Putting Slim Fast to the test! Review the Slim Fast Plan- One month challenge! Day Four!

Hi everyone,

well day four was a little tricky! Not because of the diet but just because I was sick. I had a migraine all day and was in bed. I just drank a lot of fluids but I still had two shakes, one small meal and one snack. It’s not perfect but it was the most I could manage.

My calories intake was low, but so was my expenditure.

Here is my food diary for today

Breakfast. Chocolate shake 230 kcal

Lunch. Caramel shake 200 kcal

Snack. Slim fast pretzels 95 kcal

Dinner. Small wholemeal bread roll, one cup of spinach, Philadelphia cream cheese. Approx. 200 kcal

One tea with sugar 30 kcal

TOTAL 755 kcal

Weight loss -0.5 pounds

Total weight loss so far 3 pounds


Putting Slim Fast to the test! Review the Slim Fast Plan- One month challenge! Day Three!

Hi everyone! Well so far the Slim Fast diet has been really easy, and pretty tasty! The only stumbling block so far was I woke up at four in the morning hungry. I just felt really empty, so much so it woke me from my sleep. By the time I got up and was ready for breakfast I didn’t feel too hungry.

To go alongside the Slim Fast my partner brought home a Tesco version of 200 kcal per serving. I tried one of these instead of the Slim Fast today before buying some more Slim Fast today. I may alternate between the two. I figure it doesn’t make a difference to the review as the concept is the same.

It was pretty much my normal routine today plus a dance class in the evening.

Here is my food diary for today

Breakfast. Chocolate shake 230 kcal

Snack. Chocolate caramel bar 95 kcal

Lunch. Tesco Ultra Slim 200 kcal

Snack. Small banana 95 kcal

Dinner. Two wholemeal bread buns, one poached egg with spinach and ketchup. approx. 500 kcal

TOTAL 1120 kcal

Weight loss -1 pound

Total weight loss so far 2.5 pounds

So, so far Slim Fast doesn’t feel like a diet at all. I’m never fully full, but I do always feel quite satisfied with what I’ve consumed. I haven’t yet been doing any great physical activity, just day to day stuff. I feel like if I did do some heavier exercise then I would really be craving something more than the shakes or a bigger snack.

This is my food diary for today;

Breakfast. Chocolate shake 230 kcal

Snack. Small apple 30 kcal

Lunch. Chocolate shake 230 kcal

Snack. Kale and lentil 80 kcal

Dinner. Spaghetti with steamed vegetables and raw spinach and soy sauce. 450kcal

Water and 2x coffee with milk 60kcal

TOTAL 1080 kcal

-1 pound

Total loss so far 1.5 pounds

Putting Slim Fast to the test! Review the Slim Fast Plan- One month challenge!

I’m feeling a little crazy and I feel like a new challenge. I am such an advocate of wellness and natural food sources that I’m really curious to see if something like Slim Fast really works. It contains processed materials and sugar so I am very skeptical as to whether simply a calorie reduction even eating processed material is enough to lose weight.

I am a hugely faddy eater. I have the kind of personality where I become obsessed with certain foods for a while. Eat them so often I become bored and move on to the next thing. The only thing that remains consistent is I have always craved carbohydrates and sugar. Sometimes I give in to this, occasionally to excess, sometimes I indulge moderately (least likely) and I often ban them from my diet completely.

In short, I enjoy extremes.

I am currently a healthy weight for my height. I exercise but I am not an athletic build.

I have dedicated my body to Slim Fast for one month in the name of anyone who has ever wondered if shakes really do work. Here goes!



Breakfast. Rich chocolate shake 230 kcal

Snack. Small apple 30 kcal

Lunch. Rich chocolate shake 23o kcal

Snack. Some mouthfuls of lentils. 1 small apple. 60 kcal

Dinner. 100g wholewheat pasta, mushrooms and soy sauce 373 kcal

Drinks. Water and 2 cups of coffee with milk 60 kcal

TOTAL: 983 kcal

-0.5 pounds

See you tomorrow!

Juice fast re-start day 3

Hi everyone, well it’s day 3, and my final day fotomorroww. I have a sushi lunch date tomorrow so it’s good timing 🙂 I really feel like I’m craving proteins and water today sso I think I’ll be having mostly water today and less juice. I didn’t have opportunity to take my normal body shot this morning, so here’s a clothed one to substitute.

Weight 8 stone 9.5 (bmi 21.4)


I will post my final before and after pictures tomorrow.


Juice fast re-start day 2

Sooo, day two of my juice fast. I’m feeling really good, no detox side effects this time! I was a little hungry at the end of yesterday which maybe means I didn’t drink enough. I also left it a little late before my first juice this morning which was a little silly. I have been experimenting with some recipes today. Some hits some misses! But all in all not a bad day.

Weight today 8 stone 10.5 (bmi 21.6)


Juice fast re-start

Hi everyone. So,  over a week ago I was 2 days into a 10 day fast when my juicer broke. I got my new one a few days ago which is awesome, so I’ve started a new fast. It is a big birthday for me in just over a week, so I still have a bit of time to fast. I want to be able to eat normally again by my birthday as I am going away and will be eating out etc. I figured this gives me enough time for a 3 day fast. So my last fast was 2 1/2 days! Even on such a short fast I can see a difference. Here is the before and after:

Before 9 stone, after 8 stone 12.


So today I have begun my 3 days, so here is today’s picture. I’ve been brave enough to ditch the heals this time!

8 stone 11.5 (bmi 21.9)
