    Hi, does anyone use low carb shakes as a meal replacement? I like the idea of a slimfast shake for breakfast, and maybe lunch, but I've heard that they are full of sugar.

    I keep seeing the big tubs of whey protein shake powder in holland and barrett - are these for bodybuilders?

    I've tried looking online and see that Tesco do low carb shakes (although this may be old), but I don't have a Tesco near me. Also it looks like there is low carb slim fast available in the USA (but not here??).

    Can anyone enlighten me please?

    Thanks.

    Hiya

    I've had the Atkins chocolate shake as a meal replacement - does the job

    I use the Atkins advantage shake tins, they are only £11ish on boots.com, I always make sure I have a multi vit as they are not supposed to be a single food source. There are also some shakes on the avidlite website but I think they are about £18 each

    I'd avoid Slimfast as they contain sugar and are not really low-carb. If you want shakes, try Exante.

    I don't know why Slim Fast don't release the Slim Fast Optima that they have in the USA, it's low carb. Maybe they make lots of money out of keeping peoples sugar levels up in the UK

    I know, it's crazy - I would never pour that much sugar into my body if i was trying to lose weight!
