The dreaded spread…
Did you find yourself stuffing more than the Christmas turkey this festive season? An extra glass of bubbly to welcome the New Year? Don’t worry because I can assure you that you weren’t the only diet offender these holidays. I mean, who leaves a perfectly roasted potato in the bottom of the pan?
With the New Year upon us it is the perfect opportunity to put the gammon and past behind us and get down to business. A healthy lifestyle change is the only way to make a significant difference in how you look and feel and Slender Wonder is there to help you reach those goals.
Slender Wonder is a Medical Weight loss program helping individuals who are either obese or merely struggling to shed those last 3kgs. Whether you want to lose 5kg or 50kg, Slender Wonder will help you achieve this in a safe and lasting way. This program is scientifically formulated in order to achieve maximum weight loss results in the safest manner as long as you follow the exact program to the T. A cheat here and there will unfortunately set you back to square one. With Slender Wonder, discipline is not negotiable.
The program consists of a daily protein shake that will replace one of your daily meals, daily injections, supplements and, of course, a monitored eating plan to help you make the correct food choices. I will give you a brief breakdown of the products you can normally expect to use.
These insulin-size syringes contain a mixture of Ovidrelle and B-complex B6 and B12. This magical formula, which raises your leptin levels, helps control hunger as well as cravings. Imagine not craving a slice of bread or that sugar in you cuppa! It also helps metabolise fat out of the fat cells so it can be used as energy. Genius!
The keyword here is Leptin.
“Leptin is a circulating protein hormone formed in the fat cells.”
This hormone is responsible for fat breakdown and combustion. In other words if a person’s leptin levels are high, the can eat almost anything and everything and not gain weight. Yes, we envy those high level leptin people! What this also means is that individuals with low leptin levels gain weight very easily. If you feel you are gaining weight by merely smelling chocolate cake then you possibly have low levels of leptin.
“Leptin is mostly lowered by female hormones (e.g. during puberty, contraceptive pill, hysterectomy, HRT) pregnancy, anti-depressants, anxiety and stress, emotional trauma, cortisone therapy and, of course, overeating.”
Daily supplements include:
- Herbaboost – an advanced fat burning formulation
Pyruvite – helps burn sugars and starch converting it into energy, as well as decreasing cravings.
Magnetine – enhances insulin production from the pancreas and the affinity of the receptors to bind insulin.
Omega 3 + 6 – have an array of benefits for overall health
CLA (fat block) – inhibits the body’s mechanism for storing fat and directs the body to burn fat for energy. It also increases lean muscle mass while reducing body fat.
KL Cleanse – a detoxifying syrup which helps the body get rid of free radicles and toxin build up in the liver and kidneys.
It may seem like an already momentous task before you’ve even started but what is great about this program is that you don’t have to be alone in it. Our motivating doctors at The Aesthetics Centre are here to guide you and advise you every step of the way. The entire program will be explained to you in your initial consultation where you can also ask all the questions you need to. A two week follow up appointment will also be specially made for you track your progress and cheer you on in your weight loss success.
The most important thing to remember is that for successful weight-loss you need to have a complete lifestyle change not merely a diet. Slender Wonder is the perfect guide on how to make healthier choices that you can easily adopt into your normal daily life and can be maintained long after your goal weight has been reached. With the help of the Slender Wonder Recipe Book, you can enjoy a variety of flavoursome and easy meals that the entire family can relish too.
Your health is so important and is the one thing all the money in the world cannot buy. Excess weight not only drags you down physically but the effects that it has on your health is even more detrimental. If you are serious this year about finally addressing that stubborn load then consider Slender Wonder, you won’t be disappointed.
