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.
