When I started drinking slim fast shakes, I didn't do it to lose weight. I started drinking them simply because I was a new mother and I was having a hard time finding a moment for myself, so regular meal times weren't an option. When my daughter and I would wake up and have to go out to run errands, I would grab a slim fast shake and drink it in the car. I picked slim fast because it has so many good things in it. I stopped drinking them after a while when I had more time to eat three meals a day, but sometimes I still buy them just because I love the taste so much. The price is not cheap, but that's kind of expected with diet products. You do get a decent amount per can though and I found it to be the perfect size for me even though I was a little sad when the can was empty! These shakes are very good and creamy and they don't taste like a diet product at all. I will say that I don't believe they would work really good for losing weight. No shake will ever be as good as food and I really didn't feel that full after drinking them. I felt hungry after about 30 minutes at the most after drinking them. They are a good meal replacement for very busy people though!

I really enjoy drinking Slim-Fast Low Carb Ready to Drink Shakes. My favorite flavor is chocolate royal. This french vanilla flavor is really awful. It tastes like chemicals and tastes fake. I only drank two out of the case and ended up throwing the rest away and buying more of this in the creamy chocolate flavor. This is great to drink on the go if you need to fill up quickly. If I stick with the Slim-Fast plan, I can loose weight fairly quickly. I really like that Slim-Fast shakes have vitamins in them to help you keep healthy while loosing weight. I also like that you can buy Slim-Fast Low Carb Ready to Drink Shakes fairly easily. I can buy it at Publix or Cvs. I do wish it was a little cheaper. The Sunday newspaper usually has coupons for Slim-Fast and Cvs usually has great sales on it. I've been drinking Slim-Fast Low Carb Ready to Drink Shakes for years for weight-loss and also as a quick snack. I will continue to use Slim-Fast products and would recommend them to family and friends, just not in this flavor..

Weird aftertaste

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

Slim Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake was effective in terms of initial weight loss. I dropped one to two pounds for week for about 10 weeks. The problem is that once I went back to eating a regular diet, I put about half of the weight back on within six months. The shakes tasted "ok", but did leave a noticeable aftertaste. I have mixed feelings about this Slim Fast product. I did see the initial results, but I do question how effective this product is for keeping the weight off. I also found that the vanilla flavor left a funny aftertaste and also left a film on my teeth. Overall, I am not super impressed with this Slim Fast product. I would consider trying a different flavor of this product to see if it did not leave an aftertaste. I would also consider using this product over a longer period of time to see if I could keep the weight off. Overall, I do not recommend this specific product but would consider using other Slim Fast products.

It is so creamy...

By

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan has variety of shakes to offer. Though I do not follow this 3-2-1 plan, I have kind of liked the shakes they have. As mentioned earlier in my reviews, I no longer take these shakes for the sole purpose of losing weight but, I prefer them to keep my hands off any junk food, and help me to feel full for longer duration. French Vanilla, my favorite flavor when it comes to Ice cream or French Vanilla coffee, so I had to try this flavor. Though I was quite skeptical of it being extra sweet and having an aftertaste but, I was so wrong. It is so creamy and smooth, feels just like having some normal milk shake. I mostly had it cold, except for when I had it on the run. Slim fast shakes are an easy and healthy alternative to the in between meal snacks, where most of use end up having something unhealthy, like crackers or chips. These shakes serves double purpose, they keep you healthy and help you lose weight if combined with moderate exercise and diet check.

Yummy Classic Vanilla Taste

By 

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

I love my Slim Fast shakes and the French Vanilla favorite always has a place in my fridge.

The shakes are easy to just grab and go or I can add some things to them to make them even better. I usually mix them in the blender with a cup of ice and make a frappuccino type drink from them. To the French Vanilla I've also added a handful of fruit (strawberries/peaches/blueberries), a banana, or even a tablespoon of instant coffee powder. It makes a great neutral drink on its own and is even better with things added in.

I love that I can find these absolutely everywhere. I can pick them up while doing my usual shopping and not have to make a special stop. They're also quite inexpensive and I always try to stock up when they are on sale and I use my coupons.

These are shelf stable so they can be kept in your desk drawer at work for a quick lunch when poured over ice. I like that I can stock up and keep them in my pantry and not have to have my fridge packed with shakes.

I have a shake every morning and French Vanilla is always a flavor that I return to again and again because it is just so versatile.

Helped Me Maintain a Healthy Weight

By 

from wilkes barre, PA

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

I have tried many slim fast and other weight loss products in the past. One of the first products I tried was the Slim-Fast Ready to Drink Shake; I was happy to find that it came in a vanilla flavor, because that is one of my favorite flavors. I drank this shake as a meal replacement; I usually had it for breakfast or when I had a lunch break at work. I did not care for the taste; the vanilla flavor I tasted was not the vanilla flavor I was expecting. Although the taste was not the best, I was able to get past it and after drinking it a few times I got used to the flavor. I liked that the shake was a little creamy but not too heavy. It did not upset my stomach like other shakes tend to do. The shakes were successful in keeping me full until my next meal. At the time I was drinking them, my goal was to maintain my current weight, and they did help me maintain a healthy weight. However, I stopped using these drink shakes when I noticed the price of the cans to go up quite a bit. I think these are effective meal replacement shakes, but I also think there are other less expensive shakes out there that are less expensive.

Not the greatest taste

By 

from Greer, SC

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

I tried the Slim Fast 3-2-1 shakes when I was looking for healthier, fast, and convenient meals. I was not using them for weight-loss, but I thought they were pretty good for a convenient meal on the go. The texture is pretty smooth, but the taste is not the greatest. The initial taste is fine, but it has a kinda strange -- almost chalky after taste. I would suggest the chocolate flavors over this one.

If you are looking to lose weight I would suggest a whole food way of eating, make sure to get enough rest, and then exercise. If you are just needing more healthy, quick, convenient meals, these could be a good fit for you. I prefer to drink them when they are cold, but the fact that they don't need to be refrigerated makes them that much more convenient. I even had a friend who would keep a case of them in her car for when she needed a fast meal. They are okay at room temperature, but I think they taste much better cold.

Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan French Vanilla Shake

By 

from Hermiston, OR

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

I found another really good flavor from Slim-Fast. The French Vanilla Shake drink has a light vanilla taste but with a creamy, silky texture that when all three things are combined on the tongue as you drink it, it doesn't feel like or taste like a diet plan drink. When I want a pudding, I use this French vanilla drink added to a package of instant sugar free pudding mix. Whip it up and you have a dessert that you can eat as a meal. This flavor also works very well when put in a blender, add a piece of fruit and a container of yogurt to make a breakfast smoothie. This is a very versatile shake. I have tried these alternatives with other replacement drinks and the outcome hasn't been so yummy. Even by itself, this drink is one of the few that will satisfy me from one meal to the next. The only drawback I have with this shake is the cost. It is a little expensive for the average person on a low to limited income.

This is not good!

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

I am a big fan of vanilla flavored things. I actually prefer vanilla over chocolate. When I first tried this I thought they would taste okay, but they were gross! I thought that these drinks would help with weight loss, but I found myself chugging them down while I plugged my nose. It wasn't worth it. The texture and taste were terrible! I will say that the chocolate shakes were better, but they weren't great either. It wasn't worth it for me. They can get costly also. I have also know people who have done this diet and as soon as they went off of it they gained weight back quickly. I only did this for a short time. I wanted something that I could stick with for life and not just a fad diet. I would recommend good old eating healthy and exercising. These drink diets don't work. I could see using them as a quick breakfast on the go or while travelling, but not as a long term thing. I am actually surprised that these are still around with how bad they taste.

Slim Fast

By 

from Westminster, SC

Comments about Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, Ready To Drink Shake, French Vanilla:

Slim Fast really isn't any better than other brands of weight loss shakes. In my opinion the Equate brand sold by Wal-Mart has a much better taste and is a whole lot more enjoyable! I also think that these drinks are simply just not great for helping weight loss though. They have artificial sweeteners in them which has been proven to increase appetite rather than reduce it and in my opinion isn't the smartest thing to put in them. Also artificial sweeteners can cause side effects that aren't so desirable like migraines. Slim Fast is just a quick way for the company to make money. Weight loss is best achieved by cutting calories and reducing fat intake while getting motivated and exercising! Spend the money on healthy foods like fruits and veggies and don't load your body with these needless calories only to stay hungry! I've tried them and learned the hard way they aren't worth it!
