What you should know: I believe in balancing health and happiness.
With kids and a dog, they are still looking great! I am very happy to have found your blog as well!!! We love our floors! I might be your new biggest fan — so glad I found your blog. No, I did not undergo weight loss surgery; I lost it through diet and exercise. You are an amazing person and I love your story! I have been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now after stumbling across it on Pinterest, and I just had to tell you how much I adore you and your site.
Slim 4 Life Ingredients
The only thing you lose is your sanity and money if you are truely trying to lose alot of wieght this is not for you. Please aviod the same trappings I did the advertisement was misleading. Cut out ALL fast food drink losts of water and move. I agree with Cristy!!
This program cuts your calories way too low to be healthy long not part of a medical field and have no medical training. The scrubs are deceptive as is the advertisements and representations. If you want any information, email me at alstewart2 sbcglobal. Do you get a response to the corp office number, if so I would love for you to share. Did anyone find a number to a corporate office- I am very unhappy with them and how I was treated- I was not losing the 3 to 5 pounds quaranteed and now am just getting blown off by the center.
I certainly do not agree with how you felt you were treated by the Slim for Life representative, as she should have maintained a professional attitude and responded to your needs with understanding,and explaniations, rather than insult. The result would be that as people were leading a healthy lifestyle, taking care of their medical issues with herbals, the Drs industry would be negatively affected. I have used herbal supplements for many medical issues that I have encountered in my life with little to no side affects, I have been able to avoid the Dr Appointments and the prescriptions, with the long and distubing list of possible side affects that I may encounter which is longer and more damaging than the symptoms to the initial health issue I was encountering.
There are alternative solutions out there. I have several friends that have been very successful with the Slim 4 life plan as well as other plans that are availble. The internet is a great resource for research. You are absolutely right. I was saying the same thing when I was reading what the doctor said. What in the world could an herbal drug do to hinder your prescription drug except for maybe keep the prescription side affects from killing you? You should really be looking at what that prescription is doing to your system as opposed to the herbs.
I was on Weight Watchers for over a year and lost alot of weight but did not stick with it so I have gained half of it back.
I just joined Slim 4 Life because you can talk to someone for support daily one on one instead of once a week in front of a large group. I have high blood pressure and high colest. Can you tell me what program they use for people with these conditions? I started slim4life Dec. I did loose down to lbs and really maintained at about to as the year finished out — however I began to show symptoms of something.
Went to doctor and turns out that my liver has been affected and that something has brought this on — I do wonder if it was all of the thermoboost powder which I drank on a daily basis for the year along with the thermo snacks required during weight loss.
If you have had a similar issue please respond back to me ASAP — I am unable to find out much since slim4life is now slimgenics and they no longer allow past participates to purchase product. I am interested in anything that might be similar to my situation. Hi, I did slim 4 life as well and lost about 35 lbs. Before I started, I had normal liver function tests. When I had my blood tested, post S4L i had elevated liver function x2 , I recently went back and had it checked again and now I have elevated liver function x3.
The only thing in my life that changed during that time was that I was on S4L. I highly suspect that either the carb blockers or the red grays have affected my liver. I am no longer on S4L and I no longer take any of their supplements. I never used the thermoboost powder but I took all the supplements as directed during the program.
I too am being evaluated for elevated liver function. It started with a dull ache in the liver area right after I started slimgenics. I have an ultrasound tomorrow, will keep you posted. I have been off the supplements for at least a month but am still having the pain…. I started slim4life in May, at lbs…am now at and while I love the way I look, my hair is falling out and my kidney function is out of whack as well as my ferritin levels have bottomed out.
I would just like to know how the product work? Another thing is how much it cost to get started with the program? Is this something i could do without paying a large amount of money? What are the key elements to losing weight on this program?
What makes this program different from the other programs out? Slim 4 Life is a good program. They do teach you the essentials of eating healthy. However, the weight that you lose is great but, you may also be losing muscle since they do not incorporate working out into the program.
You do take supplements such as a daily vitamin, essential fatty acids fish oil and an appetite suppressant they call the metabolizer not to mention the protein bars and shakes that run more than I went from to in a short amount of time. Once, I hit I plateaued miserably. I did all that they asked me to do and could not lose any more weight. I was basically told, they could not help me. I left Slim 4 Life and they still call me wanting me to come in.
I work out now and still eat healthy but, I eat corn, carrots, and cheese. All of which is forbidden until you lose ALL the weight. I am happy and healthy and still am losing in a healthy way on my own.. Wish I had read this page before I spent almost two thousand dollars on Slim 4 Life. I was on the program for aproximately three and a half weeks going to the store four times a week for weigh ins.
I lost six pounds by drinking tons of water and taking there suplements which ending up making my heart race. I ended up in the Doctors office thinking I was having a heart attack.
Believe me there is no money back guarantee. This turned out to be one big mistake….. Hi, l feel the same way two thousand dollars on slim 4 life. The pills did not do a thing for me. I need to get some of my money back.
I tried slim for life a year ago and it is so disappointing. Once you break the diet down you are allowed to eat between calories a day! I spent over 2K on slim for life to lose 30 pounds. I took all the nasty pills and drank the nasty power boost and did the whole thing. I lost about 28 in 12 weeks.
But I am healthier and happier. I was not obese but took off the weight for vanity. I lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks…. Dieting is about Calories in and Calories out…. I only had 18 lbs. I feel very jittery and weak. I am a mother and cannot really focus and be there for my kids the way I need to be because of the way I feel.
I did the Atkins diet years ago and went from a size 12 to a 2 in months and never felt like this. I have lost maybe 4 lbs. Now here i am at 5 months and one thing i have noticed is that even though i am not doing the diet that well, i am still using supplements and i am loosing hair like crazy. At first i thought it might be my age as i am 58, or maybe a medication, even though i had been on it for months, but this is crazy loss. Yes, I too was losing hair like crazy. I have very fine thin hair so this was a real concern.
I also thought it might be my age as I was 50 the first time I did the program. I gained all the weight back and went back a second time and had the same issue with hair loss. I only wanted to loose 23 lbs. I did loose 6 lbs, though, and felt pretty good. Any by the way, my stomach started to hurt really bad about the 4th week into the program… and yes, this is absolutely a no money back program, which to me is horrible. If the pills are causing sickness, their should be some type of refund, even half would be great.
My reason for trying the program was to get off blood pressure meds, which for 4 weeks I did. I am also trying the green smoothies now, and walking more. I really want to get off the meds for good and loose the weight as well…. I may be different from all. My wife got in to slim for life three months ago weighing LB. But now she is LB she really enjoys the food she is really energetic.
So she loves it and she said it is worth paying the money. I told you we're new at this didn't I?

I am so blessed!! Hope you enjoy your stay and I hope you come back and visit again soon. I found partially hydrogenated oils in some Weight Watchers frozen dinners, snack cakes, and ice creams. One of the worst is high fructose corn syrup. You owe it to yourself to stop buying these toxic products. This program blows the Weight Watchers processed-to-death meals out of the water. Watch the video, and see what the program is all about here.

Actually she once said that cottonseed oil is the worst vegetable oil because it is not regulated since cotton is a fiber crop. She exposed it, albeit incorrectly as is often the case. Cottonseed oil is as regulated as any other vegetable oil crop.
Very comparable to any other vegetable oil. Thanks for this great post. I know a good friend of mine who has worked for weight watchers for years. She did lose weight on weight watchers initially, but she is still over weight.
I am afraid of her reaction to this article, but I will share it anyways. I feel compelled to share this since the ingredients on the products in this article are horrendous. As for cottonseed oil Kobi, it is the most horrible oil for sure. Cotton is not even a food crop so it is sprayed even more than other food crops.
Cottonseed oil is considered a food crop and regulated as such. Nestle supposedly has Water rights over distribution in California. Joe Biggs of Infowars is investigating this, can you help him? Weight Watchers is a great program and not everyone eats the pre-packaged foods. I cook all my own fresh food and count my points. Me, too , lost 28 lbs on weight Watchers, but make own food. They do need to be put on notice about these awful products tho! This post is missing a few pieces.
The meal to which you refer was designed for people on a diet who are still seeking a comfort food. This is probably why it is their most complicated label. I think this piece is overly critical and presumptuous, as these meals are an attempt to provide low-calorie, convenient alternatives while still maintaining a specific target consumer base. The preservatives have recently been taken out of the meals.
FYI not every food company is evil and trying to kill everyone. I agree with you completely. But sometimes, as someone who works full time and goes to school, I grab one out of convenience. And, like you said, for the comfort. This is one of the reasons I left their program. Values for low fat and highly processed items that are not necessarily clean or real food. It always amazes me that people would defend wrong, then attack you for voicing your opinion.
The question is not which foods are bad, and why some are okay. They are capitalizing on their name, brand, and goodwill with people who are trying to be healthy.
That trust from the consumers should be respected, not traded in for dollars. Some of their products help people stay fat.
