Just started yesterday with the B-12 for weight loss.  I do see
a difference on the scale today.  What type of foods are you eating.  I am going to Dr. Gupta in Greenbelt, MD but the diet
program stinks. HELP

Congradulations on the weight loss.  I need to find out what
you are eating on the plan to lose weight.  My doctor in greenbelt gave a bad diet plan.  You can only eat meat at lunch and no more meat for the rest of the day.  I just started and
need to find another diet plan to use.  I will keep going to get
the B-12 shot, but need another diet plan. Help

I hate to tell you this, but you are losing weight because you are on a low calorie diet and are exercising.  B12 SHOTS DO NOT CAUSE PEOPLE TO LOSE WEIGHT.  They may make you feel better and give you an extra boost of energy, but I promise you, B12 shots do not cause weight loss!  I know this, I have studied this.  Ask any MD.

Hello Everyone.  I am in the DC/MD area.  People have referred me to Dr. Gupta in Greenbelt because there is no physical given for the B12 shot.  I will be going to Dr. Beale's office in DC.  I go for my physical on July 14th.  I'm very excited and am anxious to see how the B12 shots work for me, but I've never heard anything negative about the shots.  Does anyone have any negative to say i.e., side effects or anything?

I have not tried the shots but have heard (as we all have) several positives and negatives.  What I have not heard about is: side effects.  Additionally, if one receives these shots and reduces weight, is the weight gained again once the shots are stopped.  Please advise.

Thanks for sharing what to eat.  Going to Dr. Gupta but the plan
is bad.  There are no food choices just follow the menu.  It is not a good plan.  I am going just for the B-12 shots.  Read too much about the medication and it scares me.

Apparently there are no side effects to the B vitamin shots (from what I understand - I'm not a doctor) unless you have a certain medical condition - I've forgotten which one - but that is why you get checked by a doctor first. It seems pretty safe.

It's the pharmaceutical suppressants and hormones - versus vitamins - that I would be more worried about.

As to putting the weight back on;
B vitamin cocktails aren't magic. If you lose the weight the diet worked for you.
If the weight goes back on, it's not the fault of the diet.

The vitamin cocktails help the body do it's job. Making the diet work is about determination, and I suppose, a litle luck.

I should know, I failed enough times over the years because I didn't change my eating habits after I lost the weight. Hopefully this time will be different (for me and you too).

Good luck
