Lipotrim Vs Cambridge .. opinions

Discussion in 'Lipotrim Forum' started by Size14isallIask!, 13 December 2009 Social URL.

  1. I just wondered if anyone could give me the low down on the CD, as I've never really known about it, and would be interested if anyone had tried both LT & CD to compare.

    What are the pro's/con's for each?

    Which do you prefer?

    What's the estimated weekly loss with CD?

    I'm sure you'll get some detailed comparisons from people who may have tried both, but from what I've read they are nutritionally similar so I guess you should expect similar losses. I gather there is more choice on CD which I think is a disadvantage - it would encourage you to choose what you fancy and that element of choice (to me at least) is bad - I am trying to use my time on LT to get away from thinking about food, so I appreciate the lack of choice I have, if you see what I mean. I think CD advise you do TFR for a limited time (6 weeks is it?) and then have a break. Again, that wouldn't suit me I don't think. I'm happy and well on TFR and rather than coming in and out of ketosis prefer to get on with it.

    I'll be interested to read the replies, but I'm sticking with LT - it has truly changed my life.

    Yes, as Jon says, the nutritional values are pretty much the same (for one of the CD programmes anyway), and there are more choice of flavours for CD.

    There are also more choices of plans, so though you can just SS, you can chose to do slightly higher plans that give the same weight loss ie SS+ or 810. SS+ can be done just with shakes (1 extra for some) and has skimmed milk added, which is popular for people who like some in their teas and coffees. Others chose to do a meal with their shakes. The meal is set out and includes certain proteins and vegetables with strict guidelines for quantities.

    Some people SS or SS+ but use the meal when they feel they need to eat something (social occassions, so they can sit down and eat with their children or when the going gets too tough and they are just about to fall off the wagon). As I say, weight loss is similar to SS. Others stay with SS.

    You can only SS or SS+ for 12 weeks at a time, then you need to do a week of 810. This is to follow the NICE guidelines which state that a VLCD shouldn't be done for more than 12 weeks at a time. LL have a similar rule. I have no idea why LT don't.

    After that 810 week, they can chose to go back to SS. It works very well.

    CD is sold via counsellors who have done the diet themselves.

    Hope that helps :)
