The key difference compared to conventional medicines is that medical devices work mechanically as opposed to pharmacologically. So it works alongside, or with the body rather than affecting the chemistry of the human cells.

    There are two reasons why XLS-Medical is not encouraged during pregnancy.

    What is XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder?

    Made with clinically proven fat binder LitramineTM, XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder binds up to 28% of dietary fats in your stomach. Its unique formula works two ways: it first binds fat molecules to form a fat-fibre complex too large to be absorbed by the intestine, before releasing fat-soluble vitamins into the body.

    Just remember, as with any high fibre diet, consume plenty of water throughout the day and don't take more than three sachets in 24 hours.

    How do I use XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder?

    We recommend you take one XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder after breakfast, lunch and dinner. Only as an exception should you take two sachets if you have a particularly high fat content meal. Just remember it is not recommended to exceed more than three sachets a day and the sooner you take your sachets after your meal, the sooner XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder can get to work.

    Its main function is to reduce the absorption of dietary fat. XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder binds with these fats to form a sticky fat-fibre complex which is too large to pass through the wall of the small intestine. As a result some dietary fat is left undigested and are excreted naturally when you go to the toilet.

    Because of its fat-binding properties, XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder reduces the rate at which food leaves the stomach. It also keeps your blood sugar levels from rising too quickly, so you can feel fuller for longer with less cravings for sugary foods.

    If you consume 500 calories a day fewer than the recommended intake and take XLS-Medical Direct Fat Binder according to the instructions, you should be able to lose approximately three times as much weight as you would've done through dropping the calories alone after just 12 weeks*.

    The instructions say to add oil to the Vanilla shake, but not the Chocolate or Strawberry Shakes. Why is this?

    Adding oil to your XLS-Nutrition Vanilla shake allows your body to absorb the necessary fat-soluble vitamins and provides you with the additional nutrients you need as part of a meal replacement. You do not need to add oil to the Chocolate or Strawberry Shakes because they have a slightly different formulation to the Vanilla Shake and contain the necessary fats required.

    Why is it recommended to use oil in the preparation of a XLS-Nutrition shake?

    The body needs fats for optimal care alongside carbohydrates and proteins. The recommendation is to use vegetable oil with a high level of unsaturated fatty acids such as sunflower, safflower, rapeseed, olive or grape seed oil.

    Can I pre-mix XLS-Nutrition in the morning and use it in the afternoon?

    XLS-Nutrition tastes the best when it’s freshly made. However, you can prepare XLS-Nutrition a few hours before consumption. Keep the shake cool until use and shake again briefly before serving.

    Can I heat my XLS-Nutrition shake?

    We recommend not heating it as it can destroy the vitamins in the shake. XLS-Nutrition tastes its best when shaken and served cold or at room temperature.

    Is XLS-Nutrition clinically proven?

    XLS-Nutrition is a meal replacement. Meal replacements have a proven clinical efficacy for weight loss and weight maintenance and are accepted by health care professionals as a weight loss method.  

    Can I have snacks whilst using XLS-Nutrition? If so, what types and how many?

    Everyone has different calorie requirements depending on their shape, genes, daily activity, age and gender. The important thing to remember is that you are creating a calorie deficit in order to facilitate weight loss, the greater the deficit the more weight you will lose. But is it important to ensure you are getting the macro and micronutrients your body needs.

    Our general guideline is to snack on fruits and vegetables when you feel hungry between meals. Non-starchy vegetables (this does not include peas, corn, sweet potato and butternut squash) are unlimited and fruits should be limited to 3 a day. Very low calorie meals like thin soups are allowed if you feel the need (recipes and ideas for other low calorie meals can be found here ).

    Why do you burn fat with XLS-Nutrition?

    Using XLS-Nutrition as a meal replacement helps create a calorie deficit. Since these calories are suddenly not available, the body takes them out of its fat reserves. At the same time, the body continues to be supported by the high quality protein, which supports muscle mass.

    Will I gain the weight back when I come off the XLS-Nutrition Diet plan?

    The great thing about losing weight with XLS-Nutrition is that you lose weight but the high level of proteins means you provide your muscles with the nutrition they need to ensure they are maintained.

    The XLS-Nutrition diet is a good moment to ‘reset’ and learn new nutritional habits, it is important to continue with a healthy lifestyle & eat sensibly after your XLS-Nutrition diet to avoid gaining weight again. You can continue to use XLS-Nutrition as a weight management tool after you reach your goal, for example by replacing lunch with XLS-Nutrition when you’re going to have a big dinner that evening.
