Introduction

Weight loss drinks seem to be all the rage these days – much like their fat burner cousins, these types of products boast big weight loss / fat burning claims, but which ones genuinely work? In this AdvoCare Slim review, we’re taking an in-depth look into the formula that powers this fat burning drink, to establish what we believe consumers really can expect from it.

What Is AdvoCare Slim?

Slim is a weight loss drink made by a supplement brand named AdvoCare International (trading as AdvoCare). The company are based in Texas, USA and currently hold a 4 star customer rating on the Better Business Bureau. The brand has 20 complaints filed against them (8 of which have been resolved).

This product is available from the AdvoCare official website (www.advocare.com), Amazon and via one of the company’s many independent resellers. We do not believe Slim is stocked in stores.

Another interesting tidbit is that in 2017 AdvoCare was sued by the FTC for running a so-called “Pyramid Scheme”. The Federal lawsuit stated that 71.5% of distributors who bought into the brand to resell would actually lose money.

This product is targeted towards those looking to lose or maintain their weight. Unlike most other stimulant-based weight loss products that come in capsule-form, AdvoCare have essentially created a drinkable fat burning supplement that comes in sachets. Consumers have been promised effects such as boosted metabolic rates, a suppressed appetite and the improved ability to burn body fat.

One pack of AdvoCare Slim costs $32.95, contains 14 servings and will last users for 7 days, based on the directions of drinking two sachets per day.

Does AdvoCare Slim Work?

Based on our research into this product, we think it may be useful for the purposes of weight loss if used correctly, however we do not believe it will function exactly as we’ve seen it described by AdvoCare and its resellers.

Firstly, there are no scientifically-proven weight loss ingredients inside this product – Slim will not directly and independently burn body fat. If you were hoping that you could just sit back and relax while Slim burns away your excess body fat, then you’ll likely be disappointed.

In our opinion, this product is best viewed as a weight loss aid, rather than a bonafide “fat burning drink”. If you’re willing to put in the work (i.e. start exercising and put yourself on a VLCD) then you could potentially see decent results using Slim, but it’s important to note that it’s not going to single-handedly deliver you weight loss results.

Slim contains some useful ingredients that can help boost your energy levels and reduce your perceived rate of exertion, which will allow you to work harder in the gym. With a little bit of willpower and determination, we don’t see why you couldn’t lower your body fat percentage using Plexus Slim as a support mechanism.

I wasn’t sure about trying this product, but I lost weight fast and thought I would try it a second time and it worked again. So I’m a huge fan.

This did nothing to curb my appetite except if you count making me feel sick to my stomach. I would never recommend this. Terrible.

Our Final Verdict On AdvoCare Slim

To conclude our AdvoCare Slim review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

In our opinion, this “weight loss drink” is really more of an energy drink. We believe that, rather than burning away user excess body fat, the most this product is really going to do is boost your energy levels, which will give you a more intense workout – these effects can allow you to burn more calories, thus allowing you to lose weight faster than normal.
