    I just thought it was really delicious and drank two of em in a row! it was for breakfast too so I had nothing before that. My point here is that im wondering if that is dangerous...my mom said that I shouldnt drink it cause its not good if you are underweight or normal weight but its sooooo good and addictive!

    It's just a shake. Obviously you should also eat food during the day, and not just shakes, but it doesn't contain any drugs or harmful ingredients. Just keep a balanced diet and drink a shake if you like them. They can't hurt you.

    My husband drinks them to just for the taste. He really likes them and he does not need to loose any weight. He has been drinking one or two every morning for his breakfast for quite some time.If you are eating a balanced diet the shakes should not bother you at all.

    I don't drink the Slim Fast shakes, but I've been told they contain actual sugar. You could be taking in alot of sugar everyday if you drink so many of them. Sugar can cause weight gain and take a person in the opposite direction of weight loss.

    Have you tried the Atkins Advantage brand of drink? They contain no sugar and are very delicious and satisfying.

    I think slimfast cans are very healthy, i believe they have somewhere around 150 calories in each can. I would definently not drink more than 2 in any day because it could cause you to start loosing weight unhealthily due to you intaking such a small amount of calories each day. Enjoy em for breakfast and eat well the rest of the day! remember those 300 or so calories from the two cans is only a fraction of the 2000 you need to maintain your weight!

    Taking in more than two of them would not cause to losing weight unhealthily, provided you took in a healthy amount of calories during the day.

    According to my nutritionist, you can safely lose 1-2 pounds per week. Anything more than that and you lose muscle, any muscle from everywhere(your heart, lungs, ect. as your body uses it for fuel and is nondiscriminate about where it gets it from). 1200 to 1500 calories is the best caloric intake to safely lose weight in conjunction with at least 3 aerobic and weight training sessions per week. She said you should never go below 1200 calories unless you are under a doctors supervision.

    Here's a question. A slim-fast shake is 180 calories. Usually for breakfast i eat a bowl of cereal which is about 160. Is it worth the extra 20 calories if i eat normally the rest of the day? (not slim-fast) or do i have to eat a bunch of slimfast items to see results?

    The thing here is that you assume you actually have to have slim-fast products to see results, which you do not.

    so drinking a slimfast shake which contains 180 cals would have the same effect of my diet if i had, say, a cup of pretzels containing 180 cals?

    I'm not an expert on slimfast products, so I could be wrong, but I'm going with yes.
