Scan diet works!

Hi everyone...well i needed info on a protein shake diet, i got it..then i tried scan diet! I think it was mentioned here before but i wanted to let you all know that it does truly work! I've been on it for 1 week and have lost almost 10 pounds!! The shakes arent that bad-i have the chocolate ones. I was surprised because i hate slim fast! Well i hope this can help some of you out! =)

Re: Scan diet works!

Is that just water weight? That seems like an awful bunch of weight to lose in just one week.

Re: Scan diet works!

That's GREAT! Good for you. Do you only do shakes or is there a food program involved?

Thanks. Lynn

Re: Scan diet works!

What is your regime with the scan diet? Do you eat any food, or just the shakes? I have been doing slimfast and lean cuisine meals for 3 weeks, and have seemed to have hit a plateau. I work out with weights and cardio. Does anyone have any suggestions? And keep up with the good work with the scan diet!!!!!

Re: Scan diet works!

Is Scan Diet, the meal replacement shakes from GNC? I went there a couple weeks ago to buy a multi-vitamin and the guy behind the counter gave me a couple packets of it, to try it out. I tried the strawberry flavor and it was really good, but didn't think twice about buying it, because I hadn't really heard of anyone using it. Please post, and let us all know how often you take it, and whatever else you're eating, along with if you excercise and how much. I'm very interested... also what's you're age/height/weight. I'm 5'6 146lbs and have lost 30 pounds on Weight Watchers but I would like to add a protein shake to my diet because I don't think I'm not having enough.

Re: Scan diet works!

I just saw this on Rosie O'Donnell's show. Deidre Hall from one of the soap operas was her guest and they talked about the Scan Diet and the new protein bars. Go to the Scan Diet web site. I might try the protein bars if it's not loaded w/sugar.

Re: Scan diet works!

hi everyone! just to let you all know im 20 years old, 5'6 and 220 pounds..imma chunker!! lol

brandi04:no its not just water wieght i drink plenty of water every day..i dont think this diet would be successful without it ;]

LynnKBF,Swiggs,Andreeny:there are 3 different ways to go with this diet. There is 'Attack','Balance' and 'Control'. Each have different meal plans. I have chosen to go on the 'Attack' plan. With this plan I have 5 to 6 shakes a day with any fruits and vegetables I want. I admit this 'Attack' plan is a little hard to get used to but the shakes really get me full! I have also been walking one mile a day with wieghts and I'm sure this boosts my wieght loss! I hope this answered some questions you might have had. Good Luck! =)

Re: Scan diet works!

About how much does this product cost, and how long does it last?
Can you buy it at walmart or do you have to order it from the internet?

Re: Scan diet works!

I would like to try a liquid type of diet but I am allergic to milk. Is this something that you mix yourself, if so then maybe I can use soy milk.

Re: Scan diet works!

I bought some over the weekend...the bars are alright but the soy in them tastes kind of gross. The shakes are DISGUSTING! I can't even drink them, too thick and full of soy. YUCK! They taste absolutely horrible to me. The bars are only ok, not good by any means. Don't know if I can do this diet or not because I don't like the taste. I do like Slim Fast but it doesn't seem to work. I am 5'10" and 135, only want to lose about ten pounds.

Vegasgirl:
5ft10 and 135lbs? You must be fairly young still if you want to be 5ft10 and 125lbs. I'm 5ft4 and my ideal goal if 130-135lbs! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Now, my realistic goal is 150lbs, so...even that would make me happy. I'm almsot 32, have had 2 children 8 years apart, and am right around 200lbs. Just glad that most days at least I don't LOOK that bad or I'd have to do something drastic <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

Re: Scan diet works!

SweetestZ:
I just checked out the website, and it says it's actually mixed with water <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Hmmm...looks like everyone in this thread seems to be from the States. I wonder how much this stuff costs up here in Canada. I know it said $29.99 for 15 individually packaged servings of the shake powder, and 18 servings in a can that you measure out yourself I think. I'll have to check with my GNC I guess...sounds interesting if it doesn't cost a fortune.

Re: Scan diet works!

The most likely reason for your 10 lb loss ThickyThickGirl is that indeed you are over 200+ lbs.

And it is possible to lose 1% of your weight in fat a week. But also your switching your body over from--what I assume to be--a not so healthy life style, so your body is reacting well.

It will slow down though and become more "normal" soon though, so don't give up when it happens.
