Has anyone any experience of the Edinburgh clinic as thinking of joining there?

Afternoon all, l'm thinking of starting this at Leeds soon (l'm moving over there this weekend) - is anyone going to that clinic and how are you finding it?

I am so pleased to see that some more people have just started the Alizonne diet - I went for my first treatment on 11th March and have now had three weigh-ins. I was delighted that on Wednesday I had already lost a stone! I have five stone to lose and was told that it would take 22 - 28 weeks, so I think I am on course.

I find the sachets are all right - particularly love the hot chocolate and also the vanilla dessert ones (I have that with some stewed rhubarb for breakfast). I need to go and start my evening meal now - will be having the sheep's cheese with aubergine (a recipe from my book) which is lovely. Will be interested to hear all about how you get on and offer mutual support.

Hello everybody,

I got so inspired by the posts on this blog that I went in for my consultation last week and started the Alizonne diet today. I have about 4 stones to lose and the doctor told me that it should take about 15 weeks based on my BMR.

This seems to good to be true, does it really work this way...can I really lose this much weight in just 15 weeks? I plan to exercise daily to speed up the process... has anybody seen better results incorporating exercise into the mix?

Please someone suggest good sachets, I hated the cappuccino this morning...eugh!

I went for my consultaion yesterday in London and have an appointment to start on the diet tomorrow, I am so excited!!! I am 15 stones and the Gp of Alizonne said they estimate that I could lose this in 22 weeks. They are extremely though with blood test etc I even had to put a contraption in my mouth to monitor my breathing for 10mins this the tells you what your calorie intake is. It is expensive but it will be worth it in the end as I have high blood pressure so need to lose the weigh. Let me know if there is anyone out there who is doing this diet also, it would be good for the support. x

Hello, I was hoping someone can help. I have my first consultation booked for 2nd April (£120) in London. I have just over 4 stone to lose.
While I am happy to get the doctor to do blood tests, I alreadu know I have mild fatty liver as I had some tests done a couple of months ago.

Will this have any affect on me starting the Alizonne diet and therapy? I hope they don't turn me down!!
I also have a borderline BP (high). My diet isn't terrible but I think my metabolism is pretty slow. In addition I only started to gain weight when I was 12 after I was given steroids / cortisones to fight a serious illness. I've been well for many years but weight has yo-yo'ed from 10 to 15stone. Would like to get a handle on it once and for all.
Would like to try for a baby once healthier smile

Any advise, tips most gratefully received.

Hi I know its been a while since you posted this up, but i am about to start the diet, well I have got my appointment on the 13th of Feb.

I just wanted to ask before i really start to pay money out, how are you now?have you lost and kept the weight off. My problem is keeping it off and I even booked a gastric band but I have bottled out because of my son.

Hope you are well

Hi everyone,

I am a new member, hope you are well. This diet is amazing by the sound of it. I pick up a leaflet on a easyjet flight. So far there has been so many positive feedback.

I am at my investigating process at the moment. I rang the clinic and I now have a booklet regarding the program. The price is the most shocking aspect of it all. £220.00 per week after paying after paying £120.00 for the consultation in advance, blood test is £97.20 and the first instalment is £386.00 .. then after £220.00 per week. The lady advised that I must have £1000. when I start the regim.

Any ideas how we can get this reduced or spread over a couple of months..

Good luck to everyone that has started the program. I have to loose 3 stones roughtly.

Wendy Woo

Yes there is another thread somewhere. I lost 5.5 stone in a few months, now about 10 weeks off it and I've maintained. 2 of my friends are currently doing it - one just under 4 stone in about 3/4 months and one 3 stone in 3 months. Yes its bloody hard work and expensive but it works !

wow derevkofan that is brilliant. hopefully the salt will help to regulate your BP.

Yesterday i drank most of my 2ltrs at work, and only had a small bottle of water for dinner and a green tea, so last night i didnt wake up to do my 3 toilet breaks.

I've now lost 1stone 6lbs in 31 days. Tizi, I picked up everything on my consultation day but didn't start the diet until a few weeks later as I wanted to get xmas out of the way. The Dr reviewed my latest bloods yesterday to identify any problem areas. I suffer from low BP anyway and this diet has lowered it further so my salt tablets have been increased to try to raise the BP. Not often you get told to increase the amount of salt you eat these days, is it?? Still felt nauseous yesterday but didn't actually vomit so I suppose that's one good thing! I have lost weight around my face but I'm still oddly in the same size clothes as before as the weight loss has been fairly evenly distributed so no one area has lost enough for it to be noticed yet. I certainly don't look any different in the mirror to myself yet. I think once my clothes become loose and I can start thinking about wearing jeans in the next size down I'll feel better and it will all be worth it - I hope! How's your fitness drive going, Kurves?

kurves Tue 26-Jan-10 10:27:52

Derevkofan I am happy about your weight loss but worried about the side effects that you are experencing i do hope that it gets better is there any thing that they can do about the low blood pressure. how much have you lost so far.

Friendlypizzaeater Mon 25-Jan-10 16:36:43

derevkofan - thats just 21 days grin you can do it !!! 5lbs is brilliant - have you noticed yet ? have people around you noticed ?

Friendlypizzaeater Mon 25-Jan-10 16:35:05

No I had consultation on Monday and went back to clinic on Wednesday for a treatment and picked up my sachets then.

Tizi Mon 25-Jan-10 14:49:10

Hi all,

Just booked my consultation, i'm going on 24th Feb so really excited now

Was told that after the doctor has seen me I can buy the supplements, starter pack and first week of food.
Has anyone else done this after the consultation without waiting for blood results?

derevkofan Mon 25-Jan-10 14:39:24

Saw dr for review today and he has increased my salt tablets and told me to have 6 instead of 5 sachets a day as despite that being more calories it will make me lose weight more quickly because I have such a high metabolic rate. Had lost 5lbs since last Tuesday at my weigh in as well so I keep thinking that if I can put up with no sleep and all the peeing plus dizziness due to my blood pressure being too low for a bit longer I will get to my target. I need to lose another 5.3kg before I can go on to phase 2 so fingers crossed that that will not take any longer than 3 weeks! There are a lot of possible side effects to the programme including nausea, dizziness, lack of energy, skin rashes, hair loss and gallstones but they obviously don't affect everyone (gallstones is less than 1%) I'm getting used to which sacehts I like more now so it's easier to prepare for the day and order my sachets when I go to the clinic. Have had a few buffets and things at work where I've been there with a sachet and salad but I've not been too tempted! Could still kill for a sandwich, though!

I was warned that I would get a headache from all the detoxing - which I got yesterday but touch wood been ok today. Just had the mushroom soup for dinner - was ok, but would be nice as an ingredient with some of the veg ....

Am just off to look for a receipe for aubergines

cenglish Sat 23-Jan-10 12:21:41

oh nice i will try that tonight for my late night drink or maybe leave it till the morning as it will have coffee in it.

tried the hotchoc again last night, but added abit more water and didnt heat the life out of it in the microwave and it tasted lovely.

day 2 today, and have a bit of a headache, but i havent drank much water this morning so i am puttin it down to that

Friendlypizzaeater Sat 23-Jan-10 10:47:08

I used a whole packet, made it up with 200ml water and poured it into a cup, used the beaker thing to make a strong black coffee (washing last bit of the vanilla out) and added to cup, stirred and really enjoyed !
