Am gonna have it for breakfast (may sometimes have special K) and lunch and then for dinner going to have just stir fry veggies with stir fry sauce. Am gonna try stick at it for a month with nothing else. Do you think i will lose much weight.?Health Question & Answer

Surprisingly for a quirky diet aid, there is some evidence that not only are you likely to lose weight on Slimfast IF you follow the instructions, but one good study indicated this loss may be sustained.Health Question & Answer

It is a possibility to lose weight rapidly but you should be realistic and take on board that if you lose weight fast then you will almost certainly put it all back on again just as fast. The only diet that really showed results for me is wu-yi tea, it can be seen in the resource box underneath, they have a few free trials left, it has been highlighted in Fox News and CNN. I lost twenty five pounds, it really does work!Health Question & Answer

It works assuming you intend to live on substitute shakes and Special K for the rest of your life. As soon as you eat normal food again you'll put it back on. People can lose weight on anything, if you just ate a doughnut a day you would lose weight but you can't maintain that throughout life and that is the point.
How much you lose depends on what you weigh now, if you have a lot of weight to lose you may lose a stone in a month (14lbs), if you're already slim you may drop a few pounds....until you start eating normal food again, then you'll put it back on PLUS EXTRA.Health Question & Answer

I haven't tried slim fast but I have tried something like it, actually I'm on it now as I had a baby not long ago so trying to lose some of that baby-weight and I've lost 4kg in two weeks which is great for me as I find it really hard to lose weight but I am exercising as well so that may make a difference.
Good Luck!Health Question & Answer

yea you will loose a lot of weight! but once you stop drinking the slimfast and start eating real food in its will gain it alllllll back! try something else if you want to keep it offHealth Question & Answer

I think it does but I've read from several different sources that its not good for you in the long term so I'd suggest another way of losing weight.Health Question & Answer

Yes, until you come off it and your body reacts to having normal food again. When you will more than likely put on more than you lost in the first place.Health Question & Answer

Yes, as long asyou stick with it and use it properly. Mix in some excercise.Health Question & Answer

the milkshakes are good if u have one for breakfast my dad lost loads using slimfasst ;)Health Question & Answer

yes it does work but there are few DIET FRAUDS here is the more information .?186452" rel="nofollow"> Question & Answer

yep I think it will.Health Question & Answer

If you did that, you would definitely lose weight, but I don't think you'd be getting enough calories. If you restrict your calories to under 1,200 per day, your body goes into "starvation mode" and lowers your metabolism. Each Slim Fast has about 200 calories, and your dinner sounds like it would have no more than 400 (depending on the calories in the stir fry sauce and any oil you use to cook the vegetables), which would only be about 800 total calories. I think you should add some lean protein to your dinner and a snack of some fruit, low fat cheese, whole grain crackers, or something like that.Health Question & Answer

yeah it prolly will work...but y not just go on a 1200 calorie a day diet.

if u do the eating pattern you say...then you will gain the weight me i have been there.

6 months ago..i went on a 1200 calorie a day diet..and lost 28lbs to weight 140lbs...thing is 1200 calories is plenty of food for me now and its not a struggle to keep the weight off.

trust me..that diet u speak of...u will loose loads of weight...but prolly more muscle than fat..and then u will gain it back once u stop it.

e-mail if you want more advice on what i didHealth Question & Answer

If you stick to it 100% yes you will lose weight, as long as your evening meal is healthy.

BUT..I tried it and found it so difficult. I'm not a big eater but I found myself absolutely starving inbetween! I couldn't concentrate at work because I was counting down the time to lunchtime and my next shake!

However, if you have willpower and motivation then I don't see why it can't work for you. Just be careful that once you come off the shakes and regain a normal diet that the weight doesn't go back on.Health Question & Answer
