2. What shipment cost is to be paid for an order?
When you make an order, the shipment cost is due once and independently from the payment method, depending on the order quantity and delivery country. You can find details about the price graduations here.
3. Why can I not have my order delivered to a packing station?
We send your order with UPS. Shipment to a packing station is therefore unfortunately not possible.
4. Why should I only consume 1 000 kcal per day?
The approx. 1 000 kcal are tailored individually to your metabolism. With the daily ration of vitelements, you consume 100% of your nutrient requirements, however, you keep a negative energy balance, which guarantees that you will lose weight.
5. Why should I eat the vitelements approx. every 2 hours?
By eating only 125 kcal each time, you remain below the sensory insulin threshold that makes the insulin levels “roller-coaster”. This means you avoid hunger pangs and it is possible to keep burning off fat.
6. Will I have to contend with a yoyo effect?
By consuming 100% of all the essential nutrients, your body is not lacking in anything. The metabolism constantly remains at the same level and there is no yoyo effect.
7. What am I allowed, what am I not allowed?
In the weight regulation phase, you should stick to the rules and not consume any additional food, alcohol or sugary drinks.
8. How long will the vitelements keep for?
The vitelements will keep for approx. 10 weeks. You will find more exact details printed on the packaging of each bar.
