    I was under the impression (g)you were expected to lose around 3 stone in Foundation, however, people seem to be reporting much higher losses than that. Is it hopeful selective reading by me or have I (yet again) misread the information?

    before i fell of the wagon i was on lighterlife for 7 weeks, and had lost 44.5lbs. But everyones body works different and reacts differently to lighterlife so dont panick a loss is a loss and any loss is a good loss!

    I cant remember exactly but it was over 4 stone in the first 100 days. LL guarantee at least 3 st but most who stick to the diet seem to loose more than that.

    Sorry, Annie - don't know anything about Lipotrim. Maybe try their forum and see if anyone can help. I've always assumed these vlcds are much the same - the difference with Lighter Life is the counselling, not so much the food. Most people feel a bit rough for the first few days, but then it settles down and you feel ok for the rest of the diet period. But you sound as if you have had a terrible time, and I hope you'll feel better this time round.

    In the first 10 days I lost 50 lbs - 3 stone 8lb. No cheating, but not a lot of exercise either!

    Hey... I lost just over 5 stones in foundation, but our group varied widely. I think it depends on how much you have to lose at the outset, exercise, water intake and whether you stick to the plan religiously or not! But ultimately all our bodies just work differently so who knows?

    Good luck to all of those just starting out - trust us long timers, it is more than worth sticking too!

    Wow, you guys have achieved some incredible weight losses in Foundation.
    On average the members of my foundation group last 3 stones - I lost just under this, despite following the programme religiously.
    I just wanted to post this because not everyone loses huge amounts in Foundation, so don't beat yourself up if you don't get to the 3 stones or more - just bear in mind that there are few other diets out there where you can lose so much weight in such a short space of time
