Last week I was given the opportunity to review these skinny sprinkles for my University magazine which I am now writing for. This isn't something I would usually post on my blog but I thought some of you may be interested if you were thinking of trying them:
I have always been quite sceptical of so called ‘diet’ pills, shakes and weight loss supplements and have never really felt the need to use them. But when I was given the opportunity to try these Skinny Sprinkles I was intrigued to know if they would actually work and how they would benefit a healthy lifestyle. We all know that uni makes you fat! Binge drinking, cooking for yourself and having Tesco right around the corner means that many students gain a few pounds. I know I have which is why I wanted to give these a try.
It is important to point out that this product should not be used for dramatic weight loss or as meal replacements, they are primarily an addition to your diet and are used to help you feel fuller for longer, eat smaller portion sizes, or just as a snack replacement when you need a bit of a pick me up.
Now, here is the technical bit. Skinny Sprinkles is “a strawberry flavoured weight loss drink mixed with water to form a smoothie. With less than 20 calories per drink, it contains active ingredients scientifically proven to boost weight loss, increase alertness and stamina as well as maintaining weight. Skinny Sprinkles contains the active ingredient Glucomannan to aid weight reduction in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet. Glucomannan expands in the stomach to become a gel which like food, empties slowly”
Got it? All that sounds good to me, and the thing I like most about it is that it is not just aimed at people wanting to lose weight, it can also be used to help boost stamina and performance before a gym session which is perfect to give you that much needed energy and motivation to hit the gym after a long day in the library.
The sachets are really easy to make, you just empty the contents into a glass, fill with water and stir, and then voila, you’re ready to down it. And when I say down it, I mean it. It settles really quickly so if you don’t get it down in one then you are left with the residue at the bottom. The drink smells really nice, and tastes alright I suppose, being a relatively fussy eater I found it manageable, so a normal person should have no problem!
And now for the results, did it actually work? YES it did! I tended to drink mine just before the gym to give me energy and stave off hunger before dinner, and it really worked. It gave me loads of energy and banished those hunger pangs straight through til dinner. If you are looking for a really fast way to shed a few pounds then I would definitely recommend Skinny Sprinkles, or if you just take them every so often before a big gym session then thumbs up too. But if you are looking for a long-term solution then these aren’t for you. Although, I enjoyed experimenting with these, I don’t think I would purchase them again as I don’t like the idea of there being gel in my stomach and don’t think they will work in the long term.
