Does Plexus Slim Really Work? A Review and Giveaway.


If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you know that I TRY, most of the time, to be a snob about what we put into our bodies, ever since my little Annie was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

I've done some crazy things in the name of better health...

Brewed my own kombucha.

Juiced carrots for breakfast.

I make my own dishwasher detergent. Make my own baby wipes.

skin brush.oil pull.

Even gone so far as to - and I've never admitted this in public - wash my hair with baking soda and Apple Cider Vinegar. Yes. It's true. I'm weird, ok? It makes your hair SO incredibly thick and healthy... but that's another blog post.

But when a Facebook friend, Kristen, messaged me about this great new product that was supposedly helping people drop pounds by the bushel basket, and EASILY, I was so far beyond SKEPTICAL.... I was repulsed.


Yes, I will swish coconut oil between my teeth. But do NOT contact me about some SCHEME*. Gosh. And furthermore, anything that works THAT WELL is bound to be some scary* chemical* stuff with horrific side effects* and WHAT IS SHE THINKING?


I told her NO, of course, and would have tossed her straight out of my Facebook friends list like the Soup Nazi tossed Elaine out onto the street... but I do kind of like her; she just had that one lapse of judgement that time, apparently.

What intrigued me, though, was that this was one of my 'crunchiest' Facebook friends.

WAY more of a nutrition snob than I ever thought about being.

Like, among the top tier of my nutrition heroes, even. I knew she wouldn't try this unless it REALLY WAS A GOOD THING.

And she seemed pretty sold on it. I couldn't stop thinking about it.


But I kept saying no, all the while posting on Facebook about my adrenal fatigue... my exhaustion... my total lack of energy.... my inability to sleep at night... and my depression about NOT BEING ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT NO MATTER HOW FAITHFULLY I STUCK TO THE PLAN.

I was caught in a vicious cycle: diet really hard, diet doesn't work, get depressed about diet not working, eat a cookie to make me feel better, gain one pound. Repeat.

Another friend, Brenda, took pity and sent me a 30-day supply of Slim in the mail because she is awesome and believed she had something that would help with it ALL. Thank you, Brenda; I might not have ever known...

I tried Plexus slim for a month. It's easy enough; you mix one packet of powder with one bottle of water and drink it once a day before breakfast. No shakes. No meal replacements. No melba toast.

That's it. 

Honestly, I felt worse at first... even more tired. Achy. Headachy. And did I mention tired? 

But on day four the cloud lifted and I felt... GOOD.

Energy, nothing too phenomenal, but still.... energy where I had had none before.

I continued to take the Plexus slim for a month, thinking, "my apologies, Brenda, but I'm still not doing this..."'

And then I ran out of Plexus Slim.

You know the saying, "You don't know what you got 'til it's gone?" THAT. With the Plexus Slim out of my system, I crashed again. I was grouchy, moody, irritable, and EXHAUSTED. I don't think I realized how bad I felt until I felt good, and didn't realize how good I felt until I felt bad again. AND I HATED FEELING BAD. Where was the 'me' who used to work two jobs? Or work full time while going to school at night? I MISSED HER AND I WANTED HER BACK.

And that did it. 

I knew I had to have Plexus Slim in my life. I LOVED the feeling of stable blood sugar, the good moods, the ENERGY, and LOVED how THIS finally seemed to be the THING that will bring an end to my YEARS of adrenal fatigue

As far as weight loss, I've watched friends drop so much weight so quickly. I haven't noticed much weight loss, myself, yet. I've only been on Plexus eight weeks or so, and I have MANY years of adrenal damage to undo; that didn't come on overnight, and it won't go away overnight. BUT IT IS HEALING, and I know this because.... 


  • I have MASSIVE energy. The longer I'm on Plexus, the better I feel. I have more energy now than I did at week 2 or week 6; it keeps compounding. I HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY THAT I HAVE WORKED OUT the past couple of weeks. I used to LOVE exercise; I just haven't been able to GO enough to make that happen the last few years. 



  • I'm SLEEPING. And by sleeping, I mean at NIGHT, because...

  • I'm not NAPPING anymore. Not even the mandatory Sunday nap. Which is UNHEARD of for me.... even back in the day when I had normal energy levels, before adrenal fatigue, I HAD to take a nap on Sunday. I skipped my nap yesterday and NEVER MISSED IT.

  • I'm not craving sugar. I made Michael a batch of peanut butter cookies this week and didn't even eat one. NO DESIRE.


And because of those three phenomenal changes in my life, I KNOW THE WEIGHT LOSS WILL FOLLOW. I KNOW I have enough energy to do what I have to do to get there... but the thing is, I'm so HAPPY right now that I don't even care. Well, let's not go that far. I do care. But I'm no longer caught in that downward spiral of self-pity and weight gain.

*And it turns out I was totally wrong... it's not a 'scheme;' there are all-natural ingredients; the only side effects I've experienced have been good ones. 

And I would LOVE to share this amazing product with YOU. Ever since I wrote the blog post about adrenal fatigue, I've received literally dozens of emails asking for help. I KNOW I have many readers who are where I was. So if I can spread the love like my dear Brenda did for me, I want that. 

So with that in mind I'm offering two things: 1) I'm giving away a Plexus slim trial pack, and 2) EVERYONE who orders from my Plexus website in the month of June will be entered to win a 30-day pack of Plexus slim. 

If you'd like to give it a try, a 3-day trial is available here (my Ambassador number is 251128, if you need that info) and shipping is free (and you will be entered to win the month's supply). Don't wait. Feel better today! Because WHAT IF THIS IS THE LAST THING YOU EVER HAVE TO TRY?! And GOOD LUCK.

I keep hearing wonderful things about it. I have fibromyalgia and that makes me exhausted. Plus I've been doing the diet yo yo thing for far too long as well.

Melissa Taylor said...

I would love to try Plexus Slim to see if it can help me lose weight. I just turned 50 and don't want to live the rest of my life like this.

Melissa Taylor said...

If it could help me with what I think is adrenal fatigue, that would be wonderful. I wouldn't mind if it kickstarted more weightloss eventhough I am in a very healthy range and lost over 20lbs with THM.

Melissa Taylor said...

I've never heard of this but I am interested in losing weight in a healthy, not-weird way. :)

Melissa Taylor said...

It IS a wonderful product Tiffany!! I met a woman this weekend whose fibromyalgia was SO bad she couldn't function. Plexus has totally helped her not to have any flare ups!! I've heard so many testimonials saying the same thing! Stable blood sugar is the key to SO MUCH!! And it should stop that yoyo diet pattern for good because your blood sugar will be STABLE and your cravings should be reduced. I'm glad you entered!!

Melissa Taylor said...

That's where I was too Staci. I don't want to struggle anymore! Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog.

Melissa Taylor said...

It's helped me personally, and my friend Brenda whom I know personally, and so many others.

Melissa Taylor said...

I am a believer in Plexus being healthy and 'not weird.' LOL! It's one drink a day. NO shakes. No meal replacements. No lemonade/cayenne pepper cleanses. Totally doable and totally pleasant.

So, so happy to hear that ALL 3 of your kids are healthy! I know how that feels! :o)

Melissa Taylor said...

I just started THM last week and stumbled across your blog. I love it! I'm going to make those cheddar garlic rolls to go along with our burgers for tonight. So excited!

I've also been dealing with being tired. I'm assuming it's a detox from starting THM. So far I've been using essential oils, lemon and peppermint, to help. Seems to be working! I'm thinking about the Plexus though. You can never have too much of a good thing!

Melissa Taylor said...

My metabolism is wrecked from years of yo-yo dieting!Two years ago I was competing in a fitness competition, and now I'm the weight I was after just having a baby. Yikes. It'd be nice just to stabilize my blood sugar to give my body a chance of mending!

I saw a friend post about how great she was feeling and was completely off her fibromyalgia medicine! I am hypothyroid and would love to try this product!

Melissa Taylor said...

Just started the mood cure regime and am interested in anything that helps me feel like "me" again. Am loving your blog, btw! :)

Melissa Taylor said...

I would love to drop a few pounds!

Melissa Taylor said...

Plexus works hand in hand with Trim Healthy Mama, Jill! It stabilizes your blood sugar to eliminate cravings, and can help you work through that detox faster. Stable blood sugar is what THM is all about!

Melissa Taylor said...

Yes januarywins!! I've heard so many testimonials that say that same thing... fibromyalgia pain, GONE!! It's one of my favorite things about Plexus.... not so much the weight loss, but how GOOD it makes people feel. Stable blood sugar affects EVERYTHING! If you want to talk more about plexus email me! melissabeenetaylor@gmail.com

Melissa Taylor said...

I would love to see you give plexus a try Stephanie! It's given me SO much energy that I'm thinking about going back to school myself. ;)

Melissa Taylor said...

Plexus has helped lots of people do that Elizabeth!

Melissa Taylor said...

I've been struggling to lose weight since I weaned my oldest daughter - and these days my energy levels are awful. I'm so tired by the middle of the day I could just lay my head on my desk and sleep!

Melissa Taylor said...

I've seen several people comment that they are on THM. THM says not to use this product? Does anyone know why? I am on THM and just started using plexus so just curious if it has an ingredient that is not plan approved?

Melissa Taylor said...

Can you provide a link to the supplements or a list? This sounds like my problem as well. And after reading the THM book (which is HUGE), I do not have spare time to read more books. Starting to give up - only lost 4.5 lbs on THM so far (at least 2 months of doing it). What's even worse is that I have found myself extra tired and angry about any and everything lately. This is so not me...... :( Thanks, Natalie

What a great testimony. I WOULD LOVE TO USE IT. I just started Plexus and want to make it a life style and business.
