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!
We 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 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

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.
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.
