Celebrity Slim offers a range of diet shakes to help you transform your body fast or gradually. If you’re on one of the Celebrity Slim weight management programs (Rapid, Trim or Maintain), you can substitute Rapid with Trim shakes as they are nutritionally equivalent. But you do need two Dairy Free shakes in place of one Rapid or Trim shake. The program itself is unique because there’s no calorie counting or points system, and it can be used anywhere at any time. Basically, you eat up to 6 small meals a day (or replace meals with the shakes) instead of 2-3 large ones.

Cost per shake: $1 to $3
