Like most people, there are occasions in my life when I want to look my best. Sometimes it can require getting my nails done, a little hair color or even to shed a few pounds to fit in that special outfit. While there are a lot of options for shedding those pounds, pills, fad food diets and tight fitting shape wear, few of them are safe or comfortable. When I want to lose weight, I feel it’s important that my health isn’t compromised in the process.
That’s where the Slim-Fast 3 2 1 Plan comes in to play. For years, I’ve enjoyed the shakes as meal replacement options and now they’ve gotten even better. The new Slim-Fast shakes are part of the Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan, The plan gives you quick results* – done right. Plus it’s flexible so you can get the structure you want and the variety you crave. Just follow the plan:
How Does the Slim-Fast 3 2 1 Plan Work?
3 – Pick three nourishing snacks a day – Slim·Fast 100-calorie snack bars, nuts, fruits and/or veggies.(Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars provide a delicious calorie-controlled snack to help curb sweet cravings between meals)
2 – Pick two Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day: Slim-Fast shakes and meal bars are satisfying, providing the balanced nutrition of a meal and up to four hours of hunger control.
1 – Create one Balanced Meal: Enjoy one balanced 500-calorie meal per day. As a rule, try to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and a quarter with whole grain.
In about two weeks we’ll be taking our family portrait for the holidays. With all of the sweets I’ve been craving lately, it hasn’t helped the extra flab under my chin one bit. As trivial as that sounds, it’s the one place I gain and lose weight easily so I thought the Slim-Fast 3 2 1 Plan would be perfect for taking care of it before the pictures.
For me, the thing about the Slim-Fast 3 2 1 Plan that I enjoy the most is that even though I’m cutting out some of my favorite foods (especially sweets) I’m not losing out on sweet flavors. I was given the opportunity to try the new shake flavors and they are rich!
Just today I enjoyed the Creamy Milk Chocolate Slim-Fast Shake for breakfast. Yes, chocolate for breakfast and it was great!
Between breakfast and lunch I enjoyed a frozen banana snack and then treated myself to an Iced Cappuccino Delight shake for lunch. It’s hard to believe that something so sweet could replace my lunch but it did. Of all the flavors I tried, this was my favorite because it tastes more like a creamy coffee drink than diet shake.
I’d imagine that after the holidays you’ll have a reason to drop a few pounds too. That’s why I’m so happy to share the Slim-Fast 3 2 1 Plan with you.
