I had a letter from Lipotrim in the post yesterday informing me that their order line for products closes on Friday, 14th December 2012 until 2nd January 2013 so those of us staying 100% for December may need to remind our chemist so they order enough stock in advance and they also sent me a leaflet which I've copied and pasted below for those it might interest. A testing season is approaching for us all, lets all be strong and make the right choices for ourselves.
Our best advice .
DON'T BREAK YOUR DIET FOR CHRISTMAS
You are' NOT being given permission to break your diet for Christmas
you choose to break your diet, here are a few of the issues involved:
The Christmas season often presents a series of pressures to indulge in food and drink at considerably excessive levels. As a result, the weight regain consequences of a loss of control can be considerable. This can prolong your need to diet on the formula in the New Year, Is this really what you want to do?
Restarting can be considerably more difficult than starting the first time. You have achieved a great deal and are now in danger of forgetting those difficult first days. Remember who it is that has to be uncomfortable during the restart of the diet.
You must refeed appropriately if you plan to break the diet for Christmas:
a) 1. The Maintenance Formula Foods are designed to help you keep control while eating normal food. Have one or two daily during the tempting days of the Christmas period.
2. Try using two Lipotrim maintenance formulas each day with a normal low fat, high protein meal for two weeks before attempting to restart. This should ease the transition back into the Lipotrim Total Food Replacement Programme.
b) Restart as soon as you can and make sure you don't give in to the temptation to delay 'just another day'.
Make sure you keep your regular appointments and never restart Lipotrim as a total food replacement without seeking advice, even if you have a few left over sachets.
c) Alcohol blunts your resolve. Avoid excessive drinking if at all possible.
d) Keep in mind that the more sugars and high carbohydrate foods you eat, the more glycogen you will restore, the more water weight you will regain and the harder restart will be.
e) Keep in mind that the more fats and oils you eat, the more real fat you will have to take off after you restart your diet.
f) Turkey and lean ham are high protein foods and may not make it quite as difficult to restart as high carbohydrate foods will, although they will remind you what food tastes like and stimulate your desire to eat again. Try to just eat some of the protein foods and ignore the fats and carbohydrates. Your capacity will not be very large, anyway, after being on total food replacement for a prolonged period and you are likely to find that you become very uncomfortable if you eat a very large meal.
g) Christmas lunch prepared by following very low fat principles will have far fewer calories than the traditional counterpart.
Christmas will return again next year, we promise. If you are able to reduce your weight, you stand a much greater chance of celebrating Christmas Future. The choice is yours. Make sure that the choice really is yours. No-one has the right to force you to eat or drink during Christmas.
