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