What is the science behind SLIM+?
The simple science behind weight loss is creating a calorie deficit. A calorie deficit occurs when you consume fewer calories than what you burn. When a calorie deficit exists, your body gets energy from stored fat, instead of energy from your food. As stored fat gets burned for energy, weight loss occurs.
The problem is that a lot of people create a calorie deficit for weight loss in a way that is harmful for their health. With SLIM+, you receive guidance from our doctor and diet coach to achieve a healthful weight loss. Our meal plans will also provide you with a nutritious, balanced diet in controlled portions to make your weight loss experience satisfying and enjoyable.

Are SLIM+ meals freshly made everyday?
SLIM+ meals are freshly made to order, then immediately frozen to maintain food safety and quality. Bacteria grows most rapidly in the danger zone between 4°C to 60°C, so keeping foods frozen prevents growth of bacteria and allows it to stay safe longer. Conventional catering programs produce fresh meals every morning, but they are kept at room temperature (ie. in the danger zone) to be consumed for lunch or dinner, compromising food safety. Our frozen meals also retain its freshness and quality thanks to our thermoforming packaging and proper procedures for storage and handling.
How do I reheat my meals?
SLIM+ meals are fully cooked, so you just need to defrost the meals, reheat in the packaging, remove the cover carefully, and wait a few minutes before enjoying!
Methods to defrost:
- Thaw in the fridge overnight
- Let sit at room temperature for 6 hours
- Defrost in the microwave with the defrost function
- Submerge in a bowl of warm water
Methods to reheat:
- Microwave for 3 minutes
- Boil or steam for 12 minutes (steaming is recommended!)
You do NOT need to remove the inner cover while reheating, as the packaging is certified safe to be heated up to 120°C.
Is it safe to reheat my meals with the packaging?
Absolutely! Our meals are packed using thermoforming films to maintain your meal quality and freshness. Our thermoforming films are certified to be completely safe for freezing and reheating.
Thermoforming is a single-surface forming method employing low-pressure and low-temperature. The formed product is the result of rigidifying a hot rubbery sheet against a cold mold.
Thermoforming films are the packaging of choice for many fresh and premium-grade foods because:
- It eliminates air inside the packaging, preventing oxidation and maintaining the product’s original colour and flavour.
- It gives excellent shelf life (extended shelf life)
- It keeps juices and marinades within the package
- It has high stability and rigidity, protection against freezer burn
- Products can go straight from the chiller cabinet or freezer to oven, and will safely self-vent steam during cooking without the need to puncture the film
- It provides excellent seal to prevent contamination
- It provides a clear view of the entire product
