SlimFast gives a ‘Booster’ to dieting success with new line of supplements
SlimFast last week introduced four new Boosters, SlimFast-branded diet aid supplements, to perfectly complement the SlimFast Plan.
“The new SlimFast Boosters really help with any diet, not just the SlimFast Plan, especially when food temptations come around,” stated Chris Tisi, CEO SlimFast. “Straying from your diet, which is inevitable, shouldn’t leave you feeling guilty. This just makes it harder to stay on track. Now with SlimFast Boosters, people can feel good about achieving their weight loss goals even if they give in and have some dessert.”
The four new SKUs include Craving Control Gummies Booster, which is available in a mixed berry flavor and helps to satisfy cravings and lose weight faster with green tea and garcinia. Fat Cutter Booster and Carb Cutter Booster are great allies to cheat fats and carbs respectively, without quitting on a weight loss plan. Fat Cutter is ideal for fatty meals, which is especially great when eating out, and during the holiday season. Carb Cutter works by limiting carb and sugar absorption and reducing calorie uptakes and works with all low carb diets.
And the Energy + Metabolism Booster is a great way to kick-start a person's metabolism and burn more calories. This booster helps increase energy with the power of green tea, and helps convert sugar into energy with garcinia cambogia extract.
These new boosters are easy to incorporate into the clinically proven SlimFast Plan – one sensible meal, two SlimFast meal replacements, and three 100-calorie snacks. They can simply be taken in addition to the already easy-to-follow diet plan. Alternatively, SlimFast Boosters can be used as part of an individuals own “DIY” weight loss plan.
Vitamin Packs pitches personalized supplement regimen to Cleveland Clinic conference
Seattle's Vitamin Packs, the next generation personalized vitamin subscription service, showcased its personalized nutrition capabilities at Dr. Michael Roizen's Preventative, Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine Conference. The conference, held in Las Vegas from Dec. 8 -10, is designed for all medical professionals with an interest in applying preventive, lifestyle and integrative medicine approaches into their practice.
"We are thrilled to be in attendance at Cleveland Clinic's medical conference, led by renowned physician Dr. Roizen," stated Jason Brown, CEO Vitamin Packs. "With a focus on preventative and integrative medicine, the conference is a natural fit for Vitamin Packs, as we agree, nutrition is more than a one-size-fits-all approach to health. It's about understanding how your body works, what fuels it for success and how it interacts with prescription medications – all while having the highest levels of transparency available."
Developed in collaboration with Roizen's medical insight, Vitamin Packs' proprietary algorithm uses inputs about lifestyle and nutrition habits while examining more than 650 potential medication interactions to recommend supplements that are personalized for each customer. Vitamin Packs is the only vitamin subscription service that asks about medication use to help identify possible drug nutrient interactions – taking personalization to the next level. While the majority of multi-vitamin supplements deliver the recommended dietary allowance, which is only enough to avoid vitamin deficiencies, Vitamin Packs delivers science-backed therapeutic levels of vitamins and minerals that support optimal health.
"When evaluating holistic health, it is important to consider vitamins and supplements as part of a person's comprehensive nutrition plan, and especially any potential drug-nutrient interactions," commented Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic and Vitamin Packs medical advisory board member. "Personalized, preventative health is at the forefront and we are pleased to have Vitamin Packs present to demonstrate their personalization capabilities with medical professionals attending this year's Integrative Medicine Conference."
