I joined slim for life many years ago and the program works. The program works because it is a low calorie diet. I lost 65 pounds in two and a half months. It was from 10-15 to 12-31. I did cheat on the the diet during those time. My meal plan consisted of a egg and low calorie piece of toast(whole wheat) for breakfast. A orange or apple as a midmorning snack. for lunch I would have a protien 4-6 ounces(chicken and fish you can have 6 ounces) two serving of veggies. I would have green beans or salad. stay with the green veggies and you should be fine. Low fat salad dressing and a piece of bread. A apple or orange for mid day snack and repeat lunch for dinner. I took all the supplements and did not have any problems. The say no processed lunch meats and no pork. Red meat only twice a week and at least two days apart. I quit because a the counselors are rude and ignorant. They are just high pessure sales people. I was talked back and left again because of the rude counselors. Same thing happenned with my father-in-law. I did not pay all that money to be abused. However the diet does work. The problem is that the food gets bland. You mostly cook with pam. One small pat of butter a day. It is very low fat. I am now trying a combonation of the slim for life and the atkins diet. I have lost 12 ponds in the 22 days. I do the above meal plan till I can not stand it anymore and then I switch to hard core atkins(no carbs or at least under 15 a day) and eat all the meat I want then I will switch back to slim for life plan when I feel like I have had enough good food to eat. I think goals is another problem. Measuring your goals on a day basis just makes you feal bad when you miss them. My goal is to lose 10 pounds a month this year. Every month with no carry over. I now do not worry about the day to day flucuations of the scale. Set monthly goals that are reasonable and you will be better off. Another problem that I had with slim for life is that they did not want me working out. Hope this helps.

I would love to have the food plan for slim for life, but like so many other I just don’t have the money. If someone would send me the list of foods I would be forever grateful.
