Full & Slim Drink – Can It Replace a Gastric Band

woman drinking diet drinkFull & Slim is the new diet drink that has been released for 2014 with a media campaign that has appeared in the Daily Mail, Daily Express and several other tabloid style publications.

The editorials suggest that Full and Slim has a similar mechanic of action to a gastric band in so much as it can restrict appetite and cause a feeling of fullness that does not allow any more food to be consumed.

The obvious end result of being full quicker is that calorie consumption is cut meaning a reduction in weight over the short, medium and longer term.

Appetite Suppressants are highly effective – although Full and Slim is receiving media attention it is nothing new. Its main ingredient glucomannan has been in the 5:2 Fast Formula, a supplement that has had universal praise and endorsements from the medical profession. Read more

How Does Full and Slim Work

Konjac root appetite suppressorGastric banding is physical apparatus that fits around a part of the stomach that makes the stomach capacity much less. The problem with gastric banding is that it is obtrusive, expensive and not without considerable dangers.

The makers of Full and Slim on the other hand suggest that can achieve the same result bu using a natural ingredient. This natural ingredient is called Glucomannan (pictured left) a water based dietary fibre that can expand several times its size when it comes into contact with water.

When Glucomannan is introduced to the watery lining of your stomach it expands, this in turn sends a signal to the brain to say that the stomach is full.

Glucomannan – is derived from the Konjac root, a natural plant source that is grown in many areas around the world.

In clinical trials a number of subjects were given 4g of glucomannan each day for just over a month. They recorded a 5.1 % loss in overall body weight, as well as a 5.54% reduction in their BMI (Body Mass Index) and 14% decrease in their cholesterol level.

Is Full And Slim Worth Buying

There is nothing ultimately wrong with Full and Slim (Full&Slim) it has a good main ingredient, it has a reputable company responsible for production and a rather good story.

There are one two caveats though that make it difficult to recommend.

Firstly, there is another ingredient involved (l-carnitine, an amino acid) there is not much in way of research that indicates it ha a relation to the weight loss process.

The second caveat is the price. Full&Slim costs £28.95 for a weeks supply …so a full month equates to well over £100.
