAM week if I wanted to because it might help me to stick to the plan better but then I should do it all other months. Thats just her interpretation though as officially you should.

    I am also not doing aam week but this is because I am only starting week 3 and getting married in Sept, so will only be doing ss for 7/8 weeks. So cdc said to miss it out.

    I think that's where my downfall came was with my first AAM...couldn't stop cheating from then on...

    Just finished my second AAM...and have a new resolve now. I need some serious serious weight loss before my holliers....and I want that quickly...I have 7 weeks and 4 days until I head off...
