My weight wasn't an issue until I had two kids in two years! Then I had these 10-20 lbs that I just can't seem to get rid of. Part of the problem is I don't have the time, nor do I put in the time, to really work out and lose it. Not to mention I honestly don't have the time nor energy to cook healthy meals everyday and take care of my busy kids. I was trying to run every day and that was going great... at least for two weeks and then my schedule got so busy I gave it up. It looks like motivation is what is lacking on my end so I need something quick and easy to help me with weight loss.
A few years back my brother tried Slim-Fast and loved it. He said it really kicked him into gear for losing weight. He did have a few complaints about it but overall said it was more of a success than a failure. So I figured why not try it?
I received a free coupon to try out the NEW Slim- Fast shakes. Yes, they have a new formula and a new plan! The new Slim-Fast shakes can provide up to four hours of hunger control. They also have 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals! All this is supposed to make it easier to stick to a weight loss plan which is exactly what I need! And they come in 5 delicious flavors: creamy milk chocolate, French Vanilla, Rich Chocolate Royale, Cappuccino Delight and Strawberries N Cream! YUMMY!
There is also the new 3-2-1 plan.
• 3 Snacks: Three nourishing snacks a day such as Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars, fruit, nuts or veggies
• Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars provide a delicious calorie-controlled snack to help curb sweet cravings between meals
• 2 Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day: Slim-Fast shakes and meal bars are delicious and satisfying, providing the balanced nutrition of a meal and up to four hours of hunger control
• 1 Balanced Meal: Enjoy one balanced 500-calorie meal per day. As a rule, try to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and a quarter with whole grains.
Now for my tasting test I chose the Creamy Milk Chocolate. Chocolate Milk Shakes are my favorite so I thought this would be a good choice. I also chose the pre-made shakes over the mix because I wanted to pick the easiest option. At first I was worried that they would taste like most other weight loss milkshakes, gritty and no taste. However, creamy is the perfect word for these shakes! They were creamy and smooth. They also held me over until lunch time! I normally hate to eat breakfast because I'm hungry again in a few hours but this honestly worked until it was time for lunch! Perfect! I can't wait to try more!
So if you're worried about putting on those extra pounds during the holidays (i know I am) then pack a few of these when you go visit family and when the others are eating their ice cream or pie desserts just pull out a yummy shake and let them know that you are indulging in something that is just as good! :)
