#Slim-Fast #Shakes #Review -

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast. All opinions are 100% mine.
I'm always looking for the next greatest healthy diet idea. My weight fluctuates all the time so with the upcoming holiday season and Thanksgiving behind us, I really could use some help! This is the first time I have tried Slim-Fast. I've always been a bit skeptical of meal replacement shakes but I figured, let's give it a try; I've got nothing to lose!

With my coupon in hand, I rushed out to the store before work one day and found various varieties of Slim-Fast Shakes. There's the powder-form and then there's the bottled premade shakes. Well, obviously, since I was on my way to work andreally lacking in meals when I work, I picked up a pack of the premade shakes. French Vanilla was one of two flavors available at the store I was at but I like French Vanilla, so no biggie!

These shakes are to be used as part of the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan:
  1. Pick 3 nourishing snacks a day – Slim·Fast 100-calorie snack bars, nuts, fruits and/or veggies,
  2. 2 shakes/meal bars -Choose two Slim·Fast shakes or meal bars.
  3. 1 balanced meal Enjoy one 500-calorie balanced meal per day. 
Try it out as a substitute for a healthier, weight loss solution this holiday season. At a total of ~1000 calories a day, that's 1/2 the amount of calories people usually eat in a day, maybe even more! Its definitely enough for some weight loss! I thought the taste was actually pretty good, kind of tasted like the French Vanilla Nestle milk I sometimes get. My bottle was only 180 calories and filled me up! They say it has up to 4 hours of hunger control and contains 10g of protein and 5g of fiber. I honestly think that the tub of powder that you mix into the shakes would've been a slightly better deal. However, I am on the run a lot so I chose portability and ease over cost. These are sold in Wal-mart, Target, Safeway, Kroger, online, and many other grocers and drug stores. There are lots of other flavors including Lower Carb Vanilla Creme, Lower Carb Creamy Chocolate, Strawberries ‘N Cream, Rich Chocolate Royal, and Creamy Milk Chocolate. I'd love to try the Strawberries 'N Cream too!
