Who is SkinnyMe?

SkinnyMeTM Nutritional Diet Supplements was founded in 2012 as part of a personal journey to lose weight. The founder was frustrated by the wide range of highly priced and largely ineffective weight-loss alternatives that existed in South Africa. It prompted him to conduct studies on the most effective weight-loss solutions that existed globally, leading to the creation of the SkinnyMeTM program. Since then it has been used by thousands of South Africans on their personal weight-loss journeys…creating more beautiful and more confident individuals along the way.

No, the product is not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. If a product curbs the mother’s appetite, it will also curb the unborn baby’s appetite.

Why am I not allowed to use alcohol on the diet?

Choose: Alcohol or weight-loss? It has been proven that your body will not metabolise fat for 48 hours after the consumption of any alcohol beverage. As such, on your weight-loss journey, this can be a major speedbump which we strongly suggest avoiding. If it’s a special occasion though, and you just can’t resist, remember to balance out the next few days to make up for it. Promise yourself that when you reach your goal-weight you can have a massive celebration…alcohol included. Deal?

Will I gain the weight back when I stop the diet?

After reaching your goal weight: Keep eating low carb meals as often as you can. Weigh yourself every few days to see when you start gaining weight (it is much easier to lose 500g than finding out 2 weeks later that you have gained 2kg’s and then try to lose it). If you over-eat today make sure that you eat less or exercise more the following two days. If unhealthy eating is what made you become overweight before, unhealthy eating will do the same now. A diet can bring you to your goal weight but it is your responsibility to keep your body at that weight by making healthy meal choices. Your body, your responsibility. But we’re always here to help!

We also recommend that you try one of our products which are recommended for weight maintenance. This will ensure that you stay in the great shape that you have worked so hard to achieve.

How long should I use these products for?

Individual dosage instructions are shown on each product. As most of these products are natural, prolonged use should not have any side-effects. However, we recommend that you give yourself a breather from the diet plan after 4 months. By then you should have lost a lot of weight and will feel really good about yourself. Remember to re-start with a maintenance product from month 6 again. Don’t want to undo all that hard work now do we!

Why are there so many types of products? Do they do different things?
