Slim-Fast has been around for many years.
I first tried it almost 25 years ago when all that was available was the powder that was added to milk to make a shake.
From what I remember, it was pleasantly tasting, and I did loose weight.
But like most people who are constantly fighting the weight issue, it didn't stay off.
I have been up and down with the weight over the years, and at this point in my life, as long as I eat right and keep up with my exercise routine, I feel that is what is important.
But, sometimes, the urge to loose weight comes back around, especially at this time of the year when a few extra pounds are sure to find their way to my hips.
So when I received a coupon in the mail to try the new Slim-Fast 3-2-1 Plan, I thought I would give it a shot.
I purchased the Chocolate shake drink, and was surprised to see they were already premixed and ready to use.
That certainly makes it much easier than the powders I used to use.
The 3-2-1 Plan includes eating three of the Slim-Fast delicious snack bars, fruit, nuts, or veggies.
Two of the shakes or meal bars are also consumed.
And by eating one 500 calorie balanced meal that includes half a plate of veggies, and a quarter each of protein and grains, the food consumed provides the necessary nourishment for the day.
I found my Slim-Fast 3-2-1 products in my grocery store, but they are also available at Wal-Mart and Target and online at Amazon.com.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the extra holiday goodies won't find their way to my hips with this diet plan.
