dōTERRA Slim & Sassy TrimShake is a convenient and delicious weight management shake mix providing essential nutrients and only an average of 68 calories per serving. Blended with nonfat dairy, almond, rice, or soy milk, or water, TrimShake can be used as part of a weight-loss strategy of reducing daily caloric intake and burning fat stores through exercise. Slim & Sassy® TrimShake includes the patented weight-loss ingredient Essentra®Trim, which has been clinically demonstrated to help manage cortisol—a stress hormone associated with fat storage in the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Slim & Sassy TrimShake now includes Solathin®, a special protein extract from natural food sources that supports an increased feeling of satiety.* Available in natural chocolate and vanilla flavors, TrimShake blends well with water or milk and provides 8 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber per serving.
A lean, trim body composition is a reflection of a healthy lifestyle that includes eating right and staying physically active. Eating right includes both eating appropriate quantities of food and eating quality foods that include a healthy ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins and minerals. A healthy diet of fresh, whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins provides the body with the resources for energy production, growth, and immune and other metabolic functions.
Too much food can be unhealthy. Fat cells function as the body’s energy storage units. Excess calories that are not converted to energy or used as building blocks for growth and repair can be converted to and stored as lipids in fat cells. When the body has used other more readily available energy stores, fat cells release stored lipids as fuel for energy metabolism. Maintaining a lean body composition requires storing fewer excess calories in fat cells and increasing the release of calories stored in fat cells to be used for energy production. In other words, to keep fit and trim we need to eat less and exercise more. We also need to eat smarter.
Lean Nutrient Ratios
A lean diet should include moderate portions of a variety of healthy nutrients. Simple carbohydrates or sugars and fats are immediate sources of energy, but they are also easily converted to fat when they are consumed in excess. They also trigger the release of insulin, which, although necessary for energy production, is also a catalyst for converting excess calories to fat when we overeat. Complex carbohydrates and fibers provide a more sustained source of energy and help to lower the insulin response. Proteins are used primarily for growth and repair in the body and can also be used for energy.
Although there is no agreement on a perfect ratio of nutrients in a lean diet, a healthy diet should include about 30 percent proteins, 55 percent carbohydrates, and 15 percent fats. Unfortunately, many people eat far too many fats and carbohydrates and not enough protein as reflected in the growing epidemic of obesity in many parts of the world. A simple guide for eating a more healthy ratio of nutrients is eating less simple carbohydrates or sugars, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, eating less oils and fats, and increasing the consumption of healthy, low-calorie sources of protein. Of these lean diet choices, finding optimal levels of healthy proteins may be the most challenging.
Slim & Sassy® TrimShake
Making the decision to eat fewer calories and to eat a healthier ratio of calories is the first step to losing weight and maintaining a lean body composition. Yet today’s fast-pace, mobile lifestyle often makes it challenging to prepare or select lean meals. The dōTERRA Slim & Sassy TrimShake is convenient and delicious. When mixed with nonfat dairy, almond, rice, or soy milk, or water, it provides the essential nutrients, is high in fiber, is low in fat and sugar, and includes a blend of essential vitamins and minerals.
TrimShake also provides 8 grams of a proprietary protein blend of whey isolate and egg white protein that provides essential amino
acids to help prevent loss of muscle mass and improve muscle tone during dieting and exercise.*
TrimShake does not contain any protein or isolates from soy, nor does it contain any artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, or preservatives.
Slim & Sassy TrimShake also includes 125 mg per serving of the powerful weight-loss ingredient EssentraTrim®, a patented extract of ashwagandha leaves and roots that has been clinically demonstrated to support weight loss. Originally studied as an adaptogen for energy production, EssentraTrim® was shown to help control the release of the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with the accumulation of fat, particularly around the stomach, hips, and thighs. EssentraTrim® has also been demonstrated to help control stress- induced appetite, overeating, and carbohydrate cravings. It also helps support blood sugar levels already in the normal range and enhances energy levels while helping to alleviate fatigue commonly associated with dieting and exercise.*
Slim & Sassy® TrimShake includes 50 mg per serving of Solathin®, a special protein extract from natural food sources that supports an increased feeling of satiety. Solathin® has also been demonstrated to control snacking between meals, portion control, and feeling full faster and longer. Along with being an excellent source of protein, Solathin® is also hypo-allergenic and enhances the flavor and texture of TrimShake. *
Slim & Sassy TrimShake has been carefully formulated to be used in conjunction with the dōTERRA Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend, Lifelong Vitality Supplements, and TerraZyme® Digestive Enzyme Complex for a comprehensive weight management product support system.

Q: Are TrimShakes gluten, GMO and soy free?
A: The TrimShakes do not contain gluten, genetically modified material, or soy-based ingredients.
Q: Does it still have sugar?
A: The TrimShake does not contain evaporated cane juice or sugar. It is now completely sweetened by Stevia.
Q: What are the natural flavors listed on the label?
A: The natural flavors are a proprietary blend of natural flavors, including natural vanilla bean and cocoa flavors.
Q: Is this a meal replacement?
A: Though the TrimShake can be used as a meal replacement, the serving size does not meet the minimum requirements for it to be called a meal replacement. This is primarily because one serving does not provide enough calories. If you take more than one scoop, then it could be used as a meal replacement.
Q: What is ashwagandha?
A: Ashwagandha is an herb native to India. It is included in TrimShake for its ability to help manage appetite and cravings.
Q: How does an appetite suppressant work?
A: An appetite suppressant helps you feel fuller longer, or decreases the desire to eat.
Q: Can I maintain the same benefits by adding fruits, juices or vegetables to the TrimShakes?
A: Yes. Not only does it allow you to cater it to your tastes by adding other things to your blender, but you can also add to an already robust list of nutrients.
Noelle: I’m not sure what other powders the other reviewer has tried but I’m a personal trainer and fitness competitor and have tried almost every protein powder. This one is all natural, sweetened with (non-toxic) non-caloric stevia. Most of the other brands in the supplement stores are sweetened with (toxic) sucralose and acesulfame potassium, which may taste better but it’s definitely NOT healthy for you. That’s like saying m&ms taste better than oatmeal & egg whites. In addition, by consuming toxins, your body stores them in your fat cells, making fat loss an even bigger challenge. This powder also blends into a very silky mixture, but I use the Magic Bullet, some Barleans Flaxseed oil, and a small serving of fruit to create a balanced smoothie. Some of the recipes I use are at doTERRA detox dot com. I’m a fan and I never plan on switching brands again.
Pat: Yes the product is good.i am pleased with the taste as long as it is mixed with milk or soy milk. Mixing it with water does not taste good at all.
Linzer: I think this tastes good with banana and peanut butter. It tastes horrible with just plain water. It is better if you add some kind of fruit in it. Other than that it keeps you full and it doesn’t have very many calories. It is a healthy way to get in shape. It also says on the label that you can add 1 drop of an essential oil in there. Good for anyone!
Marti: This is a great way to satisfy chocolate cravings. It is good tasting and you are not left feeling hungry.
Nora: I tried all other shakes, and I am hooked on this chocolate one with peanut butter!! Yum it’s my own little treat and it fills me up in the morning. I am not a breakfast lover and now I have it every single morning. Someone said this was chalky?? NO WAY. This is very smoothe and honestly it tastes good! If you like the taste of slim fast which i’m not crazy about this is way better!! You will love it
