To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you are looking to lose weight in a hurry and stay healthy, try this with Drs blessings. I replaced breakfast and dinner with these drinks and had a reasonable lunch, no carbs. Have a hot tea in evening I lost 70 lbs, went from 250 to 180 in six months and I never felt better.
While the shake was good and is helping me lose weight, one of the sealed bottles was moldy upon opening. Tried returning but requires you to send the drinks back. I through out the moldy one obviously and had already used Most of them. I’m now opening every bottle w concern about if mold will be found.
I actually like this particular product... but I ordered a few cases from Amazon for convenience, and each shake has had pieces of gelatin-like clumps in it! I haven’t had this problem with bottles that I’ve purchased at stores... so not sure why this is the case. I refrigerate them and shake them very well. But... ew... I can drink about a third of the bottle before it’s just too lumpy. I’m dreading the 2 cases that I have left.
I‘m not big on writing reviews but omg I need to get this out of my system. Just opened a bottle of strawberry slim fast and forced it down. Sickening. The stuff smells like the plastic bottle it comes in, tastes like plastic until you get to the aftertaste... When was your last bout of stomach flu? Remember that bitter bile taste after throwing up the tenth time? Well, it can be yours after just one sip of this stuff. My poor husband will get these for lunch. Btw, I’m not an otherwise person. I have no issue with any of the Atkins shakes.
After sustaining a concussion and being laid up, I noticed my weight creeping up from inactivity. I was familiar with the Original Slim Fast but was pleased to discover this line of Advanced Nutrition with 20 grams of protein. The Advanced Nutrition shakes taste great and are very filling not to mention loaded with vitamin and minerals. This is my second order. It really is helping me control my weight and appetite until I can add exercise again. I also plan to use these even after I get back to my exercise routine because I have lost weight already. Hubby likes the Energy Advanced Nutrition shakes which contains the equivalent of a cup of coffee. I am caffeine sensitive so these work perfect for me. Highly recommended.
Slim Fast with 20g of protein is awesome.I don't think it's too thick like some people. I love it icy cold though and sometimes put the bottle in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. I am very overweight. I have made up my own diet that I believe will get me fast results and one I can live with. I am having 2 or 3 slim fasts a day and 2-3 8 oz bottles of V8. The Slim Fast stops my craving for sweets, and V8 stops my craving for something salty. I'll update later to let you know if it's working. So far so good. One week down.
I have now ordered this 8 times over the past two months. I drink them for breakfast and lunch, and then eat a totally normal meal. I find that the advanced protein formula does keep me fuller longer (2.5-3 hours), and then I have a fiber-rich snack (otherwise you’ll have issues. Trust me.) So far with this method, I have lost 30 lbs in 2 months. It works for me, but I recognize everyone is unique and it might not work for them. As far as the other reviews about gelatin in the shake, I find that if I don’t shake my drink prior to opening that I have those a little, but it’s not really an issue for me. The mold mentioned in another review has never happened to me and I have consumed nearly 100 of these at this point, but I do make sure to check every time I open a bottle. The taste is great in my opinion, not chalky at all, and gives me the chocolate I need to keep my sweet tooth cravings at bay. All in all, 5-star product.
I have digestive problems and do not eat much protein. I started using Slim Fast Advanced in March to increase my protein intake. I like the taste and the variety of flavors. One drink replaces a meal for me. Being a diabetic, I also like that it only has 1 gram of sugar. I have lost a few pounds since starting this drink but I mostly use it for nutrition not just to lose weight.
