FAQs

  • Which ingredients contribute to the sugar/carbohydrate levels in the Celebrity Slim Shake formulation(s)?

    Celebrity Slim's meal replacement products are formulated to comply with a code developed by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ). This code stipulates guidelines on the nutritional content of products labeled as "Meal Replacements" and is designed to ensure that products of this type follow researched best-practices and are fit for their intended purpose (helping people lose weight). The Food Standards Australia New Zealand Meal Replacement Code requires a minimum Energy level of 850kJ per Serve. In order to achieve this, it is important to use Protein, Fat & Low GI Carbohydrates. If we removed a significant % of the Low GI Carbohydrate, we would have to compensate with far higher levels of Fat to achieve the desired level of Energy. We have had feedback from tens of thousands of Australians in the last 8 years stating that they have lost substantial amounts of weight on the Celebrity Slim Program. We have run research studies with well-known Australian and international universities and research institutes and are very confident that our program provides effective weight loss results both in the short and longer term. Celebrity Slim Shakes contain high levels of Skim Milk Powder & Whey Protein Concentrate, which are Dairy Proteins. Both contain a natural level of Lactose (Milk Sugar), which is also a low GI Sugar. Our products all have different formulations, with a range of different nutritional profiles. If you are looking for low carbohydrate and low sugar products, we do offer a Low Carb range and a "Rapid" range that feature much lower levels of carbohydrates in total (including sugars). These products still comply with relevant FSANZ codes. We also have a range of Meal Bars, which feature very low sugar levels (<5g per 100g) and again meet the FSANZ code for meal replacement. Celebrity Slim Shakes do not contain added Sucrose or Glucose, or Artificial Sweeteners. Sucrose & Glucose are high GI Sugars that have a negative impact on blood glucose levels. Celebrity Slim Shakes do contain added Fructose (which is a low GI Sugar) at a level that is well below the allowable daily intake for this Nutrient. Fructose divides opinion in the health arena based on a number of issues, but it is a lower GI form of sugar. This means that it enters the bloodstream more slowly than "normal" sugar. This has a range of benefits, but the main one is that you avoid the energy spikes and food cravings that normally come from eating sugary foods.
  • What about exercise?

    One of the great things about the Celebrity Slim Program is that your results are mainly diet dependent. That is, you don't have to do any real exercise to achieve your goals. The really good news is that if you do combine Celebrity Slim with regular exercise, your rate of fat loss will increase significantly! Not only that, but exercise will also give you a whole range of additional benefits. Now we're not saying you must exercise - just the fact that you are getting down to a healthier weight is fantastic. However we do recommend you consider some reasonable form of regular exercise - it will make your results that much better. So let's assume you decide to start exercising regularly. What should you actually do about it? If you already follow a regular exercise program, this is a good time to review your progress and perhaps re-align it to help ensure you burn off even more fat.
  • Can I use Celebrity Slim if I have a lactose intolerance?

    One of the ingredients in many of our Celebrity Slim shakes, soups and bars is 'skim milk powder' which does contain lactose, so these shakes are not suitable if you have a lactose intolerance. However, we have a range of Dairy Free and Gluten Free Shakes which are suitable for those who have a lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance.
  • Can I use Celebrity Slim if I have Coeliacs Disease?

    Some of the natural flavours used in Celebrity Slim may contain traces of gluten so we would recommend that if you have this condition that our traditional range of products would not be suitable. However, we have a range of Dairy Free and Gluten Free Shakes which are suitable for those who have a lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance.
  • Are Celebrity Slim products gluten free?

    We do have a range of Dairy Free and Gluten Free Shakes. As for our traditional range of shakes, although we do not add gluten to our shakes, the flavours that we use may contain trace amounts of gluten. This may be OK if you are only mildly sensitive to gluten, but may not be OK if you are extremely intolerant (Celiac). If you are unsure, you may like to just buy one single shake to try before committing to a larger pack or tub.
  • Can I use Celebrity Slim if I have diabetes?

    There are two main types of diabetes mellitus: - Type 1 diabetes requiring insulin medication - This type is usually caused by the body's inability to produce the hormone insulin which helps process blood sugars. - Type 2 diabetes also known as adult-onset diabetes - is often the result of lifestyle factors including diet and obesity and involves the body's inability to process blood sugars effectively. RECOMMENDATION Type 1 diabetics should not use Celebrity Slim and should adhere closely to their doctor's dietary recommendations. Type 2 diabetics can often benefit from the Celebrity Slim program but must first receive written clearance from their doctor. Blood sugar levels and medications should be closely monitored and adjusted if necessary while a patient is on the Celebrity Slim program.
  • If I get constipated, what should I do?

    Because the Celebrity Slim Program is a different way of eating, some people can become a bit constipated. If this happens to you, make sure you are drinking at least 2 litres of water and eating at least 4 serves of allowable vegetables per day. You can also try adding some fibre to you shakes and soups if you need to.
  • I am trying to conceive; will using Celebrity Slim affect my chances of conceiving?

    Celebrity Slim is perfectly safe to use whilst you are trying to conceive. In fact, statistics show that losing just 5% of your body weight can significantly improve the chances of conception. You improve your chances of conceiving if you're at, or close to, your healthy weight before you fall pregnant. You can calculate your body mass index (BMI) using our BMI calculator. This will show if you fall within the healthy range. Ideally, your BMI should be between 18.5 and 25 at the beginning of pregnancy.
  • How much weight can I expect to lose on the Celebrity Slim Program?

    It is difficult to predict how much weight each individual can expect to lose, as there are many different variables that can affect the outcome. These variables include your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate), exercise, previous eating habits, and how well you stick to the Program! However, on average our customers lose 1-3kg in the first week and 0.5-1kg per week ongoing. This is a safe and steady rate of weight loss which will ensure you don't put the weight back on later. Some people will achieve much better results than this, whilst some people may find their progress slower. If you are incorporating exercise, you will likely see improved results.
  • Is the Celebrity Slim Weight Loss Program safe for children?

    The Celebrity Slim Program is classified as a formulated dietary food and is designed to be used by people over 16 years of age. Children usually need higher amounts of nutrients than adults to support their growing bodies (e.g. extra calcium for growing bones). If your children require assistance managing their weight, we recommend that you chat to your family doctor.
