What’s the Difference Between LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR?

What’s the Difference Between LOVIDIA Regular and LOVIDIA XR?

So you know that we make two natural hunger control tablets to help you reach your weight loss goals: LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR. But what’s the difference between these two products and how do you know which one you should buy?

Here are some quick answers to our most common customer questions…

Do LOVIDIA Regular and LOVIDIA XR contain the same ingredients?

Both LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR work using the scientific process of Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM). Here’s how it works: our patented Hunger Control Formula delivers natural food ingredients past the stomach to stimulate L-cells in the lower gut to release more GLP-1 and PYY than would be released by food alone. GLP-1 and PYY are the hormones that tell your brain “I’m full”, helping you to feel satisfied sooner and eat less.

LOVIDIA XR contains all the same ingredients as regular LOVIDIA with the addition of an herb called berberine. Used in Chinese medicine for centuries, berberine has been shown to increase the release of GLP-1 and PYY, those helpful hormones that make you feel full.

The active ingredients in both LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR are all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

Wait… how does this help me lose weight?

The best way to drop unwanted pounds is to eat less and move more. But eating less makes you feel hungry, which isn’t any fun, so most diets fail. LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR help you feel full faster (so you eat less) and also feel less hungry (so you’re a happy camper).

Eating less without feeling miserable makes you far more likely to stick to your diet and succeed at your weight loss goals.

How long does it take each tablet to start working?

The original LOVIDIA tablet releases its ingredients over a time period of 1-4 hours for a more short-term effect. Taking LOVIDIA about 1-2 hours before your largest meals of the day (typically lunch and dinner) gives you the hunger control benefits of LOVIDIA by the time you sit down for your meal so you’re less likely to overeat.

LOVIDIA XR has a much slower release time of 3-12 hours for all-day hunger control. This means that a LOVIDIA XR tablet taken with breakfast starts working around mid to late morning and a tablet taken at lunch will start to take effect by dinnertime.

Do I take LOVIDIA Regular and LOVIDIA XR the same way?

Yes and no. Both LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. Don’t break, crush, or chew the tablet because it can affect the release timing of the ingredients.

Take one LOVIDIA tablet 1-2 hours before each of your two biggest meals of the day. This depends on your personal habits, but for a lot of people, it would be lunch and dinner.

LOVIDIA XR can be taken with meals since its effect is delayed and most people find it easier to remember to take a tablet at mealtime. The most common dosing schedule for XR is to take one with breakfast and one with lunch for all-day hunger control.

You can also take one LOVIDIA tablet and one LOVIDIA XR each day, which works really well if you’re following an intermittent fasting plan where you don’t eat first thing in the morning.

Which formula is right for me?

If your biggest struggle is overeating at mealtimes or snacking between breakfast and lunch, original LOVIDIA Regular is a good option. If you tend to be an all-day grazer or if you have a tough time with late night snacking, LOVIDIA XR is often a better bet because of its extended release formula.

But as you can see from what some of our actual customers have to say, the main goal is to figure out what works best for you and then stick with it.

Rebecca M. says, “Lovidia has been a wonderful tool for me. I take it after breakfast. In my high stress workplace I used food/snacks as a way to stay awake or keep focused in front of the computer. Ever since I started Lovidia my cravings have greatly reduced and I find myself drinking more water instead. Lovidia also decreases my appetite when I get caught in long meetings. I feel better at the end of my day. Thank you so much!”

Lori C. says, “LOVIDIA XR really helps me feel less “snacky” and decreases my hunger in the afternoon when I feel cravings the most.”

Linda F. says, “I wanted to try something all natural that worked for me and my lifestyle. I’m a mom, work from home and can be pretty busy. I know I need to make time to exercise and eat better for overall health. I’ll do pretty well with my meals, but I’ll give into my snacking and cravings. I heard Lovidia could help with that. I gave it a try and noticed my cravings went away when I took it before my afternoon and late-night craving times. I feel better having this to keep me on track. Thanks!“

Suzan S. says, “No matter what diet I was trying I could never get past the late-night cravings. I was good at sticking to my plan for breakfast, lunch and dinner…but after about 8pm, I could not control myself. Chips, crackers, cheese, ice-cream, leftovers just seemed to get in my way. I started taking LOVIDIA XR about 3 months ago. I began to notice that after dinner, I was full! After about 3 weeks, I noticed that the late-night snacking was gone! Since then I have lost 20 pounds and I am in control of my diet!”

How to Maximize Your Results with LOVIDIA

How to Maximize Your Results with LOVIDIA

You started taking LOVIDIA, and you see positive changes in your hunger level, as well as your ability to ignore cravings. You want the benefits to continue and you’re wondering how to maximize your results.

We’ve got some helpful tips you can use to get the most bang for your buck from LOVIDIA. But before we start, if you’re not seeing the effects that you hoped for from LOVIDIA, you should check out our post “What to Do If It Feels Like LOVIDIA Isn’t Working.”

1 | Take LOVIDIA consistently

Our number one recommendation to help you maximize your results with LOVIDIA is to take the tablets consistently. What does this mean?

Once you’ve established the best times for you to take LOVIDIA, take it close to the same times every day. Not only does this help LOVIDIA work with your natural digestive process, but it makes you less likely to forget to take it.

April told us, “I didn’t get serious about taking LOVIDIA until about a month ago; prior to that I was taking it occasionally. Since taking it more regularly along with a low calorie diet, I can definitely say that it helps to control physical hunger.”

2 | Drink plenty of water

Staying hydrated is important for making sure your body functions properly, including your digestive system. Water helps cleanse your system and break down food effectively.

Because LOVIDIA works with your natural digestion, it’s important to drink enough water to ensure that this process is running efficiently.

3 | LOVIDIA is clinically-proven to work well with intermittent fasting

Intermittent fasting (IF) is very popular in the health and wellness community. Instead of focusing on what you eat, the focus is on when you eat.

There are several types of IF schedules, which makes it easier to adapt to your lifestyle. Here’s a great article on the basics of IF: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/intermittent-fasting-guide#methods

In clinical trials, participants took LOVIDIA twice each day while following an alternate day low caloric fasting plan. Over a 13 week period, the clinical trial participants taking LOVIDIA lost an average of 14lbs and reported significantly less hunger, which let’s face it, is one of the worst parts of cutting calories.

Whether you’re restricting your calorie intake or decreasing the number of hours you eat during the day, LOVIDIA can help control your hunger and cravings. Intermittent fasting can help you get the most mileage from LOVIDIA.

Just listen to what Craig had to say about LOVIDIA, “My belly was bulging, and I seemed to have no energy to play with my kids. I recorded my weight once every week and ate regular, healthy meals 4 days a week and 3 days a week, I had “Eat-Less days” where I ate 500-800 calories. I took LOVIDIA every day and ate the LOVIDIA bars and Crispy hearts when I was feeling especially hungry. I lost 29 pounds and am feeling great!”

4 | Pay attention to your hunger level & stop eating when you’re comfortably full

There’s physical hunger that happens when your body needs food to replenish its energy. Then there’s emotional/psychological hunger that can be caused by stress, boredom, etc. Learning to tell the difference will help you maximize your results with LOVIDIA.

To get a better understanding of how to assess your hunger, take a look at this short video with Dr. Mark Tager, a medical advisor to LOVIDIA.

As Dr. Tager explains, it’s important to learn to interpret your hunger level so you can eat at the right time. You shouldn’t be eating when you’re barely hungry, but you don’t want to wait until your starving either.

5 | Get moderate exercise on a regular basis

The fact is that not only does regular exercise help your weight loss goals, it’s essential for long term overall health. The good news for those who don’t love exercise it that a moderate amount is sufficient.

LOVIDIA will help you with your health and weight loss goals, but it’s just one tool in your wellness tool box. If you want to get the most benefit from your daily LOVIDIA tablets, you also need to make smart lifestyle choices. Eating healthy foods and getting regular exercise are two other powerful and important tools.

6 | Use the LOVIDIA bar to give your hunger control an extra edge

In addition to taking two LOVIDIA or LOVIDIA XR tablets each day, you can use the LOVIDIA bar for an added hunger control boost. This small, but powerful bar can be eaten at a time when your hunger level is most intense or in place of a meal to accelerate your weight loss goals.

Using the same Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM) process as LOVIDIA tablets, the LOVIDIA bar’s natural ingredients stimulate the L-cells in your lower gut to produce more GLP-1 and PYY hormones that tell your brain, “I’m full. It’s time to stop eating.”

Lynn T said, “I always cleaned my plate… no matter what. I knew that I needed to control my portions to lose the weight, but I never felt I had the control I needed. I tried LOVIDIA and I could feel a difference in my hunger levels right away. When it was time for dinner, I was able to take smaller portions and feel satisfied with less food. I use the LOVIDIA bars as an added hunger control boost when I’m going out for a work lunch. This keeps me on track!”

Made up of a tasty blend of nuts, dates, and our proprietary hunger control blend, the LOVIDIA bar should be eaten with a full glass of water to help you conquer cravings when you need it the most.

The Takeaway

If you want to maximize your results when taking LOVIDIA, you should:
● take LOVIDIA consistently
● drink plenty of water
● try intermittent fasting
● pay attention to your hunger level
● get moderate exercise
● use the LOVIDIA bar for an extra boost of hunger control

The LOVIDIA Troubleshooting Guide

What to Do If It Feels Like LOVIDIA Isn’t Working

You made the decision to try LOVIDIA or LOVIDIA XR, you placed your order, and you eagerly started taking the tablets as soon as the package arrived.

And now you feel… nothing.

This is definitely not what you expected so what’s going on?

First of all, we understand how frustrating it is to not see an immediate impact. But the good news is that we have some possible explanations and a bunch of helpful tips to get you moving in the right direction!

Gut Sensory Modulation takes time to have an effect.

LOVIDIA helps control hunger through the process of Gut Sensory Modulation (GSM). Here’s the nutshell version of how it works:

When you take a LOVIDIA or LOVIDIA XR tablet, the special coating allows it to pass through the early phases of digestion into the gut. Once it reaches the lower gut, the all-natural hunger control blend stimulates the sweet and bitter L-cell taste receptors. This causes the release of the PYY and GLP-1 hormones that tell your brain “I’m full” helping you to feel more satisfied sooner and eat less.

Unlike the typical weight loss pill that relies on stimulants like caffeine, LOVIDIA is working with your body’s own digestive process. This means that it often takes longer to experience the positive effects of LOVIDIA as your body adjusts its normal hunger response.

Jackie told us, “I’ve been taking the pills for about three weeks now. After a week I was ready to give up on them. They didn’t seem to be doing a thing, especially in the afternoon when I’m typically starving about 2:00. All of a sudden one day I looked at the clock and it was 4:00. Huh. How about that?! Surprisingly, this continued. In the morning I could now make it to lunch without snacking. So this whole past week I’ve eaten 3 meals a day without suffering in the least.”

If you’ve only been taking LOVIDIA for a few days, give it time to take effect. Consistency is key so try to take LOVIDIA around the same time each day when you know you’ll need it most. This brings us to the next point.

Different people experience hunger at different times.

We suggest that you start by taking LOVIDIA 1-2 hours prior to your two largest meals OR you can take LOVIDIA XR with meals twice a day. Keep in mind that this isn’t the only option. It’s simply a starting point based on results from clinical trials and customer feedback.

Sheri called us after she’d been taking LOVIDIA for a few days and had only noticed a small effect. She explained that her most intense cravings came at night, and that was when she often gave into her craving for a dessert. A LOVIDIA customer care member suggested that she take one tablet with lunch and one with dinner to better fit her time of peak hunger. After making the changes, Sheri experienced a noticeable effect and no longer craved her usual dessert.

If you notice that your most intense cravings come at night, try adjusting the times you take LOVIDIA.

LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR work differently so be sure to use them appropriately.

The original LOVIDIA formulation is designed to have more of a short term effect. You’ll probably begin noticing the hunger control benefits 1-4 hours after taking the tablet.

If you take a LOVIDIA tablet 1-2 hours prior to lunch or dinner, you should notice that you feel full faster during your meal and feel less temptation to overeat. Stop eating when you feel comfortably full.

LOVIDIA XR is an extended release formula that lasts longer, but also takes more time to start working. You can expect to feel the hunger-lowering effect 3-12+ hours from the time you take a tablet.

Taking one LOVIDIA XR tablet with breakfast will typically help reduce hunger and increase fullness at your next meal. For people who have trouble with snacking in the evening or late night, it’s often more helpful to take one LOVIDIA XR tablet with lunch and one with dinner.

You can read more about the differences between LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR here.

Monitor your hunger level to pick up on subtle changes.

Because LOVIDIA’s effect can vary day-to-day depending on your diet and activity level, it can be hard to be sure it’s working. One way to help make the effects of LOVIDIA more obvious is to monitor your hunger level throughout the day. It only takes a few seconds, but it can make a big difference.

A few times during the day, stop what you’re doing and ask yourself, “how hungry am I right now?” Notice if you’re not feeling any hunger, your hunger is mild but manageable, or you’re so hungry you could eat your own arm. Note the time and when you last ate.

By identifying the times you’re most hungry, you’ll have a better idea of when you need LOVIDIA to help you conquer your cravings and keep hunger at bay. You’ll also be able to tell whether LOVIDIA or LOVIDIA XR is the right formula for you.

Katie reviewed LOVIDIA XR and said, “I haven’t noticed dramatic results, however, I am starting to notice subtle changes in appetite! I’m the type of person who can’t go very long without being hungry, but I am noticing that I can go for longer periods of time feeling full since taking Lovidia XR.”

The Bottom Line

If you feel like LOVIDIA isn’t working, the most likely reason is that the hunger control formula hasn’t had enough time to take effect. To get things moving in the right direction, you can:

● Try taking LOVIDIA at different times of day to fit your peak times of hunger
● Monitor your hunger level to observe subtle changes
● Take LOVIDIA close to the time you need it to be effective, and take LOVIDIA XR on a regular schedule (Tip: Use the LOVIDIA App to remind you when to take XR.)

If you still don’t feel a noticeable effect after following these suggestions, it may be that you don’t respond to LOVIDIA due to GLP-1 insensitivity, the make-up of your gut flora, or for genetic difference that make us all unique.

Our clinical studies have shown the LOVIDIA works for most people but not for everyone. That’s why we provide our 30-day money back guarantee.

13 Ways to Lose Weight Naturally

13 Ways to Lose Weight Naturally

To lose weight naturally means that you’re not going to extreme measures, such as surgery, to get rid of excess pounds. You’re making changes to your lifestyle that will help you lose weight.

Highly restrictive diets that promise fast results may be enticing, but these plans aren’t sustainable in the long run. Though it takes more time to meet your goals, natural weight loss is best achieved through a combination of eating fewer calories and exercising.

However, we know that losing weight is simple in theory and much harder to put into practice. So we’re sharing 13 simple ways to lose weight naturally and help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.

1 | Drink Water

Not only do we need to stay hydrated for our bodies to function properly, water is also one of the easiest ways to cut back on calories. Drinking a glass of water before each meal will help you feel full and eat less.

Replacing other high calorie beverages, such as soda or juice, with water will reduce your calorie intake.

2 | Exercise Regularly

Getting a moderate amount of exercise has been shown to have numerous health benefits, aside from helping with weight loss. People who get regular physical activity are at lower risk for a host of chronic health problems.

Exercise has also been shown to play an important role in maintaining weight loss. Once you’ve done the hard work of losing weight, even moderate amounts of exercise will help prevent you from regaining the weight.

3 | Eat Whole Foods & Avoid Processed Foods

Nutrient-dense, single-ingredient foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and eggs, provide many of the key components of a healthy diet. These foods are typically more filling and lower in calories.

Processed food is loaded with added sugar and fat, which makes it a poor choice if you’re trying to lose weight. What you gain in convenience, you lose in nutritional value.

4 | Cut Out Added Sugar

Added sugar is widely recognized as one of the leading causes of weight gain. It also contributes to chronic health problems like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. It’s very difficult to eat in moderate levels unless you avoid processed food and sugary beverages.

By eating mostly whole foods, you can decrease the added sugar in your diet. At this point, there’s no distinction between added sugar and naturally-occuring sugar on nutritional labels, so you have to check carefully for hidden sugar in items that appear healthy, such as yogurt or oatmeal.

5 | Get Enough Sleep

Sleeping might not jump out at you as an important factor for natural weight loss, but in multiple studies, individuals who got plenty of sleep had better weight loss results than those who didn’t. One possible reason might be that the earlier you go to sleep, the less time you’re awake to eat.

When you’re tired, you’re less likely to be physically active. We also tend to make poor food choices when we’re fatigued. Getting enough sleep can even benefit those with a genetic predisposition to obesity.

6 | Eat Fiber

Despite the numerous benefits of fiber for weight loss, the average American gets roughly half the daily recommendation of 14 grams per 1000 calories. Fiber-filled foods can help with hunger control and with the regulation of blood sugar levels, helping you to eat less without feeling deprived.

Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and nuts are all good sources of fiber. Soluble fiber found in the flesh of plant-based foods forms a gel-like substance in the gut, slowing the absorption of sugar and fat.

7 | Eat Healthy Fats

For a long time, fat got a bad rap so there are a lot of misconceptions about what type of fat we should be eating. Eating a moderate amount of healthy fats can actually help you lose weight.

Monounsaturated fats, such as those found in olive oil, avocado, and tree nuts, can help lower blood pressure and bad LDL cholesterol levels when replacing saturated fats in your diet.

Polyunsaturated fats, specifically Omega-3 fatty acids found in several types of fish, can have a multitude of positive effects such as reducing inflammation and fat build-up in the liver.

8 | Don’t Drink Your Calories

High calorie beverages, such as soda, juice, and many coffee drinks, are some of the worst saboteurs of a natural weight loss plan. Our brain recognizes liquid calories differently than those from solid food, so we often consume more calories while reaping no nutritional benefit.

Sugary drinks also make it easy to consume large amounts of fructose in a short period of time. Fructose can only be metabolised by the liver. When the liver is overloaded with fructose, it is forced to convert the fructose to fat.

9 | Supplement with Lovidia

We believe strongly that the patented Gut Sensory Modulation science behind our hunger-control pill, Lovidia, can be a valuable tool if you’re trying to lose weight naturally.

While Lovidia is not a magic pill, it can help you overcome hunger and cravings without unpleasant side effects. You can read more about Gut Sensory Modulation in our post, Understanding Weight Loss Supplements, Pills, Shakes, and Vitamins.

As always, we recommend you talk to your doctor or health care provider before taking any supplement, including Lovidia.

10 | Weigh Yourself Regularly

While your overall health is certainly not defined by the number on your scale, studies show that weighing yourself on a regular basis can be an asset when you’re trying to lose weight naturally. One possible reason is that you’re more aware of your progress or the negative consequences of poor food choices.

Be sure to weigh yourself at the same time each day for accurate results. If stepping on the scale every day seems to make you obsess over the number, try weighing yourself every few days instead.

11 | Cut Out Refined Carbs

At this point most of us know that not all carbohydrates are created equally. As carbohydrate foods are more refined, or processed, they typically decrease in nutritional value. Wheat is refined to produce white flour that creates a softer texture, but the fiber and vitamins are removed during the refining process.

The fiber in whole grains prevents carbs from being immediately turned into blood sugar so your body uses some of the carbs as fuel or to create muscle mass. Refined carbs also often have added fat and sugar, making the food even less healthy.

12 | Eat Protein-rich Foods

Protein is the nutrient that gives you the most bang for your buck when it comes to losing weight naturally. It takes more energy to digest and metabolize, which means your body uses more calories to process it than other nutrients.

Protein also makes you feel full faster and increases the hormones that signal fullness to your brain. Chicken, fish, and lean beef are all great sources of protein. For a more portable option to take with you on-the-go, try string cheese, hard boiled eggs, and smoothies made with protein powder.

13 | Try Intermittent Fasting

There are several different methods of intermittent fasting, including the 16/8 method and Eat Less Days (alternate day fasting.) Regardless of the method you choose, the purpose is to significantly reduce calories at some times, while eating “normally” the rest of the time.

While studies show that there are numerous potential benefits of intermittent fasting, one reason it is so helpful for natural weight loss is its simplicity. The easier a weight loss program is, the more likely you are to succeed.

Wrapping It Up

To lose weight naturally, you need to use more calories than you consume. Each of these 13 tools can help you to reduce your caloric intake or maximize your caloric output. This combination will help you succeed in losing weight and keeping it off long term.

The Best Weight Loss Programs for Men

2 Must-Have Features in the Best Weight Loss Programs for Men

You want to lose weight. That’s good. All change starts with desire.

But there’s a long road between knowing what you want and making it happen. We all have goals, but we what we really need is a plan for reaching them.

Following a weight loss program for men is like having a GPS navigation system for weight loss success.

The best weight loss programs for men are designed to show you the safest route to where you want to go, provide step-by-step directions to keep you on the right path, help you avoid roadblocks and dead ends, and even offer “roadside assistance” in cases of emergency.

Why a weight loss program for men?

To be clear, when we say “weight loss program for men,” we’re not talking about programs that only work for men.

But there are reasons why some weight loss programs for men are more effective than others. The biggest reason is biology.

Men’s bodies tend to have a higher ratio of muscle to fat than women’s bodies. Men are built differently and also lose weight differently.

As a result, some weight loss programs for men are more likely to be successful than others.

Specifically, because men are more muscular, they burn fat and calories more efficiently, which means their bodies tend to respond more quickly to changes in diet.

In general, when men and women undertake a similar calorie restriction relative to their weight, men drop weight faster.

You might think, then, that a weight loss program that focuses on fast results would be best for men.

The truth is, “rapid” or “quick” weight loss programs are often the worst choices for men.

That’s because they’re designed to help with the phase of weight loss men find easiest, the honeymoon stage.

See, nature’s dirty secret is that once men get into the weeds of weight loss ― after that first rush of pounds melts off ― men’s bodies adjust to the reduction in calories.

Once men get used to their new eating patterns, their basal metabolic rate resets, and they burn fat and calories less efficiently.

In other words, their metabolism slows down― an so does their weight loss.

That’s why the best weight loss program for men is one that:

1) is designed to prevent metabolic reset and

2) focuses on the long game.

Preventing basal metabolic rate from resetting

The human body is designed to adapt to change, including changes in diet and calorie consumption.

When we take in fewer calories, our bodies try to conserve energy by slowing down metabolism.

This is an evolutionary survival mechanism that dates back to a time ― not that long ago, actually ― when food was not as easy to come by.

Ever notice that guys in old movies from the 1930s, 40s and 50s look so skinny? That’s because supermarkets, packaged foods, refrigerators and large-scale farming are all relatively recent developments. People ate less frequently, and ate less in general, than we do today.

For most of human history, in fact, food was scarce, and our bodies are programmed to prevent us from starving by storing as much energy as possible in the form of fat.

So, when we restrict calories, our bodies have a primal reaction. They go into survival mode by resetting metabolism so we can maintain our weight even while eating fewer calories.

And that’s exactly the reason why most diets and weight loss programs fail for men. They work great at first, but then our bodies adjust to an eating pattern of fewer calories, and weight loss screeches to a halt. This is sometimes referred to as a weight loss plateau.

Fortunately, we’ve found a way to prevent metabolic reset: disrupt eating patterns and vary calorie consumption.

You may have heard bodybuilders talk about the need to shock or surprise their muscles into growing by changing up their workout routines with more reps, higher weights or different motions.

The same concept applies to losing weight. You need to keep your metabolism “guessing” by eating more on some days and less on others.

That’s what makes The LOVIDIA Way such an effective weight loss program for men. Several days a week, on Eat-Less Days, you eat only about 1/3 of your typical daily caloric intake. But you always eat normally for at least one day between Eat-Less Days.

Calorie variation keeps your metabolism burning hot, so you lose weight steadily without the typical plateaus.

Focusing on the long game

We’ve seen how calorie variation has a direct physiological impact on weight loss programs for men, but it also has equally important psychological benefits.

Enjoying at least one normal eating day between Eat-Less Days essentially eliminates many of the negative aspects of dieting, such as food cravings, self-deprivation, and monotony that can wear away motivation and cause men to give up before they reach their goals.

In short, knowing that you can eat normally tomorrow makes it easier to eat less today.

It also means men don’t have to completely give up favorite foods, eat foods they don’t like, spend hours grocery shopping for special foods, or learn a whole new way of cooking.

That’s why it’s easier for men to weave a weight loss program like The LOVIDIA Way into their lives, making it more likely they will be successful and keep weight off.

Of course, no two men are alike, and losing weight is a personal thing. We understand you’re a person first, and a man second, so a weight loss program that’s most effective for your best friend might be a total bust for you.

The Bottom Line

If you’ve tried losing weight before, you know it’s easy to get lost along the way. You probably have a good grasp of the basics, like eating healthier, eating less, and exercising more. But, as they say, easier said than done. A weight loss program for men may provide the structure and support you need to put all the pieces together and find success.

What’s in LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR?

whats in Lovidia

What’s in LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR?

It’s always smart to do your research before starting a new supplement. We also recommend that you talk to your doctor, especially if you have questions about specific health concerns or medications.

The active ingredients in LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR are all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, non-stimulatory, and GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

whats in Lovidia

LOVIDIA

The patented hunger control blend in LOVIDIA is made up of Stevia leaf extract, L-glutamine, L-leucine, lysine hydrochloride, and pomegranate fruit extract.

L-glutamine, L-leucine, and lysine hydrochloride are amino acids.

Other ingredients, used for binding purposes and to make the tablet coating, include dextrose, sodium alginate, modified cellulose, silicone dioxide, magnesium stearate, medium chain triglycerides, oleic acid, glycerin and stearic acid. All ingredients are GRAS.

LOVIDIA XR

The extended release (XR) formula in LOVIDIA XR includes the same ingredients as the original LOVIDIA tablet with the addition of berberine.

Berberine is an herb that has been shown in studies to boost production of GLP-1 and PYY, the hormones that tell your brain “I’m full” and signal that you should stop eating.

Are these ingredients safe?

All the ingredients in both LOVIDIA and LOVIDIA XR are generally recognized as safe. Neither tablet contains caffeine, other stimulants, or fat blockers. LOVIDIA works with your body’s natural digestive process to help you feel full faster and conquer cravings.

Are there any side effects?

Some customers taking LOVIDIA XR have experienced mild bloating and nausea due to the berberine. If you have a highly sensitive gastrointestinal system and are prone to stomach upset, we suggest you start with one LOVIDIA XR tablet per day for the first week.
