As one of South Africa’s leading medical weight loss companies, Slender Wonder launched this initiative whereby selected individuals from all over South Africa could win a three-month weight-loss sponsorship. This life-changing prize includes doctor consultations, products, support, and supplements, and is valued at R 15 000.

Slender Wonder has been helping South Africans lose weight for over 45 years, with over 300 practitioners across the country and in Namibia. People who have lost weight via the program have reported multiple benefits including increased energy levels, general health improvements, more balanced hormones, and in many cases, lower chronic medication prescriptions thereafter.
