Adios Quick Slim is a low calorie strawberry flavoured milkshake designed to be used as a meal replacement. Each shake provides just 203 calories and dieters who decide to try losing some weigh the Adios Quick Slim way will be required to forsake two of their meals in favour of the shakes. Weight loss can be a long process though, so it would have been nice if a few alternative flavour options were available.
The Adios brand is owned by Diomed Developments Ltd. The company is based in the UK and produces a number of products that are household names, including Bazuka Gel and Ibuleve Gel. Most of their products are ointments and gels, so Quick Slim is a departure from the norm for Diomed.
How to Make the Shake
Each box of Adios Quick Slim contains 4 (35g) sachets. To make the Quick Slim shake one sachet should be added to 200ml of cold, skimmed milk and shaken until fully mixed. Some dieters may not own a shaker though, and may have to try and find an alternative way to mix the shake, so it is possible mixing the drink could be rather frustrating and/or messy for some users.
Diomed make no promise for Adios other than it can “help you lose weight for those little black dress or bikini occasions”. With a sales pitch like that, and the predominantly pink packaging, it appears Diomed have designed Adios especially for women, but there is no reason why male users could not use the shakes as well.
The amount of benefit experienced will probably vary from one user to the next. The average woman requires around 2,000 calories per day (men need about 2,500 cals). This is sufficient to maintain the present weight. Any extra calories will probably result in weight gain, whereas a lower calorie intake should encourage fat burning and weight loss.
At just 203 calories per shake, two shakes provide less than 25% of a female dieter’s calorie requirements so, if snacking is avoided and only one to two (healthy) meals are eaten each day, Quick Slim should help assist weight loss. But sticking to such a regimen may be hard because although Quick Slim contains plenty of vitamins and minerals, and is very nutritious, the shakes do not contain anything to provide appetite suppression.
Saccharose, powdered skimmed milk, milk proteins, powdered whey, maltodextrins, soya oil, thickeners (guar and xanthan and carob bean gums), strawberry powder (strawberry (dry extract) 40%, maltodextrin) 2%, fructo-oligosaccharides, beetroot concentrated juice, natural strawberry flavouring with other natural flavourings, colour (caramel E150c), vitamins (C, B3, E, B5, B2, B6, B1, B9, A, B8, D3, B12), minerals (magnesium carbonate, iron fumarate, zinc oxide, manganese sulphate, cupric sulphate, potassium iodide, sodium selenite), salt, emulsifier (soya lecithin), sweeteners (aspartame and potassium acesulfame), antioxidants (ascorbyl palmitate acid and alpha-tocopherol).
Side Effects & Health Issues
Several of the ingredients, including whey and soya, may be problematic for some users with allergies; so anyone who has reactions to certain foods should take careful note of the ingredients used.
Adios Quick Slim is not suitable for vegans because it is mixed with milk; and substituting the milk with water would make little difference because the powder itself contains milk protein.
Pregnant or nursing mothers should always consult their doctor before commencing any form of weight loss regimen or using supplements. The same advice is offered to people who have any health issues or concerns.
Customer feedback is mixed and appears to indicate Adios Quick Slim may work better for some users than others.
Purchasing Options & Considerations
Adios Quick Slim can be purchased in store and online from many retailers including Boots, Morrisons, Holland & Barrett, Rowlands Pharmacy, Tesco, and Superdrug.
There does not appear to be a money back guarantee.
The Bottom Line
Adios Quick Slim is a readily available product produced by a reputable manufacturer and, when used as part of a calorie controlled diet, the shakes will very probably help provide weight loss. They will not, however, help users to stick to their low calorie diets.
The blend contains no appetite suppressing ingredients, so fighting the desire to eat more food could be a constant battle for some shake users. Nor are there and energy boosting ingredients included in the blend to help negate the likelihood of dizziness, fatigue, and other symptoms of low blood sugar.
Adios Quick Slim is undoubtably a quality product, but there are many better dieting options available.
We are not avid fans of the meal replacement route, especially when you can eat a really healthy salad and fruit to get a more natural source of essential vitamins and minerals. The issue of macro nutrients can be dealt with portion control on regular meals.
Liquid replacement does not provide the sensory inputs we get from crunching and munching. Nor does it provide the satiety of healthy fats.
We are far more supportive of eating a complete diet but perhaps using the help of some appetite suppression and thermogenesis in a fat burner product. You can check out the best ones we have found by following the link below.
