I don’t want to be the no-fun bee who always goes on health food rants but while Slim Fast will help you lose weight, it’s not all that good for you and it won’t help you develop lifelong healthy habits. Take a look at the ingredients instead of just the calorie/fat content…. it is almost all chemicals and artificial things.

No worries Lilyfaith, I was about to say the same thing.  So, ditto!

I agree with lilyfaith.  Probably the reason that it works is because it is a severe calorie restriction.  That doesn’t help you to learn how to choose good foods for you and what you should be eating.  I tried slimfast and I thought it tasted metallic and sort of gross but maybe the flavor changed since then.

I did SlimFast in college preparing for a cruise with my then-bf.  It’s basically a more nutritious form of startvation.  Yes, I def lost weight with it (especially once I started cutting the milk with water…) and it has fairly balanced vitamins in each serving, but it’s a liquid diet, and you WILL still feel hungry.

I’m much more a fan of a moderation/life-style change course of dieting, something that can be maintain forever and doesn’t blacklist or completely restrict anything.

Bottomline, yes it worked but I was also hungry all the time and had less engery so my workouts were less productive.

Instead of using slimfast which will restrict your calories to near starvation mode and pump you full of sugar you should just eat healthily and nutritously and get some exercise in. If you’re trying to lose weight and want it to stay off, a lifestyle change of proper eating and exercise is the best way.

I have to agree with lilyfaith, unfortunately – when I was young, my mother was determined to keep me small, so she put me on every diet that was known to man (including slim fast)… of course they never worked, but my metabolism has been messed up since.  Now that I’m older, I find that the ONLY think that helps me is to eat really clean and to work out.

Slim fast might work for a quick fix, but it is not full of the right nutrients, and lilyfaith is right, it’s packed with chemicals, additives, and fake sugars.

If you are looking to drop a couple of pounds before the big day, I say go for it, but if you are looking for long term, sustained weight loss, or are looking to drop a larger number of pounds.. I’d try something else..

Just my honest opinion.

I agree about slimfast being full of junk! and not full of what you need to actually lose the weight and keep it off.

<—has lost 23 pounds on WeightWatchers and another 20 to go before the wedding.

 

I love Weight Watchers.
