Certaslim Review – My Husband Tries the Revolutionary Program
My husband wanted to lose a few pounds after indulging over Christmas and New Year so when we were offered the chance to try Certaslim’s two week program he was very happy to give it a go.
Certaslim is a meal replacement diet that gets quick results and offers solutions to fit different lifestyles and goals. There are different phases to choose from depending on your weight loss goals and life. All phases are over 800 kcal per day and use a combination of meal replacements packs and healthy foods.
My husband went for an adapted version of the Flex Phase. This phase offers weight loss at a steady pace and provides flexibility. It’s a high protein, low glycaemic load (GL), thermogenic diet that keeps your blood sugar stable and gives you consistent energy. It’s a good phase to choose if you need to accommodate business meals or family events or travelling.
What my husband did, was to have the Certaslim meals and snacks for his breakfasts, lunches and snacks but he had a regular meal every night. We eat quite healthily during the week and we didn’t adapt our evening meals at all. Certaslim offer advice on what type of evening meals to have for the best result though.
You’re not supposed to drink any alcohol when doing this diet but my husband still allowed himself to have some beers on Friday and Saturday night. Again, if you want faster results, you should follow the Certaslim guide exactly.
The system works by replacing some or all of the meals with healthy meal replacement options that give you 100% of your daily nutritional need. There are lots of different meals, shakes, soups, bars and snacks to choose from so you will not get bored.
The program has been developed by dietitians and nutritionists to get your body to use fat stores as its primary energy source, which is known as ketosis. This results in quick and efficient weight loss that is safe and healthy.
The Certaslim Program was devised to provide you with a solid base of nutrition — the essential protein, vitamins and minerals that you need each day, along with a controlled amount of carbohydrates. Whether you have a sweet tooth or prefer savoury foods, the range has more than 30 products for you to choose from so you will never get bored or go hungry! Depending on which phase you are in, you can eat up to 7 times a day and the whole range is suitable for vegetarians.
“Uniquely, the Certaslim Program recognises that our lives don’t always run to schedule so we’ve made it easy for you to maintain your commitment to losing weight, by allowing you to move between different Phases when your life demands extra flexibility.”
My husband is used to just eating breakfast, lunch and dinner and rarely has snacks but on this diet you eat smaller meals and more frequently. This was not a problem though as the snacks are easy to prepare and eat quickly even if you’re at work. My husband was not hungry on this diet as you eat so frequently.
There were a few things that we wanted to investigate about this program and they were:
- Is it easy to fit into your lifestyle? Yes, since the meals are convenient, they are easy to fit into your lifestyle. Some of the meals take a bit longer to prepare as you have to microwave, then stir, leave to stand, microwave again, stir, leave to stand, etc. quite a few times for some dishes. Others are really simple, like the soups that you just add hot water to and whisk or the snack bars and meal replacement bars that you just eat. You can choose the phase that fits your lifestyle the best.
- Are the meals tasty? The meals and snacks were nice when prepared properly according to instructions.
- Does it work? Yes! My husband lost more weight than he expected.
- Can you be flexible and still get good results? Yes, you can if you follow the guide for the majority of the time and are not trying to lose weight very quickly. My husband was quite flexible in the ways that he had his normal evening meals and had alcohol at the weekend and he still lost more weight than he expected.
After just over 2 weeks doing this diet in a flexible way, my husband lost over 7 pounds! This is a lot since he was not overweight and just wanted to shift a few pounds. He can tell a difference looking at and feeling his body too so he’s very happy with the result. Great results!
