    Hi Guys,

    I plan to stay on TFR for about another 3 weeks and then refeed for 2 weeks and then maintain. I just have a couple of questions...

    When refeeding for 2 weeks do you do each day twice or complete days 1 to 7 and then start at day 1 again on the 2nd week?

    When i start maintaining I was wondering how many calories a day should I stick to. I was thinking if I still want to lose a few lbs then I should have 1200 a day and when I'm happy with my weight would 2000 be enough or too much?

    All advice appreciated, I plan on using my fitness pal to count the calories.

    Thanks in advance :jelous:

    Usually people doing 2 weeks of refeed do days 1-7 and then repeat days 4-7 and do the same for the remaining few days.

    There are several sites where you can calculate your BMR (basal metabolic rate (I think) ) which tells you how many calories you need to sts or lose weight based on your height, weight, age, sex and activity. I'll have a look and come back with a link or two if noone else has given you one (if you'll pardon the expression ;)) in the meantime xx

    Wow Mary, your pictures are amazing. Very motivating! i would love to stick with this until I got to 11 stone but I'm finding it really tough at the moment, Will see how the next few weeks go, it really is one day at a time!
