  • That's a good question, I was wondering as well b/c I just bought a case of it. The only problem is that is does NOT fill me up, I guess I need to get used to it. I hope to hear that it works!!!

  • it doesnt fill me either so what i do after i finish it is drink a big glass of cold water...that does the trick, well until i pee it out lol

  • Go to slimfast.com. They give you meal plans and even recipes. You allowed to have snacks, they have lists for you. Last night I made a honey-lime chicken recipe last night from their website and wow, simple and delicious!!! Like kennadismom, I drink tons of water.

  • I'm doing the slim fast diet and it's working very well. It's been 3 weeks and I've lost 9 pounds, I work so my schedule would be different from yours but here's what I do: nothing for breakfast (too rushed trying to get DD to daycare and myself to work on time) a slim fast shake and slim fast bar (preferably the chocolate ones) and whatever I want for dinner. And water with my dinner, no sodas.

  • Oh yeah, a big thing is to cut out any beverages other than water. The sodas and juices can screw up all the self discipline you do. There is a flavored water called VitaRain made by Kirkland and it has 0 calories and 0 fat grams. Something flavored to drink guilt free. All these successful responses are very encouraging!

  • I like to have a piece of fruit or some veggies with my shake. it helps fill me up and they are good for you so there is no guilt

  • make organic chocolate cocoa with organic fat-free milk, stirring in a TB canola oil while hot. Let cool in the fridge. Drink two of these a day with a multi-vitamin, and wha-la! Organic Slim-Fast.
