Soooo I am starting Slim Fast...

I am starting slim fast.... any advice??

Re: Soooo I am starting Slim Fast...

  • Why not just eat a healthy diet and exercise? Those things are loaded with sugars and other crap that can't be good for your body. What's your plan when you're finished? Making changes to your lifestyle will set you up for the best success in the long run, not some fad diet. 
  • Hi ciaramarie1989,

    Well i will not advice to use slim fast, as i have seen 2-3 cases which ended up quitting slim fast as they either started feeling more hungry or they faced some issues like stomach pain etc. So i would suggest you to keep your diet under control and do exercise. Big Smile

    This exactly...I'm not a fan of meal replacement shakes in general and recall trying slimfast many years ago (well before jumping on the exercise train)...the only thing it really did was cause me to spend longer than I cared to in the bathroom.  And left me hungry.
