What is Vital Momentum? What is Viatrim?
As the name suggests, the Vital Momentum Rapid Weight Loss System is way to lose weight quickly. It includes a special diet plan and a unique homeopathic remedy called Viatrim that can be used during the program or anytime before or after. The word "vital" comes from the term "vital response" which is the natural healing mechanism of your body. The word "momentum" is based on two things: 1) The idea of triggering and balancing the vital response mechanism and 2) Studies have shown that losing faster
in the early stages of weight loss is better in the long run because it keeps you motivated to continue. Please read this page for a full explanation and background story.

Are there any health concerns or risks with the diet itself?
Please see the Health Questions FAQ page. The Vital Momentum system has been designed to be as safe as possible when instructions are followed but there are some health questions to consider with any rapid weight loss program.
What is the story behind Vital Momentum and Viatrim?
Great question - and one we have answered in detail here (it is an interesting story worth reading!).
Does this program work for everyone?
Everyone is different so no program will be perfect for everyone; however this program has a very high success rate . Based on our customer surveys, 94.2% of participants lose at least 0.4 lbs per day (almost 3 lbs per week). The average is 0.7 lbs per day (or roughly 5 pounds per week). A single course lasts 3 to 4 weeks, after which you take a break. If you are one of the few who are not satisfied, we have you covered with a 100% refund guarantee -- unlike doctors, clinics, pharmacies or websites who wouldn't refund a dime if a treatment or prescription didn't work. So you can give the Vital Momentum system a try with confidence in how well it is working, and at the same time you are covered by our guarantee!
Can I take Viatrim alone without following a special diet?
If you want to lose a lot of weight quickly, your best bet is to do what most of our customers do: the full program, which follows a special diet. You certainly can however take Viatrim any time without following any particular diet. Like any supplement or drug it takes time to work so you can't expect dramatic overnight results when taken alone. We suggest using it for several months for best results but you should begin to notice positive changes (emotional, mental or physical) right away. There's no risk in giving it a try. Please read this page for a background explanation.
Does Viatrim have any side effects?
No, homeopathic remedies like Viatrim have no known side effects. You can take Viatrim with any other drug or supplement, and with existing medical conditions. The worst thing that can happen is that your body simply doesn't respond to it. That said, it is always best to check in with your doctor and of course you should not stop taking any medications you are currently taking.
What food am I allowed to eat? Can you explain more about the diet?
The original diet was developed at the Salvator Mundi International Hospital in Italy and tested on thousands of patients under the direction of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons who originally used it as part of his "HCG protocol". (Note, however, that "HCG" is not a part of the Vital Momentum system; the dietary plan (food) itself is the only similarity).
The diet is balanced, unlike many extreme "fad" diets out there. It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch. You eat them in specific portions and combinations. Allowed proteins are veal (low grade), beef (95% lean whole cuts), chicken breast (boneless, skinless), crab, crayfish, lobster, shrimp, and any fresh, white-fleshed fish. Allowed vegetables are asparagus, beet greens, cabbage, celery, chard, chicory greens, cucumber, fennel, green salad, onion, red radishes, spinach, and tomato. Allowed fruits are apples, strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit. Limited starches include grissini (breadstick) or Melba toast. Vegetarian protein substitutions (may slow weight loss) are a protein shake, soy patty, egg (1 whole 3 egg whites), cottage cheese or fat-free milk.
How many calories per day can I eat? Will I be hungry or uncomfortable?
First, you REALLY should read this page as this is really the basis of the Vital Momentum. Summarizing it is difficult and you are doing yourself a disservice by not reading that first. However, because this is a Q & A ... we'll attempt to give a very brief explanation.
First, everyone knows that reducing calories compared to what your body is burning is a proven way to lose weight. And if you could drop calories in a big way, weight loss would be even quicker. The problem is doing it. That's where Viatrim and the "secret" diet comes in. Thousands of people have succeeded on the program, many of them for the first time, after every other diet or program has failed. Whether Viatrim is the magic or whether the diet itself is magic isn't fully known but the bottom line is that participant results are clear and unmistakable. Results are results-- that's what everyone wants and that's what our customers love. If that's what YOU want then all you have to do is plug into the system and follow the simple program. As for calories, it includes two two options: a 500 calorie plan and a 1000 calorie "flex" plan. Most customers can follow the 500 calorie plan without problems and have a great experience.
As for hunger, the vast majority of our customers indicate they were either not hungry (unlike other diets where they were starving), or they felt in control and surprisingly little hunger and had plenty of energy. Everyone is different, however. Some hunger in the first week is possible as the body adjusts to the diet. After all, the Vital Momentum system does follow a restrictive diet; naturally, that may make you uncomfortable and require at least some effort -- it's not like you are eating chocolate cake and ice cream! ;) The bottom line is that if you are serious about losing the weight then you CAN do this and if you're like the vast majority of customers, your efforts will pay off in a big way with exciting weight loss.
Do I have to exercise?
No. Exercise is not a mandatory part of this system. While vigorous exercise *might* increase the amount of weight you lose while on this plan, it would not be significant and is not recommended because you can easily become too exhausted. That leads to discouragement and frustration. However, we do recommend moderate activity for all of the other benefits you receive, including stress relief and cardiovascular health.
If you are already accustomed to exercising at a certain level and would like to continue, do so, but do not over do it. Pay attention to your body's response. Scale down the intensity of the workouts if: (1) you don't have the energy to get through it; (2) you start feeling ill or light headed; (3) you gain weight the next day; or (4) you don't have the energy to get through the day after you work out.
Our suggestion for those who want to exercise is that you walk for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Walking is great exercise and contributes to your health in a variety of ways. It helps relieve stress, keeps the bowels moving, conditions your cardiovascular system, and encourages better blood/oxygen circulation. When you are are finished with the and are back on a regular diet you can then pick up the intensity of your exercise routines.
What is homeopathy or homeopathic medicine?
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. It has been around for over 200 years. It has been the primary medical system of choice for a great number of people worldside for many years. It can be used as an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs and surgical procedures or in conjunction with it.
Homeopathic remedies have been used for many years to very effectively bring about healing and better health without the negative consequences and side effects that allopathic methods often have. Its popularity in the United States has grown dramatically over the last decade because homeopathy is effective, all natural and safe. It is widely accepted that there are no dangerous side effects with homeopathic remedies, and they can be taken along with other medications without worrying about adverse reactions.
Homeopathic formulations function on the theory of "like heals like" and that a very small amount of the active ingredient brings about change, because of the unique way homeopathic products are produced. The ingredients in Viatrim are produced by taking ingredients known at full strength to cause symptoms you are trying to eliminate, and making it into a sublingual mixture through a process of dilution and succussion. (See next question)
How are homeopathic remedies proven?
Homepathic 'provings' use the same gold standard as other drugs and supplements; that is, under double-blind placebo-controlled conditions, so neither the persons using the medication nor the administrator know who is getting the active medication and who is not (this ensures the effects are real and not imagined). The substance being tested is created in different potencies at a homeopathic pharmacy. Participants are carefully monitored and the symptoms observerd are separated into mental, emotional and physical categories. This gives a comprehensive picture of the new medicine and the mental, emotional and physical symptoms it is capable of curing. The information is then added to homeopathic materia medica reference books. For more information, see this page on the School of Homeopathy website.
What is 'potency' or 'potentization'?
A homeopathic medicine (‘remedy’) is made into different strengths by a process of dilution and succussion (the application of energy through vibration). Remedies start off in the form of matter but are translated into energy that can influence the energetic regenerative field everywhere in the body. It can be thought of as an 'instruction', in that it is without physical substance but has the power to exert an influence. This is congruent with Albert Einstein's theories where he demonstrated that matter is simply another form of energy, which implies that matter is inter-convertible with other forms of energy.
