  • What is in slim fast these days? I would have to look at the ingredients, but most low-calorie meal replacements are fine, as long as they don't have stimulants in them.

    I would use muscle milk light. I know that those are safe, and they taste really good. Try out the Mocha Joe.

  • As long as you are still getting @2500 calories (healthy) per day and it doesn't have stimulants, then you should be fine.

  • I actually asked this question about a year ago, lol. Mostly the answers I got were no don't try it. If you look at the ingredients you'll see why. Slim Fast has some funky things in it! However, it's up to you. I drink coffee and Diet Dr. Pepper, in moderation, while breastfeeding and so far it hasn't affected my children :)
