don't do it

Don't do this to yourself. It tastes terrible, and the only way you'll lose weight on this stuff is if it's all you let yourself eat, and since it doesn't really make you feel any less hungry, you won't be able to manage that for long.

The only weight loss regimen that's ever helped me at all is exercise. It's dull and difficult, but so is trying to chug down stuff like this.

Youd Better Slim Fast Because You Cant Keep This Up Long

When I was finally thoroughly frustrated with myself and my relationship with food, I decided to really tone it down a bit. Frustrated with having to pick and choose and count calories and avoid foods, I decided that the Slim Fast option was definitely the way to go.
While the simplicity of the products instructions was a relief - A Shake for Breakfast and Lunch as well as two snacks and then your dinner - I only happily kept up this process for a week. After those 7 days I had absolutely had it with shakes and would do ANYthing to not drink them. Even if it meant only have my two snacks before dinner and that's it. Although I lost a few pounds that first week, it came right back on when I returned to eating normally of course.

Does actually keep you rather satisfied for 3 to 4 hours.

Tastes great as long as it is cold.

Tastes horrible if it is slightly warm.

Not enough variety in flavors or consistency to keep you interested.

I bought some of thes for a fast breakfast and to help lose weight. I was not satisfied in more ways than one. First, there is no way one of those shakes could fill me up and give me the energy I need to shuffle two kids around. Secondly, the taste is not that great and leaves me feeling sick. This may not be the case for everyone, but it was for me. This is not a product I would use to lose pounds.

If you are like me, you don't have much of an appetite in the morning. I actually feel sick to my stomach, so eating even a banana in the morning is out of question. It comes down to solid foods, I cannot hold them down. After seeking out many alternatives, including fruit smoothies that would leave me feeling hungry after an hour, I chose Slim Fast to try out. Not only does it stay down, it tastes good and really fills me up. 1 week's supply is $7.99, so you are looking at a monthly budget of $32 for breakfast. Not bad!

I think slim fast is good for a quick nutrition hit on the run but for the taste I usually opt out and go buy some fruit and a package of turkey.

Easy to find and use

Not as nutritional as some may claim, can't replace a real meal!
