    Hi all,

    Some of you may remember me posting last week about some concerns over possible side effects of LT (throat swelling after drinking my shakes, difficulty swallowing). On day 6 it got to the stage where I developed an awful rash all over my face, neck and chest, and couldn't even get my water down. I went to the doctor and spoke to the pharmacist, and both said I appeared to be suffering some sort of allergic reaction and should stop Lipotrim immediately.

    I'm absolutely gutted, especially when I was weighed and saw I had lost 10 pounds! I've spent most of the weekend crying my eyes out:cry:

    My doctor has referred me for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which I think will be a good thing. He was also suggesting I try Orlistat (the one that makes orange oil leak out of your bottom, apparently :eek:), but I've refused that.

    Anyway, I'd just like to thank everyone on this board for all the help and advice I received- you are all fab, and a huge support for anyone following the diet.

    I'll still be around on minimins, probably on the Slimming World boards, and will pop in from time to time to see how people are doing, and torture myself reading about your amazing weight losses :)

    Nicky

    Hi Nicky,
    so sorry to hear you can't stay on the diet but well done on your weight loss. Here's hoping you find a plan to suit you. This is a good forum to check put other possibles, perhaps some other one will not cause a reaction. Best of luck.

    That's a shame LT isn't right for you but you must do what's right for your health. I was on orlistat once, never again!! The side effects are awful and I would never advise anyone to try that horrible stuff!!

    Hope you find a diet that works for you and best of luck!

    Have you considered using another brand? It might be something in the LT formula? I thought that lighter life and cambridge were the same sort of diet. I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong.

    Good luck with what ever you do!

    Hi Nicky

    Sorry to hear about your ordeal whilst on LT; but as the others said, your health is most important and you were really uncomfortable, so no good really.

    Good luck on Slimming World and we look forward to you popping in and saying hi.

    Take care
