IT really depends on your goals and your price range. Slimfast has different fake additives and ingredients. It is on the cheaper side so that appeals to some, but when you look at it on a healthy scale, its not as great as others.


I drink Shakeology. It can be a meal replacement, but it doesnt necesarily have to replace a major meal. I drink it for breakfast, because I dont have much time to cook or eat. Some drink it after workouts or as a late night snack when they need calories and nutrition.

Shakeology has no fake ingredients, over 70 superfoods. With Shakeology I have more energy, I stay regular, I have no negative food cravings and I have become to the healthiest point in my life.

It can be up there in price for people. And its not for everone. When people are really dedicated to make the changes lifestyle change, thats when they invest in themselves.

I have some samples now, and I am placing another order on the 16th, if you would be interested in trying. I can message you more information if you would like :)

Is juicing or making your own shakes an option?

I prefer to eat my food.  I do like smoothies though...I typically have one for breakfast or for a snack:)

No. Plain and simple. I find for myself and lifestyle that if I'm too busy, I make myself a protein shake with almond milk and frozen fruit. I get calories, nutrition and the benefits of quick and easy. Without the consequence of deprivation. That's how I feel about those shakes. (Slim fast, herba life etc). We all
Have to do what we feel is in our best interest. So, it's just my opinion. Please find a better alternative.

if you read slim fast- it tells you to eat with it! *I got one package of it a few years ago and that was it...once I realised you were supposed to eat too I though what is the point?!

NOW- I would not do any of those  (no shakes, drinks, pills...)- I'd just eat regular food.

I skip meals as well then get ravenous.  So I pack cheesesticks, fruit or walnuts to bring with me.  Personally I prefer to eat my calories so the drink wouldn't work for me.  Good luck finding something that works for you.
