I followed instructions to the letter. I did this for one month, three shakes a day for two weeks. Day 1-6, three shakes day 7, two shakes and evening meal. The second 2 weeks, two shakes daily, one evening meal. After 28 days I had lost 12 lbs...great. BUT, was I so glad it was over.
The taste, it's chalky. The flavors are awful. And really expensive.
So I tried a little warm milk rather than water, yuk. I tried almond milk, a little better but not much. I added fruit, ok but now you're adding sugar. Not a good thing. The only way I could've done this, for me. I added hot chocolate powder to the mix or vanilla essence. Then the flavor was palatable. But the chalky texture doesn't go away.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
