I have battled weight loss all my life. I am not alone, there are millions like me, hence the weight loss product industry with promises of amazing results. Believe me, there is not one product out there that will give you results without you also making changes. This I learned after many, many purchases of diet products. When all was said and done, I did finally realize that Slim Fast could at least help me replace bad snacks with healthier ones. When I want a snack or need something to make a quick and easy meal that will satisfy I reach for Slim-Fast powder to mix up a quick and tasty shake. I keep various flavors on hand to give me a variety so I don't get bored with it, and when the season makes them available I also keep various fruits to add. Here's another tip: when I don't have natural fruit to flavor my shakes, I use one of the many water flavoring packets that are on the supermarket shelves these days. I also use soy or almond milk to mix it up. The shakes are a great way to achieve a low calorie, yet vitamin packed meal replacement. I recommend it for anyone who want to take a step towards changing bad eating habits and work toward a healthier body weight.
