FAQ


"With Gourmet Slimmers I lost over 50kg, and over 46 inches, yes – 46!!!I have tried every diet out there. I have been “dieting” most of my life, I have always been overweight and knew that I needed to get healthy for myself and also to be healthy for future children. I struggled with weight loss because it seemed that every program I tried I failed at. I couldn’t believe that I would ever be able to lose that much weight, I even had to clean out my whole closet-not because clothes were too tight, but because they no longer fit me for the first time in my life!! I love going into a store and being able to buy clothes off the rack." Susan Badenhorst, Nelspruit 

 

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Each person has their own particular combination of causes of their excess weight and therefore the rate of weight loss will depend on how much repair work needs to be done, the chemical medication being taken, and the inherent vitality of that individual.
 

When can I expect to start seeing results?

You will begin to notice weight loss within a week to ten days. If you are not losing weight on the scale, you could be retaining extra fluid to dilute the concentration of toxins circulating in the bloodstream after being released from the broken down fat cells. This will pass as soon  as the toxins have been excreted  and  their  levels become  manageable for normal excretory  processes. It is a good idea to take body measurements before embarking on your weight loss programme. In this way you will be able to  record  the  reduction in your  body  size, and  you won’t be concerned  if the scale doesn’t show much movement.

 

How do I use the Slimmers Starter Pack?

The Starter Pack was put together to enable a person to use all the remedies for slimmers to cover all possible reasons for your excess weight or difficulty losing weight, so it is very important to use the remedies as follows. 

Natru for Slimmers 10 minutes before breakfast, Natru Fat Loss Accelerator 10 minutes before lunch and Natrurinec 10 minutes before dinner.

The Natru System Cleanse is used as directed on the bottle because you only use it for the first month. 
Taken this way, the pack will last 3 months and will also give you the best results.
 
 

Will I feel hyperactive, sleepless or nervous?


"Losing weight has always been a challenge and a goal I have never been able to meet until now. Over the years I have tried multiple diet and exercise programs with no more than a 3kg drop in weight. Just when I started to give up hope, I took that leap of faith and would recommend anyone who has been struggling to do the same. A total of 42 lost kilos. Wow!! I am impressed with what has been accomplished." Isabel Muller, Shelly Beach


You will not experience any of these unpleasant symptoms with Gourmet Slimmers. Appetite suppressants and most slimming aids available from your pharmacy, even the natural ones, contain central nervous system stimulants so they have side effects like sleeplessness and irritability. Our products do not contain any stimulants, so this does not happen with Gourmet Slimmers.

 

Will I put on weight afterwards?


"They say “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and when I saw a picture of me at my daughter’s wedding this year, I knew it told a story. The images in those wedding photos spoke that I had let my weight get out of control. My feet hurt almost constantly and if I sat for any amount of time, when I stood I would limp from stiffness and pain. Even my doctor was starting to stress blood sugar and blood pressure levels were starting to become a problem. To date I have lost a total of 34 kg in less than 6 months. I am not only thinner, but more flexible. I am no longer stiff and in pain. My feet don’t hurt, and I have way more energy. I can’t believe how different my life is!" Mariska Viljoen, Oudtshoorn


Because you don’t go on 'a diet', your body learns to adapt to a normal, healthy balanced diet. Your appetite naturally decreases due to the blood sugar regulation and enhanced nutrition absorption. Weight  is  lost  because  all  the  organs  in  the  body begin to function  properly.  This is why some people can continue losing weight even after stopping the programme. Their body is cleansed and working efficiently, so it will continue breaking down the excess fat until a healthy weight is achieved.  Gourmet Slimmers is only needed to repair, regulate and detoxify the body.  Once that is done the body breaks down excess fat tissue without any additional help.
 

Should I drink a lot of water?


"Gaining weight does not happen overnight; it is a process that happens over time and is very difficult to correct. As I neared my 30s, I noticed a few extra kilos creeping up on me every year. By the time I was in my 40s, I was seriously overweight and began trying various weight loss programs. Nothing worked. I would lose 7 – 10 kilos and then gain it right back, plus a few extra kilos. When I started Gourmet Slimmers I could not believe how quickly and easily the kilos began to disappear! I lost 32kg, my health dramatically improved and I feel years younger! Losing so much weight has given me a great sense of pride in my accomplishment and my new appearance. There have even been times when I catch a glimpse of a reflection in a window and wonder who that person is, and then realize it’s ME! I have lost 6 full dress sizes." Louise Laker, Rivonia


The  only  time  you  need  to  increase  your  fluid intake  is during periods of intense detoxification, and you will know that you need to increase your fluid intake  because your urine will become dark in colour with a stronger  odour  than usual.


It is a good idea to have a glass of water as you wake up in the morning and just before going to bed at night, in fact, have a glass of water as part of your teeth brushing ritual. Eating a diet rich in foods with a high water content will also supply your body with good quality fluid.
 

Do I need to exercise for weight loss?


"Over the last few years I experienced a significant weight increase, to a point where it was affecting not only my health but my happiness. The joys found in family events, dinners with friends, and traveling were overshadowed by my increasing weight concerns and declining health. I was unsuccessful in my attempts to lose the weight on my own and knew I needed help. Thanks to Gourmet Slimmers I have lost 21kg. I have more positive attitude and increased confidence, which affects all aspects of my life." Elizma Naude, Bloemfontein


Regular exercise helps weight loss, but only if you are getting enough sleep (around 8 hours a night). The best form of exercise for weight loss is brisk walking for half an hour 3 times a week.
 

Is it safe to use while on the contraceptive pill?


"Gourmet Slimmers has made a huge impact on my life! I’m so glad I made the decision to try it! I have been overweight my entire adult life and I knew deep down I couldn’t bear going through another yo-yo dieting cycle, falling victim yet again to the latest crazy diet fad—If I was really going to honestly face my weight issues, I wanted to face it 100% head on, and find a solution for the rest of my life. I lost 16kg in 3 months, Gourmet Slimmers changed my life!" Ronel van Breda, Polokwane


Some slimming products containing stimulants like caffeine, amphetamine o guarana are known to make the pill less effective or safe because they artificially increase the metabolic rate leaving you susceptible to falling accidentally pregnant as the effect of the contraceptive pill wears off sooner than expected. Since Natru remedies do not contain stimulants there is no danger of this happening when you use Natru remedies for slimming. 
 

Can I use this if I am on thyroid medication?


"I have hypothyroidism and have been struggling the last 5 years with constant weight gain. I was at the end of my rope with diets and was about to throw in the towel, when I saw Gourmet Slimmers on facebook. It was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I have lost a total of 28kg. The most dramatic change has been that I’m able to wake up feeling 10 years younger and l no longer in constant pain. I wake up feeling ready to go and conquer the day." Stephanie Lourdes, Sunninghill


If you have had a thyroid condition for many years, you will lose weight slower than most people. In the first month your energy and other bodily functions improve. You’ll probably start losing weight in the second month, although some people on thyroid medication have reported losing weight in their first month.  
 

Can I drink alcohol?


“In the first month I found that my eating patterns changed, because I used to eat late at night. I only lost 2.5 kg. But I decided not to give up and when I had finished my second month, I had lost 7 kg. My headaches decreased and I still enjoy my glass of wine every night.” – Aleta Fourie, Bothaville


Alcohol, in moderation, is good for you. The latest scientific research finds that a glass of red wine with your meals lowers the incidence of cardiovascular disease. 


Beer is rich in vitamin B complex and silica, and a good  drink  to  have  in  the  evening  if you suffer  from  insomnia,  because  hops  is a  natural sedative  that will gently  help  to put  you  to  sleep. Again, remember that one beer will suffice. Avoid hard  liquor  such as brandy,  whiskey  and  vodka,  among  others, as these contain little nutritive value and are like sugar – they supply empty calories and, in order  for the body to process  the alcohol,  valuable  vitamins  have to be leached  from your  system.  Do not drink liqueurs at all, as they have a high sugar content.
 

Will women who are on HRT lose weight?


"Before Gourmet Slimmers I was not in a good place. I was suffering complications from Type 1 Diabetes and I was very depressed. I immediately discovered little things starting to happen, like tying my shoes easier, breathing better, my posture  improved, I was standing taller. The confidence that came with all of those little wins had me realize it wasn’t so much about losing weight but what I was gaining. Strength, energy, a sense of fun - and the best part - 22kg lighter!" Melissa Ramsey, Somerset West


Female  sex  hormones can  be  made  by  the  liver  and  fat cells, so menopause does not  mean  that  absolutely no oestrogen  is being made by the body anymore. Therefore, it is not essential to take hormone drugs unless organs like the liver and endocrine glands are not working properly.
Gourmet Slimmers is useful for women going through menopause. Not only does it help to maintain a healthy weight, they will also help to combat the uncomfortable symptoms   often experienced during menopause, like hot flushes and water retention. Gourmet Slimmers helps to repair the endocrine system and liver function, which results in the body producing and balancing the hormones correctly without any drug use, removing all unpleasant menopausal symptoms.
 

Can men lose weight?


“My husband lost 10 kg with in one month. It changed his life. He sleeps well, is calm and peaceful and a pleasure to the whole family.” – Eva, Windhoek


Yes, men lose weight very well.
  

Will I lose weight if my weight problem is genetically based?


 “I would just like to tell you that I have lost 4.5 kg in one month. Our family has a history of weight problems. After being warned by my doctor to lose weight because of my high blood pressure, I must admit I’m feeling great now and don’t regret using the remedies. I haven’t picked up one ounce yet.” – Joanne Higgins, Matroosfontein


Gourmet Slimmers strengthens and repairs organ function, so that even though there is a weakness inherited from the family, it is still possible to lose weight by repairing a person's health as a whole using the remedies.
 

Can I start while I’m ill or should I wait until I’m well again before starting?


"Eight months later, I have liberated my body of almost 61kg of useless fat. I weigh less now than I have been in over twenty-five years. I feel fantastic, and I can do so much more than I could before. Walking and running are no problems. Going up and down stairs is easy. Exercising is fun. I can join my kids on their bike rides, and I can't thank you enough for these amazing products." Anne-Marie Botes, Upington


There is no need to wait until you can begin. Sometimes people delay starting  their remedies because they first want  to finish a course of medication, are waiting  for a good time to start dieting (maybe until the festive season is over), or they are waiting until they start feeling better after an illness.
As soon as you receive your package, start immediately.  If you want to go on a diet, then starting will motivate you. If you are feeling unwell, Gourmet Slimmers will improve your health much quicker than if you were not taking them because they help your body to deal efficiently with any condition it may be suffering from.

 

Can people suffering from high blood pressure use the remedies?


“I am sixty eight and feeling great. I have more energy. My zest for life is back. My high blood pressure has stabilized.  I was a size 42 and am now a size 38. My aches and pains are much less. Thank you for a great product.” – Cynthia Mulligan, Kuilsrivier


Gourmet Slimmers is especially useful  for people with blood  pressure problems. Many people are on blood pressure medication for years and still suffer. The condition can be improved on Gourmet Slimmers programme.
 

Do I need to go on a diet?


 “I lost a lot of weight without watching what I eat. My friends can’t believe that I lost so much.  Do you also have responses like this from other users? You really do have a fantastic product. I decided to give it a go and have not looked back. I also notice that there are no side effects which is so much different from all the other slimming  products I used.” – Nthabiseng, Phuthaditjhaba


It is not necessary to go on 'a fad diet' because appetite and cravings decrease as the Natru remedies repair body function. Eat a wide variety of fresh wholesome foods, and slowly but surely cut out junk food.

 

How do I use more than one remedy for slimming?

All the products are assisting the body's own healing processes. Weight loss will not take place faster by using more remedies at the same time because the body needs time to repair and heal. However, saying that, for most people 3 months is a good time period to use the remedies, because even if you haven't reached your goal weight by the end of the three months, enough repair work may have taken place for you to continue losing weight with the usual diet and exercise approach (this time period depends on how long you have been overweight and your general health condition).

The directions for use on all Natru products is to drink three times daily. However, if you have the Natru for Slimmers and the Natru Fat Loss Accelerator, then drink Natru for Slimmers twice a day (in the morning and at night) and the Natru Fat Loss Accelerator once a day (around midday). If you also have Natrurinec then this too should only be drunk once a day. So, the Natru Fat Loss Accelerator at around 11am and Natrurinec around 4pm.

Each person responds differently in the beginning, depending on your medical history, medication that you use and stress levels. Some people have lost 2 kgs in the first week and others put on weight in the first 10 days and the following explains why this happens.

Your body uses fat tissue as storage. When the fat tissue is broken down the stored toxins are released into the bloodstream. The quantity of toxins released depends on your history. If there is a flood of toxins, sometime your kidneys and other detoxification organs cannot completely clear the toxins from the blood so the body retains extra fluid to dilute the concentration and reduce the uncomfortable symptoms of detoxification. Once normality has returned in terms of toxicity levels, the body will remove the excess fluid too and your weight will come down on the scale.

So remember, fat and weight are not the same. Your body will start to break down fat tissue from the beginning but your weight may not come down until later into your programme. By following the above guideline you will prevent detoxification from taking place too fast, so your weight loss will be easier.  

 

Can I use Gourmet Slimmers with my chronic medication?  

You can use these Gourmet Slimmers together with any chronic medication because they do not chemically interact with any the medication, and at the same time they help to reduce the side effects of your chronic medication.   

 

Can I use Gourmet Slimmers with antibiotics? 

Yes, it is safe to use the products with antibiotics.

 

Can I use Gourmet Slimmers if I am allergic to certain foods and medicines? 

You cannot be allergic to Gourmet Slimmers products due to the unique way in which they are made. You can experience detoxification and regulation symptoms which pass as the repair work takes place. They help your whole health to improve as well as to lose weight easily and permanently.

 

Gourmet Slimmers Nutritionally Cleanses and Detoxifies


Detoxification is an essential yet little understood process that has to take place for weight loss to be healthy and long lasting.

The body uses fat tissue as storage for substances that it cannot remove because it hasn't got the time or energy. The more medicines and denatured food we take in, the more overloaded the body becomes. The liver has to break down these chemicals and the kidneys have to filter them out of the bloodstream so that they can be excreted in the urine. The other avenues of detoxification are the skin, nose and lungs.

From the moment you start to use Natru remedies, fat tissue is broken down and detoxification begins. If you have been on chronic medication for a long time, or have taken pain pills, antibiotics, sinus medication, the pill, HRT, antidepressants, etc.  there is a build up of these chemicals in your fat cells.

We know that chickens and cows that are given antibiotics and hormones are bad for us because of the remnants of these drugs in their produce. Humans also store medicines that they have been given, and the more chemicals you have been exposed to, the more you will feel the symptoms of detoxification when you start using Natru remedies for slimming.

The symptoms of detoxification can include:

 

  • Skin breakouts
  • Bloating, stomach pains
  • Headaches
  • Food cravings
  • Trouble sleeping, nightmares
  • Diarrhea and constipation
  • Fatigue, drowsiness, low energy levels
  • Irritability
  • Congestion or mucus that feels like a cold

Using Natru remedies is a much faster and easier way to detoxify than going on a juice fast or on a raw food diet. Your body detoxes while you live a normal lifestyle.

Keep taking your Natru remedies through the detoxification period to support organ function. Not everyone experiences detoxification symptoms, it just depends on how much toxicity is in your system. The symptoms pass as the toxins are excreted, your weight will come down, your energy will pick up and your appetite and cravings will go down - and as an added bonus your general health improves greatly as well.
