FAQ

What is Skinny Sprinkles?

What are the active ingredients in Skinny Sprinkles?

The main active ingredients in Skinny Sprinkles are: Glucomannan (Konjac), Inulin, Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, Vitamin C, Niacin, Manganese. For more detailed information see nutritional information under the product listing.


How does Skinny Sprinkles work and why has it been dubbed by the Press as a “Gastric Band in a Glass”?

When Skinny Sprinkles reaches your stomach, its glucomannan content absorbs water and then expands, taking up extra space and consequently helping you to feel full. Some have likened this to a, “gastric band in a glass” because it reduces the amount of food you need to feel full. Meanwhile, added guarana, vitamin C and niacin combat tiredness and fatigue, giving you more energy to work out

Can I use Skinny Sprinkles if I am following a 5:2 diet?

Yes, but rather than us tell you let one of our Amazon customers tell you how she has used Skinny Sprinkles on the 5:2 diet:

“I've started using these as an easier way to get through 'fast' days on the 5:2 diet (eat normally 5 days, slash cals to 500/600 on the others - See the Michael Mosley book for its proven health benefits) and as a part meal replacement, because guess what - I like food, and don't like feeling hungry and craving stuff but I want to get that last stone off! If I very carefully balance my proteins, cut the fats/sugars and use bulk fillers like veggies, it's easy. However, life is sometimes too busy to do clean eating and sometimes you need a convenient shortcut - hence this”. 


How often do I eat when taking Skinny Sprinkles?

For maximum effect, you should take Skinny Sprinkles 3 times a day half an hour before a meal. How often you eat will depend upon which weight loss plan you are following.

We have received conflicting feedback with regard to IBS some customers have told us that Skinny Sprinkles has helped with their IBS because of the high fibre content whilst others have told us that it aggravates their IBS. Our advice is if you suffer from IBS just check with your GP or Health Practitioner first and then monitor how you feel once you start taking Skinny Sprinkles.

Will Skinny Sprinkles affect the contraceptive pill?

Skinny Sprinkles is high in Fibre and for some people who are not used to a high fibre diet it can have a laxative effect. The guidelines that come with the combined oral contraceptive pill say that if you have diarrhoea within four hours of taking it the effectiveness cannot be guaranteed, so you should be using additional precautions as well. To be certain check with your GP or Health Practitioner before taking.
