After the Christmas & New Year festivities, our pharmacist has taken stock of his weight - and isn't happy! Currently he is 88kg - 13 stone 12 pounds - this equates to a BMI of 28, which is classed as over weight. Add to this a depressing waist size of 42 inch and the time has come to do something about the problem! Andrew has decided to use the Lipotrim program that we run at Wyvern Pharmacy. This is complete meal replacement - the male version is two milkshakes a day with nothing else except water and black tea or coffee. Over the course of the next few weeks, Andrew will be updating this blog with any thoughts on the Lipotrim diet, in order to help anyone thinking about going for it this year! So over to Andrew....
The one good thing - I already drink black coffee, so at least I'm not giving that up! I will miss chocolate, chinese take aways, pizza and booze, but they are what got me to this weight in the first place! I've picked Sunday as my starting day for the Lipotrim diet - it is important to be mentally ready for such a big change to lifestyle and focussing on a specific start date is a good way to prepare. I know this diet will take a lot of will power (something I'm not great at when it comes to food) but I'm hoping to lose between a stone and a stone & a half in the first month, which would put me more or less where I should be according to my height and will also reset my relationship with snacks and drink, allowing me to retake control instead of overloading my plates. If I can get rid of my belly, I'll be happy! So keep tuned, I'll update this blog with my progress as the weight comes off!
