    Can anyone tell me what benefit is there to buying a factory-made slimming shake (which are expensive) which is fill of artificial sweeteners and chemicals, rather than drinking a half pint of skimmed milk and taking vitamin pills (which would only cost pennies per serving and contain no nasty additives)?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply, Simply. I totally agree that real food is best, and I am eating loads of it every day myself. But I was thinking on behalf of people who buy a Slimfast to have at work or whilst travelling, or who lash out a lot of money on Cambridge meal replacement shakes. I was just pondering really, whether real fresh milk and vitamin pills would not only be a fraction of the price, but more healthy.

    But then I think maybe they put a lot of fillers or fibre or something in the shakes to make you feel full up.
