Melt-Down was 4 days (longer if you had more than 100lbs to lose then you stayed on it until you stopped losing).
Level 1 was the most restrictive and was 1 week.
Level 2-this one is harder to remember but I think it was 4 weeks
Level 3-was until goal weight (or plateau)
We would start people back to Meltdown and Level 1, 2, ect. if they hit a really bad plateau (after Level 3).
Level 4 was maintenance

I am studying this and working on mindset, since mindset is the most important part of any plan
I plan to start meltdown tomorrow if anyone wants to join in here as a support system for each other~

I am going with day one of Meltdown today.
I am hoping some of the ones on the main board, that wanted to form a support system, will show up so I'm not talking to myself here!

Glad you are here to join me "roza"!!!

Day 2 for me was a little rough but still on plan. I didnt weigh this morning. I bought a new digital body fat scale yesterday. It is not my friend
I am still figuring out how to use it tho so I didnt get my weight this morning. Obviously there is more to it than just stepping on and it berating me When I stepped on it all I got was an "E" in the display. Either I don't have it figured out yet...or maybe the "E" was an abbreviation for Eeeeeeeeek!

I also contacted FormYou 3 and they are going to send me their most current menu plans. I am anxious to see how much they differ from the plans in the 80's and 90's! I have always suspiscioned that Physicians weight loss and FormYou 3 are one in the same. I am pretty sure that I was dead on. I belonged to Physicians online a couple of years ago. It was so much like FY 3 and when I emailed asking for copies of their plan, the same lady got back to me who works for Physicians. (I still get emails from Physicians with her name on them). I will keep you posted on that!

gosh, isnt this kind of high in carbohydrates ( and low fat) for LCF? The fruits given are pretty high in sugars and there seems to be more carbs in it than most of us can get away with so I am wondering if you can explain to those of us not familiar with this plan what kind of physical/chemical food reaction it has on the body and how its originators came up with it? I guess it isnt clear to me how it is supposed to work to melt the weight off. I love all the fruits it allows but as a diabetic, I know it is not for me,: but it does sound interesting and very different.

I have been flipping back and forth if I should re-join Formu 3 here in PA. I live by a center and they are advertising 60 days for $99.00. I was on the plan years ago and lost tons of weight. Gained it back and rejoined about 3 years ago and lost some weight but never stuck to it like in the past. I am on the fence if I should pay the $99 bucks to lose about 20 pounds. Any suggestions? By the way, Physicians Weightloss and Formu 3 is owned by the same guy.

Hi everyone. I found your site while searching for the old Nutra-Bolic Weight Reduction System. I lived in Western PA most of my life. I was on the plan way back in 1988 and I lost about 118 pounds in a little over a year. I have the original Nutra-bolic levels for the plan (before it became Formu 3). Originally, if you had other people join you got points or bucks towards your own membership. I ended up with a bunch of people from work joining and I had a lifetime membership (LOL). Also, I did not use the supplements, due to costs. Unless you have really slow metabolism, if you follow this plan you should see results. Another thing I recall, you could do the melt down and then start on level 4 - the most food. As long as you lost weight, you could stay on level 4. Otherwise, it was back to level 1. I'd be interested in seeing the current plan and how they revamped it with all the low carb foods on the market now.

I will work on posting the new plan this week. It is nothing like the original. I contacted them and they sent me the new brochures...I was quite disappointed They are very carby I will try to start posting these when I get home from work today.
I was also on the plan in '88 but no longer have my brochures. Could you post the ones you have?

I want to thank everyone that posted the levels for the form u 3 diet. I too joined in 92 and lost a bunch of weight. Not sure of the amount but I started in late Jan around a size 14-16 and by May I was a size 5-6! My question is since we can no longer get any of the food products, is there anything we can substitute for them in the plan? I can't remember what the food product contained. Was it protein and if so, what about substituting a protein bar or slim fast shake? The diet itself looks easy enough to follow but it looks like you about starve on level 3!!!

Hi, I just found your site today, it is great, I have all the levels for Nutrabolic and formu-3 as well as a compiled list of recipes from Nutrabolic. I had lost 40 lbs in the late 80's but have gained 3 times that back. I will be starting the diet next saturday and will post some of the old recipes when I have them pulled out. I would like to thank BetsyAnn for starting this post back in 2007.

I just went to walmart and bought the high protein slim fast drink and the kellogs protein bars. I went to the FormYou3 site and wrote down the calories/carbs/proteins/ and fat grams and what I got was the same but at a much cheaper price. It shouldn't hurt me too bad using a different product.

I started the diet again on 9/14/11 at 180lbs and am now 174.6lbs. I am 5'7 so my goal is to get down to 130 by Christmas...

Level 4 though, only one meat choice a day but 4 carb choices??

Hello
Found this site and like others, been thinking of this diet from the past. The only one that worked!

Have a ton of weight to loose.

Goal is to loose 100 pounds.

Started the meltdown today, wish me luck.

Will try to post weekly with updates as to how I am doing.

Beginning weight 268 on 9-28-11

10-5-11. 260. That is eight pounds and have not done real well at following the plan. I'm impressed!

WOW

Last post was almost a year and a half ago... I'm wondering if anybody follows this thread anymore. I was on this plan as NutraBolic at the time it was changing to Formu3. I also was looking for the plans. I am thankful to all who have been helpful both with posting the plan and the encouragements. I have the original meltdown that was the day of liquids. I also had 3 packets of recipe cards and hope I can find them after I move once again.

Reactivate?

Bumping this thread in hopes of reactivating it.

Anyone out there still semi-following the plan?
