How do i approach CC after a VLCD???

#1
Hi everyone,
I'm just finished my refeed week after 12 weeks of lipotrim total food replacement (lost 52lbs :)) Have decided calorie counting is the way forward for me to lose my last stone and a half(ish) and maintain. But i'm struggling to get the 1200 calorie intake recommended by an online calculator. Having lived for the last 3 months on 425 calories a day (in nutritionally balanced shakes) i don't know if i should try to aim for the 1200 straight away or slowly increase my calorie intake over a few days?? I'm afraid that by eating that many calories a day i'll just put weight on.
Has anybody else on here changed to CC after doing a Very Low Calorie Diet? How did you approach it?
Thanks for any help. :)

I would definitely slowly increase your calories. After losing so much weight in such a short space of time you will be very vulnerable to gaining weight. I think it's 5 days for every 1lb that you have lost (i was reading this only the other day and can't find the study!), which you are susceptible to gaining it back.

I would increase it by 100 a week, i have no clue about these things though!!
