Frequently asked questions

Here to help you are some useful frequently asked questions about the Celebrity Slim diet programme, to help you decide if it might be the right diet for you

Q. How does Celebrity Slim work?

A. Celebrity Slim restricts the amount of carbohydrates and overall kilojoules in your diet, which helps you to burn more fat. Eating smaller meals more often throughout the day also helps to keep your metabolism going - Celebrity Slim aims for five-six smaller meals during the day instead of the usual three main meals. These factors can help you to lose weight effectively.

Q. What if I still feel hungry?

A. Sometimes the feeling of hunger is more a habit rather than your body really needing to eat, but here are some good tips to help stave off those hunger pangs:

  • Drink more water with your meals and snacks
  • Add a small handful of allowed nuts with a glass of water to each snack
  • Cut up allowed vegetables, such as celery, carrots or peppers, into sticks or chunks and keep them in the fridge to snack on when you get hungry.

Q. Who can use the Celebrity Slim diet programme?

A. Celebrity Slim is only designed for people aged 16 years or over.

Q. Can I use Celebrity Slim if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

A. Because the Celebrity Slim programme is based on reducing the amount of kilojoules in your diet, it is not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding as it may not contain enough nutrients to support the needs of both mother and baby.

Q. Can I replace all my meals with the Celebrity Slim shakes to lose weight faster?

A. While meal replacement shakes may help you lose weight quickly in the short term this is not a healthy, balanced way to manage your food for longer than a few days. Celebrity Slim shakes are combined with healthy, balanced meals and snacks to ensure you are having fresh food nutrients every day to help you lose weight steadily and stay healthy.

Q. Is Celebrity Slim safe?

A. Celebrity Slim shakes are a delicious high protein food formulated using a blend of common food ingredients and are safe for use by healthy adults.

Q. How can I stop myself craving foods that aren't good for me?

A. Celebrity Slim will help guide and retrain you on how to select healthy foods as well as how to make changes to your lifestyle so you don't feel like eating unhealthy foods anymore.

Q. Do I need to also do exercise as part of the Celebrity Slim programme?

A. While exercise is not a key part of the Celebrity Slim diet programme, regular exercise is recommended as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Exercising doesn't mean you need to be at the gym every day. It can simply be going out for a brisk walk or making changes to your normal daily routines, for example, taking the stairs instead of the lift or parking 10 minutes from your destination so you walk the final part. If you have a lot of weight to lose, it's a good idea to speak to your doctor before embarking on any exercise programme.

Q. Can I use Celebrity Slim if I have lactose intolerance, have diabetes or if I have Coeliac's disease?

A. As skimmed milk powder, which contains lactose, is one of the ingredients in the Celebrity Slim shakes, these would not be suitable for those with a lactose intolerance.

People with Type 1 diabetes should not use Celebrity Slim and should always ensure they follow their doctor's dietary recommendations.

People with type 2 diabetes can benefit from the Celebrity Slim programme but must always seek medical advice from a doctor, dietician or diabetes nurse first. Always follow your doctor's advice about monitoring blood sugar levels or making changes to the dose of your medication while you are using the Celebrity Slim programme.

Some of the flavourings used in the Celebrity Slim shakes may contain traces of gluten, making it unsuitable for those with Coeliac's disease.
