The Slim-Fast Weight Loss Plan
You can’t miss seeing the Slim-Fast weight loss products that line grocery shelves. There are Slim-fast shakes, snack bars, and meal bars in red or yellow packaging that is very eye-catching.
Many people have found Slim-fast to be very effective when it comes to losing weight. Slim-fast is a nutritionally balanced diet plan that includes carbohydrates, and the proper amount of fat.
One aspect of the program that is especially appealing to those who are trying to lose weight is that the Slim-Fast program is convenient in today’s fast paced society. It is convenient to just grab a shake and drink on the go.
Another plus is that the Slim-fast program is less expensive than other diet plans, especially those that are pre-packaged such as Jenny Craig and NutriSystem.
The Slim-fast plan fights boredom by offering variety including different flavored shakes, soups, pasta, and nutrition bars. In fact, there are more than a hundred different products.
The Slim-fast plan calls for you to eat three meals and three snacks each day. The snacks are to be made up of fruits and vegetables. The individuals following the plan are to use Slim-Fast products for one of the snacks and two of the meals. Because of the three meals and three snacks you should not be hungry on the plan.
The Slim-Fast Website is a weight loss tool for those on the diet. The Website is very user-friendly. Registered dieticians are available on the Website to answer your dieting questions. It is also possible to join a support group on the Website. It is free to join the community. You can join a group and find weight loss Buddies who can share in your goals; weight loss challenges and supports you along your weight-loss journey. On the site there are several tools to help you reach your weight loss goals including a BMI calculator, weight-loss calculator, a weight chart, and downloads that include a weight loss book with tips for eating, exercising and tracking your weight loss achievements and also a journal, goals, and success story agreement so you can share your successes.
One disadvantage like other programs where specialized food is involved is that it is possible that you won’t find enough of the shakes or food to your liking making it difficult to follow the plan. Most find the program difficult to follow for the long-term, so it is great for those short-term weight loss goals but not so good when you desire to lose the weight and keep it off.
Experts in the nutrition field can’t seem to agree on whether or not the Slim-fast plan is nutritionally inadequate and potentially harmful or if it is nutritionally sound. The fact that the company has been around for decades now says that the company has dieters as fans.
