Default Meal Replacement Shakes

Do they work? Are any better than others? I am having a hard time and I thought if I went with one of these, I could kick start, see some results and feel better about my diet.

For me, yes.

I have been doing Optifast and have had very positive results. It is not for everyone but I found it very easy to stick to.

I have a whole thread about my experience with it from the very beginning in my signature if you want to look into it.

Something to remember is that optifast is a doctor supervised diet. We do not recommend users to go under 1200 calories without doctor supervision or at least a diet that was created by medical professionals (like medifast).

Meal replacement shakes are one way that people reduce their calories. There isn't a magic to it but some people find it as a way that they are able to easily track calories and lose weight. You can also do meal replacement shakes at a higher calorie level, like those that are well in normal weight loss range (1200-1800 for females, slightly higher for males).

It depends if you want to replace a meal with a lower calorie meal replacement or not. Some people would rather just eat lower calorie meals than drink shakes. Other people find shakes useful.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
