    Hi all.
    I'm new to this and haven't started to use lipotrim yet, But i'm dying to use it. have been trying to get rid of a stone and a half to two stone for ages. My mum used it and it worked well. I have a few questions though.
    I want to start it now but have to go to a wedding on mey 17th where i will be drinking, so i might not start till after that unless there is anyway of getting away with drinking and giving up one of the shakes?
    Also i want to know exactly what it does to your digestive system. Does it give you diarrhea? or constepation?
    i really want to start using it now, could i go off it for the weekend of the weddingand then back on it afterwards?
    PLease reply i would be very gratefull, thanks.

    thanks!

    Thanks a million..
    I'm sorry but i don't know what 'tbh' means nictastic... ?
    but i will wait till after the wedding to go on it. I'm just going to try to get in the routine of excerising until then.
    Would you recomend this product?
    and my main worry is (slighty embarrasing maybe) does it cause diarrhea.. i can handle constipation but I don't know about diarrhea. :eek:
    I'm sorry, but i have yet another question... I'm young (21) and my bmi is 27, in your experience will a pharmacist give you LT if you are this young?
    I'm really excited about going on it, I've been thinking about going on it for ages and this site seems good for support I think I'll stay on it to see how others are doing.
    It was very kind of you to answer so quickly, and answer at all.
    THANKS!!
    xx

    Sorry hun TBH means to be honest...we shorten everything on here lol
    No definately don't get diaorreha hunx
    HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT - i have gone from a size 14 to a 12 in 2 weeks ...ITS FAB!!! the first week is the worse once you get over that you are flying xx
    My bmi was 28.9 and i am 29 i would say they would give it to anyone over 18 as long as you have a bmi in the range of 26 +
    This site is fab....and not boring like others ...if you have any questions just post and you'll get answers!!

    About the diarrhea, I have had it on several occasions since starting Lipotrim.
    I've found it tends to happen when I take my shakes too close together, I think it's the concentration of minerals that causes it.

    Hello again..

    Hi.
    It's me again. I got the lipotrim. Found out my BMI is 25. Been on it a week. I only lost three pounds the first week. Which I was dissapointed with to say the least.
    And at the moment I am about to break. I have a bag of crisps in front of me, started to make a sandwich but couldn't put it in my mouth.
    Help, I know all the reasons why i shouldn't eat anything but all thats going through my head is I can start again tomorrow...
    Hows everyone doing on it?

    ahhhhhh step away from the food!!!1 you have done so well sticking to a week you will waste it all and for what an half empty packet of crisps and a sandwich you prob wont enjoy.....

    dont be disheartened with your loss, can i ask how much water you are having daily this has a direct correlation to how much you lose so the more the better but stop at 6 litres a day x x

    i hope you are strong x x

    I was on LT but now on atkins for health reasons and the fact my chemist stopped doing LT x x

    if you need some encouragement pm me x

    hey not lost it all yet i lost 19lbs on LT and now on atkins to lose the rest, it can be tough at points but i found that if i only drank 2 litre i would lose around 2/3 lbs per week my best was drinking 4/5 litres a day, would lose 7ish, although you end up peeing constantly x

    so i take you havent eaten x

    Thanks. its now nearly 12 and i haven't caved in.. still another week to go..
    I don't understand how drinking more water will help lose more weight tho?
    Is the weight you lose not just water?

    hi, im not sure of the science stuff, but it is true, the more water you drink, the more weight you lose, i've got my 4th weigh in on monday and can't wait.... keep going, just think how great your going to feel in a smaller size.

    Morning Atmosphere and welcome, (bit late i know)

    how much do you have to lose, ive confused myself cant rememebr if you said you where 10st or 12st.

    i was a little disapointed with the slowness of my weight loss, but my pharmasists yesterdays said if people had less than 3stone to lose they should expect 2.5 - 4lbs(early on) a week.

    keep stong and good luck

    don't cave in!!!! I know its the next day now - but...just dont do it!!!

    I dont know the science but it goes something like this, i think....After day 4 or 5 on LT your body goes into a state called lipolysis - this means it starts using stored fat for energy rather than the stuff u used to put in ur mouth. Lipolysis results in the creation of Ketones (this is called ketosis) Your body then has to release these ketones - it does his via ur breath and ur urine.

    Now for the water bit... Every living thing is made up of mostly water - that includes you! - we get most of the water we need to stay healthy via the food we eat, as the food we 'used' to put in our mouth used to be a iving thing and obviously made up of mostly water too - because we have taken that resource out of our diet we have to replace it by drinking more, to stay heathy.

    You need to drink a minimum of 2 ltrs of water a day PLUS the water you have in your shakes and soups. If you don't your weight loss could be slower. If you dont drink enough water - your body will hold on to the water it does get thinking there is a drought, possibly resulting in a weight gain weight. If you want to lose weight quickly you need to drink water - plain water

    SO DRINK DRINK DRINK!!!!!

    I quit.

    I feel really guilty to tell ye this cos ye helped me when I almost quit.. But I stopped it on monday, I have eaten food everyday since then, nd it hasn't been healthy. I was thinking of going on atkins.. But now I'm considering just going back onto the lipotrim..
    What do ye think.. Seeing as i quit once should i spend that much money on it again? Does anyone know if atkins really works? has anyone had any experience on it?
    Thanks!
