In combination with the recommended dietary advice, the Ultimate Herbal Slim program should help bring you back to your ideal weight. If this is not entirely achieved, then at least you will have made a major step in the right direction. The program can, however, be repeated until you have reached your target. Good multi-vitamin and protein powder supplements will assist, along with regular exercise.
The four stages of the Ultimate Herbal SLIM Program
Stage 1 – Goal Setting
Possibly the most important stage of the program, this is setting your goal to something that is achievable and based on real facts and figures. This is where we get real and also get positive about what we are going to see at the other end of the course.
Stage 2 – Ultimate Nutrition
We investigate the myths and realities of fat, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, live food, the three ultimate nutrients (air, light and water), gluten, refined food, soulfood and balancing a meal. By the end of this stage you will have our basic philosophy on food. This is what makes our program succeed long term.
Stage 3 – Taking the herbs
You have 23 ingredients in four bottles which you will take twice daily over the next 1, 2 or 4 months, depending on which program you choose. In conjunction with the herbs, over the entire course you will have the support of our food suggestions, DVD, books, blogs and other media.
Stage 4 – Food & Shopping
A full shopping list is provided in the instruction book. This makes buying the right things easy and finding foods to cook or eat on the run practical. A long term result is made possible with many realistic and simple food choices provided.
Please use the methods outlined in Stage 1 to set your target and choose from the plan options below.
Rapid Plan – 4 weeks
If your weight loss target is between 20-30lbs (10-15kg) then this is the plan for you. You will probably need to follow a good exercise program along with this plan to achieve your desired result. If you don’t get all the way to your target, then maybe complete two Slim kits back to back doing the steady plan the second time around.
Dose – Take two capsules of each product (total 8 capsules) twice daily, morning and night.
Steady Plan – 8 weeks
If your weight loss target is between 10-20lbs (5-10kg) then this is the plan for you. You will probably need to follow a gentle exercise program along with this plan to achieve your desired result. If you don’t notice weight loss within the first 2-3 weeks then you may need to switch to the rapid plan.
Dose – Take one capsule of each product (total 4 capsules) twice daily, morning and night or ½ hour before food (this will work slightly better).
Long Term Plan – 16 weeks
If your weight loss target is between 5-10lbs (2 ½ – 5 kg) then this is the plan for you. You may not need to follow a gentle exercise program along with this plan, but walking is recommended. If you don’t notice weight loss within the first 8 weeks then you may need to switch to the steady plan.
Dose – Take one capsule of each product (total 4 capsules) once daily in the morning or ½ hour before breakfast (this will work slightly better). REMEMBER – You can switch between plans at any time if you feel the need for faster results.
