    Hi and welcome. What made you decide on complan? Was it a doctor? How much have you got to lose? Let us know how you get on. Have you considered a VLCD like Cambridge, Lipotrim or LighterLife? Or something like WW or SW?

    Hi there. Welcome to the site.:) Are you using Complan as your only source of nutrition? That wouldn't be a very good idea because Complan wouldn't have all the essential vitamins and minerals you need. Also sole-source diets like LL, CD etc work on a low carb, low fat basis and Complan has about 35-45g carbs per serving and has glucose which is basically sugar. It's designed to be used when you're ill and don't feel like eating as I'm sure you know.

    You also won't have the hunger-blunting ketosis that comes from the low carbs so you will probably be pretty hungry while using it. I was and that was with eating a meal with them.

    I'm sorry to sound so gloomy but I just wanted to point out the differences between the two diets in case you are disappointed.

    I do understand how isolated you can feel when you are overweight, especially if everyone around you has no problem. If you find the Complan works for you then that's great. :)

    Lyn makes a lot of good points there, Im not sure you can just do Complan the way you can LL or CD. Has your doctor advised you?

    Doing WW doesnt need to cost you anything other than your weekly food budget. If you invest in a calculator you can point everything you buy. Thats how I, and a lot of the girls on the WW section do it, we dont go to classes.

    Isn't Complan a build-up drink? Surely it's not meant to be used as a weight loss product?

    If you got no joy from one doctor go and see another and keep doing that until you get some help as you could end up doing yourself some harm rather than good.

    On the subject of affording LL, if you work it out you would probably find it is cheaper than the weekly food bill.

    And finally, welcome to the forum x
