Slimfast

First off I'm not trying to diet while pregnant. I just wanted to see what you ladies think of drinking one of these drinks as an in between meal type snack. I'm 8 weeks and have been having the hardest time finding foods that I want to eat and also constantly keeping something on my stomach so I'm not queasy.

    I think it's fine. I drink an Ensure or GNC Lean Shake when I'm having a hard time eating or for breakfast. My doctor said it was fine.

     I thought I was the only one doing this!!! I drink Slimfast. it's one of the few things I can keep down.  I don't substitute it for a meal but drink it as a snack too.  I rather drink a slimfast shake that has vitamins and minerals than to eat junk food.

    Ditto. I slice up fruit and stick it in the freezer so I can make smoothies really quickly with Greek yogurt and a little OJ. I also put spinach in it because that is pretty much the only way I can get down green leafies at this point!

    I drink Ensure, they're more for weight gain than loss, and have like 25% DV of a ton of vitamins. I drink them in the morning because I'm usually queasy but I never feel like eating. They're good for in a pinch so I don't turn to junk food instead.

    If you're going to drink it, I'd vote for the GNC Lean Shake.  Go for as much protein as you can find.  The ready made GNC Lean Shakes have 25g of protein and only 6g of carb.  Slimfast doesn't pack that powerful a punch.
