its nescesary to have atleast 1 week of refeed!

Personnaly I recommend atleast two!

If you have lost over 5 stone its recommended for a few more weeks!

Why dont you take some shakes over with you?

I know you want to stay on TFR for as long as poss but you can always come back on it if you're not happy with your weight when you come back from hols. Whatever you do I know you'll do it right, afterall we wouldn't have stuck to this 100% for this long if we weren't going to do the refeed right.

If you're planning on lots of alcohol I would refeed for 2 weeks just to make sure.

oh no!

My plan is to come back to LT after my hol and do 2 shakes and a main meal a day for a while to see what i can get down to before my other holiday to Turkey at the end of August. I'd like to be 12st by then so hopefully wont have much to lose :)

They were indeed chels - think i may give your refeed diary a read over the weekend and get some ideas :)

How long did you refeed for? Like how long did you carry on having the shakes?

I would definitely refeed for 2 weeks as this way the glycogen levels will fill up at a normal speed. Definitely if going to drink alcohol too.

Woohoo, 6 weeks, 6 days, you wont believe how good the food tastes. It makes sense with you Tanya especially as you are going to follow shakes and a proper meal after your holiday. You have done everything brilliantly up to now, so you might as well follow the refeed properly too........hehe.

Dont be scared of carbs, they are good for you, but like everything else - in moderation. Its surprising where you find carbs, your cereal, fruit, veg, bread, pasta, rice. I would not say DONT have carbs, but please done be frightened of them, but sticking to the refeed properly its not a lot of carbs anyway.

I am frightenend! they are my worst nightmare!!! hahaha

Only cause they really dont agree with me at all - i guess you are right though everything in moderation - i plan on only having the heavy carbs once or twice a week (like pasta or bread) so i guess my body coooooould just about handle that! lol

Lol it will be scary at first Tanya, but once you start shopping for food and have your fridge and all stocked it becomes terrorfying but also exciting!

I am not eating too many carbs, with the exception of my porridge in the morning I try not to have carbs for supper if I have had carbs for lunch. I think I have probably eaten rice once in 5 weeks, and potatoes about 5 times. My carbs are usually my porridge and 2 small pieces of wholemeal bread at lunch or a pitta bread.
