    I lost 3 stone on LL & found it great. I do think though that you have to do the RTM as it's so much harder when foods introduced. It's soooo easy to think "that bit of cake won't hurt" trouble is it leads to other bits of cake! I thought I would be able to carry on losing weight with RTM but I'm not but I am keeping it in control. It's easy to forget the rules if you come off foundation & left to your own devices.

    Personally, when I started the diet last January, I felt RTM was going to be the most difficult part. I said that all the way through the diet. The diet was easy - thanks to Ketosis.

    RTM is indeed a challenge, and the most critical key to success. I believed that back then and having just completed it 3 weeks ago, I believe that still to be true.

    I have never understood those before me who did the diet and then said they wanted to save money so they were skipping RTM. Why make the initial inviestment - in blood, sweat and tears, emotional ups and downs, joys and sorrows - just to throw it all in the bin at the end?? When its most important?? <shrugs> never have understood that.

    But the challenge is what made it interesting, scary, exciting adn rewarding. I thought develop/foundation were emotional - well, so was RTM!!

    But what a joy to see you managing skills develop, and prove they are working when you step on the scale each week.

    I am a staunch supporter of RTM. It worked for me. And nearly 4 months after intorducing the first bit of food - I still weigh what I did when I ended the diet - and that, for me is proof positive this diet has been the most successful ever.

    On WW or SW, I would have already begun packing it back on by now, as has been my past record.
