Nice tomato soup. Chocolate shake using skimmed milk bearable. Meal bars are all horrible. 800 calorie snack bars are nice too. Tried other shakes and soups but did not like them. The meals are the best bit for the VLC diet, tasty and easy to make. Packaging is dire just arrives all chucked into a box with no order or care taken. My sister uses Xante diet and hers looks far better packaged and more VLC choice too. Price is good though for what you get.
How lucky am I? The answer is easy......very! I am now on my second week of following my particular eating plan from Saints and Slimmers and like the heading says...easy peasy lemon squeezy! All the hard work of diets has been taken out of it. My plan has 3 meal replacements per day and lots of water. Any problems that l may have can be sorted asap by logging onto their website and entering live chat. What more could l want? l feel good about myself and confident that l am going to reach my goal...and the cost? Well..what a lovely surprise...l had expected to pay similar to a well known competitor but l was shocked at how reasonable the costing were...for my plan its approximatly a third. The products are tasty and you have plenty of choice, and even a hot meal! Saints and Slimmers...give it a try....you'll be amazed!
I sent an email with a query never received a response still waiting my second delivery even though money has gone from my account. Info said booklet would be included never received.
Lost 4ibs first week
This diet is so easy to follow and does all the work for you, no calorie counting or working out what you have or haven't had. The milk shakes taste great and the choc muffins are just like the real thing. Have been on every diet going and this one I find is helping me focus, loose inches as well as pounds. Any queries are answered quickly by friendly staff, highly recommended.
I started the meal replacements 10 weeks ago. To date I have lost 1stone 7lbs. I am finding it easy to stick with, especially working nights as a Nurse. I take a chocolate bar to work, after having a shake in the morning before I go to bed, and have a chocolate bar or soup before I go to work. I have only tried the tomato soup so far. Initially, I did not like the chocolate bar but persevered and like them now. I also love the chocolate peanut bars, and love the chocolate milk shakes. I find them filling enough, surprisingly, and intend to carry on with them, as I still have at least 2 stone to lose. I changed to skimmed milk in tea and coffee instead of semi skimmed, and drink lots of water. I have just bought a swimming costume , (with a skirt), and intend to get the courage to start swimming after 20 years. I do have the occasional treat of a couple of lagers once a week, and have cut down a lot on alcohol. I am 53 and going through the menopause, and have come off anti -depressants recently, so I expect my weight loss to be slower, but am feeling optimistic. I consulted my G.P. before I started the diet.
I've tried different diets & have never had the weight loss success I have with the saints & Slimmers plan. It's my very own Saint to Slimmer Success Story... it's easy to follow, uncomplicated, fulfilling & most of all the results were noticeable even after the first week. I am so impressed with the plan that I intend to use it regularly as part of a healthy diet plan. This time around with thanks to this diet plan I really feel I'm wearing a saints halo.. Thank goodness I choose Saints & Slimmers over the Cambridge diet I 'll never look back
I am in my second week of the 800 calorie a day diet. The plan is simple to understand and the food packs taste nice. I haven't felt hungry at all and because the bars and meals make you feel like you are still eating, you don't feel like you are denying yourself real food. A lot of will power is needed though and towards the end of the first week I did think of caving in, but then I stepped on the scales and saw a whopping 9lb loss in the first week. This has driven me to continue the next 3 weeks. I would highly recommend saints and slimmers for the support you get and the variety of meal packs they have.
I have tried a number of other companies and Saints and Slimmers is the best. The value for money is brilliant, just compare it with others. The customer service is fantastic. The products are nice and most of all- it works.
I found the food filled me up, so that meant i was not hungry, however i was not impressed with the flavour of the snack bars & meal replacement bars. The eve meals were tasty & easy.
Really impressed, will be ordering again! Products are really filling and taste great, don't particularly like the chocolate cake bar things as they have a funny texture but the summer fruits one is nice.
Before trying Saints and Slimmers I had a two week box of Exante meal replacement products. After trying both I much prefer Saints and Slimmers. The meal shakes are nicer and I enjoy the ready made cartons cold from the fridge. Also love that the natural shakes use skimmed milk which make it a bit more luxurious compared to boring water. I did feel hungry for the first 2 days. By day 3 the hunger and headaches went. I personally struggled as I have a very low will power but I did loose over half a stone in 3 full days. I will be soon this again a week before my big holiday to loose some extra pounds I will be piling on in two weeks when I visit Cornwall. I would highly recommend this for the price. Well done Saints and Slimmers!
The Saints and Slimmers food is so yummy you don't even know your on a diet.
They make you feel full and satisfied,I am on 1200 cals and with three meals plus two snacks I am never hungry,you can also add veg salad or fruit to get your five a day.
It's also the cheapest I have found having tried a few which were far more expencive and
not nearly as nice,
I would definitely recommend products, infact already have. I love the ready shakes as its very convenient especially as a nurse on shifts. Like that u can choose what you want at the same price, I had a issue with the delivery people which customer service resolved quickly and I got my products the day after. I'm not into the bars though. I would definitely be buying once thus one finishes and the weight loss is amazing.
I would recommend S&S to anyone wishing to make a change in lifestyle and lose weight. The plans are adaptable and you can pick and choose what shakes or meals you like to suit you, according to the make up of the specific plan you choose. Personally, I do not think the soups are very nice at all (can just about stomach the tomato one for a bit of variety), and I do not enjoy the meal bars or vanilla milkshakes (very sweet/sickly), however, I really love the cottage pie and spag bol meals on the vlcd - these are very tasty! My preference is for the pre-made shakes as the packet ones can still remain grainy despite blending.
I tried to order online three times using two different cards to pay. Every time my order was cancelled.
I phoned Saints and Slimmers they said it must be my card. I called my bank who said there was nothing wrong with my cards or account and they had no record of the company trying to take a payment.
I eventually ordered over the phone - my payment went through fine. I asked if I could have express delivery as I ordering had been so difficult which they agreed to - I thought they would add this free of charge but found out later when I checked that I had been charged for it!
My order didn't arrive the next day or the day after or the day after that.
I checked the status of my order and it just said 'packing'. No contact from Saints and Slimmers to say why my order hadn't srrived.
I called them again and was told that they had run out of several items I had ordered. I asked why I wasn't told this when I ordered and was told that between my order being talken overt the phone (10:00am) and the order getting to the warehouse (that must be before 4pm the same day for next day delivery) they had run out of the shakes, so they had been waiting for them to come back in stock.
I asked why they hadn't bothered to contact me to tell me this - especially as I had paid for next day delivery, the woman just went silent.
I eventually got the order the folowing Tuesday - a ful week after the 'next day delivery' date.
Quality of products? Shakes are ok - very much like all the others youcan buy. Bars are utterly revolting. I tried Summer Berries and Chocolate. After two bites of each they all went in the bin.
Needless to say, I won't be using this company again and I would recommend you don't either.
The food for one thing is tasty and not like some other packet diet programmes out there. The porridge for example is like real porridge not pureed. The service was excellent. So far so good. :)
great food would recommend it to my family and friends. The curries were really tasty and spicy, as was the sweet and sour. I found the chocolate shakes very satisfying in all I have no complaints
Only tried shakes and bars and the shakes are ok and good that some are made up ready so is gpod as I am out and about with my job. However the bars!..... I could not stomach these as the texture is nothing like I have tasted before. Although the berries bar is tasty but the texture is bad . Unfortunately I do not feel thst saonts and slimmers offer enough tasty products for me to continue and will stick to another vcld.
Delivery was fast and I got exactly what I ordered. I really like the meals spaghetti bolognse., veg chilli and cottage pie. The muffins are also lovely. I find the texture of the bars a bit sickening would be better with some crunch although they really fill me up. I dont think the shakes mix very well either so if im not at home I end up with lumpy shakes. Ive been o another meal replacement diet and the shakes were much nicer on it. Haven't tried the porridge yet. Overall good and the choice of products is excellent. I also like how I can choose whatever I want for the same price. I would buy again but maybe stick to the ready made shakes.
It is early days but I would recommend these products to anyone who has been on a very low calorie diet before and knows what to expect and who doesn't want/need a counsellor to tell them what to do. Just what I wanted from them - no hassle, no fuss.
Order process good. Unfortunately items were not for me. Receiving poor customer service when trying to return items as per policy. Emails are being ignored and a returns authorisation code is not being issued. Currently still trying to return items.
I can honestly say that the foodpacks, shakes and bars have made it a lot easier to stick to this diet. I'm never hungry and have started to realise that my relationship with food is rarely hunger based, more greed!
All the products taste delicious, even the meal bars although they are of a strange consistency, perhaps a little greasy, but taste lovely :-)
The products are good value for money and always dispatched quickly. There could be more of a variety available to choose from but apart from that it's a great service! I follow the 5:2 diet to manage my weight. I'm a healthy weight but prefer to use the 5:2 diet so I don't have to worry too much about what I eat. The chocolate meal replacement bars are very filling and I enjoy the milk shakes too.
I've tried about two of the lcd and vlcd with other competitors and have found saints and slimmers to be the best! I like the heavenly milkshakes as they are easy to carry around with you and the savoury meal pack's are amazing! Everyone at home thought I would fall at the first hurdle but its been 5 days so far and haven't slipped. Would recommend this diet to everyone! Straight forward and easy. Had a sneaky peek at the scales this morning and ive lost 6lb in 5 days! Bring on wednesday and my 2nd order of s&s!
I bought the 100% Whey Shakes and they are fantastic - the Strawberry and Whipped Cream flavour is one of the best I have tasted. I've used these as a snack option whilst eating sensibly and the results have been great.
Delivery was on time and with no issues.
After being on another vlcd i thought id try saints an slimmers, was disappointed at the time it took to come, however the sachets are nice, i really like the flavoured porridge, the heavenly shakes are good too an you aint got to worry about mixing them as they are made up. Will order more but would be happier if delivery was quicker. I ordered on the thursday an i didnt recieve my order until the following wednesday.
I have tried a number of products now and am extremely happy with the service and quality of good. The plans are easy to follow as even the milkshake powders leave me feeling full. The soups could taste a bit nicer but hopefully I'll get more into them in the winter! Highly recommended for people motivated to lose weight.
I am very pleased i found this weight loss company. Their products are of a very high standard with lots of different meal plans, there is deffinately one to suit everyone however much weight be it a small amount or a large amount to loose! If you have any queries you can phone and speak to an adviser who can give you help and encouragement to get you motivated and on the way to loosing that unwanted weight. I have already recomended you to two of my friends one of which is signed up already the other will be soon. If you need to loose weight safely and quickly i recomend the meal replacement plan i lost 13bls in my first week and fell wonderful am so going to get to my goal this time .
On the 5:2 diet at the mo, the packs make it sooo much easier to do as I don't have to think about counting cals on my low days! So far the shakes and soups are nice enough, I'm not keen on the bars really but they're not so bad I wouldn't eat them.
Fab delivery, excellent communication definitely be replacing my stock next month :-))
I started Saints and Slimmers on Saturday and I'm on day 5 ,My friend is doing another VLCD with a competitor and so its a challenge because if he can do it so can I!! but I've tried a diet based on shakes and bars only and I last maybe 4 days at most so I needed to find something that had a balance. I need to get rid of my baby weight which I have never got rid of after having 2 children, I also travel a lot for work so the diet I chose had to be flexible and controlled but with some food in it also! I opted for a customised plan which allows me 1000 calories and I have to say it works - I've lost 5lb's and can visibly see a difference. The first 2 days were really hard but once you get over that its actually not too bad, drinking enough is vital though! The shakes are nice even better if you poor them over ice and the ready meals are as good as any that I've had from M&S! I add herbs to my soup and defo try mixing a vanilla shake with coffee over ice its as good as starbucks! I have finally got the momentum I needed!!
I thought I would try this to kick-start my diet and bought the 5:2 option to try it and, in case I didn't like the shakes, the economical option. I adapted it to suit my lifestyle and lost 9 pounds in the first two and a half weeks. I have now bought the 28 day breakfast and lunch replacement option and am still in the first week of that. Being able to add options like porridge, muffins and 'proper' meal options has allowed me to vary my daily choices. I have had a few hungry moments, but all in all getting the right balance of shakes and meals hasn't had me reaching for the biscuits at work!!
The food tastes great, there's only one or 2 things I'm not 100% about but it's so easy to not have to think about what you have to cook. The food keeps you full and is very satisfying! I've been following the 1200 calorie diet for 2 weeks and 3 days and I have lost 6lbs!
I've already bought my next months and it is all in my cupboard :) love this "diet" and will continue to follow it for a good while yet :)
This was recommended by a friend that I respect so I thought "GIVE IT A GO" cheaper than the sacred " L . L. " but on the same principle. I haven't as yet tried all the packs and drinks so maybe this is not valid.
Parcel a bit bashed and split so the muffins were bashed and crumbley and not their best, disappointing. The bars are too big and therefore heavy with calories, I would prefer a smaller bar as they are too much. Their consistency would also easier to stomach in a smaller portion.
I am starting seriously on Monday so will be pleased to update as I experience more.
I am optimistic and like the approach .I am hoping my score will go to five stars with no more spoilt parcels.
