“I love the way I look! Not only have I lost the weight and kept it off, but my energy levels are better than ever. The SlimStyles program is easy to follow, flexible and practical. The best thing is I didn’t feel deprived. I was never hungry and the shakes were great."
—RS, Vancouver

A weight loss trial was conducted at the Canadian Center for Functional Medicine using SlimStyles Meal Replacement Drink Mix with PGX from December to February, possibly the most difficult time of year to lose weight. In spite of the holiday season, participants were able to continuously lose body fat and achieve their weight loss goals. Most diets fail because they cause you to lose lean muscle and body water, slowing your overall metabolic rate which increases fat retention and increases the likelihood of gaining that weight back.

The researchers found that participants using the SlimStyles Meal Replacement Drink Mix consistently lost up to two pounds per week, which was primarily made up of body fat. In addition, the SlimStyles weight loss program maintained lean muscle mass and did not affect body water levels.

PGX is a blend of naturally-occurring water-soluble polysaccharides (fibres) that can absorb many times their weight in water. It is the result of years of intensive clinical and laboratory research at Canadian universities, in collaboration with Canadian Center for Functional Medicine, based on the research of Dr. Vladimir Vuksan, a leading North American expert on nutrition and its effects on metabolism, obesity, and appetite regulation.

It was found that a certain soluble fibre could stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce blood cholesterol levels, regulate appetite and help people lose weight without feeling deprived, a key to life long weight management. PGX has an even greater effect on appetite and weight loss as its water-binding capacity is 5 times greater than the fibre studied, and 10 to 20 times greater than other soluble fibres such as psyllium or guar gum. This means that smaller doses of PGX can have greater beneficial health effects than other fibres, as well as supporting safe, sustainable weight loss.

The SlimStyles Meal Replacement Drink Mix with PGX is initially a smooth appealing texture. Once ingested, the PGX absorbs water causing it to thicken and expand for a few hours afterward. This expansion helps to prevent overeating, food cravings and snacking, making healthy weight loss possible. It is important to drink lots of water with PGX to ensure proper absorption. PGX helps your appetite under control for hours and provides a sense of fullness.

Dosage

Add 2 scoops (57 g) of SlimStyles powder to 350 mL – 500 mL of water and shake in a shaker cup or mix in blender until smooth to make a delicious, satisfying drink. Drink immediately after mixing, as it thickens quickly. Use 1 – 2 times daily as a meal replacement. When first taking SlimStyles begin with 1 scoop (28.5 g) in 175 mL – 350 mL of water and gradually increase to 2 scoops (57 g) as directed above.

Contraindications

  • PGX can slow the rate of absorption of medications so it is recommended to take any oral medications 1 hour before SlimStyles Meal Replacement or 2 to 3 hours after.
  • Diabetics must monitor their blood sugar and adjust their medication accordingly as the PGX in SlimStyles helps control blood sugar and it may lessen the need for medications or insulin over time. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use.

Additional Information

 Children: Considered safe for children at on-half the adult dose for children under 12. It is imperative that the child take in adequate water with each serving of SlimStyles while on the program.

Pregnancy and Nursing: Although SlimStyles with PGX is very safe, it is advisable for pregnant women to check with their health care practitioner prior to use. It is also highly inadvisable for a woman to go on a weight loss program unless directed by her health care practitioner while pregnant. 

Seniors: No special precautions known, however, seniors should consult with their health care practitioner prior to use. It is imperative to drink a large glass of water within an hour after taking any SlimStyles Meal Replacement Drink Mix.
