I like so many other people are trying to lose weight this year (like I have been the last 5). I would like to get rid of my stomach weight after having my youngest son- who is now 5, wa-wah-waaah. My mom bought me 3 cases of the Equate Ultra Weight Loss Shakes. They come in three different flavors: chocolate, french vanilla, and strawberries 'n cream. I got one of each. Personally I think they all tasted pretty good. Although French Vanilla was my least favorite of the three. The directions tell you to replace one or two meals with a shake, or they can be used as a snack for in between meals. The only problem with this for me is that they are just a drink. They do not help me feel full at all. I am not extremely overweight, but I am not that active either. I do try to eat sensibly- most of the time. These shakes do not make me feel full so all drink them for are snacks. I drink a shake and 30 minutes later I am hungry. Maybe I just do not have strong will-power but if I replace 2 meals a day by dinner time I am starving! They are loaded with nutrients and vitamins so I guess that is good. I say give these a try if you want. Personally they do not work for me.
