Hi from London

I'm new, obviously :) I have about 70 or 75 pounds to lose (I'm originally from the USA so I understand pounds more than stones or kilos). I am on Slimfast right now and I am thinking of doing Exante. :) I have too much stress in my life right now and I hate cooking, so a pre made plan like that sounds so great. Not having to worry about shopping or meal plans for a while would be amazing. I am going to read more posts on here and do more research online over the weekend, before I order a bumper pack. :)

hey!


I know people who have lost weight easily with both slimfast and a meal delivery diet. I think the main reason is portion control. If you have set meals, you have set calories per meal, and are soo much less likely to overeat. I know from experience that the extra helping at meals is often something that you don't think twice about, i mean whats a couple more spoon fulls? the problem is do this every meal and the calories soon add up :(


I've tried slimfast milkshakes before, I only substituted lunch, instead of 2 meals. I found it helped me keep my calories down for the day and did help me stick to my low calorie diet. I actually liked the tatse of them too :) and I wasn't as hungry as I thoughtI would be!


I say give it a go if you have trouble controlling portions! even if it's just for one meal a day.


Let me know how it goes and good luck!

thanks everyone, for your replies. :)

after a week or so doing slimfast, I have to say that I believe the shakes are too high in sugar for me to use as a total meal replacement. I notice that I get hungry again very quickly and this results in a midmorning hunger, maybe an hour and a half to two hours after having a shake. However, I can see myself using them later down the line for maintenance. They are 230 calories or thereabouts, and if you consider a typical dessert can be upwards of 500 (!!!), I think having a slimfast choc shake instead of, say, cake.. would be a healthy option.

in the meantime, for weight loss purposes, I have ordered an exante bumper pack of shakes and soups. the bars don't sound all that good, i have to say! :/

If any of you are wanting to know a good hand blender, I got one at Argos that is REALLY phenomenal. It's a Phillips HR1341, according to the box. it is so easy to clean and it takes no time at all to blend up a nice shake. :) I think it was about 18.00 but worth it, in my opinion.
