YES!

There are low carb slim fasts I believe if you want a shake. I am not sure how many carbs they have. There are also Atkins shakes and I know that there are also many powdered low carb shake mixes.

Yes. Definitely avoid ANYTHING that high in sugar.
You would be far better off eating "regular food." Have a look through our recipe forums for ideas on quick and easy snacks.

Stay away from slim fast! Their low-carb one tastes SO nasty. Atkins makes a shake that's a lot better. The only flavor I can put up with is the strawberry, but it works for early mornings where I need to wake up my metabolism and don't want to eat breakfast. =)
