Products that are low in glycemic index allow the body to take more time burning off the energy that comes from carbohydrate consumption. Therefore, it will not burn off as quickly (as with high glycemic foods), forcing the body to store the glycemia as fat.
GlycoSlim may be mixed with water or skim milk. When it is mixed with milk, the glycemic index is 36. When mixed with water, it is 33. It claims to have no artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, colors, or proteins that come from genetically modified organisms, or GMO’s. One scoop contains 140 calories. Forty-five of these are from fat. Consumers of GlycoSlim shakes are recommended to drink one or two shakes a day as meal replacements.
This product may be used be people who are or are not seeking to lose weight. People seeking to lose weight should drink this shake and combine it with a low or reduced carbohydrate diet (e.g., South Beach Diet). Three days a week of regular exercise is needed to achieve optimal weight loss. For those not seeking to lose weight, GlycoSlim is a safe, between-meal snack that will provide nutrients to the body and not produce a rise in blood sugar. Increase in blood sugar leads to cravings and can interfere with the metabolism of a low or reduced-carb diet.

GlycoSlim produces two flavors of meal replacement shakes that are all-natural and low in glycemic index. This means that the body will take more time breaking down the carbohydrate so that it can produce energy for sustained amounts of activity. If a carbohydrate is high in glycemic index, then it will break it down quicker and store it as fat.
GlycoSlim shakes are not available through many online retailers. They must be combined with other diets or supplements for optimal weight loss.
