Default Is Anyone Doing Slim Fast?

Hello all!

I have been trying to do the low carb Atkins diet for a little over a week now, and it is just not working for me.

I am going to go back on Slim Fast because I find it really easy. I drink a shake for breakfast and lunch (with fruit added) snack bar for a late snack in the afternoon. Then for dinner chicken for fish with a big plate of veggies! Very easy to follow.

Are any of you doing Slim Fast? Is it working for you? I feel all alone here. I donít see any threads on this diet and would like to find a few buddies to share info with.

Thanks, feffyy

There is a meal replacement thread/Slim Fast thread here on the forum a page or two back-you can fine it by going down to the bottom of the thread listings and going back 30 or 60 days or so to find it-as of now it is on page two...

Some years ago I consumed Metrical (a heavily advertised product during the 1960s, I don't know if it still exists), a Slim-Fast like product. I liked the taste of it, and I did it for a while, I don't recall why I drifted away from it. At any rate, I can prepare cheap, fast meals like a bread with cheese slice sandwich, or a quantity of nuts, so I figure why bother with some special diet product? At any rate, I feel that it is good to have fibre moving thru your system, which I don't think you get with Slim Fast.

I am actually going to WW, but I use the shakes for a quick breakfast, I like the chocolate malt in a blender with some ice cubes and skim milk. It tastes exactly like a real malt! I also am addicted to their snack bars, especially the peanut butter crunch (tastes like a butterfinger) and the peanut nougat (that's my current fave).

What are your fave meal replacement bars? I haven't tried any of them yet...

I like Myoplex Lite bars, 190 caloires, 15 gm protein, 1 gm fiber; but my wife's favorite are Luna Bars, 180 calories, 10 gm protein, 2 gm fiber.
