I was introduced to Slim-Fast years ago by a Nutritionist as a way to add better nutrition into my diet. Some of my medical problems count against me where my health is concerned. Most of my readers know that I don’t need to diet aka lose weight, but my body lacks certain vitamins and the best way to add those into my diet is by having something handy like Slim-Fast. That’s how I was introduced to Slim-Fast. Plus my doctor has recommended it to me for years, strongly when I was pregnant since I liked to eat a lot of junk and this was a great way to have something sweet but still healthy. Slim-Fast Shakes have 10 grams of protein, five grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals.
The new Slim-Fast Shakes are single serve, which is great and I love that they come in the bottle style instead of a can. I always hated not being able to put a top on. They’re creamier, richer and by far taste dreamier than their predecessors. They come in four different flavors:
- Creamy Milk Chocolate
- French Vanilla
- Rich Chocolate Royale
- Cappuccino Delight
- Strawberries n’ Cream
I, of course, had to have chocolate! So I had gotten a Creamy Milk Chocolate Slim-Fast Shake.
Here is where this is very good for me. 1 of these Slim-Fast Shakes contains 35% Vitamin D and 35% Vitamin B6 + B12; as someone with both severe Vitamin D And B problems this is wonderful. Plus, that’s only 2 of the 24 vitamins that Slim-Fast Shakes contain. It also have 5 Grams of Fiber and 10 Grams of Protein packed into its delicious chocolatey goodness. They make you feel pretty full for up to four hours as well, this helps those of you that are looking to cut back and diet better in the coming year and those of you like me that tend to snack a lot without actually eating anything good.
Slim-Fast also has a 3-2-1 Plan. 3 Snacks (Slim-Fast 100 Calorie Snack Bars, Fruits, Nuts, Veggies), 2 Shakes (or Meal Bars) and 1 Balanced (500 Calorie) Meal. They suggest filling half your plate with vegetables, 1/4 protein and 1/4 whole grains. You can find all of the Snacks, Meal Bars and Slim-Fast Shakes at Walmart, Safeway, Target, Kroger, Amazon and of course at the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store!
I know a lot of you are trying to find ways to lose weight during the coming year so I wanted to share a way to that. Who knew Chocolate Shakes could help you stay healthy?
You can follow Slim-Fast on their Facebook Page and you can also Vow to Wow! This enters you into a contest for some wonderful prizes, one of which is a make-over and a trip to NYC!
Have you tried the new Slim-Fast Shakes yet? I wish they would make a Banana Milk Shake, I would be all over that! Unfortunately, not many people agree with me.
