I’ve been following the Slimfast plan for exactly a month today, and have lost just over 10lbs in that time. I have been eating a shake or meal replacement bar for both breakfast and dinner, enjoying three 100 calorie snacks throughout the day and preparing a 600 calorie or less meal for tea. I’ve found making the meals from scratch hard, both time and calorie counting wise, and so have decided to mix it up with some oven ready meals from Iceland.
I am going to attempt to share my meal plan and the calories here each week, it will be handy for me to look back on and I hope my readers will also find it beneficial. We all know that I’m not the most organised so the weekly plans may or may not happen, but for now, here is week one of my Slimfast meal plan.
Monday – Carrot fries (150g, 177 kcal), slow cooked pulled gammon (150g, 157 kcal) & egg (1 egg, 78 kcal) – total calories 412
Tuesday – Egg (1 egg, 78 kcal), ham (100g, 112 kcal) & beans (1/3 tin, 121 kcal) on toast (2 slices 50/50 bread, 204kcal) – total calories 515
Wednesday – Baby potatoes with herbs & butter (150g, 123 kcal), breaded cod fillet (253 kcal), lettuce (2 cups, 13 kcal), cucumber (100g, 16 kcal), tomato (50g, 9 kcal), healthier choice salad cream (2 tbsp, 40 kcal) – total calories 454
Thursday – Slimming World Burger (159 kcal), brioche roll (154 kcal), cheese slice (56 kcal), tomato (50g, 9 kcal), lettuce (1 cup, 7 kcal) & sweet potato chips (100g, 184 kcal) – total calories 569
Friday – Chicken (100g sliced chicken breast, 120 kcal), egg fried rice (200g, 298 kcal) & pitta bread (161 kcal) – total calories – 579

Please note that calories and servings are approximate.
I am so surprised at just how much I can eat. All of these meals are quick, convenient, delicious, and, most importantly, under 600 calories.
I tend to shop around for my Slimfast products, Superdrug currently have a 3 for 2 Slimfast offer, ChemistDirect are usually very reasonably priced and I’ve also set up some subscribe & save items on Amazon.
