Hey everyone! I am a newbie to LT (day 8) and just wanted to pick the brains of all you more experienced LT'ers. Can't help wondering about what happens to your metabolism when you have been following a VLCD for several weeks. Some of my sceptical friends have told me it slows down so much that when you do eventually start to eat food again, your body just clings on to it and as your metabolism is now really slow, you can barely eat anything at all without putting on weight. I'm trying not to think about that yet and just want to concentrate on GETTING THERE!!!!! Would be grateful for any comments though. Cheers.
