So, at the Curves I work at, a lot of the ladies have been having success with the Slim and Sassy essential oil. Here's the definition of what it does from the company that makes it, doTerra.
dōTERRA®'s Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend is a proprietary formula of 100% pure CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils designed to help manage appetite between meals. Slim & Sassy includes a blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon essential oils. Just add 8 drops to 16 oz. of water (regular size bottle of water) and drink between your healthy meals throughout the day to help manage hunger, calm your stomach, and lift your mood. For aromatic, topical, and internal use.
So, my boss has given me a 2 week challenge to see if it works for me. I don't meet with the dietitian until next week, so I should be able to give it a fair go. For me, I really don't like the taste of it, so they told me to mask it with the Lime essential oil. It kind of just gives everything a more bland taste, but it mellows out the "just brushed my teeth" feeling. I can also use it topically, so I think that's the route that I will really go! ;)
So, we will see if this curbs my appetite like everyone claims it does. I feel it probably works, because I've seen many of the ladies here love it! I tried it yesterday as the first day, so here we go! I will give a full report on July 11th!
