yes, I joked with my mom, "It's not like I want to get slim ... fast!" Being concerned about losing weight myself (at a whopping 94 lbs) I checked the nutritional content of Slimfast versus Boost. They were pretty close nutritionally, but a few less calories and a little less protein (don't recall the exact difference but something like 10 vs 15). Since I use it as a supplement, I figure it's ok. I just need the extra calories and nutrition.
