At the risk of being out of place because I am a woman in the men's corner
, here's my humble opinion...
I used to drink a lot of meal replacement shakes, not this brand but a different one called Medifast at the recommendation of a doctor. Some of the shakes tasted better than others, most were quite filling but also expensive financially and I was replacing two meals a day with the shakes. I eventually ditched the plan because I craved real food. I did lose some weight with Medifast and I gained some of it back. I personally think it is more important to eat nutritiously. It did help me get rid of some pounds and for some people it can work great but everyone is different.
