The Power Slim Diet
How does the Power Slim Diet work
The Power Slim Diet is based on replacing meals with protein-rich foods.
This is not a crash diet of less than 1000 calories per day, you're not hungry and because you learn what foods are healthy, you don't have to deal with the yo-yo effect.
The diet is based on changing unhealthy eating diets consisting mainly of sugars and fats with a healthy diet consisting of mostly protein.
With the Power Slim Diet you could achieve a weight loss of 6 to 9 pounds within four weeks!
The Power Slim Diet knows six goals
1. Reducing intake of fats and carbohydrates
2. Extra intake of proteins for maintaining muscle
3. Increasing the metabolism of the body
4. Trimming of the stock of sugar in the body
5. Using fats as energy source
6. More muscle growth by exercising
The base of the Power Slim Diet
The Power Slim Diet was developed by the company Power Plate Netherlands and is based on protein-rich meal substitutes. By eating much proteins, the stomach will be full much longer. This makes you less hungry, which makes you automatically eat less, and sugar intake will decrease.
Your body has only a small supply of sugar stored in muscles and liver. When you do not eat extra sugars for about three days, this stock of sugar will be gone. Your body is then forced to replace sugars with fat and will use fat as a fuel.
Because you are eating lots of proteins during the diet, you prevent muscle breakdown.
The Power Slim Diet consists of three phases
Phase 1, the strict phase
In this phase, you may only use Power Slim products, supplemented with vegetables and lean meats. This phase lasts 2 times 21 days and you must continue until you lost 80 percent of the weight you eventually want to lose.
Phase 2, the transition phase
During this phase, you may use vegetables, lean meats and eat some carbohydrates such as bread and fruit next to Power Slim products. This phase takes at least 52 days and must be continued until you have reached your target weight.
Phase 3, the stabilization phase
During this last phase, no more Power Slim products are used. You have developed a healthy lifestyle with a varied diet. This phase takes at least 10 days, during which your target weight stabilizes.

During the Power Slim Diet for each time of the day, a wide choice of various products is available;

Benefits of the Power Slim Diet
- The diet is easy to maintain, because you’re not hungry.
- Because you consume many proteins, you minimize the amount of muscle loss and your metabolism stays as high as before, which will make you burn more fat.
- The diet is not tasteless, you have lots of meals and flavours to choose from.
- Due to the long phases of the diet you learn to develop a healthy diet, by which your target weight is easier to maintain and you don’t have the yo-yo effect to deal with.
The Power Slim Diet is actually nothing new. There are many diets based on eating lots of proteins and decreasing the carbohydrate and fat intake.
I think protein diets could work, because your stomach will be filled longer (protein digestions start in the stomach), therefore you will eat less other things. If that is less sugar or less fat doesn't really matter, you will consume less calories. In the end this will make you lose weight.
