    Hi I have started the Body Trim Shakes today and Was wondering if I can stay on the trimsition stage until I am satisfied with weightloss then move to the next stage after that?

    Hi Nicole,

    Ultimately the shakes are not recommended as a total diet replacement or for long term use. We recommend using them in addition to well- balanced, nutritious meals.

    The first phase of the program (days 1- 3) involves 3 shakes a day
    The second phase of the program (days 4- 7) involves 2 shakes a day
    The final phase of the program involves 1 or no shakes a day

    We taper off the use of the shakes gradually as we introduce balanced and nutritious meals which are ultimately going to provide you with the best source of nutrients.

    While many people do lose an encouraging amount of weight in the first phase of the program the best way to lose weight is gradually, so the focus shouldn’t be how much you can lose in the first few days but more how much you can lose over the next few weeks as this is where the sustainable and meaningful weight loss happens.

    The shakes won’t provide you with everything you need long term and the sooner you introduce the right kinds of nutritious whole foods into your diet the sooner you can start creating the healthy eating habits that will ultimately lead to long term weight loss as well as good health.

    I hope this is helpful and please let me know if you have any further questions.

    I have a question. I am using his i place of other shake replacements on direction of must lose weight (large amount) due to medical complications on going since long time now.

    I am being told to stay on these, as nutrition is not the issue here, but getting the weight off is the ultimate goal in the next 6 months in order to stay away from surgery.

    I have been on stage 2 for few weeks and feeling good. It gives all I need, and supplemented with nutritious salads and protein snacks of tuna etc.

    As the alternative is an alternate liquid diet only, I am thinking this should be a good balance between the two?

    Hi Frizz,

    You might want to discuss this with the specialist who is advising you to stay on these shakes.

    We generally don’t recommend relying on the shakes long term for the reasons outlined above.

    Kind Regards,

    BT Nutritionist 🙂
