Permission MUST be sought to reproduce any posts within this forum. The result of changing to this way of eating is that you will lose weight. Totally don't work for me. So now it looks like i will have to switch brands. Have tried some of the celebrity slim and dissolves really well and tastes great.
About the programme
I think the shakes are great for kick-starting your metabolism so that any diet plan you use has a much better chance of sticking!!
I wouldn't stay on it for a long time though. I thought the Celebrity Slim had a great variety of flavours and they do dissolve really well, but I just found the diet itself a little unrealistic for me and my lifestyle. The Slimplicity one has or had when I did it only two flavours - both very nice, but the only decision was Chocolate or Vanilla!!! But in saying that, I used to add fresh fruit and honey and it did give it a bit more flavour variety.
I thought the eating plan with Slimplicity was fantastic, as it is really just a lifestyle change and you can easily incorporate the family on it. I just find that I don't have the will power to follow these on my own at home, but I do if I have an appointment with someone, makes me feel like I have to prove something! My froend just started the celbrity slim diet and she thinks it is great.
I was thinking of doing it just befor xmas so I can fit into a nice summer dress If you are keen on a "shake" based diet that is prescriptive, which may help you keep on track perhaps? For 2 meals a day, have this "smoothie" ml Skimmed milk 2 heaped teaspoons of Phylissium Husks 1 heaped teasoon of InLiven probiotic Blend together with ONE only of the following: Then for your other meal, g protein grilled, steamed or baked served with as much veggies or salad as you like.
No dressing or butter etc. I have lost weight very sucessfully and healthily doing this. But as with all things "diet", as soon as I eat "normally" again I stack it back on! Hi everyone, Just an update. I was going quite well on the shakes but had to stop due to lack of funds unfortunately, as we are trying to save to build our house. I have put the weight back on in the last couple of months due to my own stupidity. Have not had the will power.
Plus been on night shift and too lazy to cook healthy meals so we have spent too much on takeaway. So much for saving for our house. Lucy, where do i got the husk from???? Does the shake taste terrible?? Does it work out cheaper than buying the shakes. Might have to go on that cabbage soup diet Are there any other diy-at-home cleansing diets anyone knows about??? And no, the sahke doesn't taste terrible at all Here is a 7 day kickstart that I have done, that works a treat: Eat all of the fruit you want except bananas.
Eat only your soup and the fruit for the first day. For drinks- unsweetened teas, cranberry juice and water. Eat as many fresh, raw or cooked vegetables of your choice. Try to eat leafy green vegetables and stay away from dry beans, peas and corn. Eat all the vegetables you want along with your soup.
At dinner, reward yourself with a big baked potato with butter. Do not eat fruit today. Mix Days One and Two: Eat all the soup, fruits and vegetables you want.
Bananas and Skim Milk: Eat as many as eight bananas and drink as many glasses of skim milk as you would like on this day, along with your soup. This day is supposed to lessen your desire for sweets. Up to g of beef and up to six fresh tomatoes. Drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water this day to wash the uric acid from your body. Eat your soup at least once this day. You may eat grilled or baked chicken instead of beef but absolutely no skin on the chicken.
Celebrity Slim Rapid differs from the original Celebrity Slim products because it's formulated to be mixed with skim milk and designed to be consumed 3 times a day in order to feel full and maximise weight loss results. L-Carnitine accelerates the burning of dietary fats, boosts energy levels, builds lean muscle mass and increases the thermogenesis production of heat within the body. How does it work? When L-Carnitine is consumed, fats are burned faster, and less fat is stored in the body tissue, which can therefore have a positive effect on the blood lipid levels.
In addition, it has been shown that L-Carnitine reduces the sensation of hunger and thus facilitates a reduction in food intake. We recommend you start with Rapid for the first week or two. You can continue the Rapid phase for longer if you like, or you can skip straight to the Trim phase. It's really up to you. The Rapid Phase is completely safe for ongoing use.
To keep things interesting, some people like to switch back and forth between the Rapid and Trim phase every couple of weeks. It all comes down to personal preference. The Trim Phase was designed with longer term use in mind, so it does tend to be more flexible, provide more variety and generally easier to stick with over a longer period of time with a slightly higher daily intake than the Rapid Phase. One of the wonderful things about the Celebrity Slim Program is that correcting your abnormal body chemistry almost always removes the cravings for sweet and fatty foods.
One of Celebrity Slim's main goals is to normalise the way your body handles glucose, a type of blood sugar. Once this happens, the food cravings disappear by themselves. The Celebrity Slim Program guides you on how to select the correct foods as well as to gently change undesirable lifestyle habits.
Phase 1 of the program starts you on a rapid-burn phase. Early success will prove to you that you can achieve your body image goals. Celebrity Slim will gently help you to retrain the eating and lifestyle habits which caused your problem in the first place. Retraining your eating habits is not as difficult as it might seem when you take it a step at a time.
While you will need to be more active in order to maintain your new body shape, exercise need not include punishing sessions at the gym; walking regularly at a reasonable pace can be as effective in the long term. Just as importantly, you will need to consider incidental exercise; for example, take the stairs instead of the lift or park the car 10 minutes away from your destination so that you are becoming more active in your day-to-day activities.
Companies can't alter or remove reviews from ProductReview. I have tried all the flavours and so has my husband. They're easy and make us feel full. I blend the chocolate and vanilla with ml cold water, hand full of ice and a frozen banana and they thicken up like a thickshake. I've put raspberries and strawberries in the strawberry shake with the same effect. They do have a lot of sugar but calories is still calories. So unless you're a diabetic it wouldn't be a problem.
The whole basis of weight loss is calorie intake and exercise. I would recommend these for anyone who wants to lose weight. Write a review on ProductReview. Want an easy way to lose weight or save time? I was put on a very strict VLCD for my up coming gastric bypass surgery. I was told by the surgeon to have Optifast or Optislim. Due to Optifast making my face go all numb and my lips tingle I decided to give Aldi shakes a try.
I cant fault the taste or how thick the shakes are. The only down side is they are high in sugar. Verified Purchase Can't live without these!
The coffee is delicious! As a time poor Mum with a 1 and 4 year old , trying to get out the door having eaten breakfast was a struggle in itself. I decided to try these in January for a quick breakfast on the go and of course to lose a bit of weight. I have continued having one everyday for breakfast and it is now August and I have lost 9 kgs! I don't care for any of the other flavours but I am totally addiced to the coffee flavour. For the people complaining about the sugar content in my eyes it may have a bit of sugar in it but it comes down to convenience for me and losing some weight on it outweighs the high sugar content.
It has worked for me and fits in with my lifestyle so I highly recommend it. I have only tried vanilla but I might branch out and try coffee as well this time Best tasting meal replacement I have ever tasted. I have certainly tasted a few over my long life Now I have left qld and in Tassie with no ALDI so every time I hear of anyone going up there I get them to bring me back an arm full lol.
Sugar, sugar, more sugar! Great taste, especially the coffee - so much sugar though! I would love for a sugar free version of this as that much sugar just defeats the purpose of having a weight lose mix! Great shakes , great flavour , but sooooo much sugar. Please Aldi get us a low sugar shake.
