LipoVite Shots and Weight Loss

I started a diet in Jan. 2012 to lose 20 pounds. I knew it would be tough going since I’m only 5’1″. But I had made up my mind to get in shape one last time and then try to keep it off with a lifestyle change of being more active. Since I have been forced into semi-retirement due to the economy, I feel I have the time to exercise as well as eat healthier. But after 3 weeks of a 1200 calorie diet and exercising my butt off, I had  lost only 1 pound. When I went for my yearly physical in February, I complained to my doctor about how hard it was for me to lose weight. He suggested that I try LipoVite injections to help with my weight loss.

I’m not a fan of weight loss gimmicks like diet pills, crash or fad diets. I’m old school — calories in must be less than calories out. So I decided to attack my weight loss with knowledge about my own metabolism and get a little help from the LipoVite which is a combination of lipotropics and vitamins. One of the nurses said she takes the shots along with  Adipex pills and she had lost a lot of weight. So I decided to take the shots per my doctor’s advice and see what happened.

Lipovite Injection Results

There are 20 shots in the series. My first shot was February 6, 2012. I get the shots first thing every Monday morning. When I go into the doctor’s office, they weigh me first, then record my weight and weight loss. Then I get the shot in my hip, which burns a little for about 2-3 minutes. After about 2-3 minutes, I can taste the shot which is similar to typical vitamins you might take. So far, I haven’t experienced any unwanted side-effects.

In addition to the shots, I have been on a 1300 calorie diet and at least an hour of aerobic exercise 6 days a week. Some days I exercise for 2 hours.

  • Feb 6. – Shot 1
  • Feb 13. – Shot 2, no weight loss
  • Feb 20. – Shot 3, 2 pound weight loss since last week
  • Feb 27. – Shot 4, 1 pound weight loss since last week, 3 pounds total
  • Mar 5 – Shot 5, 0 weight loss, 3 pounds total
  • Mar 12 – Shot 6, 1 pound weight loss, 4  pounds total
It’s now May and I gave up on the shots. I did not see that the shots had an affect and they took too much time to get. You can’t make an appointment, you just sit until they can see you. I think the diet and exercise was the cause for the weight loss and not the shots.

I’ve read that the results are cumulative, meaning the effects of the LipoVite build up the longer you take the shots.

Here is the info sheet I was given about Lipo-Vite:

Lipo-Vite Injection Information

Lipotropic means fat loving. Basically lipotropics are substances that  liquefy or homogenize fats.

What are the main functions of lipotropics?

  • They increase the production of lecithin by the liver. This helps to make cholesterol soluble, thereby lessening cholesterol deposits in blood vessels and decreasing the choice of gallstone formation. (Gallstones are made of cholesterol).
  • They prevent the accumulation of fats in the liver. A fatty liver can cause sluggish liver function.
  • They detoxify amines (by-products of protein metabolism) This is important for people on a high protein diet.
  • They increase resistance to disease. They help the thymus gland carry out its anti-disease function by stimulating the production of autibodies. Stimulating the growth of phagocytes, which surround and gobble up viruses and microbes. They also recognize and destroy foreign and abnormal tissue.

What are some of the important functions of the individual Lipotropics?

  • Choline: Metabolizes fat.
    Deficiency of Choline can lead to cirrhosis and fatty degeneration of the liver and hardening of the arteries (arterioscleroais). It is used today for ailments such as gall bladder trouble, diabetes, Muscular Dystrophy, Glaucoma, senility and memory problems (forgetfulness). Choline detoxifies amines that are the by-product.
  • Inositol: Deficiency of Inositol can lead to hair loss. It works with Vitamin E to facilitate its actions in treatment of Muscular Dystrophy. It is used in nerve aud muscle disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis aud Cerebral Palsy. Caffeine may cause depletion of Inositol.
  • Methionine: It works with Choline to detoxify amines, which are the by-products of protein metabolism. It acts as a catalyst for Choline and Inositol, opening up their functions. Along with Choline it aids in reducing liver fat and protecting the kidneys.

How are Lipotropics Supplied?

They are supplied in shot form. Doctors generally prescribe I cc per week injected intramuscularly. (Mobilizes the fat and helps to break it down, it has Vitamin B6 to help you lose your water weight and Vitamin B12 which boosts your energy level.

How much do Lipo-Vite Injections Cost?

Lipovite injections are done in a twelve-week period and cost $200 for the twelve shots. Patients generally come in once a week to get injections and weigh.

    I am 58 years old and my weight had gotten out of control. Could not lose weight no matter what kind of diet and exercise I did. I started the lipovite shots and have lost 2 pounds per week. I do not exercise much at all except for short walks, but in 4 weeks I am down 8 pounds just by keeping my calories to 1,000 to 1,200 per day. Love the shots, it’s the only thing that has worked for me.

  7. I’m starting my injection tomorrow, will update blog this time next week 😉

  8. I still like derrimax. It’s all natural and I’ve gotten 1.5 inches of growth. Maybe I’ll try this one day but for now, I’m good

    It does work and the capsule form is what I take. Ive had more energy and have lost a few pounds as long as I follow an exercise regime and watch my caloric intake. I think the shots work better for weight loss as I have seen a man at my gym whom got the shots and looked amazing and was like one of those before and after photo’s. He told me about the capsule. Saved me time and money. It may just take longer to get results, but its cheaper and I don’t have to have an appointment. So, there you go- for those that have never used lipovite!

  10. Where do we buy this and what is the cost of it.

  11. The shots worked for me i lost 20 pounds in one month. They said you have to be active for at least five mins a day and it could been simple by just working in tge house it helped me alot and i felt a lot better about my self and my weight never came back till i got pregnant again with my second child

  12. Well done Sonja. Im in my early 30’s and only have two kids and can relate to the constant hectic schedule, however, being a Mom of 4 without having to loose your sanity ( by what i can read, you are far from it as well, hahaha) and making time to go to the gym as well as keeping up with the daily routine/programme of ur kids, i take my hat off to you.
    No soul can ever understand wat it feels like an overweight mom with too little time to invest in researching something that can assist with your weight loss goal. It eventually becomes depressing. Thanks for sharing your experience and even more so, thank you for the motivation 🙂

    I started my shots 3 weeks ago. The first shot did nothing but added some energy. I thought to myself “what a waste” but decided to give it one more try. Week 2 I lost 8 pounds, the 3rd week (this past week) I lost 7 pounds. I go to the gym at least 3 days per week and had been for months, only to lose a few pounds and gain them back (plus extra). I get my shot every Tuesday. The Dr was shocked today (Tuesday) I was doing so well with it. He said others had always quit before any noticeable difference. I am very pleased with it. I have 4 kids, i’m in my mid 30’s and was really feeling hopeless. I also do mix mine with Adipex, but was already on the adipex and that alone wasn’t doing it for me. I am a very busy mom with all my kids activities we do a whole lot of “ball field” eating and drive thru’s which is never a good thing. Lipovite has even changed my way of eating, I no longer want the junk food, snacks and I no longer stress or boredom eat. I drink only water and increase my gym workouts by 5 reps each week. I would like to stress, when I started all of this, just walking alone made me out of breath…my weight had gotten very out of control. Hope this helps.

  14. IV been taking the shots for 3 weeks now. How long does it take to show results of weight loss?

  15. I’m starting this shot in Friday the 14th of August! I will come back give info on my results!

  16. Where do I buy Lipovite injections and for how much?
