  • if you can afford the upkeep of the product 3/4 times a day, exercising and eating right yeah... but then again count calories, exercising and eating smaller portions works too.

  • Slim Fast is basically losing water weight. It's filled with fiber. So, you aren't going to keep the weight off without a lifestyle change. You have to learn to cut down on portion sizes and add exercise to your diet.

  • I have a slimfast shake every morning for breakfast before going to work, quick breakfast. Sometimes when i wants to lose weight, i have one for dinner, but for it to work and keep me fuller longer i add Whey Protein powder to it, and fruit. I get the vanilla powder kind you add to milk, i put it in blender with a scoop of protein powder & few pieces of frozen fruit. Yes, i do lose weight when i skip dinner & have a slimfast shake instead, saves alot of calories.

  • it's never worked for me....a drink is not a meal, it doesn't satisfy me....I would drink my shake and be starving. It's a waste of time and money!

  • Careful with the Slimfast shakes, I know someone who had kidney stones and needed surgery because of them. If you want a meal replacement shake, please talk to me. I have lost 10 pounds in one month (not being really strict with the plan) on Arbonne's 30 day feeling fit kit. All products are vegan certified, easily digested and produce results. Good luck...I am working on my next 10.

  • I think Slim Fast tastes terrible! If you are looking for a meal replacement shake, you need to try Shakeology! It is doctor approved and has 70 essential nutrients.
