The body stores fat when you eat more food than your body can use for energy. People tend to eat until they feel satisfied because feeling hungry is unpleasant and most have little tolerance for a gnawing feeling in the pit of their stomachs. Typical diet programs all leave you feeling hungry. SlimStyles leaves you feeling satis- fied while cutting back significantly on your food intake. Why? SlimStyles takes advantage of breakthrough discoveries in the science of satiety – the science that seeks to understand all of the factors leading to appetite control, a sense of fullness, and satisfaction after eating.
The most important advantage of SlimStyles over every other diet and weight loss plan comes through the breakthrough product known as PGX (short for PolyGlycopleX®), the key active ingredi- ent in SlimStyles. PGX is the result of many years of intensive clini- cal and laboratory research at a leading Canadian university in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Functional Medicine. PGX is a proprietary complex of highly purified naturally occur- ring water-soluble polysaccharides (plant fibres) that together have highly unique and desirable properties. These fibres are processed using proprietary EnviroSimplex® technology. Added to liquid, PGX absorbs many times its weight in water. Used in a meal replacement shake or drink mix, PGX initially creates a nice smooth texture suitable for a pleasant drink. However, over the next 2 hours PGX continues to thicken and expand as it absorbs water. By taking adequate amounts of liquid with PGX it expands in the stomach and intestines, keeping appetite under control for several hours by providing a sense of fullness. The viscosity (thickness) and expansion achieved by PGX is greater than any other fibre or fibre blend ever studied.
Each serving of this meal replacement has four full grams of PGX, the dose that was found to control appetite and reduce cravings for several hours in the majority of study participants. With higher doses of PGX many overweight people report that PGX reduces appetite so successfully that they consider it “a natural alternative to stomach stapling”.
Besides its amazing volumetric properties, PGX has been studied by world-renowned scientists and found to improve blood sugar regulation and the release of insulin. Most overweight persons have a condition known as insulin resistance, a condition that occurs as insulin begins to work less efficiently with every pound of exces fat. This results in your pancreas having to release exces- sive amounts of insulin after meals to keep you from developing high blood sugar (diabetes). This insulin resistance, along with accompanying elevated insulin levels, contributes to hypoglycemic food cravings, excessive fat storage, elevated risk for the develop- ment of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
SlimStyles does the opposite. By slowing the digestion of starch and the absorption of sugar, hypoglycemic cravings are eliminated, appetite is controlled, efficient fat burning is promoted, insulin sensitivity is restored, and weight loss becomes progressive. As well, levels of other important appetite hormones and choles- terol are normalized while providing healthy fibre for better colon health.
Other diets (such as the Atkins and South Beach diets) attempt to lower insulin levels by severe carbohydrate restriction, which can indeed lower insulin levels, and may result in diminished cravings with more efficient short-term fat burning. However, it is not a healthy long-term weight management solution because most people eventually develop unmanageable carbohydrate cravings, ending up gaining back more weight than they lost. As well, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains all contain valuable nutrients required for a healthy diet.
