I just wanted to make a couple of points clear for those who might be reading this thread.
~Slim Fast has more than 2 grams of protein per serving. A ready to drink can has 10 grams per serving. When you get the powder form of Slim Fast, you must be sure that when you calculate the protein grams, that you are also including the protein grams that are in the milk you mix it with as well-which would equate to about 10 grams per serving as well.
Also, Slim Fast has changed their plan in the past few years-it is no longer just a shake or bar for 2 meals, and a meal for the third. There are snacks included in the plan, and a small amount of regular food that you eat along with the shake.
Also, when you go on any plan that includes a lot of shakes and bars or special food-like Slim Fast, Medifast, Nutrisystem, or the plan discussed in this thread-it is important that you start thinking about maintenance and the rest of your life while you are on it. You have to have some sort of a plan for maintenance, unless you want to eat the prepackaged food/shakes and bars forever.
One of the big keys to lifelong weight control, is learning not to "diet" but to make lifestyle changes that last forever. It's a good thing to think about now-rather than waiting until you are at goal. It can help you avoid the yo-yo cycle.
