  1. hey, can I take appetite suppressants with this diet and will I continue to lose weight afterwards?

    Is Copenhagen diet the same as 13 days metabolism diet.

    I have just finished the metabolism diet and I don’t think I have lost any weight.
    thanks

    1. Hi There,
      It is not recommended to take appetite suppressants along with this diet. Because they come with many unwanted side-effects. Yes, Copenhagen diet is the same as metabolism diet. Can you please elaborate a bit more on how you went about it?

      Thanks,

      Sarah
