Starting My Weight Loss Journey with Power 4 (P4) Healthy Slimming Program

This was one of the products that I initially used in my attempt to lose weight. Unfortunately, I started out poorly like many of you out there. I thought it was enough for me to consume Red Yeast Coffee and CoCollagen to lose weight.

After several months of consuming these two products, I thought I should also try Splina Liquid Chlorophyll and Shake-off Phyto Fibre. I took Shake-off Phyto Fibre for 1 week and Splina Liquid Chlorophyll for close to 3 weeks and after noticing that I wasn’t losing weight, I finally gave up.

Now the truth is, many of us make mistakes when it comes to following a weight loss regimen. Indeed, Edmark has a program called the Power 4 Healthy Slimming Program, which you have to follow to achieve effective weight loss and maintain your weight.

The video below describes the 4-step approach toward slimming and overall fitness with the Power 4 Healthy Slimming Program.

It wasn’t until I learned about the program and tried it that I started seeing results. Below I describe what you should expect when you’re taking these products and also rate the product (based on my experience).

Shake Off Phyto Fiber

This is a colon cleanser that you have to take every day for 7 days when you start the program.

Pros

  • The new Shake Off Phyto Fiber tastes much better than the former one. It has a rich lemon taste compared with the previous one, which tasted like straw.
  • I typically experienced the effects of the product (loose bowel movement) at least 8 hours after taking it. Don’t worry, you won’t become dehydrated, as the effect lasts less than half an hour.

Cons

  • If you hate having abdominal cramps, watch out. Shake Off Phyto Fiber can really shake your tummy nuts when it starts flushing out the contents of your colon.
  • You have to mix the powder with water and drink the mixture immediately as directed or you’ll end up with a thick paste that looks like baby poop if you accidentally forget your drink. Happened to me twice when I was distracted by my kids.

Verdict

Shake Off Phyto Fiber actually cleanses your colon, but the abdominal cramping that accompanies the process makes me give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Red Yeast Coffee & Ginseng Coffee

Pros

  • Needless to repeat the health benefits of coffee, which have been reported in several studies. Red Yeast & Ginseng coffee are both rich in anti-oxidants.
  • Both products don’t contain sugar, which is a plus since this is one the things that you should ditch from your diet if you want to maintain your weight in the long-term.
  • They taste ‘fabulicious’. Just the aroma makes you want to take more the moment you empty your cup.

Cons

  • None except that they are a little pricey for the average income earner. If you have to consume these products as recommended in the P4 Healthy Slimming Program, one packet of either Red Yeast Coffee or Ginseng Coffee won’t last more than 2 weeks.

Verdict

These two get a 5 out of 5 because of their rich taste and flavor (besides their nutritional benefit).



Splina Liquid Chlorophyll

This is a thick greenish liquid that comes in a plastic 500 mL bottle.

Pros

  • It is a rich source of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.
  • It doesn’t contain sugar.

Cons

  • It tastes really horrible (my opinion). In fact, there were times I wished I could skip this after meals.

Verdict

I gave this 3 on 5 because of the bad aftertaste. In fact, there’re other sources of anti-oxidants that taste better and I wish this didn’t have to be part of the slimming program.

MRT Complex

This is a rich drink meant to be an energy-booster—the guy who replaces your meals so that you can effectively lose weight without suffering from hunger pangs.

Pros

  • It is rich in proteins and vitamins.
  • It is low in calories.
  • It is delicious. I tried two flavors and, in my opinion, the chocolate flavor tasted like hemoglobin syrup (seriously!!!). I really loved the vanilla flavor.

Cons

  • I thought MRT Complex was supposed to calm my cravings for food, but while I was taking it, I had several hunger pangs than I could count and had to consume more of the product (than recommended in the program) to calm my rumbling tummy.
  • For someone who has gastritis, I wouldn’t recommend this to a gastritis patient. I had more acute gastritis crises during the program, which I associated with MRT Complex. The product itself doesn’t cause gastritis, but I don’t think it can replace meals since I got hungry less than 2 hours after consuming the product.
  • It’s relatively expensive for an average income earner.

Verdict

I gave this 3 out of 5 because I didn’t really feel it gave me the energy I needed until my next meal.

Overall

Four-Star RatingThe P4 Healthy Slimming Program can actually help you lose weight if you follow their recommendations strictly. I lost 2 Kg after 2 weeks although I sometimes had to eat regular meals (instead of the meal replacement product MRT Complex) when I had acute gastritis. But like everything else, you have to invest a little budget and stay motivated and focused to achieve your goals.

    on the average how long do you think one can take these supplements before one can satisfactorily say it works and how much frankly should be budgeted for someone that needs to lose so much weight?

    • Princila says:

      Hi Toyin,

      My apologies for the late response.

      You need to take these for at least one month to lose weight. If you currently live in Saudi Arabia, you can get the P4 Healthy Slimming products for about 685 SR. However, if you register as a member, you can get a generous discount.

    Hello .I’m determined to start this .actually I wanted to start them on this August but am working on field till 23rd September and I want to start them once I done with the field work .I’ve planned to buy 4 packages and 4 co collagen so that I won’t have excess skin .I’m currently weighting 110kgs and I want to loose like 50kgs As I want 60kgs .I’m in Rwanda i want to order in Tanzania that’s why I want to buy all 4 packages at once so that it reduces the transport cost i dont know if keeping them for 80ddays at home will not be a problem .let me know what u think.

    • Princila says:

      Hello Suzan,

      To the best of my knowledge, EDMARK products have a shelf life of one year, so I don’t think it would be a problem if you keep them at home for 80 days. However, you should check the expiry date on the package once your products are delivered.

      Tip: I noticed I lost more weight when I exercised while taking these products.

      Will be great to know how it works for you.

      Cheers!

      • Suzan Ingabire says:

        Thank you I will surely update you and am ready to exercise .do you think those 4 packages will help.me at least to loose like 50kgs? As they say that one package can help to loose 15kgs in 21 days .what do you know about co collagen .I wish I can ask you many questions. Dont be bored

        • Princila says:

          I’m not sure about the 50 Kg claim. When I used this, I lost on average about 1 kg per week. Losing 15 Kg in 21 days should require a strict workout routine in addition to consuming EDMARK products.

          Besides, I don’t think losing 15 Kg in 21 days is a healthy goal. Have you checked with your doctor to verify whether what you’re trying to achieve is safe? Here’s a famous quote from Dr. Jaideep Behari, associate professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine:
          “Aim to achieve and improve health and reach a psychologically ‘happy weight,’ not an unrealistic ‘ideal’ weight that may be impossible to reach for most.”

          Regarding Cocollagen, the name says it all. This EDMARK product is rich in collagen, and there are several benefits associated with the consumption of collagen. You can read about this here: https://www.edmarkwellness.com/cocollagen.html

          Best of luck!
