Frequently Asked Questions

Health (1)

The rate of weight loss is about a stone a month with full compliance on the Lipotrim total food replacement diet.

You must maintain compliance to remain comfortable , healthy and ultimately to reach your target.

With all of this in place you are able to remain on the Lipotrim programme without deviation until the excess weight is lost.

Remember ALL the essential nutrition you require is provided in the Lipotrim formulas.

e.g. if there is a 1 stone of excess weight we’d expect an approximate 4 week dieting time (this is the minimum time and weight loss appropriate for this diet), for 10 stone loss about a 10 month dieting time would be expected, and so on (ie the maximum time is excess weight loss target dependent).

An absolute end-point for any participant is strictly BMI 20

    IS THERE PUBLISHED EVIDENCE ON THE SAFETY AND EFFICACY OF VLCDs?

    There is so much published evidence about the safety and efficacy of VLCDs that publishers reject new data on the basis that it is so well known that no one cares.

    A proper search of the literature will bring up many hundreds of peer reviewed publications, but these can be made invisible if the correct criteria is not used in the search.

    The search criteria often used is to limit the publications to those studied that are placebo controlled and double blind. Since it is not possible to offer study subjects a formula diet without them knowing what they are eating, there are none that turn up in the search.

    The rapid weight loss seen with the Lipotrim Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) can have a huge positive effect on many medical conditions from reducing cancer risk, to improving blood pressure (Hypertension) to forcing type 2 diabetes remission. Here are two of the main prevention and treatment benefits of rapid weight loss and Lipotrim.

    HYPERTENSION

    “Being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing high blood pressure. In fact, your blood pressure rises as your body weight increases. Losing even 10 pounds can lower your blood pressure—and losing weight has the biggest effect on those who are overweight and already have hypertension.”

    The relationship between body weight and blood pressure. – NCBI

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3070038

    A recent assessment of over 200 people with high blood pressure pre-diet lost more than 5% of their pre-diet weight using a VLCD under the care of pharmacists.  On average, these people lost nearly 2 stones of weight. The weight losses ranged from a half stone to a massive 9 stone. At larger start weights a 5% weight loss equates to a much bigger downward shift in BMI when compared with lower start weights. For example a 5% loss for a 26 stone patient would be 1.3 stone weight loss compared with just over 0.5 stone weight loss for a 12 stone patient achieving 5% weight loss. Patients were excluded on health grounds if their pre-diet BMI was too low to continue weight loss for a minimum of 4 weeks dieting.

    These pharmacies have made, and are continuing to make a considerable contribution to the health of their customers.

    TYPE 2 DIABETES

    Possibly an even greater medical benefit from VLCD is the effect on type 2 diabetes.

    The media headlines are that “Tackling obesity head on can  REVERSE type 2 diabetes”

    Obesity and type 2 diabetes are in the news again. This time it is the revelation that type 2 diabetes can be reversed through weight loss. Although known since the publications of Oxford Professor Arthur Scott Donkin in 1871, and a mass of publications since the introduction of modern VLCD, it is important that this effective treatment for this killer disease is becoming more widely known.  VLCDs could save the NHS the one million pounds an hour that they report spending in treating type 2 diabetes.

    The list of medical problems either caused by or made worse by overweight and obesity is long.

    Losing significant weight with VLCDs, under the supervision of healthcare professionals, is making an important contribution to the health of the nation.

    The short answer is that the rapid weight loss achieved with Lipotrim makes this type of diet an excellent option for type 2 diabetics.

    Type 2 diabetes is a serious disease, taking a very large proportion of the national health budget,  yet is largely a preventable disease.

    Certain risk factors make a person more susceptible to suffering from type 2 diabetes, like genetics and age which you cannot do anything about.

    The risk factor, carrying excess body weight, is common to a majority of type 2 diabetics. Type 2 diabetes can often be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle, keeping the body within a normal BMI range of 20 to 25 (this BMI range may be lower in certain populations). Type 2 diabetes can certainly be forced into remission by treating existing excess weight and obesity but is seldom seen owing to the failure of many traditional diets to achieve meaningful weight loss.

    Please take the time to read “Stop the amputations – Type 2 diabetes cured by diet alone but is this revolutionary?”

    Rapid weight loss, using the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Lipotrim, can often force the full remission of type 2 diabetes within days.

    A type 2 diabetic would require the full co-operation of their GP. The pharmacy must liaise with the patient’s GP to explain the need to stop the diabetic medications on starting Phase 1 of the Lipotrim programme: Weightloss.

    If the patient is using Insulin then the patient would be excluded from participating in the Lipotrim Programme and referred to their GP for help.

    Once the GP and pharmacist are in agreement then on day 1 of the diet phase the patient would stop taking their diabetic medication with their blood glucose levels falling into the normal range within the first week, without he need for medication. It should be noted that the continuation of diabetic medication, or the cessation of medication without the consent of the GP, would be outside of the programme and prohibited.

    The type 2 diabetic would carry on through the weight loss phase for the length of time required to lose the desired amount of excess weight, preferably down to a healthy BMI. Once this has been achieved, the patient would re-introduce traditional foods using the predetermined “Refeeding” menu.

    The response to such a significant weight loss could be the full remission of the type 2 diabetes. This is NOT a cure. Diabetes can not be cured but forced into “silence”. This remission must be confirmed with the co-ordination of the GP and pharmacist and a lifelong weight maintenance strategy be followed.

    The increased insulin sensitivity and decreased insulin resistance brought about by the loss of weight is likely to keep the type 2 diabetes at bay unless the weight is regained.
