I'm far from claiming that I'm an expert at weight loss, but if this past year has taught me anything, it's that portion control and the amount that I eat directly determine whether or not the pounds come off.
That's not to say that exercise isn't a factor, but for me, it's all about the food (and eating too much of it).
And one name that knows all about what it takes to help you lose weight and feel great is none other than Slim·Fast, particularly with their new on-the-go bottles and the Slim·Fast 3·2·1 Plan.
After helping millions of people lose weight over the past 30 years, Slim·Fast knows a thing or two about shedding excess pounds. Their balanced and proven approach to weight loss is supported by more than 45 published, clinical studies and women everywhere have experienced the confidence of showing up at a big occasion or event looking and feeling great thanks to Slim·Fast.
Having recently launched its richest, creamiest, best-tasting shake ever packaged in a convenient 10-ounce on-the-go, resealable bottle, Slim·Fast has made their program even easier to follow. For anyone like me who used to drink their shakes out of the can, this bottle is a major upgrade! It looks great, is easy to hold, and the fact that I can screw the top back on at any point is extremely helpful.
Plus, as the bottle is designed to go everywhere – whether in a purse, car or gym bag – there's never any thought as to being able to enjoy Slim·Fast at home or while out and about. While each shake not only tastes delicious, the 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals leave you satisfied, providing up to four hours of hunger control.
Available in five yummy flavors, there is sure to be at least one that your taste buds will enjoy while you're drinking your way to a slimmer, healthier you:
- Creamy Milk Chocolate
- Cappuccino Delight
- French Vanilla
- Rich Chocolate Royale
- Strawberries N’ Cream
As well as being great on their own, the all-new Slim·Fast shakes are a part of the Slim·Fast 3·2·1 Plan, a proven method to meet weight-loss goals quickly and conveniently.
Consisting of three nourishing snacks like Slim·Fast 100-calorie snack bars, nuts, fruits and/or veggies, two Slim·Fast shakes or meal bars, and one 500-calorie balanced meal per day, the Slim·Fast 3·2·1 Plan lays everything out to make it easy for you to lose weight. Their website includes personal progress reports, tracking tools, meal plans and more – all you have to do is make the commitment!
This holiday season, let Slim·Fast shakes and the Slim·Fast 3·2·1 Plan help you stay in control and fill you up so that you won't be tempted to overeat. The shakes are available in the pharmacy sections of grocers and retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Target, Safeway and Kroger and online at Amazon.com in packs of four, eight or 20. You'll be all set to start off 2012 on your way to looking and feeling great!
And, thanks to their generosity, five people will be able to feel good about themselves right away with a little gift, because...
