    Am I right in thinking that while I (a man) pay £48 per week the ladeeeees "only" pay £36 per week, they get 3 per day and I get 2 (slightly larger) per day.... isn't this sex discrimination?

    I think it may be costed out by pence per gram, which makes it the same price, (per gram) but you guys get more grams, so you have to pay more!
    Seems fair enough to me!! :D

    Female packs have 40g in. 21 packs @ 40g per pack =840g £36 divided by 840 = (help! can't do the maths!!)

    I could dress as a woman when I go to the chemist...... there again it seems a lot of trouble to save 12 quid a week, but there again 12 quid is 12 quid....

    You're right Chelly, but I THINK the men get 4 packs of female LT to make the equivalent of male packs.
    Can anyone do the maths yet!?

    well the maths does work IF 1 man = 2 woman, then a woman has 3/4 of a mans total over a week, so if a woman costs £36, divide by 3 and multiply by 4 = £48... all fair.... but is it???

    I see your point, but if you get more product, it costs them more to produce it.
    But then it's not your fault that males need more calories and vits and mins etc.
    So there does seem to be an inequality here. One of the few times it pays to be female I think!

    haha..

    yep I did it but I got 4 packs per day (Equivalent to male 2 big packs) = 28 packs per week = £48.

    Thats £1.71 (48 / 28) per pack men pay

    Ladies get 3 packs per day = 21 packs per week = £36.
    thats £1.71 (36 / 21) per pack ladies pay

    We pay the same amount per pack, per gramme, per everything. There is no discrimination, just the fact that men need to take in more calories per week than ladies

    My brother does LT and was a shake short this week so I gave him two of mine to make up for it. I called LT and they said two female shakes is the equivalent of one male shake.
    So I think it is fair - men may be getting less sachets but they are actually getting more shake, if that makes sense?!

    I think that the chemists who offer lipotrim are tightly controlled by the suppliers, if one chemist broke the "cartel" and offered cheaper lipotrim then the business model would be wrecked. The margins for the manufcaturer and the pharmacy are HUGE......
