Slimmetry Review - Does This Weight Loss Supplement System Work? Are lack of results and negative side effects deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.5 / 5.0

slimmetry-product-imageSlimmetry is growing in popularity as a weight loss supplement, so we conducted an in-depth DietSpotlight review, looking at the ingredients, harmful side effects, scientific studies, customer service, and consumer reviews online. We compiled what we found into this easy-to-read report so that you could make an informed decision.

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

What You Need to Know

Slimmetry is a diet supplement designed to lose weight when combined with a low calorie diet and moderate exercise. These tablets are all-natural, and contain ingredients like Green Tea Extract, Yerba Mate Extract, Birch Extract, and more. The product comes in capsule form, and can be easily taken anywhere, making it a convenient diet supplement.

Slimmetry is produced by Amway, which has been around since 1959 and has plenty of experience in the diet industry. We like the all-natural ingredients in Slimmetry, the convenience of diet supplements that come in capsule form, and the affordability of the product, but read on…

Lack of Results – “Little to No Weight Loss”

Slimmetry’s first glaring red flag is the lack of results. Amway is known for offering average quality products at a high price, and has even been subjected to claims that it is a pyramid scheme or MLM ploy to overcharge for products that don’t perform. “Slimmetry is priced high enough to make the consumer believe it will be effective,” said our research editor. “But most customers see little to no weight loss when taking Slimmetry as a diet supplement.” When accompanied with diet and exercise, customers see weight loss, but it’s unclear how much of that is due to the change in lifestyle and how much is due to Slimmetry.

“I saw no weight gain until I started reducing my intake and working out more,” said one user.

“This seems to work, but I’m not burning fat or losing weight unless I’m exercising more than I’m used to,” said another.

Negative Side Effects– Another Concern

In addition to the lack of results, some customers also experienced moderately harmful negative side effects. Some side effects that were seen in over 1% of customers included palpitations, insomnia, headaches, and stomach pain. Customers also reported jitters due to the stimulants found in Slimmetry. “I took this for a month, and the only thing I lost was sleep,” said one online review.

“Stomach pain, headaches, and heart palpitations…I’ll never take Slimmetry again!” said a 1-star review online. Some customers recommended that new users take less than the recommended dosage right off the bat: “I took half of what I was supposed to for the first month, and that seemed to limit the negative side effects.”

According to our researchers and scientific studies, when your diet or exercise program has a particularly troublesome aspect (harmful side effects, slow results, poor taste, expensive, painful workout, etc.) the ability to maintain long-term weight loss is significantly hindered. If Slimmetry really does have harmful side effects that are common, this could be an issue for many potential customers.

The Science

Here at DietSpotlight, one thing that we look for with every new product we research is the scientific research behind a product’s claims. Unfortunately there are no published trials or research leading us to believe that there is anything behind the ingredients in Slimmetry. There have been no clinical studies conducted that have compared Slimmetry’s results to the results of a placebo, and there have been no studies confirming that it is safe and free from harmful long-term side effects. When we see missing or inconclusive research, we see major red flags, so this was a disappointing development for Slimmetry.

The Bottom Line

We like how long the company behind Slimmetry has been around, the convenience of taking the supplement in pill form, and the relatively low cost of this supplement, but the absence of hard evidence that it is an effective weight loss solution is a deal breaker for us. We can’t recommend a product that has claims that aren’t backed up by unbiased research. We’re also concerned about the pyramid scheme complaints about this product, the harmful side effects, and the minimal results that most users seem to experience.

If you’d like to slim down, we suggest a supplement that is not only affordable, but also offers proven results that are backed by unbiased clinical trials.

One of the best products that meets these requirements that we’ve heard about so far in 2015 is called Leptigen. This unique blend of four ingredients has plenty of published research proving that their formula works. Leptigen has significantly outpaced placebos in clinical trials, and users online seem to love it and see consistent results. We’ve also been unable to find any information or studies linking Leptigen to harmful side effects.

For a limited time, the makers of Leptigen are also offering a special trial offer, which leads us to believe that they’re confident that everyone using their product will see quick weight loss results.

Slimmetry is a weight loss supplement manufactured by Amway/Quixtar’s Nutrilite. This weight loss product is designed to help the consumer lose weight in conjunction with a healthy low calorie or low carb diet and moderate exercise program. This product contains all natural ingredients and should have little adverse side effects on the consumer besides the possibility of a jittery feeling due to the increase of caffeine in the body.


Slimmetry contains all natural ingredients. This product by Nutrilite contains: Green Tea Extract, Yerba Mate Extract, Birch Extract, and Coleus Forskohlii Extract.

Product Features

Slimmetry is a weight loss product that claims it can aid in weight loss when combined with a low calorie, or low carb diet and a moderate exercise program. The official website for Slimmetry also suggest taking this product in combination with the companies other weight loss products for the best weight loss results.

Slimmetry contains several ingredients commonly contained in weight loss products. It does not appear to contain any one product known on its own to produce great weight loss success. This weight loss product is missing a strong fat burner to increase weight loss. Slimmetry does contain a number of stimulants which when taken together can cause jitteriness and increased heart rate. Caffeine is found in both Green Tea Extract and Yerba Mate Extract. Green Tea can decrease appetite, but can cause side effects if taken in large doses. The official website does not state how much of each ingredient is included in this weight loss supplement. Yerba Mate Extract is also includes caffeine which can increase the side effects which can potentially occur with a large dose of stimulants, such as caffeine. Birch Extract is commonly used as a diuretic. This should lead consumers to believe that a portion of their weight loss will come from water weight rather than from loss of fat. Coleus Forskohi Extract is a natural herb found to be used in traditional Asian Medicine. This ingredient is used for everything from asthma to erectile dysfunction. This ingredient should be taken with great caution as it can interact with many medicines and other natural ingredients. Slimmetry only contains a few ingredients but the manufacturer does not disclose how much of these ingredients are included in the product. The official website for Slimmetry also does not provide clinical trials to back the claims of their product. The cost of Slimmetry may seem reasonable compared to other weight loss products at $39 for 180 pills, but consumers must take up to 6 pills per day.

    I have been taking the slimmetry for about 1 1/2 weeks and I believe 1 of the side effects is itching. I was going to stop but the itching is not really bad and I am hoping that it will go away. I will finish out the second week and and decide if I will continue using it. I was told that it would not cause any reaction with my taking other medication.

    Ques. Slimmetry sounds like a great n natural product, but what does one do when desired weight is accomplished? Do i jus take carb blocker and continue working out?



    Hello Lacy, congratulations on reaching your weight loss goals. Carb blocker is only for when you have no other choice but to eat a meal high in calories, the carb blocker can help you block up to 500 cal. To maintain your weight loss and high energy is recommended that you take Rhodiola (get yours at Amway.com/casadroca21) also by Nutrilite which helps with many things like stress, low energy, fat burner, depression, to name a few. I’m Adriana and I’m an Independent Bussines Owner for Nutrilite (Amway) and also a life coach if you have any more concerns about about how to maintain your weight loss, to discover more amazing products by Nutrilite or to learn a way to get yours at a discounted price contact me at casadroca21@gmail.com

    I see that you all said that you cannot tell how much of whatever ingredients is in Slimmetry but that is false. If you click on the product and click details it will give you that as well as product comparisons. Slimmetry is a Nutrilite product and that is why it is all natural because you can trace back every component that goes into it back to where it was grown. The instructions also say not to take more than 3 per day so taking more than that would be user error. Any more information can be found on the more info button.

    can take slimmetry with other

    This product does offer an unconditional 180 money back guarantee. As well, it is not intended for a quick fix & no work. It is intended to enhance your lifestyle change for better health. The clinical study shows this, and is included in the package when purchased. I did not verify the validity of the test, but there seems to be no reason to lie, as the weight/fast loss is not extreme, but significant enough to make it worth the purchase. I have not noticed any jittery effects and it makes me more quickly satiated than when I eat and have not taken the supplement.

    I just bought Slimmetry and CLA 500 can i take them both at the same time? Is it safe? I’d greatly appreciate it this is my first time trying and i don’t want to mix them if i shouldn’t

    thanks :)



    Yes, you can take them both at the same time. I’m actually doing that, in addition to Double X, Rhodiola and Glucose Health, and have lost 30 lbs so far. Sensible eating habits as well as moderate exercise (I only do about 30 minutes on my lunch hour) every day and you’re golden!!!

    I think you should go deeper in your research. Cause Nutrilite interests are not to harm nature, and by nature means your body, it’s not right for your health to get a strong appetite suppressant, because this tipe of ingredient can alter your metabolism.
    Besides, a good and healthy fat burner such as CLA 500, can’t be mixed up with the slimmetry’s ingredients to create a pill, therefore we have CLA 500 caps aside the slimmetry’s pill, the best organic, natural fat burner created.
    As a plus, All nutrilite products have a 180 day satisfaction guarantee, if you are not satisfied, you get your money back.
    Go deeper and you’ll get fine info.

    The point of slimmetry is to aid in weight loss, not be a fat burner. Slimmetry helps by increasing metabolism and fat absorbtion for an extra edge on whatever weight loss program you are on. It is all natural, so of course it’s not going to contain harmful thermogenics. If your looking for an easy way out slimmetry is not for you, in fact Nutrilite may not be for you. Nutrilite is a 75 year old, certified organic company, the products they sell are quality, just make sure you understand their purpose before you make assumptions based on a product.


    Deborah McCoy

    This products website does offer specific information that Slymmetry may be used with the other NUTRILITE Supplements designed to promote weight loss such as the NUTRILITE supplements Carb Blocker 2, CLA 500 Glucose Health, and Invisifiber. I purposely did not want a Carb Blocker and am using Slymmetry by itself. I am grateful for having the ability to opt out of the carb blocker. Symmetry has Yerba Mate used to promote a feeling of satiety. And the packaging clearly shows the specific amounts of each ingredient allowing me to regulate how many of the supplements I want to use myself before each meal and at certain times of the day.
