was one of the original meal replacement shakes. I still remember their old commercials, where they talked about having a shake for breakfast, another one for lunch, and then a sensible dinner. But nostalgia aside, how do their shakes stack up to competition? Read my review and find out.
It costs $17 for 34 servings of SlimFast 3-2-1 shake, which is a pretty great deal. Seriously, that’s around 50 cents a shake. It leaves plenty of money left over to buy some almond milk, fresh strawberries, or whatever else you like to add to your shake.
Slim Fast shakes come in four flavors: French Vanilla, Strawberry Supreme, Creamy Milk Chocolate, and Chocolate Royale. That’s right — two different chocolate flavors. But then, I’ve never been one to complain about too much chocolate. I went with Chocolate Royale. It tasted delicious, like a dark chocolate bar melted into shake form.
APPETITE BLOCKER: B-
As good as the taste was, I wish it kept me full longer. Too often, I found myself craving snacks before lunch or dinner. Sometimes I even wanted to have my next shake early. And I know it’s wrong to have my lunch shake just two hours after my breakfast one.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE: B-
The Slim-Fast Shake Mix has 200 calories per serving, which is decent for a meal replacement shake. And while the 10 grams of protein are nice, 22 grams of sugar just seems like overkill. I know they want it to taste good, but you have to draw the line somewhere.
SlimFast gets points for tasting great and having a price that won’t burn a hole through your pocketbook. But if you’re looking for a shake that will keep you full from one meal to the next, you might want to try something else.
