    Summary

    Slim Fast has one of the most recognizable brands in the meal replacement shake marketplace. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone that hasn’t heard of it. We focused on the French Vanilla Shake Mix for our review of this commonly utilized shake option for weight loss and management. The first ingredient, for example, is sugar which is not conducive to weight management. It all unravels from there, causing us to not recommend this option highly.

    Ingredients

    Soy – In our opinion, soy is not an ideal protein source, as there are a lot of alternatives out there. Recent studies have linked soy proteins to thyroid issues, food allergies, danger for pregnant or nursing women, immune system problems, and much more.

    Acesulfame potassium -“What’s in it: Acesulfame-K is a potassium salt containing methylene chloride, a known carcinogen. Reported side effects: Long term exposure to methylene chloride can cause nausea, headaches, mood problems, impairment of the liver and kidneys, problems with eyesight and possibly cancer. Acesulfame-K may contribute to hypoglycemia. Concerns: Of all artificial sweeteners, acesulfame-K has undergone the least scientific scrutiny. Early studies showed a potential link between the sweetener and development of multiple cancers in laboratory animals. Acesulfame potassium is a calorie-free sugar substitute, also known as Acesulfame K or Ace K. In the U.S., it is used in such products as candies, baked goods, frozen desserts, beverages, dessert mixes and tabletop sweeteners. The FDA, which is the governmental agency responsible for ensuring the safety of all foods, has approved acesulfame potassium for use in numerous food products. ”

    Aspartame Aspartame is usually #1 of all artificial sweeteners most dangerous list.   What’s in it: Phenylalanine, aspartic acid and methanol. Besides being considered a deadly poison by many watchdog groups, aspartame actually contributes to weight gain by causing a craving for carbohydrates. A study of 80,000 women by the American Cancer Society found that those who used this neurotoxic “diet” sweetener actually gained more weight than those who didn’t use aspartame products.  Other reported side effects: Headaches, fibromyalgia, anxiety, memory loss, arthritis, abdominal pain, nausea, depression, heart palpitations, irritable bowel syndrome, seizures, neurological disorders, vision problems, brain tumors and weight gain.  Concerns: Phenylalanine and aspartic acid directly impact brain and central nervous system functions; evidence shows they play a role in mood disorders, memory problems and other neurological illnesses.

    Conclusion

    Slim Fast Optima may be popular, however, upon review you will find more controversial ingredients in this shake than most we have evaluated.

      I have been drinking slim fast for 20 year every morning …… now it has changed …… it’s more expensive, old slim fast was 12 oz the new one is 11 oz but a taller container and the old one taste a lot better. So now they are getting more money for less and doesn’t taste as good. I will be looking for a new morning drink!

      I have been drinking slim fast for a long time the creamy milk chocolate but now they must have adjusted something because it does not taste the same any more. I like the old product better than this new version. Its in a new white, red bottle and it taste really bad. Please go back to the old formula. I will not buy any more of this new product because of the bad taste.

      Does all of your shakes contain artificial sweetners? They are very nasty and leave an after taste.

        Unfortunately all of their shakes do contain aspartame, as well as a significant amount of sugar.

      slim fast works but I have been complaining about my eyesight since taking the product so will be switching shakes when I run out. Chocolate taste great which must be the sugar spike.

        This has unfortunately been the case for many people who have tried SlimFast. What works for one person may notwork for another! Hopefully you’re able to find another meal replacement shake that works for you.

    17. Lost With SF

      This article is wrong on the Aspartame. I have a bottle and reviewed the ingredients. Mine has Sucralose and Ace K. I used Slim Fast several years ago. Very successful. I lost a total of 20 lbs over 8 months. I did gain back when I started eating regular foods again as I hadn’t learned any new eating habits. The only down side to Slim Fast is you are supplementing your diet, not learning how to eat healthier. I have since learned through another program how to eat healthier. I use Slim Fast to jumpstart my weight loss and maintain when I want to indulge for a weekend. I also use it when my schedule is too busy for a regular meal and I don’t want to sabatoge my regular eating habits for a quick fix. I like the flavor and the results I have had using this product over the past 12 years.

        Aspartame is actually included in each flavor on the Slim Fast Meal Replacement Shake Mix. It’s less than half way through the ingredients list on every flavor written on their website.

      I’m retired military and I used slimfast 25 years ago after having my first daughter…I lost 30 pounds in less than two months replacing two meals, breakfast, and lunch and exercising. I then maintained my weight throughout my 22 years using the shakes on and off. I like slimfast because it has a great taste, and smells good. I have tried other products before but I could not get past the taste or the smell of them which made it difficult for me to drink. I also find slimfast to be the best in price. Today, I pay less than $6 a can of 14 servings. Every now and then I incorporate these milkshakes with my fast pace of life…the shakes are life savers and keep me from spending money buying junk food at work and most important the shake keeps me satisfied.

      I drink the bottled shakes I do not like the aftertaste, it tastes like aspartame , but I drink the strawberry shakes so it could just be that the strawberry is kind of 3.5 out of 5. definitely will get chocolate or vanilla next time.

      I’ve used the slimfast powdered shakes for years now, but I’ve recently developed a very bad side effect. I experience the “intense hunger”, which makes drinking the dang things moot! The worst part is, I can eat real food and the hunger won’t go away. It keeps me up at night! I am done with slimfast, especially after finding out some of the ingredients. Don’t fool yourself, this isn’t really “health food”.
