Help! Has anyone lost weight with Slim Fast?

Does it really work? Does it have any side effects? & Is it okay to use while breastfeeding? I am thinking of trying it. I do walk about 1-2 miles 4 times a week, but it seems as if I can't lose those last 10 pounds. I do try to eat healthy but I think it is more the quantity of food. So I know slim fast can help. Hopefully anyway.

  • yes it does work well. Doctors do like Slim Fast for weight loss. I have used it for lunch time only and I do like it. I have saved a lot of money taking a slim fast can for lunch and not buying food. It saved me about $100 a month.

  • quick fix diets never work, especially if you are looking for long term results. you should start exercising, that is the best way! i bought this dance video from walmart, and lost 21 lbs in 21/2 months. if you are going to diet, you need to eat heathly foods. i dont think slim fast will fill you up. i buy healthy soup for lunch, ends up bing 110-120 calories if you eat the whole can, fills you up and not many calories. there are also a ton of low calorie recipes on yahoo that you can try. good food, less calories!!!

  • Hi, I am on day 2 of Slim-Fast, and so far dropped 1 pound. I know it's only water for now, but 1 pound of water gone is better than it staying!!!! I like this plan, it's easy to follow and relatively affordable if you do it to the letter. Anyone else want to buddy up with me for slim-Fast feel free to chatterbox or message me.
