    Does anyone know during which part of the plans one's glycogen has re filled? i.e. if carbs were eaten there wouldn't be a dis proportionate weight gain?

    Hi there
    As you move up the cambridge programmes you begin to refill the stores slowly while continuing fat loss. By the end of maintenance your stores should be refilled without gain. Carbs are introduced on the 1000 plan and gradually increased as you move through.

    So would it take up to the 1500 plan to refill completely?

    irish eyes, i did 20 weeks SS and then went on holiday and I ate around 1500 cals from then each day. I have lost another 3.5 lbs and didn't regain weight altho I must have refilled my glycogen store...so I think maybe it's different for everyone and you don't have to gain weight...maybe you just lose a bit less than you would have?

    Each individual is different. Unfortunately theres no way of telling whether or not your glycogen stores are full.

    Thanks. Just something I was pondering as I wanted to be eating as normally as possible with only 3lbs to go and am still worrying about gaining glycogen weight
