    Well the time has finally come where I have to start eating again, I am 10lb off goal but want to lose that on this new journey (if thats possible). I plan to refeed then follow ww to drop those last few pounds and then maintain.
    I had a long chat with my pharmacist last week and she believes that the lt refeed lets you eat carbs way too quick so i am trying a mixture of lt and w8 refeed.
    So day 1 today,
    Breakfast - milkshake
    Lunch - Bar
    Dinner - I made a spanish omlette with onion mushrooms and peppers and let me tell you it was delish. :eatdrink023: Hopefully this will keep me in ketosis and slowly get me used to carbs again.

    I will keep you all informed of my progress and weight loss/gain on this different regime xxx

    Hi tara I am using the normal lt shakes but actually following the w8 maitenence programme as it reintroduces carbs alot slower so your body has time to adjust. Yes I am really enjoying eating again but just really scared of putting the weight back on. xx

    You will be fine, especially introducing the carbs really slowly, but it is scary. I'm planning to reintroduce mine more slowly than LT refeed, just not quite decided how I am doing it yet.

    Keep posting on here, I want to know what you are having and how it feels, I am stalking you as you are leading the way x

    Thanks to Carolanski for this off W8

    I think your pharmacist is very sensible - W8 reintroduces carbs very slowly and encourages you to eat low-GI long term, so complex carbs like brown rice, wholemeal everything, beans/pulses - not straight back to potatoes, pasta and white bread

    There are 3 phases to maintenance - which you follow for three weeks at a time.

    Phase 1 -
    3 weeks

    3 packs (on W8 we normally eat 4 a day - so you might need to go down to 2) and 1 meal, up to 1/2 pint skimmed milk everyday:

    5oz protein - any of the following
    Chicken breast - no skin, Turkey, Ham, Fish - fresh, tinned (in brine/water) or frozen, Shellfish, Eggs, Back bacon, Quorn, Tofu, Plain Cottage cheese, Lean Mince, Lean Pork, Lamb,

    Steamed veg/ salad - max. 2 handfuls

    Broccoli, Alfalfa, Peppers, Chicory, Radishes,Cucumber, Bamboo Shoots, Cauli, Leeks, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach, Celery, Cabbage, Asparagus, Fennel, Pak Choi, Courgetts, Marrow, Garlic, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Green Beans, Mangetout, Beetroot, Sweet potato, Carrots

    1 piece/ small handful fruit:
    Apple, Blackberries, Cherries, grapefruit, grapes, Kiwi, Lemon (!), Lychee, Peach, Pear, Plums, Raspberries, Blueberries, Satsuma, strawberries, Tangerine

    Unlimited herbs and spices

    Alcohol - one small measure twice a week only

    PHASE 3: 3 weeks

    1 pack plus balanced meals - try to have 2 Carb-free days per week

    5% fast releasing carbs - pots/pasta etc, Try to keep high carb veg to a minimum (potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, parsnip, squashes)
    25% slow releasing carbs - cereals/grains, brown rice, wholemeal bread, beans/pulses etc
    40% low carb veg - everything off previous list plus seaweed (!), jicama (?), spring onions, aubergine, avocado, artichoke, okra, celeriac, turnip. water chesnuts, pumpkin
