Check the ingredients on any "shake" you use. The fake sugars can make you feel funny. Aspartame, Sucrolose, Saccharine, Acesulfame Potassium. It's like adding poison to your diet. If you want a quick jumpstart to your diet, try the Eat Right for Your Bloodtype diet.

herbalife is a fun product I used it years ago . lost my last 20 pounds on it I had been stuck. Stuff is pricey if I remember right.these days I use spirutien.I usually get the vanilla because I can play the most with it. It makes a nice desert or fast to go meal. better them skipping . Good luck to you. I am sure you will find lots of helpful people here :)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

there are better products available at health food stores. I sometimes have a shake or a smoothie in the morning. I add frozen banana chunks and some fruit to it.But do not do it all the time. Thinking you need to change it up a bit.

You don't say which meal you're replacing with the Slimfast, or whether you eat a salad or fruit or yogurt or something else when you do the shake.

Slimfast has a LOT of sugar in it - it may be that you're getting hypoglycemic a few hours after you do the shake instead of eating a meal that has more fat, protein and fiber that will keep your blood sugar more stable for a longer period of time.

I think you've already discovered that your body is telling you "don't do this" when it comes to Slimfast - which shows you're listening to your body. And that's a GOOD thing!

In all honesty you should see this as a sign that this isn't the diet for you. Humans aren't designed to "drink" their calories and Slim Fast is a very low calorie weight loss program which can cause you to feel yucky while on it. Your bad feelings can be cause by calorie deficit that's TOO big, your body is being deprived of certain nutrients, you could have an allergy/intolerance to something you're consuming - there's lots of reasons why this could be happening. However, I really think you can find results on other programs that will emphasize a healthy calorie intake of a wide variety of foods that won't leave you feeling yucky. If you want any recommendations, I'd be happy to point you in the right direction.

Hi all!
I've tried the Slim Fast diet several times and have had pretty good results as far as weight loss goes but after about 3 weeks of drinking one shake a day I always start to feel "funny" and I end up having to quit. Does anyone else experience negative side effects from the Slim Fast shake diet? Or can anyone share some info on possible reasons why the shakes would be making me feel bad? I'd appreciate ANY advice on this!

Thanks!
