I tend to eat as low carb as I can throughout most days, but I do not follow any specific diet. I eat vegetables daily, and even fruits when I feel like it (once or twice a week, usually). I do not track my carbs or calories, but I am losing weight.
My question is, I find that since I live a pretty busy lifestyle (and insane work hours), I tend to drink a Slim Fast Low Carb shake every morning. Sometimes (maybe once a week - not often), I'll drink one for dinner as well with some veggies, or another lower calorie low carb shake (Pure Protein, EAS, Atkins) for a snack.
I think these shakes are a good way to supplement vitamins and minerals, but I do drink a lot of them. I'm wondering if the artificial ingredients could do more harm than the vitamins and minerals I gain with them.
If anyone wants to see an example of what I eat in a day, I'm glad to share.
