    Thinking of starting this diet on Saturday, so just wondering what experiences you have had with it? Have heard very mixed reviews about this diet x

    My sisters doing it atm - She's lost 9lbs since xmas, she has about 1st to loose overall so she's nearly done it. She has a WW ready meal with salad for tea rather than lf cooked meal. Seems to be working for her so far!

    Okay my honest opinion - it's a load of crap!

    Of course depriving yourself of calories works, and the simplicity of it (2 shakes + reasonable dinner) appeals to a lot of people.

    Now, if you really want to follow something that is 'simple' in terms of just having 2 shakes, I highly suggest making your own alternative drink. Slimfast is just packed with junk, the same amount of processed sugar as a chocolate bar.

    Here's one of my favourite drinks I make:
    1 cup mangos, 1 cup skim milk, 1 scoop protein powder, 1 tbsp flax oil, 1 tbsp ground flax, cinnamon
    (Your carbs- mango, skim milk, with 25-30g protein in the powder, plus 10-14g healthy fats in the flax oil) ~ it's a lot healthier and tastes even better.

    There are SO many combinations you can do. Good luck

    Just don't bother jennifer.


    Done it... yes I lost weight but i exercised hard 1hr a day, you need to, to burm off all the processed sugars. Much better products out there.

    I did it years ago. Lost 45 pounds. Gained it all back and more after I stopped drinking the shakes. Not worth it IMO!! Lose weight the healthy way and you won't regret it. :D
