I'm curious about other SlimFasters calorie % breakdowns. Mine seem to run about 50% carb, 25% protein, 25% fat. How do the rest of yours run?
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

I've been wondering the same thing. I'm not on slimfast, but my figures on this site are showing 53% carbs, 16% protein and 31% fat. I can't adjust my carbs too much as I'm diabetic (and have just about got my blood sugars stable), but I'm wondering whether this looks like a healthy diet. I know that when I look at my plate, it seems to be mostly potatoes; and I'm wondering if adding more meat/fish to balance that would be feasible (I'm still hungry most days). Or even if more protein and less fat (or vice-versa) would be beneficial.

Did you get an answer to this one? Or can anyone else offer a suggestion?

I'm not slimfast, but for me what works best for me is that after I get my protein (1g/pound of lean body mass per day) I try to divide my extra calories more or less evenly between carbs and fat. Some days more, some days less, but it works out on average.

A lot of diabetics say they do well on a lower carb/higher fat and protein diet, but you'd have to read up on that and maybe work with your doctor to find out if it's right for you. If you do try something like that, you should probably phase in any changes gradually.
