    this is the re-feed info copied from one of Summergurl's previous posts

    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:
    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.

    Lipotrim,now maintaining!
    Usually people will refeed for 1 week, but Lipotrim recommend that if you have lost 5/6 stones or more that you refeed for longer. Refeeding allows you to adjust back to eating without regaining some of the weight that has just been lost, so you can refeed for much longer until you feel comfortable

    When I did it first time round I re-feed for 3 weeks and plan to again this time. I did each day for 3 days if that makes sense so for the first 3 days I did day 1 and so on...
