Slimfast Diet

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Well, I have gone through all kinds of diets and honestly I haven't been good to follow through on most of them. So I thought I would give Slimfast a try! i like the taste of their shakes, it doesn't break the bank, they are easy to buy and overall the plan is simply layed out. So I'm going to give it my best try! I started yesterday and honestly it went really well!

Monday - I had my two shakes for breakfast and Lunch, my snacks were a small salad, greek yogurt and an Atkins snack bar. For dinner I had Chicken and Gnocchi soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. Total Cal

Tuesday - Weighed myself after my run at 0600 - Weighed 163 (want to lose 18lbs)
I had my two shakes for breakfast and Lunch, my snacks were a small salad, greek yogurt and 100 cal popcorn bag. For dinner 3.4c rice, 3oz chicken, 1/4c of Korma Curry. Total Cal 1200.

So far I really feel good, I really do hope I can keep this up! A guy at work bet two weeks I would last so I need to show him up! :)

    I am on the Slimfast plan too. I started a week ago and have lost 5 pounds. I realize this is not the most perfect diet but for now I am sticking with it until I lose 50 pounds. My one regular meal has lean meat, grains, fruit, and veges every day. My Dr told me to get the weight off as quickly as possible but making sure I eat at least one healthy nutritious meal a day and then work on maintenance. So I am heading in that direction.

    We all have to do what we feel works for us. I don't think that this is very healthy as I don't think you are getting enough protein in with these shakes. And like stated, usually when we stop these lose fast diets we tend to gain our weight back. I believe in clean eating. Portion control and measuring our foods. And Journal what you eat each meal so that you can see if what you are eating is balanced or not.

    The real challenge with this diet is with long term maintenance after the weight comes off. When one stops buying the shakes and snacks and returns to their old style of eating, the pounds start creeping back. The tendency is to go into yo-yo dieting. 1200 calories taken in while at rest is absolutely the bare minimum to keep one's body from going into starvation mode where metabolism slows. Our bodies are built for survival. If one is active - like with running daily, starvation mode is guaranteed at 1200 calories. Why not finish up your 2 weeks with what you're now doing so you can win your bet, then explore a wiser, slower method of weight loss to take off what remains of your 18 pound goal. There are lots of great articles here on the Spark that can help you to do this and teams to help you stay focused. Try the Spark...you'll like it!
