ABOUT THE DIET
Back To Top

SlimFast is a diet which uses meal replacement shakes in place of regular food. One shake is taken for breakfast, another for lunch, with a regular, whole food dinner. One SlimFast shake contains 240 calories. The shakes have a healthy caloric breakdown and include vitamins and minerals to make up for the whole foods they are replacing. With one regular meal per day, the SlimFast diet will total a little over 1,000 calories.

EXERCISE DURING THE DIET
Back To Top

Although no exercise is specified, daily aerobic and cardio training is always beneficial. However, due to the low calorie nature of this diet, it may not be easy to exercise.

ADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top

The SlimFast diet is very simple and convenient if your goal is to lose weight fast. You do get to eat one normal meal to help keep you happy throughout the diet.

DISADVANTAGES OF THE DIET
Back To Top As with every other meal replacement shake out there, SlimFast shakes are fairly expensive. Aside from this, the SlimFast diet does not allow people to learn successful eating habits (for a diet which does teach good nutrition habits, see Weight Watchers Diet

CONCLUSION
Back To Top

The SlimFast diet is an incredibly easy diet to follow, and although it is restrictive, it is fairly balanced in its micronutrient breakdown. It does not specifically restrict one any given nutrient, or any vitamins & minerals. However, overall caloric intake is more restrictive than it should be. So, this diet offers both good and bad, and although there are many diets out there which are superior, the SlimFast diet is not necessarily one to be overlooked.
