Anyone heard of it? Nope? Neither had I. At least here in Texas, it hasn't made the rounds yet. A friend gave me their 7day trial pack which includes the 'slim' drink and the accelerator pills. Just one pill a day, I could handle that, and some flavor packet for my water? Sure, why not.

So on Dec 12, Thursday I started the week long 'trial period' after my gluttonous conference days and not getting access to any solid cardio work that scale was evil and had bloated up to a new number not seen in months (insert my angry shocked face and cursing at the scale)
Starting weight: 158.0
I followed the program except for Sunday when I completely flaked on it being at home. The instructions are to take the 'slim' packet in your water 30minutes before a meal and to take the accelerator with it in the mornings. I did that the first two days, but struggled since breakfast is typically forgotten (but I'm working on it.) But the following week I figured out my schedule better and would take the accelerator with my coffee and oatmeal and then take the 'slim' drink while working out at noon. The drink is tasty, almost a cherry/raspberry type flavor...so it worked for something to keep me hydrated during T25 or Insanity last week.
This review was originally planned for last Friday, two days after the "7" days...but to be fair I waited for Saturday's weight to really gauge it. I had a really salty blackened tilapia for dinner on Thursday and I swelled up on Friday. ha!
Ending weight: 154.0
Wow, 4pounds right? That's awesome right?
Breaking it down for reals:
1. the 158 was bloated up from my more normal and average of 155-156ish.
2. I worked out like normal, which was an hour and a half for 4 days between strength training in the mornings and cardio at lunch (T25x2, Insanity-x1, Zumba-x1, abripper-x1)
3. I did change my diet and increased my calorie intake by 200 a day due to oatmeal in the mornings.
4. I did not have any gastro side effects, which is good for me.
5. I did notice a flatter stomach and 'felt' smaller and less bloat. I did feel physically better.
The "Slim" Drink
It tastes great, you have to shake it up quite a bit, but the generic 'energy' orange drink or the 'propel' packets works just a good for me.
I never noticed a difference other than the first day when I accidentally took it on an empty stomach and felt jumpy despite the 'no caffeine' claims.
Was it worth it? Honestly I think only being a 7day trial I can't fairly answer that. It really should be a 14day cycle to really get valid results or impact.
Would I do it again?
If it were free or discounted, yes.
