Slimmetry Review - Does This Weight Loss Supplement System Work? Are lack of results and negative side effects deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 09/13/2015 | BY: SUMMER BANKS, SENIOR REVIEWER
Slimmetry 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.
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.
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.
