Honest opinion

Posted: April 28, 2016 in books


I am a couple of stone overweight and have been scouring the Internet for weight loss aids. I’m no good with diets and calorie counting, I have been excercising (I own a cross trainer , rowing machine and sit up equipment) but snacking has been an issue. I settled on Stripfast mainly because it was the cheapest I could find, but also because it has active weight loss ingredients. I was on Slimfast for months but with no effect and it is only a meal replacement substitute. I’ve been using Stripfast for just over a week and have lost 5lb and that is without excercising since I haven’t had the time. It does also take willpower to avoid those tempting snacks, the shakes do fill you up for a while but I think it’s because of my dinner routine which can on occasion be quite late in the day.

I purchased mine on eBay for £20. It comes in a 907g tub but the powder reaches to about the top of the label if not a little bit under so don’t expect it to be full to the top. I’ve only tried two of the flavours and I mix mine with water. The strawberry one is the best, and from the reviews I’ve read, other users tend to agree with that. The vanilla flavour is tolerable but not one that I would buy again. I’m not sure whether it is the quickest or most effective product on the market but I will keep you posted after a month to give a better example. Of course everyone is different but I thought I’d share my journey, it’s always nice to have an honest opinion to give you a better idea of what may work for you 😀

  1. As one who’s been there I get your frustration. But if there were something out there that would actually aid weight loss without negative side effects it would be headline news. I’ve tried many diets – all without success and done a fair bit of research on such claims. They are hogwash. What finally worked for me was finding a Phd. nutritionist ho figured out my specific heath issues and my food sensitivities. Specialists like her are few and far between. She designed a plan for me that allowed me to eat 1800 to 1900 calories a day and lose 50 pounds without feeling deprived or starving. I’ve kept it off for 6 years by avoiding the foods that are inflammatory to my body. It’s individual. There is no “one size fits all”. I don’t know what your financial situation is but if you want I can get you in touch with my nutritionist. She has a waiting period but I know she does occasionally take on clients via Skype – even from other countries. Her advice is all based on real science.

    • Hi Yvonne, my financial situation is very poor lol and my life is currently in total upheaval. I may take you up on that in the future but right now this is really my only hope. Once I get the time to settle into an excercise routine I will hopefully start shedding those pounds. Depression and events around me have sent me in search of comfort food, my weight is usually fine. I’ve always followed a strict excercise routine which kept me at my ideal weight but unfortunately one major event sent me on a downward spiral. The Situation hasn’t improved, but my determination to get out of my current slump is gearing into action. Thank you for your offer and I’m glad you’ve succeeded with your own struggle 😀
