    I use Slim Fast regularly, but I follow my own plan. It's quite tasty, fairly cheap and easy to find. Like you I began to feel ill on CD and finally decided that SS wasn't for me.

    The problem for many people here is that CD and SF are polar opposites. If you switch directly from SS and ketosis to the high carb/higher calorie content of SF you can suffer an alarmingly large water regain, accompanied by a sudden increase in appetite. Both problems are only temporary but they can take a while to disappear. This discourages peeps.

    Good luck, and keep going.

    I actually really like the Slimfast products. They are great as a quick breakfast, because you can eat/drink them on the commute, and they keep you satisfied until you can have a mid-morning snack or lunch (depending on how early you eat them...lol). I have always incorporated them into my plan whenever I have tried to lose weight, and I think they're great. Yay for Slimfast.

    I also tried slim fast about a year ago. First I really liked the shakes and I also lost some weight. But after a few weeks I really felt like eating something else. I even felt nauseous when I had to drink another shake. But maybe this kind of diet simply wasn't right for me. Nevertheless I wish you good luck on this programm. Hopefully it is great for you!

    And that is the most important thing! There are so many different ways to lose some weight and people are different. Probably this is really the best way for you to lose weight. I wish you so much luck and I am really looking forward to hear about your success! I am sure you will make it!

    Hi Sparkles,I am pretty new to slim fast too,so i dont know that much about it.I have been on it just under a week after just coming off cd and i have gained a couple of lbs but i am not worried about as i did expect it but hopefully i will have dropped them soon.So dont worry if you have the same.You might find after a couple of days that you need a snack in between shakes,I have carrots sticks handy or caramel snack a jacks which are low in cals(about 62 each for a jumbo one).I still drink the same amount of water which as you know keeps the hunger at bay not that i am really hungery but you know what i mean.Hope it goes well for you.Please let us know how you go on.Lucyxx

    Hey I'm on slim fast.
    Its good to know i'm not the only one :)
    Its the best diet out there for me personally. I really wouldn't swap it for any other. I lost 5 stone on it after having my daughter 3 years ago and kept it off for a year and a half without any problems. Until I got pregnant again with my son that is.
    Back on it now however.
    Its good to see some other slim fast converts on here :)
