Default Slimfast...gonna use it again.

I've used Slimfast in the past. I
used to literally be overweight (BMI over 25) in highschool. Then, I lost the weight with exercise and maybe two slimfast bars a week.
I went down to 98lbs, but over years of yoyo-ing, I went up to 120lbs.
Now I'm at 110lbs, with the help of some good weight loss buddies.
I'm considering using Slimfast again, but I'm doubting its effectiveness.
It didn't exactly do wonders fo me in the past. I only have 5lbs to lose.

Have any of you used slimfast with success? The last 5lbs are really hard to lose...and I'm looking to lose them as quickly as possible.

The major problem I find with it is that I get very hungry after eating them.
I don't understand how people can say the bars/shakes fill them up.

No, Slimfast sucks. Like you said, they don't even fill you up, and they don't offer anything of value nutritionally ... is there a necessity to lose the last five pounds to see a number on the scale OR to look and feel slimmer and sexier? If the former, weelll, you'll just have to tough it out. If the latter, hit the weights, build up some muscle. You may not lose, you may even gain, but you WILL shrink and look more toned

Yeah, I agree. I don't know WHAT I was thinking. I guess I just needed to hear it from someone else

If anything, I do more weight training than cardio. I've developed very broad shoulders and thick thighs as a result. I don't think exercise will help me shrink, unfortunately.

Slimfast is loaded with sugar, so it will make you hungry quicker than a lower sugar meal. If you really want a meal replacement drink, I'd suggest Myoplex Lite in the ready to drink cans (you can get it at GNC or cheaper on the net). They are balanced protein and carbs and will stick to your ribs longer - if it's possible for a drink to do that!
