I thought the Slimfast diet was supposed to get you losing weight fast, but I find that after 5 days on it I still weigh the same. Total calorie intake per day has been 1200-1300 against 2442 for maintenance of weight. I am baffled by this. Will I be a lard arse for life? Has this happened to anyone else?
No, I have a spare set and I weight the same on both. I am really the same weight and I am so starving I can hardly see straight. I honestly don't know what to do for the best apart from have a proper meal and start again.
Rotisserie chicken, cottage cheese, balsamic vinegar, loads of salad? I'm doing the Cambridge diet. Not a smidgen of conventional food has passed my lips since Wednesday. As long as I drink water in between shakes I'm not hungry.
Well I cracked and had some WW tomato soup, two pieces of toast, 2oz cheese, and some crackers. Felt like a new woman and I could finally poo. I think my metabolism had slowed down to something glacial.
I'm not at all sure metabolism slows down like that - sounds more like your digestive tract had. Aren't you supposed to have a proper meal if you do slim fast? Make sure it includes lots of green veg, that'll help fill you up but move things along.
I did find the slim fast stuff really sweet - I don't normally eat much processed food so I am not used to it at all.
Today I have been eating along the lines of Weight Watchers core foods and had skimmed milk porridge, then an apple and skinny cappuccino mid-morning, then gazpacho, pumpkin ravioli, salad, prosciutto, and a peach for lunch. I feel pretty OK on this and not dizzy any more.
I was eating masses of raw fruit and veg and drank litres of water while having the slimfast shakes but everything literally just stopped working.
I did slim fast for around four weeks and lost nothing. I was constantly hungry. Some of the bars gave me a dodgy tummy and I got sick of sweet stuff. I now calorie count using my fitness pal and have lost 20lbs in 3 months. I think slim fast is a waste of money.
