  • The shakes taste like crap and make your urine smell funny. You'll lose weight but when you try to eat like a normal person you;ll gain it all back.

  • Fat free milk, water, sugar, cocoa (processed with alkali), gum Arabic, calcium caseinate, cellulose gel, canola oil, potassium phosphate, cellulose gum, soybean lecithin, mono and dyglicerides, artificial flavour, carrageenan, maltodextrin and dextrose.


    Cellulose is the filler they use to make you feel full. It is maily obtained from wood pulp & cotton. It is used to make paper, cardboard, cellophane, rayon & bio-fuels.


    There are WAY better ways to lose weight. IMHO.

  • the shakes aren't very good and although they will help you loose weight, when you go off the diet, you will gain it all back, most people I've known on it gain all the weight back plus more weight...I'd strongly suggest just watching what you eat and be sure you're watching your portion sizes...this is the most healthy and best way to loose and will allow you to keep it off which is my ultimate goal...Good Luck

  • I don't necessarily need to lose weight. I am a single working mom of a very young baby. I'm on my own with no help, including from the father. I thought the slimfast might be an easy way to get my nutrients in for one meal since i rarely have time to cook anything but microwave foods or frozen pizzas. Maybe it'd keep me a little healthier since those foods are bad.

  • There are way too many calories in those things, and they didn't fill me up sop I was still eating a lot.
