Slim in 6 is a diet plan marketed by a company called Beachbody. The plan consists of a weight-reduction program geared to reshape your body within six weeks. The diet combines nutritional adjustment with cardio and resistance exercises. You should consult your physician before embarking on Slim in 6 or any other diet plan.

History

Debbie Siebers created the Slim in 6 diet plan.

Slim in 6 costs three payments of $19.95, plus shipping. In addition to the three workout DVDs, the program includes a training band to help with muscle-toning exercises, an extra 30-minute workout DVD called “Cardio Core” and a six-day diet plan that Beachbody claims will help you lose up to 6 pounds and 6 inches in your first six days.

Beachbody offers a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee with the Slim in 6 weight-loss program. If you are not completely satisfied with your results after six weeks, you can return the product for a full refund, no questions asked. You can keep the free diet plan and resistance band.

Considerations

According to Diet Spotlight, there are a number of disadvantages to this diet, including: it seems to be designed only for women, it does not include the use of appetite suppressants, it calls for a significantly radical change in lifestyle that might be difficult for some people, results might be slow, and the diet plan offers no fat-burning supplements.
