    Hi everyone, i did the diet a few months ago and did quite well, which spurned my wife on to do it.
    She only wanted to lose a stone but lost 12lb in wk1, she wants to re-feed week 2 but the chemist won't let her, saying you have to be on it for 2 weeks minimum.
    Is this correct? or is the chemist trying it on?

    Please dont get me wrong, but i dont really see why your wife would want to do LT when only wanting to loose 1 stone :rolleyes: Most people that doe this have more than that to loose.

    Maybe the maintenance programme would have been a better choice. Or another diet like sw or ww.

    I am not sure what the minimum is on LT sorry.

    The first lot of weight you loose is mainly water its only when you hit ketosis when you burn fat, so if she starts refeed after only one week she'll probably put it all back on. (mind you I wish I only needed to do it for one week!!)

    Florida girl is right, she wouldnt have lost any body fat in week 1, and would probably just put it all back on the following week as the glycogen levels went back to their normal levels.

    I'm struggling to see why a chemist would let her do it to only lose a stone :confused: i thought you had to be 3 stone overweight.

    she may only lose 2lb second week anyway, so i'd say go with the chemist - she needs to eat sensibly, very low carb in order to not put it all straight back on i believe.

    I think you can start lipotrim as long as your bmi is over 25, but not 100% sure.
