I just got this info in the mail about bypass2 slimball and I am very interested in it but cant find any info on it for sure. Just what was sent to me. I dont know if it is true or not or how it will affect your body? I'll keep researching and try to find out suzq1
I am an RN and I too received this information in the mail and am interested. I would be cautious and monitor your blood sugar frequently. I have had people tell me that have had gastric bypass surgery that eating carbohydrates especially sugar made them sleepy. Also medications definately affected them quickly.
I am going to order the product, and will let everyone know how it works.
I just received product and my son brandon is about to try it. He is 24 years old and needs to lose 40 lbs. I am a little skeptical to let him try it with no results as to safety of using bypass2 pills
I phoned the company today (4-8-08) to place an order for the reinforced cure (the between 20 & 39 lbs). The operator first informed me there was a company back order. I was going to place the order anyway even though she couldn't give me a timetable when the backorder would be filled. Then she informed me that there were some info in the advertising material which wasn't clear. Then she informed me that the order I desired was for two week @ 4 pills per day. That I would need to order the strong cure or the four week amount and they would add another bottle, or another week. My body would then be able to adjust. I then asked how much weight could I realisticly loose in the two week with order I was seeking. She informed me that now one can loose 20 - 39 lbs in two week, it wouldn't good for one's health. She then admitted that the best I could do would be 2-3 lbs. So, I went from reading the material which indicates I can loose between 20 and 39 lbs on the reinforced cure to maybe 2-3 lbs on the one which is adverised as good for loosing between 40 and 59 lbs. My few possible pound lose was getting much more expense by the minute. How could I trust even good results after several weeks or months if I couldn't trust what the material implied. That ended our conversation and so I checked it off as another weight loss gimmick. Perhaps it works in the long run, but evidently not as advertised. Hopefully someone else who tries it can prove me wrong
I recently recieved this info. in the mail. It sounded too good to be true, feeling very sceptical I ordered it anyway. I have to say, since I had 75 lbs. to lose I took 6 slimballs every day. I really felt fine but i did not lose any weight. It defenitely curbs your appetite, But did not make me lose 2 lbs. a day or even close to it!
I REALLY tried hard to lose weight, Cut out carbs completely drink loads of water, and exercise.
After all that I lost maybe 5 lbs.
I was wondering , this is the first I have heard of this diet pill, makes me feel like I am living back in the dark ages. I do not spend much time on the computer. Anyway, I typed this bypass2 slimball into the computer and nothing came up. Could someone let me know how I could order this or request information on this product? Thanks so much!
I found a decent review from a trustworthy site (oddly enough they quoted this thread) and they agree that this is most likely a get rich quick scheme. If you want to see something funny check out the picture of where these guys are located
I purchased Slim bypass 2 ball. IT DIDN"T WORK at all ! I returned it on 03/25/08. I still haven"t got my refund. I can't find a number to call. Could you please give the number to me, so that I can call and find out where my refund is.
I just today received my order. I will try for a few days and then return it if there is no results. The customer service phone number is 1-866-494-3792. I hope that helps. Usually anything to good to be true us just that, I should have known better.
Thanks for the #. I called today , they had a hard time finding my return UNTILL I told them I had a UPS receipt where they had signed for it! Guess what my refund is going out in the mail today. I suggest when sending back their products, make sure you get a signed receipt.
It seemed kind of strange to me that a Laboratory would have people send checks or replies to a "real" address instead of a P.O. box, like most regular large companies. So I went into Superpages and looked up the address without the # on end and found that the address is listed as both a UPS store and a Mailbox, Etc. store. That makes this seem a little hinky to me.
Wow! I'm glad I jumped online before I dropped my $100 in the mail. Too bad this does seem too good to be true. I think anyone who wants to loose a few pounds will jump on the thought of this miracle "Slim Ball". I'm definately not ordering it after what I've heard. Thank you all for your insight.
I just received the Bypass2 Slim Ball mailer today and was REALLY tempted, even though I thought most of the before and after pics looked fake - with heads attached to different bodies, for instance. I'm SO glad I found this sight and read all the comments first before wasting my money! Thanks!
I called on the 29th of April to find out why I haven't received my refund. I was told it had went out that day in the mail. I called again today they couldn't find anything until I told them i had a signed receipt for the return item. They couldn't explain why I haven't received the check yet. They suggested I wait a FEW DAYS MORE, then they will reissue me a new check, after I call them again. I hope I get a refund, but doubt it!
I would be more concerned of the company being sued for "fraud" if they have printed material (which I ironically just tore in half and threw into the trash can!) which specifically "guarantees" and "certifies" that a certian amount of weight WILL be lost in a specific amount of time...there is no small-print "individual results may vary" or the "results not typical" disclaimer.....and then try to boost sales by admitting the printed ads are (essentially) bogus.
I, too, was very tempted to hand over my $100 to try something new for weight loss....I'm glad my nosy side tried to get more info first! I've not found a single positive entry from anyone on any site, including from the "European community" in which this product was allegedly Number 1.
When I get one of these "offers" in the mail, like I did yesterday, I always wonder what stupid thing I did at some point to be placed on the "fat cure" mailing lists for the rest of my life.
Here is how I view these miracle cures:
Obesity is a major health issue in the U.S., contributing to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and a host of lesser problems. If someone invented a pill using entirely natural ingredients that was clinically proven to be safe and effective, don't you think the medical community would immediately push the FDA to approve its use? It could then be mass-produced and affordable for all who need it, much as statins are now for controlling cholesterol.
Magazine ads and direct mailings are expensive. If the stuff really worked, word of mouth alone would preclude the need to keep marketing this "cure." I'm going to do what I always do with these mailings -- send it to my state attorney general's consumer fraud office.
Someone must have had a great time using Photoshop to create the before and after pictures. I especially like the one of the guy who not only lost a bunch of weight, but when he did, suddenly he had the sculptured body of Charles Atlas!
Direct Mail and Marketing Services is the actual company name that comes with the address (4600 Lyndale Ave North Minneapolis, Mn.) which slimball was mailed from. (Look it up yourself)
This company makes up the requested advertising and does the mailing for who ever goes to them for the service, This is why we cannot find anything else on this product because their isnt a real company.
I just received my slim ball "junk mail" today 5/28/08. I was so eager to order it, I just picked up the phone and called them, but my husband stopped me mid order. He told me to google the complany. Which I did and got nothing, but a bunch of blogs. From what I can tell they did a mass mailing sometime in April of this year. From all of the blogs I have read, most have received the flyer with in the last 2 months. I'm now glad my husband stopped me. I need to lose about 60 pounds and am always looking for a quick solution. I'm getting ready to try Orovo Detox, from Oprah show, if anyone has info on this drug please post.
I thought about ordering the slim ball but after reading all the comments I'm glad I have decided not to. Sounds like it will be a waste of my money like a lot of the other diet ****. This material will go in the trash. I will keep doing what I have been doing the last two years. Good ole fashion watch what I'm eating. It has taken a while but the pounds are coming off slowly. It has taken 13yrs to lose 100 lbs I have 60 more to go to reach my goal of 130lbs guess it will taken a couple more years.
good luck on the ones that has gotten the slime ball.
losing in tennesse
Thanks so much for everyones openion. When I got my letter about it in the mail today I really tried to talk my husband into letting me do this.He told me to do the reserch. I am so glad I did, I only have the weight to lose, Not the money. If I wanted to do that I'd go to a Casino. Three cheers, we have a great place to get information fast. I'm so tired of getting taken. Thanks again all,
I just received the Slim Ball lose weight mail and it lifted my spirit a bit. I have been unemployed for over 11months, I might just lose my apartment, and I am about 40lbs overweight. My morale is low. This made me feel good..if I lose the weight at least that's one thing I can check off my depressing list. I did the smart thing though, I decided to research this new quick fix. Firstly I googled the doctor's name and then the product...and ran into this blog. Happy I did. Thanks guys for the insight. Unemployed fat girl in Brooklyn.
anybody who wants to find out about all the diet pills, powders, teas, and what not out there can go this web site called
www.weknowdiets.com and find out all the information on weight loss products. hopefully this site will answer some of your questions on weight loss products in the market.
I'm a dummy I guess. It sure sounded good to me. I put a rush on my order too. What do I do if it doesn't work? I should be able to tell in a day so it says. I'm really wondering about how all my other meds will be affected. hmmmmmmmmmm???
I too purchased this product what a dummy I was. They said it was supposed to be a months supply. I got 120 pills for about $100. That is not a month's worth. Sometimes they don't expand and end up flushed away. I had multiple trips to the bathroom and didn't loose a pound. I am 41 and about 50 lbs overweight.
I had started a reduced carb diet a few weeks ago and have lost 7 or 8 lbs doing this plus exercising. I'm 50 years old and have been on dozens of diets in my life. I'm trying to lose about 40 lbs, although could probably stand to lose more if I wanted to be THIN. I too was sceptical but said to my husband-"We spend this much out in one night at a nice restaurant-and it has a money back guarantee" so I sent for it and got it today. I just now thought to look on line to see what I could find and I don't see many encouraging letters. For those of you wondering, the ingrediants listed are 200mg glucomannam (fiber), Green tea ext 66mg, spirulina 60mg, white kidney bean 66 mg, and bladderwrack 45mg (seaweed ext) I'll try it for a week or two and let you know! CMOB
I received the mailing today (6/02/08) and with 80# to lose was very tempted to try it. Then I decided to look online for anyone that has tried it. This is the 4th website I have checked so far and the overwhelming consensus appears to be that it does not work.In fact, I have read over 30 replies and although only about 1/3 of those had actually tried the product only one person had seen results. She a had lost 4# in 2 days. Since she had just started the program, I was not impressed yet. After thinking about it, I concluded that if this product actually did work as advertised it would truly be a miraculous discovery and therefore would have been blasted all over the news and talk show circuit! Good luck to those of you that have ordered it and even better luck to those of you awaiting your refunds. So far I haven't come across anyone that actually had their money refunded to them.
I too received the mailer for several days now. I've googled and read a lot of comments, but still decided to try it out. After all, it says full money back guarantee. I paid with my credit card. If it does not work, I'll call the company and ask for a credit back. If they don't do it, I'll simly call my cc company. However, if this works for me, then I'll be happy I've tried this. If not, all I'll lose is what I paid for shipping. Keep in mind, every result is different. Who knows, this one will work for me?
this might sound good too good to be true and it was, it was a BIG SCAM !!!!!! yeah well i too flet scamed before i'm a mother of 2 kidz and i have to lose about 65 pounds so i tried zantrax what BRITTNEY SPEARS GOT TO LOSE WEIGHT! it sound good and all but when i tried it i found out WHY britney got crazy . This stuff makes you soo dumb in the head you think your so high, crazy drug i think. i took it yestrday at 6 am and today i still feel kinda high off of it !!!!
All of you who, like me, have been on the see-saw of weight gain then diet for years of your life, hope and pray for a product to come along that will make the process easier, succesful. I tried 2 slimballs at lunch and dinner for a few days and not only did I not lose weight, but I retained fluid and became constipated. I put back on 3 pounds although I was feeling more full and eating less. I increased the dosage to 3 slimballs at lunch and dinner. I wonder if it really even contains the ingrediants listed! Still didn't lose a pound after a full week on the product and 40 more pounds to lose. I wish it worked, but it didn't for me. I am planning on returning them by registered mail. Wish me luck getting my money back, and think twice if you were going to try them.
DON'T BE STUPID....THE STUFF IS A SCAM...ITS SO OBVIOUS...JUST READ THE FLYER AND YOU WILL LAUGH YOUR HEAD OFF..."the slimball traps fat like a sponge absorbs water...the fat is extracted from everything you eat"....AND THEN IT SAYS..."your lovehandles and dimplings simply melt away"....DIMPLINGS????? ...IF THE STUFF WERE THAT GOOD OPRAH WOULD HAVE DONE A SHOW AND WOULD HAVE PUT DR DUFRESNE ON THE COVER OF HER MAGAZINE!!!!!!!!!!!
I received the mail yesterday and was stupid enough to actually believe it. I guess I am so desperate that I wanted to believe it. However, before ordering, I decided to read everyone's comments about the product and THANK GOODNESS I did! I just saved myself another dissapoinment and money! I guess when it really comes down to it, the ONLY think that will work is if you are commited to eating right and working out. I know it's hard, but remember the old saying "no pain, no gain"? Well... it's true, and it *****, but that is the reality. I keep looking for a miracle pill when really I already know what I NEED to be doing. Good luck to everyone.
oh my gosh, I feel like a great big knucklehead!!! about 3 weeks ago I mailed away for what I was sure was going to be my miracle. I've been anxiously awaiting by my mailbox every afternoon, and after reading this I hate to think that I'm starting to understand why its not here yet. this was 103.00 that I definatly could not afford to throw away! Oh well, I guess i should have known better.( of course I should have) walks like a duck, talks like a duck, well, most likely its a duck!
I, too, am grateful to have landed on this site before sending in my rush order to Slim Balls. We get blinded because we are so desperate to lose the significant weight most of have to lose--for health, comfort and appearance reasons.
Once I knew it was fraudulent, I read over the material again and could easily see that it was. What they were promising in weight loss in two weeks is just not healthy and likely not possible unless one is fasting.
I would appreciate any info on natural aides to calorie restriction and exercise. I think in many ways exercise is just as if not more important than calorie restriction. It reduces the appetite in most cases, stimulates serotonin and thus a more even, calm pleasurable feeling, and boosts the metabolism if done for long enough and with enough intensity. Lifting weights is supposed to boost metabolism and keep it elevated, too. I'm not sure how it compares with the metabolism boost from high enough intensity/long enough duration aerobic exercise.
i tried this product and its junk!not only did i not lose weight but i gained. i was eatting all the food that i loved because the ad said that you could and your fat will melt away! and i got full fast but that was from all the water i was drinking first.what a waste.i suggest trying phentermine it curbs your appetite and you really have energy and lose weight!
Thanks for all your posts. I was thinking it was way too good to be true, and am glad to have run into this website. I suggest someone who had tried it and felt is was a scam, that they get a lawyer involved and start a class action suit against this "company" (if it even exists). They are taking advantage of people who are trying to lose weight. If it is not working, they are basically stealing. These people need to be held responsible and placed in jail. Call you local district attorney's office or federal prosecutor's office and see if you can get help. At the very least you can stop the mass mailings preying on innocent people. Carpe diem (buyer beware).
i too jus recived my order and i am about to try it so lets see if it works, if it doesn't they will here from my loyer. also they will be reported to all the news stations and make sure they don't even dare to send there mails again. Cause I don't play when it comes to stuff like this. I have sue companyes like this before and they ran out of busness like a blink of an eye. I like to try new things but when they lie about what they sell i get all over there busness and they lose. SO U BETTER WATCH WHAT U ARE SENDING CAUSE IF I GET UR SCAME U ARE IN FOR A RIDE U WISHED U HAVEN'T GOT IN. I don't play around with my health.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
I needed to lose 55 pounds and so I ordered the strong cure, rush order.....HA,HA! I used up 1 1/2 bottles and I GAINED 7 pounds. I put in for my refund and am still waiting to recieve my money back, that was a little over a month ago. Now, not only am I out the money but I recieve at least 2 pamplets a week in the mail about similiar products that guarantee similiar results. WHAT A JOKE! It's probably the exact same scam product only with a different name.
I ordered the product, lost 43 pounds in 7 weeks, look better than I ever did, and I have Slimballs to thank. I still worked out 3 days a week lightly due to back injuries, No sugar/Low calorie/Low fat diet, and lots of water. I did have to watch where I went for a couple of days at first because I needed a bathroom close by. I think that the pill worked as a hunger suppressant but even if thats all it acted as, I was happy with it. I did make sure to eat healthy with all the nutritional factors, and I took vitamins twice daily. So for all of you who weren't satisfied, you should have done it right...It does work. It is still a diet and you cannot eat whatever you want. When you talk about any diet, it is always a lifestyle change. Always. So if you still have the product, do yourself a favor and try it for 2 weeks, fight all the cravings, all the temptations, and just do it. Give yourself an honest chance.
Just read the latest comments and I do have to agree with aubernequine. I have been using the Bypass2 Slimball for 3 months and have lost a total of 53 pounds in 9weeks. It makes a big difference when you do exactly what it tells you to do, and not think that by taking the pill you can do what you want when you want when it comes to food. I can say that I have surpassed the loss that I needed and no longer need my last bottle. It is expensive yes, but well worth it when you follow through and not CHEAT. If anyone is interested, I have put up my last bottle for sale on ebay which is a 2 week trial (30)tablet...Item 250264799414. Let me know how it all works out for you.
i just got mail yesreday about the bypass2 slimball and i am interested but not sure if i want to do it i need to lose atleast 30 -40 pounds i am 27 yrs old with two kids i think i will have my sister try it with me and go from there
Well, the only reason u lost the weight was because u diet and exercise, the Slimball did nuttin. I lost 80 lbs just by dieting and exercising, I have tried every diet aid possible most have very little effect on ur weight loss. so I am sure if you just did the diet and exercise alone you would have acomplished the same results.
I just came across this site about slim ball. Well I am not sure what to really think right now. I would need to see a few more poeple say they lost weight on it before I would order it. But I did go to diffrent web sites like yellowpages.com and whitepages.com I tried the reverse phone # and address. I tried looking it up the name of the company. And I did not find an thing for them. As for those tring to get there money back. Try going to www.BBB.org This is the site for the Better Business Bureau. It might help??? Or at least keep others from the same trouble. I also looked the copmany up on there sight there is no info on European Bypass Slim Ball, it could be do to it just came out. Which means no one has written to them yet about the company.
PLEASE DON"T TRY THIS PRODUCT!! it is a total SCAM!! I called the 1800 number several times trying to get a number to their corporate office and always got the runaround.Then I lied and said I LIVED in Golden Valley Minnesota where they claim to be located and told the rep I would just visit the office myself and she freaked out.BUNCH OF LIARS!! don't send money to these CONARTISTS!!
I know that this statement is going to be a little lenghthy, but it is just and opinion and a little advice after reading all the comments from the Slimball product. I found this website 4 hours too late. I already ordered the Slimball product and placed it on a rush. I would/may have reconsidered it, if finding this first and not called and ordered it, but I have, and now when it arrives I will try it for 30 days. I am an RN and am 100# overweight. I will use my common sense, which any educated person should do and I will eat healthy, but I know I not perfect. I have tried high fiber diets and increased my water content and have lost weight many times, but slowly it comes back, because I know that I did not change my life style for the rest of my life, which common sense and education tell me this is "Why I failed "to keep the weight off. But at this time, I am going to do it permanantly. I, again am in the right frame of mind and am looking for that extra little push (perhaps the Slimball product) to get me through it, to lose the weight and get me started. I have read all the comments and I believe in order to lose weight that there is only one way and one way only to lose weight. The only way, is that people must eat right, shut their mouth (Stop over eating), and get healthy by exercising, even if only a little increase of exercise at a time. This, I know for a fact, is the only way to lose weight and that it is a permanant life style change, but the question is "How do I get to a healthy normal weight?". How do you reach your goal of a healthy weight before your metabolism slows, diabesity sets in ( a new diagnosis: diabetes brought on by obesity >called a slow death that decreases cirrculation and cause slow kindney death if not controlled<), or cardiovascular disease developes, and/or your joints give out and need to be surgically replaced? Everything must be taken into consideration. I will try anything, that might possibly assist me to obtaining a more healthy goal weight, as long as it is not too bad for me. I am willing to take the positive advice here and also, along with the negative advice into consideration and will give it a try. Because I received this info at this website after I had already placed my order of the Slimball product and put a rush on it, I am going to try it and let you all know what happens. I know I will follow the rules, because the next step would need to be gastric bypass surgery and to me that is last chance in life to get healthy and say that I have not failed before I become unhealthy and just when I'm reaching my 40's. So, I am determined to be healthy. I have none of the horrible diseases metioned, yet, and Inever want them, so I guess I am willing with dertermination to succeed with the Slimball product and follow the rules. I know from my cardiovascular RN background that the only way to lose weight and be healthy is #1'Shut Your Mouth', and #2-'Get off Your Butt' and out of the House, this is my last chance per say. Because, when you reach 40 you are on the down hill slide towards death and have lived about half of your life. I have seen all the (mostly) tradgedies of gastric bypass surgery with many horrible outcomes and have seen some (very few) good out comes, as well. But even the good outcomes, unless you're like in your 20's, people just don't look that healthy after losing the weight. Staying in control and on top of your own health issues before you get an illness or disease is the only way to go, and we all know this, so use your common sense. I want to go hiking, sky diving and live an exciting life in my 40's, 50's and 60's. So you should take the advice of auburnequine. She is right and you all know it. You must follow the rules, whether it is with or without Slimball or with something else, and stop looking for that excuse or that weightloss miracle. You are your only miracle, and it's all up to you, so shape up your mind, soul and body. I am going to try auburnequine's advice, as well.
I don't know anything about slim ball except what I have read, but if you really want a safe way to lose weight I suggest you look into lap band surgery. It is very safe and you go home the same day. I have a friend that had this done and has lost 77# since December 18th. It is a little expensive but it truly works.
Thank you, each and everyone...I was about to order this truly unbelievable hope because mine is un-ending....your responses saved me...but I'm thinking that if I take a glass of my morning fiber at lunchtime, & again before bed that it will probably do what the slimball claims...it is maybe possible to take in only the fiber drink for a few days then eat a meal & repeat for a couple of weeks..I'm already grown so I won't be damaging myself...I just might be onto something..(I get really good-quality fiber from Dr Natura)...well, there's only one way to find out....good luck to you....jr
This was one time I decided to check the internet before I was sucked into a dream to lose weight. It took me awhile to find this site and I am so glad I did. I received the junk yesterday and almost called, because it was a dream come true...SIT on my ---, EAT anything, and still lose all the weight I needed to in two months. What a dream. Lose in two months the fat its taken me 5yrs, or longer, to put on. Boy, these people know my number. Thanks to all of you and your healthy advice...maybe now I will get off my --- and do something useful.
Thanks again, Dreamscape
Ok, just like all of you, I received the info in the mail, and also could not find any real info on the web, so I figured that if this is a French product "from Europe" then I should find lots of info on the web there, right???? WRONG!!!!
I searched in French and ended up in a web-site similar to this one and Voila; the same comments and problems were discussed in France as they are here. People not getting their products, not getting their refunds, the product is not working, etcetera. How strange coming from the people in France, n'est pas?
So guess my info is going into the recycle-bin.
WOW - how amazing - all of these emails from all of the people that are struggling with the same experience - being overweight and trying to find a fast, quick cure. I am right there with everyone and am also grateful for reading this before sending for product. I probably have about 3 fiber, fat reducing, weight loss products half used in my stash! I could take any one of them daily and go to the bathroom more then normal, and still not lose any weight from these products.
My twin sister started weight watchers in November 07 and she has lost over 40 pounds - ironically 1-2 pounds a week - and feels and looks fabulous. I have tried weight watchers, and every other weight loss program out there, but until I change my eating habits and exercise more I will continue to be 40 pounds overweight! It's a mental thing and I know exactly what to do and how to do it to lose the weight. I just make wrong choices and continue to hold on to it for now. Every day I struggle, and every day I start over, and every day there is some new gimmick in the mail or on the shelf of a store. I know what will work and I hope that soon I have the courage to take the first step forward and keep putting one step in front of the other to make progress. Thanks everyone for confirming that it hasn't changed and never will!
Funny, I just got the junk mail and decided to google it to see if it was true. HONESTLY - there is no way to lose weight quickly and without hard work (cutting calories and exercising). I say this because I too have at least 10 half-opened bottles of some kind of weight loss product in my cupboard.
Phentermine, by the way can be very dangerous as it works by affecting chemicals in your brain. My doctor gave it to me and I had to stop taking it as it gave me migraines, but if you do take it, make sure you're careful. It does curb your appetite.
I recently have lost about 15 lbs and have another 15 to go with a lot of hard work through a doctor-supervised diet and I've lost only fat (no muscle). I get a B-12 and fat burners shot once a week and get weighed. If I hadn't cheated at least once a week, I would have lost about 3 to 4 lbs a week but because I did I only lost 1 or 2 on those weeks. I am also given hormone creams to curb my appetite and so far the 15 lbs have encouraged me to continue.
I will definitely think twice about putting sweets/fried foods in my mouth ever again and am learning that you really have to change your lifestyle to lose weight.
i just love how these blogs work. think about it. do you really believe that you are getting the true overall of the people who have tried this product???? no likely. more often then not its only the people who want to ***** who go on these sights. for example look how quickly auburnequine and nikki71 and shot down right away about their positive feedback. its a waste of time all around if you refuse to even acknowledge any positive feedback to begin with. just a little food for thought.
Everytime I get an offer like this one I am tempted to purchase it. I saw the photoshoped cut and paist pictures, I saw the phoney looking doctors and the noticed the lack of FDA anything. Most products at least say the FDA hasn't approved them. I am glad I didn't order it after reading what you all had to say. I am also glad I came to this site because it helps me to realize I'm not the only one out there ready and willing to be suckered into a weight loss miricle scam. It makes me feel a lot less of an idiot to see other people try these things to. Thankyou and good luck
I did finally get my refund, just FYi. I'll keep at it by reducing carbs and total calories and increasing excercise-tried and true, hard work but I'm down 12 lbs this way. Good luck to all my fat-fighting sisters out there!
Hi there ya'll! I tried this product, ate coffe cup sized plates of 300-400 calorie meals 3 to 4 times a day, exercised 3 times a week and lost less weight than I have on average per week by plain ol diet and exercise alone. Quite honestly, I was NOT even going to the bathroom MORE often as it said! Very dissappointed. I didn't expect miracles like it stated, but I figured if it helped to add a few more pounds a week, it would be worth it for me. As I said before, VERY DISSAPPOINTED. Oh well, I know how to do it the hard way since I'm now down 43lbs since February, so I guess I'll just keep trucking along slowly but surely. Good luck to ya'll, and if this product works for you GREAT! *_* Best wishes!
I'm new here to the circuit-and I'm 33 yrs old and I'm considering the slimball product.I've been reading the comments-and I have a question for auberque-I think that's the name. It's great that you lost the weight-but where's the proof. I mean there's no before and after pics-your pics are blank. Although I do agree-about taking the product properly and giving it a chance. I just don't believe your claim-so I'm gonna do this. I'm going to get the product-try it-and every two week I'm gonna keep everyone posted of my progress WITH PHOTOS! I have a youtube account-when I get it I'll let you know-because I'm going to chronicle this product. I have a substantial amount of weight to lose- 100 ibs. I'm a big guy 315ilbs approx.5'6 but athlete-so I think I'm a good candidate. I'll try anything once! I figure this it it'll take the guess work out of everything for everybody. What do you guys think about that!
I'm so glad I found this information. I have received the mailer 2 weeks ago, and I was so happy because 3 of my relatives were going to try it with me and sorprise, a lot of the reasons to byu it, were your reasons and conclusions, and all your conserns were also mine. Doing a research I coul'nt find any info or a web page for this company, and it amaze me because if this is such a good inovative product why this compny does not even have a web page and is not known in the market or medical field. Thanks so much for posting your experiences. This blog is really helpful. You save the 4 of us a great deal of time and money. Thanks again:)
Almost was going to be suckered into buying it, but did finally come to my senses. We all want to lose weight, and not have to "Give" up anything. We don't want it to be hard either. Easy is always best. Right? We wish someone could just way a magic wand over our heads and we'd all be the weight we wanted to be. OR just give us that magic pill that will do it for us. But come on people, ( and I'm also in the same boat) there is no mircle drug, we need to just be assertive, we are responsible for what we put in our bodies. We need to make decent choices and get back to decent portion's. We need to say NO to Mcdonalds, and other fast food, and if we want a piece of pizza we need to limit ourselves to that one piece. It's us guys. WE need to do it ourselves. We need to make right choices. Just plain common sense. Good luck all in the venture of losing weight. Also in closing, when you do it yourself, you get to take all the credit. I did it when I quit smoking, I know I can do it with weight loss. Are you with me?
Thank you to CMOB (6/2) for posting the ingredients. I guess I threw this mailing on a pile of junk mail a while ago and came across it again today; I just read through the info & "googled" it to see if I could at least find the ingredients, because the claim of absorbing fat sounds like chitosan (which can be BAD for people with shellfish allergies!!!). I have learned never to buy anything without researching the individual ingredients. Incidentally, have you ever noticed how most weight-loss products claim "the INGREDIENTS in Blahblahblah have been proven to reduce appetite/absorb fat/etc." The product itself hasn't undergone any clinical trials, and usually the ingredients aren't in the doses that resulted in weight loss in the studies. Any product that doesn't PROUDLY list its ingredients is immediately suspect in my book! And any product that claims to "absorb" anything (sugar, fat, toxins, etc) should be approached very, very cautiously by anyone with medical conditions, and/or taken 2 hours before/2 hours after eating, taking vitamins, medication, birth control, etc, so they don't absorb and "flush out" all your nutrients & meds!
The main ingredient, glucomannan, is a very cheap fiber. I bought a bottle of 360 pills, 2g per 3 pills, for $20. Even taking 3 servings per day, this would last 40 days. The white kidney bean extract is in every carb-blocker ($24 for a 40-day supply). I have read several articles about bladderwrack (the extract is sometimes sold as "fucoxanthin") and while it didn't work for me when I tried it about a year ago, since it's seaweed perhaps it contains iodine, which supports thyroid & metabolic function ($20 for a 40-day supply). Spirulina is a great energy & detox nutrient ($14 for 360 tabs), but must be taken in rather large doses to feel the benefits (think of it as a protein supplement), and should be handled carefully to ensure high quality. And I won't even go into green tea; we've all heard about that ad nauseum. My prices are based on what I buy from vitacost.com (and no, I don't work for them, and I'm not recommending any certain brand), but you could get these items from GNC or your local health food store or wherever you like to buy your supplements. The above comes to $78 (excluding green tea) for a 40-day supply of 3 large, high-quality doses per day of all the individual ingredients; the company I buy from has a 30-day UNCONDITIONAL money-back guarantee, live chat support, unbiased customer reviews, and 24-hour customer service.
On the other hand, to pretty much the same effect as the "SlimBall" claims, you could buy some super-cheap psyllium or Metamucil at your grocery store, and take a spoonful in a large glass of water 20-30 minutes before eating. Some diets suggest eating an apple or a small serving of nuts or a cup of broth or a pickle 20-30 minutes before eating...I think any of these "tricks" will help you eat less, and perhaps aid digestion, which will ultimately help you lose weight too.
Ladies, I'm not criticizing anyone here, as I have fallen for a couple of scams too. But what I have learned is, it's usually cheaper and safer to buy the individual ingredients myself, and gauge my reaction to each supplement rather than to a "formula," and to buy from a company that I trust and can easily get in touch with or drive to!
I RECIEVED MY SHIPMENT LAST WEEK YOU HAVE TO USE THIS PILL AS A TOOL NOT A MIRACLE WORKER I HAVE LOST 8 POUNDS IN 6 DAYS. YOU STILL NEED TO WATCH WHAT GOES IN YOUR MOUTH BUT YES YOU WILL FILL FULL I ONLY TAKE THEM BEFORE BREAKFAST AND BEFORE SUPPER NONE DURING THE DAY AND I AM SATISFIED I DONT FEEL HUNGRY AND NEXT WEEK I AM GOING TO TRY AND DOUBLE IT BY PUTTING EXCERSIE IN THE PLAN.

I to recieved the flyer , I am needing to loose 50lbs myself in a short period of time I thought this would be the best way to do it, after reading up on slimballs I believe its a huge scam. I heard of the tony horton 10 min work out and vitamins that come with it, I purchased and recieved the workout plan, now for someone like myself who never works out , I found this the easiest, safest and best way to loose weight if we incorporate the viamins and minerals ,prepare the suggested meals that come with this program then weight loss is a breeze, SLIMBALS IS A SCAM, TRY THE 10 MIN WORKOUT IT WORKS.
hey guys I ordered the slimball and I should get it some time this week.. I NEED to loose about 30 + lbs and I'm diabetic..... so we will see what happens. I know there are alot of bad reviews but like complaments... bad ones stick better then good ones... your more likly to see a bad review about anything rather then a good one. The way I see it is the people that it did work for ( if it did) are to busy buying smaller cloths to get on this sight and tell you how good it works, if it does.. so thats what I'm hoping for. but eather way I will get back to ya when I start it :)
I just got this SCAM in the mail today, after reading it then reading online about it, what a joke they should be sued for false advertising.I have tried something else that DOES WORK. I tried it when I was about 15 just out of curiosity because my friends mom had it, and it taste good and I lost 10 ponds in a week. I now am 32 with 2 kids, couldn't find this product for years until a year ago I found it online hoping it worked like it did then.Anyway I ordered it and lost 6 and1/2 pounds in a week and I cheated quite a bit with food.It's called ONE DAY DIET.they are wafers (chocolate or vanilla) IE: Odd days of the month you eat 20 wafers a day Even days of the month you eat WHATEVER YOU WANT and if the wafers dont fill you completely on your "diet Days" you can have fresh or steamed vegies,some fruit,and fish.I like it not only because it really truly worked but because I love food and hate diets.but you only diet EVERY OTHER DAY and I cheated ALOT, I couldn't watch my family eat a good diner on my diet days and not eat with them,I tried to eat less than normal on those days but I didn't follow the directions completely.and I don't exercise.I'm about 140 and want to be 115-120 I'm not fat but have the baby belly and love handles, (that every mom hates) I feel I could lose some pounds.I'm a VERY skeptical person when it comes to anyone trying to sell me anything or commercials.I don't tell people about things unless Ive experienced it or read a lot about it and I either hate it and it's a bunch of **** or it works and I love it.this happened to be a diet I tried and it worked.I was hoping to lose a couple of pounds and thought well they probably dont make this stuff like they used to,it may not do what it did when I was 15, but it did.I need to get back on it, I lost the 6 and 1/2pounds and quit for a while due to a family death. But I'm Getting back on it now that things have passed.Anyway Try it no matter how much you want to lose it works and its good and easy.Please let me know if anyone here tries it I'd like to know how you feel about it.thanks for reading my long comment. feel free to email me ***@**** Good luck everyone. Make sure you always research anything like this SLIM BALL diet scam before you lose your money ant thats all you'll lose.
I received ad in mail. Its 9/2/08. I am a RN and I almost got suckered. Im glad I read the testimonies. I will not waste my time or money on this product. Besides, they wouldnt know what they had coming if I didnt receive my money back!!lol. But anyway, for those interested- adipex 37.5 (phentermine generic name) works well. Its an apetite suppressant that you have to be prescribed. I took it for a while and it worked for me. The main reason that I didnt continue on this regimen is because my physician would have to prescribe which she wouldnt be continuously willing to do. This med does cause b/p and heartrate to increase. Therefore, labwork and ekg are recommended and most cases required....but it works..I guess I will go back to that.
I have been on slim ball for about 2 days now and lost about 4 lbs. it works as it says it does but one thing I noticed is that after you take the suplement a few hours later your scale says your 20 lbsheaver! I though to my self there is no way in hell I gained 20 lbs. and then after the 6 hour mark and it wore off I weighd my self and I went down 20 again ... strange.. at first I freeked out when It said I was 20 heaver.lol I guess when it swells in your stomache it gets hella heavy? but im not hungry and not tired at all . wich is what I was worried about. and being diabetic I take my meds with breakfast and skip my pill at lunch time because it lowers my suger to low. so the slim ball is regulating my blood suger when I take it . kinda cool. Ive been keeping a close eye on my blood suger .
the only thing that ***** so far about the slim ball is that when it wears off your so dang hungry! so I take it wate 15 min and eat 4 or so bites and I'm good again. I'll continue to keep in touch
My boyfriend and I got the slimBall papers in the mail the other day and we talked about it and we have decide to order the most expense package that they have so we can split it and take the slimBall product together!! My boyfriend is about 40lbs over weight and I am 40lbs over weight as well! I order the product today and the product should be here first thing next week by UPS!! My boyfriend gets on the computer 2nite and comes across this website! I sure hope this **** works!! We will be sure to post what happens to both us every week!! We are going to try it for 3 weeks!! So we both have are fingers crossed!! We will keep you all posted!!
I have been on slimball for.... 6 days now and Ive lost about 12 and a half lbs. it works good. I find that even at breakfast when I dont take it ( only take at linch and dinner) I'm eating less as well and being full. so far I'm liking it . so I'm glad I ordered even though there has been some bad reviews. hell it works for me and nothing else has. :)
I'll continue to keep you all posted.
Hubby & I team truck drive and both have weight to lose. About 60-70 #s for me and about 120 for him. I'm wondering if the diet part of this is even doable from the confines of a semi. Also am curious as to whether or not the excercise required would be comparable to walking our puppy every 2-3 hours or bouncing for a couple of minutes on the mini-rebounder. We're thinking about making the investment. We may read further about the testimonials first though!
Well we order the SlimBall and WE NEVER GOT IT!!!! It has been over a week now and I payed for fast shipping and still never got here!!! So i called Wednesday Sept 10 and asked for my money back and the lady told me it would be Fully refunded on Friday!!! SO the money WAS refund back into my back this morning...Thank you God!!!! Well if I do ever get it in the mail....I will let you know what happens!!!
Wish I would have seen this site last April. When I called to order the SlimBall product I asked how they could say they had a 87% success rate of weight loss? He said they went by how many people returned the product because they were dissatisfied with it - so only 13% returned it for thier money back and that is what they call SUCCESS.
I ordered it for my mother. She took it for a few weeks but said she felt nothing. I then took it for a few weeks hoping it work but felt nothing - did not feel full after taking 3 pills at a time.
Unfortunatly we didn't pay attention to date of delivery and more than 30-days past. We didn't try to get our money back but I am sure European Labs considers us a "Success Story" but there was no weight loss at all, the product did not perform as advertised.
Michelle & Mom 9/13/08
I ordered the SlimBall today, as well. I am looking forward to at least trying it, and taking the advice of a previous poster, I am trying it for the 2 solid weeks, and I have every intention of follwoing it correctly, eating right and fighting bad cravings, etc. I will update when I receive my order, and update 2 weeks folowing with results.
I was talking on the phone with one of the associates and they said they dont have it being advertise on tv/website is so they keep the cost down. Also, the associate said that they wouldn't be able to talk to many customers one on one about their product. An recorded machine would be answering your questions. They want to get a certain amount of sales before they advertise it on tv,etc.
I order this product for my mother, and have used it myself as well (I am currently exercising regularly and don't eat a lot of junk). I (and my mother who has fibromyalgia and is rather sedentary) have had a very good experience with this product. It really does seem to help. I really do recommend the product.
HOWEVER...their ordering service is the worst. They never seem to have a history of my orders. I have to repeat everything, every time, and listen to 5 minutes of upselling of other products (today I stopped the guy - who wants to hear that every time). My last experience was this...I placed an order on Sept. 16th for 8 bottles, and put a rush on the shipment (3-5 days, extra 6 bux). Two weeks later - no shipment, and they never charged me. I called to inquire, and was told my order was voided because I am only allowed to order 4 bottles in one shipment, and I should try it first to see if it works then I can order again, blah blah... !!!?? No consequence that I have already ordered twice? Nobody ever called to tell me they voided my order. I re-placed the order today. I had to place two completely separate orders, each time repeating all of my information, and listening to all the upselling b.s. about other products. Its a good product - but every time you order it will take about a 15 minute phone call. Why is this in the age of the internet? And the comment above about not using the internet keeps their costs down?? Nah...that's a joke. This low-brow used-car-salesman ordering service is going to kill their business.
Anyway. Great product - but if you want to actually use it on a regular basis - be prepared to go through this very annoying and time consuming backwards process of simply trying to place an order.
I'm a skeptical person when it comes to these things. Sadly there are more get-rich-quick scams than honest products out there these days. But I do want to lose weight and the more I try the more frustrated and depressed I get. So I bit the bullet and will try it for a month. It did cost more than I thought looking at the brochures. They're deceiving I think. In any case I want to lose and, more importantly, keep off 20 #. I will let you all know how it goes.
Well i have been taking slimball for about 1 week, i have been taking it as directed, 15 minutes before lunch, and 15 minutes before dinner. I have eaten less at those meal times, and i feel really full, twice i have thrown up because i was miserable full. i dont weigh mysell every day but i can tell you i am feeling thinner every day. I have invested over a $100.00 dallors, and have made a comitment to myself for at least a month, mentally i have the urge to eat less, and eat healthier food, by next week i will start walking about 20 minutes every other day. As with any diet, scam or not, i say what ever it takes to motivate yourself, the mind is a powerfull thing, I dont know about you guys but being overweight for me has some self asteem issues attached to it. I am sick and tired of bulges, and being fat. this little slimball i take twice a day and my investment has certainly motivated me to keep going and keep trying to loose this wieght.
I received the 30 day offer yesterday and was planning to order it. Now that I have read all of these reviews I'm so confused I don't know if I want to or not. I guess I'll keep checking for updates to see how ya'll like it, so please keep posting your results!
I also recieved the slim ball letter just 3 days ago and I decided to do a little research but I had no luck.I have tried several weight loss pills and yes they did work but only for 2-3 months and I would always gain the weight back. A year ago a friend from Boston told me about a wieght loss pills that are from Brazil. Since I did not believe her, she gave 20 pills for me to try and let me tell you that IT DID WORK! I lost 20 pounds in just one month and I'm still take them. I went from a size 18 to a size 10 and I'm happy the way I look.
I too did not come to this forum prior to ordering. I took the SlimBall twice a day as per the instructions.... DID NOT LOSE A Pound !!!!! It was very VERY very hard to get a refund...... Still Waiting...
Wow! I'm so glad I found this website and this thread. I got the info in the mail the other day and was thinking of ordering but did as I always do first: research the company online. Thanks from saving me from a pointless expense and disappointing results.
My father is a 32 year retired postal employee having ranged from delivery to postal inspector. If you feel you have been a victim of mail fraud here is a link you can use to report it. Hope this all helps and thanks for the posts. I am not ordering it now. I will just use good ol' fashion diet and excercise.
Okay - when you open up a flier in a mailing and you notice that ALL of the pictures have been doctored up...photoshopped...whatever.....there's a problem. For example, just take a look at Marie J. or Cecile L.....those don't look like FAKE faces to you? What about Changal G? C'mon!!! The Medical Note on the botton of the first page is laughable. not only will you lost 30 lbs but the product also strenghtens your liver, kidney and WHOLE system and HEALTH!? Well, now, we can just do away with food forever. Why isn't EVERYONE taking this product? This is ridiculous. The only thing that works is a proper, healthy diet and exercise. I can't believe this company has not been sued yet for false claims. For those of you that have purchased this product, watch your mail for one of those federal lawsuit letters telling you that you are owed money because this company is a fraud! Buyer beware!
I wish I had read all the comments before I ordered the product. I was suppose to have received it yesterday on rush delivery. That did not happen, so I called the company to cancel the order and it does not credit back your credit card. Instead they tell you they will send you a check that will take 3 to 5 weeks to arrive. You only get a full refund if you do not open the package at all. They also told me that if it appears to have been opened you will not get your full refund.
I am 66 years old and the pounds have been adding up for the past 12 years. Where I was able to lose quickly at a younger age is now next to impossible to follow the same diet and lose weight. It simply refuses to come off. I have tried numerous weightloss programs and ads to no avail and this is just another one of those ads that some may lose some weight because their metabolism is functioning. Mine at my age is next to nil and many others may have metabolism problems and not know it or maybe thyroid problems. There can be a number of reasons why one cannot lose and others can on the same diet. I am a big skeptic and I cannot afford to lose my money for a diet that is not going to work for me and that is practically every diet in this universe. I have learned to accept my self and try to eat healthy and exercise what my body can withstand without risking injuring or upsetting my health.
i"am glad i found this page but it"s 2 late i order yesterday but as soon as i found this page i called them at1866-494-3792 and told them about this suit and informed them that when u.p.s *** i would b sendin it rite back iz no need 2 open it i wish i had found it yesterday but iam glad i found it 2day
OH my gosh I am soooo glad I found this site before I wasted even more money on something so fake ! I was ready to write out my check ! I looked all over for a ******* but found nothing , which made me suspicious to begin with .....but I am sooooo gullible . Now my paper info I just got in today's mail is burning in my wood stove , and I might add it the papers didn't even burn well !
Hello all. I too, as a fat girl for the past 15 yrs, have tried every diet under the sun. I have lost weight, been healthy and returned to an unhealthy weight. I was tempted by the mailer (even with my mind screaming get real, how fake) and got on the internet to research the product, glad I did and glad I found this web-page. The mailer was just too phony-- but I dared to hope.
I work for the one of the states' Attorney General's Office and STRONGLY recommend that anyone ripped off by this company file a complaint with your state's Attorney General's Office (AG), Consumer Protection Section. Most states have an active AG's Consumer Protection Section that will take action against companies such as this. Many state's AG's office will mediate your personal complaint for you, and if there is a lot of consumer complaints, they will take legal action. I am sending my flyer into our Consumer Protection Office, in fact I am going to call and see if anyone has filed a complaint. Hopefully this company is under investigation already.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this Forum, I will not be ordering this product.
There are so many on the market like it, with even better marketing...and just as few results, I have to admit the photos are pretty bad if you look carefully.
Change your way of eating, it does not take over a week to feel comfortable with eliminating things like wheat products, cheese, fatty, sugary foods - stop cooking with tons of oil. The ways that you can change your diet are many.
I have found a pretty good way of keeping my weight in check on a yearly basis; I spend two months a year on a diet I designed for myself. I base my diet on lean meat and tons of low carb vegetables. I never let myself get hungry, and I have the occasional "treat" to keep me positive (dark chocolate and cappucino with sugar substitute). I normally get down 10 or so pounds. I am not super slim, but neither am I fat.
After years of reading about diets, and trying so many, the advice in the Zone Diet, I believe, is most sane advice you will get for losing and keeping it off.
Give yourself a week to change your eating habits; the first week is the difficult one; don't let yourself get hungry, keep "the good foods" around so you don't grab carbs and sugar in desperation. There ARE ways to getting thinner, and of course, you do need that 20 minutes or more of aerobic exercise to get your body to respond.
I received the SlimBall ad in the mail...in Italy!! I did take the time to read it...and then found this forum through Google...It IS just another gimmick, with nothing bad in it, but it cannot do what it says, you have to change the way you eat first. At any rate it is not worth that kind of money.
I also use Chromimum Picolinate to help boost my metabolism and it seems to, I can say without a doubt that it boosts my energy level, I have used it over a number of years now. It is a component in most diet pills, but on it's own, it costs much less. Longs Drugs carries it and often runs specials on it. I am sure it is available elsewhere.
Drink a lot of water a half hour to 15 minutes before meals, (any closer to meals would interfer with your digestion) we are often thirsty when we think we are hungry, and drinking the water helps to curb your appetite.
Ok.. I ordered Slimball 2 on Sunday (11/9/08) and received it on Wednesday night (11/1208). I have 15-20 pounds that I would like to lose, I am a faithful exerciser, I'm up every morning at 5:30- wether it's to walk for 30 minutes on the treadmill, do an aerobic video, or do my routine on my bowflex. I have lost 20 pounds just through diet and exercise alone, but for the past year I been in a slump with my weight loss, No matter how how I try or work out I just can't seem to make any progress towards getting this last bit off. I am not one for diet pills. But I had a friend that got the gastric balloon and another who recently had the gastric bypass. Which at 150 pounds I don't qualify for either. For some reason I thought I'd give this a whirl.
I got up this morning (11/13/08) and took 1 pill with a bottle of water, I ended up waiting 30 minutes before I ate breakfast, (a ww muffin and a bananna). However I do have a full feeling in my stomach, more then normal. I will continue to do exactly as the directions states and keep you all posted as to the results.... By the way my mother also is trying this and she has about 60 pounds to lose, So I will let you know her results as well.
I will say this....They stated that we would receive a 30 day supply, which is not the case, I have a 20 day supply at taking 1 pill 3 times a day before each meal.
I too ordered this before reading this thread but I have to say I'm actually encouraged at almost everything I've read, YES INCLUDING the "so called" negative reviews.
Yes, I agree the flyer is mostly BS. 60 lbs in 30 days, if you actually believed that **** then ya.... I can see how you're pissed. But it looks like the general consensus is that it makes you feel full. "FULL" means you stop eating..... So if the pill makes you feel full then why the heck aren't you loosing weight. If you spend all day and you're never hungry then how could you possible stuff enough calories down to not loose or even worse gain. Most people need around 1500-3500 calories to maintain their weight even with a fairly low metabolism. So if you're not hungry, how are you still managing to take in more than that many calories. Maybe you need to get checking out by your dr. instead of ordering diet pills that are only meant for healthy individuals. Overall, do the math and count what you're taking in. You may find that the finger isn't pointing at them, it's pointing at you. Isn't that the whole point of this product,so you feel full and eat less.
I think's it's obvious that the "so called" fat burners are a lie. If you can't continue to eat those twinkies and still loose weight then "fat burners" are nothing more than fillers.
Everyone knows to loose weight you must eat less calories than is needed for your body to survive daily. Additionally, the shipping and refunding issues are also a cause for alarm. So understandable so if you don't have the time or money to wait it out, maybe it's not for you. But if you're like me, and suffer with an almost never ending hunger pain it's hard to not to over eat. I honestly eat and I'm hungry again is less than an hour.
If I could just get my body used to a normal eating schedule again by numbing this pain long enough to make some real eating habit changes then I think I have a shot.
I lost 70 lbs on ephedra (before that became the devil) My weightloss my mostly because the pill just got rid of my appetite. I had so much energy I honestly forgot to eat, and when it came time to eat I just didn't feel like it.
So unlike everyone else who's promised to keep you updated, I will not forget after 2-3 posts. Hope to rpt great news, as long as it curbs my appetite I'm a shoe in for success.
Hopefull in TX
I ordered my slimball 2 on Sunday and kept the normal shipping which the representative stated would take between 10-12 business days. I'm happy to say that the package came today which is less than 4 days. It seems as if they may have resolved any shipping issues they had since I'm very satisfied at the fact that they arrived 8 days early.
I will begin taking them tomorrow and update on my progress every couple of days.
Good Luck to all considering this product.
I tried the Slimball product and ordered the maximum dose because I needed to lose a lot of weight and thought this would be a nice way to try and get rid of it. I have both a heart condition and type 2 diabetes so I really wanted to lose back down to about 250 lbs in hopes that I could get away from so much medicine.
The package arrived pretty quick because I paid the extra money for expedited shipping and I began taking it right away. None of the things I was told or read would happen occurred while taking this product. The instructions for dosing were pretty vague other than to take with water 15 minutes before meals which I did and not knowing what amount of water I was supposed to drink may have been the reason for it not working properly because I only drank about 16oz. of water with the tablets but I can tell you that most medications only require you to take with anywhere from 8 to 12 oz. so I figured I was drinking what should have been a good amount to generate the reaction I was told would occur.
Of course nothing changed even with my improved eating habits and my smaller portions I still did not feel the "full effect" that was supposed to occur. I even tried waiting longer before eating, tried eating high fiber foods to help the process and increased my roughage but to no avail. I have lost a few pounds over the last month, about 5 or 6 but not the 100 plus pounds that was supposed to disappear with this product as they described. I hate to say it but the stuff is not worth the money at least to me. Maybe it would be to others though I do not know other than my own experience.
To any of you that try it I wish you the best of luck and hope for your success but I would hold on to your receipts and the like because it will I think be a disappointment to you as well.
Hi so I began taking the product on dec 12th and it's been a little over a week and I've lost 5 lbs. It does give you the feeling that you're full. I can go almost all day and not eat much except for dinner time when I still seem to be eating the full meal size. I think I enjoy eating and I'm not so much still hungry but none the less I think it's working fairly well. Even with me eating similar dinner portions I've almost stopped snacking after dinner and my breakfast and lunch portions being smaller have probably contributed to the 5 lbs I've lost. Granted, I have only 30 more pounds to loose so the product says that people with less weight to loose will probably loose slower and that seems true for me but 5 lbs in less than 2 weeks is a heck of a lot better than nothing. I am enjoying the product thus far. Keep you all posted.
Thanks so much for keeping us posted... I have ordered the product as well because, from what I read, it does give you a feeling of being full, which exactly what I am looking for. I want to avoid snacking and eating less... I am not a glutton... I just want that feeling of being full so I can go on with my day and not think about food too often because I feel hungry.
Hi, I just got my product in the mail today. I did not read these reviews until after receiving the product. I got on here to make sure that there were no side affects I should be concerned about and I got a BIG surprise reading these reviews. I will go ahead and try the product because I have already paid the $109.00 + rush shipping. I will keep everyone posted on my progress. Thanks for all the reviews
To palmtreegirl , mikirudy and all
I was going to order this pill today than it sounds too good to be true People lost 44lb in 21 days 38lb in 14 days Is that possible anyway?
I wanted to make sure this time I ve spent so much money last 6 years I don't want another same s*** I am really tired of spending money for nothing and make myself a stupid over and over
I would like to know what is your ending story because still it sounds really good to me thanks
Man I am so glad I came across this site, I too was about to order slim ball diet ,what a joke and shame on them.I not going to order it .some one here needed slim ball phone # 1-866-494-3792 thanks everyone
Well after reading all off the info I'm going to try another Glucommannan suppliment. I found Super Glucomannan plus Absorbitol by NaturalMax, 90ct found for about $11 a bottle, which if taken 3 caps before each meal as directed would give you 10 days. Hey, at a dollar a day it's worth at least one trial bottle, and it claims that "Absorbitol" absorbs fat from food too. It looks more promising *and much cheaper* than SlimeBall. Buying a bottle or two won't set me back much and is sold at dozens of retailers which bodes well for it. I really just need something to fill my stomach...most diets leave me too hungry and my metabolism plumets. I'm unfortunately also taking classes for 7 and a half hours straight each day, six of those are physical studio arts classes, so I won't really have time for lunch, I'm hoping maybe the Glucommannan and a zone bar, or some dried fruit, might help me through the slump.
Oh, and here's a good link about the health benefits of Glucommannan fiber:
In a week or two I'll let you guys know how I'm fairing, I'd be happy if it even just kept me full through classes regardless of weightloss at this point, but weightloss would be a nice plus ;)
I got this in the mail yesterday, and I thought to myself, if it's so fast, safe and legitimate, why haven't I heard about it before? I'm glad I found this site, because I sure was about to waste my hard earned money, and forego my monthly supply of phentermine. I've been taking 37.5 mg of phentermine since September, and I also lost 70#. I also do about 30 min of cardio 3x week. If you want 100% authentic phentermine, check out http://www.ioffer.com/i/37-5mg-Phen-ter-mine-95783467
...this is where I can get my supply without a script.
I barely received this information in the mail on 2/5/09. I opened it and was feeling desperate. I even put my card info and placed the order into the envelope and placed my address. Then I decided to research! So glad I did,,,lol. I would have gotten ripped off! Oh and as to the person who said they can sue for slander,,,lol, that is funny. I believe there is a law that protects us. We all have a freedom of speech! And to the one that suggested to use Phentermine, yes it does work. It gives you the feeling as if you just did a line of crank or something. Tweeks you out and you dont want to sit down. Makes you not want to eat,,,,anything. But after you loose all the weight,,,you gain it double. I know from experience and I tell all my coworkers about diet pills. They dont believe me and think im a know it all. So, what do they do, try hydroxycut, and the doc's diet,,,,what happened? They are even bigger than I am,,,,lol. I told em!!! Now im telling you. I have taken lipozene and always see results. One thing about that is, once your body gets use to it, it stops working so, I just take it once in a while when I want to lose a couple pounds. I truly like that product. If you have any suggestions let me know. Has anyone tried nutrisystem or anything like that? Id like to know.
I to have just sent out my order for this product.I wish I would of came across this site earlier,but who knows everybody is different,and what works for someone might not work the same for the next person so I will keep my fingers crossed and write new updates as I try it.
I am so glad that I did not order this product. Anytime I see something from another country I am always skeptical anyways. So I asked my hsuband what he thought about it and he didn't think it was a good idea, but he is also and little skinny stick and needs to gain weight so of course I had to google it and find out for myself and I'm glad that I did. Thank you everyone that tried this product before me.
I found this site after I received the product and I don't know what to think either. I tend to agree with the people who say you have to work at losing the weight and if this helps curb your appetite by making you feel full then it's a good thing. There's no way anyone can lose the weight they say you will. I was surprised by how many pages the fliers were. I'll keep everyone posted on how I do. I wish some of the people who wrote last spring and fall would tell us how they did. I took one pill once yesterday and didn't eat anything for dinner and one pill twice today and I felt full and ate less. I didn't weigh myself before I started I did this morning so I'll wait until Sunday or Monday and see how much weight I've lost.
I started the slim ball on March 5th, I tool 1 ball and today I started taking 2 in am and I have taken 3 before lunch. I did weighed myself yesterday before I took the slim ball on a Weight Watchers Scale, I lost 3 pounds - I am not hungry at all. I am finding out that I need to watch my cravings because I am not hungry, now I am not eating just to eat either.
Beware that if you send a money order to slimpass2 Ball your name might not show up in the system and there saying its has not been processed make sure you keep a copy of the recipt from the money order. Was told to call back on the first day of a business week and I found out that no one calls you back I tried calling back on friday of the same business week still couldn't find out about my order also did shipping of $6.95 and still haven't recieved my order which was supposed to only take 3-5 business days and still waiting my product.
I just want to say thank You all for saving my 100.00. I don't know how many times I never see my refund after I discover I have not lost weight and don't feel any better. Great site. Thanks again for all your help with the Bypass2SlimBall saga...............................................
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are so desparate to loose weight that these mailers seem like the answer to all of our weight problems!.
I just wish with the millions our gov. waste, they would find something that would help all of us solve this weight loss problem.
I too am hopeful to loose weight. I have prednisone induced OA and my joints can't hold me even at my borderline obesity right now. I too am a nurse. I was about to order this product because it's easy. I would like to share a better way that I found. Similar to the other RN who used high fiber diets successfully I have been using sprinula tabs, and some fancy colon cleanse product with success. I'm loosing 1lb a week while I add 2 walks around the block to my routine and I'm keeping a diary of what I eat. When I'm walking I must admit I hate it. Today my hips and back were writhing in pain over the walk. The only thing that kept me going was imagining that I was two houses away from a nice hot plate of nachos (my weakness) and somehow my energy levels would take me that far, then I would think up another food like corndogs at the fair... and so on. All my weakness' conquered. When I got home I was feeling full from the spirinula and stuff and I only ate 3 chips about an hour later. I know what I'm having for dinner. It takes a lot of self control to control yourself. I'm at a loosing battle with my joints falling apart at age 33 osteo arthritis due to severely heavy large dose treatments for asthma which I never outgrew of course. Too much prednisone. I understand how we may all be seeking the magic cure pill. I am. I was going to order it. Thank you for posting the ingredients, this really helps put it in perspective for me: it's not magical. Spirinula and other seaweed products do naturally expand and that's what I have always liked about them (other then supreme nutrition). I wish the best of hopes to those who are trying the product, I wish great success to those who decided to try another or self motivate towards a cure. Exercise is one of the most painful things ever for me and I just wish there was a pill that would do it for me but there is not. Reality is something we should check in with daily. Just think of an expanding ball - if you took it with too little water - if it got stuck in the esophagus and swelled - if you have a hernia in the stomach and it swelled there - if it made it into the small intestine and created a SBO small bowel obstruction - all of which could require surgery to remove. Are these pills worth it? There is too much risk in taking something that expands to this size. Persons with inactive esophageal varicies could end up with deadly bleeds once this thing dissolves after tearing the thin lining, persons with normal GI tract lining could end up with severe pockets/ diverticuli in strange places... What if you took it with too much water, how far past your stomach would it go... what about a ball of hair collecting what you eat, how many of us really know what's in our gut? There is too high of a risk on this pill and no responsible party to blame for producing it. As far as I can tell it seems to me to be a college student producing pills in a garage and posting bad photoshop pictures when nobody has really ever done any testing. FDA has not approved this drug. Diet supplements are not regulated. You are a guinea pig for trying anything that claims to be a diet pill like this. Even though they make it seem medical it's not. Please consider your risk. Especially if you are diabetic, a re-sectioning surgery for the small intestine could end up fatal. It's too risky.
Let me explain. When I've got the letter I knew it's a small time operator from mailbox etc. When I read the letter I new there is a lot of fake pictures etc. When people in review cry that it's not a laboratory and not European, the address is in US, well, that's just stupid. Of course, the address is in the US. And your Toyota is made in Mexico, so what? Anyway, picture and boast were not what made me interested.
You see, there is really dietary fiber based pills in Europe and they are getting very popular and give good results there. This looked like them. It's pretty much a treated cellulose that does grow in size when absorbing a lot of water. Sounds simple, but in contrast to phenil...blah et al. it is safe and does what's promised. All stuff about stimulating, vitamins, minerals is irrelevant, in fact it works better without them. If there is anything dangerous about SlimBalls2, that's those additives they boast about.
So, I get it, SlimBalls are not that and it does not work, according to most reviews here. So, where are the real ones? That what I was looking for on Google when stumbled upon this board...
I recently received this whole package regarding the Bypass 2 Slim Ball. I recently ordered a product called Lipofuze from a company called ERN Laboratories, so I when I saw this envelope, I thought it was something from them. Lypofuze gaurantees to lose 2 pounds a day as well. I did not lose one pound. I have been going to the doctors regularly and they tell me that I am at the same weight as I was a month ago, so I put that weight loss supplement underneath the sink to collect dust. I opened it to find information on the Bypass 2 Slim Ball. I had read through all of the material sent to me. I knew I had to research it first because I have ordered many diet supplements to see if they will work for me. I have spent hundreds of dollars on weight loss supplements hoping for a miracle . Some have worked, while others put weight on me. Over a year ago, I lost 40 pounds by changing my eating habbits, drinking about 64 to 100 oz. of water a day and exercising. I put it back on after meeting my husband, going back to school and eating out almost every night out of convenience. I am having trouble going back to what I did before to lose weight. This Bypass 2 Slim Ball looked like a miracle when it said it would expand to make you feel full and eat less. I thought to myself "maybe this is a good product, but how does it leave your stomach." I told my husband I was going to research this more to find that answer. Today I had a little time, since I am not at work, to research this product more. I called the company to ask the question of: How does the Bypass 2 Slim Ball leave the body if no surgery is needed, but it expands in your stomach? The lady on the other line said: "it digests with your food." I then thought to myself, "how could it possible expand in your stomach it it digest with your food. I have taken weight loss supplements that curve my appetite just the same, so what is the difference." She then was trying to get me to order right now. I told her that I will think about it more and call back if I decide to order it. While I was on the telephone with her, my husband found this blog. He said: "you need to read this blog, it is just another scam." I told him that I did not order it. I think he was relieved.
For your information: The address I have on my envelope is: European 2 Laboratories, 8014 Olson Memorial Hwy #413, Hwy 55 & Winnetka, Golden Valley, MN 55427, telephone no. 1 (866) 494-3792.
I have realized that all weight loss products should be researched before purchasing for health reasons as well as spending lots of money on what does not work. Also, weight loss products are temporary help. The real thing that works in weight loss is eating right and small portions, drinking lots of water and exercising.
Thanks for all of your blogs, it has helped in my decision of ordering this product. I will not be trying another scam.
keep your mouth close if you don't want to try the product if so then try it. don't sit up here and have people to listen to all of you neggin about "such a simple letter in the mail" saying the same **** over over and over again. if you read to or more naggin then don't you negg try the product first then run your d*** sucker sorry people.
Hello. First and foremost, missflitchey40, I would like to say be encouraged while taking your slimball, and not let some of the negativity that you have heard about this product, over ride your determination to lose whatever amount of weight that you are wishing to lose. I would also like to say to everyone that has taken the product, and has successful results, congrats! It is such an accomplishment. For everyone else, I started a weight loss plan approx the 2nd week of October and from October-beginning of January, I lost a total of 21 lbs, with out taking any supplement. My diet consisted of Prayer for strength, and to continue to walk in the deliverance from my eating addiction, lots of water, consuming no more than 1200-1300 calories a day, laying off so many breads, sweets, and fast food. Don't get me wrong, I still eat those things, but I limit, and make much wiser decisions. Since January 4, I have been on adipex, reason being, is that I have Degerative Joint disease in both knees and I am only 30. My doctor felt it was best for me to lose a little more weight, a little more quicker. I have lost 19+ lbs on them, however it's not easy work. Yes, it speeds up your metabolism, and curves your appetite, however you still have to maintain a healty lifestyle. Until I was able to get delivered in my mind from my eating addiction, I was not able to ever keep any weight off. It's a mind thing, and the first step to conquering this weight loss battle, once and for all, is to get delivered in the mind first. I am pleased to announce that my doctor didn't expect me to lose as much weight as I have in this short amount of time, and I will no longer be on the adipex by the end of this month because I have met my weight loss goal of 150 lbs! Be encouraged to all, and keep pushing and fighting! You will succeed :) God Bless
Once you respond to one of these you are targeted for the rest of your life as a desperate seeker of instant gratification. About once a month
you will recieve a new weightloss gimmick: (pineapple extract, weightloss patch, slimball2, herbs from africa etc.) These adds all claim to be backed by doctors, ficticious or real? They all claim to give you amazing weightloss results at an amazingly fast rate. If I had saved all the adds and pictures of people who claim to have lost miraculous amounts of weight, I'm almost sure that I have seen the same faces over and over on different adds. They feed on your desperation, and your desire to rid yourself of this unwanted weight without any of the effort. What it comes down to people, unfortunately, is you just have to buckle down, and do it the good old fashioned hard way. Eat better and exercise more. If any of these products did what they claimed to do, they would be getting national coverage and you most suredly would not be hearing about them for the first time in a direct mailing. Don't worry, we've all been duped at least once in our lives, live and learn and do your research. And finally listen to the voice of reason. You know, the one that says if it sounds too good to be true it probably is..........
I have been using Slimball for several days. The truth behind the pills effect are true, to a point. One: it does fill you up and keep you full for hours, pending on if you take more than one. Two: with something constantly in your stomach, the metabolic rate increases and it causes the body to burn stored fat, pending on your age and weight. Three: with the intake of foods,after you eaten something, the brain tells you when you are full and you eat less because of the amount of food you eaten is sufficent. Using this product is ONLY an aid in Fat Loss. The ingredients are very simple. There's only one thing that IS NOT TRUE about their product, that is the 5 lbs in a weekend....i mean, its not rocket science that NO BODY on the planet(unless you're one of the few people with extremely high metabolic rates) can lose weight in 2 days with 5lbs. You'd have to be crack or cocaine to do that. Also, i've learned even at the age of 26, nothing is effortless. You have to mix some excerise with it. It's the only way to do it. Like i said, the pills are to AID you in FAT LOSS. You might be paying some change $100+. but if you wanna lose the FAT off, give this pill another chance.
well im so glad i read the comments posted n i will keep it all n mind. i hav tried relacore n lost up to 20lbs while takin it. unfortnately my eatin habbits r bad and i gained th weight back. i went 2 buy sum more relacore n dey changed it and now it dont work da same. im mad at dat.
I received a pamphlet in the mail and it was for SLIM BALL - I have read some of the comments but they are from 2008!!! SO has anyone tried SLIM BALL this year? I'd LOVE to know if yall have had good results or NOT?
Thank you so much for your post. So much negativity about this product, even from those who never tried it... Really depressing. I received my order of SlimBall today and can't wait to try it. I believe it is true there is no "miracle pill" out there. I just need some help while I am trying to lose weight. I hope this product will assist me along with a bit of exercise and watching what I eat. I'm excited to give it a shot and appreciate your positivity :)
