Slim Fast

After having kids, it’s been pretty hard to keep my weight at a manageable level.  Having a houseful of people to cook for and feed makes sticking to a particular diet pretty hard.  I do not have the time (okay the desire) to go to a gym, so that is out as well. I found myself wondering just what I could do to work on my weight that would not require so much effort. Then I heard about the Slim Fast 3-2-1 plan.  I found that it had a flexibility to my liking, and I did get results. The shakes taste great and I even use them in my coffee as a creamer substitute. The chocolate Slim-Fast drink makes my coffee taste almost like a hot cocoa!

While on the plan, you can have three snacks a day, such as fruits, nuts, or snack bars.  I found that the Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars really helped me keep any cravings at bay.  You also get to have two Slim-Fast shakes a day, and let me tell you, these things taste great.  There are quite a few flavors out there, but I mostly stuck to the Creamy Milk Chocolate and Strawberries N’ Cream ones.  In addition to the shakes and snacks, you get one balanced 500 calorie meal.
