For years now, even before I was looking at weight loss and healthier eating, I have had a Slimfast every morning (just can't look at food early in the day, YUKKY). Now I am keeping track and being more careful, I have one at breakfast and lunch, with some fresh fruit or veggies as snacks in between. I never get hungry, I never eat any other sweets, nor do I crave sweets.
I am bothered by one thing on Sparkpeople however, there are 235 calories in Slimfast and the 'My Nutrition' Tracker says it is only 180 ??? WHY ? ! emoticon

SLIMFAST, THEN emoticon THEN ANOTHER SLIMFAST, THEN emoticon THEN DINNER --- it works for me, I have lost lots of lbs. doing this since I started this at the end of January 2012.

Good morning, just another input from a fellow sparks, I tried Slimfast for a month but did not see any results, I ws constantly hungry and the sugar contant made me crave more sugary snacks.

Maybe it worked for some people but it did not work for me.

Good Morning..........Thank you all for the great info. I'll probably pass on the shakes except in an emergency.

I know my daughter and her husband do 'Fit for Life' and they always make shakes with fruit and whey protein as one of their 6 mini meals. When I was still working once in awhile I would do a slim fast shake in the morning cause it was fast. I also think there are better nutrition choices available if you have the time.

Thank You for the information. I did not know that your body handles solids and liquid diets differently. I'll not do the liquid diet thing then.

There's an interesting article somewhere in Spark that talks about how your body recognizes solids and liquids differently. The shakes are calorie dense and might not give you a sense of fullness.

Bottom line- there may be better food choices out there for you, in place of a shake. I only post this because I have your best interest in mind and want you to have all the facts before trying a liquid-based diet as part of a meal plan.

Best of luck, and wishing you well!!!

Check but I'm sure there is a SLIM FAST TEAM here.

Just my opinion but Slim Fast has a lot of "hidden" sugar. I used to eat the granola bars and then I looked at the ingredients and I stopped. Plus I never lost any weight eating those bars.

i drink EAS Strawberry Low Carb - I'm diabetic, and sometimes those fill me up if I'm craving something sweet! I, personally, do NOT LIKE SLimfast!

Is there anyone else who uses Slim Fast or a product like it to have for a snack or meal.
