Optislim Soups Reviews
If you are stuck in the weight loss rut, it is no easy task to dig yourself out. Chances are you have probably tried various diets, supplements and maybe even liposuction or other weight reduction surgeries.
Even though many of these measures help, they are not the end all solution to your weight loss problems. Optislim offers meal replacement soups that claim to have all the essential nutrients necessary to get you through the day while being low in calories. Let’s take a closer look and see if Optislim will get you out of that weight loss rut.
Optislim is an Australian based company that has formulated a special 3 step program to help you on your weight loss journey. This program can be accomplished with soups, shakes or even meal replacement bars.
In this review we will just focus on the soup. Optislim soups come in three flavors: pumpkin, tomato, and hearty chicken.
The product promises to provide you with all the essential daily vitamins and nutrients to get you through the day. Unfortunately, we were unable to find an ingredient list of any kind anywhere. This leaves us wondering if the product really delivers the vitamins and minerals you need or if it is an all talk, no action claim.
Furthermore, the soups do not contain any fiber, so you must purchase an additional fiber supplement in order to get the fiber to keep your body functioning properly.
Here is a quick rundown of the three step program.
Step 1 is the accelerated program. This is for severely overweight and obese people. On this program you will not get more than 800-900 calories a day, eating a meal replacement for every meal. As mentioned briefly above, these could come from the soups, bars, or shakes to add variety. You should not be on this phase for longer than 2 weeks.
Step 2 is a step down from step 1 and only requires two meal replacements per day, with an additional healthy meal and snacks for the third. Caloric intake should not exceed 1,100 during this phase.
Step 3 is the maintenance phase and it is recommended that you step down to only one meal replacement each day with two additional healthy meals. This, along with proper hydration and exercise will help you maintain your weight once you have reached your goals.
Of course you will lose weight on this program because for the first two steps you are essentially starving your body without even knowing if you are getting essential daily nutrients. However, this type of weight loss can be very dangerous and we suggest talking to a health care professional before starting this program.
Furthermore, it can only be purchased in Australia and the U.K. so it is out of reach for many consumers.
We were not at all impressed by this product. Its lack of listed ingredients and the extremity with which it presents its weight loss plan seem to be a very unhealthy, and unsure way of losing weight and keeping it off. We recommend looking elsewhere before purchasing this product.
