As you may have seen here a couple of weeks ago, I started out on the SlimFast 321 plan for 2 weeks. It’s a really easy to follow plan which comprises of 3 snacks a day, 2 meal replacement and 1 600 calorie evening meal.
Yes! I was surprised by how well I stuck to this diet which I believe to be a combination of a large healthy dinner along with lots of snacks throughout the day. I loved keeping one of my 3 snacks for late in the evening when I started feeling peckish especially if I had an early dinner with the children. Also I think that the snacks are appealing and being similar to crisps and chocolate is always a bonus!
Did I enjoy the taste of the SlimFast snacks and shakes?
I have to say I’m very happy with all of the SlimFast based food that I ate, obviously there are some flavours I prefer over others but for me the chocolate shake is heavenly although I also enjoy vanilla and caramel temptation. The snacks are all very tasty particularly the Cheddar flavour bites and the Heavenly Chocolate Delight snack bar. The meal replacement bars were all good.
No! Quite simply I think due to the amount of daily snacks, I didn’t have to go more than a few hours between eating something. I know on other diets where you only get one snack a day it can leave you longing for food between meals. I found the evening meal of 600 calories generous and would often have a meal of 300-400 calories then also add in a yoghurt and fruit for dessert.
The all important bit – did I lose weight?
Yes!! A grand total of 8lbs!!!!
I’m so happy with this and it’s really given me a boost to losing more still. I feel so much better, my eating is much more regulated and my clothes are a little looser. I feel really inspired to carry on with SlimFast, although have just taken a few days off, enjoying a drop of wine and a pizza! I’ve already bought some powder shakes for breakfast and just need to get some other bits and I’m ready to go again in a bid to lose some more weight in time for the summer. Ideally I’d like to drop a couple of dress sizes but I’d rather take it slowly in order to be able to maintain the weight loss after.
SlimFast has definitely been a success for me and is a diet that suits me, my lifestyle and eating habits. It also helps that I enjoy the products and having to only prepare one meal a day means it’s easy to stick to and breakfast, lunch and snacks are easy to grab and go – perfect for my busy, hectic lifestyle of work and looking after two young children.
I’d recommend SlimFast and will be using it again now to continue my weight loss and again in the future whenever I want to drop a few lbs!
Why not give it a try and you too can loose some weight before the summer weather finally appears!
