Slim 4 Life is a weight reduction program suited for men and women alike. This diet system aims to assist users by teaching them “weight management and healthy eating habits.” Slim 4 Life offers 30-minute consultations to new customers for free by telephone. Their main office locations are Denver Metro, Northern Colorado and Minneapolis/St. Paul. There are customer testimonials offered on the official website. No company background/history is found on the website, but it is stated that the Slim 4 Life system has been around for 25 years.

Unlike many other weight loss supplements and diet programs available, Slim 4 Life is essentially a system that focuses on changing eating habits for a lifetime. With proper education, counseling and supervision, dieters are supposedly able to achieve the weight loss they desire. No diet pills or synthetic supplements are incorporated into the Slim 4 Life program. Some of the foods encouraged with Slim 4 Life are vegetables, meats, dairy products, fruits, starches, eggs and fats. While some specific foods are restricted initially, they’re eventually added back into your eating routine. It is not stated whether or not there is a 100% money-back/satisfaction guarantee offered with Slim 4 Life. The average dieter is stated to lose 3.3 pounds per week. A regular exercise regimen is not part of Slim 4 Life.

Product Features

Slim 4 Life is basically a weight loss program that’s geared toward men and women suffering from obesity. As opposed to incorporating diet pills and weight loss supplements, Slim 4 Life focuses on altering the individual’s way of eating permanently. Therefore the teaching of healthy eating habits, counseling, proper education and supervision are all part of the Slim 4 Life program. It is not stated on the official website how much Slim 4 Life costs. A free consultation is available via the website and a phone number is provided for new users to take Slim 4 Life up on this offer.

Advantages

  • Slim 4 Life encourages “healthy” eating habits.
  • Free nutrition consultation available over the phone for first-time users.
  • Slim 4 Life is a weight reduction system offered to both women and men.

Disadvantages

  • There are no appetite suppressants offered with the Slim 4 Life diet program.
  • There is no stated price for the Slim 4 Life program on the official website.
  • There doesn’t appear to be any substantial company background information offered on the website.
  • The Slim 4 Life weight loss program would require a somewhat drastic lifestyle change, which may not be suitable for some individuals. (See reader comments.)
  • There doesn’t appear to be any 100% money-back/satisfaction guarantee offered on the Slim 4 Life website.
  • Slim 4 Life only appears to have branches in only three areas, which are Denver Metro, Northern Colorado and Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Conclusion

On the bright side, the Slim 4 Life weight reduction program is unique in the sense that it doesn’t require users to remember to take pills. While this dieting system does encourage a specific way of eating/way of living, a few crucial aspects were left off of the official website. For example, often those looking to lose weight need extra help in the form of a appetite suppressant or a metabolic booster. It would certainly be nice to see some pricing for the Slim 4 Life program posted on the website, along with a 100% money-back/satisfaction guarantee and some real background information on the company itself.

    Started this diet again, but found out after I signed and paid that you know longer carry the chocolate mini crisp. That was the one food I carried with me that got me over the humps. I really need something in the mornings that taste good and don’t make you feel sick. The oat meal taste like….. Please bring back the mini crisp. I would buy them by the case!!!!! Would of never started this diet if I had known. I transport for a hospital 24/7 and need mini crisp packs to take with me……PLEASE RETHINK!

    The diet plan does encourage eating healthy foods but it PUSHES unhealthy and overpriced supplements, If you are sensitive to Sucralose (ie feel bloated or gassy) be warned, as their products are filled with then. Caffeine is abundant too and can cause sleep problems and palpitations. Each visit pushes you to buy more and more. Their supplements do not list side effects. I was told they are safe because they are natural. Natural or plant based does not mean it is good for you. Buyer beware.

    I going to call them to see if they still have canola oil, splenda, unfermented soy or agave in their products as they use to use them and anyone who knows anything about health knows not to put any of that in ones body. I would try it if they have removed that in their products.

    Also years ago I checked them out and they had a special of a $99 for everything offer–but by time they finished talking to me it went up to $999 and when I turned that down they had another offer for $399. Don’t remember what happened to the $99 offer. Right now they are advertising a $199 offer and that is suppose to be for everything one needs–probably for a month–not sure about how long this will be for.

    I didn’t like the way the program was presented. They charged my card for $299 making me think that it was going to cover the 6 week program. Then I am charged $130 for drinks and bars to cover the 6 weeks after I am told that I can buy all my foods at the grocery store. Then after the 3 day cleanse I went to the class and found out it was going to cost me another $361 for the metabolizer, vitamins and slim 700. This is a total of $790 for 6 weeks to loose 15 lbs. besides the EXACT grocery list you have to go by to supposedly loose 3 to 6 lbs. in a week. I agree with Alice that it is presented in a underhanded and deceitful way. Had I known before they charged ANY amount on my card what it was actually going to cost me totally, I would have never signed up. You don’t see the list of groceries until the class. To upgrade it costs another $330. I have been on a lot of diets in my life and never one so strict. Some Examples, It has to be GREEN grapes, ROMA tomatoes, GREEN onions and only WHITE ground chicken or turkey. It is a very constipating diet and hugely expensive. I can loose as little as I lost on my own without the cost, the constipation and the stress. I do not recommend any one try this diet.

    Too late, I just read all the reviews! I signed up for Sim4life several weeks ago and have had a great weight loss, but, who wouldn’t eating such a restricted diet? I had hesitated starting the program because they require so many supplements which I loathe taking. I knew it was expensive, but decided to go ahead and spend the money because I hadn’t been disciplined enough to lose the weight on my own. (I needed to lose 20 lbs which doesn’t sound monumental. It IS huge because about 6 years ago I lost 50 lbs. on my own and was slowly gaining it back. I wanted to lose it before I needed to lose the 50 again!)
    As some others have mentioned, the whole program design is deceptive. There really isn’t such a thing as a per week price or “special”. The supplements are crazy expensive, and I hate taking pills. I’m still at the start and am required to take 14 capsules per day, two “snacks”, a fiber drink, and now, a cleansing tea.
    I’ve had an upset stomach for about half of the two weeks. I was a healthy eater to begin with, so I attribute the distress to the supplements.
    Being uncomfortable aside, the very worst think about Slim4life is the staff. I wonder if some of them are human! They are insensitive, rude, and all the other things people have said in their reviews.
    If you really want to lose weight, be your own “consultant”.
    1. Eat small meals often.
    2. Follow a balanced meal plan with protein, healthy carbs, and a small amount of fat.
    3. Drink lots and lots of water (this is the best habit I got from the program).
    4. Eat every three hours. Stop eating early in the evening.
    5. Cut out as many artificial sweeteners as possible.
    6. Exercise, at least by walking, 30 minutes a day.
    7. Keep a food log. If you know you have to write it down, you might not eat it!
    8. Use less fats and oils to prepared foods.
    I’m sure there are other great tools to use to lose weight. As many mentioned, finding someone to hold you accountable (nicely) is another help.

    My husband and I signed up with Slim 4 Life in Lake Worth, TX. I paid 300.00 for the 6 week portion of the program. Start weight 195 and five and half weeks later I’m at 173. I enjoyed the nutrition class and the food is regular everyday food. Yes some foods are off limits however should I choose to sign up for the year I will be coached as to when to bring them back in. I am glad I did the program for the education and weight loss. No regrets. I will make a go of it on my own at the end of 6 weeks. I was encouraged to purchase their drinks, bars and snacks. However I have recently experienced an allergic reaction to some of their products and my doctor as much as he encouraged me to continue with the program feels I should discontinue the products. However continue the eating right. Thank you Slim 4 Life this is a great program just costly. I spent approx. 2-400.00 every 2 weeks on products. My husband yes he started at 265 and is now at 214 he has chosen to sign up for the year and is doing great he is going to try and cut back on the supplements, vitamins and other products also. He states he believes it is a great program however very costly.

    I am having very mixed feelings about Slim4Life. I can see that if you stick very carefully to the plan, it will work. However, I feel that I was “duped” into signing a contract and then finding out the true cost of the plan. I am a very compliant person (somewhat naive) so I am going to follow the plan and use the products I have already purchased (plan & products about $1,000). I know that if I don’t purchase the other $1,500 in products, they won’t “guarantee” my weight loss, but I am going to try to loose as much as I can and then try to maintain on my own…..

    Went today after hearing the $30 for 30 days offer……so glad I had a job when I was much younger selling
    timeshare vacations and could see the whole pressure to join “TODAY, and TODAY only” to get that discount. What a rip. They would not answer my questions about the monthly cost for the supplements. The consultant I had was not even in good shape, yet she told me how great it was. I followed my gut and left. Now that I have read these reviews, I know I did the right thing. I had to laugh at her very unprofessional input. After my weigh in she said ” I would never have guessed that” then tells me ” you are pretty we just need to get some of that weigh off” Thank God for giving me a brain and for not jumping into something that would have cost me a bundle.

    This company is nothing but a scam. They do NOT care about their consumers but rather how much money they can make off you. I spent $1700 in a week on all their products that was “needed” because I was getting a discount. In a matter of 5 days I started getting sick to the point of vomiting blood and of course they tell you there are no refunds, they will just
    ‘put me on a program where I don’t have to take supplements’. Um……..so what I am I supposed to do with all this crap that I bought.
    Word to the wise….do not fall for their crap.

    I am on just the food part of Slim4Life with my wife(she is doing the pills and what not) and it has been one week and I have lost 14 1/2 pounds. It works if you stick to it. Slim4Life shows you how to eat and keeps you accountable with all the weigh-ins. It’s worth the money if you want to live to see 65 or 70

    I joined slim4life and I am so disappointed! Never have I seen such a ripoff! It is extremely expensive! They sign you up thinking you will have to spend a little more for supplements. But reality is you pay 3X more for the supplements then you do for the plan itself! I bought a 6week plan and then after I did the prep phase I went to a class that then they wanted me to spend another 600.00!!! Shock!!! When I didn’t buy those items I decided to buy min. But was told I wouldn’t be guaranteed to lose my goal with out the min. But I didn’t have more to spend on all that! I was treated different! Then in one of my weigh ins I was told not to work out! Cuz it would not show as much on the scale because I would gain muscle and it weighs more! I never heard of any weight loss program that would tell you that!!! And then they want you to go there every day! Well getting on a scale very day can not be good for anyone! This review says there are not any supplements or food to buy. That is very false! You are told you must use All of their supplements or you will not lose! They are very expensive!! 16.00-22.00 then Metabolize boost pills that are 150.00 more per mo!! So ridiculous! And you sign a contract that you can’t get a refund! Now that should have been my first clue!!

    I had VERY bad acid reflux my whole life. It had gotten so bad I was contemplating surgery. A friend that too had bad acid reflux was on the program and said he didn’t have it any more. I didn’t “want” to lose weight, but thought..hey, if it will fix my acid reflux, what’s the loss? $499?. I wasn’t pressured to use the products, I didn’t use ALL the protein bars they tell you to eat or drinks or the amount of boost that they tell you it’s recommended. My husband only ate the food and wasn’t on the program. I stuck to the food completely…and so did he…I lost 70lbs in 6 months and he lost almost 80lbs in the same time. It’s been two years eating the food and using the carb blockers and release pills occasionally and I am actually below my goal weight. NO ACID REFLUX either!!! That was the best part of it. HOWEVER…if you go into the program with the “I don’t like to eat fruit, or veg, or simple meats”…then you will fail. This program teaches HOW to eat and WHAT to eat…it’s up to you to follow it.

    Did not like the way the program was presented, as they took my credit card for the initial sign up without explaining the total costs involved. The next sheet the girl pulls out has numbers in the thousands of dollars! To say that I felt duped and tricked is a joke. I found this to be very underhanded and deceitful. Once they’ve charged you the first time you feel obligated of course and they make sure you’ve signed all of the contracts. I do not respect the way Slim 4 Life did business with me.

    I too invested a large sum of money into this plan. My short coming was not to ask enough questions. I did loos 7 pounds in the three day cleansing stage. Iam now on the diet which includes all the pills. The pills make me feel like I could fly and sick to my stomach. I will faithfully follow the food plan but cannot stomach the pills. They make my heart race and keep me awake at night.

    Buyer Beware!!!!!! After a great sales pitch, I donated $499. To the cause, this price included, a carb blocker, multivitamin, fish oil, a metabolism enhancer, energy drink powder and some protein bars. So I rationalized the cost. I did the three day prep and lost 8 pounds then returned to their office to begin the system of “counseling”. I was then quoted a price of $1200. Plus to continue with other random pills, drinks, powders,etc.,,,,,, what a scam! On my initial visit I specifically asked the salesperson if the $499. I was paying was all I would need to pay, and was told YES. Keep in mind they do not guarantee your weight loss if you don’t buy all their products.

    I see a lot of complainers on here. I am sorry it did not work for you all but for me….I lost 135 pounds. I loved it. It was the most easiest diet I have ever done. And I have tried a lot of diets. Loved the counselors, loved the plans and I was rarely if ever hungry. I weigh no 130 pounds. WooHoo! And yes I have kept it off. They taught me how to maintain and the danger signs to look for. Loved it!

    I heard about the Slim4Life program on my Christian radio station promoting how wonderful this plan is. I wanted to lose 35lbs. and kept failing on my own. I joined because I take a few meds and wanted to get off of my High Blood Pressure medication if possible. I bought half of the Supplements that I would need at 30% off. I am 60 yrs old and I asked if this program is safe for me because I take a lot of meds. I was assured it was because everything is natural. The staff at the Office I went to were all very nice and supportive. I started on Plan 2 which are 2 proteins, 2 starches, 2 fruits and 4 vegetables a day plus a 4oz glass of Skim milk and 2 slim snacks. My first problem was receiving different directions everytime I went in and seen a different Consultant. It would be a lot more helpful if you were able to see the same person by appt. instead of walking in and seeing whoever is available. My second problem is that my body doesn’t want to lose weight everyday which is what they expect of you. After losing 6lbs in two weeks I went on a plateau and was told to go on Plan 1 so I would start to lose weight again. I asked why and I was told that I was close to my goal weight. I didn’t think 29lbs from goal is close. Plan 1 takes away 2 vegetables and the milk. I started losing but still at a slow rate. I am unable to take the Release Supplement for water retention because it reacts to my High Blood Pressure meds. After losing another 6lbs. I went on another plateau and was told to drink 1 to 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar in a glass of water to replace ‘Release’ and I would lose 1 to 2 lbs. overnight. I put 2 tablespoons of vinegar in a 16oz glass of water and drank it. The next morning I didn’t lose any more weight and I had blood in my urine. I went to Slim4Life and told them that I was stopping the program. I went back on the South Beach Diet Phase2 and am losing weight at my own pace. If you take meds. please talk to your Dr. before joining.

    Um This company sound exactly like LA Weight Loss. They were a rip of as well. Their “counselors” were also just Joes off the street and they packed a real attitude towards customers that weren’t interested in buying more products. I’m bummed that Slim4Life is receiving the same type of reviews. I did well on the LAWL program, I just couldn’t handle the bad customer service. I thought that I could do well on basically the same plan with Slim4Life and had hopes to avoid the negativity!

    I agree Slim 4 Life sounds exactly like LA Weight Loss who closed there doors on everyone, taking everyones money and not providing the products in which they purchase. Yes it worked and yes they said a diet without exercise. I lost 26 lbs leveled off and couldn’t lose anymore. Without the proper amount of nutrition and exercise in the right combination the weight will return. Just because one is thin does not mean good health. One must still get in a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity in which the heart rate is in the cardio target zone along with nutrition. I cringe when I here their commercials on the radio, lie, lie, lie and doing it all so wrong. Losing weight might be hard but if done right will stay off and this way is not the right way. They have not been around under the name of Slim 4 Life for 25 years like the above add states.

    I also signed up for this program and find that it is working even better than I hoped.
    I issue is with the employees or councilors at the location where I weigh in.
    Like most women who have struggled with their weight I am pretty depressed by the whole thing right now.
    I don’t need to pay to have another depressed person add to my own despondency with their own issues.
    One of the women whom I have seen has never introduced herself to me nor does she make eye contact.
    Engaging in any kind of conversation is beyond her ability or desire.
    I left my appointment last Saturday ready to fling myself out into the traffic and end it all.
    I felt even more hopeless and not at all encouraged by this person’s behavior and attitude.
    Others at this location have at least given me a smile and an “at a girl”. But not this person.
    I have to wonder why she remains on staff. I can’t be the only one affected by her negativity.

    There are most certainly appetite suppressants, metabolic boosters and mood elevators. They are in herbal form very powerful and required for the program. They may raise blood pressure and blood sugar. That is what happened to me, and as a diabetic the very low calorie diet made me feel very sick. I was assured,more than once, that the diet was safe for me .NOT

    I definite agree with the info you have provided. I struggled for 3 months to continue the weightloss program after losing 25 pounds quickly. The counselors encouraged water flushes (increase water and reduce certain food amounts). After doing this repeatedly, with their encouragement, my physician took me off the diet for uncontrollable heavy menstual periods taking place every other week. Since off the ‘plan’ all is back to normal.
    Buyer Beware.

    Thank goodness I have read the reviews for Silm4life, I was going to call to make an appointment, The reviews are were scary and horrible no doubt true. It sounds like to me most clients feel like once they sit in that chair it’s all about the money. These people absolutely or not professionals they don’t seem to care about your health at all. They have to make a quota off of each person so they need to get the money fast, or they may lose there job at the risk of the peoples health. Their should be a nurse on staff that is caring and compassionate. I wonder have Slim4life ever turn away a client because of health issue. With so many completes they should be investigation.

They have a payment plan which I just found out about. I put it all on a credit card. I’m mostly mad at myself for allowing myself to spend that much. I have lost 4 pounds.

    Quit spending the money and just follow the plan. Find a buddy you can talk to or someone that will eat the foods with you. I know this program works, but I never paid anyone for it. I got a list of the foods and the directions from a friend. Unfortunately, I had some terrible circumstances for about 5 years and gained weight back. I recently restarted. You can email me as a support. I find I do better when I do the buddy system.

    Just started Slim4Life and realize it’s the dumbest thing I ever did. I only need to lose 15 pounds, but I needed a boost to get the weight loss going, and somehow I let this snake-oil saleslady convince me to sign a contract. They are very careful NOT to tell you at sign-up that you must buy all the supplements, etc., and I for one do not intend to use those beyond my initial allotment. I am being faithful to the program, have lost 6 pounds in 10 days (4 of those the first weekend, during “prep” phase), but I am miserable and HATE this program. I have eaten healthy all my adult life, and I know how to diet, but I just got suckered into this deal. Avoid Slim4Life at all costs.

    I had a free consultation today, and I left the office in Las Colinas Irving Texas extremely angry at the associate. I have steadily packed on weight for over a year now, and it took a lot of courage to walk myself in there today. However, I was listened to just for the sake of trying to manipulate me and work on my vulnerable side having gained so much weight, I was sad, and that associate knew how desperate I was to lose the weight. She talked her lips off making me think that she was a friendly caring soul who wanted to help me take this burden of 45 pounds off. However, when I told her that I was on a strict budget and did not want to waste my time or hers, she quickly told me that she had different affordable plan options that could make this possible for me. So I sat through more of her bs. I was honest about my budget, and I guess because they see people who are so ready to start and lose weight they work on your emotional piece like a used car salesman. Fact is that it is not affordable and available to anyone like me who chooses to pay her rent, utilities, car payment, and feed her 17 year old daughter before handing over nearly 1,000 dollars to Slim4Life. She then started to laugh at me when I told her I couldn’t afford it, and would just go to another weight loss clinic in the city that was a lot cheaper or go use the weight watchers online plan I paid for. She sat there and laughed at me for “being a fool.” She humiliated me and belittled me in the worst way I can ever say anyone has. I told her she was laughing at me, and for that I saw through her phony snake oil salesman pitch and told her to rip up my information. I told her what she did was mean and offensive, and I would not ever do business with that company. People please. Wise up. This company is greedy and they use an individual’s pain and desperation for losing weight to steal from you making you believe that they are there to help you. THey are there to help themselves into your wallet, and when I challenged her on this and wouldn’t budge, her nastiness came out. I have never had such a terrible experience before in any clinic or any program. This company is unethical.

    Alicia,
    I’m in Las Colinas and I joined the program in August after relocating to TX. I feel like I know who you’re talking about…if you’re still looking to lose weight and looking for a weight-loss buddy, feel free to email me.

    Hi Alicia , I live in Grand Prairie ,Texas . I did for almost 34 yrs. in Irving, so I’m really close to Los Colinas. I was really excited about going to go in there and check on this program. From what I’ve read ,the program costs MUCH more than is advertised & the ” counselors ” make you feel worse than already. I’m really glad I read yours & Shauna’s review. I can’t handle people like you’re ( & others ) talking about, Ha , I feel I would have got her too, so I’m going to try somewhere else . Maybe get that Atkins book .

    Hey there. I did this program back when it was National Quick Weight Loss. It does work and I never went to the company. I got a list of the foods and directions from a friend and lost over 50 lbs. Since then I gained it back and recently started the program again. I lived this lifestyle for 2 years and I promise you it works. You can email me back and I will send you the list. Don’t pay these people. The food alone will help you lose the weight.

    I have been on the program for over 2 months. I have not lost as quickly as they advertise but I have had a steady weight loss. I like the supplements & the program. It is easy to follow and stay on the suggested menu without feeling starved. I big problem with them is their management and staff. I finally quit going for “weigh in”. I have an accurate scale here and I don’t have to drive across town to meet with people who are more depressed than I am. The manager at the location where I was going has yet to introduce herself to me or make eye contact. I have NEVER once seen her smile. It is my experience that most of us chubbys got this way because of underlying issues. We are already “down” on ourselves and usually depressed. Why pay money to have those feelings perpetuated. I would suggest the owners of this program take a look at their staff and evaluate with an honest approach. Still working the program. Both my husband and I have lost 12 lbs. without even really trying. Leaving off bread, cereals, desserts & starches. How hard is that?

    Has anyone ever tried to get their money back from these people? I told them that I had multiple health issues that restricted just what I could eat and was told that they were sure that they’d have plenty of options for me to work with. I did tell the counselor what my health issues were including all of my food allergies were. She said it would work for me. When I came in for my initial group instructions I was told COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE!!! It was then suggested that I put my program on hold. Not sure why as nothing was going to change. I’m out $500+ and have never even started program.
    I’d be happy with half of my $$ and the $ for the “Starter Kit” I was given.
    Anybody have any ideas????

    Free Advise

    Sue,
    Please don’t take this personally but why don’t you and all of the other, I want something for nothing,(could be why you can’t lose weight in the first place) people on here stop asking for a hand out and go get this information from the source. Taking proprietary information without paying for it is theft. It sounds like this company has been around for a very long time and the crazy thing about a free market society is that if the people don’t patronize a business they close their doors and cease to exist, so they must be doing something right. Will everyone that visits a business be happy every time? No! Again they must be doing something right if they continue to stay in business. Call the people or better yet go talk with one of the staff grill them until you, yourself, can make an intelligent decision on whether this is for you or not. I wish you all the success in the world with your weight loss.

    I joined Slim 4 Life recently and so far so good…first 3 days are prep days…strictly 2-3 lbs beef/raw green veggies/1/2 orange in the morning and afternoon. 80 oz water per day…you are required to take their supplements which are pricey. Supplements will run you about $225/month. It is a year program all together. Make sure you join and mention their promotion. You save a ton!!!! You will need to visit center 3x week for guidance. They want you to be successful.

    I went to slim4life yesterday. I asked the counselor if their products were all natural that I would be taking. “Oh yes, all of our products are natural!” I trusted here at her word. She gave me the bag of “goodies”, and when I returned home and looked at them, all of them have many non-natural ingredients in them. Now I have these products, how and what do I do in order to get refunded? I am told that they do not reimburse you if you change your mind. I am so upset, and angry.

    I signed up for this type of program in the past, don’t remember if it was called Slim for Life back then.It also had supplements and counselors. The pills made me jittery and my heart race. The counselor was a joke. When I told her that i cheated and had a snickers she says next time just put it in your mouth but then quickly spit it out. I dropped about 2 sizes but when I could no longer afford the program I quickly gained it back. I heard the radio commercials for Slim4Life and considered signing up but after reading the comments I will just sign up for WW again….that did work, just need to stick with it.

    This program does work if you eat only what they say and take a lot of pills.
    Everyone I know has gained the weight back when the program was over OR had to spend a lot more money again. There is little to no counseling when you ask for it.

    I started Slim4Life in April 2012, I lost about 6 lbs the first week and then kind of fluctuated for a couple of weeks. By the end of May I was down 17 lbs. I was happy about the weightloss, but my goal loss was 40 lbs and according to their calculation I would reach my goal by July 1. I never reached goal and my weight just kept fluctuating 1-2 lbs each week. In July, all the personnel changed out and everytime I checked in my meal plan would get changed or how much supplements to take kept changing. I had a different counselor everyday and they each had their own suggestions on what I should do to keep losing while on the program. None of the new counselors had weight issues and one of them told me that I could do it on my own for less. I was told that I could go to any health store and get the supplements (that were similar to theirs) and follow a diet/exercise plan for less than i was spending there. The couselor didn’t even use the program, they had a separate program they used. I’m convinced it is all about money. Once I hit a plateau, they started pushing more supplements. I haven’t been back and don’t plan on it. I lost $2500 plus for 4 months and didn’t reach my goal.

    If you are thinkng of working for this company you better check into it more in depth. Once they hire you then you have 2 weeks of training followed by a test. The training is mostly about the different kinds of programs that are offered once a customer joins. All are based on how much each individual needs to lose and the health they are in. Once you get those different plans down, which are eating plans 1- 5, learn to take measurements with a measuring tape, and weigh someone on a scale, you got it! Thats what you do every single day, every day of your life, while you are an employee of Slim 4 Life. Then at closin time you clean the whole store, ( which includes cleaning the bathroom toilets) take inventory of all your products, cash out all youyo receipts, all after the last customer leaves, Nothng is done.on a computer , it is all done by you, the employee. Thats all while making a BIG. $9.00 an hour. Doesnt take a Rocket Scientist to weigh customers and clean toilets. The owners get all the money and you bust your butt doint all the work!!!! No paid days off or holidays, no insurance and no clothes allowance. You buy all your own black scrubs, shoes, and lab coat. nlll I can say is this is a horrible company to work for!!!!! You will regret it.

    Slim 4 life is too expensive and if someone shares the program a person can loose the weight… It’s all about showing you how to eat… I didn’t do all the supplements and my program was still over $300.00… I also purchased Atkins food products which are much more cheaper then Slim 4 life and less sugar… i wouldn’t recommend this program… try something else go to the library and get a healthy eating book…. but not this…

    would lean towards Irritable bowel. The senna leaf in their tea is a KNOWN HARSH laxative that can inflame the initestinal walls. They cannot find it by any types of tests/ there is not one, having a upper/lower GI that RULES out all other conditions typically lead them to that diagnosis. I was in pain and hell misery after using a product from the health food store, lost 20 lbs in 2 weeks, couldnt eat, drink, threw up, diarrhea. STOP that product!!! Use aloe vera juice as a drink to calm the inflammation out of your intestines. THESE ppl are NOT trained to even KNOW what these ingredients do to a person much less tell you what to watch for, or avoid. The massive amount of stimulants in the thermogenics and the metabolizer and caffeine and gurrana can be dangerous to anyone with any heart issues. The senna tea reduces your potassium levels as well as there “pharmaceutical” grade diuretics, but no one is running blood work to make sure the electrolyte balance is not disturbed. i.e HEART arrythmias. This is a dangerous plan with not one qualified person monitoring anything other than how much u need to spend and the scale!!

    I went to Slim4Life for 8 months.I lost 50lbs, but the changes outside were not how I felt inside. The staff told me it was only guarenteed weight loss if I took the pills and no refund. I figured if I was healthier I don’t have to worry. The pills made my heart race and I had a hard time sleeping most times. They had the right idea on foods to eat and when to eat them. However, the snacks and shakes are a overpriced joke! When I told the rep I was speaking to about my heart beating faster she said she was new and went to school for something else nonmedical and was recently trained on this program and was not sure if that was normal. But her fellow staff came over and reminded me if I got off the pills I was not going to lose weight as fast and no guarentee.
    Once I told them they said it was to bad because I probably won’t finish the plan anyway then. They asked if I had anything else to talk about and walked away. I WAS DISTURBED! I gained half my weight back after I left and have no regrets about gaining because I had no real medical problems anyway. I regret prepaying them for a year which they wouldn’t say the price for unless I told them how much I was willing to put down….!

    What makes this slim4life system work is the frequent weigh-ins. Eat a cheeseburger and it stays with you for a couple of days. Eat light always and you will lose weight. Go to GNC they actually have areas of suppliments dedicated to weight loss programs. When you walk in and tell the worker there they actually have the knowledge to assist you in matching up the pills. At many time over 1/2 the cost. Mention GNC to slim4life workers and they just freak out swearing that GNC is lying and their suppliments are better. I still go to slim4life but I use a mixture of GNC and common sense. When you go in to a Slim4Life office watch they work. It is like a bill collectors office. Always on the selling and constant calling telling you what’s on sale for a limited time only. You have to buy now or they will run out. Then peek into their closet and see lots of stuff is stock. I have lost on the program but it is largely to to the frequent weigh-ins and eating lots more veggies. I am type II diabetic and am able to eat 3 fruits a day and my numbers are still low. In short, use your head and common sense some of the ladies are quite supportive just watch the wallet.

    Slim4Life —

    Ask the person that counsels you for their RD credentials. Chances are no one in the entire organization will be a registered dietician. Ask if you counselor is a DTR. Dietetic Technicians Registered work with, and under the supervision of, a registered dietitian. They assist in planning and implementing nutritional programs and services in facilities such as hospitals and schools. Dietetic technicians may specialize in a particular area, such as nutritional care or food service management. Nutritional care technicians determine the nutritional needs of their patients by interviewing them and reviewing their medical histories. They help patients plan meals that fit into their prescribed diet and food budget. They also report the patient’s progress or any dietary problems to the supervising dietitian. You may be lucky at most to get a counselor that has a bachelor in dietetics with a concentration in nutrition. After graduating they then must obtain a minimum of 1200 supervised hours as a intern at a credientialed facility. Afterwards they must pass the test to become a Registered Dietician. The people at Slim 4 Life work from a script! These counselors are people from off the street that may have been a maid, secretary, teacher, food service worker, bus driver, etc. These people have no business giving clients advice and selling them worthless supplements that have a extreme markup. They pay $5 for a supplement and charge their clients $130! Yikes. Please rethink Slim 4 Life. You life is very important. I wish you could see the houses, the cars, all around lavish lifestyles of these store owners. They are living high on the hog from monies they swindle out of you. Plus, they have no clue how these supplements can affect ones life. This program can be very dangerous to you.

    Check out Jorge Cruise’s “The Belly Fat Cure” book. Sounds very, very similar to slim 4 life, in that his plan has no sugar, lots of veggies, & good proteins. His book has lists, recipes, and costs probably less than 1 week on the slim 4 life program.

Thank You all so very much for sharing on this site. Even if this site is promting something it doesn’t matter to me They deserve many pats for allowing all the communication here. 1 docs are docs but herbs CAN AND WILL KILL so be real careful with them, natural can be that someone scraped the moss out of their back yard and got a boost or they can be good for you.

    Some of you people are pathetic, crying about having to spend several hundred, maybe even a thousand or more, dollars on a program that allows you to eat real foods and become healthy while actually losing weight. Of course you have to buy their products, they are a business and need to profit. But everything they sell is of high quality and really does work.

    I started on Slimgenics in April of 2011, and now on Octoer 1st have lost 75 pounds and kept it off. And I’m eating ice cream, cake, and all that good stuff because they showed me how I could eat that stuff and still stay healthy.

    Stop whining about price and getting ripped off you crybabies. If it didn’t work for you, it’s because YOU screwed up, not the program. Get some self discipline. You’re gonna spend that money on food anyway, would you rather it be at fast food, medications, and beer, or healthy foods and effective supplements? Your choice. I chose Slimgenics and am healthier than ever.

    Get off your couch and spend your money on something to change your life!

    I have only been on the diet for 5 days and I am taking the metabolizer and all the other pills. I feel horrible, have indigestion, extremely nervous, can’t sleep. Have only taken one metablizer per meal because more make me climb the walls. I have diabetes, type 2 and on several meds so I wanted to take off the weight to eliminatate taking so many meds and to feel better. I need to lose about 70 lbs., but I don’t think I can continue to feel so bad every day. Wish I had checked it out more thoroughly before I spent so much money on program and supplements.

    My fiance and I started slim4life 3 weeks ago and I have lost 17 lbs and he’s lost 12 – (I have more to lose than he does). I worked this program years ago and lost 50 lbs in 4 months and kept it off for quite some time – but eventually strayed away from the eating plan and put the weight back on – but that was my own fault for not executing a healthy eating plan. I had no physical repercussions from the plan at all.

    I went on this plan because I know it works – yes, it’s not cheap, but neither is a new wardrobe of ‘fat’ clothes. In the prep 3-day plan I was hungry a lot, but once I started on the regular diet, I find it hard to eat everything I am supposed to, and I am always full. The diet incorporates all the food groups, and I feel really great – I am no longer tired and have far more energy. It’s not a diet for everyone, but I couldn’t be more pleased about how easy it is to stay disciplined and eat the right foods and the right amounts. I’m sure it’s like most eating plans – you have to follow it for it to work – and the supplements on this diet are super tasty!

    For those concerned about health issues – how healthy were you before you went on slim4life?

    And, for those who are touting how awful it is – why does everyone want the plan?

    I started Slimgenics about 6 week ago and I’m down 20 lbs. I feel full and satisfied from a food variety standpoint: and I’m a chef. Obviously, not every plan will work for everyone, but I’m a little stunned at some of the comments here because they simply make false statements about the program. I’m glad I did not base my decision about Slimgenics on this board, but went in and learned for myself. I asked questions. So yeah, the sales pitch is a little slick and I wish they didn’t do it – they don’t need to do it – but you get that a lot of places. I took some initiative to ask questions before plopping my credit card on the desk, and they answered all of them for me. As for cost, no, it’s not cheap. But neither were any of the fad products, gadgets, gym memberships, and other crap I’ve purchased over the years to lose weight. This is working, and I DO see it as a permanent solution. The first phase is restrictive, but clearly, my own judgment is what got me to be 100 lbs overweight, so I’m happy to put those decisions in someone else’s hands if it will make me successful. And for everyone asking for a pirated copy of the program: it won’t work that way. If you can’t afford the center program, do the online program.

    I’ve posted on this site before in regard to Slim 4 Life. My experience was negative but I’ve taken up a diet plan that works for me. Slim 4 Life showed me WHAT DOESN’T WORK. $2,500 dollars later. I was stuipid

    For me personally, Slim 4 Life was a financially devastaing failure. I could not and wouldn’t want to eat the Slim 4 Life way for the rest of my life. What a horrible thought.

    What amazes me is all the beggers on this site who don’t want to pay the money themselves, read all the negative comments and even about people who have been made seriously ILL on this program and all they can think about is getting a free copy of the plan! What NERVE!

    There is no “Miracle” to losing weight and plans like Slim 4 Life don’t work for the LONG term. They burn you out.

    It makes me so sad to see how many of you have had such bad experiences with SlimGenics/Slim4Life.

    I started the program in CO back in the fall of 2009. I lost about 25 pounds very easily. I then started to “cheat” and stopped losing, but didn’t gain either. I got pregnant in the summer of 2010 and had my Dr. fax them a note to put my account on hold until 6 weeks after my delivery date. I’ll be going back in this week to re-start. They said they’ll have me on a different plan since I am nursing…so we’ll see how it goes!

    I never had any issues with not feeling well. And the counselors at my center are so sincere and friendly.

    The diet works. I don’t think they have any guarantees or a money back policy if it doesn’t work for you. It’s very calorie restrictive until you hit the maintenance part. If you’re not losing weight, you’re not following the plan. There are 5 plans-for however much weight you need to lose. With the 5th plan being the vegetarian plan. I’ve been on the diet for 6 weeks, I’ve lost 24 pounds and 16 inches. I feel better than I ever have. It’s expensive–but the counseling that is given and the tools they give you to lose and KEEP it off are life changing. I don’t regret paying all the money at all. I paid all of it up front and got a 30% discount. It’s hard for the first 2-3 weeks-you have to get rid of old/bad habits and addictions. Just give yourself 30 days–you’ll see!

    I joined Slim4Life and was cheated out of almost $3,000. I told them up front that I work 2 full time jobs and average about 3-4 hrs of sleep a night. They told me that it wouldn’t matter. I lost about 6 lbs then I stopped losing. After my weeks was up, they discovered I should have been on plan 3. They told me that they would not place me on the maintenance program until I got to my weight I wanted. The next time I went in, they put me on maintenance. When I called to complain, I was told they followed their instructions and that I never got to my guaranteed weight lose and didn’t get a refund. Plus one counselor would have me do something for the week, but the next time I would go in (reported 2xs a wk) I was told by a different one not to do that and to do something different. I wasted more food as if spending all that money wasn’t enough. All they did was confuse me and DIDN’T TEACH ME TO BE SLIM 4 LIFE like they say they would.

    I do not know if Slimgenics program is exactly the same as the Slim4life program was. I joined Slimgenics back in Jan.2010 and lost 105 pounds in 12 months. I never took the thermo boost after initially trying it as it gave me hot flashes. The Herbal Supplements and Carb Blockers did work, but I stopped all supplements, except the snacks (which I love) after about 6 months due to cost. I have always taken my own multivitamin and Fish oil tabs, along with a B-complex, and Calcium/Vit D supplement. Exercise is technically not necessary to loose weight, which is nice when you first start since being heavy can cause injury to the joints. However, exercise is good for your heart and as you feel slimmer, you want to move, which I do now on a regular basis, but not excessively. This helps with maintaining the weight loss. My Triglycerides went from 200 to 100 in one month on the plan. I was able to get off my cholesterol medication 6 months into the program (244 dropped to 165) I have kept the weight off since January 2011, with some minor ups and downs, but overall managing to keep it off better than any other program I’ve tried, and I’ve probably tried over 25 different plans over the past 30 years. I hope I can keep it off.

    I recently completed Slimgenics (Slim4Life) and I was very happy with my outcome. When I started in January I weighed 275lbs. By October I was done and weighed 186lbs. Yes, it did cost me some money, but it was the same amount that I spent on a new treadmill and workout programs the year before. The foods they allow you to eat suck at first, but this is for a life style change and it sucks because you probably wherent eating the right stuff in the first place. Hence why you are joining Slimgenics. After a couple weeks you will learn the right way to eat and can easily adapt to the new eating lifestyle. I did cheat a couple times, and it showed when I would go weigh in. But when you start to see weight loss EVERY time you go weigh in, you dont want to cheat. I would tell anybody who wants to lose weight to join this program. YOU HAVE TO BE DEDICATED TO THE PROGRAM FOR IT TO WORK.

    I called Slim 4 Life after hearing their ad on the radio promoting: “30 days, for $30, to lose 30 lbs” When I called I mentioned the promo and the price and wanted to make sure I did not have to buy suppliments for requireed food. I was told the diet was not dependent upon required suppliments. I made an appointment for my initial consultation, which turned out to be 1 hour sales pitch where I learned it was over $300 for 30 days because you had to purchase $270 work of required suppliments and artificial diet food that is hardly edible. Once I paid, I had to wait 3 days and then come back to the clinic to receive my “customized” diet – which was not customized at all – but to my surprise did require that dieter eat 2 “suppliments” a day…again ensuring the company that each dieter would have to spend another $30-50 per week to keep up with the required food and supplients. I thought I would actually be given a “weight loss counselor”, when in reality, I was given a sales attendant. This company uses false advertising and deceptive marketing practices, pushy sales people, and artificial and expensive diet food. I’m sure some people can lose weight on the diet, but it is not a customized diet and you are not given professional expert advise from your “counselor”. I’ve learned that when a prospect calls to ask a question on the cost (like I did), the staff is trained to ask other questions and go into a phone script to get them in for their first appoint (ie sales pitch). But then when someone comes in for their “free” consultation, they find out that they have to pay it all up front, plus buy $270 worth of products, as the “starter kit”. It appears it is all about who can sell the most. If you are thinking about going to Slim 4 Life to lose weight, don’t. There are cheaper and better weightloss programs who value the patient for more than their wallet.

    I joined S4L in Texas a couple weeks ago. I went in on the $30 special advertised on the radio. Add another zero.. it cost me $300 for 4 weeks with all the supplements, etc. I felt hungry and deprived all the time. They counselors are super nice at my center and they do seem like they want to help. However, If you gain or even cheat, they put you on a flush with tons of water which is okay but they also take away 1 fruit and 1 starch (you only get 2 of each per day). Plus, the list of foods was so restricted I just couldn’t eat any more baked/dry fish or chicken. Plus you don’t get just any fruit or vegetable, it’s also super limited and you can’t eat them together (ie: no mixed salad) I suppose it would work for someone who was SUPER motivated and didn’t focus on what you could and couldn’t eat. Even though it’s slower weight loss I really think Weight Watchers is a better program and way of life.

    I noticed that several people have mentioned going from hearing about them so much on radio stations. I’ve heard these too and they sound more like radio liners for the DJs to read instead of actual experiences by the DJs themselves. It’s another form of radio ad, but meant to be more conversational. I think a lot of listeners probably think they’re hearing someone’s testimonial rather than a paid for radio ad. In the case of S4L it feels more like another way to dupe the public. I haven’t personally tried S4L, but from what I’ve read in the reviews it sounds very similar to MRC, which I did do a few years back.

    I joined slim for life many years ago and the program works. The program works because it is a low calorie diet. I lost 65 pounds in two and a half months. It was from 10-15 to 12-31. I did cheat on the the diet during those time. My meal plan consisted of a egg and low calorie piece of toast(whole wheat) for breakfast. A orange or apple as a midmorning snack. for lunch I would have a protien 4-6 ounces(chicken and fish you can have 6 ounces) two serving of veggies. I would have green beans or salad. stay with the green veggies and you should be fine. Low fat salad dressing and a piece of bread. A apple or orange for mid day snack and repeat lunch for dinner. I took all the supplements and did not have any problems. The say no processed lunch meats and no pork. Red meat only twice a week and at least two days apart. I quit because a the counselors are rude and ignorant. They are just high pessure sales people. I was talked back and left again because of the rude counselors. Same thing happenned with my father-in-law. I did not pay all that money to be abused. However the diet does work. The problem is that the food gets bland. You mostly cook with pam. One small pat of butter a day. It is very low fat. I am now trying a combonation of the slim for life and the atkins diet. I have lost 12 ponds in the 22 days. I do the above meal plan till I can not stand it anymore and then I switch to hard core atkins(no carbs or at least under 15 a day) and eat all the meat I want then I will switch back to slim for life plan when I feel like I have had enough good food to eat. I think goals is another problem. Measuring your goals on a day basis just makes you feal bad when you miss them. My goal is to lose 10 pounds a month this year. Every month with no carry over. I now do not worry about the day to day flucuations of the scale. Set monthly goals that are reasonable and you will be better off. Another problem that I had with slim for life is that they did not want me working out. Hope this helps.

    Do you have the list of foods to take and when to eat. I work nights and most diets are geared to people who work during the day. I know you have to limit dairy products and carrots,peas and corn which i do not eat most of the time. I know the cost is really prohibitive and so many problems with the supplements as stated on the internet. Can you tell me where to find the diet on line or can you send me the list of foods? I would really appreciate it. I find limiting sugar is a key ingredient as well as no artifical sweetners or diet drinks with artifical ingredients. I feel so much better when I don’t eat it then my mother has to go and bake a lemon cake:) I have told her to quit making fatening deserts. Can you please send me the diet if you have it for the Slim4life? Thank you.

    I joined Slimgenics (AKA slim4life) mid October 2010. So far to date I have lost 42 pounds and am so happy with the plan. I do the home program and probably spend about $20 a week on the up keep of the plan and it was $300 to start. The money I spent was well worth it and I am still losing. My ultimate goal is 75 lbs. I haven’t platued yet and have nothing but pleasant things to say about slimgenics. I do get some of the supplements from dietdirect.com they are a little cheaper then slimgenics.

    I went in today for my first consultation. She told me everything about the program and then it came down to the money. When it got down to this I felt like I was buying a timeshare. First it was $569, then $369 but with no supplements, then 30 days for 30 dollars and supplements with no maintenance was $150. Everytime that she told me a dollar amount I told her that I needed to discuss it with my Fiance. At the end she said that if I did not do it today that I would have to pay full price of $899. She left the room to make me a copy and came back in with a coupon that if I came in on Friday with it that I could get $200 off and it would only be $399 for the year plan with maintenance. I don’t understand why they wouldn’t want to offer you the cheapest value first, because as she went I felt like she was a usedcar salesman and I already had my mind made up before I left. I felt like I was being scammed into it.

It is a strict, COMMON SENSE, weight loss program. Unfortunately it took a lot of money before we took it serious. In 4 weeks we have lost 40lbs together. While my husband has had no side effects my stomach has been bothering me and after I drink a lemonlime thermo boost I want to puke. I’ve also been feeling some acid reflux. I went to doctor and tested positive for Hpylori bacteria and am now on a14 day Prevpac antibiotic. The Dr. did not seem to think the diet had anything to do with it. It is just unfortunate that it is happening at the same time. When I shared the info with the center they were sympathetic and told me to do what was best for my health. They still want me to come in and check on me. I already prepaid the program and they are still nice. They could just let me go since they have their money but that is not the case. The positives thus far, Councelors are very nice and helpful, I’m eating much fresher foods, and learning to take the time to write things down has helped me make time for me, something most moms with young kids don’t do. My husband is also encouraged and even eats more protein than instructed and still looses weight.
    The negatives, $$$$…Nausea. Be sure that if on the program look at it in a positive but not slave driving, experience.

    If everyone just focused on a low fat, low carb, low sodium, water drinking, and exercise you would not need to join the program. If you need extra support and can afford it then go for it. I’ll let you know later what happened with my stomach. If I have to cut down on the pill taking I will not let it bring me down cuz as long as I eat healthy I’m doing well!

    Praying helps too!

    I just joined 12 days ago, and lost 8 pounds the first week which was great. But now I am sick at my stomach all the time, and non of the representives seems to care or have an answer. Wished I had of researched a little more before joining the program. I wll continue with the eating guidline to some degree, but not sure I will continue with the pills, and supplements. I am about $783.00 into the program. Will not invest anymore money.

    i have been on the program for 5 days now and have lost 5 lbs so far, but i am a little nervous now after reading all of these comments. yes it is very expensive but i figure it is my health and someone is holding me accountable for what i am eating, which i really need. all the people i have delt with have been really nice and understanding of the fact that i may not be able to afford supplements after my first batch. they all say that i will still lose weight just MAYBE not as quickly as if i was still taking them. yes you have to keep a journal of what you eat and yes, you do have to think about what you eat more each day. but isnt the reason why most of us are over weight in the first place because we dont take time for ourselves and we just pick food up and dont even consider how many calories we are putting into our bodies! i think that i will just keep my positive attitude that i have as of right now and hope that maybe i will be more lucky than some of the other people that have posted. good luck amber with whatever decision you make:)

    Using protein shakes every day… one for breakfast or for lunch…will give you a jump on your fat burning plan and provide you with a healthy alternative to a more strict diet involving food deprivation…which always backfires.

    I did the program 2 years ago and it was very expensive. I should have done alot more homework regarding the program. I wantiet to lose 25 lbs and I followed the plan very closely using their supplements. The couselors had never been on the plan and obviously did not have weight problems. After 4 months/16 weeks I did lose 20 lbs. 1 lb per week was not their promise and they really didn’t act interested in you if you complained.

    I have a thyroid disorder and had tried EVERYTHING to lose weight. I had really given up hope that I could lose weight. My girlfriend who had about 100 lbs to lose started the program because her brother-in-law lost 100 lbs on it. Within 6 months (give or take she had lost 30 lbs.). she looks amazing and hadn’t even hit her goal. So, I started the program in September, so far I have lost 20 lbs. I am amazed at the results. I can tell you what I eat is the following:

    2 – metabolizers in the AM
    2 – EFA’s
    1 – Vitamin Supplement
    1 – carb blockers
    all slim for life brand.

    Thank I use their thermoboost but instead of putting it in 8 oz of water, I put it in 32 oz. The orange taste like dreamcicle and is so yummy!!

    Then I eat a protein bar (my fav is the peanut butter chocolate) and a piece of fruit. I also have 2 cups of coffee with skim milk and truvia.

    Then I have a snack which usually consists of a piece of 40 calorie bread with I can’t believe its butter spread (sometimes I use cinnamon & truvia and toast).

    Lunch – I take
    2 – metabolizers
    2 – EFA’s
    all slim for life brand.

    I eat up to 2 cups of field greens with 6 oz of chicken and Drew’s dressing (low -fat, low sodium, low sugar). The recommend Kraft but I HATE Kraft so I choose drews.

    Then later I have a small apple or other fruit for another snack.

    Then I take
    2 – metabolizers
    2 – EFA’s
    1 – carb blockers
    all slim for life brand before dinner

    For dinner I can have chkn, fish, beef etc and up to 2 veggies with ICBIB spread.

    Then about 9:00 pm I will have my last protien snack of the day which could be soy nuts, hot chocolate, or other S4L products.

    I am not hungry at all and feel healthy! I have about 50 more lbs to go and excited I am on my way.

    The program is expensive but to me its well worth it. I about to fit into size 12 jeans and haven’t done that in 10+ years!

    Highly recommend the diet and the counselors at my center are amazing. I have laughed, cried and felt empathy with all these women.

    I joined Slim for life the end of Aug. I have lost 35#’s so far. I am pleased with it. They do tailor the plan to your schedule. The list(s) they offer to eat off of for my plan consist of 2 protein (4-6 oz) 4 veggies (fresh) 2 if cooked, 2 fruits, 2 starches and 1 fat. All this in portion sized. You do take supplements for protein and vitamin, herbalizer, fish oils. It is all about control though. If you shop smartly you can purchase the supplements outside of the organization, but if you do not change your eating habits permanently you will fail. Yes they don’t push exercise but they don’t tell you not too. They encourage you to if you choose to loose and tone faster. If you want to constantly come up with excuses as to why you didn’t eat on the plan, just realize you are lying to yourself. I am on call and keep protein bars and drinks with me as well as I have cooked meals up in advance incase I need to eat quickly. I also have chosen healthier foods when dining out. Yes I miss Mc Donalds fries, but I am going to eat a piece of pumpkin pie after my salad and turkey on Thanksgiving!

    I started the program Oct 19 and lost about 8 lbs in less than two weeks. The program is very very very expensive! I wish I had done my homework before I spent the money. It is very restrictive and time consuming. Your constant focus in on eating and drinking because you are taking 6 metabolizers, 6 EFAs/fish oils, 2 carb blockers and a vitamin daily along with 2 fruits, 2 starches, 2 proteins, 4 veggies and 4 oz of skim milk. Not to mention the 80 oz of water you have to drink plus 2 of their vegetable protein supplements. Nothing out of a can, box or bag except tuna is ever allowed. Too many rules to follow – example you can only have beef three times a week but never two days in a row and never on the day you have tuna. Exercise is an after thought in their program but you are given information and tips. Bottom line – don’t pay the money until you search out the program for yourself!

    I started about 4 weeks ago and have already lost 12 pounds. I find it to be an pretty easy diet to follow. I am never hungry, I wake up with alot of energy in the morning. I did have to pay extra for all the supplements and stuff but I think my health will be worth it. The bars are very good. The tomatoe soup is awful!! The chicken soup is ok. Ask to try the stuff beofre you buy it though. I am going to keep working it.

    Slim4Life, life most programs takes the want to more than the program being anything super extraordinary. Initially tried the program in January of 2008, lost 20 pounds in 2 months and quit because lots of turmoil in my life at the time.

    Began again in October of 2010 and have lost about 10 pounds in a month. However, have discovered that the “Metabolizer” is NOT good for me. I’ve been on antidepressants for nearly 20 years and after 2-3 weeks of taking this product began spiralling into depression I haven’t experienced in more than 15 years – was probably a factor in my initial attempt failing but I didn’t realize it at the time. I’ve discussed this with the counselors and am continuing in the program without the supplements because the accountability helps me to stick to a healthy plan. It can be expensive but you do not have to take the supplements for the plan to work so the money is worthwhile from that aspect.

I am now on stablization and have found the program very helpful.I have 3 friends on the program and family members fixing to start, yes I have lost weight before, but never in the right areas I have now. This week I took no supplements except the protein bars and lost 3.4 for the week.

    Slimgenics is the same thing as Slim4Life from what I understand. I’m doing Slimgenics and I’m SOOOOO glad I decided not to buy any products up front at their “bulk” rate since you can find the products online for that price anytime. I’ll be on the program for 2 years so what I needed was to be accountable to someone, and that’s all I’m paying them for. When you sing up you get your “starter” and I knew I couldn’t afford the $300+ dollars I would be spending a month on the snacks and supplements, so I went to my neighborhood whole foods and health food store and have found more natural replacements at a fraction of the cost of their supplements. I’d love to write their corporate office and find out why they see the need to up charge their product by so much, but I can’t find their address, I guess I’ll go through the BBB and see what I can find. It’s rather sketchy to me that there isn’t a “company office” home type address or information anywhere.

    Right now the company has an A rating with the BBB I’d encourage people that get the snarky attitudes from the sales people to submit a complaint with them. It’s really easy and it will hopefully draw the company to a quicker conclusion they should fix their focus and their prices.

    I bought Metabolizers off the internet b/c they were much cheaper thinking they were Slim4Life’s and I was sick for two weeks. They WERE NOT the same as the Metabolizers I buy from my KC center. I never recommend getting products off the internet, especially Ebay. You never know what you’re actually getting. Internet buyers beware!

    I as well have signed up with S4L. So far I have been doing it for about 3 weeks and have lost about 15 pounds, but am $600 in the negative. One of my friends did it and got great results, loosing 65 pds in 18 weeks, so I thought I would try it. I have also been hearing about it alot on the local Christian station I listen to. When I went it, I was told that it was going to cost me $602 to join, $300 of that just for the starter kit. She told me the ONLY way I would get that price was if I paid $100 right then, so of course I did. She was being really nice and informative, but as soon as I gave her the $100, I was being walked out of the door while she was telling me to come back the next week once I had the other $200 for the starter kit. They did tell me that I had to purchase supplements at $9-$15 a supplement,to have guarantee weight lose, but so far I have spent far more than that, thats not including the actual cost of the pills. I have noticed that some of the couselors are somewhat rude and pushy, especially when it comes to the money part.Everything that I have bought I have paid for in cash, which I regret. I work for a Credit Card processing company, and while I do know that they have a no refund policy, I also know that it is against Visa/Mastercard regulations to have someone pay for services not rendered. They are not supposed to be charging peoples credit cards for services 3 moths from now, or so on. Companies that are doing that are subject to chargebacks and about 95% of the time loose. Anyone can dispute a charge on their cc, even if there is a no refund policy, for up to 6 months after the transation was made. Like I was saying before, most companies that run cards for services not renedered even if there is a no refund policy in place, end up loosing that sale. I know most peoples bank charge them to dispute a transtion, but if you are really that dissatisfied with the services, in my opinion, it would not hurt to talk to your bank and see what can be done. You probably won’t be able to get all your money back, but you might be able to get some of it back. I have also noticed a couple of people talking about the BBB. The BBB is not always a reliable source to go to. The Attorney General in Conneticut is currently filing a lawsuit against the BBB because alot of businesses are paying the BBB to have a higher rating. So these companies with A+ ratings could actually be horrible companies but are appearing to be reputable due to the money they are forking out. The only way to make a legitimate complaint and actually expect something to be done is thru the Attorney General or the FTC. I hope this information was useful.

    I am a poor college student, but I was so desperate to lose weight that I put out the money to do slim for life. I lost 20 lbs pretty quickly, but then hit a plateu for almost 2 months. Nothing they did helped me lose weight. I was hungry all the time, stressed over how much money I had spent, and had no energy. The second I started eating a little more normal I gained all the weight back plus some. The diet screwed up my metabolism worse than it was before doing the program. There are so many things you are not supposed to eat and if you stray even the slightest then it will throw your weight loss off. There are so many diets that are very similar and promote eating protein with every meal, that do not require you to stop eating everything you love.

    Ohhhhh how I wish I had read all this before just joining S4L only a week and a half ago!!! A co-worker was being successful with it, so I went. After only one week, I’m about to GAG out and am $1,200 poorer. You can only eat so much broiled, boiled, baked protein, NO CHEESE, NO YOGURT, 1/4 c. brown rice! give me a break. From day one, I felt like I was going to puke. The metabolizers make me unable to sleep and I was absolutely blown away by the cost of the product. I went in when there was a “lose all the weight you want for $169″ and of course, that is just the “fee”. Now i have ALOT to lose, but still $600 for “weight loss weeks” and $500 for initial product. I AM SO MAD AT MYSELF – do not want to continue and am out this $. Weight Watchers now looks like the best program in the world – DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY CASES WHERE SOMEONE COULD GET THEIR MONEY BACK?? Also have the embarassing challenge of the person I work with who is continuing and I’m going to look like a complete flake.

    I am a nurse and I am disgusted by Slim4Life (S4L). I had a career before going back to nursing school and gained quite a bit of weight from the inactivity of that desk job (5’2″ @ 175lbs). During nursing school I decided to try out S4L to slim down a bit because I knew I would be on my feet 12hrs per day and needed the stamina. I put out ~$2000 + suppliments onto their “special medical credit card” and was given the list of foods that are allowed and how often. I followed that plan to the letter and lost 25lbs before plateauing and even with their “plateau breakers” could not get past it. Also, they do not want you to exercise while on the program because exercise builds muscle and muscle weighs more than fat… so in essence you don’t lose as fast as they say you will. The part that they forget is that muscle burns more calories than fat does. During this time I was taking my nursing Nutrition class and did the math for the number of calories taken in throughout the day. Get this… the plan really only has you eating 500-800 calories per day + 150cals in supplements. That is at most 950 calories. LISTEN CLOSELY… THE BODY CAN ONLY MAINTAIN ITSELF ON LESS THAN 1200 CALORIES FOR A SHORT TIME BEFORE BEGINNING TO SHUT DOWN. This is the same issue that anorexics have and can lead to multi-system organ failure if continued for long periods of time. I stopped the plan, completely got rid of all of the supplements except for my multivitimin & EFA, continued to drink plenty of water and made sure that I ate between 1200 & 1500 calories. I am down to my goal wt of 115lbs and I feel great. Don’t pay the money for the program, write down your food intake and get out there and excercise. And remember, NO FOOD IS FORBIDDEN IF EATEN IN MODERATION with a healthy diet. By the way, none of the counselors have any kind of healthcare credential. Not one of them that I have questioned in the KC metro area have anything as simple as a Certified Nurses Aid (CNA). They are “taking” manual blood pressures when you come to report in… Who is teaching these things and are they making the numbers up? It is beyond me that they are giving “medical” type of advise, taking blood pressures (which are not the easiest things to do), and supervising people’s diets. Please, don’t waste the money! It’s not worth it!!!

    Got Snookered

    Boy, I wish I had seen this web site before I signed up for Slim4Life in the KC area. Someone I worked with said it worked for them so I tried it. Now, after a little over a week, all I have to show for it is an upset stomach, headaches, and a lighter wallet. I believe the supplements are bothering me, but the counselors say that’s not possible. As far as the diet itself goes, it’s basically a high protein, low carb diet. Get something like the “South Beach Diet” book and go it on your own. It’s cheaper.

    I lost 25 lbs on Slim 4 Life. The plan works if one sticks to it 100% of the time, which in reality can be unrealistic. I didn’t reach the goal weight (10 lbs to go)within the calculated time period and was told that I would have to buy more weight loss weeks. I had to restrain myself from using expletives, thinking to myself after dropping hundreds of dollars, you’re asking me to PAY MORE?!

    I asked what the difference was between stabilization week one and the weight loss weeks were and I was given a sheet of paper. The only difference was adding a little bit of dairy! I told the counselor that I would just ignore the stabilization week one “plan” and continue what I was doing until I reached the goal weight. I then researched protein drinks, bars, and supplements in various stores to identify ones similar to the Slim 4 Life products so I do not have to go back to the center.

    In the beginning, when you are beat up and emotional about your weight, it is touted you will get support from their “counselors”.

    They are just sales people dressed in medical scrubs parroting a script.

    I contacted the headquarters about the medical scrubs garb and they actually said it was because they didn’t want the counselor’s clothes to be a distraction. Ok, why don’t they wear polo shirts with their logo and khaki pants, don’t sit there and “play nurse”.

    While doing the plan did get my weight loss rolling, and my A1C lowered a point within 4 months, I do not like how Slim 4 Life present themselves as “nutrition experts” when they are primarily sales people.

    Thank you all for sharing your comments both good and bad regarding this program. My hair dresser has been on this program for several months and has lost 50 lbs. I was thinking of joining but was worried about side effects of supplements. I wasn’t interested in taking something that would cause short term weightloss and long term health issues (liver issues, heart issues, etc). I know of several people who are dealing with long tterm health issues and one who died as a result of their use of diet pills.

    Erin- I would also be interested in the “instructions” if you are wiling/ able to share. Thank you all again for sharing your stories and information.

    Hi Erin – I noticed that two people have asked you for the paperwork for this diet. Are you sharing the information? I would love to have the list of what foods to eat and what to avoid. I’ve tried several diet plans with very little luck and don’t want to get involved with another one. Thanks a bunch.

    *** DON’T GET FOOLED INTO SLIM 4 LIFE! KEEP YOUR MONEY AND BUY YOURSELF A LOW-FAT COOKBOOK FROM YOUR LOCAL BOOKSTORE!~ ***

    I’ve just signed up with Slim 4 Life a week ago to lose 30 lbs in 14 weeks. Yes, I have six kids so I am allowed a little bit of padding but I wanted to lose that baby weight to look a little more sexy.

    Slim 4 Life has been advertising the heck out of the country radio station that I listened to here in Dallas so I decided to give them a try. They pressured me into buying all of these pills and supplements to lose the weight I wanted. So far, in less than one week, I’ve charged over $1600.00 to my credit card.

    It is non-refundable and you will have to take 15 pills a day, along with supplement bars/food items and caffeine drinks. All of these items have to be purchased from them which is the bulk of the cost.

    I would NEVER recommend them to anyone. The pills make me sick to my stomach and it keeps me up all night. I am literally like a zombie at night time. The first time that I took them pills, it kept me up for almost 60 hours.

    I got so sick I stopped using it for two days. Then I got back on again because they said that I need to do so in order to lose the weight. Now I am so sick, I can’t even go to work! Worse, I’ve gained two more lbs and a big fat headache, physically and financially.

    Any diet system that makes you this sick can not be good for you! For the amount of money that I just threw away, I could have hired a personal trainer at the local fitness center.

    In addition to visiting the so called clinic “sales office” 3 times a week, you have to keep a daily journal of what you eat, what pills you popped down, etc.

    Who has time for all of that? The reason why we gained weight in the first place is because we don’t have time for ourselves. Plus, most of us have to work and they don’t open until 10am so it is inconvenient for us to visit.

    Please consider yourself lucky if you haven’t been conned into this.

    I recently went to the Mesquite, TX location and they did their spill & when I told them it was too expensive they kept up with being so pushy to get money out of me. The add was a lie and all they got out of me was $5 to secure the $498 cost which is not going to happen. So glad I was able to find this site and save a bunch of money. I’m only out $5 no big deal.

    I agree totally with everything you said. I also got sick and my physician wrote a note for me to discontinue the supplements/vitamins, etc. and I asked for a refund of the $290.00 I spent just on the supplements (not including the $565.00 I paid at the “hardsale” sign up). Their policy is absolutely NO REFUND! I hope my experience will be a WARNING to anyone going in for the free consultation. Don’t sign-up without taking the info home and reading every word of it. It is basically a “questionable” company.

I have suffered with constipation and acid reflex about every 4 days and an a upset stomach. They tell me that I need to take my pills and make sure and drink water, eat my vegetables, etc. My heart is racing today and I feel like hell. I am 64 and I know when my body is telling me to stop. I’m glad that I read all of your e-mails. Thank you! I’m planning to sell my pills.

    I’m almost embarrassed to tell this, but I had to rename Slim 4 Life to Hooked 4 Life. I did this program twice over a four year period. I was afraid to stop taking the herbs, and they never stopped selling them to me. I was literally working a part time job to pay for supplements and the program. When I finally woke up, and did some addition, I had spent over $10,000. I was sick when I realized what I had done. I have all the paperwork, instructions, etc., and anyone can do this on their own. I’ve overheard the counselors pressure clients to spend more (they get a commission of course) and still I went back. It works – you lose weight very quickly. Anyone would on a 1,200 calorie a day diet. If for some reason you haven’t joined, consider yourself lucky.

    Approx 2 month ago, I went to the Indep, MO location on the recommendation of my sister who had just started the program there. I went there, saw a woman named Marcia who told me that I was not a good candidate due to some of my health problems and that I would need to get a medical release from my dr. and they would call me it came in. Well, they sent my dr. a release form, she signed and sent it back. I waited for over a month for someone to call me. No one did. Finally, my sister talked with the area supervisor about me, who said my release was never recieved. Phone calls went back and forth between the Indep location, my sister and myself. Finally, the supervisor called me to tell me that they had everything they needed for me to start. Unfortunately, I was scheduled to leave 3 days later to go out of the country, so I made arrangements to come in on June 14th and get started. I came home ill and called on the 14th and rescheduled my appt for the 16th at 1:00 pm. I arrived at the Indep location at 12:49 today, and left at 1:15pm. Marcia had forgotton to write down my appt and the location manager had gone home ill for the day, so there was no one to see me. I was asked if I wanted to reschedule. The answer was no, I did not want to reschedule. Why should I. Slim for Life employee Marcia had dropped the ball several times and I was left out to dry. Why do I want to go somewhere who employs individuals like this and treats individuals like they are second class citizens?

    I have also been to that office and had to deal with Marcia. I was on the program for awhile and found as long as you are giving them money and you aren’t ” to hard to deal with ” you are fine. As soon as there is a problem or a question or you cant afford to keep buying their stuff the turn into very rude people. I would not recommed to anyone. Especially that location

    Our local Christian radio station touts this as a program where you don’t eat out of a box, enjoy real supermarket food as well as eating out — with wonderful counselors and priced under $4 per week for program services. So after months of listening, I made an appointment. The only thing I found consistent with the advertisement was the name of the place.

    HUNDREDS of dollars worth of supplements, herbs, vitamins, caffeine drinks, etc….I told the counselor who I will now refer to as the salesperson that I was unemployed and wanted the most basic program learning correct eating habits. She told me I had to purchase their products or the program would not work. She pressured me to charge it to get the “best deal”. I told her that would not be possible and she then turned completely off. The nice salesperson was gone and Terrible Tina emerged whisking me back to the lobby.

    Over the course of the next few daily visits I realized that for the most part the salespeople didn’t even know the products or their interactions. They pressured me to use things I explained to them in detail were against doctor’s orders due to my medical history and necessary medications. Not one person in the building was medically trained, mind you, but needed to reach a quota on sales of products (they were having contests for sales kind of like the world of Mary Kay!!) — which you had to consume a specific number each day along with a handful of herbal pills, vitamins, fish oil, etc. multiple times each day and then buy more of those. All of which can be purchased for a minimum cost at your local WalMart.

    One counselor was so rude to me during a visit that I did contact the corporate office to relay the embarassing treatment bestowed upon me in front of everyone in the place as she told me I was never going to be able to lose weight because I was not following their regimen of supplemental products instead of eating fresh vegetables. What??

    So I have decided to forego the program route and have just gone to the basics of counting the number of calories I put in my mouth, get myself moving more each day and drinking more water and remembering all these pounds didn’t arrive overnight and won’t disappear overnight. 3 weeks down and weighed in losing a total of 8 pounds so far. Baby steps, I know, but, hey. I am not starving. It is costing me nothing and I feel like I am accomplishing something. I will never recommend Slim4Life to anyone.

    [Reply]

    Good 4 you

    Just wanted to thank you for your insight. I was really leaning on purchasing this because of the same advertising on the radio but now that I ready your post, I have made my decision. I’m going the “real” and healty way of loosing weight. Baby steps will get you a long way with no rude harassing sales reps. Rock on! Good luck

    I really appreciate your sharing the details of your experience. Not sure where you are located, but I was considering doing a consultation with Slim4Life based upon testimonials from a Christian radio DJ in the Dallas area. I have actually been on another weight loss plan for 6 weeks with an actual M.D. and have lost 25.5 lbs (goal is 100), but in this first phase my diet has consisted of 800 cals/day, taking phentermine and getting a weekly B-12/metabolic booster shot, and exercising like crazy. I am fine with what I am doing and feel healthy and get checked out by the doctor weekly, but the Slim4Life ads conveyed that customers were losing faster than me at a lower price, no drugs, and without even having to exercise. I thought “too good to be true”…but since a Christian DJ was one of their testimonials, I kept having nagging thoughts that I ought to check it out. You and the other posts here convinced me otherwise. A million thanks!

    I have three points to connect with some of the other comments: 1) I’ve spent over $700 so far to lose 40 lbs within a short time and have only been able to lose 25 that good in itself but the types of food choices — you can do yourself. 2) For all you go through I have found most of the counselors at the one particular center snarky, insensitive and down right rude. 3)I have developed something like a rasp in my voice that I am almost certain is a result of drinking the boost — I’ve decided not to buy anymore of that stuff.

    What would really be helpful to participants is if the counselors were knowledgeable enough to tell you durng the first session Exactly how the products work and what to expect. Instead they give you the nice spill to get your money, load you up with expensive supps and send you to your grocer to spend even more money on a weekly basis on food. Yeah I brought into it what a lesson to learn. Based on what I’m doing I can do all by myself for a lot less.

    [Reply]

    Kevin

    This is the second time a client has reported the counselors as ‘snarky.’ I also observed this behavior when I was a counselor for this company. Since Most of their employees have AA or BA degrees in fashion merchandising, policie science, or even sociology, they have no core learning in client-based counseling and only pretend to be interested, because their job is to sell weight loss groceries.

    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 80 pounds to loose adn it cost almost $700 for the weeks that I was told I would need to be on the program and the maintance. I will also need to spend about $250 a month on the other vits and bars that they suggest. While this is ALOT of money to me I feel that it beats paying it for percriptions for having high blood pressure, high colest, and heart problems later on if I don’t loose the weight now.

    I started slim4life Dec. 31, 2008 – at that time I was 172 lbs and 5’8 1/2″ – before starting the program I was healthy (liver function test normal) – in this program which I stayed on for a full year I spent probably over $2000 with the initial amt of 550.00 and then the thermoboost powder that goes in the 80 oz of water I was drinking a day along with the thermosnacks that are required in this program. I did loose down to 133 lbs and really maintained at about 139 to 142 as the year finished out (2009) – 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.

    I think that your liver not function normal may have something to do with the pills not the thermoboost. If you look in of the case it says not approved by FDA.

    The only reason it is not approved by the FDA is because the FDA does not work with holistic medicines or practices.

    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.

    S

    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…

    stacie

    I started slim4life in May, 2010 at 184lbs…am now at 145 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 very firmly believe it is a result of all the “herbs” that I spent over $1000 on. Am now in the process of additinal lab work, upper and lower GIs…and just hoping to maintain the weight loss so it isn’t all a waste!
    I definitely wouldn’t do it again without more info on all the pills!!

    I wish I had researched Slim4life more in depth than I did. I went by people raving about loosing weight rapidly, but they did not need to loose as much as I do. I went for one month and lost 11 pounds. Then I had a family member die and had to eat at the church. There was so much salt in the food that I gained. I did the “flush” and lost a pound. I then went on call at the hospital which totally blew my diet. (On call means that you respond ASAP and don’t always have time to prepare a meal. So you eat potluck.) When I returned to Slim4life office I was treated okay and they helped me get back on track. Then my doctor struck. He prescribed me a new medication and felt the herbs would be contraindicated with the med. When I told the center manager my doctor would not let me take the herbs any further, she responded with “You know if you don’t take all the herbs, you void the guarantee.” She was writing that the guarantee was voided as she was telling me the above statement. She was pushing away from the desk, stood up, and asked if there was anything further. I needed more bars, so as she was walking away from me, I tried to tell her I needed more. She turned around and said “What do you want.” I told and she left to get them.

    I did not know I was going to insult her by relaying my doctor’s decision. However, my doctor knows more about drug interactions than she knows, so I have not returned. I have renewed my Weight Watchers membership.

    DOES ANYONE KNOW THE EMAIL ADDRESS FOR THE CORPORATE OFFICE OF SLIM4LIFE?

    Thanks and to anyone considering Slim4life, hope you have a better result than I did.

    [Reply]

    Mrs. Ed

    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. But on the other hand I would like you to know that most Dr’s will lead their patients away from natural herbal supplements, because then there would be no need for the prescriptions and Dr’s. 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. The doctors, and I’m not knocking doctors so don’t get it twisted, but they know patients, most of them, will beleive and do whatever they say no questions asked when some of that is really common sense. 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.

    Somehow you’re misconstruding what her doctor said…please just slooooow down with the conspiracy theory. Her doctor was concerned that mixing the herbal vitamins with the prescription medication would cause an adverse reaction because adverse reactions between medications & supplements are a REAL thing.

    The person that stated the doctors never liked the “natural” way – herbs etc. They are right. I am a certified pharmacy tech and there has been alot of times at my job where a patient would say that they wanted the “Natural” alternative med instead of what the dr wrote. at first we thought they meant the generic.. but they wanted a natural herb and not the pills most doctors push. give me the natural any time

    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 10.00 a pop. I went from 158 to 135 in a short amount of time. Once, I hit 135 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…..

    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 800-1200 calories a day! Why in the would would I give someone $1000 to tell me “hey if you eat very little you will lose weight.” What a joke.

    I spent over 2K on slim for life to lose 30 pounds. That did not include the fortune I spent on buying all the “fresh” or “fresh/frozen” food. I took all the nasty pills and drank the nasty power boost and did the whole thing. I lost about 28 in 12 weeks. I HATED every minute of it!

    It’s been a year and I’ve re-gained “some” of the weight. But I am healthier and happier. I was not obese but took off the weight for vanity.
    Slim 4 Life is not a plan I can “live” with. The foods you can eat will help you lose…but to “live” eating that way would be NO LIFE..at least not for me.

    I’ve recently discovered the Carb Lovers Diet book and researched “Resistant Starch”. I lost 9 lbs in 3 weeks….and I was not hungry.

    So if you can’t live on raw “veggies” (God I hate that word) and Skinless chicken…. Try Carb Lovers. I can eat like a “real” person lots of whole grains and pasta. I’m never hungry and I feel satisfied, plus the food tastes good. Dieting is about Calories in and Calories out….if you hate what you have to eat…it won’t last. I’d never do Slim 4 Life again. Lesson learned. It’s about Money Money Money… cooking, shopping, driving… it takes over your whole life. I was miserable.

    I agree. I only had 18 lbs. to lose. I have been on plan about 6 days and I am out $600 dollars. 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 3-4 months and never felt like this. I have lost maybe 4 lbs. so far and realized today there is no way I can take anymore of the Metabolizer pills they gave me, they make me feel absolutely horrible.

    i have been doing the diet for 5 months. i was really faithful for the first 5 weeks and i lost 30 lbs. i was not faithful for the next 5 and still lost another 10 lbs but i was not eating sweets. 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. has anyone else had that problem??

    [Reply]

    Anonymous

    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

    Anonymous

    where did you go to spend that much money? when i joined, the complete program was only bout $250. as with anything else, slim 4 life is a life changing program. you gotta stick with it or, yes, you will gain the weight back. you need to change your eating habits for life, to stay slim.

    The program cost me $572.00. I agree, this program is too expensive, especially when it’s avertised that for $99.00 you can loose 40 pounds. 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’m going with the omega3 vitamims, and CQ10 now (I noticed that one of the pills contained omega). 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 153 LB. But now she is 116LB 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 was VERY pleased with Slim for Life. Howbeit, I was given a sheet of paper from a co-worker with the foods that I could eat, and I didn’t pay a dime for it. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I was very excited. I highly recommend it. So. . .

    Mercury or anyone that can help –

    My husband and I just had a meeting with Slimgenics (aka”Slim4Life) last week. We were shocked by the sign up fees + the extras that you need to buy! 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??

    Can anyone advise? Will it work without those pills/herbs?

    Thanks for anyones comments!

    cashunda

    Yes you can still lose with out taking the pills, I did the slim 4 life plan and all I took was the shakes, that is what really helps with the weight loss and i would also recommend the efa’s they pull off inches.

    go to GNC or other health foodstore. Find Omega3 and a Carb blocker. follow diet / use low fat dressing or vingerette ( I like raspberry)

    My mom paid for the program and lost about 45 lbs in 4 months. I am on it right now and have lost about 16 lbs in 5 weeks. This is what I eat: 2 eggs & 1 orange for breakfast. Tuna or chicken for lunch, a protein bar (I prefer the Zone bars) and chicken or fish for dinner. The first 3 days are only protein and veggies (no carrots, corn, or peas). Very simple diet to follow. No need to buy pills that “burn” fat. I take a complex B vitamin along w/ fish oil. My husband has lost 20 lbs in 5 weeks.

    Mel

    My mom started this diet a few years ago and lost 45 lbs in about 4 months. The first place you lose it is your stomach which is great but you must follow the program which is fairly simple. My husband and I have been doing the diet for about 5 weeks. I have lost 16 lbs and my husband has lost 20 lbs. My mom gave me the diet plan. Basically the first 3 days are “prep days” in which you only eat protein and veggies. I ate 2 boiled eggs and 1 orange for breakfast. Lunch was tuna, soy burger, or chicken with a salad w/ light or fat free dressing, celery for a snack. Dinner was chicken or fish w/ more veggies. I felt satisfied and lost 5 lbs the first 3 days. After that I added in one starch per day and a protein bar (I prefer the Zone bars-which a counselor told my mom is the same thing as their bars). So for breakfast I still have my 2 eggs and an orange but lunch is usually a sandwich on light bread and some veggies, zone bar for a snack and chicken or fish w/ veggies for dinner. You are not suppose to eat cheese but my husband and I will sometimes eat string cheese as an afternoon snack. Veggies that are off limits are corn, peas, and carrots b/c they are considered a starch. I probably could of lost more over these 5 weeks but I drink beer on the weekends. I also don’t take their supplements, I take a complex b-50 and fish oil. It is a simple plan to follow and it does work. My stomach is flatter now than before I had my daughter in February.

    The 3 day prep is.all.the meat u want with no pork products and raw green veggies win no peas all u want to eat the more meat u eat he more u loose

    Anonymous

    The 3 day prep consists of = eat as much meat as you can every 2 hours, preferably red meat but chicken and fish are ok too, no canned meat because of sodium, and all the green RAW vegetables you can eat. You can also have as much Kraft Fat Free dressing as you want to go with your vegetables and to put on your meat as well. You are basically doing the Atkins diet during your prep phase. Also make sure you drink plenty of water 10-8oz a day. You pee your fat out, that is why it is so important to drink water.

    Try Somersizing- you could drop 20 effortlessly – kindof the same as Slim4life with more choices and variety – can get the book at a bookstore – even the used bookstores have it. You can cook at home or eat out.

    Did they check all the galbladder ducts? If you have a stone in one of the bile ducts it can cause extreme pain. I agree it did sound like gallbladder because when you lose fat at a high rate of speed it gets all clogged up in the gallblader ausing stones. This happened to me and I had mine out also.

    I joined the Slim4Life program in the spring of 2007. I lost 70 pounds quickly and was so happy buying new clothes, etc, wanted to lose 30-50 pounds more. Then I started having regular diarrhea (at times uncontrollable) and excessive gas and could not find relief. Told the counselor and was told that it isn’t the diet or supplements like I had suggested. She suggested I see my doctor. Finally had to stop program because of stomach problems. (I was so weak from the diarrhea that I fainted in the bathroom during the night) Symptoms worsened – In May 2010, GP sent me to a gastroenterologist, then I tested positive for SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth.) Was prescribed 2 antibiotics and problems ceased…..for 3 months…more antibiotics. Problems recurred every 3-4 months. Antibiotics are not helping the same way they had the first time. Tested for gallstones…still seeing the gastroenterologist.. Gas returned in January after only 1 month after antibiotics – so severe that it affects my daily life and routines. Discovered the Acid-Alkaline balance diet and am trying to eat high alkaline foods – helps somewhat. Dr. prescribed another antibiotic which made gas worse. Dr. suggested taking Imodium regularly. Tried Imodium for 2 days this week and gas has been reduced to normal. Today is the most normal day since January 2011. I empathize with those that have had these side effects; and would love to hear from those with similar experiences.

    Antibiotics not only kill bad bacteria, they also kill good bacteria. Add two things [neither of which can possibly harm you]: 1. probiotics [pill you can get at any health food store] and 2. Stomach Formula [made from aloe vera gel]

    d

    I have been on Slim 4 Life for a while now and have lost 25 lb. The pills, boosts, and shakes make me sick with gas and pains every day. But BTW you can NOT lose weight just getting the “eating sheet”. You need to have sometime to report to and get weighed – otherwise you will cheat. I just wouldn’t recommend this program
