Pure Slim 1000 Review - Does This Weight-Loss Program Work? Are side effects and excessively low calories deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.5 / 5.0

pure-slim-1000-product-imageWe’re all searching for the right diet product. So we took a deeper look at Pure Slim 1000 ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer service. We decided to read through hundreds of user comments for realistic reports. Then, we took this information, refined and summarized to give you the facts you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Pure Slim 1000 with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need to Know

To start, Pure Slim 1000 is a weight-loss program that combines a homeopathic drop containing maca, glucomannan, arginine, rhodiola and African mango, among other ingredients, with a 1,000 calorie-a-day diet. Together, the two parts are supposed to help the dieter rapidly lose weight. You can eat the healthy foods anywhere, one plus.

The product website offers no information on the business behind the program. We found it for sale directly from the company and from outside retailers. We like the realistic-looking before and after photos, but read on…

Side Effects – “Doesn’t Feel Right?”

Our first issue pertains to Pureslim 1000 side effects. We found numerous people reporting similar gastrointestinal issues. “Much of the weight-loss journey has to do with the stomach. Hunger and eating less are just part of the process,” offers our Research Editor. “If a program causes the dieter issues in this department, they won’t stay with it for long.”

“I tried the pure slim for two weeks and noticed a tremendous bloating in my midsection, I honestly looked like I was 8 months pregnant,” one dieter reports.

“I have been on the diet for 13 days and have started feeling nauseated,” says another user.

Scroll below for one of the best products we’ve seen over the last year.

Excessive Calorie Restriction – “Too Low”

The average person eats about 2,000 calories per day. Pureslim 1000 asks the dieter to reduce that to 1,000. According to professionals, it can be harmful to eat fewer than 1,200.

Maryann Tomovich Jacobsen, MS, RD says, “Unless medically supervised, don’t cut calories below 1,200 per day. Otherwise, you will struggle to get enough nutrients to fuel your activities and satisfy your hunger.”

She goes on to explain that eating too little can cause the opposite of what you’re looking for. “Severely slashing calories may lead to weight loss, but the lost weight includes precious muscle and lowers metabolism.”

Our research shows it takes a single trouble, like too few calories, to shut down chances of long-term success. If Pureslim 1000 asks the dieter to extremely restrict intake, there’s a chance for hunger and rebound gain.

The Science – “Clinically Validated?”

Pureslim 1000 doesn’t bother to share clinical proof this diet works long-term, but we did find information on low calorie plans from Judith Beck, PhD. “If you lose weight on 1,200 calories a day, the minute you go up to 1,300 is the minute you start gaining weight.” This plan asks dieters to eat 1,000 per day. When hunger happens, and it will, you will put back on anything you lost. At DietSpotlight, we want science to support a product’s claims. In this case, our answer could actually rule against the supplement.

The Bottom Line – Does Pure Slim 1000 Work?

So, we finally found out what we needed to know about this one. Pureslim 1000 was intriguing, but it didn’t take long to come to a conclusion. We like that all the information you need is on the official website and you can buy it online, but we have reservations about a program that asks the dieter to cut back calories this much. We’re also concerned that we have no information on the company responsible for the plan.

If now is your time to lose more, we suggest going with a supplement that contains clinically proven ingredients that can be used as part of a healthy diet that does not extremely restrict calories.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula is packed with ingredients shown in published clinical studies to help spark metabolism and promote fat loss. We found no one talking about harmful side effects and dieters report seeing some amazing results.

Also, the company responsible for Leptigen is confident in the supplement so they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, not your everyday bonus.

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Pure Slim 1000 is a diet and weight loss product rolled into one. The diet shows you how to eat to make the weight loss drops a more effective solution to weight loss. They resemble something like the HCG drops seen in many weight loss programs like Omnutrition Drops, but we cannot confirm that is what these are. Read this review to learn more about the program and it works to help you decide if you want to use this to help you reach your weight loss goals.

List of Ingredients

Though there are drops associated with this diet, we are not sure what these drops contain.

Product Features

Pure Slim 1000 is a three phase weight loss program. Prior to beginning the first phase, though, you are to spend two weeks in preparation for starting the program. This is when you load yourself with healthy fats from foods such as nuts, avocados, and olive oil. Supplement with Omega 3s, and replace all beverages with water. Roca Labs offers a similar plan with identical preparations. Then, you begin phase 1: Rapid Weight Loss Phase. This phase can last up to 90 days. This phase is 1000 calories a day with the use of the drops, and can produce half pound to 1 pound of loss per day. Phase 2: Creating a New Weight Set Point lasts three weeks and requires you to add 500 calories back to your diet. You may continue to lose weight, as long as you are using the drops, and eating your full caloric intake (no skipping meals!). Phase 3: Maintenance. This is intended to be the life long phase.

There are several different packages available, each with a varying quantity of drops to help you, based on how much weight you have to lose total. You can expect to spend anywhere from $89.95 to $159.95 depending on the weight you have to lose. The largest package is recommended for those who have 40+ pounds to reach their ideal weight or whatever their goal weight may be. At the time of this review in March 2012, there is a discount code “SPRINGBREAK” to get 20% off your order, but we are not sure how long this promotion lasts.

  • Pure Slim 1000 doesn’t really have any advantages we can see.


  • Pure Slim 1000 requires a drastic cut in caloric intake, that will make the diet hard to follow.

  • This is an expensive diet to follow.
  • There are no free trials of this program.
  • We are not sure if there is a money back guarantee to support this program.


Pure Slim 1000 is likely another HCG based diet that only produces results because of the low calorie intake. Not to be confused with HCA products like Pure Life Garcinia Cambogia. We advise to you stay away from this product unless you can really determine what is in the drops.

    What if I followed this plan without taking the drops? Can current users tell me if taking the “drops” truly make a difference in this plan?


    Candace (Editor)

    Hi Marissa, some dieters say you’re bound to lose weight with or without the drops because of the extremely low daily caloric intake allowance. It’s claimed to work best with the drops. Use this forum as your resource.

    I lost 25 Lbs in 8 weeks, follow the diet exactly and was never hungry. Did not have side effects of any kind, actually I felt it gave me energy. Support is great also. I went overseas on assignment and stopped the diet……now time to go back to it. I like the program very much.

    Melinda Rector

    I lost 22lbs in 9 weeks and i felt great and very motivated. I tend to eat when I’m stressed and it helped so much with that. It cut out my cravings and the drops did not taste bad. Looking forward to the next round.

    The comments in regards to the company charging money are untrue. I read the same review and was concerned so I contacted the company and after they explained that there is another company named Pureslim not Pureslim1000 that is located in the U.K. not the U.S. and has “free” trials and later goes and charges their accounts.
    I have lost 57 pounds so far and love how supportive Pureslim1000 community is. If you want the real deal, this is it.

    I want to try this,how do I do it



    Hi…The order comes with two bottles. I have one unopened and half left on the opened. I have not had the results as expected. If you would like the second unopened bottle. Please email me. It would be for a fraction of the cost of course as this diet is pricey.

    Pure Slim 1000 is a great life style change that works. I struggled to find a program that helped me make food choices that I could stay with forever and not feel like I was missing out. I love the changes I have made and I am now healthy! I have lost weight by burning fat and building muscle. This program works!

    Is there anything in these ” Drops” that cause my Gout to flare up?. Does uraci form when using this product?


    Cameron (Editor)

    Qutha, We haven’t encountered users experiencing these effects. It would be in your best interest visit s doctor before taking the product.

    i have been using Pureslim 1000 since March and I have lost 40lb. I did not think I would be able to stick to 1000 calories a day, I used to eat 1000 calories for a snack. the drops help with appetite and cravings. I have had no side effects and I showed the list of drops to my doctor and nothing rang a warning bell to her. i love this diet and say to anyone, give it a try you have nothing but pounds to lose!!

    I have been on pure slim for just under 2 weeks and have lost over 10 lbs. This program is more than just a diet I have learned so much about nutrition and what your body needs.I feel wonderful on this program and I don’t feel the least bit deprived.

    Braquel Dix

    Pure Slim 1000 has truly helped me! I am 18 years old and about 100 pounds overweight. After two days I was down seven pounds and was down 13 after two weeks!! This product is amazing, I am feeling better and have more energy. It’s only been one month, but I am positive Pure Slim will change my life!
    I 100% recommend this product to anyone who has tried in the past to lose weight and it just hasn’t worked. Pure Slim can help you as it has helped me.



    I had a question: I am 18 and going to be 19 in august by that time I would like to wear a two piece bathing suit. I have never worn one before. I am currently 240 pounds do you think if I start it now that I will be 80 pound lighter?

    Amanda Gastelum

    I have been on pureslim1000 for 7 weeks now, I’ve lost 23 lbs so far. There have been ups and downs but the fact is it works. It’s a lifestyle change which is awesome because that’s really what most people need to lose and then to keep it off. I’m very excited about my results, and the Facebook support page is amazing, so helpful!! :-)

    Debra Glenn

    My husband and I are both on the diet! After one month he is down 22 pounds with 41 more to go and I am down 13 pounds with 12 more to go! Love it. We get to eat a variety of food and plenty of it! Both of us are in our fifties and never thought we would have such an easy time losing weight. Thank you Pure Slim 1000!

    Yvette D.

    Over the past 22 years, I have tried a variety of other products and diets but on Pure Slim, I feel better and have more energy than I did on anything else I’ve tried. I’ve been using this product for six weeks and in addition to the 15 pounds I’ve lost so far, I’m sleeping better and I have more energy. The plan is so simple and a bonus is that I get to eat real food, not pre-packaged bars and meals. I can buy everything I need at the grocery store, which makes shopping each week easy. On this plan, I’m eating fresh and healthy food five times a day so I’m never hungry and I don’t get the shakes like I did from some other diet supplements I recently tried.

    I have an allergy to shellfish will I still be able to use pure slim 1000


    Sue Lucas

    I am also allergic to shellfish, but had no troublesome reactions to the PureSlim 1000. I am not one who is willing to severely restrict my diet; I knew I wouldn’t even try to stick to 1000 calories a day, so I just ate a balanced diet (mostly vegetarian for about 3 months). I only exercised moderately, but I had dramatic weight loss after taking the product for 2 months. I’ll probably repeat the 2-month use again, just to get back to more seriously losing weight again. I am sure every person’s body reacts differently, and I do give a lot of credit to eating mostly vegan during that time, but I lost 50 pounds in only 5 or 6 months. Hope this answers your question. :-)



    Yes! I don’t care for any seafood, and I have been doing great!

    J. G.

    Been taking PureSlim 1000 for a week now, I do not have the discipline to follow the diet exactly but probably following it 80%, I am dong the water 100% and I’ve lost 8 pounds in the past 7 days. I also do an hour and a half at the gym each weekday, 15 min on the machines, 15 min walking and an hour of Zumba. The directions say to add 250 calories on any day you exercise over 30 minutes so that REALLY helps. Its a hard diet to follow so I know I won’t be on it for life, but I only need to loose 30 pounds now. Had already lost 90, but stalled on my weightloss for the past year, this will help me finish it off.

    Does the pure slim 1000 contain caffeine? I am looking to start the program, but I can not have caffeine. please let me know :)

    Thank you


    Yvette D.

    Nope, no caffeine in Pure Slim and I’ve never had the shakes on the product either. I’ve been on it for six weeks and I’ve felt great.

    I ordered the Pure Slim 1000 product and read the book last fall. I was impressed with the all natural ingredients and followed the program for less than 2 weeks and lost about 8 pounds. It works very quickly if you follow the plan…I just have trouble allowing holidays, etc to interfere with my plans. You do have to restrict your calorie intake too. I do believe it is a great product.



    PureSlim1000 is a program I have been on now for about 10 days. I have dropped 10 pounds. I have not had to starve myself, just have to pay attention to my hydration, food choices and portions. Exercise is encouraged, but to do it gradually and a routine you can live with! I bike for about 15 min, alternating between a min or two of normal pace and then gunning it for about 3 sec, and back and so forth. The ingredience are thoroughly explained in the book and printed on the label. There is nothing in it that is dangerous that I can see. (I’m a nurse myself.) I hope that this will be the last program I ever have to be on. Am very pleased with it. Customer service has been exceptional.



    Hi Cynthia,
    Hmmm interesting information. I am also planning to start on PureSlim 1000 but have only one question, Is there any known side effects with this product? Looking forward to your comments and opinion.




    I have been on the diet for 13 days and have started feeling nauseated. I am s


  • 29

    Very valid point raised by Lisa… Its like consumer report saying a car is not drivable becuase they dont have the stats/data.

    Lisa – how did the Pure Slim 1000 work out? Would be great if you can share.


  • 30
    Lisa E

    I wouldn’t take your editor’s choice simply because it contains caffeine. Not everybody can take this ingredient. As for PureSlim1000, I just started it. I, however, didn’t start until I had my Naturopath Doctor review the ingredients and she said they were all great ingredients. All natural. I have a question. How can you legitimately review a product if you don’t take the time to research the ingredients?



    I agree!


    No More Diets

    I agree Lisa E. This really wasn’t a thorough review of this product. Every other diet review site that I found was able to find the ingredients. Plus, they are clearly and boldly listed on the Pure Slim 1000 website itself. I have noticed that the same products are always listed at the top of this websites “best products” list yet on other sites, these same products are not always in the top.



    All natural. Are They organic?



    WARNING TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Very excited for the things to come. My wife and I both started the Pure Slim 1000 lifestyle change on March 2nd, 2015. After less than a week in, both of us are down over 11 lbs. I was not expecting such a dramatic result in a short amount of time, and am not naïve enough to believe this will be typical every week, but we are both very happy with the results to say the least. Now I am not what you would call an “adventurous” eater. I have always been a meat and potatoes type of guy and was a little worried about the food choices I would be making. Not only has it been easy, but enjoyable and quite tasty. I know 1000 calories a day does not seem like much, but I don’t think I’ve ever eaten more in my life. It is more of a challenge for me to get all of my calories in than not. We are not hungry and feel better every day. I know we have a ways to go yet, but please, if you are considering a diet give PS1000 serious consideration…I believe it will help you lose weight, but more importantly change your life.
