Slim Fast Summer Strawberry 12 Serving Powder

I am still trying to follow the Slim Fast plan although having said that I have gone a bit astray this week having had so many Bank Holidays and more than a week away from work. However I am still having my Slim Fast shakes and doing some running and plan to stop the excess snacking when I return to work this coming week.

The Slim Fast plan is really simple and very easy to follow. All you need is a tub of this meal replacement shake mixture and your pretty much away. There isn't too much to think about work out or plan when following this diet and it really is as simple as 3, 2, 1 (which is what the diet is called). The idea is you choose 3 snacks, 2 Slim Fast meals and 1 sensible meal. I have found it easy to do where I have a shake for breakfast and a shake for lunch then a dinner but I tend to try not to snack in between due to the fact that once I start I just can't stop.

The Strawberry Slim Fast has got to be one of my favourite flavours because it really does taste so milkshake like. The tub of the powder mix set me back £5 from Tesco but you would be looking at paying nearly £1 more if you were to buy it from Boots. Buying a tub of 12 servings really does represent great value for money as the ready to drink bottles are at least £1.50p for each one where as each drink from this tub would work out to only 46p per drink for the powder and a little extra for the skimmed milk you have to use.

To make up a drink of the Slim Fast from this powder takes no real brains or trouble. You do however need a good bottle to mix it up in. I already have a proper shake drinking bottle from my last meal replacement diet which is very handy as it has a measuring gauge on the side and a special lid which makes the powder disperse easier and a little spout to drink from. This only cost me a couple of pounds and I have certainly got my monies worth out of it. Anyway to make up a serving of this shake all you need to do is get some (250ml) ice cold skimmed milk and add to it two heaped scoops of the powder from the tub. There is a little clear plastic scoop included with each tub of the Slim Fast and when getting out the powder I always make sure that I level each scoop with the back of a clean knife.

It doesn't take too much shaking to make sure all the powder is mixed well into the milk and on drinking the shake they have never tasted powdery or grainy which is far better than the previous shake diet I tried. The taste of the strawberry shakes is really rather nice and it does have a good deal of real tasting strawberry flavour to it. Unlike the banana Slim Fast which tastes more of fake bananas, this drinks tastes like a fresh milkshake and I really enjoy it. So much so that instead of alternating my shake mixture with the tubs I have I have mainly used the Strawberry flavour one and I am now running out of this a lot quicker than I am the others. That said I still do really like the other flavours I have.

At 230 calories per drink and only 0.4 grams of saturated fat having a drink of this Slim Fast Strawberry Shake certainly will work out far better than having a regular breakfast or lunch and because of this the weight should start to shift. I have managed to shift well over a stone now and I plan to keep going until another stone is gone and I am getting closer to my size 8 goal. I find with all the vitamins and minerals that are contained within each shake you make I that I am probably having a more vitamin and mineral filled diet than I was before I was doing this diet. I don't feel I am missing out on anything and I make sure that my evening meal is packet full of lean meat or fish with a ton of fresh vegetables.

I find that knowing I only have to have a drink for breakfast or lunch is far easier to get my head around than trying to figure out how many calories I would be eating if I were to have some sushi or a salad plus I still feel hungry after beginning to eat those types of food. With a shake a feel I have trained my brain now so that it knows a shake it all it is getting and mentally I do not feel the need to eat a ton of food. Plus these shakes really do fill you up and keep you full up for a good while after drinking them. They do say that liquid takes a longer time to be digested by the stomach and that’s probably why I feel like I can go from breakfast to lunch with having only had a shake.

The fact that I find the diet itself so easy to follow and not only do I enjoy drinking the shakes but that I am seeing good results as well then I feel this diet is perfectly suited to me. Of course it is not a long term healthy eating plan but I like it and will probably stick to it for a good few weeks to come.

Definitely worth giving a try if you have some weight to loose! 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommended

I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you

Many thanks for taking the time to read.

After reading your last review, I suggested my son try it as he wanted to lose a few pounds, so I bought it for hime and mixed it up for him to take to work for his lunch, he ended up drinking that and buying a pasty and crisps!! Obviously you need a bit more willpower than he has lol. Nic x
