Common Questions and Answers about Slim fast meal substitute


179055 tn?1189759429 Hi All! I have some optima slim fast drinks that I bought of course BEFORE being preg. I was going to drink them just for nutritional value but was nervous in doing so as I relate them to diet drinks. I did email the company and they said they have NO dietary ingredients in them like in sweet n low, they said they are safe to consume even while preg, but of course they were concerned thinking I was dieting. Anyhow, has anyone else drank them? Should I be concerned at all?
Avatar f tn I've tried Slim Fast, South Beach, Adkins, Slim Quick, AcaiSlim and a colon cleanse. I've eaten small meals every four hours to speed up my metabolism and exercised until I literally collapsed. I joined national a wt loss group and worked with a personal trainer for months. They refunded my money and the trainer told me that he couldn't understand it. The harder we exercised and the less I ate, the more I gained. Even when I was sick and did not eat for two weeks, I gained 22 lbs.
Avatar n tn I need help with a simple, healthy eating plan and {{{{how many calories I should consume each day?}}} I'm thinking of going on slim fast or the Kellogg's Special K-cereal diet for about 2 or 3 weeks to jump start weight loss, have they worked for anyone? Thaks for any suggestions.
Avatar n tn mainly diarrhea, especially after a very fatty meal. Most don't have it; those that do can usually control it easily. Nothing is 100% in medicine, however. The only option to surgery is no surgery; a stone that size will not dissolve. It's possible he could control attacks with diet; but many people have attacks no matter what they eat. The odds of a 15 year old who's already had an attack making it through with no more are pretty slim." Followup with your personal physician is essential.

I had a large dinner salad with grilled chicken on top plus 6 tortilla chips with salsa for dinner. Wed I did not eat at all. Thursday evening at dinner time ( even though I didn't feel hungry) I had Hawaiian Chicken, baked potato, and steamed broccoli for dinner. Friday I had the same thing for dinner as I had on Thursday. And tonight (Sat.
Avatar n tn I just received my slim ball "junk mail" today 5/28/08. I was so eager to order it, I just picked up the phone and called them, but my husband stopped me mid order. He told me to google the complany. Which I did and got nothing, but a bunch of blogs. From what I can tell they did a mass mailing sometime in April of this year. From all of the blogs I have read, most have received the flyer with in the last 2 months. I'm now glad my husband stopped me.
Avatar n tn whatever! Hydroxycut make me so nausuas and continuous bowel movement and gassy, but now I'm trying slimquick. And this one doesn't affect how I feel at all. I love the diet and exercise regiment but I am starting in the second level since I am a pro at working out I haven't seen any results yet but it's only been a week and I was not following the regimen at all. So I guess that the real secret is following the regiment and perhaps our bodies do need to ajust to the pill working.
Avatar n tn I had food poisoning, 4 days after it my whole body went numb, then I got extrasystoles, my heart is now beating very fast and I feel very weak and old (I am 32). Last week I started eating fish - a bit every day. Here are my questions: 1. How long would it take to see the benefits of my new fish diet? 2. Are vegetarians relly very sick people? 3. Can poor diet (like mine) and loads of stress make the body feel weak?

Avatar n tn Let me tell you that you are NOT going insane, and there is a slim-to-none chance that you are going to wake up tommorow morning and be "crazy" all of a sudden. You remind me so much of myself, because I too have been a prisoner of these fears in my life before. Honey, you are NOT going mad, nor are you severely ill by the sounds of it. Rather than going on medication, what about just seeing a therapist to TALK about what has been going on?
Avatar m tn I had to do some fast and slippery talking to get out of that nomination without getting myself into trouble, but fast and slippery was my specialty. My point is that in one direction or another, those things can be so distorted by facts and lack of facts, and I think using such material to argue for or against someone to lead the country is silly and destructive. That Carrey or however you spell it was on the boats. If I want a warrior for a president that's all I'd need to know.

Avatar n tn or 5) just getting out of the car too fast (like when you bend over and stand up too fast and get dizzy. But just yesterday, it happened after I arrived home from work, thus my first posting on this site. I was really amazed to find so many others experiencing the same thing. BTW, I have had a few migraines in my life, not many, and I do not agree that these little episodes are migraine-related.
Avatar n tn but we know that it is not possible to determine because of unpredictable day when we can have our period.. but at least we can try,, if it is every 1st week then substitute every numbers for a possibility,(just try) second old saying that whenever you feel hot it is possible that you are ovulating because of the hormone incresing our basal metabolic rate but again thats unpredictable..
Avatar n tn Hey everyone I'm new and just wanted to throw in some clinical info on Ambien and also some advice since there is a lot of misinformation so far in this thread. First, the reccommended dose is 10 mg for adults and 5 mg for the elderly or hepatically impaired. No where does the PI say anything about 2.5 starting doses. Second, Ambien is to be taken DIRECTLY before you are ready to go to sleep, this will avoid any problems like earlygrace had mentioned.
Avatar f tn Then 2 weeks ago I had to call 911, my heartrate was extremely fast and I was dizzy and very sick. I was alone at the time and couldn't get ahold of anyone so I called 911. My heart rate was over 137 and it lasted for almost 3 hours. The hospital did an EKG, and blood work which both turned out fine. I explained to them I thought it was all related to my stomach but never had my heartrate up this high and for this long,,,and could not get it to calm down.
Avatar n tn I used Warticon on it again. It vanished. Then it came back. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I went back to GUM and told them the story. I also told them I thought that blue Warticon ink was pretty terrible to use. No problem they say - we'll freeze it off. They do, I leave and am content finally the damn thing has gone. The area that was froze swelled, went pink then gradually skin began to reform over it.
Avatar n tn The fact that you cannot control or stop it is the worst i've been given tablets but it happens so fast it's too late and any tablets i take don't act fast enough and as if being at work when this happens is not bad enough what's awful as well is if your out or at someones house i have to make a mad rush for it or just deal with severe humiliation the worst was when trying to get home quickly and with noone i knew living close by and once the cramps set in i had no control and soiled myself in
Avatar n tn The excess acid was because of my gastritis, and the gastritis I think was caused by a hyperactive thyroid. I have a really fast metabolism and a sore throat that's lasted the past 8 months. My gastritis and my throat are still bothering me, so I'm going to start taking siberian pine nut oil for the gastritis and any ulcers, and lots of broccoli to calm the thyroid. And I'll minimize iodized salt intake, it will cause you to have a hyperactive thyroid!
Avatar f tn Its fallig out fast .Does your hair loss seem normal or like its more than normal after about 7 or 8 months on topamax?
Avatar n tn I still have not taken another pill since friday morning and I'm feeling a little better. I actually had a meal today, I can't say that I kept it all in, but at least I was able to eat.
Avatar n tn It states in my report from radiology that it it cat 4 but due to the position of calcifications it is unlike to be done stereotactically. What does that mean? This all happened to me so fast. Last week I had a right breast implant rupture, went to plastic surg. and she order a routine mammo. On Monday, after 4 hours and lots of picures at the radiologist, I had a feeling they found something odd. I am horrified and this has consumed me.
Avatar n tn Gosh - that was a fast reply! Thank you. Yes - I understand that 5 - 10% every 4 days is what is suggested - its just that I must be off in such a short time - and I guessed that rapid taper was better than c/t - failing that I will go c/t. But - having cut by 50% since Sunday and seeing that I feel OK (not great) on half the amount - and this is Tuesday - I thought this might be a bit easier than c/t - and I am able to work and look after the kids.
Avatar n tn Throughout the day, i made atleast 30 trips to the bathroom, but only a little bit coming out at a time, it has continued on to today, I noticed that when i go to the bathroom and wipe, that there is a little discoloration to the paper, so i decided to wear a slim tampon and there is only the light brown spotting, and a little little bit of blood as if u got a cut on your finger. I decided not to wear the tampon and see what happens.
