Lipotrim Total Food Replacement Programme

Lipotrim Total Food Replacement Programme


The Lipotrim total food replacement programme, uses nutrient-complete formula foods, which have proven safe and effective for weight loss at the maximum safe rate**.

Available since 1987 through GPs and in pharmacies since 2001 in the UK and Ireland.


Principles of weight loss

Our brains react to food through many of the same neural pathways as addictive substances such as drugs and alcohol. We effectively behave as though addicted to food.

The strength of drive to get food, when it is restricted, is one of the most powerful biological instincts we have. It is well documented that the most effective means of management is avoidance of the substance of abuse.

The basic concept that consuming fewer calories than we burn will result in weight loss is true. A person who is severely overweight simply cannot expect to lose the weight just by consuming a moderately reduced intake, any more than an alcoholic can be cured by reducing intake to a few social drinks a day.

In order to treat obesity, a substantial calorie gap is required to achieve significant and rapid weight loss, but a complete compliment of nutrients is essential to maintain health.

The Lipotrim Total Food Replacement Programme


Lipotrim is a nutrient complete, very low calorie food formula which meets all the necessary criteria for reliable and safe weight loss.

In summary

You stop eating all conventional foods and replace them with the nutritionally complete formula foods.

By maximizing the calorie gap, whilst still maintaining nutritional health, the body draws on its reserves of sugar and excess fat to meet the body’s energy requirements. This happens regardless of the calories required by each individual. Lipotrim is therefore an excellent diet choice whether you are highly active or sedentary.

You are not living on a reduced amount of calories, just changing the source of calories. You will feel comfortable, healthy and ultimately in control.

You should aim to consume a minimum of 2 to 4 litres of water, plus optional black tea and black coffee only.
