i work at a weight loss clinic, and we have the lipotropic/B12 injections there, and i have seen awesome, awesome results...now, i'm not sure exactly HOW it does what it does, but pretty much it targets the areas of your body where there is a lot of built up fat, breaks it down, which causes you to lose inches, helps with cellulite AND cholesterol levels..i do know that with these, you will see a drop in inches first before you see the actual pounds gone...i saw one lady lose 10 1/2 inches in 3 weeks, one lady lost 2 pants sizes in a month..they're really awesome!
Rachel please email me the name of the clinic you work at. akj156@aol.com

i think that i would prefer the HcG shot..
I've read a lot about that one, and i could have
sworn that i got that one when i was 19 trying to lose weight.

Does anyone have any info on this shot, and what is the difference between the b12 and the Hcg shot, and where can I get this Hcg shot in Houston Texas
? ANYONE?

Taina: Congrats on your success!! I've been seeing Dr. Garcia since Nov. 20 and am down 65 lbs... I have added things to the diet and find that as long as it has 0 sugar, it has little effect on the weight loss. I average about 3.5 pounds a week. I it's amazing huh?

Interesting news story:

American addicts, fed from Calcutta
A STAFF REPORTER
Calcutta, Feb. 13 2007: City infotech CEO Sanjay Kedia made over Rs 2 crore a month by selling fake rescriptions to American addicts so they could buy the drugs from US pharmacies, the Narcotic Control Bureau said today.
The head of Saltlec-based Xponse IT Services and Xponse Technologies, arrested on Sunday night, operated his business online and had clients also in Canada and Sweden, officials said.
The 31-year-old IIT Delhi graduate has allegedly been running the racket through 29 websites for the past two years, earning about $500,000 a month from his thousands of mostly American customers.
“This young man’s arrest was a fallout of a year-long effort, Operation Pharma. We started the investigation last year after being tipped off by the US Drug Enforcement Administration,” said Sandeep Mittal, director of NCB’s eastern zone.
“We have come to know that Kedia had opened an account with a Luxembourg bank in a fictitious name and deposited $10 million (about Rs 44 crore). US agencies are in the process of getting it frozen.”
The 29 websites — termed “online pharmacies” by the NCB — were hosted by Kedia’s BPO, Xponse IT, Mittal said.
“They took orders for psychotropic drugs, mainly phentermine, either over toll-free numbers or through the Internet,” he added.
“The customers are people addicted to psychotropic substances — which affect the central nervous system and can change mood and perception — but can’t buy it from a medicine shop because they don’t have a prescription. These clients paid Kedia through credit or debit cards.”
Kedia would then fill in a prescription form mentioning the client’s details — like name, address, body weight and blood pressure — and introducing him as a patient who needed the drug as medication.
“He would then paste the forged signature of a registered US doctor,” Mittal said.“Kedia would fax a printout to a medicine store named by the client and pay it online. The client would collect the drug within a day or two, or have it delivered to him.”
Mittal added that the medicine stores, or the doctors whose signatures Kedia allegedly forged, were unlikely to be involved.
Kedia is believed to have taken over the business from an American drug dealer, Steven Mahana, in 2005. Mahana, who did his dealings face to face, accepted a 49 per cent share to become a partner and provided his customer base to Kedia.
Sanjay Kedia
NCB officials said they had sealed several of Kedia’s bank accounts in India which together held Rs 1.7 crore.
“We have booked Kedia under three sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, all of which are non-bailable. The minimum jail term is 10 years,” Mittal said.
The official named some of the websites Kedia used, such as deliveredmedicine.com , deliveredphentermine.com and truevaluepharmacy.com .
But he added that Kedia did not want to run his business in India or any other Asian country.
“He barred access to his online pharmacy business to all people who are from Asia,” Mittal said.“He did it because he realised it might get him into trouble.”
Kedia’s lawyer C.K. Jain had said yesterday that his client had merely developed software for a foreign company that ran its business through a website dealing with pharmaceuticals.

B12 injections work amazing on me.
Just pinch the some fat on the side of your obliques and dart the needle in at a 90 degree angle.
I have a slimer side to where it was injected already and it was 2 days ago that i shot it.

Hi Linda it's not the B12 shot alone that helps with weight loss. Hopefully this breakdown will help. The doctor that I go to calls it Lipo-Vite and he has two locations one in Marietta, GA and one in Norcross, GA.

Lipotropic agents are a class of substances that play an important role in the body's use of fat. Many substances have lipotropic properties of which choline, inositol and methionine are among the most noteworthy. Through their involvement in lipid (fat) metabolism, lipotropics help maintain a healthy liver.

Choline & Inositol are co-enzymes that are required for the proper metabolism of fats, and have the ability to remove fat from the liver. Choline's function in fat metabolism is tied to its role in bile production. Without choline, fats can become trapped in the liver, where they can block normal metabolic functions. Choline and inositol are necessary for normal nerve and brain function. Choline is a fat emulsifier which aids in emulsifying cholesterol so that it doesn't settle on arterial walls. Choline works well with inositol to utilize fats and cholesterol. The body can produce choline, with the help of vitamin B12, folic acid and methionine. Natural choline production however, may not always be adequate to meet daily needs. Studies show that diets deficient in choline lead to undesirable changes to liver, kidney and brain functions.



Inositol metabolizes fats and cholesterol and aids in transporting fat in the blood system. Thus, inositol is an aid in the redistribution of body fat and can help to lower cholesterol levels. It is a member of the B-Complex group and is a lipotropic agent. A lack of inositol has be shown to produce an accumulation of triglycerides in the liver.



Methionine has lipotropic properties similar to those of choline. Two other important amino acids, cysteine and taurine, depend on adequate levels of methionine for their biosynthesis in the body. Methionine is one of the nutrients required during the body's manufacture of choline and a deficiency of this amino acid will adversely affect fat metabolism.

Methionine is a lipotropic amino acid which reduces fat and aids in lowering cholesterol. It can be substituted for choline, which aids in reducing liver fat and detoxifies amines, which are by-products of protein metabolism. A deficiency may lead to fatty degeneration and cirrhosis of the liver.
