Yes, I tried it in college and then after having kids. I was just so hungry doing it. I would rather have fruits and veggies but yes, I do think it has merit. You could always do it for breakfast, have a Subway 6 inch for lunch and then a "sensible" dinner. If you can stick to it, go for it. I am a firm believer in everyone finding what works for them.

Well the 200 calories isn't enough for a meal (at least for me!) so I supplement with a piece of fruit, a few crackers with cheese and lunchmeat, or some veggies with ranch or hummus dip. Definitely doable!

I have been drinking Slim Fast for years. At first it was tough to drink everyday, but now I'm addicted! It doesn't feel right for me to eat/drink anything else for breakfast. I crave it. I drink it for lunch out of convenience (I teach first grade and can't get out of my room), but with crackers with it.

All I can say is that Slim Fast is not 100% perfect. Even drinking it for years hasn't helped me to lose the weight. Also, I don't drink it for lunch on the weekends, and I overeat constantly. You have to drink it twice a day, everyday, plus eat a sensible meal for dinner for it to work. That is the hard part!

I do WW but have Slimfast for lunch most week days cause that's when I run my errands and it's really convenient to have on the run. I've found the optima surprisingly filling and I'm losing consistently when I work the program.

I did Slim Fast years ago. It did work for me, but I felt hungry a lot.

I tried Slimfast for a while. I found it was absolutely wrong for me, and I can't imagine it working for someone who is susceptible for bingeing...only eat liquids all day and then eat solid food for dinner is an invitation for me to eat everything in the house. Although I suppose if you do what others were saying, and pair it with some crackers or something, that may help.

Honestly if you see the value as a "no choices to make" "portion controlled" thing then there are lots of things that will fill you up and be more real and healthy. For instance if it is breakfast that concerns you, I like 1 or 2 string cheese sticks and an apple. It is quick, prepacked so to speak, and you can eat on the run. Gives you protein and carbs and is real food.
