How I Lost Weight on the Slim & Save Weight Loss Plan

I was approached by a weight loss company called Slim & Save. They wanted me to try their weight loss program, so I have agreed to give it a try. Here is my result.





I received a 7-day starter pack from Slim & Save and in return, I promised them that I would write about my experience with it here on my blog. 

Slim & Save

The pack costs £29.99 which includes a shaker, a booklet of information and a measuring tape along with 28 meals. I have been on this diet now for 7 days (this is my seventh day), and so I have lost 8 pounds so far, which I am pleased about. Of course, anyone else could probably lose more in the first week, but I felt hungry and ate a bit more the first few days until I felt I was used to the diet. The first two days were the hardest, but I realised at the end of day two that I could eat more food than I had originally thought.

The plan that I have tried with Slim & Save is the Lifestyle plan which consists of eating three Slim & Save meals per day, plus a protein meal that includes vegetables in the evening. Plus, on this plan, you can have a milk allowance along with other different types of foods like low-fat Greek yogurt, eggs, sausages and more. I managed to keep it up and I was within the ketosis rate, according to the meal planner on their site, which Slim & Save advise you to do. It's a great way to keep track of what you have eaten for the day. Plus, they have a weight tracker that you can use.

You can also try the Simplicity Plan where you have four Slim & Save meals per day, but you can't eat any fish, chicken or meat - 200mg of vegetables can be consumed per day. I did try to do this plan, but I failed, so I continued to keep up with the Lifestyle Plan because I found it more suitable for myself. You can alternate Simplicity with the Lifestyle Plan if you need to lose more weight.

For people who are over 17 stone, there is the Simplicity Plus Plan and the Lifestyle Plus Plan where you can have 5 packs of Slim & Save meals per day instead of 4. These plans give you more to eat plus you can have protein, vegetables, and milk.


You can also do the 5:2 diet with Slim & Save meals.

Losing Weight with Diabetes on the Slim & Save Plan

I found I could eat enough food for the day on the Lifestyle Plan, although at first, I did find myself feeling hungry quite a bit, that rectified itself once I got used to the diet and drank more water with each meal. Usually, you have that hunger feeling on any diet. Drinking Green tea with lemon can help to stop hunger pangs. 

Of course, this way of dieting may not be for everyone, but if your main goal is to lose a hefty amount of weight because of an illness, then I would give it a go, because, at the end of the day, you are guaranteed to lose a considerable amount of weight with Slim & Save. 

Being type 2 Diabetic gave me the willpower to carry on and if you have something like that it keeps you motivated. I was still able to do this diet. I checked my glucose each day and it was always in the normal numbers even after I had eaten one of the Slim & Save meals. (Normal blood sugars were between 4 - 7 using a Diabetes blood glucose meter strip machine). 

Read some of the comments from people with Diabetes to put your mind at ease. You can find people's comments below the article titled Considerations for People with Diabetes on the Slim & Save website. They even have their own blog.



Water Intake

Like any other diet, you must drink at least two to three liters of water per day. This depends on what your weight is at the time of doing the diet. At the top of the meal planner on their site, it will tell you how much water you need each day once you have entered your weight on their site. I did drink at least three to four cups of Green tea per day too and that counts towards your water intake.

Meal Ideas

One thing I learned when doing the Slim & Save Plan was that I could mix my Slim & Save meal with zero rice or zero noodles. For instance, I had the Cottage Pie Slim & Save meal, but I wanted something more than that to fill me up, so I mixed it with zero rice. You can buy packets of zero noodles or rice from Holland and Barrett. It definitely did the trick and filled me up and it's a great way to make the noodles or rice a bit tastier. These packets of rice and noodles do not contain any carbs, so it's great for the Slim & Save diet.

Also, see my meal plan for the week below. You can see what I actually ate (taken from my meal planner on Slim & Save).
