How Did It Go?

Well, firstly, if you buy yourself a great shaker like SmartShake you will find that the shakes are quick and easy to make. Just measure yourself two level scoops of powder (measure included in the tub) and add to 250ml of skimmed milk and mix. You can easily mix this in a SmartShake or use a whisk.


You can also buy ready to drink Slimfast shakes.


It was quick and easy to make my breakfast shake in the morning.


For lunch, I measured the powder into the storage compartment of the SmartShake, put the milk in the shaker the night before and mixed it up at work.

I actually loved taking the shake to work for lunch; it saved me so much time as I didn’t have to prepare a salad or sandwiches to take with me. I often eat at my desk, it was really easy just to grab the Shaker out of the fridge and drink it. It’s an easy meal to have when you cannot get out of the office!


The Strawberry Slimfast tastes great. It just tastes like a regular strawberry milkshake and I really like it. It’s thick and creamy and has a lovely flavour.

I’m sure the chocolate one tastes just as good but, personally, I can’t face chocolate at breakfast.


This varied. Some days, I felt full and I didn’t want to eat anything else. My downfall is savoury snacks so the sweet taste of the Slimfast stopped me craving salty snacks. However, as the days went on, I found myself getting rather hungry between meals.

For this reason Slimfast also provide 100 calorie snacks you can eat. You can buy cookies, crisps and bars.

Did It Work?

It is, perhaps, rather expensive but, YES, I lost weight.

When you reach your target weight, you can maintain it by replacing one meal a day with a Slimfast shake.

This is a great way to lose weight for me as I am always short of time and cannot be bothered to weigh food and count calories.

If you want to try a diet that is quick and convenient, why not give it a go and see what you think?
