Yes! Konjac has been consumed in Japan for thousands of years, far before the advent of fad diets and ‘miracle’ weight loss products. This makes Slim products not just satisfying for your stomach, but foods that can actually help you lose weight! Their fibre content aids in digestion, and they’re even safe for most special-needs diets such as those for diabetics and Coeliacs. Konjac contains glucomannan. Glucomannan, as part of a calorie-controlled diet, contributes to weight loss. The way to this weight loss is a daily intake of 3g glucomannan, spread through three doses of 1g each (which is why 33g Slim Pasta® provides 1g glucomannan). 1-2 glasses of water MUST be taken with glucomannan, before calorie-controlled meals. Always accompany it with plenty of water, as there is a risk of choking for people with swallowing difficulties or those who consume it with inadequate fluid.
