    just thought i'd throw this out there, i've just been to my pharmacy to pick up my stuff, now they gave me the choice of the male of female plans, i opted for the 4 smaller sachets/bars per day for the girls, as opposed to the larger sachets for the blokes, my intention was to have one small shake in the morning, a soup and a bar at lunch, then a final shake at tea time, thus making up my 4 smaller (equal to 2 large for the blokes) portions for the day, has anyone else been offered this option? it seems like a good idea to me personally :D

    hi,
    i'm sure the womens plan is only 3 sachets! not four, i also read ur post in the male forum, and u mentioned it there, i thought it might be a type error, are u sure about the 4 sachets a day mate?

    I *think* MisterMRL means that as a bloke he's been offered 4 ladies size servings a day instead of 2 mens ones?

    You are correct though in that women on the female plan are only allowed 3 portions per day.

    yep. those assumptions are spot on, the ladies sachets, for ladies are 3 portions a day, but if a male takes the female ones (the female ones being smaller than the mens) then taking 4 of the ladies equates to 2 of the mens, therefore the reason i've been offered the ladies plan, seems like the better option IMO :)

    So men only have two shakes per day albeit larger portions? If thats correct I would definitely go with the option the pharmacy gave you, Does it work out the same price wise?
    I just thought the men had the same amount of servings just bigger portions.

    well from what i can gather, it works out the same for the male plan, regardless of what you choose, the way my pharmacy did it is by the cost per packet, for a male pack, as i was told it is £48 per week, this week i payed more because i needed 10 days supply due to timings between WI appointments, but usually they said it's £48. It does seem alot more sensible to do it this way, the phrase 'little and often' springs to mind, but i do suppose it's which ever way suits you best really, for some it may be more convenient to just have the 2 shakes/soups/bars than to mix 4 different portions, me, 4 works best (in theory, i start it on sunday)

    there's a thread here about how much we pay for lipotrim, and the ladies pay £36wk while men pay £48wk. but i guess if u do the math 4 womens portions a day come to £48wk as well.

    seems some pharmacies are taking advantage of some people by charging excessively, I see the general consensus being £36 p/w for the laydees and £48 p/w for the blokes, with the obvious exceptions

    Is there is difference in flavours for men and women? If so u might b best to aulternate between male and female so that you could have more varriety. You can always only make the male ones up in half portions, making half at a time and saving the rest for later. If the flavours are the same then id probably go for the female cos as u say a little and often is probably more satifying.

    I think women over a certain height are meant to do four packs - I'm 5'9 so the pharmacist said I could see how I went on three... (I was glad as I didn't want to shell out any more than I had to)

    hmm, i've never heard that either, i'm doing 4 portions of the female plan, as i'm a bloke 4 female ones make up the 2 male portions but may be worth a word with the pharmacy in your case

    I thought that men had different nutritional requirements to women. If the 4 female packs make up the same vitamins and minerals as 2 male packs, then hey, why not :) Wish I could have 4 packs a day! lol
