What You Should Know
Slim-Fast is a well established company that has been around for many years. It produces a wide variety of products that range anywhere from shakes to candy bars. Claims have been made that these products can help you to lose weight by reducing your calorie intake, but providing you with the proper nutrition and vitamins that your body needs. It is said that Slim Fast is easy to follow and it won’t make you hungry. We will now take a closer look so it may be determined if these claims hold any relevance.
The ingredients that are found in most Slim Fast products are Fat free milk, water, sugar, cocoa (processed with alkali), gum Arabic, calcium caseinate, cellulose gel, canola oil, potassium phosphate, cellulose gum, soybean lecithin, mono and dyglicerides, artificial flavor, carrageenan, maltodextrin and dextrose.
Slim Fast does not appear to contain any special ingredients that really stick out as a “weight loss supplement”. Basically, it is believed that the main purpose of the product is to make sure that your body is receiving the proper amount of nutrition by really making an attempt to include all of the daily dietary needs by combining the product with what Slim Fast likes to call “sensible meals”. According to a source, you may be able to achieve these results by either using their products as a meal replacement, or by combining them with other foods that you may already have in your pantry or refrigerator. They recommend that you eat 2 meals a day that includes one of their products for each one, and one sensible meal at night with snacking in between. Of course, the snacks would also be Slim Fast products. It appears that Slim Fast’s main goal may be to encourage you to eat less of regular everyday foods and replace them with Slim fast products. This will result in less food and less calories, but it may be delivering the proper amount of nutrition to your body while doing so.
- One advantage of this is that it appears that you still get to eat regular foods with the available meal plan system.
- Slim Fast products can be found nearly anywhere from shopping centers to drug stores.
- Slim Fast provides online support and helps to plan your menus
- Most nutritionist may believe that this is not a long term solution to weight loss.
- Nutritionist may also believe that the caloric intake is not enough.
- It seems to contain too much sugar, probably resulting in an energy boost then a crash.
- This does not appear to contain an effective metabolism booster.
Slim Fast appears as though it could be an effective weight loss regimen. However, there may be some concerns about the amount of sugar that is included in these products. These days manufacturers tend to put less sugar in products due to the crash and burn effects that it can have, especially when following a diet with such low caloric intake. Also, it may not be realistic to believe that this is a lifelong solution to weight loss due to the fact that someone simply may want to go their entire lives having to buy Slim Fast products in order to maintain their weight.
