Shake It Up With Skin Fast Plan

Slim-Fast is a popular weight-loss program that replaces dieters' meals with shakes, soups, pasta and bars. A brand owned by Unilever, Slim-Fast is in the business for about 25 years. Their shakes were initially condemned for carrying too much sugar, which is why they now use artificial sweeteners instead.

As with other weight loss programs, Slim-Fast relies on the formula of portion control, eating the right things, regular exercise and support. On this program, dieters lose 10% of their body weight in six months. The program is backed by scientific research and their support is good, as expected from a well-established company.

Diet plan:
Two major meals of the day need to be replaced with Slim-Fast products. One meal should be your own - comprising of lean protein (like chicken breast without the skin, or fish), carbohydrates (like baked potato or brown rice), fruit and lots of vegetables.

Other than these three meals, you can have "sensible" snacks which are low in fats. Slim-Fast snacks (bars) are also available.

A sample plan:
Slim-Fast shake
1 slice French toast

Slim-Fast shake
Roast beef sandwich (1 slice whole wheat bread, 2 oz. roast beef, lettuce, tomato)

Chicken grill (4 oz. grilled skinless chicken breast, 1 baked potato with 2 tbsp fat-free sour cream, 1 cup steamed broccoli with 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese)

Fruits (grapes, apple, melon), Slim-Fast snack bars, 1 slice low fat pound cake

Nutrition facts:
A typical Slim-Fast shake contains:
* 5 grams fat

Slim-Fast helps reduce weight with the time-tested formula of portion control, controlling fats and starches, and regular exercise. 10% reduction of body weight in six months, at a rate of one to two pounds per week, is safe and in agreement with government guidelines.
