Thanks Kristine.

Day 3 of Refeed and going along well. I am feeling a lot better and sleeping better as well.

The only new food I have added in is pineapple and tomorrow I will add either blueberries or blackberries. That means I will have 5 servings of fruit so I think I better make up some fruit salad.

I could have bread right from day 1 but decided against it as I remember bread gave me a rotten headache last time. As I have been very busy the last three days I didn't want to deal with a headache as well. When my plan adds two slices of bread I will try it then.

My weight has remained stable on 62.1kg and I still feel hungry at times during the day even with the additional portions.

Hey Tuti

Isn't it strange that the two most prevalent foods in the Western diet - wheat and bread products and dairy, can cause the most problems when reintroduced to the diet?

I, too, have had bread from Day 1 on both official refeed programs (2006 and 2017) and going from my 2006 experiences (no headaches but delicacy forbids me from explaining what happened but it was extremely uncomfortable), was very careful how I introduced bread in 2017

I was in the habit of taking chicken, cauliflower & spinach soup in a thermos to work, so I chose rye bread and took this as croutons for the soup, adding the dry bread to the soup managed to bypass the almost instant problems caused by eating the bread separately, as if it was crispbread, as I had done in 2006.

With regards to milk, I decided I didn't want to go back to milk in coffee, so added it to my Meal 1 yoghurt. I figured my gut would know how to deal with the additional dairy and whatever lactose would be present could be dealt with in that one meal of the day.

But what really stumped me was combining proteins - after six months of single protein meals I found it really difficult getting my head around mixed protein. My consultant reminded me that although I couldn't increase egg, cheese or yoghurt meals I could add the new protein to that so I think I added some chicken to a cauliflower cheese meal, and another time did a rather strange version of a mixed grill.

Enjoy the refeed and glad to hear you are sleeping better

Lotsa love

Lost 28 kilos in 2006, 15 kilos twice since then and 25 kilos in 2017. This is an On Program+Refeed January 2019 lose 10kg refresher - Goal Weight and Size 10, is just a few week's waltz along the beach!

Day 8 of Refeed.

My weight has stayed the same for the first 7 days of refeed as when I finished the meal plan..62.1. So it was a surprise this morning to see my weight go down to 61.7Kg. Especially considering that I felt so full yesterday after having to have my meals closer together.

I am currently having my 3 pieces of fruit plus one good fruit (blackberries) and one bad fruit (strawberries). So I make a big bowl of fruit salad and divide it into three. I had to have one of these with my lunch as I didn't get a chance to have it earlier because we were at Sovereign Hill with our visitors.

I decided to have bread from the bakery as it doesn't seem to have so many preservatives and I haven't had any problems. Today I had an egg on toast and chicken and veggies for breakfast, Chicken, cheese and veggies on a salada biscuit...grilled, and for dinner I will just have mixed protein and cooked veggies.
It is getting confusing now and I have decided it is easier to work out the next days meal the night before and not plan too far ahead.
I don't think I will add milk either Kristine. I have only had yoghurt twice this time around as I found I felt a bit sick and I really don't like natural yoghurt. Last time I used a sweetener in my yoghurt but this time I haven't because I really hate the taste.
I keep looking at days 15,16 and 17 of the refeed plan I wonder how I am going to fit it all in.

Day 3 of Refeed.

At this stage of refeed it seems all I do is eat and meal prep.

Have really enjoyed the fruit salad and really don't want to go back to one piece of fruit in maintenance to be honest.
I had margarine on my toast this morning. Toast isn't quite the same without butter or margarine. I still haven't had milk and find I only have one black coffee a day. I also haven't really had to have lemonade or coke. I just have the water to wash all the food down
My last day is Friday and I am so looking forward to not being as strict although most of the time I will probably eat the same foods. I am sure my stomach has shrunk so much more than last time although with what I am eating now it is hard to believe.
I am still at my lowest weight at 61.7kg and every day expect the scales to go up. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens in the next couple of days.
I think my husband is sick of me announcing each day what new food I can have that today I am going to try pasta and Wednesday it will be the scotch finger biscuit.

Hi Tuti,
Seems that should show "Day 13 of Refeed", not Day 3.

Well done you - going like a train. Remember to tip-toe into Maintenance. You are wanting to be on the longest plateau of your life after Refeed finishes.

You must be near to Goal Weight now but if not, don't worry too much. For sure you are now at the kind of weight that will be "no problem" in so many ways. And, (as Shell found out a long time back) it might be that you find you might shed even more weight as you eat MORE. Shell was exercising and still living on mid-Refeed meal quantities - she was starving herself. Once she stopped that, the weight losses came once more.

Your journey though will likely be different to others - so do take the time to test things to find what works for YOU.

Good luck - go get it,

Just a big happy hushpuppy
I haven't "done" Cohens - Asy knows me from way back - she invited me to "take a look" here - I did, loved it, and stayed...
And me? I'm a tall skinny bloke (BMI ~23) and have been this way forever, so I haven't faced (weight-wise) what you all have !!
