Slim Fast - Other Issues
Some other things we "discovered" while on Slim Fast:
(Note: This is the second part of a 2-part article. You should read Part 1 first, which you can see here: Shake Diet)
* You'll often see Slim Fast products referred to as "Overpriced Sugar-Milk", because the top 3 ingredients listed on the can are: milk, sugar, fructose. This is why Health Experts attack the shakes and bars as "over-processed and overflowing with artificial ingredients". They say you would be better off drinking low-fat milk. (And that would be much cheaper!)
* You are frequently hungry while on the diet. Actually, "hungry" doesn't say it right. "Starving" is more like it! Health Experts say this is because the calories you're allowed per day is set much too low. Plus, all that sugar in their shakes and bars, mean that your blood sugar levels shoot up and then crash. This makes your feelings of starvation, even worse!
* On top of that, there's the frequently-reported "chalky" taste. I've even read reviews where the dieter says they "gagged" on the terrible aftertaste. I can recall feeling depressed and deprived, restricted to Slim Fast while eating with a group of people... watching as they enjoyed while I suffered!
Then there is the Final Problem - the one that makes all your suffering on the Slim Fast diet, not worth it after all:
* Because the diet is based on replacing healthy meals with artificial pre-made substitutes, it encourages you to maintain bad eating habits. Even though it may work in the near-term, once you reach your bodyfat goal and return to "normal" eating, the fat comes back rapidly. Many who used this diet plan said that after it was all over, they had MORE bodyfat than they did to begin with!
