SLIMFAST 321 PLAN

My SlimFast 321 Plan Experience
For seven days I was able to trial the Slim-Fast 3.2.1 plan, initially I started this seven day trial two and a half weeks ago but unfortunately was sent products I couldn't use, banana and mocha (caffeine) in which I am allergic to. So my initial trial ended three days in, but honestly hand on heart can say I lost 1lbs in three days.

So your probably wondering how it all works. To break it down in a simple form you are able to eat six small meals a day this consists of; three snacks, two meal bars or shakes and one meal. One of your meals resulting in a low 600 calorie controlled meal of your choice and the others using the Slim-Fast products. The Slim-Fast 3.2.1 plan is as simple as 1.2.3.

This week on Monday saw the return of my seven day trial, I was kindly sent a new batch of products the Friday before with shakes/powders,bars and snacks that I was able to consume. Although it was all going fairly well I forgot to mention I was allergic to nuts therefore unable to use some of the meal bars which was also the same for the chocolate bars.

The battle is always the start of the process working out and planning exactly what you are eating, and sticking to it when there is so much temptation around. Every day I was able to consume my 600 calorie meal (Which I can go into at a later date if requested). I found this is what I most looked forward to, as after day four of the same regime it started to become a little repetitive.

A big thing for me is trying to lose weight with my condition, hypothyroidism slows my metabolic rate right down to the point it is hard to digest and break down food. The 3.2.1 plan is a good way to consume food in smaller meals in order to help me digest with my hypo but I believe others may find the plan slightly repetitive and possibly this is how people drop off the programme.
I have plenty of praise towards the plan my only main negative being that because I have a condition, I am a fussy eater and have many allergies it is harder to find solutions and prep and plan everyday. The only other slight change I had to make was I had no time to have six small meals within the day (meals and snacks), which had to be dropped down to five (two shakes or meal bar, one main meal and two snacks). With my seven day process I lost another pound.

LIKES
I grew very fond of the shakes as it was very easy to pack shakes and snacks when on the go, the taste is better than I expected and I can see myself using the shakes and snacks in the future as they are low calorie and agreed with me 100%. The shakes keep you full as a replacement and are tasty and keeps you going through the morning, my favourite being the summer strawberry shake and my favourite snack the bbq corn-chips. Even after my trial ends today I will continue to purchase the shakes and snacks.

DISLIKES
I wasn't very keen on the meal replacement bars, I found these to have no flavour and when I had planned to eat this during the day I wasn't looking forward to that particular meal, in my opinion every meal should be tasty and nutritious. If there was another alternative or maybe even a new formula or flavour it possibly could have been a better experience for me. Secondly with my hypo it never gave me the weight loss I expected in the week compared to other results I have seen. After losing a pound whether just luck previously or with the help of Slim-Fast, I found my results was not the same or anywhere near the results you hear of other people during their 3.2.1 experience. This is not necessarily Slim-Fast's fault as my hypothyroidism in regards to weight loss may need better tailoring in regards to a programme diet and healthy lifestyle living.

SPECIAL THANKS
Special thank you to Natalie a complete an utter star at Slim-Fast who kept me in the loop in regards to products, sent me out new products as soon as she could and was just generally very patient and friendly to work with.

Overall my experience with Slim-Fast was insightful, for those who are interested to try Slim-Fast I would definitely say give it a try as you may just like it and it could work out for you. But be sure to make sure you can plan ahead all the time and dedication is key. For me the plan is not exactly what I like but as stated before I will continue to buy products from the brand to tailor my own weight loss journey and healthy lifestyle.
