Dear ladies, you may rememberTheBoxQueen’s Back to Fitness” series I had during winter, and spring which I fully intend to restart this coming fall/winter. After I wrote the very last edition in April, I got super busy with kid’s schools wrapping up, extracurricular activities finalizing, and most importantly with our traveling & overseas summer plans on full speed.

We froze our membership at our sports club in May, I had to run back, and forth on errands to straighten everything out before we left, and on top of it all, I was shopping for gifts for family, as well as necessities to take with us. There absolutely was no time for my regular fitness schedule at the gym, and very little of it for my regular runs.

By the time we were at our destination beginning of June, I was already feeling unhealthy, and out of shape. Now friends, you can’t believe how AMAZING my mom’s cooking is, ( aren’t moms like that! ) and visiting back home also means meeting with all my friends. Childhood friends, school ones, and college; we gather with a different  darling friend almost everyday mostly over food. Delectable, inviting Mediterranean tastes, and such appetizing local cuisine. It goes without saying I ate and didn’t regret it for a moment.

Until I did. Not completely, but just for a bit. The scale was not my friend ( I gained 5 pounds), but much more importantly I felt bloated, & not my healthy self. I needed a change, and came across a wonderful program  Slimfast 14 Days to Slim by Slimfast.

Slimfast 14- Day Slimdown is a nutritiously balanced, and may I say very delicious program to lose up to 6 pounds in your first 2 weeks.

Here is how you do it:

Keep in mind the shakes, and bars that are meal replacement products should be used as such, and not as an addition to an healthy meal.

During all the fun craziness going on in my life the past couple of months, one sore spot was healthy snacking – or maybe unhealthy I should say. I am a big snacker. To keep going during the day, I need at least a couple snacks in between my meals. Exactly the reason I was so blissed to discover the Slimfast gimme some Greek Yogurt & Honey snack bars.

These snack bars are chewy, have a generous layer of honey on top, and are coated with the good for you greek yogurt, hence the white color you can see at the very bottom pic. If you are a honey lover, and have a sweet tooth like me, this Slimfast bar debuted in April 2014 will become your best friend in your 14 Days to Slim journey.

After run snack

As a part of the 30 minute a day exercise program, I re-started my beloved form of exercise; running. It’s easy, doesn’t require a gym, and I love that it is done in open air. It’s wonderful inhaling lots of clean, fresh air, and the abundant oxygen to make your lungs smile.

I take a bar of Slimfast Greek Yogurt & Honey snack bar with me each time I go out.  These bars come in a pack of six. Their small size is super convenient for carrying around. Usually after my runs I am hungry as a bear, and instead of eating empty calorie snacks, I eat one of these yummies.

This is after my one of my summer runs, resting in a shade, enjoying the view, and delighting in one of my Slimfast Greek Yogurt and Honey Snack Bars. 

Apart from taking the bars along with me on my runs, I also put them in my purses to munch on during daily activities so I don’t give in to the craving monster when I see a huge bar of chocolate or a strawberry covered fruit tart. 🙂

Another remarkable part of the Slimfast 14 Day Slimdown, is the Slim Coaching you can sign up for. Slim Coaching offers tips from experts, funny videos, and is a lovely resource of daily motivation. I find it to be a very welcome extra encouragement to stay on track. It’s so easy to sign-up. I definitely recommend it to you all.

Results you say? In the past week I’ve implemented Slimfast 14 Day SlimDown I’ve already lost two and a half pounds. Pretty good right? I am definitely continuing with this.

To get more information you can also visit Slimfast Facebook and Slimfast Pinterest.

What do you ladies think? Have you tried a Slimfast product or the Slimfast 14 Day Slimdown?

Now that I am mostly back on track with healthy eating, and exercise thanks to Slimfast, I feel like my Fitness series will be genuine again, and that’s the only way I would write them. Wait for Back to Fitness to restart in the coming months.

    I needed this! I also gained some weight this summer. Also didn’t find much time for exercise. Love hearing about this program. Seems uncomplicated enough and I can’t say no to tasty snacks. 🙂

    • Ahhh summer, seems like we all eat and get a bit lazy LOL. So funny too as I initially thought in summer I would be much more active but life doesn’t always go as planned. The plan is very uncomplicated and yesss it’s tasty. Good luck with it my dear. Let me know how it goes. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Sophia

    I have tried their peanut flavor bar before. It was very good. Tempted to try Greek yogurt and honey. Will sign up with Slim Coaching. Thanks for introducing the program Elif!

    • I tried the peanut one myself and LOVE that one- so good! Happy to hear you are signing up. It’ll give you some good motivation 🙂 You are very welcome lovely! XOXO, Elif

  • Cheryl

    Thanks for sharing this, looks like a great plan! One of the meal bars (Have Your Cake) was in my summer FabFitFun box; it was my first time trying a Slimfast product and I really enjoyed it.

    • I’ve heard they were in FabFitFun boxes. (btw can’t believe I’ve never tried that sub. Is it still good? ) Have not tried the Have Your Cake bar yet, now that you mentioned it I want to haha. The plan is really great, as it is convenient and pretty straightforward but more importantly worked in the first week. :-)) Have a fab day Cheryl, XOXO, Elif

  • Tban

    I usually try to stay away from the snack bars. Although, they replenish your energy levels, they do have a lot of calories. But these seem like they are wort a try especially if i am on the go. Thank Elif for introducing these slim bars.

    • Know what you mean Tulay, these ones luckily have only 110 or 100 calls depending on the flavor and they hold me over until lunch or dinner which is huge as I am a snacker for sure :-)) You are very welcome dear. <3 XOXO, Elif

  • You look amazing girl! I love those bars they are so yummy!!!

    • Thx sweets <3 and the bars are beyond yummy :-)) XOXO, Elif

  • I’ve been trying to lose weight and have definitely hit a wall these past couple of months. It’s definitely tempting to give this a try! Also, I love your shoes!

    • Andrea, give this a try. So easy, quite affordable and you can find the products at grocery stores or on Amazon. It did give results to me and motivation ( with slim coaching)Btw Thx love I adore my pink running shoes too 🙂 XOXO, Elif

      • I think you have convinced me! I think I’ll really need it after these next two weeks, it’s festival time here which means lots of bad foods easily accessible! Looking on the Slim Fast website I’m noticing that a lot of the flavors available in the US aren’t available in Canada, including the “Have Your Cake” bar. Now to decide if I buy in store here, or order from the States for a better selection. Also, I noticed your comment on another post about FabFitFun. Super awesome box! I’ll use every item I got in the summer box, I have a $15 off code for the summer box if you end up wanting to sign up!

        • Andrea you’ll love it I think. Let me know your progress, would love to hear!!! Totally hear you, this summer I have been the same way. Lots of opportunities to eat such a variety of great food and not necessarily healthy haha. What can I say, love eating. You can maybe purchase from Amazon instead of grocery stores if you can’t find flavors you like in Canada grocery stores. Btw thx for letting me know your experience with FabFitFun, I am getting more and more intrigued. XOXO, Elif

  • I’ve honestly never tried slimfast, but those bars look delicious! I’ll have to keep this in mind next time I am trying to drop a few pounds!

    • Laura it is definitely great for losing a couple pounds healthily and the bars are very yummy. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Sibel

    I really need to go on a diet! I wish I could eat those

    • Sibel you can find these bars at various grocery stores as well as Amazon.com – they are wonderful for snacking and you can also sign up for their coaching free online. XOXO, Elif

  • I remember doing the slim fast diet years ago but i never tried the bars. You look great in your workout outfit.

    • The bars are so delicious, totally great for my sweet tooth in between meals. Thx Lorna- so sweet of you to say. XOXO, Elif
