Slimfast 3.2.1 Plan | Week One

Now that the baby making days are over, I have really struggled with losing all the baby I’ve gained. Takeaways have quickly become my new best friend and I have a new found love of sweets and chocolate. I looked at photos of myself and I did not like what I saw at all. The image displeased me and I felt almost disgusted at myself for the person I had become. 
So, I attempted Slimming World, but I didn’t even make it a day. Where was my willpower? 
I frantically started Googling all the diets known to man and some of them are crazy! Drinking apple cider vinegar before a meal of kale and spinach just does not sound appetising at all! But, while doing our weekly food shop for junk, I spotted the Slimfast brand.

I had always heard bad feedback about Slimfast, and I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to drink 3 meal replacement shakes a day. I needed food! So I went home and had a Google – as one does.

The Slimfast website was so helpful and packed full of information. I had never heard of the 3.2.1 plan before but it sounded plenty doable. 3 snacks a day (under 100 calories), 2 meal replacements (either a shake or a bar) and one meal under 600 calories. How could I snack 3 times a day and still lose weight? It was pleasing for my tummy. Slimfast say you could lose between 1 and 2lbs a week!

So I bought some strawberry shakes and the chocolate crunch meal replacement bars, plus a load of low calorie snacks and downloaded all the plans, readily available on the Slimfast website, to help organise a meal plan.

So how did I get on?

So as you can see from my meal plan, I done pretty well, you don’t have to eat 3 snacks a day but you can if you want to, and I skipped a few meals when I was really busy and didn’t get time to eat. Plus on Wednesday I was a bit poorly and didn’t eat all day until Darren came home and suggested a chip shop dinner. It was so good!

End weight: 148.8lbs

A loss of 2.2lbs! Result. Think I’ll try that again next week!
