So, a new physican supervised medical program opened up next to my house, "Thinique." Unique name right!! Anyway, I got a smoking deal on a living social deal and decided to try it out. First, it is an 800 calorie, high protein/low fat/low carb nutritional plan (trying not to say "diet") for 5 days. This is supposed to put your body into a high level of ketosis. (drink water!). Then on day 6 till goal, you gradually add in dairy, fruit and veggies. There is the option of using an appetite supressant or amino acid appetite suppressent, along with the usual B-12/etc injections once a week.

So, being the human ginea pig, I will try it out with month and keep people posted. I had an EKG, blood work, heart rate, weight and body fat measured and there is a doctor keeping tabs on a weekly basis. The staff at the clinic were super nice and not pushy about buying food, injections, etc..

I am 183.5 lbs and all blood work and EKG were normal. Will try to keep people posted.

    If you exercise, you can add that to your daily calories. Decided to try the old fashioned way, cut down on sugar and white stuff, exercise and drink more water. tried and true!!

    Only 800 calories a day sounds scary to me! Be careful not to force your body into starvation mode. Remember slow and steady wins the race, especially in weight loss. Developing healthy lifestyle changes with proper nutrition will not only get the weight off, but keep it off !! Good luck!!! emoticon
