Default cheaper substitiutes for the supplements?

Hi all;

Newbie here! I and my friend just signed up today and were stunned by the cost of the supplements. It would be $500 a month for both of us.

We can afford the $298 each (uh sort of) for 17 weeks but not $500 a month extra.-- yeesh

I will buy the Relacore from Walmart that can sub for the Corti TRim but what about the other stuff?

We would love some suggestions from the experienced folks here-- thanks in advance for your help!

Sadie

A couple of months ago someone from corporate was helping out at my center and she weighed me in. She asked why I wasn't buying any of their supplements other than HNS. (I bought my own flax, multi, B-6, B-12 and Co Q10.) I told her it was the cost. She said that if she had to recommend only one supplement it would MRC - 6.

Here is something I posted last year, when we went searching for cheaper alternatives:

The MRC-6, we found a substitute at a few weight loss clinics, KLB-5. KLB-5 is the exact same as MRC-6, minus the B-6, which you can get very cheap anywhere (not to mention, there is pleny of B-vitamin in every multivitamin sold in the centers, or elsewhere!). The bottles were $24.00 for 180, which here is saving $15 a bottle. (last time I checked)

Same ingredients as MRC-6, minus the Vitamin B. Going to email them to make sure the ingredients are of the same quantity as MRC-6
