My Slimfast Boosters Natural FAT CUTTER Review
SlimFast Boosters Review
With the new year very close, we look at a fat burner supplement from long standing weight management supplement brand SlimFast to see if we can be one step ahead for 2018.
It is new years eve.
I have woken up after about 8.5 hours sleep to find my cat staring at me. She clearly wants feeding and so do I.
I have just polished off a fried breakfast of beans, bacon and eggs with toast. Obligatory cup of coffee too.
Now, I have literally just put a couple of bottles of prosecco in the fridge for later, but first I need to find some clothes to iron for dinner at 4pm in Harrogate which is a local spa town.
However, quite annoyingly, I have just realized it is a Sunday and I have not hit the gym for a week.
This is not normal for me and I have not been on my bike either.
So, I am quite concerned about the calories I am piling on, yet not utilizing to build muscle or fuel my bike rides to work.
I normally smash about 30 miles a week on my bike and hit the weights often.
This recent incarnation of my regime has been fragmented to say the least…
I am cycling perhaps only for two days per week and my lunch of rice and tuna has dwindled as I have bought sandwiches and I have run out of Instant Knockout.
So, I now need to nail the heavy weights, sort out my lunch and get on the fat cutters again.
In particular, I have a strong interest in this fat cutter, if all is to be believed.
Well, Slimfast say that this supplement is useful to bind fat so you can have the occasional cheat meal such as burger or fries.
Considering this is my favorite food, I am willing to give this a go. If it can also cancel out 10 pints of Guinness plus a few glasses of wine I will give me all for it in return.
TL:DR Video Review
What is SlimFast?
SlimFast is a weight management supplement brand steeped in history and was established back in 1977.
I remember my teacher having a SlimFast shake when I was merely 7 years old.
It is pretty much a household name and has generally leaned to the female spectrum of products.
Guys would not tend to use SlimFast products from what I could remember.
That said, the brand shot to fame because of baseball manager who was challenged to lose weight.
He replaced two meals with a shake, and the SlimFast ideology was to have a shake for breaks, one for lunch then a healthy meal in the evening.
That plan is still in force today, and many people, men and women adhere to it for weight loss.
Of course SlimFast has branched out since the shake plan and now offers a multitude of products aimed at creating a calorie deficit.
Ingredients: The Science
In some parts of the world, SlimFast is a household name which seemed to target ladies, particularly those who had already had children and were looking to regain their figure.
Let’s see what the ingredients can bring to the party and the opinion of science…
Possibly the worlds best known vitamin.
Studies show that those lacking Vitamin C oxidize 30% fat during and after exercise than those with adequate levels.
Therefore, those who do not have enough vitamin C may not be able to lose fat quite as well. 
Some research suggests that combining chitosan with a calorie-restricted diet might result in a small amount of weight loss. 
Up to 3 capsules taken twice daily.
We prefer at least 4 pills spread out across the course of the day to ensure our body has a constant supply of ingredients to process.
If you get too much of certain ingredients, that what the body doesn’t need at the time will be wasted and you will not feel the benefit.
Therefore, if you have a massive dose of Magnesium for instance yet your body is still processing and utilizing Magnesium from a meal you’ve recently had it will only use what is required.
What the body doesn’t require at the time will let it pass. Thus, a higher chance of waste and less benefits.
It is better to have a continued trickle effect.
The daily dose of 1290mg is a fairly low amount overall compared to many fat burners.
In fact, this dose is not particularly good when you consider the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
I think this product is slightly misleading.
Having high levels of vitamin C is clearly useful for fat loss and it seems that Chitosan may help those who have a calorie constricted diet lose a small amount of weight too.
So, how is this a fat binder?
How does it help to take this for the occasions you have a cheat meal? It doesn’t really.
This is not really materializing as the cheat meal buddy supplement we were hoping it would be.
This is not that magic pill we can take to cancel out our sinful burger and fries plus a couple of mimosas.
There’s just the two ingredients here.
Both have their benefits.
However, neither is what is considered a fat burner.
Neither actually help raise the metabolism to burn extra calories than your would normally.
It is also advertised as a companion for those odd times you have a cheat meal.
Realistically, this would have more benefit to be taken daily and consistently, if you were to take it at all, particularly if you were on a calorie constricted diet.
However, the real crux of the issue is that it really lacks further, proven ingredients that are so often found in better fat burners.
As a fat burner, it is not going to be as effective as many of the other products on the market which offer a more complete ingredient profile such as Instant Knockout.
To me, this is just Slimfast’s way of trying to engage in their loyal fan base to buy another product alongside there flapjacks and shakes.
However, I will not be buying it again.
SlimFast Boosters Natural FAT CUTTER Conclusion
This does not offer much as a fat cutter supplement.
There’s just two ingredients, both of which can help lead a healthier lifestyle, yet realistically this is massively lacking.
Both have their benefits according to the studies, yet Chitosan is a bit less conclusive.
However, there’s not other supporting ingredients that would really make this product a game changer.
It is also advertised as a product that you can take to ‘bind to fat’ and act as a product that can serve as a fat blocker for cheat meals.
It does not offer any of those magical benefits.
Then the daily dose is not particularly high when compared to other fat burners, however, the fact that is that there are also other missing key ingredients that would really help with burning more calories.
As a result, there are other products such as those in our top 3 fat burners are more far more attractive propositions which hold no artery risk and are laden with proven ingredients.
