It's no secret that I have had a weight problem my entire life. I have tried every diet known to man, and the only thing that worked for me was stress. When my husband left, I was so stressed I lost a bunch of weight. Last check, I was down just about one hundred pounds. Unfortunately, I still have about fifty or so pounds left to lose.
I have tried Slim-Fast in the past, but to be honest, it just didn't work for me. Now, when I say the past, I mean about twenty years ago. I still can't believe I am old enough to say that! Back then, Slim-Fast was all about having a shake for breakfast, another for lunch, and a sensible dinner. In theory, it sounded good, but man, did I miss eating! And the shakes were terrible. I remember having to mix them myself, because they only came as a powder. They always tasted gritty, no matter how much I mixed them.
I recently tried their new shakes, and I was extremely impressed. Thankfully, you no longer have to mix them for yourself. They come in single serve bottles that you can take with you anywhere. I bought my shakes at my local grocery store, but they are available nationwide at Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger. You can also find them online at Amazon.com and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook. While they still encourage you to have two shakes a day and a sensible dinner, their new plan includes snacks! That's right! You can also replace the shakes with their meal bars. It's all part of the new Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan. Three snacks, two shakes (or meal bars) and one meal. In a normal day I don't eat that much, so this plan seems very doable to me. And check out how yummy their snack bars look:
The new shakes are delicious. I tried the Rich Chocolate Royale, and it was not gritty at all. In fact, I found it to be smooth and creamy. I am excited to try all the new flavors, which are:
• Creamy Milk Chocolate
• French Vanilla
• Rich Chocolate Royale
• Cappuccino Delight
• Strawberries N’ Cream
I plan on making a lot of changes in the upcoming new year, and the most important change is going to be to my weight. I want to get healthy, and being at a normal weight is important for that. I "liked" the Slim-Fast facebook page so that I can keep up with not only what they have to say, but also to encourage, and be encouraged by, those like me who are trying to lose weight.
