I’m back today with a sponsored post with my friends at Slim-Fast. My friends and I are currently in the throws of a “10 by Christmas” challenge, meaning losing 10 pounds by Christmas. With Christmas only 2 weeks away, I’m super focused on meeting the challenge goal. (Psst: Did you know one out of four people’s weight loss goals have to do with an upcoming event or holiday? Go figure…)
That’s where Slim-Fast comes in. Slim-Fast has been around a long time and it was a little painful I must admit to get used to the taste of their shakes. That was then. Now, they have changed the formula and these things taste amazing. I’m stoked about the improved taste and they’re not forcing me to say that. Milk Chocolate is my favorite flavor – it’s rich and creamy. And, they’re more compact and plastic which means I can throw them in my purse or work bag.
I’ve also noticed the nutritional content. I am typically wary of shakes because of the carbs/sugar that’s added but these are super low on carbs, but high on fiber (5g!) and protein (10g!) that’ll give you a full four hours of hunger control. I’m also terrible at keeping up on my vitamins but Slim-Fast does it for me with 24 vitamins and minerals included in the bottle.
Other flavors are: French Vanilla (it’s good!), Rich Chocolate Royale, Cappuccino Delight and Strawberries N’ Cream.
You also may have noticed the “Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan” messaging on the bottles. Let me tell you a little about the new plan. These shakes are a part of the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan – a plan designed to give you quick results if done right, yet still remain flexible with your schedule.
Here’s how it works:
3: This stands for three snacks. Three nourishing snacks a day (like the Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars), fruits, nuts or veggies.
2: This stands for two Slim-Fast shakes or Meal Bars per day. These things provide the balanced nutrition of a meal without all the calories and provide four hours of hunger control
1: This stands for one balanced, 500-calorie meal per day. As a rule, they say to fill your plate with half veggies, a quarter with protein and a quarter with whole grains
Now, as far as where to find these new Slim-Fast shakes, they are available in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger. There’s also the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 store on Facebook
Before I go, make sure to hope on over to Slim-Fast on Facebook and “like” Slim-Fast. They have a great $10,000 contest going on right now.
