HELP!

#1
I have spent the last week trying to get into Slimfast. By this I mean I have been having the drinks, shakes and bars to see if I can do it!

I have got my head round doing it now I just need to get strict - Will this work?

1) 8am - Shake made at home
2) 11am - Shake made at home
3) 2pm Shake made at home
4) Dinner approx 600 cals @ 5pm

I thought I would not do the snacks but rather replace 2 snacks with an extra shake because if I leave it too long between meals I would eat everything in sight - so we are looking at an average of 1200 cals a day plus milk in tea and coffee.

This should be OK shouldn't it?

Hi AnnaMaria

You have to find a way that works for you, I dont get on too well with the shakes so I only have one for breakfast, the tend to make me feel bloated for an hour then I get very hungry. I prefer the meal bars and snacks during the day as It means I can have the odd choc bar or pack of low fat crisps and make the diet not seem to intense. But as I said just find a way that works for you, I so dont do it by the book! Good Luck x

Hi, I need help. I have been on SF for almost 2 weeks now and I haven't lost anything. I don't know what to do, I'm sticking to it completely.

I weigh 12 stone at 5ft.

This is my food intake for avg day;

B = SF Shake/meal bar
L = Meal of 500-600 cals (like pasta/jacket potato/Soup)
Snack of 25g Pretzels = approx 100 cals
D = SF Shake
Snack = SF Choc Peanut Bar 99 cals
Water & Tea/Coffee

Avg, calories 1150 -1300

Please Help, everyone has had such great weight losses with SF and I was hoping that I would too.

I think atchon blimp your calorie intake is a bit too high to lose. I suggest cutting out the snacks and just have the 2 shakes & meal. Usually its around 800=1200 a day can make you lose weight. Try reducing your cals

Hi Atchonblimp 20, are you measuring yourself? I find some weeks I loose inches rather than the pounds id like, I have a lot to loose so it may be different but Im eating the same as you apart from I have a dinner instead of a lunch and I take the weekends off. If your exercising a lot you may just be toning up. Good luck x

im feeling fatter on it after 2 days, but i think my body is adjusting. When i was ON CAMBRIDGE there was the ketosis or fat burning thing happening. but slimfast is a much gentler diet

Have a look on somewhere like foodfocus (many other site will do similar calculation use as rough guide )input your body measurments in profile and it will calculate approx cals you need to loss weight .Hope this helps xx

Thanks MummyEm I have just measured myself and have lost 3 inches in the waist so it must be working, and the gym helping.
Thanks
I have also checked out the calorie calculator mandye and it says I should be having 1600 cals, so having 1100 - 1200 is pretty good.
Thanks.
:)
