Hi, never tried Keto-Slimfast, but Keto is really easy to start. I have lost over a 150 pounds on low carb/Keto dieting. I started off really simple by eating at 12pm, eggs and turkey bacon, Or eggs and sausages, then at 5pm a large salad and chicken or fish, any protein. Snacks would be almonds, cheese, pickles. I just kept it really simple and the weight started following off. I was really heavy for it was difficult to exercise, but I went for walks.
Honestly, the best way to start is to track where you are. Once you have a week or two of accurate data look at where you are. The purpose isn't to beat yourself up, but simply to see where you are already doing what you need to be doing and where you can improve. Look at each meal/snack and focus on one good thing about that meal and one thing that you could do to improve that meal. So one meal might be the closest that you get to where you need to be calorie-wise, but you could make it better by adding lettuce, tomatoes and salsa. Another meal might have two generous portions of vegetables, but you need to reduce the amount of pasta with the generous portions of vegetables. Make small changes and they are more likely to stick. The inherent issue with shakes is that you don't really learn how to plan around actual food with them, which tends to lengthen the time it takes to lose weight and keep it off.

"I need something that shows me what to eat......."
I ask this sincerely; have you tried the library? Or reading any books on nutrition?

One look of the ingredient list on the Slimfast with all the emulsifiers, weird sweeteners along with palm and canola oils and I would say, take a pass. Yes, it has vitamins, proteins and minerals but it is full of so many non foods it can't be a healthy way to lose weight.

Have you read the ingredient list on that stuff?
It ain’t food, it’s a chemistry experiment at best, likely a low cost marketing ploy. Guess who’s the guinea pig?

I would suggest using real food in portion control servings. Think more fruit/veggies, lean meat (if you eat meat) and healthy oils. Think wholegrains, which are not the demon some diet-styles would have you believe. They are great for satiety and a myriad of healthy, essential nutrients. Think reducing junk to virtually nil, if you eat it. Think weighing your food for increased accuracy and enter it all into the Nutrition Tracker, then pay attention to the Nutrition Tracker results re calories, etc. and tweak your diet to ensure that you meet the various goals.
You can do this. You don't 'need' a 'diet' per se - you just need good, healthy, balanced nutrition - one that you can continue with the rest of your life!

Is there a specific health reason, like diabetes, insulin resistance, or a metabolic disorder, causing you want to do Keto Slimfast? Keto is a bit of a current diet buzz word and although it works very well for some people, it isn't for everyone.
Since you did find SparkPeople, I encourage you to give it a try. You mentioned you need help knowing what to eat. Did you know you can turn on meal plans through SparkPeople? If it comes back with something unavailable or you don't like, you can switch it out.

Since you came to their site, why not try the SparkPeople way? SlimFast does not show you how to eat healthy for the rest of your life.
