Are There Any Negative Side Effects With Taking Tavala Trim?

A product called Tavala Trim was introduced in November 2016 and has changed the way people are looking at Weight Management.  Perhaps you’ve heard of it too.

Weight Loss excites most people but actually it is Weight Management that is where it is at.  Most people can ‘lose weight’ but can they keep it up?  Has their metabolism actually boosted for long term success?

One question from Day 1 has come up is: Are there any negative side effects when taking Trim?

There are many POSITIVE side effects: MORE ENERGY, FOCUS, SUPPRESSED APPETITE & CRAVINGS, BOOST IN METABOLISM AND ULTIMATELY WEIGHT LOSS, but the only negative reaction I personally have heard is below.

As of today, the only negative side effect I have had is that SOME people find that the stimulant in the TRIM is too much for their system.  I happen to be one of those people.  Some people feel nauseous or even sick to their stomach if they begin with a full TRIM on Day 1 and some have even felt like they are on ‘a drug’ with a strong stimulant.  (Some have even named a drug that they can relate to that had them feeling like this.)  This is especially true for people who have a sensitivity to stimulants.  But this is a small group of people!  Most drink a full Trim drink of Day 1 and boast on the energy and focus they feel within 15-30 minutes.

We never quite know who these people will be- who may feel ‘weird’ or ‘wired’- but what we have found is that size is not a factor.  We have customers who can drink 2-3 Trim a day and weigh less than 120 lbs. and we have people who weigh over 300 lbs. who have to start slow and even to this day, find a full drink to be too much for them.  Both groups of people enjoy the TRIM and lose weight.  The key is getting past any feeling of ‘wired or weird’.   Most people have found with time, even if they were in the “sensitive group”, that their bodies build up to enjoying the boost with time.

3-Day samples are available for those who feel they need to try the product first due to a known sensitivity.  A sample costs $9.99 and is available with free shipping at

Even though there is only a small percentage of consumers who are in this ‘above category’  we always tell people on Day 1 to start by mixing a full drink but divide it in half.  Drink 1/2 in the morning and if you feel OK then drink the other 1/2 hours later.

On the box there is a note:  “If you are sensitive to stimulants, you may want to start with just half of a stick the first two days, then begin with the regular one stick serving from day three on.  Cal also be taken with food.”

Some people STILL need to begin with even an 1/8th or 1/4 of a Trim drink until they build up the Pea (which is natural occurring) in their body. 

For those who have stuck with this and are committed to using the TRIM, despite feeling ‘not so great’  or even ‘odd’ in the beginning, most are thrilled with their eventual results and most of those people have gone on to lose their desired weight and now are coaching others as well.  They would urge people to not give up, just start slow.

Others, like myself, find adding the TRIM to my Tavala Weight Loss Protein Shake helps the feeling of ‘too much stimulant’.

All of this information was important for ME to hear because as I said, I am someone who always has to alter ANYTHING I consume that has a stimulant in it. (coffee past noon and I am up well into the night!)  My body is very sensitive.  In the beginning I was over stimulated and yes I ‘felt a bit weird’ so I  stopped taking the TRIM for awhile (which bothered ME as I wanted the great results that my customers and team were getting) and then I gradually began taking the TRIM again.

Now I am not saying that I have all the answers with regards to TRIM, I do not.  There may be other negative side effects that others have experienced (and if so, please feel free to share with us) but this is the only one I have heard since TRIM was introduced… and we have assisted thousands of people with TRIM since we joined Tavala December 2016.

Other than the jokes that TRIM kept someone had so much energy that their house is now ulta-clean (ceilings and walls too!) or that they got more errands and chores done in 1 day than usually takes 3-4…but those are ‘fun side effects’.

Obviously it makes sense to ask your physician if it is OK to add TRIM if you have any questions about your medication you are on or your current state of health.

Trim comes in a drink (add powder to water) and also comes in capsule form.  The cost is only $69.99 for a 28-day supply.

To learn more about the synergy of ingredients in the TRIM and how they work read the article below.  This is a great article written on the Science of PEA.  I encourage you to read it to understand one significant ingredient of our Trim product.

Recipe for the BEST Keto Fat Bombs Ever!

I was introduced to the KETO lifestyle several years ago and it blew my mind as it was 360 degrees different than what was educated on my entire life.

I grew up in the age of ‘fat phobia’ and was told that fat made you fat.  Obviously there is great education on this subject that tells us it is the KIND of fat that makes a difference and actually that FAT is good for you.  Thus, the Keto Diet Movement.

Several years ago a friend shared the BEST FAT BOMB recipe with me and today, I have fine-tuned it to make it even better- healthier and to include an anti-oxidant that will kick the butt of any other ‘chocolate’ on the market.

Ready?  Here is the recipe from our friend April (and it’s a perfect time of the year to share.)  The only thing I have added and upgraded on is the type of CHOCOLATE used in the original recipe.  I now use BRU and highly suggest you do too.

  Put this ‘mixture’ into decorative shaped tins or holiday ‘small muffin tin’ papers and you’ll SHOCK and excite everyone who tastes them.  By the way, for added nutrition and a great healthy fat boost, you can even add a FAT BOMB to your morning coffee.

Here goes:

Peanut Butter Cup Fat Bombs
1/4 cup coconut butter, (or unsalted grass fed butter)
1/2 cup coconut oil,
1/2 cup organic creamy peanut butter or other nut butter
1/8 cup MCT oil
2 TBSP organic Bru (   *
1/4 cup raw coconut flakes,
1-2 droppers of alcohol free stevia,
pink Himalayan sea salt.

If you do not have BRU you can also use a dark chocolate (unsweetened) powder or dark Cacao powder.

Melt a bit of coconut oil so it will mix well. You have to taste as you go to adjust as necessary.
Mini cupcake papers, we put a little dot of peanut butter (or nut butter) in each paper then topped with fat bomb mixture. Sprinkle a bit of the salt on top and refrigerate.

I have altered this original recipe when I don’t have coconut on hand and it is still healthy and delicious AND also even when I didn’t have nut butter.  You can even alter the recipe by adding a drop or two of peppermint essential oil and have a real peppermint patty treat.

Enjoy and if you have questions email us at or call 802-846-7530.  P.S. Even my fat-phobic parents who were born in the 1930s and still believe fat is ‘bad’ LOVE these fat bombs.  I just tell them that this is a healthy ‘chocolate snack’.

Most ingredients are available at your grocery or health food store….and you can certainly improvise.   As for what we use, the BRU is only available through Tavala, A full bag that is organic cacao and will last a long time is only $29.99.

I’d love to know how your recipe turns out.  For me, when I have any cravings I reach for a FAT BOMB as it helps satisfy any craving, gives me great nutrition and a healthy high anti0xidant snack.  By the way did you know that FAT keeps you more satisfied than carbohydrates?

Share your pictures of your FAT BOMB creations.  I’m sure they will look better than mine do….but heck, I am here for the nutrition!
