    Slim fast long term??

    Hiya, just a quick question.

    I've now been on slim fast for 6 weeks and lost 24lb, which i'm pretty pleased about (as you can probably guess!!). I just wondered what experience people have of using slim fast as a long-term diet and whether the weight loss stays consistent or if people tend to reach a plateau after a while?? I've tried (and failed) on other diets before such as slimming world and weight watchers but this one just seems to work for me and i'm not getting bored on it yet which I tend to do pretty easily!!

    Anyway, if people could share any long-term successes to keep me spurred on i'd be grateful!!! Most people I talk to have done it either to shift a few extra pounds for an event or to kick start a diet

    Thumbs up

    24lb in six weeks is excellent and it is great that you have found a diet that suits you.

    I would say stick with it, why would you change now seeing how happy you are with it and the results are brilliant?

    I think regardless of diet everyone hits plateaus from time to time...

    Hopefully someone who has done Slim Fast will be along shortly and be able to let you know more about how they found the diet long term.

    Once again well done on losing 24lb

    Love Mini xxx

    First of all well done on your loss so far you're doing great! x

    I did Slim Fast for 9 months before I got pregnant, I'd do a few weeks by the book and then do others half-arsed or not at all. In my experience the times I was doing the diet by the book my losses were consistant and almost predictable. One of my blog posts has my weekly losses in it if you wanna see how I did. After my last weight entry I didn't weigh myself again until I was about 12 weeks pregnant (the batteries had gone in my scales
    ) so I couldn't tell you how well I maintained

    What I think is so good about Slim Fast is that because you still have to calorie count and prepare your evening meal and snacks you're teaching yourself healthy eating and portion control which should in my opinion help with keeping the weight off once you hit your target weight.

    Thanks guys, i'm intending on staying on it for now, especially since i've just weighed in and lost another 5lb this week...now lost over 2 stone woop!!

    Stickynicki - I wasn't sure which diet to do either, I was looking at doing Lipotrim (as my sister had some success on it last year) but thought i'd start off on slim fast, because a) it seemed cheaper, b) less effort and c) i wanted to see if I could actually use partial food replacement before going on a total food replacement. Slim Fast seems to be working for me though and i'm actually finding it quite easy so think i'll stick to it for now!!

    I would love to be able to loose a stone but i dont think its possible as i love socialising at X-mas and this means drinking & eating so i will contine on my forward path for now and in the new year really crack down. But good luck with everyone who is participating in the challenge. I had x3 107 calorie kitkats last night whilst watching Corronation street... naughty! : (

    Since having my kids i've piled the weight back on but i did slimfast when i was younger to lose a lot of weight and i found the weight loss pretty much consistent, however, every so often i did find the weight loss would stop. I found the way to get over this was to have a week or so OFF the diet, go awol, eat what you want.....you may put a couple of pounds back on but it gives your metabolism a boost so that then when you go back on plan the weight starts falling off again.
    If you really don't want to go off plan (for fear of not being able to get back on) then exercise is the only other way to boost the weight loss again, but with that, once you start you HAVE to keep going. Going swimming 2/3 times a week, walking instead of taking the car. Everything helps.

    I lost about 2 and a half stone on slimfast, worked really really well but then I hit a plateau. Started doing JUDDD which I'm finding easy to stick to but might go back to slimfast again at some point. Well done everyone on you weight loss!
