  • I tried it. No, it didn't work for me.

  • My mom use to put me on slimfast diets all the time when I was a little girl. It's nothing more than chocolate milk with vitamins. It works in the short run.

  • I followed it and gained weight. It all depends on how your body works.

  • It would probably work if you followed it completely. I just don't think a shake for breakfast and a shake for lunch is satisfying for ANYONE! Although, I think the powder mix is yummy! I used to put it in the magic bullet with some ice and milk and make a yummy shake. I think it better serves as a replacement meal when you just don't have time to eat and need something quick.

  • I have heard that you have to be careful with it. I know I had a roommate once that used it at the advice of her doctor to gain weight. She had to drink it with meals.

  • Slim Fast is TERRIBLE. IT totally messes with your bloodsugar and is just NOT a good idea at all. You need to be eating REAL whole foods and drinking water and exercising, drinking a shake with nasty ingredients is not a good plan.
