    Hi everyone

    I was wondering have any of you find different diets help you lose weight from different areas.
    The reason I am asking is, I am a classic pear:cry:and any weight I am losing is coming of the top and not the bottom:cry:.
    Has anyone done more than one of the diets listed but found when they switched it helped there other areas?

    I don't know whether it matters what diet you are on.

    I did find that I went pear-shaped though, but then went apple shaped:confused:

    Right at the end of the diet, my stomach went down. About the last 10lbs I think.

    If I put any weight on, it goes straight back to my stomach. Great in a way, as I get a warning signal.

    Whenever I've done other diets (WW, Slimming World etc) I've lost it, but not really got my waist back - I've always had to swim daily to get that shape.

    However, on LL I've got the tiniest waist I've ever had (26inches currently) with no swimming/sit ups etc at all!

    Hi ya
    Sorry bit dim with all these new diets, LL is that the same as lipotrim, or same concept.
    Im have about 22lbs to lose and Im thinking do I get it off asap on one of these diets or do it slowly on ww or unit, just some people are losing a stone is 2-3 weeks I could have this off in no time, very tempting.
    sorry are they not just the same as slimfast I have done this before so can live just off shakes.

    i think LL is very similar to lipotrim they're both very low calorie diets(vlcd) and use a total food replacement phase at the start of the diet. Although (and I'm doin lipotrim) i think LL has th added advantage of having group meetings which use a derivative of Cognitive behavioural therapy to address the emotional issues we can have with food. They are very hard (oh boy are they hard lol) but as you say you wouldn't really have to stick it that long -I'm the same -should I go the long and arguably more sensible route of WW -but I'm too impatient to get the weight off me.

    I suggest if you have the patience stick it out with WW, but I'mprobably only saying that cus I'm hungry and WW is calling to me right now!

    also -I've never heard of targeting areas on a diet - even exercising a certain part of the body doesn't really take care of it that easily, but I'm sure as you lose the weight (and you will!) you'll be happier with your shape anyway.

    I hope I've helped in some wee way. Good Luck and keep us posted what you decide to do.

    Ah thanks Blackrose, I was 11.3 when I got preggers with first child and put on a whopping 7 stone (oops) anyway I lost it (did it myself but cant for the life of me remember how) then got back to 11.3 and got preggers again this time went to 3 stone heavier I am now 11.9 but would love to get back to my wedding day of 9.12 )even if only for a day lol, so I only have 22lbs to go.
    Sorry im not on ww but weighing it up (no pun intended) I am with unit/jisgsaw but my friend are ww and going to classes and the support seems really good, Im thinking should I switch and go to a class for the support or keep going on my own, lost 7lbs in 2 weeks on the unit but you dont obviously have the support of the class, so no social interaction, no one to pat you on the back.
    Do you buy the lipotrim as a pack or could I do for a week say and see how I get on, also I have a girly night next week, could I do this week then have a night off and start again would that work?

    Yep - you got it right. VLCD using shakes, soups and bars, 4 litres of water a day and 2 hour counselling sessions (group) once a week.

    Well unfortunately you have to have 3stone to lose before you can do LL. Not sure about Cambridge or Lipotrim

    Hi
    Oh crikey, I checked on the lipotrim site and it says I am overweight I can do the lipotrim, not sure really as I was reading the refeed info and it says no one manages to keep the weight off, so dont want to go to all the hardship and not manage to keep it off.

    I personally think everybody loses weight in different areas, I doubt their is a diet will make you lose from certain parts. It is an individual thing on how your body will lose from first. For me it is always my chest, face, and my hips and butt last.

    What about Rosemary Conley's Hip and Thigh diet? Surely that is for the pear-shaped amongst us?
