I actually got my first container as a gift, and I use it as a substitute for snacking. After dinner when I'm hungry I drink a glass instead, and it fills me up. I have lost a total of 12 lbs since I started this two months ago. I have the greens/peach one which I drink in the morning, and the berry cleanse that I drink mid-day or at night. I'm looking forward to trying them all.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
