This post brought to you by Slim-Fast. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you have been following my blog, you know that I have sneaked in a few posts regarding weight. More specifically, the weight that I have gained (and lost) as a result of pregnancy. Factor into that my age: I JUST reached the ripe old (young) age of 40! I always joke that I feel more like two 20's! On a good day! Though I feel young, my metabolism isn't what it once was!
I have lost 54 pounds in the past 18 months. I still have the lingering 5 to go. The toughest in my book! I am sure that I am not alone there!
I have never tried any diet meal plans or programs. But will consider it in the coming year. I know that most believe in starting N-O-W. Now? No way, it's the holiday's and there are so many delicacies to enjoy! I'm a realist. I am proud of my losses and will work on the remaining 5 little pounds in the coming year.
I'd LOVE to hear about your experiences.
I'm curious as to how many of you have tried or are considering Slim-Fast? From what I hear they offer quite a few tasty shake options. Slim-Fast shakes can provide up to four hours of hunger control. There are 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals. Sounds like a great aid in making it easier for you to stick to your plan and achieve your weight loss goals.
Flavors available in the new Slim-Fast bottle include:
• Creamy Milk Chocolate
• French Vanilla
• Rich Chocolate Royale
• Cappuccino Delight
• Strawberries N’ Cream
About the Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan:
• 3 Snacks: Three nourishing snacks a day such as Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars, fruit, nuts or veggies
• 2 Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day
• 1 Balanced Meal: Enjoy one balanced 500-calorie meal per day.
Tip: Try to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and a quarter with whole grains.
Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars provide a calorie-controlled snack to help curb sweet cravings between meals.
I am more a fan of snack bars vs. shakes so I LOVE that I can substitute a meal bar instead! I really want to try the Chewy Chocolate Crisp.
You can find the new Slim-Fast shakes in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway, and Kroger. Also available online at Amazon.com and the at the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook.
