S: 18st0lb C: 14st2lb G: 14st0lb Loss: 3st12lb(21.43%)
Ok, so i've not got to the point of starting yet, likely to be feb/ march as have some other things to deal with first and want to make sure i'm totally focused before starting else bound to get it wrong. my aim is to got from 17st 11 to around 14. Im more worried about what happens when you get to that point ( not claiming that the first bits going to be easy, but i have been told the first week is the hard bit), i have looked at the refeed section but cant seem to find a definitive section on what/how you start to eat and to what sort of level. any help would be useful before i go charging in!!

Hi Mark and welcome. When it comes for the time for you to refeed then your chemist should give you a refeed sheet with all the info on it. You need to stick to it to the letter. In a nut shell, day 1 2 shakes 1 meal, day 2 1 shake 2 meals, day 3 as day 2 + a potato, day 4 to 7 as day 2 + up to 3 servings of fruit, up to 2 slices of bread, 1 potato, skimmed milk products. After day 7 you can stick to days 4-7 for as long as necessary but using maintenance formulas rather than LT shakes.

Hope that was what you were after and it helps.

Meant to say, meal consists of skinless, boneless chicken, turkey or white fish, 4-6oz and small bowl of salad or 2 heaped tablespoons of cooked green veggies.

Heya (waves)

I am on day 6 of LT and yes its been hard but it gets easier.

I think the refeed is more about changing the way you eat as in healthy smaller meals not snacking on high fat sugar things, its more about changing the way and what you eat i think ??
I am looking forward to skinless chicken and salad in a few months, hope to stick this out till i reach target.

Good luck for your start !! :)

Hi Mark

Hope this helps


Follow exactly - do not add extras and, more importantly, do not miss out any steps. You may have milk in your tea and coffee, if required, and you can now have diet drinks again. Avoid fruit juices (simple sugars) until the end of the week. No alcohol. Try to drink plenty of water. Most people do not drink adequate water and now you are in a habit, stick with it. You should drink at least 2 litres per day.

Day 1

Have 2 Lipotrim servings and one meal, as follows (men continue to have 2 servings as before, while women take 1 less serving of Lipotrim).

At lunchtime or evening mealtime you may have some skinless boneless chicken breast or white fish fillet, or some skinless turkey (about 4/6ozs). The fish or chicken may be steamed, microwaved, baked or cooked with a little water in a non-stick pan. Season with salt and pepper. Or you may have tuna fish in water or brine (drained). Vegetarians may use tofu or quorn.

You may also have either a moderate serving of salad (small breakfast bowl) from any of the following: lettuce, onions, peppers, beansprouts, celery dressed with a little lemon or lime juice or wine vinegar (try balsamic vinegar), or if you prefer, a moderate serving (2 heaped table spoons - no more) of some cooked green vegetables. You may not have bread, grains (rice) or pasta until day 4, and fruit should wait until day 4 at the earliest (later if you have carbohydrate problems).

Day 2

You will have only 1 Lipotrim serving and 2 meals as described for Day 1.

Day 3

Same as day 2, but you may also have - at one meal only - an 8 ounce potato, plain boiled, mashed or baked, but with no addition of any fat. You may like to top with some skimmed milk, plain yoghurt or very low fat fromage frais and a sprinkle of herbs.

Days 4-7

Each day have a Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus..............

  • Up to 3 servings of fruit (if you suffer from an insulin resistance problem, then eat these late in the day and do not snack on them during the day).
  • Up to 2 slices of bread or 1 pita or 1 roll or 1 bagel (without fatty spread).
  • Any vegetables you want except avocado, 1 or 2 servings with your meals (2 tablespoons per serving).
  • Any of the skimmed milk products.
  • Fish fillet (any size) or 6 ounces of chicken or turkey, as described before, or one tin of tuna in water or brine, drained. Vegetarians may use tofu, textured vegetable protein (TVP) or quorn.
  • Lean meat with all visible fat trimmed off.
  • Low fat recipes prepared with low fat sources - e.g. lean mince with tomato Bolognese sauce.
  • Medium baking potato or 6 small potatoes or one serving of instant mashed potatoes (the kind with no added fat - read the label). Instead of potato, you may have 4ozs of rice or pasta (cooked weight).

This schedule may be continued for several weeks - especially if you have lost a lot of weight - 5/6 stones or more - as you will need time to adjust to a different eating behaviour and quantities. Check your weight every week; if it is going up, then action must be taken to address the types and quantities of foods eaten. The maintenance food products are advised during this time to add extra control whilst adjusting to your new eating behaviour.

The main point to understand in following the plan is not to have added fat in your food or in it's preparation.

There is more than adequate fat for daily requirements naturally occurring in a diet chosen from a wide range of foods. There is no benefit to adding fat in preparation - only to add weight back on.
