Pro tip: There are no quick fixes when it comes to dropping weight.

Dieting is a practice as old as time. Back in the 1990s, one of the most popular products for people who wanted to lose weight were those arguably yummy SlimFast shakes.

Ironic that a weight-control product tasted so good, right?

And although Selorm and Maya were way too young to have dieted in the ’90s, they agreed to put themselves through a week of these fad diets from back in the day, because they’re cool like that.

Maya remembered how her “abuela” used to brag about being on the Atkins diet while she chugged a SlimFast. Ha!

Surprise! The ladies found out which diet they would be tackling. Selorm got the Atkins diet, while Maya drank them SlimFasts for an entire week.

Didn't sound fair at first, did it? Selorm didn't think so either.

Maya thought she’d be chilling, sipping on some tasty shakes, but in reality, she also had to consume “sensible diets” and exercise regularly.

Maya thought she'd be chilling, sipping on some tasty shakes, but in reality, she also had to consume "sensible diets" and exercise regularly.

She could drink a shake as a meal replacement, and could have three snacks a day, too. Although nothing was technically off limits, there was (of course) no junk food allowed. Yes, that meant no deep dish pizza either, Maya. Womp womp.

Selorm’s Atkins diet consisted of lowering her carb intake, lowering the amount of sugar she consumed, and eating lots more protein and vegetables.

The Atkins diet seemed a bit more manageable…or did it? “I get to eat whatever I want, and you are drinking water.”

Okay, so on day one (yes, on the first day) Selorm slipped when Maya caught her munching on a banana and peanut butter.

Her excuse: “I'm hungry.” Don't judge! We've all been there.

Meanwhile, Maya went home to Arizona on day two, where she had to make a store run after forgetting her SlimFast back home, ya’ll!

Rookie mistake?

When day three rolled around, Maya was really feelin’ her SlimFast, until her dad reminder her she couldn’t have any of the dinner he was cooking. Ugh!

She even added some exercise to her regiment, complete with a 90s workout outfit.

On the fourth day Selorm was still struggling, but then started getting into the swing of things by cooking dishes like salmon with roasted tomatoes on it. Nice!

“I realized that some of the things that I ate for the Kardashian diet easily fit into this diet.”

Hallelujah! When the final day of their diet came, Maya realized that, although drinking the shake was super easy (yes, they were also yummy), she actually wanted to do more than just sip.

She wanted to get educated on actual nutrition instead of just cracking open a shake a few times a day.

And Selorm learned that when she tried to eat healthier, she had to go full throttle, and set up a solid game plan.

“I got quinoa, ya'll. That shit has a lot of iron in it!”

Great job, ladies! They made it through the challenge. Now, what should they try next in Rad or Fad?
