Completed WeightNot

I have officially completed Reveal MedSpa’s WeightNot diet program, as of today. My final weigh-in saw me at 199.0 lbs. I spent three months on the program and lost a grand total of 65.4 lbs during that time.

I will write up a full review of my impressions of WeightNot some time next week. The teaser, however, is that while my time on the program benefited me greatly, I do not credit WeightNot with having much to do with my weight loss.

I also have some final photos that I will strive to post soon.

Lastly, I’ve also finished up week 3 of C25K and should be starting up the week 4 schedule tonight.

      That’s not completely true. I certainly lost a ton of weight because I was on WeightNot. In a nutshell, I give the credit to the low calorie diet, not the vitamin supplements. And it’s the supplements that make WN what it is. Otherwise, you’ve just got a rather typical low-cal, low-fat, low-carb diet. Basic thermodynamics tells us that if you expend more energy than you consume, you have to burn fat to make up for the difference. That’s the magic.

    I am on weightNot now, and downing ALL THESE PILLS are getting the best of me! Is the amount of weight you loss attainable WITHOUT the pills? I can do once a day, but three times a day is a BIT much!

      The WeightNot diet will work just fine w/out all the pills.

      As I’ve commented a number of times, the pills are not the part of the diet that makes it work, it’s the low calorie intake that does it. The pills’ contribution is supposedly to help make you feel better, less hungry, healthier, etc…

      I actually ended up taking my supplements four separate times a day. Early morning (before breakfast), late morning (around 11 AM), afternoon (2 PM), and evening (7 PM).

      If all of the pills are getting to you, here’s one suggestion: ditch the coconut oil. Or, rather, stop taking the pills and then allow yourself one tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil per day to cook with instead. A WN councilor will, of course, tell you not to do this. They’ll preach that any deviation from the program at all is a no-no. But I say “we’re all grown ups here.”

    I was really contemplating signing up but realized that it was too expensive for me. If you are saying I can do by cutting calories, I will be estastic. Although, I have tried before and lost each time. I did want something that just said if you eat this three times a day, you will be sucessful. I wish someone had a plan that directed one to each they types of food and whammoo, weight would come off.

      Forget pills, chemicals, etc…. Go with Weight Watchers. The new pointsplus program is SO EASY. My husband and I signed up– only been doing it a few weeks… the weight loss is slow..like 2-3 lbs a week, but I never feel hungry. You can eat whatever you want, it just teaches you about “portion control” and you start to actually pay attention to what you put into your mouth. and it’s only 18 bucks a month for the online program. very affordable. Good Luck to you ;-)

    The weight not diet is not safe without the supplements. A low calorie diet can be dangerous if your body isn’t getting all the nutrients it needs. That is the primary value of the pills, not to mention appetite suppressants, etc. All i know is I have been on WeightNot for 3 weeks now and my hair, skin, and nails are amazing. I want to continue the nutritional supplements after I am done with the program!

      I’m not totally sure that I agree with the notion that WN is unsafe without the supplements, but I can’t argue with results. Glad the program is going well!

      I agree with BangFat here…. You should be able to get all of the nutrients you need from the food you are eating. If the diet plan will literally make you “malnourished” without throwing tons of vitamins down your throat, then it probably isn’t the way to go. Ever tried juicing?

    I’m getting close to the end of my Weight Not cycle with reasonable success – 14 pounds since St Patricks day. I was most curious about your “flying solo.” I starting do some searches trying to find other sources for the supplements, but have to say that searches for things like “opti-lipo” don’t seem to find anything usefull. Although I was able to figure out where metamusil could be substituted. How did you go about asembling your supplement list?

      you can buy suplements on Amazon. Vitamins C (1000 ug) Vitamin D (5000 ug) vitamin B complex and some probiotics and you are set. The rest you can get by eating as many leafy greens as possible. Keep your carbs at or below 50/day and eat berries and apples for snacks. dont eat anything proccessed. Shop on the outside edges of the grocery store and only buy REAL food-butter-cheese-nothing fake or ‘low fat’ you will lose weight as fast as this program and feel better than you ever have!

    WeightNot’s customer service is REALLY REALLY bad! You pay hundreds of dollars and they tell you it will take two weeks to ship. Then, when you call, they say it’s more like three weeks. A total of 4.5 weeks later, you get the order and it is supposed to be for 30 days but they only send 15. When you complain that you did not get what you paid for, they say, they will over night the rest. It does not arrive until 5 days later, so you cannot follow the supplement program because you have none left! You speak with the customer service people and they assure you the product is shipped but they fail to say that this shipment will be short. So, you finally get the order and it too is wrong because with this shipment, you get only 8 days when it was supposed to be 15. You call and complain again and they say, they will send you the rest before you run out.

    I am so thoroughly disgusted with this company’s customer service. I hope some other company comes along and puts them out of business.
