    Hi, im sure this has been asked before but i cant find the answer, Im wondering if I switch from Lipotrim to Atkins do I need to do the refeed first? not sure how it would work with already being in ketosis and the lipotrim guidlines say if you dont do the refeed you may start putting all your weight back on so its a bit confusing. Im hoping one of you will have done it and can tell me quicker than surfing the net . Thanks :)

    I'll be doing this in a month, and deffo not refeeding as per lipotrim Daisy, because I don't want to lose my lovely ketosis. I'm quite happy to put on a few pounds rather than go through the agony of that first week feeling crap again!

    Someone will come along with the official line soon (or if you post on the LT forum, Nick will know) ;) but this is your diet, manage it as you please! :D

    Thanks Fisherman that sounds very encouraging, I have been reading up on Atkins and it does seem to make sense after a tfr plan. Good luck with the rest of your journey. :)

    Ah fisherman, you're the very man I need. I'll be torturing you with questions in a couple of weeks. :D

    In fact, let me start now - did you do any carbs at all first week? If so, how much per day? I assume much less than 20g? And are you eating proper sized meals or just the 4oz servings of chicken/fish etc they recommend when refeeding?

    I have this vision of stopping TFR one day and sitting down to half a cow's worth of steak the next. Then I wake up and something tells me that just isn't the way it's gonna be. I'd appreciate blow-by-blow specifics if you had time. :)

    Oops, sorry for totally hijacking your thread Daisy - I get over-excited at the thought of actually eating again! ;)

    When do you plan to change over?

    tbh just swapped straight over to induction aiming for sub 20 carbs with most of that coming from veg, keeping up the 3+ litres of water a day and the great MIM to keep my fiber intake up i am not saying this is the right way to do it just working for me atm
