At Skinlogic, we make use of the Slender Wonder and Reakiri Lifestyle programmes.

What is Slender Wonder?

Slender Wonder is a medical weight loss programme that treats patients who are overweight or obese. Only Slender Wonder accredited doctors, who were trained by the organization, are allowed to prescribe and distribute the programme.

Slender Wonder was developed by a South African doctor, Dr Jan Botha and has more than 200 accredited doctors countrywide. Their safe and effective weight loss programme has evolved over 40 years with tens of thousands of patients being treated successfully in South Africa.

The programme is based on treating low leptin levels and has three components: a low GI eating plan, supplements in the form of capsules and a series of injections. The injections bring the leptin levels back into balance and help rid the body of “abnormal” fat in a safe and controlled way.

What is leptin?

Leptin is a hormone that is secreted by fat cells in white adipose tissue and has been found to be a signal to the brain, thus having primary influence on body weight. During a person’s lifetime, leptin levels drop. This drop may be accredited to the use of cortisone or the presence of progesterone and estrogen. For this reason, some young girls are prone to obesity during puberty. Women who are taking contraceptives, pregnant women and those who have had hysterectomies, especially when it goes together with hormone replacement therapy, are also prone to lower levels of Leptin.

Treating the symptoms and putting patients on a strict diet may work. However, if the leptin levels are not stabilized first, patients will put the weight back on once they start eating normally again. This is what makes the Slender Wonder programme different from other weight loss programmes.

Slender Wonder focuses on the cause of obesity and not only the symptoms!

Are there any stimulants in Slender Wonder’s supplements?

None of the product ingredients contain any stimulants.

Will I have to continue using the Slender Wonder supplements when I’ve reached my goal weight?

No, we will advise you when to stop taking your supplements.

What if I have Diabetes or other health problems?

The Slender Wonder program has helped many people to improve their blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels and general health.

What if I travel /eat out a lot?

We will give you solutions and suggestions – it’s about making correct choices.

Will I ever be able to eat ‘normally’ again?

Yes, within certain limitations.

Do I have to buy ‘special foods’?

No, it’s normal food that you can buy at normal grocery stores.

Do I have to cook separately for me and the rest of my family?

No, not necessarily. They can all benefit from eating more healthily! – It’s really GOOD FOOD!

What if I ‘cheat’?

You will slow down the weight-loss, however, once you get back onto the plan, you will start losing again.

How does this plan differ from all the others?

The underlying cause of overweight is being treated and this leads to DEEP LASTING CHANGE. You will also have support from Skinlogic and Slender Wonder.

Can I use Slender Wonder while I am breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding patients can do the programme; they must not do the detox phase and no Herbaboost should be taken as the possible effects of these herbs may have on infants have not been properly researched. All other supplements (except Lipo-Lite Drops) are safe to use during breastfeeding. Slender Wonder’s official stance is to rather not initiate the programme during the first three months after birth – apart from possible medical reasons this is to give mother and baby time to bond and not to place unnecessary stress on the mother during this critical developmental phase.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Depending on the patient’s starting weight, most individuals lose up to 4 – 7 kg’s in the first month. Once you reach the maintenance phase, your leptin sensitivity will have been restored and this will help you to maintain your new weight provided you continue to follow a healthy lifestyle!

How does the Reakiri Lifestyle Programme work?

With this programme, a Paleolithic eating approach is followed with the emphasis on natural, whole foods and intermittent fasting. Optional MIC injections are available to enhance results.
