    Hi there!

    I am currently on Slimming World and have lost weight well - but am struggling with how much it costs each week (with the classes, the bars and the amounts of fresh food and variation needed each day for three meals!!). I am a Mum of 5 and it's hard to justify strawberries and special stuff just for me, because you just can't afford to feed the whole family that sort of thing every meal, every day!

    I have used Slim Fast before and done well on it - but even that's gone up in price since I last did it. I have noticed the Asda's own shakes though and they are really reasonably priced.

    I just came on here to see if anyone has tried them and it looks like they're good value and they work so I shall be trying them from Tuesday when I next do my shopping.

    Just wanted to introduce myself and say that I am impressed with the weight loss on this forum too. Keep up the good work, and here's hoping I join in with good weight loss myself :D

    Hi Anita :) I don't have an ASDA near me, but I have the Tesco Ultra Slim shakes sometimes, as they're cheaper than Slim Fast too. Just wanted to say welcome to the forum :)

    Thanks for your replies and welcomes!!

    I went to shop at Asda and found that the ready-made shakes (measure up) were about 65p cheaper than the slimfast ones - but the actual Slimfast powders were the same price as the measure up powder and had three more helpings in each tin!!! So I got some of the measure-up ready shakes and two tins of Slimfast.

    We'll see how I get on when I weight myself on Monday!!!!

    Hi, I have been doing this one too the strawberry and yogurt meal bars are nicer than choc and toffee i think and the snack bars are like milky ways always a pleasant treat. I have only got the chocolate ready made shakes am planning on trying the others next shop I have worked out that two boxes of meal bars (6 in total) with 8 ready mades comes to £12 the snack bars are 45p each which I am not sure how that compares to slimfast I didnt even look if I am honest I saw it and thought "brilliant" lol
