Aldi is best known for its budget groceries and cut-price Specialbuys, but now one of the brand’s products has been hailed as the key to losing weight. The Slim & Trim weight loss shakes have sparked headlines as people take to social media to reveal their weight loss success stories. Some dieters have reported losing up to 10 stone by replacing meals with the shakes.
The Slim & Trim shakes are available as single servings of 55g, in a sachet form.
The protein shake powder can be mixed with water for a quick and easy weight loss drink on the go, or mixed with milk for a more filling blend.
One 55g serving contains just 205 calories, making it easier for dieters to cut back when following a diet plan with a calorie deficit.
This means eating fewer calories than you burn in the day, by exercising more and consuming fewer than the usual recommended daily intake which is designed to help people maintain their weight.
Writing on the Aldi Mums Facebook page, one mum revealed her amazing weight loss transformation after using the shakes.
Jackie Burrows, 54, from Brisbane, went from a size 22 at 19 stone to a size 8/10 at just 9.7 stone over the course of 11 months.
She started by replacing her breakfast with the low calorie shakes, and then swapped them for her dinner too, having two a day to cut back on calories.
However, British dieters wanting to try it out for themselves will be disappointed as the shakes are not yet available in the UK.
So far the Slim & Trim shakes are only available in Aldi’s Australia stores.
