    On day 2 aren't we supposed to replace a shake with another meal? Have I got that wrong or is this your own version of the menu?

    I think cos you're going away so soon after I would have the 2 meals a day so my body got used to eating 3 meals a day. You can do what feels right for you though.

    I'm going shopping on saturday for all my bits. Your menu looks really good though and I will be pinching your idea for tuna and boiled egg sald too, yummy!!

    When people cook a chicken breast and use fromage frais and herbs, do they cover the breast with it then put it in the oven? Have never done this before so just wanted to check it out.

    Thanks Tanya.

    Also for my first meal I was going to do a chicken breast, dry fried for a few minutes each side to seal it then put in the oven with salt and pepper on. Do you think cooking it that way will be all right cos I'm not adding any fat whatsoever? Hope so cos I'm really looking forward to it.

    Can't believe our hols are so close now and that we are actually refeeding so soon, can you?

    I cant see why that would be a problem bev - aslong as were not adding anything we shouldnt be then i guess its ok to do :) Just be careful it dont stick to the pan! :giggle:

    I cant believe it either! You are refeeding sat right? So your going shopping on the day? Im tempted to do that but im not sure i can contain my excitement! :rotflmao:

    It's going to be weird asking for only 7 shakes in the chemist on saturday too. I might pick up a few maintenance products whilst there too, just in case I want some of them.

    I'm shopping saturday so at least my salad stuff will be nice and fresh. It's going to be so weird picking up stuff for myself, these last 24 weeks all I've looked at is stuff for hubby and daughter! Mind you I have already stocked up on chicken breasts and tuna which I will be living on this first week.

    I only have 18 more shakes to drink until I eat my first meal. That sounds so good!!

    i think on day six youve written down to have a drink..i really wouldnt until youve finished refeeding...can be dangerous and because your body isnt used to it, you may get light headed really quick and you dont want to get sick.

    im going on what happened when a friend on here refed last year (when i did lt before) and was majorly ill so i really wouldnt advise it

    sorry to put a dampner on it..just leave it a bit til youve finished the refeed xxx

    Sounds about right, as long as you have one shake and maybe a tuna salad at the lunch. Balsamic vinegar is JUST heavenly...I used to always have low-fat salad cream before LT...not any more. Also, tried FOUR Tescos and Asda's and can't blooming find ANY low-fat natural fromage frais to make my potato salad...only the kiddy fruity ones!!!!! :flamingmad: By the by, I love adding some chilli flakes to the potato salad......mmmmm!!! How many sleeps left???:giggle:

    Well done

    Its great to see you both so excited about refeed . Its actually infectious.:D. Managed to get tesco light option fromage frais today (couldnt get a light one here for ages.) will be trying your chicken breast recipe before the week is out summer. Well done for sticking it out to the bitter end girls. With that willpower I know you will have no problem on refeed .

    Id push salmon back from day 3 to day 4 on that plan personally as its quite an oily fish

    But the main thing is i would extend it out from the 7 days to however many you have before your holiday, think it says ten days?

    I would repeat day one and two and make them your first 4 days or repeat day 1 and 3

    would be like

    day 1 - 22nd
    day 1 - 23rd
    day 2 - 24th
    day 3 - 25th
    day 3 - 26th
    day 4 - 27th
    day 5 - 28th
    day 6 - 29th
    day 7 - 30th

    If that helps just to spread it out and intoduce you a little more gradualy

    You're right Tanya, I only have 12 shakes left to go. What was I thinking!!

    I had 3 lots of the free samples delivered so will give them a whirl when I need to. Can't wait to try the caramel bar.

    Slimming World, Dietchef, Lipotrim - now maintaining (I hope!).
    FF has a dead long date - the one I got on sat has 29/6 on it. I use one every few days so don't know how long it would last once open - they say use within 3 days usually but I've had it longer than that.

    Just a couple of things if you don't mind me saying....

    Go easy on the salt - Personally I never add it to anything, things taste much more salty than I remember them - ham etc. Also it can influence water retention. Now probably the amount you're talking about cooking with wouldn't do that - I wouldn't be willing to take the chance but it's obviously entirely up to you. (but then I'm a whimp and was terrified of the effect ANYTHING might have after such an extreme diet!) I'm more concerned that you don't spoil the taste of your first REAL meal. Couldn't you add the salt at the table if you felt it needed it?

    Also - you don't need the water you know ... just put the chicken breast in tin foil to keep all the moisture in and don't do it for more than 20 mins. there's probably nothing wrong with adding the water, I'd just be afraid it might take away some of the taste ..... ?

    When I do mine with herbs & from frais I put the herbs on the chicken and then a large dessertspoonful of ff which I spread over the top, wrap in tinfoil & bake for 20 mins (190 degrees)

    DEFFO have 2 meals from day 2!!

    You've got salt again with salmon on day 3 AND in the pots ..... I wouldn't do it kid - you shouldn't add it in cooking as a matter of course - it's just not good for you, only at the table and then only if you really need it. Sorry if I sound as if I'm preaching but you don't need it - If you can I'd take this opportunity to get out of the habit - that's all it is. When I did Carol Vordeman years ago I REALLY missed salt at first but then got used to not having it. You can really taste the food then, please at least try it ....... ?

    I'm with Adam on the salmon thing too ... just in case ..

    Your egg & tuna salad sounds YUMMY!!! Actually - I haven't had any eggs yet .... hmmmmm ...

    Sorry but I wouldn't be having the alcohol that quickly either - up to you of course ...

    And finally ... (at last she says .... go away and enjoy your holiday and stop picking on me! ;) ) .... day 7 seems to be the only day you have carbs twice .... ? To refeed properly you should really have 2 servings a day from day 4. I understand that you may not want to - if you want to continue to lose leave it as it is - if you want to get your body used to food properly again before your hol (but probably sts) then if I were you I'd follow the plan 100% .... that worked for me.

    Sorry if this is a bit more than you bargained for sweetie ... but you did aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarsk ;) xxx

    Not at all jan - you are very helpful! I will indeed stay off the salt - its just i always cook with it and think i need it to taste but i will for defo not add it to my first meal and see how it goes!!

    As for cooking chicken - im guna try it in the tin foil instead of the water then. Do i just place it on a baking sheet yeah and then in the oven?

    The carb thing - im not planning on over doing carbs as i know this was the route of my problems before LT which is why i have been so cautious with it in my menus! :( damn things! lol But i will do my menu again tomorrow including two meals from day 2 - although that is very scary! and 2 portions of carbs from day 4 - i mean i dont have to eat it all if i feel full now do i!?

    Thanks jan :) xxx
