Celebrity Slim Rapid, Trim & Maintain Program Phases

Rapid Phase


And I work manual labor. Have you lost ANY significant weight in your view? It works that well. Sitting down for the whole episode is definitely not active. I use water instead of milk.

Trim Phase


Celebrity Slim Rapid is the kick-start phase of the Celebrity Slim Program, designed to be used for the first few weeks or longer if you prefer - there is no time limit as the Rapid Phase is completely safe for ongoing use. Rapid has been formulated to eliminate cravings, kick start weight loss and get you motivated for the 'Trim' phase.

For nutritional information, check out the Rapid shakes range. The Celebrity Slim Rapid phase has been devised to reduce carbohydrates from the diet and encourages rapid weight loss by forcing the body to burn primarily fat instead of glucose sugar for energy. On the Trim Phase, simply replace 2 meals each day with delicious Celebrity Slim shakes or meal bars, eat 1 healthy balanced meal and snack up to 3 times on a variety of yummy, allowable foods between meals. Drinking lots of water is also very important, so we recommend at least 2 litres per day.

The Celebrity Slim Trim Phase is our regular program, designed with longer term use in mind. Many people find Trim to be the most enjoyable phase of the program, because it's so flexible, offers the most variety of Celebrity Slim meals and snacks to choose from and is easy to stick to.

On our Maintain Phase, you can choose to stop using Celebrity Slim meal replacements altogether or cut back to just 1 Celebrity Slim Shake or Meal Bar, alongside 2 healthy balanced meals and 3 healthy snacks. But beware - if at this stage you were to go back to eating a carbohydrate rich diet, you would probably regain much of the weight and fat you have lost.

Once you've reached your goal weight, our Maintain Phase will help ease you back into a healthy lifestyle routine designed to help you sustain your weight loss results in the long run. The great thing about the Maintenance Phase, you will find, is that because you are still following the basic program guidelines, you will continue to lose weight. Many people find that they enjoy having some extra food alternatives and choose to move between the Trim phase and Maintain phase to keep things interesting.

It is a great way to stay on track too, because you can eat some of the foods that you enjoy without having to worry about gaining on the scales. Where do I start? How much weight can I expect to lose? Adjust your plan to suit your lifestyle Remember, the Celebrity Slim program is flexible so you can swap meals around to suit your daily schedule.

Rapid Phase Celebrity Slim Rapid is the kick-start phase of the Celebrity Slim Program, designed to be used for the first few weeks or longer if you prefer - there is no time limit as the Rapid Phase is completely safe for ongoing use. If you gain any weight.. It started Aug 16 and is going to Dec I had been jogging all week. I lost almost 6 lbs the first week. I started the thing at I started rope jumping years ago, for high school football.

I picked it up again for amateur boxing, and now I continue it for Goju Ryu karate. I can go about 45 non stop. I break up the time doing either 30 mins mins mins all non stop or 20 mins mins mins every day.

It beats running, walking, everything. I have found it to be a killer calorie burner and a major muscle toner. Give it a shot. The only problem I have with it is I have developed a pain in the top of my foot. Try to jump on cushioned surfaces, anything but cement. My one piece of advice would be to learn how to jump correctly and efficiently with correct form. Make sure you have a rope the right size and cross trainers pref with some gel in the forefoot.

Practice jumping until you are no more than half an inch off the floor and never jump on a hard surface. It builds long lean muscle my legs and glutes have never looked so good and it also builds upper body muscle.

As for burning calories nothing beats it though the scales may not register weight loss immediately due to putting on muscle. Most of all it is such FUN. I can be jumping around for two plus hours practising tricks etc… and it is so graceful and athletic.

PS I was 49 years old when i picked up the rope for the first time. Check out the professionals on the web.. Get jumping people its going to be soooo fashionable. I just started jumping rope today and did 40 mins of start and stop mainly because I am so out of practice and the rope kept hitting my feet haha.

I was originally a runner but now the thought of running makes me feel like puking. I work and workout with trainers all day and they all say that jumping rope is one of the best cardio excersises a person can do. It works that well. I do very little lifting. So if your not into weight training, this is the perfect calorie burning workout that also gives you shredded lean muscle.

You not only burn between calories depending on your weight, but you increase strength in your upper and lower body for even higher endurance workouts. You will see results quickly. I just completed the 15 Minute jumprope routine and I am panting harder than my 3 mile brisk walk-jog routine that I do everyday.

Do you think if jump rope for 5 minutes, do treadmill for 10 minutes, rest 1 minutes, jump rope for 5 minutes, treadmill for 10minutes, test 1 minute, jump rope 5 minutes, treadmill for 15 minutes — do you think i can lose the weight i want?

There are multiple things you have to take into consideration when dealing with health issues and exercise regimen…some advice are sensible, but you have to weigh your options no pun intended so-to-speak…I wish you all the best. I too, have changed my diet portions and have cut out pop, sweets and alcohol…occassionally, I may falter but rare…. Do some resarch and speak with your Doctor Lori.. Hy all, i have seen all the comments and i think you ppl are doing the jump rope at a very very slow phase.

Try jumping rope for 3 minutes straight and rest for one minute, then start the cycle again, 3 min, rest 1 min. Do that for 30 minutes 3 times a week. You will burn a minimum of calories per session. The problem is people jump rope for 30 min, burn calories and then have a calorie lunch. You just defeated the purpose. In order to lose weight you MUST burn more calories than you take in!! Hey thanks for the advice Char.

What kinds of routines are good? My response is to those who are trying to lose weight and want some advice. I used to be overweight and now have found what works for me.

Please let me share. It needs to repair. Walk if you need to keep routine. Simple carbohydrates make you hungrier, and salt makes you retain water weight. Measure and monitor your body fat at least every other day. Do not even look at your weight. Just start over with the next meal, day, etc. Limit your whole grains to the equivelant of about a bowl of cereal a day which is the recommended amount. Try to incorporate changes to your routine and keep them for a month.

When I make healthy food and exercise choices, I feel great about myself. Started with jumping rope!

This is usually where I plateau and give up, but not this time. I picked up a jump rope on a whim because it has been raining these past 2 days and gave it a go just now. I should have read this beforehand because I made the mistake of double-jumping and going 10 minutes non-stop.

Still, for my first ever jump rope workout I feel as tired as a 30 minute jog. I should have lost five more pounds. This translates into less calories burnt. Try mixing up your routine. For instance, you could skip for 10 minutes, run for 10, and go back to skipping for the last 10 minutes.

One more thing I would like to ask, if u could tell me how much weight will i lose in the coming 2 months if I jumprope for at least an hour a day? With a proper diet, do you think i can loose up to 25 lbs? Keep it going…you inspire me! It certainly works out a lot of sweat. WOW everyone here is awesome and I am happy I started jump rope. I plan on losing 20 pounds. Mike D is absolutely correct about the plateau effect.

Try to switch between HIIT powerwalking or rowing or cycling or any other form of cardio about every 2 weeks. I would want to be around pounds. I have been trying to run I have also tried to change my diet to healthy fruit milkshakes in the morning for breakfast, a low-carb lunch and a oats meal dinner. I do seem to feel fitter mentally but I would like someone to suggest a healthy workout for me to lose around pounds in around 2 months?

Do let me know if weeks is a possible timeframe as well? Oh, and I am also a vegetarian, non smoker and non drinker. Thank you so much for your time.

Im a 19 yr old female. I weigh I wanna lose lbs. But today I decided to just start jump roping 30 mins a day at a fats past. How many calories will this born and how long will it take me to lose the weight? Tip, Warnings, Opinions all welcome. DO NOT jump rope on concrete! My leg is back in working order so i will follow my diet and jump rope for about 30min per day 6 days a week and they key secret is to indulge your self in fat foods 1nce per week preferably weekends to sort of trick your body into losing fat rapidly.

Please feel free to ask question or make comments! For the most part, my cardio has consisted of interval running 2 minutes moderate, 2 minutes medium-high, and one minute high for 30 minutes. Yesterday, I jumped rope for 35 minutes, with the following routine: So, in a one minute period, I jump for 45 seconds and rest 15 seconds.

After 30 minutes of this cycle, I burned around calories. Plus, my calves get an amazing workout! I hope to be able to get to 1 minute of jumping and 15 seconds of rest by the end of March.

With that pace, I should be burning well over calories in a half hour. Jump roping is amazing. I have lost significant weight twice jumping rope unfortunatley, I quit working out and also gained it back , and there is nothing I have ever found that invigorates me more.

I read a book about the power of jump roping over 10 years ago. In his opinion, jumping rope is the best exercise you can do. From reading a lot about it, I have learned that the best place to jump is on suspended wood like an aerobics studio. A cheap plastic rope always works the best for me. I usually start with revolutions, then I walk around for about 30 seconds to 1 minute depending upon how tired I am.

While I jump, I concentrate on a place on the wall in front of me -it helps me keep my balance and keeps me concentrating. Start off small and build up, so you keep it up. I just started a weight loss plan two weeks ago, again, and I do a machine eliptical, treadmill, bike for minutes, then the jump roping routine. Yes, I have modified my diet. Today, I worked out for 20 minutes on the stationary bike which kills me , then a half a mile jog, then 10 minutes on the eliptical.

I finished with my jump roping. I felt good enough to try so I did repetitions, then took a minute walk, and finsihed with the last repetitions. You should wear cross-trainer tennis shoes, not running shoes when jumping rope. Running shoes do not have cushion at the sole of your foot, where you land, and all of the bulk on the heal of a running shoes is a place the rope can get caught and break your stride. I have been trying to loose weight for quite some time. I joined slim in 6 back in June of I have accomplished some weight loss but to my dismay, I grew tired and stressed for not having a good schedule I can work with.

I try to make things happen by waking up at 5: I feel much better for having lost 15 lbs. I know that these 26 lbs. Your help and motivation is much needed! Hey i have been skipping rope for the last 1 month. I skip for 45 minutes times four times a week. Although my fitness level is great, i havent lost a single pound. What could i be doing wrong? Jesse- how is your diet? Are you keeping a diary of what you are eating? The Daily Plate on the site is free, and you would be surprised how many foods are already in the system under the search tab.

Also, it is awesome how you are consistantly working out 4x per week. However, new recommendations I have read say that you should work out 30? However, if you are taking in less calories than what you need on a daily basis keep in mind that calories equals a pound , and working out, you should be losing weight.

If after really examining you diet and exercise routine and nothing adds up, I would see a doctor. It might be your thyroid, insulin resistance, or something else.

I had no idea that jumping work was so much better than my walking and elliptical. I have lost 5lbs as of this week on Weight Watchers and hoping to loose 50lbs by that date but lbs overall.

My awful all time high. I will keep you all posted on my progress. Thanks for all your comments and experience. I feel privileged to have a great job with the facilities of a back-yard gym! I just bought a jumprope tonight! I am so exited to see.

Umm how long should I jump rope at one time? And how many times a day? The reason I am losing weight is because I have seen my number on the scale. Was not too happy about it. I have been cutting the calories down and drinking a lot of water. Hello all, My jump rope routine consists of 4 sets of I can do in 2 minutes. How many calories am I burning? Mike D — WOW, congrats.

Keep up the amazing work. I am just beginning to take up jump roping and your progress and persistence are so inspiring. I have lost five pounds doing this and i am really overweight. But what i do is jump 50 jumps take a breath the then do another 50 and so on so forth until i reach Good luck everyone and keep up the inspiring work! From the waist down, no-one would think i was fat, my legs are toned and slim.

I have cereal for breakfast, fruit for lunch occasionally have fruit for snacks too and tuna and salad for dinner or egg white and tuna with salrd.

I want to be able to become slim on my tum before next weekend, or at least loose weight, i think i weight about 12 stone? Please could anyone give me any tips or to tell me if this excersise will work. Thank you it would be very much apperiated! According to my fancy little rope digital readout I jump at a pace of about jpm jumps per minute I just started about a three days ago so my coordination is still a little off, so the rope trips me up and I have to restart. The important thing is not to count jumps but put every ounce of effort into that ten minutes.

I may get a thousand or I may only get , the point is that I am sweating, my heart rate is up and I just burned about a hundred calories going on the assumption that 1 min of good jumping gets you about calories burned. According to some older posts that seems to be a more reasonable number than some others , think of the funny picture of the Egret long Billed bird that preys on frogs trying to eat a frog and the frog has its hands wrapped around the birds throat.

I started jumping rope in grade school and loved it. Just recently I remembered how fast I lost weight jumping rope when I was fighting muay thai style kickboxing 12years ago. I am determined to drop these 30lb that have just creeped up on me over the last two years. I am 4months post foot surgery and I do a bootcamp style workout times a week. I watch my calorie intake closely and eat whole foods, fish 3 times a week, chicken and I try a new vegetable every week.

I have always learned the slower you lose the weight the longer it will stay off. I Dont diet but i choose a healthy eating lifestyle. I do slip after all i am human but i just jump right back into my healthy eating pattern. All of the Articles I have read Inspire me to reach my goal. BTW I had just finished working out for a short 20min workout, a very fast paced jump rope session with some muay thai kicks and punches and ab work for a nice sweat dripping cardio session. Thanks for the motivation, I wish everyone the best for the weight loss goals.

I train in mma muay thai, and bjj and for warm up we do 15 minutes of jump roping just for a warm up. Being depressed and not caring about myself. I jump for 30 secs then do 10 up and downs then jump for 30 secs again. I jump rope after weight training.

I mix up the days from week to week. I use an iso-mat to take the some of the shock off my ankles. I like to jump rope on the mat with just socks, shoes tend to slow me down.

I use the Everlast leather jump ropes 8ft. This type of rope seems to be faster than cloth rope or plastic licorice. The drawback is the fragile wooden handles which crack and break away in chunks, eventually the slip ring can pop out. I buy a new one every months. Which jump rope routine should I do to lose 12 lbs or more in 30 days?

You see, when jump roping for an hour you can burn from calories, and your calorie diet should be calories. So jump roping takes half of your calories. Oh and make sure the jump rope is your size by stepping on the rope and pulling up the handles to see where they they reach you. I used jumping rope to lose 30 pounds. It took me a few months, but I did 20 minutes a day, combined with healthy eating. I am , and was Now I am , hoping to lose another For those who think its not a good fat burner, I can testify that it does.

I jump rope six days a week, for 40 minutes a day. My jumps average 75 jmp, although I make myself crank out 90 during the last minute. Will this routine have me in good shape for running do you think? When I was running, I was pretty decent, being on the Varsity team.

My fastest 5k was a Thus, these times are not evident of my full potential. Things are better now medically, so I hope that this season will be good for me, and that this routine will have me in great shape! Hey guys, first time poster. I use to work out regularly but have stopped due to lack of time. Before I knew it, I packed on over 60 lbs. My friend who is a avid work out warrior kept telling me to jump rope for minutes a day, I never listened to him because I felt that jump roping was for kids.

That was until I found this page. After reading your guys posts, I thought I would give it a shot. All I have to say right now is wow. It took me a couple of minutes to get use to it lol. But I got the hang of it again. I can already tell I over did it. Guess I should have started easy and not jump rope for 30 minutes. On a side note, I am jump roping in a sauna suit. I know it makes me sweat a lot more, and i know the weight will come right back after i drink water but I am wondering if the heat caused by the sauna suit will help increase my metabolism?

I thought jump roping would be a better way to go over riding a stationary cycle for 99 minutes straight. No matter how hard I pedal the results still read the same. So I was wondering does jump roping have the better advantage?

Exercises go well with good nutrition, unless you eat well you will never reach your goals at least as a healthy person. Our energy source ise basically carbs and fats. Fat is cold while carb is warm. Carb takes shorter to power up your body while fat takes a lot. You know what happens when resting; you muscles ran out of energy and your body tries to burn up fat to power up the engine again. So what keeps us running is the carbs not the fat.

Women especially should consider doing lifting with small amounts. For a healthy weight losing pattern, you need to eat around 1 hr before your exercise, never work out with an empty stomach unless you know what you are doing in some cases this is recommended but you really need to know.

Our body is intelligent, if it has a little energy left and if there is a physical activity, it will try to preserve it and try to burn less. It changes from people to people, your trainer or doctor can calculate this for you, but when you start an excersise it takes some time for our body to accept it.

Because it will think its a temporary effort and will continue in its normal operation. But after sometime, it will see that this activity is going on, so it will change the powering mechanism and will start burning fat.

It will try to set a flow of fat-energy to your muscles. By time, your body will learn and your performance will last longer. What is best about systematic exercises is it will speed up your metabolism.

So you will start burning more when walking in the office, climbing the stairs even just standing. Hope this helps someone. Okay hey, help needed please! Anybody has any advice for me? It would be greatly appreciated. PS- i would like to be pounds by the ending of or sooner. Hi loura, u must start rope jumping for a straight 5 mins first, then u take a minute gap and walk for that time or do something u like.

Repeat this for about 15 minutes first and then keep increasing it, keep a check on what u eat. I hope u lose about lbs in 3 weeks. Rope jumping burns about calories per min depending upon your jumping intensity. Jumping rope is the best exercise in this busy world.

So stop wasting money on gyms and start jumping rope. While jumping, the muscles beneath your knee are used. With time weeks , u will see that you have developed a good strong muscles in that section.

The way football players have Other good exercises are:. In about a month u will notice that your jeans has become loose in the thighs area. Uses a lot of energy, and burns up a lot of fat. Take a 1-litre bottle and fill it up with water. Now raise your hands up with the bottle held firmly in between your hands. Now keeping your body straight, bend on one side left, right , alternately. Do it 30 times. This decreases the fat accumulated on the waist. Though a difficult one. But it is good to develop a habit of it.

Just do it times in the beginning. A good exercise to burn the fat accumulated on the chest. This was my routine of exercises: Then again repeating it. Do it for about times in an hour everyday. Okay, I try to do it everyday. But, sometimes not possible due to lack of time. Have a happy and lively life.

I usually jump one minute between sets of kettlbells and weight workouts. I have jumped for up to 1 hr. Believe me, I know, you must eat less, eat clean, and then jumping will assist. Same goes for any workout, Unless your Micheal Phelps. I have been eating less, keep the sweets and breads away for the past three days. I just now got into my mood where i am able to start losing weight. Or the mood where i really really want to. I would love to be lbs. My stomach is already thinner. It gets rather thin in a few days.

I think i did the diet wrong. I use water instead of milk. A lot of protein. Last night i had tuna salad. Anyway, i usually wake up around 9: Get my running clothes on. Drink a big glass of super ice cold water starts your metabolism because it has to warm up the cold water.

Then i drink a tbsp of L-Carnitine which burns fatty acids and stuff. Then i walk around then i go running for about 25 minutes. I sprint at least two times on my way home. The harder you are breathing, the better. I come home, drink more ice cold water. Have a protein shake. I usually do 30 minutes up to 45 minutes. Every few minutes i jump rope as fast as i can for as long as i can.

I do this every day. HAVE been for about 3 weeks now. My grandma told me she jumped roped 2 weeks and saw improvement in her thighs tightening up. Thanks for all the inspiration everyone.

Anyone have any good jump rope exercises? I have pre-season for softball and we do a lot of running. I usually run about miles a day in the off season, but it is so boring to me now. If I start jump roping everyday will I be in the same cardio shape for running when my season starts? It starts in February. If I go by time I dont go as far.

My total workout is 40 minutes and I jump jumps but I break in between to do strength training and other cardio jumps, than 50 weighted squats, jumps, 50 more weighted squats, jumps, 30 lunges with bicep curls with 5 pd weights on each side than 30 dumb bell rows, than jumps, than 1 mile on the bike, than more jumps, then 5 minutes working out with a 10 pd weight upper body exercises, than 3 minutes of abs does anyone know many calories I am buring.

Oh and a small comment on people saying 98 pds is to thin. Hi, Im 15 years old and i want to loose 30 lbs in 3 months just by jump roping and eating healthy. Will this actually work?

I plan on jump roping a lot and sweating a lot. Is it possible to lose 10 pounds for me in a month? Please let me know. People, if you want to lose weight change your eating habits.

To say you want to lose lbs in a month jumping rope is crazy. Just eat less guys! Is it that hard? I know someone who has lost 20 lbs by changing the amount she ate. This jump roping really works. I started jumping rope, and i do about jumps every day. I think jump roping is funner and gives you real results much quicker than running for long periods of time or jogging.

Sprinting can also help you burn fat quickly. I am 43 years old and been jumping rope since I was 18, people think I am in my early 30s. I just do jumps 5 days a week that takes 30 minutes with breaks.

I started a diet and workout routine at the beginning of this year and have lost 20lbs so far. I got that way because I had started college and stopped working out. I also kept a pretty healthy, balanced diet. I am currently 10 lbs away from my goal weight of lbs, and for the past month of consistent workouts I have only lost 2 lbs.

Do you all think it will be the change my body needs in order to get through these last 10lbs? Hi All, I have been jumping rope now for 3 years and I also box. I have so say that Jumping rope is one of the best forms of overall exercise that I would recommend to anyone. Yes, it can take some time to get it down to a good routine but once you do, you will be hooked! For anyone who is looking to start bringing jumping rope, I might recommend first trying to do it for 1 minute and then work up to 3 minute, then go from there and just have fun!

I eat a lot of food and I still stay lbs. I want to be between and i think that would be good for me cuz I like being curvy.

I only have half an hour to work out in the mornings before work. Whats the best routine for that amount of time? I want to be at at least lbs by ma birthday in January. Can Half an hour a day five days a week get me there? I am 32 yrs old female and a mother of a 2 yr old. Today was my 1st day i started jump rope or skipping. And i was so bad at it that i wanted to cry. I really wanna do something and so desperate. This weight has made me so depress and unhappy.

I have started taking less quantity of food to begin with my diet and have increased my water intake. Drink tea with no sugar in it. I bought a jump rope Reebok; ball bearings and the like and stood outside of my house for 45 minutes and just hopped and hopped. I never jumped rope before or knew how.

I used to be in highschool four years ago. I understand our situation is different physically and metabolically, but I assure you that you can do this. I just sat outside with a cup of water and kept trying and trying. Eventually, I was able to get over it, then over it twice. Took me 45 minutes, but I was able to figure it out, sweaty like a grease trap. I had to have jumped that rope over times to be able to get the hang of it or more.

The point being is I did alot trying for the goal. Tonight I tried for forty and succeeded 45 minutes of failures, but much better in succession. I believe in you, now buck up and believe in yourself.

I did consecutive 20 jumps and did jumps with breaks in it but have managed in 12 min. I think you are right about making things happen when one wants. I am sure you can do it too and so can i. We just need to be consistent and need to believe in ourselves. Are you also dieting? I mean what is your food intake? They say jumping rope is more effective if one combines it with controlled food intake? Lets hope fer the best fer both of us and keep in touch. Bought a rope today and will give it a try; preliminary tryouts had me hitting myself in the back of the head mostly.

Then on to 90 next year. Jump rope has an extra shock absorber effect that comes from ending on the balls of your feet rather than your heels as in running. The impact was just too great for me to get in shape by running, so bicycling, swimming and jump rope really helped.

At this point I have returned to my primary sport of Thai Boxing and jump rope about 20 minutes every practice, or about 4 times a week and can hang with younger athletes that are in great shape. So…jump rope is good, right? Yes, in that respect I echo the statements here. But on the way back to the living I have also overdone it a bit with plyometric exercises and want to caution people, as one trainer did above, about too much jump rope.

Jump rope creates little micro-tears in your gastrocnemeus muscle, which absorbs most of the impact. It is better to switch it up with another exercise, e. If, like me, you overdo the jump rope or overdo plyometric exercises in general then you risk weakening your gastroc muscle and can become vulnerable to injury. Watch out, I tore the medial head of my gastrocnemeus muscle. It was painful, and it took me out of everything but swimming for two months.

Then I was able to add back bicycling and after four months jump rope. I still jump rope, but I now have a healthy respect for the risk factors involved in over doing it. I love jumping rope! It really gives me a boost.

I suggest looking for songs with those tempos you can jump to, in your favorite genre. It really does add more fun! Would it be better if i mix it up? I really need to do it cuz i want to look good at my wedding. Do you think power walking and jumping rope every day for approx 45 min each will help? Any advice would be appreciated greatly. I am also at but i am a few inches taller. I am going to try jump roping as well a few times a week for 30 min to get down to The key is to do it in intervals no more than 5 min with rests in between.
