Slim fast vs boost
If you can handle some fat it should work for you. Once you have lost your weight you can stop drinking Slimfast and maybe add an Ensure or Boost to your daily replacement meal drink. Fast forward to today, March 31, I've been on this diet for a little over 2 weeks. I have been on mg pegasys and ribavirin for the past 22 weeks and it has been very rough. Any time I use a blender , I get horrendous gas and bloating. You can't be drinking booze or wine every weekend, or eat a half gallon of ice cream per week.

What You Can Eat and What You Can't

Slim Fast, Carnation breakfast or Ensure?

Need to lose I have been using Slim-Fast for over a year and have managed easily to take 20 lbs off and keep it off. I freeze the shakes, like them better that way, and use the plan 3 times a week. I originally decided to try it because it has been around for so long that I thought it must work for someone. I saw so many negative comments that I decided to obtain an account and write a review.

I ran into a lady in Walmart and saw that she had Slim-Fast in buggy and asked what she thought about it. She says that she has lost weight drinking it but was dieting too, so she has changed her eating habits a bit. She mostly bragged on curbing the appetite. I was all in then. I bought a big box because I will try about anything once.

I bought the 4 hr hunger control. Doesn't work on me, I still am hungry. I bought creamy chocolate. Does it taste good? If you like the smell of moth balls, that is the sense. I don't mind the protein texture, which some may describe as chalked. I understand that, but the taste I would rather drink a flavored whey protein drink or Svelte called hello beautiful which is an organic protein shake also sold at Walmart. The cappuccino is awesome, and the taste is unmatched. Good luck if you like Slim-Fast and their new flavor.

I had tried it before and didn't remember it tasting so bad. They may need to rethink it and bring back the flavor that worked. Why are companies always wanting to change things were.

They were just fine before. It has been over 8 years since I last used Slim-Fast drinks in my daily diet. My busy schedule and now turning 52, I have packed on a few extra pounds, more likely over 20 lbs. Thank God I remembered what helped me in my past.

I turned back to the drinks that were formerly in a can, now in a great plastic bottle. I freeze them overnight and by lunch time they are perfectly thawed into a deliciously cold drink.

I have IBS and was afraid that it may trigger problems, but fortunately they haven't bothered me one bit. They help take the cravings for the sweets I crave so often far away and fill me enough so when I go home I desire a healthy dinner. I am on my third week of using Slim-Fast again and have noticed a huge difference on how I look and feel. My wife also enjoys the results I have received. I love all three flavors. Dark being my favorite.

I am writing because I have only one complaint about your product. I canNOT open the container very easily.

I have attempted several different ways, but to very little avail. Also, due to this situation, I can never "grab and go" with Slim Fast. In this world of hurry, hurry, hurry I would love to have a SlimFast to drink in my car as a snack or whatever.

I love the creamy-milk chocolate and drink it daily. I have been using Slim-Fast creamy milk chocolate for years and love it UNTIL you changed it and the new one "milk chocolate" is undrinkable.

Are you ever going to change it back? Before the change when I needed to lose a few pounds it worked very good. I only have a return receipt because I always buy 2 8-packs and could only return 1 that was unopened. I tried all the products, bars, shakes etc. I got so sick I had to go to the hospital.

I was hospitalized for gastrointestinal issues. The Doctors told me to stop using Slim-Fast and that was what was making me sick. Slim-Fast - it sure tastes good if you like being nausea for the whole day. I got the powder and mixed it with water. It was fine before but this is my third can and only the second time of drinking a shake out of this one and as it says above so sick for the day. I've been on this diet for a little over 2 weeks.

I've never had this problem with my pre-mixed drink. Oh well it must be just like Pedigree I fed my three dogs that almost died and that was all they ate no snacks and they had seizures and bloody diarrhea but they don't poison things.

Ive been drinking SlimFast shakes for a couple of months now. Not to lose weight by using them as a meal replacement, but more so to lose weight by adding more protein to my diet. I have yet to find a protein drink that I like. However, I tried the high protein shakes and actually think theyre pretty good. I prefer the creamy chocolate which reminds me of liquid pudding really.

There is an aftertaste, but it's not unbearable I did experience some cramping in the beginning, but it is my understanding that it is because I was taking in more fiber which my body was not used to. I do not have any cramping issues at this time. The cramping was very mild anyway, so it wouldnt have been the worst thing if it did continue.

My overall opinion is I think they are a good alternative to protein powders. They taste pretty good, theyre filling because of the content - many nutrients! And they help you lose weight! Have had a long relationship with Slim-Fast. Easy for a busy woman. Often wished I could buy them at the airport before a flight.

However, I am not happy with so called new and improved Slim-Fast. Do not like the taste Now I've purchased Kellogg's protein shake I love Slimfast, I lost over 30 lbs after my second child.

Simply had one for breakfast then a snack like a piece of fruit or a Slimfast bar. I normally drink chocolate. Those of you who have stomach cramps, the reason why is the fiber. If you are not getting enough fiber in your daily diet then add fiber suddenly, normally you will have gas or cramping 'til your digestive system gets used to it. Everything we eat has something in it.

You won't be on Slimfast forever if you stick to a good diet. Once you have lost your weight you can stop drinking Slimfast and maybe add an Ensure or Boost to your daily replacement meal drink. I honestly don't know why so many reviewers are having issues with the Slim-Fast advanced nutrition.

All of the products are delicious and keep me feeling full. I will agree with the one review that the coffee shake makes my urine smell like coffee for a day. Other than that I love this product. I bought a box of 4 hour control caramel Almond Hunger control bars. It makes you throw up.

I guess Slim Fast wants people to lose weight by getting sick eating their products. Shame on Slim Fast. First I thought maybe the bars have expired date on it and Wal Mart is selling them not knowing is outdated but when I read on the packaging it had another 5 months before it expired. I have been asked by my physician to lose weight before surgery. I had decided to try the SlimFast Protein Drink.

I immediately decided against this product. Myself and others have written to some of the companies ex: Almond Milk and they have removed this product. Listen to what we say.

I've been heavy most of my life and I've never been a great dieter. I decided to switch it up and try some meal replacement shakes. I went with Slim-Fast. Used unsweetened vanilla soy and the Chocolate Royale powder, blended it with ice, so it was exactly like drinking a choc milk shake. I started on January 7th and replaced 2 meals a day, a balanced dinner with little to no exercise.

The most I did was a 30 minute walk to and from my daughter's school. To date, I have lost 70 lbs. I couldn't be more excited. Start weight was a whoopin lbs and I am currently lbs.

I would definitely recommend this and have to my friends and family. Great product and has changed my life forever. I am 37 years old and have recently decided to get serious about my weight loss. I anticipate a most challenging journey with a goal of losing pounds.

I was enthusiastic about eating one balanced meal and substituting the other two with Royal Chocolate Slim-Fast. I did this faithfully for 2 weeks. At first, I felt great.

I used unsweetened almond milk to make the shakes. They were enjoyable and satisfying. However, at the end of the two weeks, I had only lost four pounds which is ok, but it should've been more with such a drastic caloric intake shift. I also included exercise in my daily routine. The deal breaker for me was my face.

I started getting large pimples on my face like I have not had in years. My skin has always been pretty clear throughout adulthood. I'm deducing that all the sugar and chocolate wrecked my complexion. Prior to purchase, I was aware of the chemical content and the reviews expressing concern over the unhealthy ingredients in Slim-Fast, but I still wanted to give it a try.

I did, and now I'm moving on to something else. I have been a regular Slim-Fast user for almost 15 years. My daily breakfast would consist of a Slim-Fast and an oatmeal breakfast bar. It was a very convenient way for me to eat breakfast in the morning. It was never about using it as a weight loss drink, it was about starting my day with a nutritious breakfast. When I went to the store to pick up more this week I saw that you had changed your drinks.

I would buy the Chocolatey Royale. Your new drink is called Creamy Chocolate. And you cut down from 8 bottles to 4 bottles. Fine, I can live with that. But when I tried your new drink while driving to work I had to pull the car over because I thought I was going to vomit.

I couldn't believe how horrible this new drink tasted. I thought maybe I didn't shake the drink enough before I drank it. But no, even after shaking it my Slim-Fast was possibly the most vile thing I have ever tasted in my life.

I poured the rest of my drink onto the street and drove to work very disappointed. I really don't know what I'm going to do about my breakfast. I have been driving from store to store to see if they had any old Slim-Fast remaining and I have about enough to get through to the end of the month. I am hoping that with enough negative feedback you might go back to the old Slim-Fast. You probably won't but I will try to remain as optimistic as possible. Yours truly, a very disappointed ex-Slim-Fast user.

I bought Slim-Fast power 4 days ago. The first time that I drank it at night, it gave me really bad stomach cramps and gases. I was thinking could be the milk and I decided to use only water in the second time. In this case was worse, the stomached was really painful. I wake up with cramps at 4 o clock in the morning and I felt like throwing up everything I will throw away the rest of it.

This is a really bad product. Slim-Fast carries a line of nutrient-enriched bars, snacks, pre-packaged meals, protein powders, and dietary supplements. However, it is most known for its canned shakes that work as meal replacements. Try to reduce your calorie intake to lose weight but not too drastically as to cause your body's metabolism to slow down.

Consult a nutrition professional for more help. Best of health to you You need a good helping, after a hard workout , of protien, slimfast has only about max. Muscle milk has 23 grams and some protien bars have more. I would balance the amnt of prot against the calories that come with these choices. If use protien sup powdr b sure to read lable and understand all in it.

You may be not getting enough calories. There are many version-check! The figure is mandatory on the label-check. Slimfast is adequate in protein but has plenty of sugar -check. Drink plenty of fluids! Convenience; losing weight , etc!

Protein, here, would get bored You may be ok but it would be best to work with a dietician. You can actually get "too little" calories and your body will go into starvation mode. In this, it purposely retains fat as a protective measure. There are other metabolic changes. When getting caloric intake down this low, it is best managed by a professional. But calories burned will have to exceed calories consumed to lose weight.

You need to burn off more calories than you take in to loose 1 lb. That should be fine.: Just take your synthroid thyroxine as usual daily. Healthtap Doctors are asked not to endorse specific brands or product lines.

Weight loss products are generally a waste of money and,they do not speed up the process. Quick weight loss is rarely a good idea anyway because the loss is not maintained.

In fact, people often gain the,weight back plus some more. Your best bet is a healthy diet with regular cardio exercise. Keep your weight loss to 2lbs or less weekly for the best chance at maintaining. Rather than rely on pills start increasing your exercise routine. The best weight loss product is lifestyle change and exercise.
