How long do you have to be on slimfast to see the results?

I started the program yesterday - looking fwd to lose 30 - 40 pounds,,,'
taking 2 shakes, 3 snack bars and one meal about 400 - 500 calories...

also work out 45 minutes 3 times a week...as I am a working mom of 2 children who are under 5 years...

I am hoping to see results soon and usually my diet is healthy - as a vegetarian I try my best to eat less carbs...

Have you been on this diet?? - have you lost weight?? how long did it take?
were you able to keep it off??


Thanks.

slimfast

when I first started on my weight loss journey here at Peertrainer, I did some Slimfast shakes at first. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing... I needed some alternative to the deep fried fast food I was eating.

I lost 14 pounds in my first month (I was obese, and easier to lose weight the heavier you are... once in "normal" weight range, it is definitely more challenging... for me, anyway...)

It sounds like you are really busy, a working mom with two little ones under 5 years!! Good for you to make yourself a priority!! The shakes are easy in the beginning - especially when you are pressed for time.

But after a while, once you get your bearings about you, I'd strongly suggest trying to move away from Slimfast and start freezing healthy homemade meals ahead of time or using your crockpot more... stock your fridge with the healthy foods that are ready to go (salads, soups, beans, rice, prewashed veggies, etc.) This will take some effort and time (Sunday nights to have ready for the week ahead) but think of it as doing something for the future benefit of your children...

Best to you on your weight loss journey!!

Hi OP,

How much do you weigh? And how tall are you? If you are vegetarian, you probably aren't obese! That would be almost impossible!

The lower you caloric intake is now than it was on average before you started your diet will determine how fast you lose weight.

I know a lot of obese vegetarians. The two aren't mutually exclusive! One can be vegetarian and have a supremely non nutritive, fattening, and unhealthy diet.

^^ This (laughs)

My best friend from college is vegetarian, and obese. I also have vegan friends that are skinny fat. Oh, and friends that run marathons that are overweight. (sighs)

Oh yes you most certainly can be an obese vegetarian. Bread, pasta, rice, potatoes -- these are all plant foods but if you eat too much of them you will gain weight. Especially with butter, sauces and cheeses added. There are those who think all they have to do is not eat meat and that means they are vegetarian. They haven't yet come to the understanding that a true vegetarian diet is mostly vegetables and fruits with some nuts, seeds, beans, grains, and maybe eggs, fish, and/or milk, cheese, yogurt...
