No, drinking my meals does not satisfy my hunger

I used it years ago and it left me hungry. Now I will make a smoothie with fresh or frozen fruit qn either yogurt or,almond milk. This leaves me satisfied until the next meal

Keep on track

I use nutritionally-complete VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) shakes
In Australia this includes Optifast and Optislim.
I have not tried Celebrityslim or Fatblaster
Generally speaking I start each day with a 500 ml hot drink containing 1 sachet of Optislim, 1 tablespoon each of psyllium husk, instant coffee, glutamine powder, gelatin powder, stirred to dissolve and topped up with 1/3rd cup of milk.
Lunch is light maybe a salad sandwich
Dinner is quite often a frozen weight-watchers meal.
on rare occasions I may have a handful of nuts as a snack
This regime does not cause me to be hungry and it is possible to lose large amounts of weight, when stuck to.

The reason I take psyllium, glutamine and gelatine is for gut health. The psyllium also forms a gel in the stomach which decreases appetite and also serves as a slow-release of nutrients over a period of several hours.
If you require any more info please feel free to message me

Cheers Richard

I also do not think it is effective. I participated in a clinical trial that asked us to use it for one meal a day, but not the only food. I also don't believe it encourages healthy eating habits long term. It could help jump start a short term change, but I never felt satisfied when I tried it. I like more variety in taste and texture.

In my personal opinion, no. Although SlimFast has been around for decades,it is still in that fad vein. While it may help initially, it is not sustainable for the long term.

Is anyone doing slim fast? Is the protein and fiber worth the extra fat?

I'M WORTH IT!!!
