Moving up the plans, how exciting! Yep 1000a to 1200 is absolutely fine. Not sure if its still the same but when I was doing it 1000b was aimed at those who were going down the plans or who had opted to do 1000 long term.
Good luck!

Thanks Marissa! :) xxx

I'm looking at the recipes now and planning what I'm going to have tomorrow. For those who did 1200, did you just follow the recipes from the book for 2 week? Is it okay to have dinners from 1000 step, but altering the calories i.e. less rice/chicken? Thanks x

I'd begun to exercise quite a bit when I hit 1200 so I had a few days where I had a 1000 meal dinner instead. However I made sure I kept my net calorie intake below 1200. I was using a calorie counter but that stage so knew I was safe with the numbers - the carb/fat/protein % did work out a bit different but within a healthy boundary for me.

Is it that you don't like the 1200 dinners?
I don't mind the recipes, just have become a bit accustomed to my 1000 dinners :) I was meant to start today but with the snow, it doesn't look like I'll be able to venture out. Will start when I've stocked up on ingredients.
Thanks x

Fair enough. See how you get on. You may feel the same about 1500 when you've had two weeks on 1200! :) 1200 will reintroduce more foods to you. Actually that said, I really liked the 1000 dinners as they were similar to what I'd normally eat so know what you mean.

Hey Well done Shanny, only 5lb left to go. I lost 6lb in 3 weeks on the 1200 plan. Be prepared for your body to adjust though as the first week on 1200 I only lost 1lb then 2lb the second week then 3lb the 3rd week. So it definatley works hun xx.

ive just come to the end of my 2 weeks on 1200, managed to lose my last 5lb to get to goal on it :D
you cant be in ketosis on 1200 plan as your intake of carbs is now higher, i havent been in ketosis since being on the 810 plan due to taking meds for colds,coughs etc but i coped well with it
best of luck for your last 5lbs :D

I can't imagine I would have been in ketosis as Mandy says above the carb intake is to high but the calorie intake is still low enough to lose weight on it. Mandy a big congrats on getting to goal xx.
