Get Ready for the New Year With Slim Fast

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Well, it's almost that time again.  It's the time for Christmas to come and go and New Year's to be upon us.  And a good share of us will make a New Year's Resolution to finally get healthy and lose weight.  And by about the end of January, the vast majority of us will give up, right?  Sound familiar?  Trust me, I have been there, done that, worn that t-shirt, as the saying goes.

Since I was in junior high school, I have been dieting.  I have been up and down, and it used to be quite a struggle.  I generally would get the weight off and then get busy and put it back on.  To look at me now, you would never know that I was once 60 or 70 pounds overweight, but I was.  It took me a long time to understand that it was not about dieting, but it was about a change in lifestyle.

I have always been one (and I still am!) who hunts for healthy snacks.  I watch my carbs, calories, fats, etc.  I am always pleased when I find a brand that I know will fill me up, taste great, and give my body the nutrition it needs.  Slim Fast has been around for quite a while, and I have always supplemented my diet with their products to some extent.  Indeed they are a trusted brand with a fine history.

Well, Slim Fast has done it again!  They are kicking off their new diet plan called Slim·Fast® 3·2·1 plan.  One of their staples is their shakes--which I was privileged to try.


Here is some information about this new Slim-Fast plan:

• The new Slim-Fast shakes are part of the Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan, The plan gives you quick results* - done right. Plus it’s flexible so you can get the structure you want and the variety you crave. Just follow the plan:
• 3 Snacks: Three nourishing snacks a day such as Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars, fruit, nuts or veggies
• Slim-Fast 100-calorie snack bars provide a delicious calorie-controlled snack to help curb sweet cravings between meals
• 2 Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day: Slim-Fast shakes and meal bars are delicious and satisfying, providing the balanced nutrition of a meal and up to four hours of hunger control
• 1 Balanced Meal: Enjoy one balanced 500-calorie meal per day. As a rule, try to fill half your plate with veggies, a quarter with protein, and a quarter with whole grains
• The new Slim-Fast shakes are available in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and Kroger and online at and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Store on Facebook.

Of course, the question everyone wonders is--do these shakes live up to all the advertising hype? 

First of all, before I do that (and I will, I promise!), here is a little more information about the shakes:

Losing weight shouldn’t mean sacrificing taste. The new Slim-Fast shakes will wow your taste buds, provide up to four hours of hunger control and offer 10 grams of protein, five grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals, making it easier for you to stick to your plan and achieve your weight loss goals. Flavors available in the new Slim-Fast bottle include:
• Creamy Milk Chocolate
• French Vanilla
• Rich Chocolate Royale
• Cappuccino Delight
• Strawberries N’ Cream

When I went to the store, I picked out the Cappuccino Delight.  I remember the days when they only had chocolate and vanilla.  I love the choices they have now!  And I have to say that this shake did not disappoint!  The flavor was rich and creamy.  Based on past experience, I told my mom that there was no way this shake would full me up for much more than an hour.  Boy, was I ever wrong!  It says it will keep you full for up to 4 hours, and I really was not hungry for about 3 hours afterwards.  I really can't complain!  I was impressed with everything about these shakes.  I found that I didn't even crave sweets and empty calories during those few hours!

So let's talk specifics, shall we?  Just how can this Slim Fast plan help you shed those extra pounds that most of us pick up during the holidays?  With all the range of snacks and shakes available, I honestly don't even think you have to wait until the New Year to start!  This plan can help you maintain your weight  through the holidays by eating their snacks and drinking their shakes instead of overloading on junk food throughout the holiday season.  And then when January comes, you can continue using their plan to get off that extra weight that you just can't seem to lose!  There really isn't anything simpler out there than this plan.  Even for busy schedules like mine and yours.  So be sure to check out the Slim·Fast® 3·2·1 plan now, and get ready to start 2012 off as a healthier you!

Also, don't forget to like them on facebook.
