New And Improved Slim Fast – Final Thoughts

New And Improved Slim Fast – Final Thoughts

I’ve now completed my week of Slim Fast and with a 3lb loss my BMI has dropped from 29.6 to 29.1. This is a huge step in the right direction and I feel great.

I’ve enjoyed my extra week on Slim Fast and the added variety of the noodle boxes helped keep the boredom away. I do have to admit that I only tried the spicy thai noodles as I’m a vegetarian but they were really tasty. I couldn’t believe they only counted as a snack as they really filled me up. I was a bit worried that they might taste watery as they do ‘swim’ in liquid a little bit but the flavour was great. They also made my house smell amazing!!

I did however get my other half to try the spaghetti bolognese and the chicken tikka. He was as impressed as I was and for once he wasn’t raiding the biscuit tin mid afternoon!

I’ve also found a new love for the meal replacement shakes and especially the cafe latte flavour. It was really great to see that Slim Fast had taken on board the feedback they have received recently and have lowered the sugar content of their shakes. I found that a massive down point when I first did the Slim Fast Challenge so was really impressed with the new shakes. The rest of the brand is due to have its sugar lowered in the near future.

With the introduction of the noodle pots I’ve enjoyed Slim Fast much more this time. I haven’t felt like I’m constantly filling myself up with sugar and I have also found myself fuller for longer. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Slim Fast again as it definitely seems to work for me.

The Slim Fast Challenge – Day 5

The Slim Fast Challenge – Day 5

Today is day 5 and I’ve yet to fall off the wagon! I’ve actually found doing Slim Fast a lot easier than I thought I would.

I haven’t suffered from any rumbling tummy and have enjoyed everything I’ve tried so far. I am totally in love with the snack chocolate bars. They taste like you’re having a Mars or a Snickers but are a fraction of the calories.

I’ve enjoyed some really nice balanced dinners some of which have come from the recipe ideas on the Slim Fast website. My boys really liked the fish finger pie and for the first time in ages we had a dinner time without a single complaint about the food!

My only complaint so far is that I feel like I’m constantly eating sugar. The shakes and meal replacement bars have really high sugar content. Having 2 of these a day is nearly your recommended daily allowance of sugar straight away.

The bit you’re waiting for though. I got on the scales for the first time this morning and so far 3lbs have disappeared which I’m really pleased about.
