How Did SlimFast Start?
I am not sure reema Verified User. I got down to milk and slimfast. I lost 3 pounds in a week.. Leslie Bonci's Meals for Athletes. It promises the shedding of pounds with one sensible meal for the day complemented by meal replacements and tasty SlimFast snacks. Only recently did I hear that these problems can be caused by diet. There are no scientific or clinical studies specifically aimed at exploring the effectiveness of adopting a SlimFast only diet plan.
What Is SlimFast?
But after hitting snooze a couple more times than I should, I scramble to get the essentials together. Although piecing my morning together is hectic, I always make sure to grab breakfast.
This advice is probably engraved into your skull, but eating a healthy breakfast is absolutely essential to having a productive day. It helps maintain blood sugar levels, revs up your metabolism, and produces adequate energy for athletic performance.
You don't even need to prep your shake the night before like I do. Really, all it takes is grabbing some frozen fruit, vegetables, protein source generally protein powder , and a liquid and boom! A shake allows you to add 1 or 2 servings of vegetables without altering the taste. Generally, I have athletes keep frozen kale and spinach on hand at all times and put it into their breakfast smoothies.
Then add their favorite fruits and nut butters to mask the taste. If you know you need to get your vegetables, but the thought of suffering through a salad every day makes you cringe, try starting with a hidden serving in your smoothie every morning. Since most of us don't have time to cook a healthy breakfast, the choices are slim to none. This is where a smoothie comes into play.
Total Time 5 minutes. Instructions Combine all ingredients except for the toppings in a blender. Puree until completely smooth - the mixture should be very thick. Add a touch more liquid if necessary to get it to blend completely smooth, or if you want a thinner smoothie.
Transfer to a individual serving bowl and add toppings. Recipe Notes Nutritional information does not include toppings. Subscribe for More Recipes! OMG this looks so good, Rachel! I want a bowlful right now! The smoothie bowl train is the BEST train! The thicker the better, in my book! Smoothie bowls are a trend I am seriously happy about- all those toppings are just heavenly: Any idea about how many calories in this?
Hi Devan, you definitely could. I love adding a scoop of Vital Proteins collagen to mine. Hi Mags, yes I used the kind from the carton, not the can! But last week they had it, but was only going to let me buy 2, when I was wanting 10 cans. I like the powder so I can mix it myself. Thank you for listening. Read all comments which find helpful thankyou and good luck to all xx. I will quit it inmmediately. Had to stop it. Never gonna take it again, If anyone is thinking about having it, think and search before doing it.
I have been a long time user of slim-fast shakes. Today I am quitting. The reason is inconvenience of the new plastic bottles. I use to have my shake on the run. Pop the top and drink it on the drive to work. Now I have to remove the cap, remove the aluminum foil and figure out a place to put them while I drink my shake.
Looks like the price went up when you shifted to plastic as well. I went to the pharmacy to pick up meds and slimfast and was shocked at what I saw. Now your company is cheating us out of your product. I use to get a 12 pack now its an 8 pack. It use to be 11 ounces, now its 10 ounce. The 6 packs are now 4 packs for the same price. What the heck is going on? I feel your company is starting to screw the consumer.
Does your company think that us consumers are stupid, do you think just because you put your product into a plastic bottles that we well be happy?
I think you need to talk to your marketing dept or your CEO and tell them that the public is not happy. The sales person said she had several complaints since your product hit the shelves. Its bad enough our gas and cost of living is going up, and now the one thing I felt I could afford to help me with my weight problem has gone up.
I think you need to do some changes before people start to boycott your product…A concerned consumer. I agree with your comment. I will go to another brand. It is the price. Regular price is 4. I was wondering if Aldi had something like it.
I just started the Slimfast diet and really like it, but was wondering if there was a cheaper version. Thank you for letting us know. Slimfast worked for me.
Hey , you said you lost 3 lbs the first week. I was wondering how much exercising your doing with the diet to get those results, and what exercises are you doing? Yes, I would throw them away. All Slim Fast shakes in a can from have been recalled. The powder and slim fast bars are ok. My brother said That I should throw this away as it had been recalled.
I read your article on the ingredients in slimfast. For five years I have been using slimfast once a day in the morning. I usually mix a quart bottle in the night and it last about two days. During this five year period I had colitis of the stomach. Only recently did I hear that these problems can be caused by diet. I decided to eliminate foods form my diet to see what could be causing the colitis.
I got down to milk and slimfast. When I stopped drinking milk with slimfast my symptoms finally went away. I thought at first it was the lactose, so I went for several days without any milk or slimfast, the symptoms are gone.
They I started to see if I could drink milk with no lactose. I believe the slimfast has been causing me colitis all these years. I am still off the medicine and slimfast and wont use the product any more.
I would like to tell other people who may have colitis about this problem. Can you suggest places I can contact? Thanks very much Lawrence Smith.
Lawrence, colitis of the stomach?? Colitis refers to the colon and has no referal to the stomach. With this is mind, I question your ability to mix the proper concentration.
