The meal replacement plan has evolved over the years and now offers nutrition bars, meal bars, smoothies, snacks and powders. SlimFast boasts that there are more than 30 clinical studies that reveal the effectiveness of the weight-loss program.
In addition to the diet-friendly, convenient products offered by Slim-Fast, the company also puts forth personalized meal plans known as Slim-Fast Optima -- a nutritious balance of protein, healthy fats and complex carbohydrates. There are also lower-carb, low-sugar products for the carb-conscious dieter.
