Very confusing info on maintenance products

#1
Just got samples of all the maintenance products and reading the leaflets enclosed (most of the pages - list of pharmacies.. yawnnnnn) I see no sense whasoever.

For example they say you can have the maintenance products before the meal or with the meal or in between meals - what meals? What are suitable meals to have on refeed week - no info there.

Then there are tables with calories listed - for example it says:

"Choc Whip per 100g powder - 509 kcal
Choc Whip per 295g serving - 229 kcl"

That makes no sense to me whatsoever as the sachet of this product clearly says 45g so telling me the calories per 100g powder or per 295g serving - what use is it to me?

The same with all other products - I thought maybe they consider extra calories as milk is added to choc whip but then I saw the orange desert (which mixes with water only) which says 45g on the sachet:

Per 100g powder - 321 kcal
Per 345g serving - 144 kcal

What am I missing here?

But if you add the water, you make the product heavier. So 345g will be water and orange desert. Probably about 1/3 desert, rest calorie free water :)

Or to put it another way.

45g of desert is 144 calories
300g of water is 0 calories

Total weight 345g = 144 calories.

Yup that is fine - what about the chocolate thingy then?

"Choc Whip per 100g powder - 509 kcal
Choc Whip per 295g serving - 229 kcl"

45 gram powder per sachet and 300ml milk makes 295 gram serving?

They could make a bit of an effort and play with the figures as they are on the sachets not give values per 100g powder...

Yeah, I know 45 g is nealry half of 100g byt still.....

the choc whip then seems to me like its 45g of powder and 250g of water or milk or whatever which makes up 295g

Still - the whole "leaflet" was not informative at all.

It says nothing as to what should/should not be eaten on refeeed and maintenance at all....

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuu
