If you are someone who has struggled to lose weight over the years (the dreaded yo yo dieting merry-go-round), then you know that fad diets come and go. Most promise that you’ll lose a bunch of weight quickly. One of the newest fad diets to come on the scene is called the Suddenly Slim Diet. This diet claims you will lose up to 10 pounds in just 10 days.
Who wouldn’t want to experience that?
The promise of quick and easy weight loss is what draws most people to seek out this diet plan, but is the Suddenly Slim Diet safe?
First of all, let’s talk about the products that are a main part of this plan. There are three products involved:
Reneu – an herbal supplement that cleanses and detoxifies the body
Body FX – a meal replacement shake powder that you mix with milk
Slim ‘N Up – an herbal supplement that reduces hunger and increases energy
The supplements contain herbs found in similar diet formulas like: green tea, chromium picolinate, dandelion root, kola note, chitin, garcinia campogia, hydroxycitric acid, cayenne pepper, L-carnitine and many more. While it’s a common notion to think that all herbal remedies are safe. In fact, this is a myth. Herbal ingredients can raise blood pressure, cause heart palpitations, jitteriness, organ damage, etc.
You may or may not be sensitive to any one of the listed herbs above. Another concern is the amount of each herb in the Suddenly Slim formulations is unknown. Manufacturers of these types of diet supplements do not reveal their formulations, so you don’t know if you’re getting too much or too little of any one ingredient to conclude whether you’re going to have a good or bad reaction.
If this is a concern to you, you should do some research on diet pill herbal ingredients and their effects before making a decision to put them into your body. These companies use the lure of quick weight loss to draw you in, but remember there was a time when Ephedra was a main ingredient in diet pills and shakes. Ephedra was once touted as “safe” and a miracle weight loss cure. That is, until people started ending up in the hospital after taking it.
While Suddenly Slim no longer contains Ephedra (yes, it did at one time), you should still be cautious. Maybe you know someone who has lost a lot of weight on this program – some programs work great for some people. This doesn’t’ mean that you will experience the same kind of success.
If you’ve tried to lose weight on diet pills and shakes before and then subsequently gained back every pound you lost – or didn’t lose any weight, then there’s a strong possibility that you’ll experience the same results with the Suddenly Slim plan.
Because strict diets like this offer only a temporary solution. Sure, you might lose a few pounds and feel good for a month or so, but then you’ll grow tired of taking supplements and drinking diet shakes that leave you feeling hungry and moody. Plus, the expense involved with having to purchase the products every month will eat into your budget.
Many people have reported initial success with Suddenly Slim, but then say they’ve gained their weight back. The reason why is simple: using supplements and shakes to lose weight isn’t a very good long-term weight loss strategy. Also, this plan claims you can pretty much eat whatever you want in restaurants while on their plan.
Yeah, right. Have you seen the portions they serve in restaurants, lately?
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if the Suddenly Slim diet plan is safe for you, because everyone is different, the effects this diet will have on your body is unknown. However, I can tell you what diets really work – a diet plan that is based in reality and includes proper nutrition and moderate exercise, and that also helps you obtain realistic weight loss for a lifetime.
You can choose a temporary fix like Suddenly Slim, or, you can choose a weight loss plan that guides you into looking and feeling your best for the rest of your life. You can choose a plan that really teaches you how to stay slim and healthy. If you do it right, you won’t ever need to look at a fad diet plan again.
