Delicious and Effective I learned about HMR through Peacehealth Hospital and i wanted to try the products on my own to determine if I needed to pay hundreds of dollars a week for the program. I will buy again. I really dont mind using this flavor everyday. Once a week, Nutrisystem delivers your meals and snacks to your home, and you supplement them with your own fresh food purchases. Great meal replacement shake I wanted to wait until I finished the entire container before I listed my review.
I take the shake for breakfast, work out and try to have a reasonable dinner. That has helped but recently I started incorporating Naturabest Advanced Forskolin and i am finally seeing faster results and losing the extra pounds and burning fat.
This is an all natural supplement and it gave my metabolism the boost it needed. See all customer reviews. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Get fast, free shipping with Amazon Prime. Excellent shipping and service! I love using body by Vi because I know it works, I lost 40lbs my first 90 day challenge! I am using these as a meal replacement for 2 meals a day since I am trying to lose weight.
After 5 days I have lost 7. I do walk 4. For healthy snacks I've been eating a piece of fruit banana, apple, etc. I did do some trial and error to determine what worked for me from a taste perspective and have provided details below.
I've tried them all This is by far the best tasting and keeps me feeling satisfied. In my opinion it beats out Advocare, Shakeology, and Fit Miss, etc. I don't mix up any fancy smoothies, its great with black coffee or even just water. I plan to purchase regularly. Great Taste - but put it in a plastic container! This stuff is very yummy. It has a good consistency and little to no aftertaste of the normal protein powders. If I could take away a half star for packaging a would.
Nothing to do with taste - that's 5 stars. However, the resealable zip top doesn't work because powder gets stuck in it I tape it shut everyday. I'm usually rushing around in the morning making this shake and I find it's hard to reseal and also to scoop out without making a mess - a plastic container with rigid sides and a lid would definitely be better. I'm not sure why I have such a hard time with this package, I'm an adult! Most of the time I end up with some on the counter that I have to scoop bag in the bag or on the floor that the dog gets to enjoy.
I just wish it was cheaper. I use it so often to make protein bars but can't justify the highly price protein.
For my bars, I use: I think you should at least try it Okay, so my initial thoughts on this First, for a one pound bag I thought that is a bit pricey, but when I actually received the bag I was surprised at how much larger a one pound bag is than what I was visioning. Okay, the pouch is nice, inviting, and looks appealing as a consumer. Next, comes the smell test.
As soon as I opened this up I was overwhelmed with the smell of cake It smells just like a cake mix, it truly smells amazing.
So then, of course I had to try it. The powder blends beautifully, it is not gritty, it is just wonderful if you mix it with some almond milk. I did add a tsp. This stuff is so far superior to Perfect Keto. Not only is it from grass-fed cows, but it also contains collagen and butter. The consistency is very smooth, which probably comes from the butter.
It doesn't separate if it sits for awhile. The flavor is also fantastic, kind of chocolate caramel, and because it's sweetened with monk fruit, doesn't have that bitter stevia aftertaste - it almost tastes like there is a bit of real sugar in it - not overly sweet and cloying but just enough to make it taste good. The vast majority of the ingredients aren't too nefarious, unlike almost all of the other whey products on the market.
I love that there is so much in this little package collagen, MCT, grass-fed butter! I smelled it while opening and didn't have high hopes about the chocolate flavor, but I was wrong.
I generally make shakes with spinach, avocado, cashew milk and protein powder. I assumed this would be a rather bland shake. The flavor is quite nice. I will buy again. I calculated the price for this against making my own powder with similar ingredients and it cannot be done. Making my own, without adding in cost for cocoa and sweetener and not having grass fed butter added in would only save a few pennies! Deceptive servings The protein tastes great and mixes easily. My gripe is it claims to be a jar with 24 servings.
The standard for me when looking for a serving of protein post workout is around 20g. This is only 10g. Save yourself a ton of money and buy the MCT, grass fed collagen, and grass fed protien separately and mix yourself. That'll also give you the flexibility of fine tuning the fat to protein ratio you're looking for. I've used this for 2 weeks, and have even skipped some days and so far have lost 8 pounds. Combined with a good calorie dinner and exercise this shake works wonders.
I really dont mind using this flavor everyday. I mix with vanilla almond milk I used the fremch vanilla mix for months, it helped me loose about 40lbs. I continue drinking the shakes to maintain. I mix with vanilla almond milk, I wish I had tried it sooner! Ordering my 2nd one today: Great meal replacement shake I wanted to wait until I finished the entire container before I listed my review. I purchased this to find a way to easily have a "meal" at my desk as I am tied to my desk most of the day with no time to leave for lunch or breaks.
I found myself not eating most of the day and then eating a ton when I got home for dinner. The price is good, shipping is fast through Amazon and you don't have to go through an Herbalife consultant for the product. The cookies and cream was a good flavor I tried shaking longer and adding more liquid.
It make it more "fun" to clean my shaker but other than that, I really didn't mind. This stuff works great. I started using Keto1 a month ago while on a low carbohydrate high fat diet. I have struggled to lose weight in the past and have not had much success. I did not weigh myself during that month, but I stuck close to my diet and drank the Keto1 daily.
I was not hungry during this time and actually felt like I was spoiling myself and eating too much. I was shocked today when I weighed myself and found that I had lost 17 lbs. I found that for taste purposes that mixing the Keto1 with 12 oz of pomegranate juice, one scoop of Keto1 and one liter of bottled water it suited me best. The only source of carbohydrate was the pomegranate juice with Keto1 for a total of 57 grams of carbohydrate daily.
I don't have a ketone meter, but this product is by far the tastiest exogenous ketones I have ever had! I have had all brands zhou, perfect keto, etc.. I use it twice a day, one scoop before workouts in the morning, I fast until around 2pm in the afternoon, and it keeps the hunger pains away. I usually will have a second scoop before dinner too.
I have noticed major differences in my body fat, my mood and my mental clarity ever since I switched to the keto diet. This is a drink that kickstarts you into ketogenesis where you begin to use body fat as fuel rather than carbs. It's not for everyone, some would find it difficult to sustain for months or years on end. I have been at it for a month and week now and my body fat has decreased from double to single digits and I am continuing to add lean muscle mass from a diet high in protein and fats.
Tastes kinda different at first but not bad, you get used to it. Update, June 16, This stuff is an amazing tool. I don't know if it's directly responsible for my success, but it IS working like it says it should. It says to use 2 tbs per shake for "essential fatty acids".
I usually don't and that cuts a lot of calories. But the olive oil adds a wonderful smoothness to the shake. The graininess practically disappeared. Be sure to use a light tasting olive oil. I haven't actually done the 3-a-day plan yet. When I do, I'll probably use the oil. That would put your calories for the shakes at about a day. Good to not dip too far below that.
At first, I was "worried" about not eating solids. I thought I would be hungry. Use if your love affair with food is over This product works. It works especially well if your battle with food is due to poor choices and high caloric intake. I used the three shakes per day for three days to start and found the first day the most difficult.
The taste is gritty but not unbearably so. I had to deal with my constant thoughts of eating by distracting myself with other tasks. By the third day I did not feel deprived and felt confident continuing forward with the plan. I started on June 3 and after 23 days I have lost 25 pounds. I noticed a change in my energy level and also some much needed room in my waistband.

She and I—with around twenty other women and the occasional man —met in a church basement on Saturday mornings. The Points system had recently been introduced, and for me it worked. Nidetch had done something revolutionary but uncomplicated: Over the years, I have attended meetings with three different cheerleading leaders; two were great, and one was just too much for me.
Weight Watchers implemented a points system in the s, where foods were given a numerical value based on nutritional profile. So then, how does Weight Watchers work? Starting from the beginning, the program included a very specific eating system and over the years there have been a number of iterations. But the introduction of the original Weight Watchers Points system —currently referred to as SmartPoints—kicked the specifics into super-user-friendly. It came into being from Weight Watchers Limited in the United Kingdom, where two women invented, developed, and patented the Points system calculator.
Using an algorithm that calculated calories, fats, proteins, and carbs, it would have a couple of iterations, too, as more was learned about nutrition and exercise science. But the underlying system, of counting foods as values based on nutrition, was genius then and it remains the cornerstone today. The newest program, launched in , is dubbed Beyond the Scale.
Weight Watchers says it wants people to not diet per se, but adopt a Weight Watchers lifestyle:. Our proven program is not a diet. Yes, you will lose weight. The current program is pretty simple, in that every food has a value. SmartPoints are calculated based on calories, saturated fat, sugar, and protein. You simply adhere to your allotted points. There are no forbidden foods.
And that phrase alone is for some the ah-ha! Weight Watchers explains that it takes the complex nutritional information of a food and gives it a single number—the SmartPoints value—so people can make smarter food choices while eating the stuff they like to eat. Well, some of it anyway. And, each week you get bonus points—which, when I did Weight Watchers in my last go-round, I banked and then pigged out on Friday nights. Just Ben, Jerry, and me.
Anyway, the idea of points is smart, easy, and doable. And I mean not just parking further away from the store entrance. Get your heart rate up and keep it up with fat-burning, good-for-your-heart exercise.
I swim albeit not enough. You can walk, run, jog, row, climb, spin, bike, step, jump, skip, kick—you get the idea. And do it at least 30 minutes every day—or at least most days of the week—as best as you can fit in your already ridiculously hectic life.
Actually, make it your time; take 30 minutes, put headphones on, and do it. And, it turns out, even during the most seemingly mundane of tasks, you earn FitPoints which you add to your total points for the day. FitPoints is also a smart idea. Weight Watchers explains it this way:. FIT is about getting back in touch with your body. Weight Watchers has several dozen videos, workouts, demos, fitness plans, and challenges.
And all of this can be managed on a handy, popular app. The Weight Watchers mobile app for smartphones and devices helps dieters to track weight loss progress, manage SmartPoints and FitPoints, shop for and plan meals, and offers social networking with other members. Every step you take, every bite you eat, kept track of.
The mobile app for Android has almost , reviews on Google Play with an overall rating of 4. Reviewers find it easy to use, convenient, and it helps dieters stay on track.
Similarly, on iTunes, more than 2, real people reviewed the current iteration of the app and gave it a close to 5 stars. Even the previous versions of the app—with 12, reviews—agreed it was effective, easy to use, and helped Weight Watchers dieters keep track.
On the Weight Watchers app you can live chat with a coach and—for a lot of people who are focused on the fitness in the program and want a fuller health-tech experience—toggle to the Activity tab to your track activeness.
And if you have an Apple Watch, wireless scales, and an activity tracker—like Up by Jawbone or Apple Health, for example—you can connect them to your Weight Watchers account. Along with Weight Watchers online, a virtual and brick-and-mortar support network yes, there are still meetings, absolutely!
W hat does Weight Watchers cost? A little secret from me: Once you have done Weight Watchers, you know how to do Weight Watchers—so as some say, you can do it without paying. Remember I said that accountability, motivation, community, and support are the secrets to Weight Watchers? In fact, Weight Watchers itself—even in this day and age where everything is online—recommends the plan you go with is the one with meetings: But, as of fall of , there are three plans:. Just read the fine print. If you follow it.
If you fall off the tracks, you just get back on. When I did my first round with Weight Watchers, I lost 4 pounds the first week and I have to tell you, I remember that day like it was yesterday.
