LA Weight Loss is a company that has a history of weight loss centers and high powered sales tactics. However, LA Weight Loss has recently closed many of their centers around the country and transformed their program to one that can be done entirely online. There are a few physical centers that remain, but the online program allows you to participate in the program no matter where you live. The LA Weight Loss program is designed for those with a busy lifestyle. You can achieve weight loss results quickly using this program. The key to the fast and effective results is called the transmetabolic factor.

This helps your body burn calories throughout the day. You don’t have do anything special for this factor to occur, you just have to follow the LA Weight Loss menu plan. Although the claim is that the transmetabolic factor occurs through the foods you eat, you are required to purchase nutrition supplements each month with the LA Weight Loss program. With the meal plan, each meal includes balanced amounts of protein, carbohydrates and good fat. Portion control and timing of meals is also very important on this program. When you start the program, you use the LA Rapid Results Food Guide. This guide is followed until you lose 20 pounds. At that point you will transition to the LA My Way Food Guide. If your goal is to lose less than 20 pounds, you would transition once you reach your goal. The foods you will eat are those that you purchase at your local grocery store. There are no prepackaged meals to buy, but you are encouraged to purchase and eat two LA Lite Bars each day along with LA SmartTrim Nutritionals.

You will choose the foods you eat each day and never be forced to eat things you don’t like. There are support tools available as well as one on one support through chat rooms and forums. To jump-start your results, you will receive a 2 day kick-start plan featuring the LA Weight Loss TakeOFF Juice. There are five easy to follow steps that make the up the elements of the entire LA Weight Loss program. The LA Weight Loss program is divided into three phases: Weight Loss, Stabilize, Maintenance.

DIET and NUTRITION

LA Weight Loss has a non-diet approach. They promote a healthy weight loss program, that teaches you how to live a healthy and balanced life- not just kill a few pounds for the moment. You won't have to seriously restrict one group of food, like a low-carb or no-fat diet; instead, you'll learn how to enjoy all things in moderation assuring your body receives all the nutrients it needs. Following the LA Weight Loss program is easy and can be done in five steps. Along with the meal plan you will be purchasing bars and nutrition supplements. For those that don’t live in an area with physical LA Weight Loss Centers, you can complete the program online. Your eating plan will vary depending on your current weight. There are additional products available including additional bars, protein shakes, snacks and a plateau breaking system. The five steps of the weight loss program include:

  • Step 1: Use the 2-Day Kick Start plan on your first two days and then every 14 days while you are working towards reaching your goal weight. This stage uses the LA Weight Loss TakeOFF Juice. This juice prepares your body for weight loss and claims to help you get rid of pounds quickly.
  • Step 2: This stage starts on your third day of the program and continues until you lose 20 pounds or reach your goal if it’s less than 20 pounds. During this stage you will be using the LA Rapid Results Diet System. You follow the food choices in your food guide that includes foods from the categories of proteins, vegetables, fruits, starches, dairy, fats, beverages, extras and LA Lites Bars. During this stage you will be eating six meals from your allowed menu.
  • Step 3: Transition to the LA My Way Food Guide once you have lost 20 pounds. You stay on this stage until you reach your goal weight. Your LA My Way Food Guide includes a more expanded food list. This stage will allow you to continue your weight loss. If you feel more comfortable, you can stay with the eating guidelines of stage two until you reach your goal or are ready to move on.
  • Step 4: Use LA Lites Bars every day throughout the program. These bars are said to be a crucial component of your success. They are designed to help reduce cravings and temptations. The bars are convenient and can be taken with you anywhere.
  • Step 5: Use the LA SmartTrim Nutritionals with your diet program. These supplements are also said to be an integral part of the LA Weight Loss program. Previously, these supplements and the snack bars were the cause of a lot of scrutiny with the sales practices of the physical centers. Now when you order your program online, they are included. The supplements are specifically designed to give your body the needed nutrients to complete the program.
EXERCISE

As part of the LA Weight Loss program, you'll be encouraged to get up and move. LA states that even a mild exercise regimen will yield results. The LA Weight Loss program is heavily based on the foods you eat along with their snack bars and nutrition supplements. You are encouraged to exercise at least three times per week to burn calories and increase your weight loss results. The type of exercise you do is left completely up to you, so finding something you like would be beneficial.

CONCLUSION

LA Weight Loss has created a program that is different from what they have previously used. You can do this program online without having to go to a center for your products. This is especially helpful because most of the centers have closed. It is important to notice that the bulk of what you are spending on this program each month is to pay for the required bars and nutrition supplements. For those that want to truly lose weight and keep it off, a healthy diet and exercise plan can get you there. Changing your eating habits and adding physical activity is the tried and true way to lose weight, and you won’t spend hundreds of dollars each month on snack bars and supplements.

They charged me up front for LA lites and went out of business the following week. I wasn't able to get my money back. I still feel cheated and bitter 6 years later. Sad! I wouldn't trust them. If you want to do the program, go for it, but make sure you never pay them up front for anything. They like to keep money they haven't earned.

What is Health and Well Being?

This sounds like a great weight loss regimen. The biggest overlooked factor in weight loss for both women and men is a high-gluten diet. Remove the gluten, i.e., become gluten-free, and both men and women may drop up to 50 lbs. of weight, almost overnight, and as if by magic! A high-gluten diet leads to what I call "gluten-belly" and the well-known "leaky gut" syndrome. I live by the principle of: The source of all chronic disease is chronic malnutrition. And a high-gluten diet is the source of most chronic malnutrition!

I had to lose at least 20 punds fast in order to keep my job. Yes to keep my job. I went to LAWL in 2005 and lost 30 pounds in a month. I started out at 180 something in December and by the end of January I was at 140 something. I was never hungry and I never felt pressured into buying anything I didnt want. I used the bars because they made me feel fuller at intervals through out the day. I was very upset when they closed yes and I missed them. They helped me through alot of trying times. I plateaued at 140. I couldnt lose anymore but we were still trying. The only thing I can say is you really have to work at this to do it. I stayed at 150 for a few years until my fiancee moved in. He can cook so I sky rocketed. I think with out the knowledge LA gave me I would have never kept the weight off. I am happy they are back even if only on line. I was not pressured into buying anything. I bought what I wanted and that was it. Anything worth working for is always going to cost something. Either sweat and pain or whatever else. Good luck to everyone. Just keep your eye on the prize and eventually you will have it in your hands

I was extremely overweight, I usually binged on fried food, cake, ice cream, anything that had that "feel good" taste to it. Although, not long after I consumed those foods, I felt guilty about eating them. One day out of sheer curiosity I stepped on the scale to see what the number said. To my shock, I was only five pounds under 300lbs. I was deathly afraid for my health, and knew that something had to give. So, I decided to find something that will and was able to see this story which inspires me.

I did LA Weightloss in 2007, lost almost 80 pounds in 10 months...the staff was great, I was NEVER hounded to buy product, although I loved the bars and did buy them. I NEVER took supplements. I too, was shocked when I showed up for a weigh-in and to pick up bars and the store was closed. The online store, of course, told me I was SOL and now I refuse to buy their products on line. I follow the program I still have and I buy other protein bars at half the price. I wish they would have kept the old version!

I did LA Weight Loss several years ago when they had a store in my town. I lost weight, they never pushed the LA food but like anyone in business told me about the products they carry sometimes i bought them sometimes I didn't. the program worked for me because of a couple things the 2x a week weigh in and the guidance in planning my food out. when i followed the plan to the letter i lost weight... when I strayed i did not it was that simple. i see all these post of people being mad at LA Weight Loss and do not understand if you did not lose weight then you did not follow the program and are just wanting to blame someone else. I was very lost when they closed my LA Weight Loss center all because of a few unhappy customers but what about all of the ones they did help! think about that! and look at yourself before you blame others.

How long do you have to do LA Weight Loss program until you start seeing results? I need to know how long this program typically takes for people to start to see results..

This program is a scam. You have to sign a contract promising to buy their yucky diet bars - which are double the price of better quality and better tasting nutrition bars you can get at the market or drug store - The staff are nasty and rude if you don't buy the supplements and snacks - AND the staff are paid based on commission sales - they are fired if they do not meet a monthly sales quata. They are calling themselves LA Weight Loss now, but this is the third or fourth name they have used because of lawsuits they have lost because of false advertising, false claims about what their products do and sale of unapproved supplements. DO NOT TRUST LA WEIGHT LOSS - THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE

I did the LA Weight loss and was down 53lbs. Felt great and then got pregnant. I too went back after having the baby and when I was at my goal they shut the doors and gave no warning. I was on the purple plan as well and plan on restarting it again after having baby #2. The Kick start was great without using the take off juice and I never took any supplements or the bars for medical reasons. I just think I would do better if I had someone to check in with regularly. I wish they had stayed open. I actually made a couple of good friends there.

LA was great at first. When I signed up in October of 2007 the counselors in Rapid City were great. They knew my name, why I was there and even my weight loss goals. I lost roughly 30 lbs and felt great. Then 10 weeks into my maintenance plan I found out I was pregnant. No problem them said just come back 6 weeks after the baby is born and we'll help you out CONGRATULATIONS!! ^ weeks post baby I went back to the center to find they had all new counselors save 1, and wanted more money (I had prepaid for my plan) and every time I went in there I had to explain everything all over again. Why I was there my weight loss goals why I had reached my goal weight and was now back trying to reach my goal weight again. After 2 months I told the manager that I was not going to give then one more dime that I paid for my weeks and expected a service for my money. Finally got so mad that i never went back. LA weight loss is about the MONEY not the people. Great way to loose weight but don't give them anymore than you have too and you don't need to use the bars or juice to lose weight. I tried it both ways. I did lose weight after the baby but found it much harder and never met my previous goal weight. Now after baby #2 I have to start all over again. I will have to try a different plan this time.

I lost my weight (45#) with one stay the same, no gains, loved it. Due to some health issues I did not use any of their products, was never pressured to do so. Our counselors in Mankato, Mn cared about us!! After the doors closed :( I knew I needed weekly support so I belong to WW now. It costs more and I feel is harder to follow. (I had gained some back after a bout of feeling rotten for months and so depressed. Finally found it was a thyroid problem, started meds and am doing well.)Have to set down & Count & figure every point so alas I now live my life by points!! I'm not good on computer, don't really like them that well so I know I will not be doing anything on-line with LA

I loved the program - lost 38 lbs and then showed up for a weigh in 2 yrs ago and they had closed the doors. 52 boxes of prepaid for boxes of bars GONE - i just contacted the company online, they said each store was a private owner and they are not tied to them at all, but offered me a very generous $10 off coupon! seriously - you got hundreds of dollars of mine already that i am owed - you think i'd spene more. THanks to the post about the Luna Bars being an equivalant and cheaper - going to give them a try. Saved my old gold book - so easy to get back on track with the program.

As far as weight loss is considered I have to spend lots and lots of money on various techniques but my solution was surgery. Dr. Jeremy Korman and his team at L.A. Bariatrics helped me to get the desired results.
