    Hi Im new to this site but I have been on the Lipotrim Diet for nearly 4 weeks! (19 pounds lost)! Its been quite easy to start with even though the water has been a bit hard going! But im finding it really tough now especially as my weight loss seems to be slowing and I havent touched any food (honest). Just wondered if there was anyone out there who could inspire me to keep going!

    Thanks

    Hi lipgirl and welcome! You've done so well don't lose heart! The water is the hardest part, but thats the trick, if you dont drink enough of it, you won't lose weight cause (don't quote me on the sciencey bit!) it sits in your body not being flushed out!!! The whole point of all the water is basically this = Your kidneys need to be well hydrated, for a normal eater 2l a day, for us, 4 to 5 l a day. If your kidneys arent hydrated, they wont work at optimum power, so they transfer some of their workload to your liver. And its your liver that's trying to break down the fat!!! So when it has more work from the kidneys, it cant concentrate on the (wonderful )fat melting!

    It might just seem like a load of hot air but I know it made it easier for me to get my water down once I knew what it was for!

    And as for inspiration check out the before and after pics in the lipotrim section!!!

    Your doing really well. Youve lost 20lbs in 4 weeks... thats above the average for a VLCD it could be youve just lost less this past week because your body is catching up with the phenomenal losses before that :)
