Anyone used Slimfast or equivalent for a week before a holiday?

Hello all, I'd like to lose around 7lbs before going on holiday in a few weeks. I already do 5-2 and am now stuck around 9stone mark for over a year. Would really like to get rid of a few extra lbs just before holiday and am thinking of buying a weeks worth of slim fast stuff from boots and giving it a go. Any thoughts? Anyone done this before and if so how much weight did you lose and were there any side effects?

Following as I'm thinking of doing the same too (bit no advice sorry!).

I have a friend who does this but she finds if she does the shakes the week before and then eats on holiday the "proper food" bloats her out and makes her feel very heavy. I think she's takes them on holiday too now.

I did it for a week and lost 3.5lb. I've never been in such a bad mood before

I lost 2 stone very rapidly on SlimFast over the course of 6 weeks.
I stuck to it religiously (you know you have to drink 2 litres of water and do 30 minutes of exercise per day, right?)

It's very hard and you will feel very hungry after the first day.

I'm not sure if its a good idea to do it for one week and then go on holiday.

Is doing slimfast any better than just going on a soup diet or similar before holiday? What are the benefits of doing a slimfast over say, just having salads and fish or chicken for a week?
