    All i did on food week was add 100g protein to my carbonara and around the same weight of veg ie cauli. You might be best messaging Exante though, they have a facebook page where they answer questions etc.

    I know they recommend it but I think you'll find there's a few of us through personal choices choose not to do the AAM week - exante have recipes on the website so check them out they will probably help.

    I did keep losing weight yea but if you feel you dont want or need the food week then dont do it. Your choice.

    I thought you had to do the food week to stop your body going into starvation mode and slowing your loss.:confused:

    I think it is a legal requirement in order for them to sell it online without a proof of a Doctors check, like lighter life for example do. On lighterlife you do no food breaks. I don't believe theres any logic but that, its all myths!

    I am doing a month on, then a month off, means its easier to fit round social events etc without feeling deprived. Hope you find a balance.

    You are right - the metabolism slows on VLCD. So adding a meal now and then helps. I never added a meal every day for a week just now and then for about eight months. Good weight loss, felt well and crucially lost weight. No hair loss either, strong nails, teeth fine and no aches and pains. I am a bit of a zealot ! Sorry. Slightly evangelical on occasions.

    It's worth upping the protein on add a meal week. Fish, lean skin free chicken, lean meat - nothing processed they pump full of carbs.

    Ooh thank you I think I will add the food break but for 5 days just small meals...eg garlic prawns with salad leaves might just keep me on track!

    Hi there. Thats not too surprising, theres all sorts of hidden sugars and carbs in food, even in salad. My guess you'll have a big loss this next week :)
