Hi Stacey !
It depends on how much you need to lose before you reach a healthy BMI and it also depends on the chemist.
Some chemists prefer you to have at least a stone to lose, but others insist on you having 3 stones or more to lose !
If full Lipotrim isn't an option for you, you would still be able to go on the maintenance programme instead, which does work, but the weight loss is slower.
Hope this helps !
i want to lose 2 stone by september hun. my BMI is calculated at 25.6
what is the maintenance programme hun, and how do i go about it?x
hi stacey!! i'm about half a stone over the maximum for a healthy BMI and my chemist was really encouraging!! she says i can stay on it until i reach the bottom of the healthy BMI range. good luck if you do decide to go for it!!! from first hand experience-the first week is pretty tough-but i'm assured it gets easier!! you have to be pretty determined to stick to it...but it definately does get results!! and fast!!

Hi xstaceyx, 25.5 is kinda in the healthy range do you really need to loose two stone? how tall are you?
here is some info on the maintanence program

[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]Weight Maintenance Programme that can also help you lose weight.[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]If you have dieted in the past, but then found it hard to stay down at your new lighter weight, this could be the answer.[/FONT]
Lipotrim Weight Maintenance products are unique formulations of low Calorie foods with a special high soluble fibre content that can help you gain control of your weight. They are nutritious and they make you feel satisfied for longer. So you eat lighter meals and are less likely to 'snack' between times.
[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]How do Lipotrim Weight Maintenance Foods Work?[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]The Lipotrim Maintenance Foods lower the glycaemic index of the meal and slow the absorption of sugars from the meal. This slower rate of absorption reduces the rise in your body's blood sugar levels which, in turn, needs a lower insulin response. A lower insulin reponse means that your feeling of hunger, food cravings and your tendency to store fat is reduced. With a reduced desire to eat to excess, you have better control of your eating and, therefore, your weight.[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]Tasty Range[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial,sans-serif]The range comprises of an orange creme drink, a summer fruits drink a chocolate whip desert prepared with skimmed milk, a cream of vegetable soup and a caramel flavoured chewy bar.[/FONT]

To Maintain Present Weight: - Take a maintenance product before a low calorie breakfast and lunch. For dinner have a normal low fat meal.
To Reduce Present Weight: - As above but add a maintenance product before dinner. This will help restrict the calories needed in your dinner meal.
Drinking Water!!! - Dont Forget - DRINK the WATER - The body needs at least 4 pints of water every day regardless of diet.

iam 5"2 which is quite short! being 10 stone doesnt suit my bodyframe.

how much on average is the lipotrim diet? and do you get a weekly supply of food once you start?

the full TFR (total food replacement) diet is around £35 a week but that is it, you only need to buy bottled water if you wish there should be no other expence so it does work out cheaper than eating normal food.

I'm not sure how much maintanence is though sweetie.

Have a look at this, Free BMI Chart. How to chart your Body Mass Index determining your body fat percentage loosing 2 stone will put you just under healthy however you need to do what you feel comfortable with. Why not try aiming for 1 stone as a first goal and see how you feel. 1 stone on TFR should take on average 3 weeks. remember, the less you need to loose the less you should loose each week.

hope this helps hun

Hi Stacey,

Go and see your chemist and see how happy they are for you to start. If they aren't keen then find one who is. Tell them you are small framed and need to lose more.

My chemist is fine about me sticking to it until I am happy (although I had a lot to lose when I started!)

Good luck.

thanks! my friend think its a bad idea! as im not severely obese! im goin to look on the weightwatchers website now x


Says it as it is!!!

At a 25.6 BMI you shouldnt be allowed to start the TFR .. You should be offered the maintainence products
Good luck

You need to eat 3 meals a day hun or you will end up having too many snacks!
Look into Low GI / GL is fab and you can literally eat anything as long as you make best choices...i.e swap white bread for grained bread, pasta for wholemeal pasta.
Also meal wise you are best cooking your own from scratch as you know whats going in alot of ready meals have so much crap in them you can make your own for half the cals and no nasties xx good luck xx
This thread has some good info on Low GI/GL XX http://www.minimins.com/lipotrim-refeeding/44231-low-gi-info-hope-helps-x.html
