Slimfast New Advanced Vitality Range & #SlimFastBreakfastClub Twitter Chat!

Posted on September 26, 2017

Hi Guys!

If you’re a regular reader you’ll know I’m a big fan of SlimFast – as someone that struggles with my weight I’ve found their products to be incredibly helpful when I decide to start shifting the pounds.

SlimFast have recently sent over some of their new products to try from their Advanced Vegan Vitality Range, which now includes Strawberry Kick flavour, as well as new Vegan options, Strawberry & Blueberry Burst and Intense Mint Chocolate. If you’re not familiar with the new Advanced Vegan Vitality range, it’s basically a brand new, enhanced and updated version of their classic powder meal replacement shakes…

Discover a holistic way to lose weight helping you to feel great on the inside and out. Our unique SlimFast Advanced Vitality shake recipe is made with selected ingredients to support your metabolism and reduce tiredness and fatigue – essential when losing weight and keeping it off. With no added sugar, high in protein and fibre and with 23 vitamins and minerals in every serving, it’s perfect whether you are on a diet or looking for a balanced meal alternative.

A few more things you should know about the Advanced Vegan Vitality range – firstly, you don’t add milk like you would with SlimFast’s original powder shakes, you just add cold water, making them even easier to make up when you’re out and about. You’d think this might deter from the flavour, but surprisingly it really doesn’t! (There are also have 4 other flavours that can be enjoyed with milk too). Also, they contain less calories than the original shakes, at only 220 calories per serving – net bad hey!

I’ve been trying out the Strawberry & Blueberry Burst flavour, as well as more recently the Intense Mint Chocolate flavour too. Both of these are vegan, and they both contain the same vitamins and benefits as the non-vegan options which is fantastic.

I’ve personally found the Strawberry & Blueberry Burst flavour to be my favourite – it’s very similar to the traditional Strawberry SlimFast but just feels a little extra. I love that the new Vitality range includes a load of added extras in terms of vitamins and minerals to give you more energy, and the texture also gets a thumbs up as it contains little chunks of dried fruit, which makes it more of a ‘meal’ than just a smooth milkshake.

On that note, of course you can always pimp your shakes by adding almost anything you like, to tailor make them to your taste. SlimFast recommend adding a handful of cacao nibs or frozen berries for an added boost, which adds less than 100 calories to your shake.

I’ll be co-hosting the SlimFast 3.2.1 Breakfast Club Twitter party from 9am to 9.30am on Wednesday 27th September where we’ll be chatting all things SlimFast including discussing their  new products, tips and general chat, and there will also be a prize for one lucky participant. Everyone is welcome, just follow the hashtag #SlimFastBreakfastClub from 9am and join in the fun!

SlimFast Advanced Vegan Vitality products are £14.99 per pack and available now at Tesco, and the rest of the range is available at Boots (currently buy one get one half price)

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

I’m Starting The #SlimFastChallenge!

Hi Guys!

Christmas had been and gone, as has the New Year now, and all we have left to show for it is decorations that need putting away, houses to clean and tidy, and, if you’re like me and you’ve rather over indulged across the festive period, you’re probably feeling bloated, heavy and just a bit gross too. So what better time to get on the wagon and start a proper health kick?

I’ve used SlimFast before, and I really get on with their plan and products, so I’m really excited (and SO ready right now) to get back on it and shift some pounds again! Conveniently for me, SlimFast have also launched a brand new new and free app (available on iOS or Android) which has all the tools, support and motivation you need in one place to aid you on your slimming journey.

I’ve recently downloaded it, and I’m really impressed so far! Once you’ve signed in to the app, it asks for your vital stats (height and weight) and from there you can choose your goals, wether it’s specifically weight loss, to increase fitness or anything else, this app has you covered. One of my favourite parts of the app is the Transformation GIF, allowing you to see the physical difference in your appearance as you lose weight, how awesome is that? I can’t wait to give it a try as I lose weight! You also have access to daily tips and advice, meal plans and meal ideas, and an exclusive, easy exercise programme.

So as of today, I’ve now started healthy eating, and I’ve cut out the junk, and later on this month I’ll also be taking part in the #SlimFastChallenge with some other lovely bloggers. So keep an eye out for Tweets with the #SlimFastChallenge hashtag and blog posts on my progress which will be coming up in the near future!

And lastly, if SlimFast sounds like it could be for you, or maybe you’re not sure and you’d like to find out more, make a note in your diary for Thursday 7th January at 3:30pm, where the one and only Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud (who just happens to be a SlimFast ambassador) will be heading up a Twitter chat, where you can ask any questions you may have, join in and chat with others (including me) and you could also win SlimFast a 7 day Starter Kit!

Why not download the app now and join me in the #SlimFastChallenge? WE CAN DO THIS!! xxx

The Slim Fast Blogger Challenge Results

Hi Guys!

It’s been a good few weeks since I started Slim Fast Challenge, and actually a little while now since I finished, so I thought it was about time I gave you a bit of an update and let you know how I got on with the products!

Just to recap, for two weeks I took part in the Slim Fast 3.2.1 plan. This involves eating up to six times a day, including three snacks, two meal replacement products and one balanced evening meal – hence the name 3.2.1. Slim Fast have a massive range of products on offer including chocolate snack bars and savoury tortillas and pretzels. I actually loved all of the snacks available, there wasn’t one that I didn’t like! For meal replacements options, Slim Fast have ready made milkshakes as well as powder shakes that you mix yourself, as well as different flavour meal bars.

Again, I loved the ready made milkshakes, the banana, vanilla and strawberry ones were especially tasty. The meal bars were great too – though it would be nice to see some savoury options available in this range. Overall I love the convenience of Slim Fast – there’s no counting calories or points like you get with other diets, this is just super straightforward, and it will be especially suited to those with a busy lifestyle as there’s no preparation involved (except for the powder shakes) I found it so handy that I could just grab a meal bar or ready made shake from the fridge and head off to work!

Apart from finding this diet easy to follow, it’s also very effective – as long as you stick to the rules. As with any diet regime really, if you break the rules, you can’t expect to see the best results. Well I started off really well, then had a couple of, erm ‘blips’, then ended up having a couple of days off the diet for my birthday. so I could have done a lot better to be honest. I know my weight fluctuated throughout this but I still ended up losing three pounds over all! I know this isn’t amazing but it still makes me feel positive, and I know if I’d have stuck to the plan I’d have easily lost more weight.

I find it’s easier to stick to a diet if you have a set routine, but if you are on the go and have lots of events coming up – like I do this month, two hen parties and two weddings actually! It does make things harder but I’m just going to try to make better decisions with my food choices. It’s so easy to over indulge, especially if it’s what you’re used to as I am. I think being on the Slim Fast plan has made me realise I can eat healthily with not much effort, and see results quite quickly which is fantastic. I’m definitely going to start the 3.2.1 plan again soon and stick to my guns this time. I’ll let you know how I get on!

I’m now off to inflate the Thomas paddling pool, set the brolly up and spend some time in the garden with my boy! I hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine! xxx

The Slim Fast Blogger Challenge

Hi Guys!

Ok so I’ve been on the wagon and off the wagon of late when it comes to my diet. Sometimes I’ve been really good, and others, well not so much. I started off really well then my anxiety flared up again, and apart from making my life difficult, it always seems to make me quite emotional and the urge to eat my worries away stronger than ever. In the last week or so I’ve started to feel so much better though, and while I’m in this positive mental zone I’m going to make the most of it and start the blogger #SlimFastChallenge!

The challenge is a 14-day trial of Slim Fast products following their 3.2.1 Plan – which includes meal replacement bars, convenient ready-to-drink shakes, meal replacement powders (so you can get creative with flavours at home) and plenty of snacks. So basically with the 3-2-1 plan you can enjoy three snacks, two meal replacement products and one balanced (600cal) meal a day, with the aim that you will gradually lose weight. Slim Fast also have lots of tasty recipes on their site to try out, to give you inspiration for your third meal of the day.

I love the fact that you can eat up to six times a day with this plan! And the Heavenly Chocolate Delight Snack Bars look amazing! Slim Fast give you the option to Create your own plan by picking the flavours you love or download their 7 day diet plan where you’ll find a week’s worth of meals and snacks planned out for you.

It’s so simple to follow, there’s no points system or calorie counting with these products – which really appeals to me. The idea is once you reach your goal weight, you can replace one meal with a meal replacement product (instead of two) to help maintain your new weight.

I’ve just started today having a shake for breakfast and lunch, and a banana for a snack and I’m feeling good! I half expected to be hungry but I’m not at all! Fingers crossed the 3.2.1 plan will work for me and help me shift some weight! Keep your eye out for my update post in a couple of weeks’ time! xxx
