Since FormU3 products are no longer available, do you have any suggestions on how we could replace those products? Thank you

I am in Florida until mid May, when I get back home I can look and see what info I have. I didn't read thru the full thread but I can post some other things as I recall them
64 oz of water a day
Much better results if no soda, if you have to have it, Diet Rite was the only one we recommended
Constipation was a problem, a cup filled of warm lemon water helped

Oh my goodness thank you so much for this post. Since you worked the franchise for 10 years would you be able to advise us in what we could replace for FormYou3 products?

Again, this is great and exciting.

I worked then owned a Nutribolic/Formu3 franchise for 10 years. I can give you the time frame for the levels if you need it.
Melt Down was 4 days then went to 7
Level I was 1 weeks also
Level 2 depended on the amount of weight to lose. Less than 10lbs 1 week
10-20 2 weeks
21-30 3 weeks
31+ 4 weeks
Level 3 until no lose for 7 days if no deviation, then we would break plateaus by going back to melt down and starting over.
Caffeine is a huge no no

We also found clients had better results by using real butter, sour cream, etc

I have all the levels & book of choices. I already attached the Melt Down menu (lower on the page), however, I can't remember when to change levels. Which level do you need?

Hi I also did Form U 3 back in the late 80's. I lost from 175 down to 125 and maintained for many years. I am interested in doing it again, however, I am not near as young as I was then. does anyone have the old plan?

Thank you jkeeney3. That is what I could ascertain as well. It appears Form You 3 is owned by the Health Management Group. HMG's website still shows the franchise and I found a presence of Form You 3 on Facebook in Dover OH that appears to be active, possibly a few in PA. It seems more franchise owners are going with the Physicians Weight Loss Centers in VA, but I wanted a program that did not require a lot of products to buy, injections, and high program fees. Thanks for backing me up.

I'm on day 4 of the Melt Down.

I know the Melt Down duration is one week, does anyone know when to move from Level 1 to Level 2 & beyond?

I googled and researched Form U 3 but I do not think they are in business anymore. I also tried to google various ways to buy Form U 3 products and they are not available. Thanks for the information, totally appreciate it and if you ever need a diet pal, let me know. Have a good day and good luck

The Vegetable Choices for the Melt Down program are:

Asparagus, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumbers, Green Beans, Lettuce, Mushrooms, Onions, Peppers, Spinach, Snow Peas, Tomatoes, Yellow Squash, Zucchini.

I had the document as a PDF that was more legible, however, the website would not allow me to upload the file in this format. Let me know if you need anything else.

Does anyone know if Form You 3 is still in business? The main website is down (3/12-3/13/17 so far). My local store closed down when I was partially through reaching my goal. Any way to order their food products online?

I have all the materials I used when I did this program in the 90s. It worked for me and I am just starting it again myself. It's relatively easy to follow and I'm going to try to incorporate using services like Blue Apron & Hello Fresh to change things up a bit. I got bored with it the last time but it worked! I lost 60lbs. in about 6 months and need to do it all again :-(

Does anyone remember what snacks were on the Form you 3 diet. I done the program in 1991 with success but didn't use their products. With so many low fat sugar free snacks I am curious what would work.

I did this back in the late 80's and lost about 80 lbs. Over the years I've gained back about 25. I'm going to dig mine out tonight.

This is just what I needed to get back on track!

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?

I just found this post. Then again, I've been gone for years! Form U 3 was *the* only diet plan that ever worked for me. The only thing I can remember is that it basically followed the Food Pyramid, the smallest of each serving -- so, if it's 3-5 servings, they said 3 servings. They also had loads of sugar-free packets of various items you could purchase, and came up with delicious recipes for sugar-free punches. This was before the days of all these packets they have now, except you *could* get sugar-free hot chocolate back then.
I would LOVE to find the original, main part of their diet again. Even if I use it to lose half of my goal weight loss, so I can really take exercise to the next level, I would very much like to.
If you spot this post, and know where I can find it, please let me know.

Hi,
My name is Karen and I just joined the group. I am looking for the Meltdown plan from the Form U3 weight loss program, I did the program back in the early 90s and did very well on the meltdown level. If someone would share it with me I would very much appreciate it.
Thank you and good luck to all

I did the Form U 3 diet program in the 90's and I lost around 40 lbs. I would love to do it again but I've since thrown the information away. Could you email me the diet and I would like to try it again.

Hi all and welcome. I Started this team to help me and others while doing the diet program from the Form You 3 center. This was a diet that was out back in the late "80's" early to mid "90's". It really worked for me and so i have decided to do it again. I do have the diet if anyone would like to check it out, but what ever diet you are doing this team is here to help you out.

Rebecca
