Things I didnt know when I registered...

- they take 2 lbs off your weight for clothes. Now I know why this scale always read lower then my house scale. Guess it doesnt matter because its consistent, but still.

- after the vitamin and the appetite suppressant, nothing else is included after the first visit. The fat burner is like 25$ a bottle where i live!! Anyone have a good alternative? Or with the Calcium? I already found a cheaper good quality Omega 3. I am kind of bummed because they insisted 'its all included except the B6 shot' a few times... oh well . Shoulda read the fine print. but for 12# gone in 2 weeks I dont really care

I use the Medi fat burners (I like them because they don't make me jittery), but I have read that others on this website are using Mega Green-T Fat Burners, which can be purchased at most drugstores or Wal-Mart type stores near the protein powders & shakes.

I have always used my own Caltrate product that my OB/GYN recommended that I pick up at the drugstore.

I like the 2 pound reduction. I have found that my clothes do usually weigh around 2 pounds, so I don't feel like it more truthful since I really only care what my body weighs, not my clothing. I always wear the same type of clothes to my weigh ins for consistency.

Hi. I have no Medi clinic by me so I'm doing this on my own.

I use Green Tea fat burners. They leave me jittery if I take them at night so I do 2 for breakfast and 2 in the afternoon before 3. I also get B12, Omega, and calcium from there. I take Iron since I noticed since being on this WOE I'm bruising more easily which may be due to anemia.

Hope this helps.

Hey Ortal, I just happen to see this and thought it was interesting. I have a Tanita scale at home and that is what they use in the office. One day when I didn't eat till weigh in I weighed the same in the morning at home as I did at the clinic. The next week I ate before going to the clinic and the scale at the clinic showed me as a pound heavier than when I weighed at home. I wore the same scrubs for both weigh ins at the clinic and my birthday suit for both at home. So I'm pretty sure that at least at my clinic they don't take off anything for clothes.

Ortal,

Sorry I don't have an alternate to offer for the fat burner, but you are welcome to the bottle they gave me last week at my first visit - I'm not taking them. It's sealed and unopened from the Medi Clinic in Johnston RI. I'll send it to you if you want them.

For the calcium, I take Citrical - have been for years and they seem to be working (I don't drink milk) - my OB ordered a rountine bone scan in March which was fine.
