Prepare it as it says on the box and it works

With all these sorts of products, you have to use it as it is designed. This is a product that is designed to swell and take up room in your stomach, not in a glass. Put 250ml of cold water in a glass, add the slim sip sachet and stir for about 20 seconds and then drink it in one go. I know it is called Slim sip, but don't sip it! You need to get it in your stomach before it starts turing into a solid mass. This is the whole point of the product. It swells and fills up your stomach so when you come to eat you are already partly full and so eat less. When you drink it, the product should still be fizzy and I find it a very pleasant orange taste. If you are having problems stirring it or it's gone thick then you have left it to long. Mix it and down it! Then wash down with another glass of water to ensure it works in your stomach correctly, I have only been using this for a couple of days and haven't yet finished a meal since taking Slim sip. If this isn't working for you then you are either consuming it incorrectly or have already stretched your stomach significantly and so need to cut down your serving sizes even more so. I have also found that 20 minutes before eating is sufficient for this to work. Just make sure you do drink enough water for it to work. The only negative is that you will visit the toilet more frequently until you get used to the extra fibre in your diet. I have been assured this will settle down and is not a bad thing. All I would say is don't sip, stir and down it!
