PHASE ONE: PREPARATION STAGE
Start your Slenderiiz Program by telling your fast food cravings to take a hike! It’s called “junk” food for a reason. Junk foods are fake, food substitutes and will minimize your fat loss by spiking blood sugar and increasing inflammation from starch and vegetable oils that cause disease and ruin your metabolism.
Prepare your body for the fat burning phase for two days by eating as normal with the exception of cutting out fast foods. For optimal results start to add healthy fats to your diet such as avocado, raw nuts and seeds and begin taking Slenderiix & Xceler8 as directed.
HANDY TIP: Adding ARIIX supplements to your daily health regimen can provide crucial cellular nutrition, rebalance body fat stores, and support normal blood sugar, hormone and energy levels as well as optimizing your metabolism while participating in the Slenderiiz weight loss program.†
PHASE TWO: FAT BURNING STAGE
To start your Fat Burning Stage, go through your cupboards and toss out cookies, pastries, candy, processed meats, potato chips, soda, high-sodium frozen foods, boxed foods and canned soups.
HANDY TIP: If you find yourself hitting a plateau after six months of beginning your program and you have stopped losing weight before you have reached your goal, it is recommended you discontinue taking the Slenderiix drops for one month. Continue taking the Xceler8 drops and consider adding Rejuveniix with breakfast. This will jumpstart your body allowing further weight loss.
Each day, eat three regular healthy meals, with foods from the approved list. If you prefer, you may choose to spread your calories out to include smaller meals and two snacks, using foods only from the Approved Food List.
Your highest calorie meal should be breakfast and lowest calorie meal should be dinner, allowing your body time to digest and burn off calories before resting in the evening.
HANDY TIP: Use our PureNourish for two meals each day with water, or unsweetened almond or coconut milk and ½ cup of added fruit. Lowest in sugar, means highest in fat burning. These are: strawberries, blackberries, raspberries or blueberries.
HANDY TIP: ARIIX Puritii water filter bottles are a great choice for keeping purified water on hand at all times.
If you have not been getting much exercise prior to our program, it is important to begin slowly and build up to our recommended level of exercise over the next few weeks.
Note: When you exercise, you lose fat and gain muscle which slows the appearance of your weight loss on the scale, because muscle weighs more than fat but takes up less space. Be sure to keep measurements to track your progress if you are active with weight bearing exercises.
HANDY TIP: Use a pedometer and try to reach or exceed 10,000 steps each day.
REMEMBER: Only eat from the approved food list Count Calories Track water intake
A ROUTINE SCHEDULE IS GOOD.
Remember: Don’t fear fat! Good fats are good for you!
Eat the most calories in the morning and the least amount at night to allow your body all day to burn them off.
Do not eat after 7 p.m. to allow your body time to burn off the calories while you are still walking around. Eating even a small dinner and then zoning out for the rest of the night is damaging to metabolism and interferes with digestion and quality sleep.

PHASE THREE: MAINTENANCE
Congratulations on reaching your goal! Now, it is important to maintain your healthy life-style including a balanced diet and regular exercise.
By now you’ve gained an appreciation for the danger that processed foods brings to your health and weight control. You have been eating a low-glycemic diet and now it is time to gradually add carbohydrates back into your diet.
In order to avoid common pitfalls, remember the healthy foods that were so successful for supporting a lifestyle of fat-burning while on the Slenderiiz program. Continue to build your lifestyle around these healthy food choices and be aware of what time of day you eat, how much you are taking into your body and the quality of those calories.
Remember to avoid white bread, white flour, pasta, rice and potatoes along with all other highly refined starches and processed foods, instead eating only whole grain breads (containing the entire grain), whole grain pasta, whole grain rice, sweet potatoes and red potatoes. By following these guidelines you are eating in a way that avoids spiking your blood sugar and will continue to support the new, healthier you.

Q: What should I expect when starting this program?
A: You may experience a withdrawal from processed foods if your diet was high in fast-food or frozen prepared or canned food before the program. As these chemical residues work
their way out of your system, you may experience some cravings, but it is important to be strong through these first 48 hours so you can get to the good part!
The Slenderiix drops will begin to take full effect after about 48 hours. To ensure weight loss, eat plenty of fibrous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, cucumbers,
red peppers, and cabbage.
If you are truly hungry and not just experiencing withdrawal from the chemicals in processed foods, you need to eat more fiber rich vegetables and drink more water.
Fiber and water intake are extremely important to your success with this program.
Q: Do I need to exercise while on this program?
A: Exercise is important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Even small amounts each day will benefit you. Exercise will help you to lose inches though the scale may not reflect it as quickly because you are, at the same time, gaining muscle.
Q: What if I need to cheat?
A: If you are going to deviate from the program at all, then eat more lean proteins or green vegetables and healthy fats.
Try to not eat sweets! By eating sugar, starch and vegetable oils, you can set your weight loss back and change your fat-burning potential by three to four days.
Small deviations will not usually cause a sudden weight gain, but will slow your weight loss. We prefer that you do not stray from the program, but if you do, be smart in your approach.
Make sure that your departure from the “ideal,” is in moderation. Don’t allow your cheating to set you back to the point that you give up.
Q: What do I do if I hit a plateau?
A: It is normal to experience plateaus for two to five days. If it persists for longer than six days, you need to do one of two things to push your metabolism out of the plateau to allow your continued weight loss:
Option 1: For one full day, eat only protein, water, Slenderiix & Xceler8 drops.
Option 2: Drink three PureNourish shakes a day with two apples as in between meal snacks. Slenderiix & Xceler8 drops and plenty of water.
*Shakes can be prepared with two cups of organic baby spinach blended into the shake to increase fiber and digestive-cleansing enzymes.
