I Have Been Told I Am Pre-Diabetic: What Is It?
Pre-Diabetes means you are on the road to diabetes but still have the chance to reverse things and move back to normal health.
A Glucose Intolerance Test by your GP will determine if you are a pre diabetic and indicates that your carbohydrate metabolism is not working effectively therefore your body is not moving glucose (sugar) out of your blood stream.
Losing weight is key to controlling pre-diabetes. Energy Slim products will help you lose weight and also build lean muscle. Muscle is the major uptake of glucose in the blood stream so it is important in controlling blood sugar.

Firstly, Energy Slim Shakes are low in sugar which means they are LOW G.I and importantly contain NO FRUCTOSE thereby making them an excellent meal choice for diabetics. They are also very convenient which allows you to eat regularly and further control blood sugar levels.
We do advise to contact your Health Care Professional for individual concerns.

How Do Energy Slim Products Help Me Lose Weight?
Energy Slim Appetite Control Formula is uniquely designed to absorb quickly and thermogenically burn fat whilst providing a crash free energy boost. It is a great pick-me-up and alternative to coffee.
Our Weight Control Shakes use the highest quality whey protein available which has been proven statistically to burn more fat & promote lean tissue. They keep you feeling fuller for longer so you to eat less. Most other shakes are high in fructose (sugar) and often leave you feeling hungry and may even cause stomach cramping.
What Does Thermogenisis Really Mean?
There are fancy definitions favoured by scientists, but in more conversational terms, Thermogenesis is the process of increasing the amount of calories you burn and the energy you have to use.
As your system is stimulated, you burn more calories, which has two positive results. First, you lose weight – awesome! Second, you have more energy because the energy your body has been storing in your fat cells is released for use!
Why Does Eating Sugar Stop Me Burning Fat?
When we eat, our body converts carbohydrates into blood sugar (glucose). Our blood sugar level can affect how hungry and how energetic we feel. It also determines whether we burn fat or store it. Stabilising blood sugar prevents fat storage and maximises fat loss.
Our pancreas creates a hormone called insulin that transports sugar into our blood stream where it is used for energy. When we eat sugary or carbohydrate-rich foods that are quickly processed our pancreas goes into overtime to produce the insulin necessary for all this blood sugar to be used for energy. This insulin surge tells our body that plenty of energy is readily available and that it should stop burning fat and start storing it.
An insulin surge also causes too much blood sugar to be transported out of our blood which results in our blood sugar and insulin levels dropping below normal leaving us feeling tired, hungry and wanting to eat more. The unfortunate result of this scenario is that it makes us want to eat something else with a high sugar content. When we do, we start the cycle all over again.
What is the Connection between Bodyfat and Diabetes?
Both adults and children are being affected by diabetes as their weight continues to take a steady trend upwards. The more body fat you have on the body, the more insulin you required after carbohydrates are eaten.
If insulin is not produced, sugar from carbs will stay in blood stream causing high blood (glucose) sugar, which is what causes diabetes.
More & more body fat requires more & more insulin. This constant need and overproduction of insulin can really wear on your pancreas. Fast foods, high fat snack foods & highly processed snack bars place extra stress on pancreas making it hard to secrete insulin & control blood sugar levels.
Over time this begins to wear on the pancreas until eventually it’s burnt out and just not functioning properly.
Alcohol is a Carbohydrate Right?
Alcohol is not a carbohydrate. Your body processes alcohol first, before fat, protein or carbs. Thus drinking slows down the burning of fat. Alcoholic beverages give you calories without nutrition. Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram compared to 4 calories per gram for protein, 4 for carbs, and 9 for fat. Another danger comes from the mixers used in cocktails, many of which have high sugar contents (soft drinks, juices, tonic, etc.).
Alcohol also prevents the body’s natural, protective response to hypoglycemia. When the body wants to release stored glycogen (sugar) to combat low blood sugar levels, alcohol prevents it from doing so.
What is Metabolism & Why Is It Important?
Your metabolism simply put is the rate at which your body burns fat. The faster your metabolism the more calories you burn 24 hours/day. A slower metabolism burn fewer calories in the same timeframe. As your body loses fat your metabolic rate increases and so does your daily calorie burning.
What is BMI and What Does It Show Me?
BMI (Body Mass Index) charts tell us how much we should weigh based on your height. Check your BMI score on the chart below & discover what the chart indicates your body shape to be:
- Underweight = 12 – 18
- Normal healthy weight = 18 -24
- Overweight = 25-29
- Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
To read the BMI chart below look for you weight (horizontally) and height (vertically) where the two measurements meet is your Body Mass Index Chart rating. Note that the BMI chart below displays weight in both lbs and kg for as well as inches and centimetres for height.
Is There Unhealthy Crash Dieting Involved? NO
No. Starving oneself is ‘so last year’.
Energy Slim products are ideal supplements for your healthy eating plan. We recommend you eat 3-5 small nutritious meals evenly spaced through the day to maximise weight loss and avoid overeating in the evenings. Regular eating will help sustain your energy throughout the day.
We recommend 1-2 Weight Control Shakes along with 2-3 healthy meals each day. For menu ideas refer the kmnvfvv.

Why Is Drinking Water So Important?
This habit is not only important for weight loss, it is also vital to ensure your future health. Water flushes the body of toxins that slow the process of breaking down fats. You will also notice a change in your skin and energy levels when you drink adequate water . Many illnesses in Australia are linked to dehydration.
Try drinking 1.5 – 2 ltrs water each day. Use a water bottle so you can monitor how much you drink per day. Each day try to beat the amount of water you consumed yesterday.
