Hi Sue! I have tried the Scan diet and did not like it. The shakes are not very good -kind of chalky- and it's not the same as eating your meal. I wouldn't recommend it. If you want to do a shake diet I think you would be better off with Slim Fast because they taste better. I did lose some weight with the Scan diet , but I didn't do it long enough for it to show a great weight loss. I quit after about 5 pounds because I missed chewing my food.

Hope that helps!
Take care,

Hi Sue,
I just wanted to put in my 2 cents worth here. I haven't tried the scan diet. I looked in to it at my local GNC store but it reminded me way to much of the Cambridge Diet - remember that - it was huge in the middle to late 80's. After looking it over, I just thought, "no way, I'm not going all the way back to the Cambridge Diet." From what the previous post said it sounds like it tastes about the same too.

Anyway, I know this post isn't to helpful but I thought I'd at least let you know what my first reaction to the product was. Since I haven't tried it though, I could be totally wrong.

Take care and good luck.
