Early one morning, I ran out of the house for coffee and a brownie (shhhh...don't tell anyone) at my local 7-Eleven. It was 5:50 a.m. and I caught the tail end of a promotional piece on 98.7 about SKINNY D™ . I was intrigued because SKINNY D™ is a weight loss program that promotes itself by targeting high fructose corn syrup. If you're interested keep reading.
Let me begin by saying there is not much information on this product, and I could not find anything in the National Institutes of Health, or American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Most of the information offered comes directly from Dr. Newton's Naturals which launched Dr. Agins SKINNY D™ product in 2011.
The name SKINNY D™ is derived from the basis that the product was initially created for diabetics.
According to the website high fructose corn syrup is in nearly every food we eat, and one of the biggest causes for not being able to lose weight. It is also a reason for other health issues.

SKINNY D™ is A Meal Replacement drink
The product itself is ameal replacement drink that contains 10 calories per serving. In each serving there are only 2 grams of sugar. It was developed to deliver specific nutrients to your body to reduce sugar cravings regardless of anyone's medical history.
Dr. Agins created SKINNY D™ as a way to help pre-diabetics and diabetics. It was also a way to reduce eating excessive amounts of processed foods--high in artificial sweeteners--which puts people at a higher risk of diabetes.
This is not an Endorsement or recommendation
Please be aware that I am not endorsing or recommending Dr. Agin's SKINNY D™. When writing my article I could find no research on the product other than what was written by the Skinny D. website. There are many reviews, but they are also the reviews that lead directly to the site. I do not know if these are paid reviews in favor of the product; which is common for websites to attract consumers.
