WOWYOULOOKAMAZING! Slim-Fast + Giveaways!

You know Slim-Fast.  You drank it.  You used it years ago.   Well.  Slimfast got a makeover.  She's WOW'ing.  No lie. 

I got a package from Slim-Fast with the product, some goodies... and a little button to press, and my newly five year old quickly stole it.  (I found it in the bathroom this morning -- which triggered my memory that I FORGOT TO DO THIS GIVEAWAY.)   The button scares me especially when pressed repeatedly for 10 minutes.  Oo

"Wow- you look amazing.  Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing.  Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing. Wow- you look amazing." 

You used the Slim-Fast before your weight loss surgery.  I did.   Actually, I did.  I had a box in my fridge all the time, back when Slim-Fast came in CANS.

Wait, it doesn't come in cans anymore?  Nope.  They have upgraded.  Slim-Fast is now in sexy bottles, well, as sexy as a bottle of meal replacement or snack CAN be.  I ain't gon lie to you. However, they say it much, much better:

Slim-Fast is shedding the can to introduce its new, best-tasting shake ever – all inside a convenient, on-the-go bottle. The new shakes are creamy, rich and feature 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals, making it easier – and tastier – than ever to go from now to “wow”.

For the typically routed digestive person -aka SOMEONE WHO HASN'T HAD A GASTRIC BYPASS - or someone with a weight loss surgical procedure who can handle a little sugar and carbs - there are lots of Slim-Fast choices - 

  • Meal Bars
  • Shake Mixes
  • Ready To Drink Shakes

I have to disclaimer-rize - because I had gastric bypass - and someone WILL point out - "Beth, there are 18 grams of sugar in that shake," even if I said it.   So, there's THAT.  (PR peeps, although this is a weight loss blog, I am a weight loss surgery patient, we are high maintenance, very particular about our everythings.)

And for those of us who need lower carb options - there are Lower Carb Shakes- which are full of PERFECT -  These are full of win for the 'betes too -

Water, Calcium Caseinate, Milk Protein Concentrate, Canola Oil, Potassium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel, Mono & diglycerides, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Salt, Potassium Citrate, Cellulose Gum, Artificial Flavor, Sucralose (A Non-Nutritive Sweetener), Carrageenan, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Yellow 5 & 6 Lake, Vitamin & Minerals:, Magnesium Phosphate, Sodium Ascorbate, Calcium Phosphate, Vitamin E Acetate, Zinc Gluconate, Ferric Orthophosphate, Niacinamide, Calcium Pantothenate, Manganese Sulfate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Ribioflavin, Thiamin, Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Chromium Chloride, Biotin, Sodium Molybdate, Potassium Iodide, Phylloquinone (Vitamin K1), Sodium Selenite, Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12), Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) (Sweetened with a Nontritive Sweetener) 

 The lower carb shakes are made with calcium caseinate, is manufactured and derived from skim milk.  Calcium Caseinate protein is extracted from casein through acidification, which in turn, provides you with a slow digesting protein.  This slow digesting time leads to anti-catabolic properties and gives you a feeling of being fuller longer. 

Fuller longer.  A good thing!

The Slim-Fast site is packed with tools and information to help you out on your path --

There are items and tools in there that with or without the product.  Basically, Slim-fast is about replacing two meals a day.  I'll leave it to you to read about the plan on their site, because it's individual as to your needs and if you've had weight loss surgery it's even more your choice as to what you do with the products. 

For me?  I'd hit the Lower carb vanilla, once or twice a day, instead of some of the other things I might grab that are things I Don't Think About.

Do you wanna WOW this winter?  Give Slimfast a try.  (The realization that I am getting on a CRUISE SHIP in just a few months. OH. MY. PROTEIN SHAKES.)
