Step 1 with Kel-6
In step 1, the company encourages you to use another supplement called Kel-6. This supplement contains some essential minerals and nutrients. Since it contains Tribulus terrestris it has mild diuretic effect.
Step 2 with Moving
Moderate intensity workouts are essential for this system to work. This course gives suggestions about warming-up, strength training, cardio workouts, and stretching for overall body flexibility.
Step 3,4 & 5: Food choice
This chapter tells us ‘how to maintain a food dairy’. They advise you to eat low GI foods. Fortunately, the list contains lots of food choices, hence not too hard to follow. They also advise to eat ‘low fat’ foods which is amusing for me.
They also promote the theory of ‘eat smaller meal regularly to keep metabolism firing’. Based on my own personal experience, I can confidently say that, this theory is a myth. Moreover, many medical experts vouch the same.

Step 6 & 7- Drink water and maintain weight
In this section you’ll get information on fluids. There is a separate section for cold, hot, and alcoholic beverages. You are advised to drink pure water without any flavors or artificial tasters. There is also another section for ‘weight management’. Overall, it’s a commonsense fitness approach.
I think I have already highlighted all the pros & cons and better alternatives. This is not a ‘hocus-focus magic pill’ which makes exorbitant weight loss claims. Both RelislimS6 & Relislim Herbal, and supportive 7 step program can help you to lose weight if followed strictly. Before closing down, I suggest you read this review of PhenQ. <<< From all the angles, it looks better alternative.
