Do you crave for something yummy and appetizing during your keto diet? Read our SlimFast keto fat bombs review to find our whetever we found a great snack for you!
If you are doing the ketogenic diet or watching your weight, you might have already noticed that one of the hardest things to do is keep track of your macros. However, knowing that you will not be able to eat anything sweet for a long while makes the feeling all the more dreadful. As the ketogenic diet grows in popularity, an increasing number of companies and brands have been marketing their “keto-friendly products”.
Some of them try to fill the huge gap in the keto sweet treats market, while other brands try the “fat bombs” niche. Indeed, most of them do not taste as if you are eating a regular snack. So, finding one that does becomes more of a duty than fulfilling the dreams of your sweet tooth.
Many keto dieters around me have been complaining about this. They complain as they do not have much time to prepare healthy and yummy keto cookies, snacks, treats, and fat bombs. Moreover, they cannot find a good equivalent of their regular snacks. SlimFast is a brand that tries to ease the lives of those who are on dieting, with its line of diet-friendly products.
They have diabetic weight loss products, shakes, meal replacement bars, and creamers as well as fat bomb snacks which we are going to get into detail today. Yet, before we move on to there, we would like to give you a piece of quick information about what a fat bomb is.
What is a fat bomb?
A fat bomb is a term that swiftly came into our daily lives thanks to the high popularity of the ketogenic diet. It is now accepted by the majority of cardiologists that good fat like coconut oil or butter is much better than low-fat spreads.
When we prepare it at home, we usually use ingredients like coconut oil, nuts, and seeds as they are suitable for the ketogenic diet. Such high-fat ingredients trigger a process in our body which is called ketosis. It is a state of starvation where the body starts to burn fat instead of carbohydrates as we refrain from eating carbohydrates at all.
However, not all of us have time to prepare yummy fat bombs at home. Some of us want to eat something quick right out of its pack and move on to their lives while not thinking about what to cook to fill their stomach. So, in such hard times, we want it within arm’s reach.
SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs
SlimFast, as we mentioned before, succors at the right moment thanks to its good range of varieties. Yet, some people keep asking if it is keto-friendly or if it will spike your insulin levels through the roof. The answer is simple. It is keto-friendly and it will not change your insulin levels drastically.
What are the types of SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs
There are primarily two types of SlimFast Keto Fat Bombs. The first one is the snack bars that you can eat and move on your life. Then, the second one is the fat bomb shots which you can take a shot while at home watching a movie or working at your workplace.
Both are quite tasty and the only difference is one you can eat and the other you can drink. Let’s get to its details.
SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Snacks
One of the two products in the SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb production line is the snacks. It is a delectable snack that you can eat even when you are not on a keto diet. This is a very healthy product that makes the lives of keto dieters easy. As you know or have experienced, the first days of keto are so confusing. This is due to people are changing their habits and they need to count how many carbs they take in a day.
However, you can choose to make it easy by relying on other products. As you get more experienced in keto, you will begin to prepare your food and probably need such products on the go. Yet, you should note that a pack of snacks is a good assistant for your body in achieving ketosis quickly. If you want to optimize your keto diet in early steps, consider this as well.
The thing I did not like about the snacks is that it has below-average packaging. Even at 60 degrees outside, the chocolate part melts. It must be some bad pack design.
One thing that the snacks are good at is its nutrition facts. Since the taste depends on the taster, I believe that we will need to get more into the nutrition facts. Because facts do not change from person to person.
There are 14 servings in one container and these figures are for one serving (one cup). In one serving, there are 90 calories and a total of 8 grams of fat 6 grams of which is saturated and no trans fat in it. There is no cholesterol or any sugar other than erythritol in a cup. The total carbohydrate count is only 7 grams and 3 grams of them come from dietary fiber and 3 from erythritol.
As this is not a design for sportspeople, these snacks do not contain much protein, sitting only at 1 gram.
When you compare it with other products in the market, you will see that it is quite the average. Normally, you see the products have about 6 to 7 grams of carbohydrate and about 8 to 10 grams of fat. So, nutrition-wise, you will be on par with the rest of the market when you buy and eat this.
I noticed this brand for the first time as I was looking for a snack with the peanut butter. Well, I am a total peanut butter buff. Therefore, not being able to eat every type of peanut butter while being on my keto diet was troublesome for me. I remember myself getting closer and closer to the blasting point until I found this.
The other brands did not fulfill my expectations with their peanut butter flavors. However, I did not feel too much difference between the real one and this one. Or maybe, I was just dreaming, that is something I will never know.
However, there are other flavors of this fat bomb. These are caramel cups, chocolate caramel nut clusters, and mint cups. I have not tried any of them apart from peanut butter cups as they were quite sufficient for me. However, if they are of the same taste like the peanut butter cups, I think they will work well throughout your diet.
SlimFast Keto Fat Bomb Shots
Apart from edible snacks, SlimFast has also produced some really good refreshing fat bomb shots. Just like the snacks, they are also keto-friendly and it will not spike your insulin levels. If you are trying to find something refreshing to add to your keto diet, this might be the solution for you.
The taste is very good and you feel satiated after drinking a box of it. The bomb shots can be a real lifesaver if you are going to a meeting with your friends who are going out for a pub. You want to catch up with them but do not want to drink as they contain lots of carbohydrates. Simply take a box with you, ask the waiter or waitress and it looks like a fancy shot glass. I know because I did it before, yikes!
Just like the snack one, shots are rich in fat, poor in carbs, as well. They have the size of a real shot which is 1 oz. So, the following figures are for one shot.
The total fat count is 10 grams while a box of shots contains about 100 calories. All the fat inside the box is saturated which makes up 50 percent of your daily saturated fat need.
The carbohydrate is even much lower than the snack. There is a total of 3 grams of carbohydrates while 2 grams of them are erythritol. That means there is only 1 gram of carbohydrate you will take from a box of the SlimFast Fat Bomb Shots.
I like the tangy orange crème one as I like to add it to my coffee. However, there is the salted caramel crème version, as well. Whichever you like, just try not to drink more than a box a day.
- Very low on carb, especially shots
- Delicious and savory
- A good alternative to home-made snacks
- Inadequate packaging
As a general rule, I suggest people who have started on their diet some snacks instead of cooking at home. It is more like a transition period. So, this one is a tasty, lovely, and affordable transition tool. A good product!
