If you are regular reader of my blog than you would know that I recently took part in the
Now that I have completed the challenge I am here to tell you how I got on
and my likes and dislikes regarding the challenge.
Well I am disappointed to tell you that over the two weeks I didn't loose any weight.
I feel there are a few reasons as to why this challenge didn't work for me which I'll talk about in the
Pros and Cons section of this post.
Here is short reminder on what the challenge is all about:
The slimfast plan is a meal replacement plan which includes low calorie snacks and a healthy meal a day.
The plan is called the 3, 2, 1 plan which means that you have 3 low calorie snacks a day, 2 meal replacement bars or shakes and then a healthy 600 calorie meal.
This can include the range of slimfast snacks and or healthy options such as fruit or veg.
The plan is flexible and is made to loose weight in an easy way.
So here are my Pro's and Con's with regards to the #SlimFastChallenge
- It is such an easy plan to follow as you don't have to worry about what you are eating
other than planning your 600 calorie evening meal.
- The shakes and snacks all taste pretty good and are great if
you have a sweet tooth.
- The plan is convenient for busy people like myself as you can just grab a bar or shake and go.
It's also great as I can just carry the bars in my bag for when I am out and about and a pre made up
shake or meal bar is ideal for when I am in a rush and don't really have time to eat much.
- I didn't find it super filling so really struggled to actually stick to the plan and found myself
having more than three snacks a day. I also found myself thinking of food alot of the time due to hunger.
- High sugar content
One of my main criticisms of the plan is that it has such a high sugar content.
When if you are like me and have a sweet tooth you need to be cutting down.
I also mentioned in my last slimfast post that I have PCOS and I do wonder if by having PCOS it also
was a factor of why I didn't loose any weight.
I think it could be because my body doesn't take to sugar very well and tends to hinder my weight loss.
If anything has come from taking part in this challenge it would have to be that I now know that for me the best way for me to loose weight would be to stick to a healthy diet with loads of fruit and veg.
I feel that the #SlimFastChallenge can work for some people as I have seen other bloggers
have amazing results but it just turns out it wasn't for me.
