    Hi all,

    I think this week is going to be my last week on TFR or maybe the week after depending on weight loss results next Tuesday. I ony want to refeed for a short time before going back on TFR.

    Therefore i am going to be refeeding and i am a little worried because i am a vegetarian. Is it possible to refeed being a vege, are there any fellow vegetarians who have succesfully followed the refeed and maintenance who can help me? :confused:

    Many thanks

    Sorry I cant help, but I am sure there will be others who can. The only thing I can recommend to use is quorn, I know that is permitted, otherwise, sorry I cant help you.

    I dont know anything about tofu either, never had it.

    Quorn mince just cooks easily in any sauces, just use it like a bolognaise mixed with your sauces etc, it cooks really quickly.

    Thanks Kered, i do use Quorn mince quite alot anyway as i love spagetti bol. But i cant have any sauces on my first day can i? And so im a bit concerned about what to eat on my first couple of days. I think i will buy some tofu tomorrow and try that.

    Oh I see what you mean, no you wont have sauces the first few days, but have a look at the packets instructions, I am sure you could just fry it with a little frylite spray and even add a mushroom or two, maybe a little onion for flavouring.

    Just been having a nosey on the Quorn website and comparing the mince to the bangers.

    Mince

    The bangers actually have less calories and carbs so do you think i wil be ok to have them also?

    Wow the Quorn website is really good and i have worked out i can use a few of the quorn products to refeed.

    Here is my day 1 (which starts tomorrow)

    Mon 20/4/09

    Breakfast = Lipotrim vanilla shake (142cal)

    Lunch = Lipotrim Strawberry shake (142cal)

    Dinner = 2 x Quorn sausages (57 cal each)
    small breakfast bowl salad (50 cals)
    Balsamic vinegar 3 tsp (15 cals)

    Total Cals for the day = 463 cals

    Does this seem ok?
