Is it just banana or are other flavours included in the offer?
#2
is it actually the high protein stuff as well?
#3
I work in savers, its not the high protein stuff.

There are some other flavours available, cant remember though.

I think theres chocolate and vanilla.
Although those flavours may just be left over stock. You just need to check.

Of course it does!! You just have to restrain from eating anything else as well:-D

Of course not. Can't believe any one still buys this ****.

If you lose weight while on slimfast it's because you are consuming fewer calories, something that can be acheived by...err...eating fewer calories or working out.

Then it does work.

Of course conservation of energy can't be circumvented - that's not the point. Diets that do work, do so because people find them easy to adhere to. And if some people find slimfast to be so, then they categorically work.

Meal replacement is nothing new. Some dieters just find that sort of thing easier (convenience, and simple).

Wouldn't get my personal vote, because I suspect long-term adherence isn't great - but that's likely with any sort of calorie-restriction, really.

Things like slimfast mean people don't have to learn about calories -- unless someone plans to stay on slimfast their entire life, or actually learn about the only sensible way to lose weight long term and just use it as a 'booster' to get them started, as soon as they come off it they weight will go back on.

I'm not trying to be a buggar about it, just offer my advice.

Things like slimfast are complete nonsense and will do more harm that good long term.

Eat a nice bowl of wheetabix, some wholemeal toast or a lean mean sandwhich instead of your slimfast 'meal' and you'll achieve the same thing, and it's actually sustainable long term :)

In fairness, many diets or plans don't directly focus on calories.

There's no sense simply focussing on MRPs as if they're some pariah.

Serial dieters don't really want to hear the whole "Eat Less" / "Eat Less, Do More" thing. Just because a diet book only needs to contain those two words "Eat Less", I hardly think it would be destined for the bestseller lists.

There's more to people and dieting than the nuts and bolts of the pure chemistry involved. Behaviourism is a huge part of how dieting succeeds or otherwise.

Would it make sense for VLCDs to be used long term?

Long term adherence for practically all (if not all) diets and weight loss schemes is abysmal.

So don't focus on one assumed pariah. There's perspective to consider.

That's nothing exclusive to MRPs.

The nuts and bolts are easy, it's the behaviour that's difficult to reprogram. And the masses aren't going to appreciate the difficult, "it takes effort" answer. They like to feel special, like it's not really their fault, like there's some gimmick or scheme that will make it all better.

And I recognise that - but the nuts and bolts are simple. It's the behaviour and re-education that's difficult. That's why I find it hard to see the pariah in MRPs compared with many other weight-loss scheme.

They mostly seem to focus on what people are drawn to - results, as opposed to what makes long-term difference - effort and lifestyle change.

I'm not buying it. Sure, I see them (like other MRPs) to be easy targets to be snobbish about. But at the end of the day, VLCD schemes are all typically meant for largely short-term usage. I'm just not buying that they are worse than countless other diets or schemes touting results for weight loss - quite simply they're not. The problem is behaviour, not the nuts and bolts.

When we assume the problem is the nuts and bolts, it misses the woods for the trees.

MRPs like slimfast help many in terms of convenience and simplicity. Some people struggle with time constraints with healthier options, due to busy lifestyles. Having something simple and easy can help with key meals like breakfast, so that hunger doesn't set in, and less healthy / weight losing / maintaining options get consumed.

It doesn't help to focus on one product as a pariah, but rather it's better to understand the challenges for people, and how options (even ones that individually, we may not perceive as palatable) can be useful. Otherwise, those striving to lose weight, see the naysayers as simply pouring scorn from ivory towers.
