    Just reading through some of the treads can anyone tell me what TFR means. Also can you tell me how refeed works and how long you need to do it for.. Im no where near refeed yet but just curious.

    Cheers

    TFR = Total food replacement.

    Lipotrim recommend that you do a refeed for 14 days to benefit the most and to stop the glycogen levels filling up over quickly.
    There is a sticky at the top that shows you the refeed section.

    Good luck on lipotrim.

    [FONT=Arial,sans-serif]The plan applies to both men and women[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial,sans-serif]Follow exactly - do not add extras and, more importantly, do not miss out any steps. You may have milk in your tea and coffee, if required, and you can now have diet drinks again. Avoid fruit juices (simple sugars) until the end of the week. No alcohol. Try to drink plenty of water. Most people do not drink adequate water and now you are in a habit, stick with it. At least 2 litres per day.[/FONT]
    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).
    At lunchtime or evening mealtime you may have some skinless boneless chicken breast or white fish fillet, or some skinless turkey (about 406ozs). The fish or chicken may be steamed, microwaved, baked or cooked with a little water in a non-stick pan. Season with salt and pepper. 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, onions, peppers, beansprouts, celery dressed with a little lemon or lime juice or wine vinegar (try balsamic vinegar), or if you prefer, a moderate serving (2 heaped table spoons - no more) of some cooked green vegetables. You may not have bread, grains (rice) or pasta until day 4, and fruit should wait until day 4 at the earliest (later if you have carbohydrate problems).

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

    Days 4-7
    each day have a Lipotrim serving for your breakfast plus..............

    • Up to 3 servings of fruit (if you suffer from an 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 sources - e.g. lean mince with tomato Bolognese sauce.
    • Medium baking potato or 6 small 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).
    This schedule may be continued for several weeks - especially if you have lost a lot of weight - 5/6 stones or more - as you will need time to adjust to a different eating behaviour and quantities. Check your weight every week at the Pharmacy; if it is going up, then action must be taken to address the types and quantities of foods eaten. The maintenance food products are advised during this time to add extra control whilst adjusting to your new eating behaviour.
    The main point to understand in following the plan is not to have added fat in your food or in it's preparation.
    There is more than adequate fat for daily requirements naturally occuring in a diet chosen from a wide range of foods. There is no benefit to adding fat in preparation - only to add weight back on.

    Thanks its my first weigh in tomorrow, and im really scared that im only going to have a small loss, and I think that will dishearten me to continue then. If i did decide not to continue would I still have to do the refeed?

    just feeling a little doubtful today

    If you packed in after only 1 week, the weight would definitely just go straight back on.

    Try and think positive because if you have been 100% on the diet, you should have an excellent loss when you go tomorrow to get weighed, that should give you a great boost and plenty of motivation for week 2.

    Good luck for your weigh in tomorrow.
