The Lipotrim Diet

June 23rd, 2010 No comments

It was recently suggested (by someone who shall remain nameless) that I may have been a little too heavy. And I wasn’t in any position to disagree, having reached 17st 2.5lb (109kg), not I might add the heaviest I have been, but still far too much.

Now, I’m not a dieting type person, I like my food. So the standard eat less and exercise more regime was never going to work for me. I’m not ashamed to say I have tried Weight Watchers, and yes it did work for a few weeks and I did lose a pound or two. However, human nature being what it is, temptation is always waiting around the corner. Diets like these (without sounding too cynical) are not designed for permanent weight loss, they draw you in, show how easy it is and then wait for you to flounder.

It was at this point that my wife (who happens to be a nurse) suggested I try the Lipotrim diet. Lipotrim is a total food replacement regime. The general principle is that you stop eating normal food and drink a shake as a replacement. After 48hrs your body goes into Ketosis (link) and begins to burn fat as a replacement energy source. The shakes contain all the necessary vitamins and minerals your body requires. For men you drink two shakes a day and for women three, which provide you with about 500 calories. If at this point you eat any regular food your body will drop out of ketosis and weight loss will stop. The speed of weight loss is very impressive, the average for women 1st (6.3kg) a month, and men 1.5st (9.5kg).

This diet sounded perfect for me, as you basically stop eating, thus removing any temptations. To join the Lipotrim programme you have to register at a pharmacy that is participating. Lipotrim is not available over the counter or on-line.

I started the Lipotrim diet on the 1st of June and by the time of this post (23 days later) I had lost 2st (12.7kg). It sounds too good to be true, but I am not making this up, it is genuine…

If this sounds like the sort of diet for you then I would seriously suggest you take a look at the Lipotrim website: http://www.lipotrim.co.uk
