What is Slender Wonder?
This is a diet based on kilojoules and an eating program based on the glycaemic index of the food. Together with the Slender Wonder products (shake and tablets) as well as the injections, it is a formula which ‘enables’ the body to make new leptin. Leptin is a hormone which is formed in the fat cells and which regulates the entire adipose metabolism. Someone with lots of leptin can eat any amount of food without putting on weight, but when the leptin levels in the brain fall, appetite and ‘hunger’ increases and the metabolism falls, with the result that everything that they then eat is converted into fat and stored in the body. When this happens, it will make no difference what diet they follow, they will pick up all the weight lost because the leptin levels in the brain are low. Leptin levels are increased with the Slender Wonder program and the patients maintain their weight far easier than with any other program.
The program is based on treating low leptin levels and has four components:
- A low GI diet
- Supplements in the form of capsules,
- A daily meal replacement with a low GI health shake
- Daily injections of a lipotrophic substance (HCG) that releases the abnormal fat in the body.
Why should I do it?
If the program is strictly adhered to patients can lose between 8 and 15 kilograms a month. They generally find it quite easy and feel good with high energy levels. In fact, depressed patients have mood elevation as the Leptin levels “kick in” 10 days into the program. Many of our patients have tried numerous other well-known diets but find this to be the magic one that actually works! Any permanent change in weight must go together with a change in lifestyle.
The most important reason for this is the fact that almost all other programs address only the symptoms and not the real reason for weight gain. Slender Wonder treats the cause, which are low Leptin levels!
