To maintain your weight…
You can eat regular foods like dairy, fats, carbohydrates, vegetables, fruits and proteins when following Slim 4 Life. To properly gain the desired results from GNC Lean Shakes, consumers are directed to use the shakes as a replacement for meals at least once per day. I would really appreciate it. Results revealed that the poorest results came from the exercise-only group. Hated the product Christy Verified User.
What are GNC Lean Shakes?
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.
Because she tried south beach diet and all appetite suppresant pills which most of them deprive her sleep and reacting with medication which she used to take. So I may not agree with you in this matter.
But thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to express my opinion. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I was very excited. I highly recommend it. It was way to expensive for us. You said you followed the food rules and lost… did you also use any of the over the counter bars or thurmal boost pills to try to help it along??
Find Omega3 and a Carb blocker. Fat does not turn into muscle because you workout and fat can only be burned off with diet and exercise and you can only gain fat when you eat too much combined with being too lazy. It is perfectly fine to lift weights to tone up if you're a woman or build more muscle if you're a guy as you lose weight since building muscle increases your metabolism making you burn fat faster but….
Here is 2 things you should know if you are going to lose weight and build muscle at the same time…. I'm so close to just throwing in the towel and eating 1, calories a day to lose these last vanity pounds. Now matter what I do I can't tap into the fat storage on my hips and bum. I'm around lb and want to lose about lb. Should I incorporate strength training for only 20 mins a day to maintain muscle? I don't want to go on the Hcg diet just to lose this last bit of lower body fat that is going no where!
I'm sick of working out and eating clean for nothing. Hi I'mcm tall and weigh about 58kg. I read most of your diet and workout plans but im unable to do them because im currently studying abroad. The school i go to provides the meals and the store doesnt sell any fruits, vegetables or fruit juices.
So far i've been drinking 8 bottles of ice cold water and laying off of rice. What should i do? I get that being on a VLCD diet forever is unworkable. I know people gain because they go back to eating 'normally' but isn't that because their 'normal' is usually over their maintenance cals - hence getting overweight in the first place?
I'm currently eating - cals a day and finding it very easy to stick to. I'm currently lbs started at aiming to be I never want to be fat again! And yes, I'm extremely lazy at the moment lol, but I'm trying to change that and I wanted to err on the side of caution so put 'sedentary' on the calculator. Your youtube channel has helped me lose 12kgs in 2 and a half months from kgs to kgs.
I am following hiit for 30mins thrice a week plus gym and a proper diet, now I am starting itermittent fasting 8.
Before I had my son I had a proportioned body. My upper body matched my hips. But now my upper body is so much wider than my lower body. How do I change this? Are there any workouts to gain muscle without using weights? I don't have weights and can't afford to buy them right now and can't afford the gym either. Hi I'm Jamie, I'm around 5'5" or something and I'm 16 I currently weigh 65 kilos and need to get roughly around to 56 kilos I want to lose at least kilos in 2 weeks but even tho I'm taking rapid loss shakes and eating small amounts of food it doesn't seem to be working, also I can't exercise out of the house so I'm forced to do quiet exercises in my room but it doesn't seem to do anything.
I really would like alittle help on how to lose at least 5 kilos in 2 weeks? Can u help me: I got down 7 kilos but then stopped on 65 and can't seem to get below it.
Hi Adrian, I'm 47, 5'3" and started losing weight with my husband by cutting down the carbs and working out everyday. I've still have a way to go. Love this site; it's given me much info.
Do you have any toning exercises? Like for the upper arms, mid-section, and hip and thighs. Those are the problem areas I'd like to work on. Hi, i am 28 years old my bmi is Hi adrian first of all thanks for all you do. You trully are an amazing guy for helping us become better with our bodies. Im a 24 year old mother of 1 as a teen the most i wighed was after the years now ihave gained weight.

That day i wighed in at lbs its been aproximetly 8 weeks now and im at lbs today, loosing about 1or 2 pounds a week and i feel great knowing that this time im doing things right and getting closer to my goal.
My goal is to loose 20lbs and weigh at most lbs. Once im at that point ill see if i want to loose more or not. Now my question is should i keep doingjust cardio and your interval training videos and wait till im at to start toning or shouldi do both right now So its very hard to maintain a healthy weight. I have started aerobics and treadmill. I have been working out at least 6x a week for a month now. My clothes are fitting me better but the scale is not moving. Any suggestions on how I drop the weight with my metabolism not working right.
I started phentermine last month and have lost 17lbs. Down from to I haven't noticed a difference in my clothes though. I've been constantly bugging my husband to weigh himself to make sure the scale is right and it seems to be.
When should I notice a difference? Is it safe to of lost 17lbs in 5 weeks? Hi there, I've just been reading through your site and find that you contradict what most nutritionists say about starvation mode ans eating under calories a day and so I was wondering if I could express some concerns I have to you and hopefully you can put my mind at ease about some things?
Hi I am 5'5 and weight I am 51 and going thru menopause. I recently started watching my diet 5 to 6 small meals a day and working out. Lost 10 pounds in 3 wks. I have always been active I wear a size I want to know I'm 5 foot 5 and 47 kg. I used to weigh around 60 kg but then I started eating calories a day and got to the weight I am right now.
I want to maintain my weight now and myfitnesspal says I can eat around and maintain it. Is this really true? I'm afraid I'll gain all the weight back. Right now I'm eating cals 5 days a week and on the weekends. I used to be very healthy 5 years a go, and gain pounds, basically 10 pounds per year aprox. I am 5'5 and 26 years old, Ive been to doctors and all of them say i should weight from lbs, now Although my main goal is to get and be healthy for the rest of my life, not only to look good, but to be able to do the things I used too, I have an emergency to loose weight.

I know you posted the emergency plan for 20 pnds for 1 month, what can I do after that for the other two months? I dont expext to loose 60 lbs in 3 months, sense is not healthy, but at least , pictures are forever, and want to look healthy and good in my wedding pictures. What do yo recomend?
Sorry for all the time a took. Also, Im very healthy, ive done all test with the doctors, and got my self in to the gym, and taking coffee bean extract 30 min before breakfast. Have a great day!
I suggest you do this plan here for the long term and no matter what diet you do you will lose a lot of weight very fast at the start of the plan. When taken consistently as a meal replacement for one to two weeks, however, results from GNC Lean Shakes were fairly positive with users reporting an average loss of five pounds per month.
Mix it up using their suggestion of orange juice. I also like the vanilla powder one which tastes great using their suggestion of cinnamon and graham crackers. Just not so much cinnamon! I just use one teaspoon not the recommended tablespoon. Even then there is a weird after taste. We appreciate that GNC Lean Shakes provide a significant amount of fiber to assist with regularity and appetite suppression.

Do Not Send Email Notifications. I just bout my very first one today since it was recommended by my boyfriend who works at GNC and I loved it. I bought the bottle just to try it and bought two small packages for tomorrow morning.
I have not tried it with water yet but the flavor that I got was Chocolate and it was great! I am very happy and will continue, however, I eat my one meal at lunch instead of dinner. I tried four flavors of the shakes and ended up returning all of them. It was quite disappointing. Keeping a low calorie and low carb diet is best for any diet shake or supplement.
Avoid foods high in fat. Program actually wants you to use the shake in place of food, Bill. I have been using this shake for a few months and love it! I am prior military and my husband is Active Army and we workout a lot and use this as a meal replacement once a day, instead of the recommended 2. I use the Lean Shake 25, which is 25 grams of protein and it works better than the regular LS because of the added protein.
Good luck on the weight loss! I work out early in the morning, I am also veteran, I take my after my work out, then I meal prep on Sunday for the rest of the week, my big meal is my lunch, I lite meal is diner. Just keep breastfeeding and the weight will fall off. I love the lean shake, im currently a breastfeeding mother of a 2 month old and I been looking up if its safe to drink well breastfeeding. I workout days a week. Some meal replacement programs are not safe for nursing mothers.
Above all, ask your doctor, Heather. I dislike the taste and after looking at all of ingredients, there is creamer, and many additives I cannot pronounce. I am wondering how long the normal person stays on this product and is it a way of life for them now or did it jump start you and then you could regulate your intake?
I started using GNC Lean Shake a year ago and usually have shakes most days for breakfast and lunch along with some fruit or greek yogurt. I lost 45 lb in 9 months and maintained it through the holidays. I find the vanilla and cookies and cream the most tastey. If I creep up on the weight, I just fill in with this again to get back on track. For more information, see our full Advertising Disclosure.
