Just when you though innovation couldn’t get any bolder, along comes a new product that leaves you in, well, shock? Yeah, we think that’s the right word in this specific instance, and you’ll understand why in a minute.
“Cut sugar in 21 days with Slissie.” This is the tag line for the new “anti-snacking diet aid” called Slissie. In reality though, this product is more like a vape. It’s not an actual vape pen but we’re also not kidding about this being like a vape.
Okay, so again for starters, Slissie is not an actual vape pen. But, it sure looks like one, or at least a combination of a vapour device and a container of nail polish. So how does it work then? Great question. Imagine you are hungry. You do what any human being would do – find something to eat. The issue with this is that with so many people these days being physically inactive, many of them tend to gain a lot of weight. Eating 4, 5, 6, or even 7 or 8 meals per day isn’t necessarily bad for you. But, you need to be active in order to counter the calorie intake. Of course, most people aren’t familiar with their local gym.
Show of hands here: how many of you eat two meals per day and still gain weight? Most of you – just like we thought.
That’s where Slissie comes in. By using a base mix of mint, fruit and vanilla olfactory stimulants, Slissie can aid in appetite suppression and weight loss. This is apparently backed up by a scientific study by Dr. S.N. Mayer, Dr. R.S. Davidson and Dr. C.B. Hensley of the Human Neuro-Sensory Laboratory in Washington, D.C.
How it Works:
So, Slissie was designed to be very user friendly, and we wouldn’t have expected anything else. It works in 3 ways:
- Curbs Cravings. Appetite suppressing flavours help you resist temptation.
- Behavioural Distraction. Hand to mouth eating style action provides a calorie free alternative to snacking.
- Cognitive Reassurance. Over time, bad snacking associations can be broken and new healthier behaviours made.
In short: it’s essentially a vape pen with flavour but without actual vapour. It simply releases flavours into your mouth. While we would expect many people to initially mock it, don’t do that until you try it. There are already numerous YouTubers who have admitted to enjoying it. Watch the preview to what the product is and how it work.
