Over the summer I reviewed Slim Fast and spent two weeks following the plan, losing 6lb in two weeks. Since then I have followed a lot of the Slim Fast principles to keep the weight off and even lose a few more pounds too.
My main criticism of the Slim Fast products had been their sugar content and general sweetness. That and the fact that it’s hard to have a balanced diet whilst on the plan as the products were all quite ‘snack’ based rather than meals. It was these things that made me get excited when I heard that they were relaunching their products with a great fresh new look and also making a 30% sugar reduction in the powders and ready-to-drink shakes.
On top of this Slim Fast were introducing a 7 Day Starter Kit to give dieters everything they need to help them through those first 7 days – the ones that I personally found most challenging. I was sent a 7 Day Starter Kit to review and I couldn’t wait to learn more.
The 7 Day Starter Kit contains enough snacks, shakes and meal replacement bars for 7 days as well as a handy meal plan and information guide that you can follow to create your under 600kcal evening meals too. If I was starting on Slim Fast having never been on the plan previously I would love the 7 Day Starter Kit, it really makes the transition into a new diet plan smooth and easy.
My only slight niggle with the 7 Day Starter Kit is that you can’t tailor the products inside to your preferences. For example, the box includes two Cafe Latte Shakes and I am not keen on anything coffee flavoured – I would rather have had any other flavour instead. Aside from that I think the Slim Fast 7 Day Starter Kit is a great addition to the range and an easy way to start a diet plan that really works. It’s also well priced too making the Slim Fast 3-2-1 plan affordable for everyone.
The Slim Fast 7 Day Starter Box has an RRP of £31.78
