The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has ordered the recall, seizure, and ban of 26 slimming products found to contain amphetamine (stimulant and an appetite suppressant), sibutramine , and steroids.
In a circular, FDA acting Director Suzette Lazo said these “slimming products are not registered and not approved or authorized by this office to be sold in the market.” The slimming products are sold in the form of capsules and slimming coffee.
The banned products are:
1. Ballet Dancer Fat Reducing
2. Bio-Lissom Fat Reducing
3. Brazilian Slimming Coffee
4. Cell Life Slimming Coffee
5. Elegant Shape Fat Reducing
6. Goodliness Fat Reducing
8. Leisure 18 Slimming Coffee
9. Lightness Fat Reducing
10. Maggie Fitness Essence
11. Mei Shen Ting Anti-Obesity
12. Modeling Fat-Reducing
13. New Original Lightness Fat-Reducing
14. Pearl White Slimming
15. Perfect Figure Slimming
16. Perfect Slim Fat Reduction Cosmetic
17. Perfect Slim Purely Natural Fat Reduction Cosmetic
18. Pill for Weight Reduction
19. Pretty Model
20. Qiaomei Fat Binder
21. Qi Xian Nu
22. Seven Days Miracle
23. Shaping Body Fat Loss
24. Slim and Beauty Slimming
25. Slim Up Extra Whitening and Reducing
26. Xianzimei Fat Reduction
FDA said it tested these products and found that they contained amphetamine, which the agency said is a dangerous drug; sibutramine, which was already withdrawn from the market; and steroid, a prescription drug.
“FDA’s findings through laboratory tests showed the presence of amphetamine, sibutramine, or steroids, either singly or in combination with each other, in the above products,” Lazo said.
She warned that these slimming products “pose imminent danger or injury to the consuming public and the importation, selling or offering for sale of such is in direct violation of Republic Act No. 9711 or the Food and Drug Administration Act of 2009.”
Lazo ordered FDA officers all over the country to “seize immediately the above identified products from all outlets or establishments where they may be found for custody and proper disposition.”
The FDA list shows that most of these products came from China.

I mentioned in my blog post 6 days ago that almost all slimming products have side effects.
Don’t risk your health just because you want to save money.
Go Natural! Eat your leafy greens and fruits. Drink at least 12 glasses of water. Allot at least 1 hour of Physical Acitivity.
Good thing, I found Optrimax Plum Delite—natural plum fruit, pickled with Green tea, Pu-er tea and Probiotics. =) Safe. Natural. Effective!
So today is my Round 4 of Detoxification by taking Optrimax Plum Delite! I weigh myself first thing in the morning and guess what?
I LOST 8 FREAKING POUNDS! ZUP WITH THAT PEOPLE?
Yes really! I asked my husband to double check if I am not hallucinating. He also checked our weighing scale if it is working properly! HAHA
From 180lbs down to 172lbs. in 4 days! BOOOMM!
I agree with you Mr. President. Of course, you should take Optrimax Plum Delite with proper Nutrition and Hydration! Drink 12-14 glasses a day! Live in Nutrition Solution Lifestyle!
So far so good! At last I found a natural and safe weight loss product! Hooray to Optrimax Plum Delite!
I’ve been a chubby girl ever since I was a kid. Like any other girls I wanted to be fit and yes… sexy. (HAHA). I have Zero% discipline on eating. I don’t eat vegetables (My reason back then was “those green little veggies are for animals”) I feel nauseous when I eat vegetables. SERIOUSLY. Go ask my mom about it, this is her Facebook account. Everyday I manage to find an excuse to eat ice cream! HAHAHA! I don’t exercise, you will find me sitting in front of my computer all the time.
Extreme weight Gain:
From 148lbs. to 198lbs. (50 freaking pounds), I extremely gained weight when I went back to work as Post Production Supervisor in 2010. My lifestyle then was KATUTRA. Kain. Tulog. Trabaho! Meaning with Sedentary (minimum/no physical activity) plus eating lots of JUNK food (Processed foods, Fast food, Desserts, etc.)
Turning point & Attempts on Losing weight:
One day I realized that I can’t work properly anymore. I was having a hard time on catching up (literally) with my colleagues, Hindi na ako makatakbo (which is a MUST kapag sa TV Production ka nagtatrabaho), as well as playing with my son, strolling to the mall, etc. I also had GOUT, to the point I have to use “cane” in order to walk. Until I asked my boss to allow me to work home-based.
Like you, I have tried almost all the slimming products I’ve read in forums, ads, etc. From Xenical, to Fashion Slimming Coffee. NAME IT! Yes it will help you lose weight easily by suppressing your appetite with lots of side effects like palpitations, lightheadedness, etc. Slimming pills are like medicines that treats only the symptoms, NOT the certain disease that you want to get rid of.
Thanks to Nutrition Solution Lifestyle I’ve learned that you NEED and you MUST equip yourself with proper Nutrition, Detoxification and Exercise in order to achieve optimum Health. “It’s not diet, It’s a complete change of Lifestyle.”
Steps on Managing your Weight:
By following this I dropped 18lbs. NATURALLY! As of August 30, 2012 I weigh 180lbs.
So, I discovered this product for detoxification and cleansing your body. It is called Optrimax Plum Delite. It promotes healthy bowel movement for the removal of chemicals and waste from your digestive system.
So…What do I like about this product? It is 100% natural, (LIKE A BOSS!) in a form of a Plum fruit, pickled with Probiotics, green tea and Pu-er Tea – perfect food to add in your Nutrition Solution Lifestyle.
I’ve learned in Nutrition Solution Lifestyle that it is a MUST to read Food labels first!
Optrimax Plum Delite contains the following:
Pretty neat, eh?
Preparation: Just open the sachet and eat the plum but do not swallow the pit of the plum!(common sense, haha!) For best results take 1 Plum after Dinner for 5 days and drink at least 12 glasses of water a day.
Caution: Not recommended for children, pregnant or nursing women or anyone with gastrointestinal conditions.
This is my first day to eat this PLUM.
Let’s see if this will work. HAHAHA!
