Hey Leon, I'm new here too and will start my diet sometime next week. I'm starting on a diet called New Lifestyle Diet, which is the same products as a diet called Wonderslim. It's a high protein meal replacement diet using shakes, bars, snacks, and one self prepared meal a day called the "lean and green" meal. There is a lot of positive reviews around the net with people losing large amounts of weight on this diet. I look at it as a much better version of slim-fast type of diet.
The difference in Wonderslim and New Lifestyle is simply the plan itself. Wonderslim plan is a 1500-1700 calorie a day plan, while New Lifestyle is a 1200 calorie a day plan. I am going to try the New Lifestyle plan first and see how I feel, if the calories are too low I will switch to Wonderslim plan. Both use the same products, just a different brand name with the same supplier. Wonderslim is some cheaper than New Lifestyle, I didn't know this at first, so my first order is coming from New Lifestyle. Shipping is also faster from Wonderslim for me because they are located in the South.
I do suppose the secret is to stay consistent......... as with any diet.... or anything in life for that matter.
This forum has quite a few people currently doing Wonderslim, so thats why I joined here. Mostly ladies, but losing weight and struggling isn't something gender specific.
Whatever you choose, keep us updated. Choose a plan that is right for you, something you feel you can do longterm. I do know if it is too restrictive, I'll end up dropping in in two weeks. Good luck and do lots of research!
