    Hi, I have just weighed myself (sneak preview before monday) and I'm 3lb away from target, my BMI is now 25. :)

    What I'd like to know from anyone doing refeed or planning on starting soon is at what point do you start?
    Do you wait till you've reached target or when you're a few pounds away?
    Or do you go below target to allow for any gain on refeed? I'm confused! :confused:

    I personally would wait until you reach target (although i havent done refeed... my friend has) then if you go slightly below you can play with the amounts of food you are eating to stabalize... i would much rather that then not loose those all important few lbs xx well done you for getting where you are xxx

    I think its up to you i'm not sure if theres any strict rule saying when you've got to do it. I personally want to get a few pounds lower as my doc says when you come off TFR your liver gains 3lb in the stores it used to have. Its not fat its more energy reserves.

    I agree with Tracy, if you stick to the re-feed plan and eat what they say then you are sure to still lose weight. Good luck and only refeed when the time is right for you. xx
