WonderSlim has been around since 2001, and they are located in Wilmington, North Carolina. Their products are ones that are sold exclusively online and are meant to help men and women lose weight. This is done by way of meal replacements in a variety of ways. There are protein bars, soups, shakes, hot beverages, and more, all designed to include the proper ingredients vital for nutrition and weight loss. According to the company, anyone can use WonderSlim effectively to help with weight loss and to keep it off long term.* You will be asked to choose your program (Basic, Core, or Premium) as well as customize what types of foods you want to receive. You are given meal replacement shakes, bars, and a lifestyle guide with each of the programs. To see an example click here. There are two week and four week programs to choose from as well as 4, 5, 0r 7 wonder slim meals to choose from daily depending on if you are doing the Basic (4), Core (5), or Premium (7).
Along with the meal replacements, there is also a place on the WonderSlim website where dieters can find limited assistance with self guidance on diet plans for men, woman, and new moms. Done as a three-phase program ,it is said to help dieters learn to eat better for life.* When calling into their support line 1-800-295-7600 they were more than helpful to answer my questions in a quick fashion. They also have a chat service line I utilized, and also got a quick response with helpful answers to my questions. They are not a Better Business Bureau Certified Company however. As stated on their website their refund policy is as such:
“If you are not happy with any WonderSlim and MommySlim products, simply return any of the following within 60 days of purchase and we’ll give you a 150% refund of your product purchase price excluding shipping charges, or an exchange for product(s) of equal price, no questions asked. International orders may be returned for a refund only. Any unopened, unused box, case, bottle, bag or container of WonderSlim or MommySlim products. Up to 1 (one) partially used box or bottle of an individual WonderSlim or MommySlim product (ie. per flavor, sku).”*
Do Dieters Lose Weight On The WonderSlim Diet?
Because WonderSlim products are lower in calories versus a typical meal that many would eat, some weight loss should be expected, especially in the short term. However, long-term weight loss would be harder to achieve unless a proper exercise regimen is added into the mix. Without it, the body would eventually get used to the calorie-restricted foods and a plateau effect would happen where no more weight loss would occur.* The people who have been on the program have seen goths ups and downs as with a lot of diet programs out there. The results were not stellar, because some people noted the snacks and shakes to taste poorly which can inhibit ones journey of eating/drinking them daily. The one good thing about the program is they are not very long so you can get through it if you absolutely have to.
Is The WonderSlim Diet Easy To Follow?
WonderSlim products are very plentiful and the variety offered is almost overwhelming. The products are said to taste great and do completely substitute for meals throughout the day for some, yet yield opposite results for others. But, for those who like to eat out often, WonderSlim products would not work well. In order for the WonderSlim products to work effectively, they must be used exclusively.* They are rather expensive too, with the basic package coming in at $120.00 for just two weeks. Two weeks is not enough time to see the weight come off long term as a lot of it will be water weight which make this program somewhat expensive from the start.
There are no known side effects that were scary or horrible when looking into the WonderSlim plan which is a positive for people looking to try it out. Just be mindful of their return policy noted above. Regarding scientific evidence about the products, there is not much on their website telling the customer why the formulas and foods are meant to help someone lose weight minus them being lower calorie. As mentioned above, you can really get anything now at the grocery store for low calorie if you try to seek it out.
In addition, there is absolutely no guidance on fitness. This will make it impossible for someone just starting out in fitness to know what type of exercises will best complement the WonderSlim products.
WonderSlim has a great name and a great idea, which is nothing more than to replace high-calorie meals with lower-calorie meals. However, the products are anything but affordable. Some of the higher end packages cost well over $450, and there is not even any mention as to how long such a “kit” would last.
Not to mention, the WonderSlim products are supposed to be used exclusively and indefinitely. However, there are many comparable products that can be bought at your local grocery store for less money, making the WonderSlim products ones that probably won’t live up to their own hype. Do your research before diving into a program such as WonderSlim, as you can save money on products that may be over inflated just because they are trying to sell a diet program.
*Please keep in mind that with any diet or weight loss program, individual results will vary.
