Slender Wonder or Dr. Cohen?

Post by elleznom on Tue 15 Jan 2013 - 12:56

I just need a boost to start with...

I know some did (do) slender wonder, some did (do) Dr. Cohen, I am still in two minds about it. I want to loose 20kg's before I turn 30, which is January next year and the sooner the better. I have really had some emotional issues after the accident and I have gained 12kg's since July. I am so pissed at myself for it, but what can you do? (Hubby gained 10kg's, so we both took some hits)

I have also recently learned that my insulin levels are too high and was put on Glucophage.

Any advise?

I am in the same boat, after D's asthma attack and being hospitalized I started picking up weight rapidly, I feel horrible and its like the weight wont budge.

Cohen, excellent program but very strict and you have to be committed 200%, I just do not have it in me to start with cohen again. I can handle the tiny portions but the yoghurt, egg, cucumber and tomato and everything tasting like spray and cook Puke makes my stomach turn...

but I have to do something, and soon..

Lilly dis kak.

Ek voel so goor, maar dis asof my lyf my heeltemal gefail het in die laaste 6 maande.

Aan die een kant voel ek, Slender Wonder (ek soek die spuite) net om mee te begin. Ek hou van oefen (op my eie) draf, WII, ens, en ons volg normaalweg eintlik 'n baie gesonde eet program. Ek soek net iets vir 'n "boost"

Ek neig na Slender...

Definitely Cohen, I was also looking at Slender Wonder until I saw one of my consultants gain most of her weight back. With Cohen, you don't gain if you watch what you eat. I have another four months to go on this Cohen session with about 20kg to lose, so I'm sticking 100%. I just want to be done by the time wonter starts‼

Monz i would also suggest Cohens because it's what i know and i don't know much about Slender Wonder, to be honest you can gain your weight back after any diet, you just have to be careful. I also find that if i don't watch what i eat then the scale is up, it's a pain in the ass but i suppose that is just the way it's going to be if i want to keep the weight off.
Good luck with your choice!!
PS once you've kept to the plan for two weeks it does get easier and easier!

Do you use the glucophase for insulin resistance? or for diabetes? I used it for insulin restistance but dropped it when I started cohen. My IR was related to my weight, and when that went down, my IR disappeared. But I know its not suitable for diabetics.

You should be able to do Weigh Less?

PS: Can't wait to see you Michmac...haven't seen you since you got to goal weight‼

Insulin, but I only started last week on it. I don't want to give it up just yet. (Such a waste of money, blood tests and such, I'll rather use it)

I will try Slender for now, can do while on Glucophage.

I've done Weigh less before, my mom has been for 13 years now, I think it's one of those things you are kind of "sick" off, cause I ate like that for too long... Weigh less makes me cringe...

Good Luck Monz with what you choose. I think it is a good idea to get back into dieting with a bang. also I think when you can see the results you work harder to stick with it.

Slender Wonder is not bad Monz. I also know people who have done it and have maintained. Like Mich also says - any diet you can pick up all your weight. I am an excellent example. Lost on Weigh-Less, dietician, ag you name it, and picked it up again cause I just never watched what I ate.

Good luck - it will definately work!

Jy weet ek's 'n Slender fan, en ek't rede! Ek't sonder major effort 15kg in 12wke verloor. Die hele ritueel van inspuit ens motivate jou elke dag. Jy verloor in die eerste 3 dae maklik 3 - 4 kg. Ek het 5.5 in my eerste week verloor! My baas was met verlof en toe sy terugkom na net een week was sy stom geslaan.
Almal het binne die eerste week die verskil gesien. Jy word nie honger nie, die kos is lekker, jy hoef nie heeltyd te peusel aan blare en crap soos met weigh less nie, jy drink jou shake wat jou lank versadig hou. (ek het dit half 8 soggens na my spuit en handvol pille gedrink) en eers half 1 begin dink ek sal seker sometime weer moet eet! Dan't ek myself gedwing om 'n appel te eet voor ek huistoe gaan en weer een na aandete sodat my suiker nie rondneuk nie, (ek is ook insulien weerstandig).
Ek het begin october opgehou en weeg nog dieselfde, 1kg op, 1kg af. ek eet wat ek wil, binne glad nie streng perke, en as ek dink ek het dalk overboard gegaan is ek vir een dag weer baie soet, klim dan op die skaal en no damage done.
Slender Wonder is magic, end of story! Dit 'reset jou metabolisme' om te werk soos die skinny biatches wat eet wat hulle wil en maer bly!

Vergelyk net bietjie pryse met Lean Again'. My tannie het ook in 3 maande 20kg verloor met dit, bygesê sy is maklik 100kg oorgewig...maar dit werk op dieselfde principal, spuit, pille, shake.

Ek was bleikbaar lucky om 'net' R1800pm te betaal vir slender, ander dokters vra tot R2500pm of selfs meer. My tannie bly in Pta Noord en haar huisdokter vind sy toevallig uit, doen Lean Again en sy betaal R1800pm.

Per maand???? Hel nee Dr cohen kos soveel vir ses maande en ek het 15 kg in 9 weke verloor. Michmac het 66 in 9 maande verloor. Maar as mens nie die commitment het nie werk dit nie. Ek het net op die punt gekom waar ek weier om pille en spuitmiddels te gebruik, dis nie volhoubaar nie en mens moet jou liggaaam leer om natuurlik gewig te verloor. oudat ek Cohen doen besef ek Weigh less is eintlik baie maklik en easy, en mens het baie kossoorte om van te kies.

hello girlies!!!

I also ventured on here today because I am considering something drastic like Slender Wonder.

My friend lost 15kgs last year on it and over december only gained 2kgs. I gained more than her. So, I definitely think that you gain back weight if you dare to let go too much on your eating... Doesnt matter what diet you do.

After reading this, I am going to make my appointment! We can starve together monz!

Good luck Gabs!

I am on stimulation phase, so stuffing my face until tomorrow with all that is fatty and sweet and "bad" for you. I think you actually "cure" yourself of wanting to binge after this, I already feel somewhat sick! Pizza for lunch! Nom nom nom!
