Almased replacement meal shake
Have you heard or tried Almased replacement meal shakes? I have heard good things about those but I'm afraid of the weight coming back on if I stop drinking them They are quiet expansive. I figured I could have 1-2 on my Up day and one on my DD since it's about 240 cal per serving. What do u guys think??

I've never heard of them. They sound high in calories though.
JUDDD changed my life. It transformed my health, gave me freedom and restored my confidence.
JUDDD is very simple, very livable and very flexible. JUDDD allows weight loss and life to happen simultaneously.

There's no substitution for real food. Just sayin.
I've never heard of them but I have yet to see one that actually has much nutritional value. They are usually just filled with useless fillers, synthetic chemicals and stuff u don't need for an expensive price.
Maybe some homemade smoothies?

I've also read that our bodies don't "register" calories in drinks - that we're still hungry for solids - that is, sodas, shakes, smoothies, juices, etc. don't satiate you for long. I think that chewing your food fills you up - for example, I can't imagine eating a pound of raw spinach, but in a smoothie it would likely be not much ...
I've been low-carbing since 01/01/1994 (weighed >200#) - reached my goal weight in 1995 (125#) - maintained with a few blips (gaining up to 160#) along the way - lost weight on HCG but hated the no-fat! - now up about 10 pounds and looking for a solution!
