Carroll,
I will agree that low glycemic foods are definitely the best at fighting sugar induced cravings. Low glycemic foods generally include protein, fiber and fat. A lot of dietary programs these days are focusing on low glycemic index foods rather than the low fat foods of the past because of the benefits of keeping you fuller longer. One thing I think is important is adding fiber to your diet because it does keep you fuller longer. I also personally recommend real food over shakes but I do drink protein shakes from time to time for the convenience factor.

Since you mention that they "have been ranked very highly w/any of the research teams", I'm wondering can you point us to some research on the products? As I said before, when I did a search, every site I found was trying to sell the products rather than trying to give an unbiased view of the products.
