Anyone else using Slimfast?

I have a lot of weight to lose due to medication and being in hospital. I started 3.5 weeks ago and have lost 7lbs. I like it because it is so easy. Anyone else? What are your favourite products?

I’m starting tomorrow, I’ve put on 10lb since lockdown, I’ve done a lot of boredom eating. I used it after both pregnancies and successfully kept the weight off until earlier this year. I like it because I don’t have to calorie count, worry about carbs or all that rubbish.

I only use that chocolate and strawberry shakes.
Typical day
Shake for breakfast
Fruit
Shake for lunch
Fruit
Dinner... easy!

Wishing you the best of luck, you’ve made a good start already.

Be prepared for a lecture soon on using Slimfast. It’s not sustainable apparently, I find it is.

@Llamazoom - good luck - your plan sounds good! My favourite shake is the caffe latte but like most of the others except banana.

Tbh I know people hate it but as the slogan goes - 'it works for me!'

I tried it post birth - lost a stone in a month so it can work, but only if after you come off it you make healthy choices.

I found the shakes super filling if you served with ice (for some reason) but towards the end found I was forcing myself to eat the snacks when I'm not a natural snacked, so just dropped them completely and had a 750 calorie dinner instead of a 600.

Meant to say - the cafe latte shakes are my favourite! Also the sour cream pretzels 😍

@willowandsage - glad it worked for you. The sour cream pretzels are really nice and I'm partial to a nutty nougart choc bar now and again!

@UndertheCedartree I’m out of touch with all the Slimfast products, I used to love the Hot Chocolate but they discontinued it years ago unfortunately. I didn’t know they did a cafe latte!! It’s on my shopping list.

@Llamazoom - hope you like it!
