Delicious, filling, great flavour, and not too sweet I used these products some years ago but found them very sweet, however I decided to start again. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the flavours are great, but the sugar content has been significantly reduced to a mere 7.6g/100g compared with other protein shakes/meal replacement powders which can be around the 30g/100gm mark. This means that you get the flavour, some sweetness, but it's not teaching you to crave the high sugary aspect of a "sweet" flavoured drink. I like to mix and match my flavours, as you can get more variety, and become less bored with them, so giving you greater chance of sticking to the plan. As we're all human, I've fallen off the wagon several times, but it's so easy to get back on. Be aware that the calorie count may be higher than your standard breakfast, but it has the protein so can help to keep you satisfied for longer. I take a bag of powder in my shaker out with me if I'm likely to be out during a mealtime so I have the choice, and it's just a question of buying a small pint of milk. Cheaper than most sandwiches, and way fewer calories too. Although I bought a branded shaker in Boots to get me going straight away, do consider the ones you can buy in the discount (£1) type shops. I've found that these do fill me up, and as a result, the ability to eat as large a plate of food has been reduced. Bonus! Also consider checking out the cost online, as at the time of writing this review, they have 1/3rd off if you order online. Unfortunately due to demand, most flavours are out of stock. It would be good if they could allow you to buy the out of stock products in store at the reduced price if you're already buyting them online so you're not put at a disadvantage. It would be good if they could create some savoury flavours, as part of the issue with trying to lose weight and retrain yourself is the sweet craving. These shakes are so easy to make up, hence I prefer to use them rather than the meals, and of course, they're better value for money. April 6, 2016
Tastes lovely Slim-Fast is effective but it does require some strong will power. When I first started using Slim-Fast I was very hungry and so I drank a lot of water which helped. However, after a couple of days I wasn’t as hungry. If you stick with it and keep snacking to a minimum then it will work. Personally, I don’t tell anyone that I am on the diet I let the results speak for themselves…. which is always positive! Slim-Fast is useful for people, like me, who have issues with portion control as you just put two scoops of the powder and 250ml skimmed milk in a cup! The Vanilla flavour is my favourite and I would recommend this product!! September 18, 2016
