Slimful is a diet bar that you’re supposed to eat before meals so that it fills you up and you end up eating less. It’s marketed as a way to decrease your caloric intake and assist you in your dieting efforts. But how well does it actually work?
They say that if you’re trying to diet and lose weight it sounds simple, until you actually try it and realize that it’s not so easy to eat less. The body reacts as if it was starving, and will make you lightheaded, make you crave for all of the wrong foods, and give you strong hunger pains that make you wish that you weren’t on a diet, and could eat whatever you want. This is what causes the majority of diet attempts to fail, because given enough time the body will conquer the mind and force it into eating too much, or too many things that are bad.
The case made by Slimful is that if you simply eat their bar and drink a glass of water with it, it will expand in your stomach and make you feel full. They say it is your weapon against the common pitfalls that trip up most dieters. This include serving yourself too much food to begin with, which leads to eating too much food in one sitting. They also say it puts a stop to reaching for that second helping, and also eating snacks in between meals. If having a sweet dessert is your vice, they say their bar tastes good enough to satisfy those cravings, and you won’t be tempted to eat food late at night either.
They have a national ad campaign running for these bars, so they are definitely building awareness for it. The premise of the ad is simple, it’s just a woman telling you how hard it is to diet and then saying that a Slimful is the answer. It sounds pretty convincing, and no doubt millions of people have tried it after seeing the ad.
We were able to find a 5-pack of Slimful for $9, so the cost is pretty reasonable at less that $2 a bar. If you push it to the max and have three per day, that would represent 90 bars a month, and a cost of $162. That’s kind of pricey, but again that is having it before all three meals. If you have noticed that you only overeat at certain meals, say lunch and dinner, you can cut it down to just 60 bars a month or $108. And if you can just use it to help you through dinner you’d be looking at $54 a month.
You get to be in control over how often you use these, and most of us have come to the point where we know which meals trip us up and cause us to binge or throw us off track on our diet plans. This means with a little trial and error you could figure out what the best meals are for you to use this on, and only take it as needed. It does take a bit of foresight since you are required to take them before the meal.
Diet bars like these have been around for quite some time. For example, the Full Bar has been popular since at least 2008. The concept is the same, the bar is supposed to do the filling up so that you don’t eat as much. It’s the same concept as getting your stomach stapled, with the goal being that you will simply eat less at each meal and the weight should naturally come off. The trick is that the bar can’t add too many calories, or it is self-defeating. At just 90 calories in a Slimful, it seems they’ve cracked the code.
Final Slimful Review
The concept behind Slimful is solid, and if you follow the directions and use this as part of an overall strategy for weight loss, it should provide results. Initial reviews from users show that feedback has been a bit mixed, but that will always be the case on bars like this, since what tastes good to one person might not taste good to another. Also, different people respond differently to it, and there’s no guarantee that they’re following the instructions and eating this at the right time, and drinking the glass of water after.
It’s OK to get assistance when it comes to trying to lose weight and change bad habits. It’s naive to think that you can just undo years of bad eating habits only using the power of will. These are strong embedded habits that you’ve probably been doing for quite some time. What’s so bad about helping yourself out to get to ta new place in your life. You wouldn’t have to eat these forever, just long enough so that you can establish new habits, and then gradually wean yourself off.
