Until a few years ago, I could eat whatever I wanted and not worry about weight. Then I hit 30... Now, I don't stress too much about my figure, but every now and then I realize I've gone up a bit and its time to bring it back down to a weight I'm more comfortable with. I like food, I can't help it, especially anything sweet!
Over the years, I've tried several different diets, from big name companies to online programs and everything in between. I know the true secret to weight loss is reduced calorie intake and portion control. It's that portion control that's a problem for me! Put something yummy in front of me and control goes out the window.
Even with all the options out there on the market, I usually go back to Slim-Fast. Why? Well, it's easy. And yummy! If I keep the shakes in the fridge and the snacks handy, I don't have to think about it. Sometimes thinking about what is the most nutritious option leads me to not eating, which leads me to starving and before I know it, eating everything in sight!!!
Slim-Fasts 3-2-1 plan is super easy, 3 snacks (their bars, fruit or other 100 calorie food), 2 Slim-Fast meal replacements (shake or bar) and 1 balanced meal of about 500 calories. The best part is so much of this is portable! I keep a box of the snack bars and meal bars in my car, just incase I'm out and need to grab something quick. When I'm trying to get the kids out the door for school, a Slim-Fast shake is a quick and easy breakfast.
Stores nationwide (including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger and online at Amazon.com and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook) carry Slim-Fast and many of the snacks have chocolate in them, on them, all over them! That right there is a huge help to my sweet tooth. Plus, Slim-Fast's new shakes now come in a closable bottle in 5 great flavors including my favorite, Rich Chocolate Royale.
