I have posted before about my desire to lose weight and become more healthy. I have realized I am just going to have to buckle down, eat less, and exercise more to get the unwanted pounds off. There just aren’t any quick fixes. I have been drinking protein shakes once a day to help fill me up with protein and fiber so I don’t get as hungry. I recently had the chance to try one of Slim-Fast new 3-2-1 shakes to see how they taste!
The 3-2-1 plan consists of:
- 3 Snacks: Three nourishing snacks like a snack bars, fruit, nuts or veggies
- 2 Slim-Fast Shakes or Meal Bars per day
- 1 Balanced Meal: One balanced 500-calorie meal per day
This sounds like about what I have been doing on my own, except I have been reversing the 1 and 2 with one shake and 2 balance meals. But either way it seems like a reasonable way to lose weight without feeling deprived.
I tried one of the new shakes, which come in 5 flavors, Creamy Milk Chocolate, French Vanilla, Rich Chocolate Royale, Cappuccino Delight and Strawberries Nâ€™ Cream. I picked the Creamy Milk Chocolate to try, and it tasted very good. It is certainly easier to grab a shake from the refrigerator when I am in a hurry than to take the time to make my own! So if you are looking for a good way to keep those holiday pounds from adding up this Christmas check out the new flavors of Slim-Fast.
