Love these!!! Starting the low carb diet and have been wildy succesful with it. I am 25, and after a sudden weight gain of 30 lbs, I decided to make a change after almost hitting 200 lbs. I use these as a meal replacement, usually breakfast or lunch. I love love love the taste. The smell is a little weird but I got over that quickly once I tasted them. Not only does it curb my appettite, but fufills my sweet tooth craving. (I actually even feel full afterwards) Considering sweets are my weakness, this was the answer I needed. I was worried when I read the reviews about the expired or damaged packaging but I had neither of these issues, and my shakes don't expire until next year. Will be ordering again! Ps I've lost 11 lbs in two weeks!!
