While upon The Slender Blend your supposed to change two of your three meals a day with a shake, or protein filled item like a smoothie made using the mixture. Then your remaining meal should be as healthy as possible, sadly this stuff won't work if your only proper meal of the day is pizza.To make your shake you just take four of the yellow spoonfuls of powder and mix with either water or some form of milk. I mix mine with water so it's as low kcal as possible but sometimes if I want a more filling option I'll mix it with an almond milk. Each 40g serving translates to only 150kcal, but packs in a whopping 31g of protein with only 2g of carbohydrate, sugars and fat. No wonder this stuff works. The suggested use for the capsules is within the first week take one in the morning and one in the afternoon with a meal or shake. Then from week two onwards up the dosage to two per morning/afternoon. It's suggested due to the high levels of caffeine in these pills you don't take them after three o'clock or you may have some trouble sleeping.
The Slender Blend comes in five different flavours: chocolate, banana, strawberry, naked and of course vanilla. If your wondering the naked flavour is well flavourless so it's perfect for adding to smoothies without adding any extra flavours or making it too sweet. On recommendation I opted for vanilla, sweet but simple. I've had The Slender Blend before but didn't really stick to it, opps but since then they've changed and improved the flavour of the vanilla protein. It's now so much fluffier and tastes almost like golden syrup, however I find it a lot less sickly sweet compared to the old vanilla flavour. So if you didn't like the old vanilla, I'd definitely recommend retrying it now. I also know people who have tried the strawberry and say it tastes just like strawberry milkshake flavour.
Another great thing about this stuff is not only does it make a tasty shake which is quick to make and easy for on the go but you can also use it in other delicious ways to make scrummy smoothies and even treats like cookies and pancakes. Who says dieting needs to be boring? With each order they include a little book full of a range of different recipes to keep things a little more interesting. I just last night made the protein pancakes and they were amazing, going to make them so much more often now!
When I tried The Slender Blend before but didn't really stick to it, I did see results so this time when I'm going to follow it religiously hopefully I'll be a skinny minnie by the time I get to Miami. I personally think The Slender Blend is a great method of dieting without losing too much tasty treats. I really do find myself not craving sweet things while I'm on it which is great so just got to keep those savoury munchies at bay to shed those extra lbs. I'll update this post with results when I start to see some difference so keep an eye out on here.
