    You can have 2 cups of non starchy veggies at dinner time during intensive I think? I have to find this out because I'm starting the program again today and I forget it's been so long!

    That's right, they have a list of approved veggies and ones to avoid

    The next stages add fruit and dairy as well. I think it is a great program as a whole being that it steps down that way, not just 'cut out a meal/add a shake' iykwim.

    Took a long time, but it was easy to stick too, my dr helped me and most drs know a lot about the optifast so he was happy to do weekly appointments with me to help me through.

    I had tried and failed on all other shake diets but this one.
    I was suppose to have Lap Banding but my GP wanted me to try optifast first

    Good luck!

    Here are some of my weight loss pictures, I did optifast for 8 months then started following healthy eating once I had broken "Habbits"
    Attachment 30005
    ^ the first photo was just after I started loosing weight. The second photo is of me now.

    Attachment 30006
    ^ the first photo was after a few months on the diet (no I wasn't pregnant )
    The second photo was me after I had finished optifast and went onto healthy eating.
    My hair was brown for a while, that is me in all the pictures
    Wow that is inspirational!

    What would a typical days eating be for you on 1400 calories?

    I think optifast is the one docs recommend because it has the most nutrition and best carb/protein ratio (meaning it keeps you fuller for longer). This was what my doc told me but that was about 3 years ago so may have changed.

    20 minuets only for exercise, when you restrict calories like that you don't want to exercise to much, you will just make your body go into a state of shock once it can't pull enough energy because you have restricted what you have eaten.

    After the first 3 months, I started having 3 shakes and 1 meal (my meal was something like a serve of protein and green veg or a green salad with chicken) my exercise went up when I starting having food again, this went on until by BMI got to a certain level, once I hit that milestone it changed to 2 shakes a day, 2 small meals , each time I hit a certain amount of weightloss I was able to switch a shake for a healthy portion sized meal, but I had to up my exercise whilst I did this.
    I was always allowed 2 small snacks during every phase expect the shake only phase.

    The kind of mindset behind it is to reset your mind about food, I had the shake only diet for 3 months as they say it takes 3 months for your brain to stop craving bad foods and for your body to get use to new habits.
    After that I was slowly introduced on how to eat healthy and exercise

    So at the beginning, for me it was just shakes... Not very fun.

    In the middle
    Less shakes and the ones lost replaced with healthy meals.

    End, keeping this current weight
    All healthy meals, 1 treat day a week and a firm exercise program.

    They say its 80% diet and 20% exercise to loose weight.
    As in if you change your diet you will see more results then just keeping your current diet and exercising.

    The BIGGEST thing was to not over exercise in the beginning, I would have burned my body out from the low calories and would have physically needed to bindge.
    If some days I felt I didn't have the energy to exercise I was told not to, but all I could do was 20 mins of light walking really.
    As more meals came in I had to up my exercise so I didn't rebound.
    In the end I'm left with a mind that is set with having a balance of healthy eating and exercise.

    So in a way the program changed my thinking about food and exercise over the course of 8-12 months whilst I was loosing weight.

    I did the optifast through my dr and dietitian so I'm not 100% sure on how optifast say to do it.

    There have been bad weeks, but I'm able to pull my self out of it all unlike before

    People say shake diets just make you put on weight when you get off them, which is true if you abuse the programs and don't follow the rule of when you start eating more you exercise more, and you need to make a change to have healthy food.

    I didn't just rely on Optifast either.
    There is some great things on the Internet to read to start understanding how your body burns calories (every one burns them at a different rate)
    You can find out why some foods are better than others.
    I always avoid sugar, I don't give a crap about fat in foods (I'm not talking about Mackas or KFC fat loI I'm talking full fat yoghurt, Full fat Milk, Fish, nuts etc ) you use that fat, your body burns fats, sugar just burns up energy to quick, your body stores it for to long and after the little "Sugar High" your body and metabolism runs slower, you get that crash effect.
    So I have never bought low fat yoghurt or milk etc as its just full of sugar instead.
    My dietitian told me that one, but there are many things like it to read up on if you look on the net.

    I suppose it's just about getting educated and working out your happy medium.
    I have tried certain things and found my body didn't agree with it and I put on weight, tried other things and I lost to much for when I was wanting to keep stable.
    Different things work for different people.
    It's a big change but getting educated on the little things can make a big difference, being aware of how your own body works is always going to be helpful as well.
    Thankyou so much for taking the time to write all this for us
