SLENDER was developed to make it as easy as possible to support a slender healthy body and we use only 80% HCA. As with any dietary aid, SLENDER should be taken as instructed along with a regular exercise routine. SLENDER should not be used as an excuse to eat more sugar and carbs. In the studies those that lost the most weight took the amount of HCA you will get in a daily dose, walked an average of 25 minutes 4 days a week. We have always said that the only way to lose weight and keep it off is to make a habit of eating less. Because SLENDER helps with cravings and appetite we suggest you use it to help you form the habit of eating slower and eating less.
