I only need to loose a stone and a half,for my wedding in august. would appreciate any feedback. thanks :)
Hi all, just wanted to say well done to all of you who have been strong enough to start the programme in the first place. Ive hidden my weight extremely well for a lot of years, but had the shock of my life when I stepped on the scales last week to be told my starting weight was 19stone 2lbs. I then made a positive decision that I would make myself get through this to enable me to be more healthy physically,, and if the end result I look better, then brilliant!!!!!!!! I, like a lot of you have stuck mainly to the shakes, although in the evening will have the chicken soup, but made in a blender with black pepper..
I had my first weigh in Friday and have lost 12lbs, and am soooooooooo over the moon. It even spurred me on to return to the gym this morning, (after 5months absent) and do a workout-BUT took it easy.
I have this evening turned down a 'girlie night' because I don't want to be tempted and hope to get to Christmas and into a size 16 Dress. I think this happened briefly when I was 16, so that would be a huge goal!!!!!!! Good luck to you all,,, and keep going it'll be so worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!xxxxx
hi ive join to get some support its my 5th day and im finding it ok its hard when im preparing my families food and my partner offers me choc cake but im staying strong drinking plenty of water as not keen on tea and coffee but im considering the bars next week does anybody know if they are nice im hoping for a gd loss on monday as i exercise like crazy so fingers crossed and il keep ya updated.
Hi, i will be starting my first day of lipotrim diet tomorrow for the 2nd time, sooo looking forward but this time i swear i will keep the weight off!! there is a few down sides to this diet but looking at the end results i had was it worth it???? yes it was....! I LOST 129lbs/ 9st-3lbs in 20 weeks, PLUS POINTS: the weight just fell off, had so much energy, hair and nails grew strong and long all aches and pains stopped felt 18 again.DOWNSIDE POINTS: headaches first 10 days, felt cold all way through diet, irratable and snappy, then worst of all when i started to"refeed" my hair fell out very distressing as this lasted for 12 weeks, i lost roughly 50% volume of my hair. this is the only thing that worries me bout going back on it.
Hi just wanting to get some support and info regarding the Lipotrim Food Replacement Diet. I started it last Wednesday 6/3/13 Weighing in at 13st 6.5lbs, and am now going strong on day 6. Am having to go and get weighed today as i work shifts, but am feeling as though things are going well so far. It's the hardest thing i have ever done in the way of dieting but my husband is supporting me and is making all the family meals so i dont have to worry about cooking food for others. So far I have no side effects apart from feeling a little tired, I am getting 3 litres of water down me and am using a water bottle so i know how much i am drinking, the black tea is ok but i do miss milk with my favourite cuppa and i also miss my Diet Coke but with a good weight loss it will be worth it ;).Have so far only tried the Strawberry, Chocolate & Vanilla (which i made into a Latte and that was lovely)!!!, I have a Chicken Soup to try but will let you know about that one!!! Will also let you know how i get on in the weigh in this afternoon.....Well just got back from my 1st Weigh in after 5 full days and I have lost 7lbs 12st 13.5lb Back under 13st so I am chuffed with that as its not a full week!!! Am on day 6 now so I probably could of lost more by my full week on Lipotrim. Have just also picked up another weeks supply so lets see how the next 7 days go...
2nd timer! Done lipotrim for 3 weeks about 3yrs ago and lost almost 2 stone. Kept it off mostly untill this last 6months, but back in the headspace 2 sort it out. Currently on day 5 and got over the dreaded 1st 4 days! Feelin positive! It is hard when u hav a family 2 cook for, but as soon as I plate up for them, I go to another room and hav my shake. Works for me! I didnt know b4 about this forum, but when u need encouragement things like this are great, because no matter how nice they are, your family and friends just don't understand how hard it is. I find that I can get a bit irritable in the evening time, I think that is because its usually when I'm hungriest. Eating late in the evening is a terrible habit that lipotrim will help me break, but because I kno that's y I'm feeling irritated, it helps me to calm down. Understanding this diet and the way your body works is key with this diet in my opinion, so if your thinking about doing it, research! A lot! If you really are determined then you will do it. Simple. Oh, and make sure and refeed properly and do a few weeks maintenance or u will gain everything back within a few weeks and all your hard work is down the toilet!
Back in 2009 I lost 100lbs (7 stones, 45kg) on the Lipotrim pharmacy programme. The major advantages of Lipotrim is that if you are obese then you are probably addicted to food, and food addiction is different from any other addiction--you can't go (sorry for the pun) cold turkey. No other addictive substance is vital to life. You can give up alcohol, nicotine, crack cocaine--but you can't quit eating food.
But you can with Lipotrim. This isn't a "new fad" ... it's been around since the '70s. There is masses and masses of research on it, and people have lived for years on it (they were pretty huge to start with!)
Someone criticized them for having a rubbish website: it's true. Lipotrim isn't a swish, high-powered commercial outfit with loads of money to spare; it's run by a couple of died-in-the-wool academics. Lipotrim packets are just white with the contents printed in black. Their videos are amateurish and there's no "lifestyle branding". Good. This isn't a "lifestyle choice" it's a live-or-die choice if you are clinically (or, like I was) morbidly obese.
Could they have a better support structure? Absolutely. It's quite clear that neither of them are psychologists. I would love to have the chance to set one up for them, but that will never happen because I now live in the USA and you can't get Lipotrim here (you can, but it has no connection whatever with UK Lipotrim, and isn't the same thing at all). In the USA the FDA don't allow Total Food Replacement diets due to a historical mix up years ago.
I didn't go on to the Lipotrim maintenance programme, not least because I didn't want to be shelling out that money for the rest of my life, and because I commute for long periods to the USA and can't get it here.
So now I'm down to extensively studying nutrition in an attempt to make my own version of Lipotrim here in the USA. I am having some success, but it's hard going: I'm not a biochemist/nutritionist with 40+ years of experience!
If you are obese (I wouldn't bother with Lipotrim if you're merely chubby and want to lose a few pounds) and if you live in the UK, then I would read up on it, print out all the information in the resources page on the website, and go and find your nearest pharmacist who is part of the Lipotrim programme. Ask your pharmacist to send the GP Information Pack to your GP (it's a BIG envelope) then go see your GP. He/She won't have read it. Give them a hard time, give them a couple of weeks, then go see them again. Get them to agree to monitor you during the time you're on Lipotrim: weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, HBA1C. Make them read the research to see that this isn't a fad; it works. I can guarantee your GP won't have anything better that works.
If you can find a friend or two (talk to the diabetic nurse at the GP practice: she/he may be able to put you in touch with others) then it will make a HUGE difference. Then make up your mind, and just do it. Make sure that your family is willing to support you. You won't be cooking for the next six months or so, and you won't be shopping, either, so they will have to do it for themselves. Believe me, eating as a spectator sport sucks!
Weigh yourself EVERY DAY. I know that all the diet pundits will scream blue murder at me. But this diet is hard work for the first two weeks. When you see yourself losing better than a pound a day it will keep you motivated. I am a 6'4" man: I lost 1lb a day, on average, for 100 days. I plotted it on a graph, and that graph was pretty much a straight line. That is AMAZINGLY motivating!
You must stick to it RELIGIOUSLY. Any deviation wrecks the whole thing, and if you stop and start again it's more difficult the second time (and even more difficult the third time, etc!)
But after a couple of weeks your brain will be sharper than it's been in years, you will have bags of energy, and you'll want to climb mountains. DON'T!! On 600 calories a day you have energy for day to day tasks, but not for running marathons! I know. I did it, and it hurts when you "run in to the brick wall".
After about a month take up Nordic Walking (just Google it: there's bound to be a group near you) -- walk half a mile three times a week and a mile on the weekend, and gradually (and I do mean gradually) increase the distance. It took me 12 weeks to go from 3 miles for my long walk to 15 miles for my long walk, but I was over the moon when I did it (sand that was a bit overdoing it--especially as I was 62 at the time!)
During this time, in addition to losing 7 stones I sent my type II diabetes into remission, normalised my blood pressure, normalised my cholesterol levels (I could write another essay about that ... but anything that gets you off statins HAS to be a good thing: Google "Statins Thief of Memory") and normalised my HBA1C.
Did I say it before? Lipotrim is excellent. Not easy, but excellent. A lot of pundits will tell you that 1lb a week is the maximum for safe weight loss. Well, if you do it by simply reducing the quantity you eat, then it is. However, at 100lbs overweight that would have taken me two years. I'm not that patient!
Lipotrim supplies all the <nutrition> that you body needs, but severely reduces the calories, thus enabling safe and rapid weight loss.
Oh, and ... when I started I was on three metformin a day for my diabetes. I was off all medications in under a week (and that's why your GP MUST read the GP information pack.
Oh, and ... it tastes like nothing much. That's the whole idea; you're supposed to be breaking your addiction to food as well as losing weight!
Hi I'm currently on lipotrim at the moment! My starting weight was 15,6 and I lost 13 pounds week one! 3 pounds week 2 and 8 pounds week 3. Im currently 13,11 I'm finding it great full of energy and never starving but I always want to eat what my friends have! I'm just so scared of comin off it in 3 weeks for my sisters wedding and piling on the pounds. I'm going to be so careful when it comes to eating the right foods and exercising like made! I will be going back on it after Christmas until I get to 10 stone so kinda glad I have the break in between because I don't think I could do this for 4 months straight! I crave healthy food now. But overall happy on it
I went on the lipotrim diet last year and lost 2stone in 5 weeks I was over the moon,but as Christmas was just round the corner I thought I'd let my hair down!!big mistake AS I GAINED IT ALL BACK AND SOME!!im now back on it and so determined to do it right this time as I didn't do the refeed last time!being over weight has knocked my confidence but the weight gain was due to to amazing children which I would change for the world,I just want the old me back now and my life will be complete be strong ladies and DO IT RIGHT X
I tried lipotrim out 4 years ago and I lost about 2.5 stone in 6 weeks. I then went through a relationship breakdown so whilst I didnt re-feed the weight continued to fall off. I was a size 12 for the first time in my life I could wear what I wanted to and shop where I wanted to and I also found Mr Right and married for the first time at 33.
Mr Right and I enjoyed wine and good food so 4 years on I am heavier than I have ever been 14 stone and pretty miserable things didnt work out with Mr Right. Lipotrim worked before and I plan to do it right this time by re-feeding once I have completed my target of 8 weeks TFR. Today is day 6 and I feel happy and confident and know its working already I walked in on my housemates eating pizza, chips and drinking wine last night this was not a problem it made me feel good that I have got to day 6 and in another 7 weeks I will be able to roll out the suitcases of clothes that have been packed away for 3 years.
With the right frame of mind and the willpower knowing that lipotrim works I am so excited about the future.
If anyone of you consider to try out LipoTrim (the purple on the bottle one and the one sends out free trial), please do not try it if your stomach is not good. I took 1 pill only before meal and it squeezed my stomach so bad. Yes, it does make me feel full and don't feel like eating, but my stomach was getting pain more and more. Yes, it does make you have a lot of energy - it was like I can fly and guess what, AT NIGHT, I was having hard time to sleep and it was so bad for the next day of work. I ended it up need to see my doctor and I took so many GERD/ulcer (gastro stomach pain) medication to get rid of it. I was feeling vomit also. They said if you call them within 30 days of purchase, they will not continue to send you the bottle/supply and you only need to pay the shipping fee for the trial. SOUND GOOD HUH? but no, they tricked you, please read carefully of the term and condition at the bottom of the page. EVEN YOU CALL THEM TO CANCEL WITHIN 30 DAYS OF PURCHASING, you still have to mail the whole bottle back to them and you still have to pay the whole price to them in order to stop them continue to bill your credit card - $58 something. You can keep the pill but they want the bottle back. I ended it up need to report stollen for my credit card to prevent them to bill inappropriately and I sent the bottle with pills back to them - i paid the shipping fee and that $58. SO PLEASE, DO NOT LISTEN TO THOSE COMMENTS ONLINE. IF YOU WANT TO LOOSE WEIGHT, try out PROACTOL PLUS (cactus ingredients). I tried it and no side effects at all because it is cactus, not chemicals. DO EXERCISE 30 MIN EVERY DAY and eat brown rice with 2 tomatoes per day (especially 1 before you sleep because tomatoes produce water to your kidney at night when you sleep so it can wash away the fat).
I weigh about 12. stone (won't let the pharmacist tell me what I weigh only what I lose)! I have previously done Lipotrim before and lost a massive 55lbs. I couldn't even pick that up in bags. I amnow on day 4 of Lipotrim. The thing is, the longer you do it and don't cheat, the easier it gets.Not had any headaches at all this time. When I first went on the diet I did for three days but was told that it was caffeine withdrawl.Don't give up it really works. Best diet for losing weight fast.Quick tip: Everytime you get weighed put your weight loss in grams or Ibs (400g tin of soup is anout 1lb 1oz )in a carrier bag. You won't believe how heavy half a stone is.Keep at it.Elaine
i went on lipotrim on advice from doctor i was at a hospital each week for my weigh in and after six months i had lost 8 and a half stone i did not want to stop the drinks everyone said you will not stick to it but i did the only thing i had a crave for was pickled onions but did not faulter from it at the 6 month time they start to start you back on food and that was the problem, when i eat a meal i would want more and the more i crave the food the harder it was and the weight started to go back on and i know it was my fault i was eating when i was not to thinking i was only eating low fat stuff i will be ok but old habits are so hard to brake and at the time i only had 1 and a half more stone to lose to get to target weight, i must say health ways i felt great all the time had no problems but it all has gone back on and more.
Lipotrim has medical and non-medical programmes. The medical programme is intended for obese patients. It is available through medical practices and hospital clinics that are willing to assist their patients with the programme. Always consult your doctor before embarking on a serious weightloss program.
