At the beginning, I weighed 235 pounds. Two weeks later I weighed 228 lbs. This a progress ongoing as I'm enjoying it. The flavor is acceptable. For breakfast, I mixed it with fruits in blender contained 8 oz water and a couple of ice cubes. I believed I'm on track to achieve my desired weight of 200 pounds by next August 2018.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
