• Alizonne Therapy and Diet Plan Review

    There is an exciting new therapy and diet plan called Alizonne Therapy sweeping the UK. This weight loss programme promises to make you reach your target weight in around 20 weeks and according to the advertising, it doesn’t even require you to give up food!

    Alizonne TherapyWe have heard all this before but the unusual thing about Alizonne is that it seems to work. Alizonne is generating some astounding results and there is a long line of happy customers to prove that losing serious amounts of weight is possible.

    Alizonne is expensive but it seems effective. According to many people who have tried it, it is life changing.

    If you haven’t heard of Alizonne Therapy already, expect to be seeing this innovative new therapy coming to a clinic near you in the very near future.

    The big question is does this therapy really offer anything new to justify its hefty price tag? Or is it just another so called miracle cure for obesity that may go the way of all the others? We find out more about Alizonne Therapy.

    What is Alizonne Therapy?

    Alizonne Therapy is a four-treatment diet plan that combines ultrasound therapy, connective tissue massage, medical diet and weight stabilisation, following your weight loss.

    The treatments are carried out weekly at an Alizonne Therapy Clinic and you follow a medically controlled diet at home under supervision.

    Alizonne Therapy does not require invasive techniques or surgery as with gastric band treatment or liposuction. These invasive procedures can cause a range of side effects and do not address the problem of the weight gain in the first place.

    Instead, Alizonne uses ultrasound therapy and tissue massage in order to tone sagging skin that is a common side effect to fast weight loss. To achieve the weight loss you follow a personally designed medical diet to work with your own particular weight issue.

    Alizonne combines treatments carried out in the surgery with a diet plan that you follow over months. Weight loss is significant yet gradual over the 20-week period.

    What is so good about Alizonne?

    Alizonne is on offer from a growing number of cosmetic surgery clinics across the UK and is described as a preventative and cosmetic medicine. It is becoming increasingly popular and if you are significantly overweight it appears to offer sure fire results.

    Much of this good impression is caused by the photographs of the large number of people who have tried it and lost huge amounts of weight over the usual 20 weeks of treatment.

    The Alizonne Therapy information, describes the process as body transformation and looking at the people who have tried it, this description seems to fit.

    Medically supervised by a doctor, Alizonne offers you personalised support throughout your programme and provides a system of weight loss that enables you to reach your target weight without too much stress or discomfort.

    In addition, Alizonne requires that you undertake ultra sound therapy and connective tissue massage in order to maintain healthy skin and minimise the risk of the “loose skin” appearance that many people experience after extreme weight loss.

    So What does Alizonne Treatment Entail?

    Your first step is medical consultation. You visit the Alizonne clinic and see the doctor who will give you a medical examination, take a blood test and evaluate your general health. Your target weight – the healthy weight and BMI for your body will be assessed and a personal diet plan created for you.

    There are four steps to Alizonne treatment.

    1. Each week you undergo ultrasound therapy. This reduces the subcutaneous fat layer beneath the skin – fat cells that are hard to shift by conventional dieting alone. This treatment is painless and takes around 20 minutes.
    2. Following your ultrasound therapy you have a connective tissue massage, designed to tighten and firm your skin. This takes 30 minutes and encourages collagen to grow. This is to maintain the elasticity of your skin so when you lose weight, you will not have saggy skin that fast weight loss can cause.
    3. The Alizonne Diet. The most crucial part of the treatment plan. You receive a diet plan, based on your personal needs. This includes protein shakes – you take five each day and they come as hot drinks – such as drinking chocolate or cold drinks like Squash.
      You take 5 sachets per day, breakfast, mid morning, lunch, mid afternoon and dinner and also eat lunch and dinner from a wide selection of recipes that you make yourself. Crucial to the success of the treatment plan is that you should not feel hungry during your weight loss.
    4. The final stage is the Results and Stabilisation phase. Your body is transformed – often after losing a lot of weight. You receive a maintenance programme based upon your metabolic rate so you should not instantly put the lost weight back on. You can attend regular check ups.

    The Advantages of Alizonne

    According to Alizonne, losing weight can cause problems. The longer you try to stick to a starvation diet – the harder it becomes.

    Following a low calorie weight loss plan can cause the metabolism to slow. In addition without direction and support and derailed by the usual hunger pangs, most people will struggle. If you have been carrying excess weight for years it can be impossible to do it by diet and exercise alone.

    That said, you will need to change your diet and eating habits, so choosing to take Alizonne therapy is not going to be completely will power proof. However, you are provided with a diet plan plus a range of Dietary shakes, which the product advertising claims will prevent you feeling hungry and will stop those crashes of low blood sugar levels and other diet plan side effects.

    According to the advertising, you actually eat more while you are taking the therapy.

    Ultrasound Therapy?

    Ultrasound TherapyUltrasound therapy is very new for weight loss but this non-invasive cosmetic procedure seems to be effective for hard to shift fat in areas such as the stomach, hips and thighs.

    During treatment, the ultrasound probes massage the skin causing the fat cells to break up where they are then removed naturally by your body. Our bodies constantly lose dead cells (apoptosis) and although ultrasound therapy is not as instantly effective as liposuction, it is safer and with repeated cycles of treatment will achieve the same results over time.

    The Alizonne Diet

    The Alizonne diet is key to success so unsurprisingly the product advertising does not give away too much information. One reason for this is that the diet is custom formulated so will vary from person to person.

    You are given a medical examination by a doctor before you start the treatment plan and your blood is tested. The protein you require each day is calculated and you may be prescribed vitamin and mineral supplements too.

    The first part of the diet is strict and confined to a combination of proteins, fresh salads and vegetables. However as the diet progresses you make a gradual return to a natural eating pattern. You have regular medical check-ups throughout your diet to monitor progress so your diet can be adapted to your personal circumstances.

    According to one user;

    With Lunch and Dinner you have to have lots of salad and veg some of which are unlimited amounts some are restricted and some are banned completely.

    There are other rules, such as you must avoid alcohol and ensure that you drink at least 2 litres of water per day.

    Supporting your diet and helping to keep away hunger pangs are a selection of protein Shakes. You take five of these each day – they come in a range of flavours such as chocolate – which you add to hot water to make hot chocolate, cold fruit drinks and rather bizarre meal replacement flavours such as pizza and omelette.

    Is Alizonne Medically Approved?

    You have a consultation with an Alizonne doctor before starting treatment and your health and your weight and problem areas are assessed. This procedure is safe and your weight loss is medically supervised.

    Alizonne Treatment offers you a personal service so there should not be any health risks while you are losing weight.

    One of the best points about this treatment is that it deals with you as an individual and offers ongoing support along your journey.

    In most cases, customers report that the duration and the expected weight loss match the doctor’s predictions. Alizonne takes away the unknown. If you stick to the diet and go along with the weekly appointments, you will lose weight and this is reassuring. The style of the programme is as a medical procedure for health rather than a cosmetic procedure.

    How Much will Alizonne Treatment Cost?

    This treatment is expensive. It costs around £220 a week and with most people appearing to be on the plan for 20 weeks, you are looking at around £4400. In addition, you may have to buy special food in order to keep to the diet plan.

    This is a similar cost as liposuction (between £1000 – £4500 depending on treatment) and gastric band surgery.

    However, it is less intrusive and results may be longer lasting.

    So who’s talking about Alizonne?

    Alizonne has been around for a few years already but seems to becoming increasingly popular in recent months. It has been featured in magazines such as Cosmopolitan and is the subject of an ITV documentary in December 2014. Lots of people are talking about Alizonne on the various UK weight loss forums too and it seems to be attracting positive reactions. One customer reported,

    I see lots of people at the clinic (Leeds) and can honestly say I have not spoken to anyone who it has not worked for.

    Another customer said,

    Personally I have lost 2 stones so far with 3.5 stones to go (no exercise required). It is expensive (around £220 per week) but I think it is well worth it. If you are serious about losing weight and can afford it I would say go for it!

    There is a lot of feedback and we have been unable to find any negative reviews for Alizonne Therapy.

    How did this start? Who invented Alizonne?

    It is hard to find out much about the company behind Alizonne or how this weight loss plan was first devised. The company have been operating for 11 years and the name Alizonne apparently after the name of their first cosmetic clinic.

    Alizonne is based in Leeds Yorkshire.

    Alizonne UK Ltd., Cross Street, Rothwell, Leeds, LS26 0DQ
    0113 282 2266

    However, these days you can find Alizonne therapy centres across the UK and also in Europe. This treatment is becoming increasingly popular.

    So is Alizonne worth a try?

    Many of the people who have successfully lost weight with Alizonne are extremely pleased with results. However, don’t be fooled into thinking it is going to be quick or easy. You will be following an intensive diet plan that will require you to make drastic changes to your diet. Apart from the weekly sessions at the clinic, like with all weight loss plans you will be on your own at home with the diet.

    Many diet pill companies sell Shakes to support weight loss and at the end of the day, it is your efforts and your ability to stick to the plan which will make the difference between success and failure.

    Where Alizonne really scores is the support that it offers. You are in contact every week with your doctor, and you benefit from the weekly ultrasound and the connective tissue massage. Any lapses you make will be noted and we feel that after paying £220 a week for the programme you are certainly going to be focused on sticking to the diet.

    Lose weight without Alizonne?

    It is important to remember that if you cannot justify spending £220 each week over 20 weeks treatment, you can still lose weight.

    If you have a lot of weight to lose, see your doctor for advice and undoubtedly he or she will offer support and guidance that will not cost you anything.

    The Alizonne dietary information is nothing new and you could always use your own eyes and weighing scales to tell whether you have reached your target weight. You can check out a BMI calculator to assess this yourself and to keep within safe boundaries.

    Cutting out fattening foods and sugary drinks, eating plenty of fruit and vegetables as well as some carbs and fibre will certainly help weight loss.

    Exercise increases the speed of the metabolism and if you ensure that you eat adequate protein so you remain hunger free and able to live comfortably on your diet, you will lose weight. Using a diet plan, a supplement or shakes may help too.

    Our Concluson

    Alizonne looks good and we think that it works, but it is important to remember that thousands of people lose weight successfully each year without signing up to an expensive treatment regime like this.

      I HAVE 5 BOXES OF ALVEERA SATCHETS TO SELL FOR 15 PER BOX INSTEAD OF 22, I JUST COULD NOT STAND THE TASTE OF IT

    2. JOHN SUTHERLAND says:

      where is the closest clinic to me, i live post code KW1 4DF Wick, Caithness Scotland

    3. Q says:

      I started this programme as my weight had gone out of control. A busy life, lots of travel and client dinners had their impact. Initial result were stunning losing almost 7 stone in the first 12 months. Due to the lack of clinics in my area i travelled to Birmingham on a weekly basis.

      Once a local clinic opened i transferred there. Weight loss slowed down over the next 12 months and stared to creep up as work pressures and stress increased. As time passed the local clinic administration became more focused on hitting weight loss targets than overall well being. The clinic became a source of stress rather than a place to reflect and refocus on goals. Eventually they kicked me off the programme having spent over £10,000 over the years.

      This diet can work. I would caution on setting goals that are too aggressive. A target of 14 stone now seems unrealistic and i wish the clinic had advised more in this area. Also make sure your life is in a stable situation, for the planned duration, as there is little support or sympathy during stressful periods that make following it difficult. Personally i will make a fresh start with the original clinic in Birmingham as 90% of the results came under their guidance and care.

      1. Mrs v rudd says:

        Anyone can lose weight on 800 calories a day, if ur happy to have no social life , eat the very limited lists of food that’s fine. Don’t get me wrong I lost 3 stones in as many months. I have done various diets before and have never ended up with saggy skin!!! The weight loss happens far far to quickly hence the saggy skin. I am a very active person and DO NOT have a bad diet, but cannot afford continuing and what makes it worse is that regardless of how careful you are you DEFO put the weight back on!!!

      2. Sharon says:

        I found myself in almost the same position. Clinic was completely commercially driven and didn’t really care about me – in fact the 2 girls who used to administer my ultrasound and connective tissue massage left the clinic because of how badly [they], treated some of the clients, who, like yourself, had spent a lot of money. Personally I’d recommend Jane Plan and find someone who will do connective tissue massage separately. Alizonne is a total waste of money!

    4. andy says:

      I did this diet in 2011 and lost 3 stone in just 59 days. Over the past 6 years I have not put the weight back on. Alizonne did change my life. If you over eat then this should be treated whilst you are on the diet. The Alizonne diet works and that is an undeniable fact. If you pile the weight back on it is NOT the fault of the diet, it is because you have not changed your eating habits. If you are not prepared to change your eating habits then don’t waste your money because you will get fat again.

    5. janet kennedy says:

      Complete waste of money as soon as you stop the weight piles back on double quick. cost a fortune and still paying for it, very unhealthy I was on it twice ended in 2 hospital admissions.

      1. Sara McKenzie says:

        How much did they charge for the protein powders?

      2. L Nunn says:

        That happened to me too. 7 stone off in 6 months, the 7 stone on in 6 months. A big fat waste of a few thousand pounds.

        The Ali once, or whatever they are called now quotes always use the word stones, which is like saying sheep’s. Always makes me giggle.

        1. Louisa Nunn says:

          All the overall regime did not work for me, I found the Alizonne/Alvere skin treatments really effective. As I ended up with no loose skin after a 7 stone loss, I am using similar ones as part of a new weight loss approach. Life as it should be!

    6. Nicola says:

      Iv done alizonne twice now lost all the weight 10st in total and it all has come back on twice its devistating If your an overeater it will come back on !!!! especially if aftercare is pretty much none existent

      1. Helen says:

        Do you know where you can do it in London?

    7. DG says:

      I have followed this diet 4 years ago and it was life changing. It is expensive but it worthy of every penny I have invested. I carried on losing weight after I finished the programme and lost 10kg on top of my initial goal which was losing 22kg. 32kg was my weight lost and I learned to eat for life!

    8. Brooke says:

      I assume this programme is strictly across the pond? I’m in the US and read about this. Can you tell me or anyone if they have offices here or if anyone knows if that may be on the horizon?

    9. Judith says:

      I visited this clinic some time ago. The weight loss depended on eating their own patented packets of dried “food”. I believe that is not healthy so I declined. Reception staff nice; doctor not nice.

    10. Sue says:

      I have been on this diet for 3 weeks & have lost 9lb but this week haven’t lost a thing….I am now wondering if it is worth all the money I’m paying out as well as the commitment as I’m getting very very worried about coming of as seems like majority of people put it back on & more.

    11. LISA INGHAM says:

      Hi there
      Can the diet be down simply by purchasing the diet sachets?

    12. Joanna says:

      Hello
      I used to be on this programme and I lost nearly 10kg in only 6 weeks or less, but I got pregnant in the middle so I stopped it, but I still have few meal replacement left, if anyone interested please let me know it can be posted or collected if you close by.

      1. mike says:

        Hi would like to try if you still have sachets

    13. Adele says:

      Is this treatment only available to people considered to be obese? I have been advised by a health professional to lose around 10 lb of body fat. Could you help me? Thank you .

      1. gail says:

        you would be better going to Superdrug and buying some Lighter life meal replacements. They are in boxes of 4 shakes for around £8 and some pence. you replace meals with 4 shakes per day-both soups and shakes, and they are all nice- or you could do 3 shakes and one real ”healthy” meal per day-whichever you prefer .i lost 7 stone doing this for 9 months- but friends have done it for just a few weeks and lost just what they want.

    14. Gerry Lynch says:

      I lost more than 150 pounds on this programme at the London Clinic 5 years ago (yes, I was very fat) and it completely transformed my life. I struggled to walk to the pub. Now I have walked the Coast to Coast, Toubkal in Africa, Hadrian’s Wall and most of the Wainwright fells to name just a few “adventures.” 5 years on I am wearing all the same post diet clothes and I am never more than a pound or two above / below my target weight. This works, it is healthy and with minimal effort the education gained sets one up for life. Note the word “education.” It is down to YOU at the end of the day!

    15. Pippa Sater says:

      What is the difference between Alevere and the Alizonne plan? I am confused! My husband and I want do the plan but which is the correct and proper site?
      thanjka pippa

      1. Patty says:

        Pippa — they’ve replaced one with the other. Alizonne is the original, and up until a certain time last year that’s what it was called. Then, according to the grapevine, differences came up between the lead/home office clinic in Leeds and the original program developer in the Netherlands. So, to continue offering the service they rebranded. This is also when some of the packet foods changed.

        The program worked very well for me, but you have to be ready to make the change. It’s true you won’t be hungry if you follow the rules, but based on the science behind blood sugar levels even little cheats can throw you out of whack and you can end up hungry. And, remember that at the end, you’re back to managing your own habits, maintenance can be more difficult that the actual weight loss. It’s a lot of money to spend if you don’t change for long term (but that’s like any weight loss program…the ‘end’ is just the beginning).

    16. Sarah Ward says:

      Did the diet in 2010 and lost 4.5 stones. Maintenance phase rubbish, care is gone, and ended putting all weight back on plus more! Cost me £7k over the 5 months. I looked great but one you stop the losing weight phase you may as well not bother. Skin treatments stop and they ask you to now add carbs, fatal!

    17. ian says:

      I tried this diet in 2011 and got great results for the 20 weeks I was on it however the support post diet was awful and i steadily put the weight back on.
      It became clear that the bulk of the weight I lost was in fact muscle tissue, as a former rugby player I carried a great deal of muscle under an excess of 3 to 4 Stone of fat. The weightloss was muscle as my body canabalised itself due to drastic calorie reduction.
      The diet is dangerous please please avoid

    18. Bev says:

      Hi I am looking into starting this after thinking about it for a while but can not find any clinics in either stockport Cheshire or Manchester. Is it still going. Please can anyone tell me if there is any clinics anywhere in those areas. Thanks

      1. Sharndra says:

        there is a clinic in Wimslow that does it

    19. Liz says:

      I am currently on my 7th week, I have lost 2 and a half stone and I am losing weight at almost double the speed they thought. By week 4 I was where they thought I would be by week 8. its made such a difference not only to helping with pain from other health problems I have but more so to my self esteem. I think if you can afford it and are prepared to 100% stick to it (otherwise yes it is a complete waste of money) then go for it im so pleased I have.

    20. Sue hughes says:

      i have been on this diet twice and I am still paying the loan back but have gained all the weight back am under the hospital for weight loss and they are not in agreement of this diet , I didn’t find much support at all when I finished the diet , I lost hair and was told I was on the verge of malnutrition by the hospital , so for me it was the worse decision i made choose carefully that’s my advice

    21. Jane says:

      I have lost 2lb, 1lb.not quite a 1lb and put on a 1lb since they have changed the shakes they taste horrible, it is far too expensive for such a little weight loss.

    22. Debs says:

      i like the objectivity of this piece although there are a few slight inaccuracies! I personally have a huge battle to lose a lot of weight and have lost six and a half stones on this programme so far. It is well designed and the weekly treatments and support are invaluable. If your purse allows, it is the best diet programme available without going for surgery, that’s my opinion of course!

    23. Joy Metcalfe says:

      I have been on this diet for three weeks now ,lost17lbs ,did not feel hungry and was very happy. However they have just changed the food packs without warning and the new ones are not half as good!

    24. Anon says:

      If you have the money to waste and want to be slimmer for 20 weeks this diet is perfect :-/

    25. Anne Welford says:

      My legal team will be in touch on Monday, have a nice day.

      1. DLC says:

        What a pathetic response to a well rounded and balanced article. Why can’t people be informed.
