First of all, I am not a health nut nor am I a weight trainer. With that out of the way, I am a 51 year old woman who, with her husband, has decided to start making changes in my life to be healthier, which includes making our lives more ‘natural’ and rethinking what we are eating. Fewer carbohydrates, more protein and basically more awareness. When I got the opportunity to try this Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, I jumped at it since it seemed it would help us along on this journey to better health. There are a lot of great things to be said about this product, and very few negative things. First of all, this package is HUGE, comes with the scoop you need, smells great as soon as you open it, and once you figure out a good balance between liquid and the powder, it actually tastes great. I’ve tried other protein drinks in the past that were quite nasty tasting, and as I took my first good drink of this, I braced myself for that ‘taste’. It wasn’t there. It just tasted like chocolate. The only negative I found with this entire product is that…as a novice, I had no idea how to use it, and the instructions on the package aren’t as clear as I need. It says to use twice a day which is on the label, and there is a chart with different weights listed and then number of scoops, and unless I really don’t understand this stuff, it looks like I should be using 4-5 scoops of this stuff for every meal I use it for? I don’t mind if that is the case because I like things super chocolatey. I don’t use that many scoops, but I do keep adding powder to get the taste I want. And one glass of this fills me up for several hours. I just wish the instructions were more clear on the package.
