YES, whey protein is a much better meal replacement. Slim Fast is full of sugar and has very little protein and it is protein that keeps you fuller longer.



QFT. I started to add Muscle Milk to my Slim Fast shakes, it tastes really good but I also feel full a lot longer than just on a Slim Fast shake alone.

Maybe I worded my question wrong. I guess I was trying to see if there was something like whey protein but that was formulated for losing weight. Most things I have read about whey protein have said they are for building mass. I thought maybe adding something to my Slim Fast would work, but if it is something by itself i am up to try that too. I only have been drinking Slim Fast because I got it on sale and I am so busy that cooking lunch isn't an option for me.


I think you misunderstand what protein powder is. It's simply a drink with calories that is made up of mostly protein to help people get more protein into their diet. They are not formulated to help you gain or lose weight (even ones labeled as mass gainers are just high in calories, that's it).

I don't have time to cook breakfast or lunch, so I meal prep on the weekends and take a lunch with me. I have access to a microwave and can have chicken, soup or leftovers. If you don't you could have a sandwich, wrap or salad. Those will keep you full. It's about deciding to not be lazy and plan ahead.

I have never tried SlimFast, but I do use GNC Lean 25 shake when I replace meals, it has a fiber in it that keeps the hunger at bay. I do run into that I want something to eat just for the chewing and such, so I'll have an apple or some carrots, just something a little solid helps.
Also, a lot of these shakes are really low in calories and to have them as a meal instead of a snack will probably leave you hungry. If my shake is 120 calories I tend to have it as one of the small mid-meals instead of one of the main meals.
