WonderSlim Review - Does This Meal Replacement System Work? Are cost and taste deal breakers?PUBLISHED: 09/08/2015 | BY: SUMMER BANKS, SENIOR REVIEWER
We’ve heard a lot about the “wonderful results” from Wonderslim, so we decided to check it out for ourselves. We took a look at the ingredients, product offerings, side effects, clinical research, and customer-service behind this meal replacement system. We also looked at reviews and comments online and summarized what we found to provide a condensed review.
What You Need to Know
Wonderslim is a meal replacement system where you replace your meals with meals and supplements that they provide. They offer over 70 different meals for you to choose from, with varying ingredients, but the end goal is the same: to provide dieters with portion controlled meals and keep their daily caloric intake limited to 1000 to 1200 calories per day.
Wonderslim was created by parent company Diet Direct in 2001. Their diet program does have some longevity, which is a good sign, but their products are only available directly through their website. Their products do a good job at limiting caloric intake, which does lead to some positive weight loss results, but read on…
Price – “Yee-Ouch”
Most meal replacement programs are expensive, but Wonderslim took that to a whole new level. Because you’re replacing your 3 homemade meals with 4-7 pre-made, portion controlled meals from Wonderslim, the monthly cost rangest from $250 to $400 per month. “Wonderslim has the right idea,” said our research editor “but with it costing up to $400 per month, most dieters won’t be able to experience these weight loss results.”
“$11 per day was their cheapest plan for 7 meals per day, there’s no way I can afford that!” said one user.
“Reduced caloric intake should help lose weight, but how can I afford to add $400 a month to my expense?,” said another.

Taste – Another Concern
According to several reviews online, taste was another negative aspect of this meal replacement system. Customers complained that after just a few days, they got sick of the bland, tasteless foods offered by Wonderslim, and the texture was a deterrent to many as well. “I can’t get past the texture of these products, I don’t think I’ll be able to continue with Wonderslim,” said one review.
“Their food tastes horrible, I didn’t place a second order, even though I did see some weight loss,” said another. Reading through the comments and reviews online, it became apparent that while there were some weight loss benefits, the poor texture and bland taste made sticking with this diet program difficult. “This food is bland without any spices or condiments, but I guess it’s edible,” said one 3-star review.
Our research has shown that diet programs with a difficult or troublesome aspect (cost, poor taste or texture, painful workout, etc.) are less likely to provide dieters with long-term weight loss results that they’re looking for. If Wonderslim really does have a poor taste or texture to many of their customers, it could be difficult for them to lose weight with this product.
The science behind Wonderslim is simple; a lower caloric intake requires your body to start using existing fat stores for energy, causing you to lose weight. Wonderslim’s products do provide that lower caloric intake, but there are many other meal replacement supplements on the market that are more affordable that offer that same results. We’d like to see data confirming that Wonderslim is a higher performing product than similar meal replacement products, but until then, we’ll just assume that Wonderslim is an overpriced way to lose weight because of the lack of scientific data.
The Bottom Line
We were excited to write about Wonderslim because of their realistic results and the benefit of a low-calorie diet. We were excited about the ready to eat meals, the easy to follow diet plan, and the customer testimonials online, but without research proving that Wonderslim performs better than more affordable meal replacement supplements, we can’t recommend this as a weight loss product for our customers. We’re also concerned about the poor taste and texture that many customers complained about, the high cost, and the fact that the ingredients aren’t readily available online.
If you’d like a more affordable way to lose weight, we suggest you find a supplement that offers proven weight loss at an affordable price, and has a formula with ingredients that are supported by unbiased clinical data.
One of the best products so far in 2015 that meets these requirements is a product called Leptigen. This product contains a four-ingredient formula in a proprietary blend that has been featured in multiple scientific studies and double-blind clinical trials and is proven to be a safe and effective way to lose weight. It significantly out-performed a placebo in the latest clinical trial, and customers agree that it provides satisfactory results without any mention of negative side effects.
Also, Leptigen is currently being offered up as a special trial offer, which is a low-risk way to see if Leptigen works for you, and an indication that the makers of Leptigen are confident that you’ll see results with their product.
