Slim in 6 is a diet plan marketed by a company called Beachbody. The plan consists of a weight-reduction program geared to reshape your body within six weeks. The diet combines nutritional adjustment with cardio and resistance exercises. You should consult your physician before embarking on Slim in 6 or any other diet plan.
Debbie Siebers created the Slim in 6 diet plan. According to Beachbody, Siebers is a member of the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and has been working in the fitness industry for more than 20 years. Siebers joined Beachbody in 1999 with the launch of her “Thin Thighs Guaranteed!” video. She has also worked as a trainer at Meridian Sports Club, Powerhouse Gym and Crunch.
According to Beachbody, the plan offers three simple workout DVDs. The first is called “Start it Up,” and involves a 36-minute workout aimed to burn calories and tone your body. The second is called “Ramp it Up.” This workout last for 57 minutes, and Beachbody claims it will help you accelerate calorie burn. The third workout is called “Burn it Up.” This 64-minute workout is aimed at toning and reshaping the body.
Slim in 6 costs three payments of $19.95, plus shipping. In addition to the three workout DVDs, the program includes a training band to help with muscle-toning exercises, an extra 30-minute workout DVD called “Cardio Core” and a six-day diet plan that Beachbody claims will help you lose up to 6 pounds and 6 inches in your first six days.
Beachbody offers a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee with the Slim in 6 weight-loss program. If you are not completely satisfied with your results after six weeks, you can return the product for a full refund, no questions asked. You can keep the free diet plan and resistance band. However, it is not immediately clear exactly what results you should expect within the six-week trial.
According to Diet Spotlight, there are a number of disadvantages to this diet, including: it seems to be designed only for women, it does not include the use of appetite suppressants, it calls for a significantly radical change in lifestyle that might be difficult for some people, results might be slow, and the diet plan offers no fat-burning supplements.
