Diet Program Review: Slim Fast

Slim Fast is the most common diet shake available on the market today. The plan allows for a shake at breakfast, lunch, and then a normal dinner. It also allows two pieces of fruit and a Slim Fast bar as a snack. According to nutrition experts, the Slim Fast plan does have healthy aspects. It is an easy plan to follow and promotes healthy exercise and drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Slim Fast centers the weight loss program on products made by their own company. Traditional shakes and nutrition bars are what the diet mostly consists of, making it obvious that the one meal you eat for dinner must consist of nutritious and wholesome foods since your shakes only add vitamins and minerals. The goal for dieters on Slim Fast is to stay away from high-fat, calorie dense foods, and eat a diet that is high in fiber and vitamins instead.

The problem with the Slim Fast plan is that the caloric limit is set so low that it can be bad for any long-term goal of weight loss. Each shake only contains around 250 calories, add in the shakes and regular meal, and you are likely to be only consuming 1,300 calories a day. It seems reasonable that reducing calories is the key to weight loss, but when you reduce too many, you can experience side effects.

The only good thing that Slim Fast had ever done was that it introduced meal replacement shakes to the consumer. Slim Fast may have been good when it first came out, but with today`s diet choices, there are much better diet programs available. I simply do not recommend the Slim Fast dieting program if you are looking for long-term weight loss results. With that being said, I still feel that Slim Fast shakes and nutritional bars are a good complement to one`s diet. If Slim Fast would change their "2 shakes a day" plan to one shake a day, I would reconsider my opinion of them. But until they change it, I`m going to stay away from it.
