SlimFast Keto Reviews

This our review and report into the SlimFast Keto diet and products. You’ll already be aware of who SlimFast are, but is their new Keto range on point with a real ketogenic diet?

We’re not so sure. Some of the Slim Fast Keto products do have some merit, and they may help keep you in ketogenesis – but the other products in here may be taking more of a risk.

The SlimFast Keto range claims to promote:

  • Fast Results
  • Ketogenesis
  • Fat Loss
  • Reduce Hunger Cravings

So what exactly will we be covering in this review, and how well will all this work for you. Let’s take a look:

Slimfast Keto

SlimFast Keto Products

In this report, we’ll be looking at the following SlimFast Keto Products:

  • SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs
  • SlimFast Keto Meal Replacement Bars
  • SlimFast Keto Shakes

We’ll be taking a closer look at what each one of these are, along with their nutritional information (if applicable) and how that may work for you. You’ll also find out what people are saying in their reviews about each of these products, along with our own opinions.

SlimFast Keto Diet Plan

The SlimFast Keto plan puts women on a 1,200 to 1,300 calorie a day diet, and men on 1,600 to 1,700 calories per day.

Just like any Keto diet, Slim Fast demands that you eat high fats and low carbs to ensure that you stay in a state of ketosis to burn the maximum amount of fat.

To help with the SlimFast Keto Diet Plan you can use their products (labelled above). They suggest replacing two of your meals with one their meal replacement products – such as the meal bar or shake. You can also consume 3 of the SlimFast Keto snacks and have one keto-friendly meal of your own choosing.

After reviewing these products, we actually find that could be a bit much. The bars especially contain an amount of sugar which could lead to insulin spikes if you keep snacking on them throughout the day.

SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs

SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb

The SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs are a unique addition to the Slim Fast Keto arsenal. They’re essentially like a more keto-friendly Reese’s Peanut Butter cup.

Like with all keto diets, it’s a low-carb high-fat product and should be a nice snack to have throughout your plan.

Coming in peanut butter cup flavor, SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs are made up of MCT coconut oil and are gluten-free and contain no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

It contains zero sugar, 7 grams of carbs and 2 grams of protein per serving.

Each SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb is around 90 calories each.

SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Reviews

SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb reviews are positive on the whole. They’re not the type of food that will make or break your Ketogenic diet, but they’re a good support which can help feed cravings and be tasty in the process.

The main thing that is concerning people is the price and the changes in formula.

Here’s some of the more interesting reviews we’ve seen on SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs:

– 5 Star Review from Walmart Customer

“These are absolutely delicious! I was surprised by how satisfying just 1 of these are. There was no weird aftertaste, and my taste-buds were able to tell me, ‘Yes, I am eating a pb [Peanut Butter] cup.’ One thing about the keto lifestyle that no one tells you is you have to train your taste-buds and brain to be very open-minded. Not every keto version of something is going to taste like the original. But these fat bombs are great! The chocolate isn’t bitter at all (keto uses a lot of 100% cacao and dark chocolate) and tastes like milk chocolate. The peanut butter isn’t gritty, but rather smooth. I was satisfied after slowly enjoying just 1. Overall I give these 5 stars. Now, about the price…lol”

And here’s a more negative one review from another customer:

– 1 Star Review from Walmart Customer

“Something is wrong here. I’m confused. I purchased this item from Walmart online for in-store pickup. The item I picked up was the correct item, but the macros were different from the online image. Inside the store the product has 2 net carbs, but Walmart.com advertises 1 net carb. So to see whether Slimfast had changed the recipe, I went to their website. I’m confused again, because the nutrition label on their website doesn’t match Walmart.com or what they have in store. Attaching an image to show the three labels. I don’t know which one is accurate. Maybe they all are and they keep changing it. Either way it’s not consistent and I don’t trust this product.”

We suspect this may be growing pains from the range being fairly new. SlimFast may be changing the recipe to get it right – and the macros may change as new stock comes in.

Our View:

In our honest opinion, you could make something similar to these fat bombs at home with old-fashioned home cooking – which would save you on the painful $10.00 price. But if you don’t mind shelling out to stay in ketosis – these may be worth a try. They’re low-carb and come in such a delicious flavor.

SlimFast Keto Bars

Slim Fast Keto Bars

SlimFast Keto Meal Replacement Bars are another new product from the Keto range that are getting a lot of attention.

They’re quite similar to the fat bombs that we’ve already covered and come in a similar flavor: Whipped Peanut Butter Chocolate.

Like the fat bombs, Slim Fast Keto Bars are made mainly with coconut MCT oil. However, whey protein is also used in these bars.

It’s another product that is gluten-free and cuts out artificial sweeteners, flavors and colors. SlimFast Keto Bars are not snacks – they’re a full meal replacement.

They contain 14 grams of fat in each bar, 7 grams of whey protein and 3 grams of sugars, along with a total of 3 grams of net carbohydrates.

There are 5 bars in every pack which retails for around $10.00.

SlimFast Keto Bars Reviews

Slim Fast Keto Meal Bars seem to get more criticism than fat bombs when it comes to public opinion. There’s a lot of people out there that like them, but there are also several who think there’s room for improvement – especially when it comes to the flavor.

Below, as before, we’ll give you a look at a positive review, and a more negative one. Unlike the Fat Bombs, there are more negative ones of the SlimFast Keto Bars here – at the time of this review, it had an average rating of 3.2 over 41 reviews.

Here’s someone who liked it a lot:

– 5 Star Review from Walmart Customer

“These are an absolute must for me on Keto for meal replacement. Love the flavor and the fat bombs by SlimFast are amazing as well. Once the sugar detox is over you don’t want the real sugar anymore!”

Whereas this customer was a little more disgruntled:

– 2 Star Review from Walmart Customer

“These bars remind me of when I eat sunflower seeds but am too lazy to open the shells so I put a handful of the seeds, kernel and shell, into my mouth and chew. Besides tasting like sunflower seed shells, these bars have a slightly discernible chocolate taste and are not sweet… Even my dog didn’t like them. Save your money.”

Our view:

Honestly, although it sounds good – 18% of the calories here are net carbs. Although delicious, we want to point out that 15 grams of this is carbohydrate. That’s about a third of the bar. This could potentially risk your ketosis.

In terms of the SlimFast Keto Snacks – the Fat Bombs are a lot more low-carb.

SlimFast Keto Shakes

SlimFast Keto Shakes

SlimFast Keto Shakes are the main part of their Keto Plan. These, along with the bars, can be used as a full meal replacement.

There’s 5 grams of net carbs and there’s some good ingredients in here too: grass-fed butter, whey protein, MCT oil – all that good stuff. Again, no gluten, it’s low-carb and there’s no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.

All you need to do to make a SlimFast Keto Shake is to combine it with 8 fluid ounces of water in a shaker or blender and enjoy.

At the moment you can currently get 10 servings of SlimFast Keto Meal Replacement Shake for around $15.00.

SlimFast Keto Shake Reviews

What are people saying about SlimFast Keto Meal Shakes when they review it? The main consensus appears to be that Slim Fast have fallen short of the mark when it comes to actual flavor.

Reviewers appreciate that SlimFast Keto Shakes can help replace a meal and still give them the nutrients they need – but the experience of taking it is having a negative effect on them.

Like before, we’ll be giving you a positive review, and a negative review of the SlimFast Keto Shakes for some balance:

– 4 Star Review from Walmart Customer:

“This SlimFast meal replacement shake powder tastes great with almond milk. The label says that it could be used with water. I tried that and it didn’t taste good. If you are going to try this shake with water, I suggest adding some form of milk to give it a great taste.”

Although this was a positive review, this customer said that the flavor of the Slim Fast Keto Shake is lacking when used with water.

– 1 Star Review from Walmart Customer:

“The taste is NOT good to me. I messed around and bought two different packs, Strawberry and the Mocha flavors. I couldn’t even finish one bottle of either of them. I was gonna try and doctor them, or maybe use half a bottle at a time in smoothies, but I haven’t yet. However, I DON’T recommend these and I won’t buy them again. Atkins or Premier Shakes are much better.”

As you can see, this customer didn’t have a good time taking the shakes, despite experimenting with flavors.

Our View:

Again, a lot of this product is carbs despite trying to be low-carb. 11% of this Keto shake is made up of carbohydrates. This could risk breaking your ketosis.

Out of all the products in the SlimFast Keto range – you really have to give it to the Fat Bombs – the rest just don’t seem to measure up. However tasty (or not in the case of the shakes) they may be.

Is SlimFast Keto Actually Keto?

For our SlimFast Keto review, we believe that some of their products could be used for helping with a ketogenic diet and maintaining ketosis – but they’re not the best option out there.

Shortly after writing this review, we found this video which seemed to agree with a lot of the points we were making:

If you don’t have time for the video, here’s a quick list of what Black Sheep said:

  • SlimFast Keto Bars are good in a pinch – but shouldn’t be relied upon.
  • The flavor is good though, tastes like a Butterfinger.
  • SlimFast Keto Bombs are actually Keto, although they don’t look like they do on the box, they’re still good.
  • The Diet Plan isn’t ideal and may cause insulin spikes.

The main thing that wasn’t mentioned here was the Keto shakes – but by our view, it seems to fall into the same category as the bars.

They seem like a good idea for someone who is just starting a ketogenic diet for the first time and wants something structured and not too serious when it comes to seeing fast results – it just may throw you off your ketosis.

That said, the meal bars and the shakes seem to be slight risks to ensuring maximum ketosis – however, those SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs seem to do the job just fine. They’re low-carb and most reviews claim them to be delicious.

We review a lot of supplements on uclh.org and did the research to find the most effective keto options on the market.

In our guide, you'll see the best keto supplements which are:

1. Completely Natural
2. Great for Fat Loss
3. Actually Work (Hint: Not BHBs!)
4. Delivers Faster Results

You'll learn what works and what doesn't for ketosis, along what we take for great results while on keto.
