It Just Tastes Gross

Jun 14, 2000
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Like any other diet, it probably works in the short term

Cons:Did I mention that it tastes gross?

Diet aids are bunk, to be sure, but Slim-fast doesn't pretend to help you lose weight with any of its ingredients. The premise is that the low-fat, vitamin-pumped shake is delicious and sufficient as a breakfast and lunch; and, of course, you get to eat that "sensible" dinner provided it's under something insane like 500 calories.

Well, when I was in high school, my mother bought me a week's worth of shakes because she hated to see me rushing out of the house without breakfast. Bless her, she didn't even realize that these shakes were for neurotic, self-deluding dieters (but then again, she didn't buy me Ensure, because she thought those shakes were only suitable for her father and other senior citizens).

As I popped one out to drink, one of the girls I drove to school told me she had lost 5 pounds with Slim-fast. I sputtered. "Yes, it's true, I really did!" she protested. It never occurred to her that I nearly spit out the sickly-sweet, unnaturally textured shake because it tasted like thinned down wallpaper paste, not because I was amazed that she had lost weight on the program.

Well, I finished the can because I was starving, but lo and behold, I was no more sated after ingesting that horrid concoction than before. So, this shake is neither tasty nor satisfying. But Brooke Shields and Fergie sure looked good, no?
