This week I had an opportunity to test out Slim Fast’s Shakes by Slim-Fast and I figured this was a great time to post about it since most of you are making your new year’s weight loss resolutions or dreading the impending holiday weight gain! These Slim Fast Shakes are part of the 3-2-1 Diet Program, which consists of 3 Snacks, 2 Slim Fast Shakes or Meal Bars & (1) Balanced 500- Calorie Meal per day. (I love that it’s easy to remember!) The idea is that if you replace two meals a day with these Shakes or Meal Bars that this will help you lose weight over time.
Here are my thoughts on the Creamy Milk Chocolate Slim Fast Shakes:
Consistency: I’m a big consistency person and I’ve tasted other ‘diet shakes’ in the past and they have been gritty. Yuck. But I can honestly tell you, this shake was soo SMOOVE ( my word for things that are really smooth). There was NO grittiness at all. It felt like I was drinking a cross between chocolate milk and a chocolate shake. It was filling!
Taste: Fantastic. Seriously, the creaminess from the consistency was so nice that the flavor blended really well. The only, and I mean only, little thing I did pick up was a bit of artificial sweetener, but if you drink Diet Soda…you are accustomed to that flavor anyway. So I really enjoyed it.
What I liked most about theses shakes is that they are easy. My biggest problem when eating right is not having enough time to prepare a full meal, especially breakfast & lunchtime. So I usually end up by gnawing on crackers, toast or the occasional chips & salsa. I like the thought that I could go in the fridge and drink one of these for lunch and get the nutritional benefit and actually feel full.
The new Slim-Fast shakes are available in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger and online at Amazon.com and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook.
