    I'm a student too.. but don't mind buying the slim fast as its nearly always 2 for 2 pound in r tescos!! which is nothing when I thought about how much I used to spend on breakfast and lunch when out and about!! I've seen the tesco ones and was going to buy some but don't know if they work as well or would taste as nice!! xx

    I found the Tesco version a lot sweeter than Slim Fast but other than that they are pretty much the same, if they weren't so sweet I would probably buy the Tesco version too 'cause every little does help especially this close to Christmas ;)

    They're £6.00 each usually are you sure she said £2.00 a tin 'cause that seems a little too good to be true :S

    Wilkinsons do them for £4.50 a tin not on offer which is the cheapest I've found :)

    I bought the hot choc by tesco and sorry but it was pants!! Not too fussed on their bars either, also havent tried any of the shakes a bit put off after the hot choc. I will stick to the slim fast brand me thinks. Good luck on the Tesco version though if you enjoy the taste.

    i started yesterday! Dont have much to lose im 8stone 8 but have had 2 babies so ive got a bit to lose now! Not sure if im doing it right though, i have a shake 4 breakfast & 1 for lunch and a slim a soup and piece of bread 4 dinner. But in between that ill prob have one piece of fruit, one slimfast snack bar and one low calorie yoghurt as snacks. Am i allowed these or is it better to just have the shakes and dinner? Hope you do well with your weight loss :) x

    not sure about the tesco program, but im assuming its the same as the slim fast one, in that you can have 600 cal meal in the evening (or lunch if you prefer) and then you can have up to 100 cal snacks.....
    dont starve yourself. if your body wants something to snack on, then choose healthy options

    thanks hun. Well i worked out the calorie intake my body would need to maintain its weight and it came to 1800, so accordin to the 'how to slimfast' thread if i want to lose 2lb a week id have to be eating 800calories so im guna try and stick as close to that as i can. My bf was cooking chinese chicken last nite i was so tempted to have some but managed to stop myself, its so much harder when people are eating around u! Ive heard the lighter u are the slower u
    Lose weight, do u know if thats true?

    well my bf just measured me and it showed i was 5ft 3.5 altho last time i got measured a few years ago i was 5ft 4 so thats a little worrying lol! ive noticed the slim'a'soups are only about 60calories and these fill me up more than the shakes.. wouldnt it be better 4 me to just have one of these instead of a lunchtime shake? or not? lol x

    im not sure on the shakes vers the soup things.. as im not familiar with them... all i can kinda think of is the vitimins and minerals that we in the shakes are topping up what your body needs. so it might be worth if you are going to do that to take a a-z suppliment as well... well thats what i would do.. (and i am doing anyway as well)

    can i also ask if there is a reason you would like to go so low?
    your bmi surely would be below what is Normal??
    sorry if im being nosy..

    im not a dvd person really... i am a wii fit girl. and thats about all i get time for.. although i know i should exercise more....
    if you have a wii fit, there is the wii fit + game thingy out tomorrow that allows you to target the areas you want, and just to exercises that are say focused on your bum, or tummy... im going to have a look at it more and maybe get it....
    i am working so much at the moment and im not really getting anywhere with the exercise, but i guess being a nanny and spending 99% of the day on your feet (apart from now as they are sleeping)
