Since January, like a lot of us, I’ve been trying to shed a few pounds and tone up. I was losing it the right way by exercising & eating (mostly) right. I lost 5 pounds in the space of 3 weeks which I was delighted about but I wanted a “quick” boost, as it’s coming up to my 30th Birthday party.
I ordered the Celebrity Slim Assorted Shake Pack on Boots.ie & I got it delivered to my local Boots store in Roscommon. They came the next working day. On the Boots.ie site, it gives the following details about the product;
“Each Celebrity Slim Meal Replacement Shake sachet contains a nutritionally balanced combination of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and soluble fibre. They also contain several important nutrients:
- Green tea extract.
- Dairy Calcium, a source of calcium and minerals extracted from milk.
- Caseinate, a dairy protein rich in amino acids.
- Whey Protein Concentrate provides high levels of certain amino acids.
- Soy Protein Isolate contains specific plant nutrients, known as Isoflavones.
Celebrity Slim Shakes are available in a wide range of delicious flavours to satisfy every taste.”
It comes in the following flavours:
2 Caffe Latte
You use 2 shakes as a meal replacement each day, so this pack gives you a week supply. To make the shake, you add the contents of the sachet to 200 – 250ml of cold water & shake well for 30 seconds. To be honest, I couldn’t find my shaker, so I stirred it for about a minute, until was happy that the powder dissolved.
You can have 3 allowable snacks a day (such as an orange, low fat yogurt, celebrity slim bar, apple) & a healthy, balanced meal (such as lamb, beef without the fat, chicken, fish fillets, peppers, mushrooms, cabbage, green beans).
You are not suppose to have anything high in carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta & potatoes.
You are suppose to have 2 litres of water every day with this plan.
Personally, I think I got on really well overall with the first week. I don’t eat much carbohydrates, so it didn’t bother me much cutting them out (although I went to an Italian Saturday night & had garlic bread slice, that was the only time I didn’t follow the plan). I only drank, if barely, one litre of water a day. I just don’t like the taste of water (yes, to me there is a taste). The shakes weren’t an amazing flavour, but weren’t awful. My favourite one was the chocolate, I’m really glad they had 4 in the pack, and my least favourite one was the banana, it reminded me of some medicine I took as a kid. I literally just downed the banana one, as I wanted it to be gone 😂
I lost 3 pounds on this plan. That’s with not following the rules 100%, but I know I would have lost more if I had stuck to it. I can see my love handes have gone down too 😁 You are suppose to stick to this plan for 6 weeks to get you’re desired size, but I have lost 8 pounds now so I’m happy at the minute.
It is costly at €32.99 for only a week worth in a pack & if I’m honest, unless you’re going to stick to it (good as) 100%, it’s not for you. You can see it online by Clicking Here.
