The word ‘diet’ isn’t usually associated with flavour, and results quite frequently are limited or temporary. This can leave you in a place of upset and frustration, not knowing how to manage your weight, or where to go for help. Celebrity Slim has provided the weight loss market with a program that focuses on educating the consumer about the weight loss process, while also providing great tasting products to support small or large weight journeys.
What is Celebrity Slim?
Celebrity Slim is a weight management program that’s based on changing your lifestyle around food and nutrition. Although weight loss shakes sometimes get a bad rap for producing results that don’t last (and often using unhealthy ingredients), Celebrity Slim is designed to educate and empower the consumer with the knowledge and tools to lose weight effectively, by understanding exactly how the body burns fat. With this information, you can move forward and manage your own weight long-term.
With no calorie-counting or points system, Celebrity Slim is a program that is designed to be used anywhere, at any time, by incorporating shakes and bars throughout the day. The idea is that you eat 5-6 small meals a day (including snacks) instead of 2-3 large meals. According to the Celebrity Slim website, “the Celebrity Slim Program works by boosting your metabolism to burn more calories”.
Why is eating more, smaller meals effective?
By eating 5-6 small meals a day, you keep your metabolism burning as opposed to when you go five or six hours without food, which switches your metabolism into ‘starvation mode’. Starvation mode does not mean you will burn fat and lose weight – it actually means the opposite. When your body thinks it is starving, it’s actually going to hang onto fat stores for dear life – literally!
The reason for this can be dated back to caveman days, when long periods of time would pass without available food sources. During this time, the body was required to hang onto fat stores in order to survive until the next feast, in which case a rampant appetite would then encourage overeating. Unfortunately for us, this physiological process is wired within us, so fasting for even more than three hours will actually cause your metabolism to slow down, hunger signs to cease and then, when you finally do decide to eat, you can expect some pretty sudden cravings and possible overeating. The Celebrity Slim website explains further:
“After around three hours without eating, your blood sugars begin to drop and will cause you to feel quite hungry. If you have a meal at this point, your rampant appetite means you risk overeating. You may also find you crave something sweet or starchy – that’s your body looking for carbohydrates as a quick fix to restore its blood sugar balance.”
Effective weight management comes down to understanding the simple process behind how the body works and using this knowledge to your advantage so you can take control of your weight.
