FAQs

  • Will I experience gas, headaches or bloating during my first week on the program?

    Any time you make a considerable change to the types of food you're eating, it can result in temporary changes to your bowel movements, while your digestive system adjusts. Healthy foods, like vegetables, generally contain more fibre, which can also assist in more regular bowel movements. After about 2-7 days, your digestive system will have adjusted to your new eating habits. Whatever phase you decide to start on, during the first week your body will be adjusting to less carbohydrates and more protein. After 3-5 days, your stored carbohydrate levels will have dropped considerably and your body will be forced to begin burning mostly fat for energy, which is the result you want. During your first week, there are a few telltale signs that the Celebrity Slim Program is working: 1) Because you're drinking more water, and your body is detoxing from breaking down more fat, you'll probably need to visit the toilet more often. This is a good sign and you must drink at least 2 litres of water a day to assist this process. 2) After a few days you may get a dull headache for a day or two. Don't be concerned, this is your body adjusting to the program, and it's actually a good sign. 3) You may also feel quite lethargic, maybe even a bit achy for a couple of days like you are getting a flu - this is perfectly normal and will pass quickly. 4) After a few days you may get cravings for sweet foods. Resist these by eating your allowable snacks, or anytime free foods; again this is a good sign your carbs are running low and your body is starting to burn more fat. 5) After about a week to 10 days you will be surprised to find your cravings and hunger reduce dramatically and it's far easier to stay on the program - most people also find they have more energy and feel great!
  • 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?
