I think this is an excellent plan and if it is okay would you mind if I use it as a guideline.

Hey hun,
Food looks great. TBH I would wait a little while before having philly (that is just my personal opinion).
Your allowed plain yoghurt type things or lf fromage frais from day three.
As for the mince just use a normal amount! Are you using a sauce or making from scratch?

The rest of it looks fine :) But be careful with the snacking- don't just for the sake of it!




Here is the refeed sheet.

Refeed Programme

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).

You may not have bread, grains (rice) or pasta until Day 4.
Fruit should wait until Day 4 at the earliest (later if you have carbohydrate problems).

You may have milk in tea/coffee.

At lunchtime or evening meal time 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. 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
Cucumber
Cress
Watercress
Tomatoes
Mushrooms
Onions
Peppers
Bean sprouts
Celery dressed with a little lemon juice or wine vinegar
Or if you prefer, a moderate serving (2 heaped table spoons - no more)of some cooked vegetables.

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 yogurt or very low fat fromage frais and a sprinkle of herbs.



Day 4-7

A Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus:

Up to 3 serving of fruit (if you suffer from the 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 sauces - e.g. lean mince with low fat bolognese sauce

Medium baking potato or 6 small new 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).

Sample menu for days 4 to 7.....


Sample 1

Breakfast: Lipotrim serving.

Lunch: Fish fillet (any type - cod, salmon etc), serving of potatoes ( 1 medium jacket or 6 new potatoes or a serving-spoon mash - no added fat) Yogurt ( low fat).

Diner: 4-6 ozs chicken (no skin), jacket potato, salad. Fruit (if appropriate) or low fat dessert.

Evening: Sandwich (no spread of any sort), consisting of: pickles, fat-free mayonnaise, salad/carrot, slice cold meat (low fat).

Snack 1 or 2 pieces of fruit (evening, if appropriate)




Sample 2

Breakfast: Lipotrim serving

Lunch: Sandwich (no spread) - any low fat filling, e.g. tuna. Bowl of salad. 2 pieces of fruit (if appropriate) or yoghurt.

Dinner: Spaghetti Bolognese, consisting of drained lean mince, low fat sauce, 4 ounces cooked spaghetti or rice, serving spoon of vegetables. Low fat dessert.

Snack or Evening: Tub of very low fat fromage frais, flavoured to suit with either slices of fruit or low fat jelly crystals for a sweet option or herbs and spices with added crunchy vegetable, for a savoury snack.

ah thanks :)
i just thought of philadelphia as it already had the herbs in it, maybe il just buy lf fromage frais and add the herbs, i have emailed lipotrim
i just wrote down the snacks to show what i would have but i won't use them unless needed :)
i was thinkin of making the sauce from scratch, some tinned tomatoes, maybe a little tomato paste, herbs, maybe garlic and some onions and carrots and peppers, what do you think?

I have noticed some people have had philly for refeed. See what lipotrim says!
Glad you have planned so well- will definitely help you to keep the weight off.
As for the sauce no idea sorry hun. I really can't cook so always use jarred sauce!!! Most of them you add 500g of mince for about 4 portions I think!
Good luck x

I think that plan looks fine hon .. it's exciting looking forward to eating again isn't it? :)
Just a couple of little things - Personally I wouldn't have the phili though I know people have and (again personally) I wouldn't have the salmon as it's an oily fish and the refeed sheet stipulates white fish ...
HOWEVER having said that I am rather anal about doing things completely by the book (mainly so that I can't blame myself if things don't go the way I want them to ;)) - others have had the things mentioned and others and been fine.

Also - If I were you I'd invest in some really good (ie unfortunately, expensive!) balsamic vinegar. It's the one dressing you can have and if you get a good one it's really nice and I still use it now instead of other dressings, on salads and veggies, 2 years later! I usually pay about £6.99 for tesco finest but recently bit the bullet and paid £13.99 for a bottle and it's REALLY nice! ... just a thought.

Best of luck with it hon :) xx

Well good luck whatever you decide. It can be a bit of a struggle finding what works best for us after TFR but if we really want to keep off what we've lost and even lose a bit more it has to be done! :) xx

I agree re sticking 100% to the refeed sheet. Like Jan, I recommend the balsamic. A bottle will last ages too. I never use an oil dressing now, just a dash of balsamic and a sprinkle of fresh pepper and maybe a squeeze of lemon.
