You must remember that Dr Simeons Protocol is a "Weight Loss cure" If you just want to lose weight a 500 or even a 1000 calorie diet will do that.
Dr S says the minimum treatment is 26, 23 injections daily 3 more days of the VLCD!
On the 43 day protocol you skip one day a week but stay on the diet.
I was not looking for just wieght loss but I wanted a "cure" so I am doing Dr S protocol. Not Kevins, Not some clinics and Not some Dr that thinks he has improved it.
There is a reason I been told to post "Results not typical" because my results were so much better than those doing other programs. I have lost 110 lbs in 9 months and my wife lost over 70.
Just my Opinion.
You can see my results at http://www.whenhealthmatters.com/the_before_and_after_page.html
PS: the 43-day protocol cost about $165. That is for everything, all the supplies, shipping etc. What does your Dr want?
