Cheaters never prosper....I sure didnt

Pros:Well..it worked in close friends

Cons:Its hard to stick to their proposed schedule

During my teenage years I tried every diet shake, powder, bar and pill on the market. So when some of my friends started taking Slim Fast, I jumped on the wagon and started doing it too.

I used the regular Slim Fast powder. You are supposed to mix it with fat free milk and blend it into a shake. Shakes are for breakfast and lunch and you are "supposed" to have a healthy dinner. Slim Fast contains vitamins and minerals that are important to the body while trying to lose weight. They are low in fat and calories.

To me, slim fast tasted like nasty chocolate flavored chalk (I am sure that they have changed the recipe some since my time using it, but 7-8years ago) it was pretty gross. Aside from my obvious dislike for the taste of it, my problem with this was sticking to their proposed schedule.

When I woke up in the morning I was usually pretty hungry. Drinking a shake did not satisfy me, I needed something solid. Before my lunch shake came along I had usually cheated and had something "bad" to eat. My second mistakes came around mid-afternoon. Shakes for lunch didn't do the trick of satisfying my hunger either. The snack machines called my name and between classes I would sneak in a candy bar.

Dinner was a disaster. By the end of a day with just shakes (and a secret candy bar) I was so hungry that salads and other lowfat foods did not suffice. My whole day revolved around cheating the shakes.

Slim fast has worked for a lot of people. I, however, did not have the willpower to stick to it. I believe Slim fast can work if you follow the directions. It takes dedication and a desire to really want to lose the weight.

Slim fast by itself won't take all your weight off, exercise is essential to help get the weight off...and keep it off.

Slim fast is one of the cheaper diet aids on the market today. They have an assorted variety of flavors to choose from. I mainly stuck to the chocolate and strawberry flavors but they do offer vanilla as well. Aside from the powder, Slim fast now comes in single serving cans for people on the go.

Although I did not have much luck with Slim Fast, I would recommend it to others as I have seen its success in close friends.
