Slim-Fast Diet Review

Slim-Fast offers a range of meal replacement diet products and claims that you can lose 10% of your body weight in six months by following their weight loss plan. According to the official Slim-Fast website all Slim-Fast products are formulated with a special blend of protein, fiber and good fats to keep away the food cravings for up to 4 hours.

How does the Slim-Fast Diet really work then? The fundamental approach to helping you lose weight is really simple and has been proven to work over and over. If you control your food portions and your calorie intake, you will automatically lose weight. When you replace your normal meals with prepackaged weight loss products, your portion sizes are automatically taken care of without any effort on your part. The formulation of the Slim-Fast meal replacements also helps to keep you feeling satisfied for longer by the carefully balancing of protein, fat and carbohydrates.

The Slim-Fast weight loss plan suggests you consume six small meals or snacks per day, of which at least 2 meals and one snack must be replaced by a Slim-Fast weight loss product on a daily basis. For the remainder of the meals and snacks you can eat whatever you want, but it is strongly suggested that you stick to lean protein, fruit and vegetables. Not only will you lose weight faster, but you will also start cultivating good and healthy eating habits.

Meal replacement formulations have been improved tremendously over the past few decades and meal replacement as a weight loss strategy has been proven to be very effective and easy to apply. Gone are the days where meal replacements are frowned upon by dietitians and scientists as an unhealthy approach to weight loss. New formulations of the meal replacement products offer consumers the benefit of all the necessary nutrients in very convenient and tasty products.

FDA Warns Against Three More Weight Loss Pills

The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) is always busy evaluating and testing weight loss products in an ongoing battle to clear the store shelves and on-line stores of dangerous diet pills and weight loss supplements. On 22 December 2008, the FDA issued a press release containing 28 weight loss products to avoid. On the 8th of January 2009, the FDA expanded the list of tainted weight loss products to include 41 more dangerous weight loss pills. The last update to this list (now containing 72 products) was done on March 20, 2009 via press release. The FDA will continue to update this list on an ongoing basis.

New products are launched into this largely unregulated market on a daily basis, and it is obvious that there is no way the FDA will ever be able to test all the weight loss products on offer. This does not mean all diet pills commercially available are unsafe and / or ineffective. On the contrary, many of them can actually help you lose weight faster, but…..it is of the utmost importance that you make informed decisions when deciding to try new weight loss products. It is absolutely crucial to take responsibility for looking after your own health, so do not rely solely on FDA warning lists and double check promises made by vendors online. The only way to make informed decisions about weight loss pills is to understand which ingredients are contained in products you consider using, and then to explore the potential impact of these ingredients on your health.

Do your research on your next weight loss product thoroughly making use of the internet and any other sources of information you may have access too, for example your local pharmacist. With the overload of information available on the internet it is not always so easy to distinguish between good and bad advice, so choose a few websites (avoid those selling one product or product range) you can trust to help you make sense of the information out there. And get a second opinion every now and then just to make sure these sites are still trustworthy. If you are unable to find the necessary information, put in a request to one of your favorite sites to investigate the product for you, or choose something else that you can find information on.
