Slim and Sassy® TrimShake (Chocolate) 700g
dōTERRA Slim & Sassy TrimShake is a convenient and delicious weight management shake mix that provides essential nutrients and 70 calories per serving. Blended with water or nonfat dairy, almond, rice, or soy milk, TrimShake can be used as part of a weight-loss strategy of reducing daily caloric intake and burning fat stores through exercise. Slim & Sassy TrimShake includes the patented weight-loss ingredient EssentraTrim®†, which research has shown to help manage cortisol—a stress hormone associated with fat storage in the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Slim & Sassy TrimShake also includes Solathin®‡, a special protein extract from natural food sources that supports an increased feeling of satiety. Available in natural chocolate and vanilla flavors, TrimShake blends well with water or milk and provides 8 grams of protein per serving.
A lean, trim body composition can often correlate to a healthy lifestyle that includes eating right and staying physically active. Eating right means eating appropriate quantities and eating quality foods that include a healthy ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and minerals. A healthy diet of fresh, whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins provides the body with the resources it needs for energy production, growth, and immune and other metabolic functions.
Too much food can be unhealthy. Fat cells function as the body’s energy storage units. Excess calories not converted to energy or used as building blocks for growth and repair can be converted to lipids and stored in fat cells. When the body has used other more readily available energy stores, fat cells release stored lipids as fuel for energy metabolism. Maintaining a lean body composition requires storing fewer excess calories in fat cells and increasing the release of calories stored in fat cells to be used for energy production. In other words, to keep fit and trim, we need to eat less and exercise more. We also need to eat smarter.
- Provides a convenient, lean alternative for individuals trying to lose fat or maintain a lean body composition through calorie reduction and exercise
- Helps manage the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with the accumulation of fat, particularly around the stomach, hips, and thighs
- May help control stress-induced appetite, overeating, and carbohydrate cravings
- May help support blood sugar levels already in the normal range and enhance energy levels while helping to alleviate fatigue commonly associated with dieting and exercise
Directions for use
Blend one scoop of shake mix in 1/2 cup of almond, rice, or soy milk, or water until smooth and creamy. Also blends well with fruits and vegetables. For unique flavor options, blend one drop of your favorite doTERRA essential oil in shake. Serve chilled.
