About two weeks ago we announced that my hubby, Mario, would be taking the Slimfast® 15-day challenge and promised to share his Slim Fast results once the challenge was over. The goal with this plan is to lose up to 6 pounds in two weeks by following the Slimfast 3-2-1 plan, which includes two Slimfast® Protein Meal Shakes or Protein Meal Bars per day, accompanied by a balanced 500-calorie meal and 3 snacks.
Since Mario is a big guy, that total amount of food wouldn't quite keep him fueled up for an entire day, so he made some modifications and instead replaced parts of his meals with the Slimfast products. His favorite Slimfast® product is the Double Dutch Chocolate Snack Bars. I had one too and they are a good snack at only 100 calories each.

Besides adjusting his meals with the Slimfast plan, he has also gone back to playing Volleyball. It has only been two nights so far, but it's a great workout! We'll be adding our trips to the YMCA back in to the equation this week, so he is looking forward to adding on to his current accomplishment of losing 3 pounds in ten days!
