    Saw the shakes on offer today for a big tub and thought i'd read about almost every diet i'd ever heard of on this site, but i haven't actually heard alot about slimfast.

    Has anyone tried it? is it even nice? would you recommend it?

    Pleeeeease help me so confused don't know which direction to go into as defo cant afford cambridge, a student who eats meals worth 50p at the most so times hahaha

    any help would be greatly appreciated guys and gals

    I dont know that Slimfast is one that many if any people on Minimins do.

    Obviously youd have to buy the shakes and food if youre on a tight budget would WW or SW not be easier? :)

    My sister did Slimfast for a month or so before she went to Turkey and lost just over half a stone. It does work (as with any diet, IF you stick to it) but you have to have a balanced, healthy calorie-counted meal along with the two shakes in order to see some success.

    The good thing I suppose it that you only have to make an effort and calorie count for ONE meal a day - the other two are already calorie counted for you in the shakes. Anything is worth a try ... it might be the one that works for you, although it depends on how much you have to lose - I've not heard of anyone losing lots of weight over a long period with it.

    Maybe it's more suitable for people who just want to lose a couple of stone or so.

    Just to point out your MUSTN'T do Slimfast like Cambridge or Lighterlife and just have the Slimfast Shakes and water.

    The nutrients in Slimfast are not correctly balanced to keep you healthy while you lost weight, Slimfast themselves state that you mustn't just have the shakes as you won't be nutritionally sound.

    Therefore please don't do a Cambridge/Lighterlife substiture with Slimfast as you will be doing yourself more harm than good.

    hey the tubswere on offer in pound stretcher for £3.50 and think that was for 12 or 15 shakes so last ya a good while that will.

    defo not doing that where u do three shakes a day thats dangerous, i think those combined with a healthy choice meal of under 600 cals and the gym everyday i might see results

    i just have to wait until after freshers week so i can take out the amount of calories il be using for that week as thats not going to be good so diet starts in two weeks properly

    and im sticking to it - going to come back home at xmas a stick insect hopefully hahaha just kidding!!

    Annie if you do the shakes and a low calorie meal then you will lose weight, of that there is no doubt!

    Just make sure you get at least a couple of litres of water a day down with it as that will really speed up the results.

    not sure whether to do the tins or to get the ready made shakes..not sure which one will be better sure its not that important like as long as i stick to it. they have nice snack bars too apaprently so might invest in a few of them for myself haha as a treat.
    yeah them nasty bastards live near me unfortunately but each comment they make only makes me even more determined to loose the weight and keep it off so when i do come back he can look but cant touch haha...hes such a loser!
