To refeed or not to Refeed?


My husband = My hero
Morning everyone,

I know its a few weeks away but... my birthday is the 22nd March, and so im doing this diet up til then...

A meal is booked for me and my everyone to go to on the 23rd march,

and i REALLLLYYYY want to loose as much as possible before then,

so much so im thinking of not refeeding and just going to the meal eating what i want and refeeding the day after and all that week...

is this a bad idea? and will i instantly put 2 stone back on?

or should i refeed from say 3 days before and hope for the best by being reallly sensible??

i wouldnt ask only i want to get as close as possible to 14st for my 21st..

any suggestions on how i can get round this? :sigh:

If i was in your position i would start the refeed on your birthday and get as much weight off as poss!! - try to avoid carbs and just enjoy yourself :D
I am in total agreement with Summer, just watch what you eat at your meal (lots of protein). It is so so hard trying to get back into this diet. I have struggled for the last few weeks trying to get back on track.
yeah if you feel you will struggle to get abck on it do as summer said

lol tell me about it!

im scared that as soon as i eat i will put it all back on/1 xx
well i ate admitedly it wasnt a full meal but i still managed to lose 2 lb and get back on the diet - you do get a bad tummy ache tho xx

be careful you don't make yourself ill by eating too much when your body has not been re-adjusted. I did refeed at Xmas for a similar reason and was on day 4 of the refeed when I went for a meal. I recall seeing a post from someone who ate a meal without doing the refeed and they said they felt so ill it was horrible. Bear in mind that you have had no food at all for quite some time and your stomach needs to adjust, its unlikely you would be able to eat a full meal anyway.

Take Care

Personally I would refeed for a week to prevent to much glycogen and water rebuilding itself.. and i think you still lose weight on the refeed programme
