Read in newspaper, straits times on Sunday tht a man managed to slim down via acupuncture frm 111kg to 76kg.......
i am new here and very interested to your acupuncture program, you lost 18kg ? that is very good, if i can lose 10kg i will be happy.
had emailed you yesterday evening for the contact because i want to go for consultation with your consultant. but hasn't get your reply yet. looking forward on your reply. if you never receive my email please let me know thank you
sorry for late reply. yes i had replied you of the contact and some details. you can call up to book for consultation. ic, because i need to lose at least 17kg so that is normal for me to lose 17kg. as for you may be you no need to. just go for consultation checking and the body analysis test to see how is your body and fat%
you can add me in msn too firstname.lastname@example.org
Back from holiday.. Did eat quite alot of stuff but luckily did not put on weight, still able to maintain. anyway welcome to this club for those new comer.. Must jia you and work hard ..
just my experience.
2 yrs ago i did my sessions at (i'm guessing) the same place at marine parade, the acupuncture package. Paid close to $3K. The whole program worked - well kind of,
a) i had to take some chinese traditional medication pill thing to 'detox' daily, and make me poo more often.
b) i had to go through a 5 day detox program which was drinking this powder dissolved in water. This made me poo my stomach empty. I had to detox this way for 3 days weekly in the duration of the acupuncture program. It's actually just a laxative, really.
c) i was asked to take appetite suppressants.
I did the body weight/fat analysis, and I must say I was very impressed and convinced with their convincing explanation of how to effectively lose weight. However, each acupuncture session lasted around 30 mins. About 6 needles (can't really recall) inserted, then hooked up to a electro-wave thing machine. Perhaps it had certain effectiveness, but anyway I didn't complete my 10 sessions of acupuncture, because I knew I was losing weight/water mostly due to the detox and pills, the acupuncture was more like a feature they needed to add to justify the large amounts people pay. Common sense, detox drink + diarrohea = lose weight.
I'm skeptical because I've tried it, and my weight bounced back once I stopped the pills and detox. And if it was supposed to work, the program should solely feature acupuncture (which i think they do offer, but also promised that it is not as effective) and not with all the other fanciful pills and detox program.
If you have the spare cash to try out, sure, go for it, but if you're really hopeful, and need to pay via installment and feel the pinch, I'd say your success rate is higher at the gym.
hi shi_san_yee, you should complete your 10sessions,dont waste it and you did not complete it where got effect? Did you do review? it suppose to test out your fat, muscle and water. you shld do the test for review too. so can know what you lost. anyway it is free in the program mah.
ermm, meaning to say you did not continue program after 2 weeks detox? weight gain might be muscle gain, i also had some muscle gain but fat loss because they not only helping losing weight but is fat.
luckily i did follow everything and lost 10+ kg , had completed the program for few months and i still maintaining.
my advise to those ppl who started or going to start: just continue do not give up in between, any question just ask consultant and doctor.
tried gym, it does not works as when i stop to exercise my fat bounce back.
Hi ooi, long time never see your post. Happy CNY to you.
ya i agree with ooi, when i was on detox, i felt my pants loosen and i do have about 4kg of fat loss on first review, may be was after give birth i still have little water retention so i did lose little water too.
after detox will be the diet planning, eat more meat and vegetables all these depending on how they plan base on the review result.
i feel quite healthy and now more careful with diet as i had family line with high cholestrol so need to watch put on diet too. i completed programe for half an year(managed to lose 17-18kg) and still maintaining.

Healthy weight loss or not.. not very sure.
ermmm, initially was quite tired and i tend to sleep earlier, anyway need to keep at least 7 hours of sleep otherwise will have muscle loss and got to drink at least 2 litre of water. but still need to eat, not starve yourself. not, they not looking at the weight loss but is fat loss, i still need to gain some muscle weight. how many time of review you went? if you go review by right should have idea about the muscle and fat loss thing.
did you say muscle? how to gain muscles without exercise? never heard before.
actually my gf also just mentioned this to me.. same place LIF (or isit LFI?). she say if i want, she will sign me up, using her friend name to do refer, so her friend get commission lorr. but im still skeptical, cos its not exactly the traditional kinda acupuncture.
Hi mehmeh, i better to go back for analysis after CNY but probably on march, busy with my sick baby nicole.
i did not exercise during program , but muscle grow,fat down is the correct diet (protein), acupuncture and colostrum help.

yup. n when you buy any products, the person who initially recommended you gets commission. it's a little like MLM. My sister in law was the one who recommended me, and even she did not do the acupuncture, only took the pills. True enough, sure lose weight from the rate we poo.
Actually the assorted products can be bought from GNC and guardian, just that the 'consultants' will persuade you to get from them direct for obvious reasons.
my friend ask me to join, then later if got results, intro ppl to join, then i also get commission.. lol~
i tomorrow review! i very nervous! although pants never tighten but i still worried because of steamboat all these during CNY, they let me have 4 days of celebration.
Really have to cheong for the slimming from now onwards. cannot waste $
To me, it does not matter wherever is it MLM anot.. As long as it help me to slim down and help to maintain for almost a year is fine to me (FYI i already lost almost 10KG) . Anyway in the program, got consultant to guide us along hence will get to know at which stage we are doing right or wrong. Jia you for all of them who is on the ways to slim down
hmm it's great to have such determination ladies! I honestly thought when these consultants claim acupuncture helps to lose weight, my simple lay-man ideas expected exactly that -- acupuncture to help to lose weight.... and keep it off, not just for a yr or so.
I've read that the body does, already, in its natural defense, detox on its own (or else many of our bodies would already have been toxin-filled and broken down). Oh well, just my 2 cents worth plus past experience (with a particular mlm company in marine parade).
yes, i agree, i managed to lose 17-18kg through the program after i gave birth and on the acupuncture program i tried my best to follow whatever guidance that provided. with positive mindset and follow, will see result, my sister In law, friends and few slimming friends here did slim down too.
