When is best to refeed?


I've got the power
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:

Says it as it is!!!
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.

Well hun i lost 10lb on refeed! I stopped before target as my face was getting too thin! I was a bit disappointed as wanted to reach 11 and half stone! I am now maintaining at 11st 5lb so glad i stopped the shakes when i did or i would be prob too think! Myself Fifi and Harriet have all lost more weight on refeed hun so maybe take that into consideration but do whats best for you xxx
