General Diet Plans and Questions - Anyone use Carnation Instant Breakfast Sugar Free to lose weight?

I need to lose about 15# and would like something quick and easy to substitute for a couple meals a day. I was thinking of using Carnation Instant Breakfast Sugar Free for breakfast and lunch. I would then have a high protein, low carb meal for dinner - protein like chicken or beef, salad or vege. Has anyone used this successfully to lose weight?

Sounds nutritionally unsound and a recipe for disaster ... we need to learn healthy lifestyle, not fad diets, to lose weight and maintain it.

Hold on a minute. If carnation instant breakfast has good quality nutrition (I do not know if it does ), but if so,why would it not be a good meal replacement.

It is easy for anyone to say you have to learn balance,blah blah but if I recall correctly, consumer reports said meal replacements were a very good adjunct to weight loss.

If some pounds are lost, then it would be motivating to go into the balanced meal approach. Don't knock anyones attempt to try an alternative approach to at least make a start.
The plan would not be to my liking but good luck with your efforts.
