Watchdog Approved Diet Pills

Slim n Fast

SHARE & COMMENT
There are so many diet pills available on the market that many of the names can begin to all sounds the same, or at least similar. There are some however, that clearly take inspiration from much more famous diet products, perhaps to increase the chances of potential customers seeing (and choosing) their product. SlimNFast is most certainly one of these companies, taking name ‘inspiration’ from Slim Fast, the famous meal replacement shakes.

Slim n Fast Pros

  • Contains green tea and caffeine

Slim n Fast Cons

  • No ingredient quantities
  • Hard to find ingredients profile
  • Possibly faked reviews
  • No money-back guarantee

Slim n Fast Facts

  • Manufactured by E & E Nutrition Corp
  • 60 capsules per bottle- 1 month supply
  • Company based in Florida

SlimNFast is a diet pill that claims to suppress the appetite, boost the metabolism and increase energy levels. It is manufactured by E & E Nutrition Corp, a company that has been operating since 2011, from Boca Raton, Florida. Despite their claims that they are ‘a Nutrition Company with vast experience in producing healthy and effective supplements for those on a quest to shed off that extra pound’, SlimNFast appears to be their only product.

Customers who wish to contact E & E Nutrition Corp can check out the full list of contact details on their site. There is also a generic contact box form for customers to submit their questions.

How to Take SlimNFast

The daily recommended dose is one capsule, 30 minutes before breakfast and another capsule 30 minutes before dinner. This diet pill does contain caffeine, and so people who are sensitive to caffeine may develop insomnia if they are taking a pill in the early evening.

The terms and conditions of the website specifically state:

The said food supplements have neither been scientifically tested not proven to actually deliver their purported or declared results.

SlimNFast offer a 30 days ‘free’ trial program, which is referred to in the terms and conditions, but seems to be absent from the website. The product is sent to the customer for merely a delivery charge, but the product is then charged for at the end of the 30 day period. Customers must send back their remaining product before the end of 30 days, after filling out a cancellation form, if they wish to avoid this charge.

There is also a FREE VIP membership policy, which is just fancy phrasing for an auto-ship program that begins at the end of the 30 days free trial, until it is cancelled. The website claims ‘No commitments, no hassles. Cancel anytime!’

Slim n Fast Concerns:

  • Faked reviews
  • Unhappy customers
  • Very little clinical backing

What Does Slim n Fast Claim To Do?

SlimNFast is a completely safe nutritional supplement that will help you lose weight faster, and unlike other dietary pills, our conditions dictate that you still maintain a healthy diet and include moderate exercise in your daily routine.

SlimNFast claims to negate the need to go on any special diet to lose weight. It works supposedly by speeding up the process of thermogenesis, ‘thus accelerating the burning of fat and calories in the body’, as well as getting rid of excess retained fluids in the body, enhancing energy levels, improving mental alertness, and suppressing the appetite. They also claim that results are visible within one week of using the diet pill.

So What Is Slim n Fast and What Are The Ingredients For Slim n Fast?

The amazon sales page features a picture of the label, which includes an ingredients list. However, the picture provided is at such a low resolution that it is impossible to read the ingredients list. Luckily, the picture on the official website is slightly clearer, allowing us to see the ingredients list. There is 603 mg of the proprietary formula in each capsule.

The official website states that the primary ingredients are Acai Berry and Green Tea.

  • Acai Berry: A berry that has been wrongly hyped up as a weight-loss super-food, Acai berry use in diet pills has rocketed in recent years. Acai berry is high in Anthocyanins, antioxidants which may help to protect the body against cancer, inflammation, aging, neurological diseases, diabetes, and bacterial infections. However, any claims that it aids weight loss are unproven.

  • Green Tea: Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism temporarily. However, the metabolic increase caused by green tea is limited. One study found that the use of green tea was not enough to counteract weight gain following a very low calorie diet.

Other listed ingredients include Garcinia Cambogia, Caffeine, Kelp, Grapefruit seed and apple cider vinegar.

  • Garcinia Cambogia: Garcinia Cambogia: A small fruit, also known as the Malabar Tamarind. Test tube and animal research suggests that HCA, the active compound in Garcinia Cambogia, may be helpful in weight loss because of its effects on metabolism. However, studies in humans have found mixed results. Some studies have found it has no effect upon either appetite or metabolic rate, whilst others showed increased weight loss compared to the use of a placebo.

  • Caffeine: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.

  • Kelp: A good source of iodine, which is required by the thyroid for effective function. Iodine deficiency is incredibly rare in the developed world, and there is little evidence that increased amounts of iodine supplementation have any correlation with increased weight loss.

  • Grapefruit Seed: Whilst some very limited studies have linked eating grapefruit with increased fat burning. However, there is little evidence to support the use of grapefruit seed in particular. Regardless, it is used to treat various infections, a breath freshener, mild skin irritations, in skin cream, and for weight loss.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar: One Japanese study has suggested that consumption of apple cider vinegar daily may lead to a very small amount of weight loss, compared to consuming water. However, over the three month study, those who took the apple cider vinegar only lost 1-2 pounds more than their water drinking counterparts.

So What Does All This Mean?

It concerns us that one of the main ingredients in SlimNFast is Acai berry. Considering that acai berry has no clinically proven link to weight loss at all, saying that it is one of the primary active ingredients in a diet pill suggests that the product will not cause significant weight loss. Green tea and caffeine are both proven to increase the metabolic rate and to increase fat oxidation, but there are no other ingredients in this diet pill that have strong clinical evidence to support them. All clinical evidence to support the ingredients in this diet pill is either preliminary, or suggests only a mild effect upon weight loss.

Does Slim n Fast Have Any Side Effects?

The official website for SlimNFast states that there are no side effects from using SlimNFast.

However, every ingredient and every diet pill does carry the risk of some side effects- the important considerations are how likely the side effects are, and the severity of the side effects.

One customer reported feeling tired and weak whilst using SlimNFast. Caffeine causes a wide variety of side effects, including headaches, increased urination, dehydration, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, fainting and insomnia. Grapefruit has been known to interact with the absorption of medications, and so should not be used by those on prescription medications.

Caution:

Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Anyone with high blood pressure, on blood pressure medications, or who suffers from any other cardiac related illnesses should avoid the use of this product.

Those taking prescription medications should avoid the use of SlimNFast.

Any Slim n Fast Reviews From Customers?

There is a customer testimonials page on the official website. Naturally all of these reviews are positive.

All I can say is that these pills did for me what no others could. Talk about my weight going down in such a short time. Also inches have melted away, and I have no jitters and a great sense of calm, but lots of energy as well. A very satisfied customer to say the least. Will be buying more soon!

Burned my fat fast. Increased my energy level and makes me more attractive to the opposite sex. I just did not want to eat, when I took those diet pills. It works!

Without a doubt these have got to be the best pills on the market right now. I’m witnessing a steady drop almost every week, without even getting into a plateau.

There is also a number of reviews for the product on Amazon sales pages. These reviews should offer a more representative set of customer opinions of SlimNFast, however, some customers claim that the positive reviews are faked. Here reviews are mostly 5 star, with a small selection being 1 star reviews.

I didn’t buy this product in Amazon, I bought it from eBay because of the shipping and I also found it cheaper. I did, however, use this website to look through reviews in order to decide which weight-loss supplement to use. It really bothers me that a company would go to great lengths to get costumers including fake online reviews and testimonials. I’ve been taking this product for almost a month along with dieting and exercise and it has done nothing to help my weight-loss. I checked the reviewers who gave the product five stars (something i should have done before) and they have also written reviews for some of the same products. Including other dietary supplements that I know for a fact aren’t very effective. Save your money and your trouble and don’t buy this. Also, save your time on writing fake reviews. This really doesn’t mean you’ll have more of a clientele. If you show some integrity and sell a good product, you’d have more customers.

I was about to buy this product based on all the 5 star reviews then I started looking into the reviewers. They have all reviewed the same perfumes and other weight loss pills. Sorry Guys, you just lost all your credibility!

Everybody is different but these pills were making me very tired and weak. I tried to return it but they don’t take returns once it is open. With that policy, they can put anything on the market and still make money because, once you buy it, you’re forced to keep it. It looks like the reviews are great but it didn’t work for me, and with something this good, it should have a money back guarantee. Just read the return policy before ordering. Good luck.

So Does Slim n Fast Work?

It seems that many of the positive customer reviews are faked, leaving negative reviewers angry about this underhand practice to boost sales. There are very few reviews that we can confirm to be authentic, and these are not happy about the product’s lack of effectiveness.

The clinical trials associated with the ingredients profile also suggest that SlimNFast will not lead to significant weight loss, with many of the ingredients being ineffective or only leading to very minimal weight loss. It is also impossible to tell how effective any of the ingredients will be, as there are no available figures for how much of each ingredient is present.

Where Can I Buy Slim n Fast?

There are several different offers available for SlimNFast, depending upon where the customer is going to purchase the product from. The official website offers a choice of 1 bottle, 6 bottles, or a buy 2 get 1 free offer.

One bottle, containing a 30 day supply of 60 capsules, costs $39.95, whilst 6 bottles costs $159.95. Finally, there is a Buy 2 get 1 free offer, providing three months of product for $79.95. There is free shipping offered on all products from slimnfast.

Amazon offer either a single bottle of SlimNFast for $39.95, or a 3 pack at $85.95. Whilst this still offers savings in the long run, it still more expensive than the buy 2 get 1 free offer that the official website is running.

What About A Guarantee

There is no money back guarantee on this product. Returns are not accepted if the product has been opened, leaving some customers unhappy with the customer service.

Watchdog Verdict

Overall, it seems that SlimNFast is an ineffective diet pill that relies upon its name being similar to Slim Fast, its exaggerated claims about its potency, and fake reviews to get sales. There is not enough clinical evidence to suggest that use of the product would lead to significant weight loss, and this is likely to leave many consumers disappointed.

The official website makes it difficult to locate a full ingredients list, only mentioning Acai Berry and Green tea as a small part of their sales pitch. To us, the ingredients are the most important part of a diet pill, as these are what make it work (or not)- to not mention what the ingredients are, or to provide an easy to locate ingredients list, suggests that the ingredients are not the strongest part of their sales pitch.

We are automatically wary of any website that offers “free” trials that charge for the product at a later date, or that have an auto-ship program; SlimNFast offers both.

We also find it worrying that the manufacturers state that consumers of SlimNFast would not need to follow a special diet whilst using the product. Even the strongest diet pills work best when used in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet and exercise program. This is because diet pills merely increase the amount of calories burnt by the body, and may decrease the appetite. If a consumer is still eating too much, even the effects of the diet pill may not be able to counteract this.

There is not enough evidence to suggest that SlimNFast is a diet pill that would cause significant weight loss, and even if there was, there are too many problems with the company’s marketing techniques to recommend the product anyway.

We reject Slim n Fast diet pills.
