    I'll be refeeding in 11 days, I'm both anxious and excited to be eating again. I've been reading and studying the refeed sheet over and over again, but I'm a litte confused with some of the instructions.

    Day 1 -
    Breakfast:
    (Fully understandable)

    Lunch:
    Do they mean 1 tin or 4-6ozs?

    Skimmed or semi-skimmed or whole?

    Day 2 -Fully understandable

    Day 3 -
    How can I get a potato to weigh 8 ounces exactly? I'd be at the supermarket all day. No addition of fat, does this include tuna?


    What kind of herbs?

    Days 4-7 :

    Each day have...

    • up to 3 small servings of fruit what kind of fruit?

    • Up to 2 slices of bread or 1 pita or 1 bagel (without fatty spread) So when it comes to sliced bread, in 1 whole day I'm only allowed 2 slices? and what kind of fatty spreads is not allowed? is butter not allowed even if it's a light, low calorie version?

    • any of te skimmed milk products What are these products?

    In the example menu it says that I can have a sandwhich as an evening meal in brackets it says

    (no spread of any sort) What are these spreads?

    When can I stop having LT shakes for breakfast and start having cereal or toast or eggs?

    Fromage Frais are practically non existant as far as I'm concerned around here. I can't find any. Are weight watchers yoghurts allowed instead?

    By heck love that's a lot of questions!!!! Mind you, I had lots myself and rang the helpline for advice. If no-one can help you on here then try them.

    Tuna - I suspect a drained tin will be about 4-6oz

    Milk - personally I'd go for skimmed as it is lower in fat, although I still can't face it in mine yet and I used to love a milky tea!

    Potato - 8oz is a big 'un, try 2 small if that helps and it doesn't have to be exactly 8oz

    Herbs - whatever you fancy!

    Fruit - pears have the lowest GI values if that helps.

    Spreads - I think they mean margarine, butter, etc best to avoid all of them for at least a fortnight if not longer, you will get used to it. You could try a very low fat mayo for savoury sandwiches

    Skimmed milk products - yoghurts (WW are very yummy), fromage fraise

    Breakfasts - I'd wait a bit before introducing them - at least avoid for the first 2 weeks and be careful with cereals as even "healthy" ones have been shown to have high levels of salt and sugar - check out the latest Which report about them

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.

    xx

    Ooo thank you, this has really helped.

    I'm going to be following refeed for 2 weeks as I've lost 5 stones. Better to refeed for longer when you've lost a lot. So cereals and stuff will wait I guess. Oh and I know exactly which ones to get. Been doing my research :D

    My pleasure sweetie and well done for doing the research. I was surprised to see Special K did badly in the report! I nice breakfast would be a dippy egg and soldiers although I never have time myself!!!!


    Good luck babe, you have done amazingly well and deserve this success, for one so young you have always talked a lot of sense and have shown determination and commitment. Well done.

    Hi Yasmine, I find it best to keep off cereals altogether as I always found myself craving more carbs by mid morning!!! Some very lean grilled bacon with grilled toms/mushrooms, or boiled/poached/scrambled eggs with once small slice wholemeal toast kept me going through to lunch as I feel protein staves off hunger far more effectively.

    I know I should avoid cereal in the beginning, but staying away from it is something I just can't do I'm afraid ^_^''. If I do that, I'll end up binging on it if I deprive myself of it. I used to have cereal and it would last me until around 3-4pm. Very unhealthy I know :(.

    I'm not too fond of fry ups or stuff like that in the morning. I don't really like heavy breakies, but I might give it a go anyway. Good to try something new :D

    I don't have much time in the morning, so I usually go for the cereal.

    Thanks for the help though
