My husband needed to lose some weight and decided to try the Slim-Fast drinks. One drink is suitable for a meal, and my husband said they really didn't taste bad. They also come in different flavors, so you aren't stuck drinking the same flavor time after time.
The only problem was the cost. Paying around $6.00 for a six-pack of drinks doesn't sound bad in and of itself, but when you consider the fact that you may be taking a few of these a day, they go very quickly. You would be buying it all of the time, and the cost can add up fast. My husband wasn't too fond of this idea, so he decided to just make more of an effort to change his diet and eat foods that were more healthy and less fattening. He is taking off some weight, so it seems to be working for him.
Slim-Fast is a good drink and would most likely be very beneficial in the quest to lose weight. The only problem my husband had with it was the cost. That was my only reason for giving it a lower rating. But if the cost is no problem for you, Slim-Fast would probably do just fine.
