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.

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.
