    How do you go back on to food without gaining the water weight straight away? When I get to my goal (only 3lb to go wahoo!) I don't want to start normal food and gain 5lb! Am going to limit carbs, fat & calories, I live on salads & veg & chicken so it's not a problem for me, but they do have a few carbs and I don't want the scales to go up! x sacha x

    Dont know if this will help. It's Lipotrims re feed sheet. ( stolen from their forum :))

    Here is the refeed sheet.

    Refeed Programme

    DAY 1.

    Have 2 Lipotrim servings and one meal, as follows (men continue to have 2 servings, as before, while women take 1 less serving of Lipotrim).

    You may not have bread, grains (rice) or pasta until Day 4.
    Fruit should wait until Day 4 at the earliest (later if you have carbohydrate problems).

    You may have milk in tea/coffee.

    At lunchtime or evening meal time you may have some skinless, boneless chicken breast or white fish fillet, or some skinless turkey (about 4-6ozs.) The fish or chicken may be steamed, microwaved, baked or cooked with a little water in a non-stick pan. Or you may have tuna fish in water or brine (drained). Vegetarians may use tofu or quorn.

    You may also have either a moderate serving of salad (small breakfast bowl) from any of the following:
    Lettuce
    Cucumber
    Cress
    Watercress
    Tomatoes
    Mushrooms
    Onions
    Peppers
    Bean sprouts
    Celery dressed with a little lemon juice or wine vinegar
    Or if you prefer, a moderate serving (2 heaped table spoons - no more)of some cooked vegetables.

    DAY 2

    You will have only 1 Lipotrim serving and 2 meals, as described for Day 1.

    Day 3

    Same as Day 2, but you may also have - at one meal only - an 8 ounce potato, plain boiled, mashed or baked, but with no addition of any fat. You may like to top with some skimmed milk, plain yogurt or very low fat fromage frais and a sprinkle of herbs.



    Day 4-7

    A Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus:

    Up to 3 serving of fruit (if you suffer from the insulin resistance problem, then eat these late in the day and do not snack on them during the day)

    Up to 2 slices of bread or 1 pita or 1 roll or 1 bagel (without fatty spread)

    Any vegetables you want except avocado, 1 or 2 servings with your meals (2 tablespoons per serving)

    Any of the skimmed milk products.

    Fish fillet (any size) or 6 ounces of chicken or turkey, as described before, or one tin of tuna in water or brine, drained. Vegetarians may use tofu, textured vegetable protein (TVP) or quorn.

    Lean meat with all visible fat trimmed off

    Low fat recipes prepared with low fat sauces - e.g. lean mince with low fat bolognese sauce

    Medium baking potato or 6 small new potatoes or one serving of instant mashed potatoes (the kind with no added fat- read the label).

    Instead of potato, you may have 4ozs of rice or pasta (cooked weight).

    Sample menu for days 4 to 7.....


    Sample 1

    Breakfast: Lipotrim serving.

    Lunch: Fish fillet (any type - cod, salmon etc), serving of potatoes ( 1 medium jacket or 6 new potatoes or a serving-spoon mash - no added fat) Yogurt ( low fat).

    Diner: 4-6 ozs chicken (no skin), jacket potato, salad. Fruit (if appropriate) or low fat dessert.

    Evening: Sandwich (no spread of any sort), consisting of: pickles, fat-free mayonnaise, salad/carrot, slice cold meat (low fat).

    Snack 1 or 2 pieces of fruit (evening, if appropriate)




    Sample 2

    Breakfast: Lipotrim serving

    Lunch: Sandwich (no spread) - any low fat filling, e.g. tuna. Bowl of salad. 2 pieces of fruit (if appropriate) or yoghurt.

    Dinner: Spaghetti Bolognese, consisting of drained lean mince, low fat sauce, 4 ounces cooked spaghetti or rice, serving spoon of vegetables. Low fat dessert.

    Snack or Evening: Tub of very low fat fromage frais, flavoured to suit with either slices of fruit or low fat jelly crystals for a sweet option or herbs and spices with added crunchy vegetable, for a savoury snack.

    I think you will have to expect a certain amount of weight gain from the water but this will even itself out over time as your body finds its natural level. The key is to give it a couple of weeks and introduce the food slowly. I also believe white carbs to be the cause of most weight problems so if you can limit these I'm sure you will be fine. Looks like you're already making the right choices with proteins and veg/salads so I wouldn't worry too much. Oh and watch the portion sizes.

    Congratulations on nearly reaching goal :)

    I may be totally out of date on this tread but i'm only just joined! In the real world, weightlifters follow ketogenic diets to lose weight/ fat without losing muscle density and they follow high fat/high cal/low carb diets and these work for them. Things like bread, pasta etc are out the window.

    Also i guess the gal should be maybe lose a bit more than originally planned so going back to normal food doesn't mean you can't reach your goal. If that make sense!

    I may be a bit late with this but only just joined. Yes koodygirl, you're right about the bodybuilders etc. I lost most of my weight 2 years ago with CD and have maintained my loss with a moderate protein, high fat, low carb diet. I haven't counted calories at all, never feel hungry or get cravings and feel fantastic. This kind of diet is great for maintaining weight as it really lowers insulin levels making it virtually impossible for your body to store fat (insulin is needed to store fat and low carb = low insulin) :) It's too many calories for weight loss so I'm back for another round of VLCD - have lost 15lb in 3 weeks of CD and moving to Exante as soon as the parcel arrives.
    When I am down to my desired weight I will go straight back to the low carb as I know it works and I am so used to it now.

    Cheese is very high fat and high kcal best to avoid it. Only time will tell with the loss very hard to guess. Hope it's ok. If it was just a small amount you might be ok.

    Don't worry about the cheese hon, it's carbs that will kick you out of ketosis and make you likely to overeat. As long as you stick with it most of the time and don't have carbs you'll be fine. Head over to the Exante forum for more support while you're VLCDing. But when you finish losing your weight get straight back over to the Atkins / low carb forums cos it really really keeps it off without a struggle :D
