EMC News - How many times have you tried a diet only to fail, gain weight or simply give up? You are not alone.
Deena Stanzel experienced the same frustration over the years when it came to dieting. She wanted to lose weight but found nothing worked long-term. And, she didn't like feeling like she was starving herself.
"I like food. I don't want to live by constantly depriving myself," she told the EMC recently.
While she was searching for a weight loss system that would work for her, she started chatting with a friend on Facebook who announced she had lost nearly 15 pounds on a new regimen that included one "pink drink" a day.
From that conversation, Stanzel soon learned the pink drink was the all-natural product known as Plexus Slim, created by Plexus Worldwide Inc. of Arizona.
"The drink was originally made for diabetics, however the company noticed people started losing weight on this drink. The drink gives you a healthy blood sugar levels, healthy cholesterol and lipid levels. The drink also gives a person the healthy will power over food choices," Stanzel noted. "Your brain really tells you that you don't feel like eating, you don't want junk food when you do eat." The drink is safe for everyone and involves mixing a small packet of crystals into a 10 to 12-ounce glass of water.
"It (drink) fills you up. It takes away your food craving," Stanzel explained.
About a year ago, the company added an accelerator (caffeine) pill to the mix to speed up the weight loss. Like the drink crystals, the caffeine pill is made of all natural products.
Stanzel, who calls Carleton Place home, began the daily regimen of drink and caffeine pill a month ago and has now dropped 20 pounds.
"Some people see results right away, others lose it a little more slowly but consistently," Stanzel remarked. "This isn't designed to take the place of a diet and it can be used alongside your gym workouts." According to the Plexus Slim website, when used as part of a daily hydration regimen, one stick pack per day of the product will promote loss of weight and inches by burning fat and muscle, healthy blood sugar levels, healthy cholesterol and lipid levels, healthy will power over food choices and free radical food scavenging.
The Accelerator pill is designed to act as a companion to the drink and provides, according to the Plexus Slim website, "a healthy way to speed up weight loss and/or break a weight plateau when taking Plexus Slim." Success for Plexus Slim users appears to be linked to the fact the product "harnesses the beneficial essence of two plant extract concentrates" allowing for slimming and beauty benefits.
Impressed with her personal success, Stanzel has become an 'ambassador' for Plexus Slim and sharing the story with as many people as she can. And she is not alone. There are many, many women across Canada and the United States who have taken on the role of sharing the magic of the pink drink.
"This is a too good to be true product but it is a product that works," she stressed. "I want to get the word out to all women, and men too...this is how I got sold on the company." At a cost of $125 per month for both the drink crystals and Accelerator, the product is cheaper than other types of weight-loss regimens, which require special food or extra fees. There are no meetings to attend but the emphasis on eating three good meals a day.
"I'm on the beginning of my journey," Stanzel acknowledged. "It is almost like you have found a hidden secret. I have honestly found something to take my focus off food." By being a Plexus Slim ambassador, Stanzel not only uses the product, she promotes it to others and receives compensation for helping to sell the products. She deals with customers from British Columbia to Ottawa and everywhere in between.
Armed with a four-day supply, I decided to give the product a try. The first morning I drank the drink and took the caffeine pill. I was amazed at how I really did feel full and did not crave food. I ate my regular meals but did not feel the need to eat in between.
This continued over the four days and at the end of my trial, I had lost a pound. While that it not scientific, everything Stanzel spoke to appeared to be true.
"You want to be able to eat, live your life and have it work," Stanzel concluded. "By the time you have reached your goal weight, your eating patterns will have changed."
