Discussions that mention potassium

Weight Loss board


I do think there is a link between b-12 and depression, but also there may be a link too with women and potassium, in regards to depression as well, just a thought.

good point.
Hi,
I have to say that having the B-12 and B-6 injections has changed my life. At first it was HORRIBLE. I could not function at all, because I am on the Dr. Bernstein Diet, and they limit your calories do dramatically that it really is a major shock to your system at first, but after being on it for 8 days now. I have to say I am very impressed by it. I have lost 6 lbs and I feel better then I have in years. The diet itself does work, in conjuntion with the B-12 and B-6 shots. I do not think that the B-12 shots alone will make you lose weight. But with everything combined it does work. My nurse told me that the B-12 shots are moreso to keep your energy levels up while you are on a strict low-carb, low-fat, 800 calorie a day diet. And wow, it is finally working. The first few days were very very rough, to say the least. But now I have more energy then ever, and the weight is coming off without one bit of exercise. My appetite is so low, that I now have to force myself to eat, at least my daily proteins.
I love this diet, I have tried Weight Watchers and Atkins and South Beach diet, and none of those diets worked well for me, because they were too hard for me to stick to. This one is medically supervised and you have someone pushing you 3 times a week and checking up on you to make sure that you do not cheat at all.
I love that.
Anyway, the longer I am on this diet, the more I love it.
The dr B headquarters has treated me so good following the incident I had at their other clinic last week. I am now in a new clinic and I could not be happier about it. Even my husband notices the difference in me.
Also, the very important part of the diet is the multivitamin they give you daily, and the 2 doses each (twice daily) of potassium. That is what brings it all together.
I love it.
