"Very" Low Calorie?

Taste:

Effectiveness:

No issues with taste, mixability, it makes a decent tasting shake with just water, and takes care of my appetite for a good few hours. My problem is that this is described as "Very Low Calorie Diet meal replacement" - which anyone would assume to be (a) lower calories than, and (b) contain less fat/sugars than the same sellers "Low Calorie Meal Replacement"..... Wrong on both counts, actually! Side-by-side, the chocolate flavour of both the Low and Very Low have identical calories, yet maddeningly the Low variant contains less fats, saturated fats, sugar and salt than the Very Low! What on earth is the point of marketing this product as the Very Low variant when it has more of the "bad stuff" in it than the supposedly less slimline version??? As a final thought, the website and packaging suggests the serving is two scoops (51g). Yeeeeah, no. Having zeroed digital scales with an empty scoop, one levelled scoop of this powder weighs 47g. So don't throw two scoops in, or you're looking at the best part of 400 calories, and nearly 30g of sugar!

At 200 calories per serving I have 3 of these throughout the day and a small meal of an evening and am still only consuming approx 1000 calories per day which is more than enough for me to be losing a couple of pounds per week. The shakes keep me really full and I mix with approx 600ml of water and the shake is still nice and thick.

Straight off this helps when trying to reduce daily calorie intake it's seems to suppress my appetite and gives me all the nutrition I need from a meal. Also tried banana, strawberry and salted caramel and the salted caramel is amazing, the other 2 taste as expected. But please be aware 2 level scoops would actually be 88g not 51g. Meaning you will be eating more than 200cal per serving and you will go through a bag alot quicker. I use a set of kitchen scales to measure the 51g out (1 level scoop and a bit).

The supplement itself would be worth looking at, but 14 g of sugar per serving? Are you kidding me? Basically all the carbs you get, are from sugar.

I have previously used Low Calorie Meal Replacement however I have ordered this new formula and I'm extremely pleased. The texture is really smooth and creamy and the taste is even better than previous versions of this product. Using this product to replace breakfast and lunch has aided me to loose a considerable amount of weight as well as maintain a healthy life style. I would recommend to someone who is looking to drop weight but struggles with hunger throughout the day as this really does fill you up. I use one scoop twice a day with water and have a low calorie dinner allowing myself 1 snack no more than 100 calories. I'm very happy with the results.

Excellent product, no gritty aftertaste as some other market brands, lost over a stone in first 3 weeks of using it, being a Diabetic I was a little concerned how it would affect my numbers, but I was happily surprised to see my numbers come down from the high 9's to the low 6's in a couple of days. Thoroughly recommended.

I was very wary of buying a vanilla flavoured powder because I don't usually like it, I usually opt for chocolate but because I'm trying to lose some fat and weight I don't want chocolate anymore! But this vanilla powder is really tasty and it mixes really well, my preference is 300ml water to 2 scoops so it's not too thick and it's delicious, I'm on 2 a day. Vanilla also goes well with anything you may want to mix in with it to change it up a bit I usually throw a shot or 2 of espresso into mine or a teaspoon of all natural peanut butter. Overall I love this powder and teamed up with exercise and one healthy meal a day it's already working wonders for me

Goes Well With:

Espresso, peanut butter or just on it's own! Its oerfect either way

Great product, tastes good, thick and filling. My only problem with this item is discovering that the measurements are wrong 2 scoops is not one serving actually a scoop and a bit is actually. Be warned. Other than that i really like this and im reordering now lol.

Goes Well With:

-1 for breakfast with a large black coffee then chased with 400mls of water atleast. -Same again for lunch. -balanced meal for dinner. -if desperate for something sweet (like me lol) have one for pudding mixed with less water to make it thicker BUT dont do this every night lol.

Very nice taste which is similar to a strawberry milkshake, although it's very very sweet, it could do with less sweetener, my personal taste would be half. Still tastes creamy when made with water. Serving size however is deceiving, as it says to use two scoops, 51g, however when weighed, one scoop was 47g, so if you use the scoops as a measurement, it will be almost double the recommended amount!! As this is supposed to be a meal replacement those calories add up!!

I've been taking this for months now. 2 a day with a light meal for dinner. I haven't seen much more than a maintaining my current weight. THEN I read about the 2 scoops vs the user reviews. I think the devil is in the detail. The website reads serving suggestion 2 scoops. Perhaps it means 2 scoops per day. 1 scoop with water for breakfast shake and 1 scoop with water for a lunch shake. Anyway I've invested now so I'm going to change to 1 heaped scoop not 2 per shake and see if I can shift some weight. Fingers crossed.

Vlcd meal replacement has now replaced the low calorie meal replacement and is 3 x more expensive. The older low calorie meal replacement has roughly the same ingredients with 202 calories per serving and now the new "very low calorie meal replacement" has 200 calories per serving and costs 3 x as much. Just let that sink in for a moment. After a year of using my protein I think it's time to go elsewhere as this is a massive rip off. BUYERS BEWERE!!

I used these VLCD shakes as part of the so-called Newcastle diet in an attempt to reverse my type 2 diabetes. I lost 10kg in 8 weeks which is on target, and I have to say these shakes made the task a lot easier than I was expecting. They taste pretty good - as other reviewers have said the chocolate's on the sweet side and I find the strawberry a little artificial but I love the vanilla and salted caramel flavours. I use a stick blender to mix with water which gives a really creamy consistency, and I weigh the amount of powder because, honestly, a scoop is useless as a measuring tool. No luck yet with losing the diabetes but it's no hardship to lose a little more weight using these shakes so I shall continue.

I've tried my different meal replacement but this one is a game changer, I blend it with half a bag of spinach and that gives me a perfect start to the morning with a bit of creatine and that gives me the power and strength to do three hours in the gym loving it, you must try this I'm usually quite a hungry person but this really really suppresses my appetite I'm not usually one for doing reviews but I feel when I find something good it's important to share it with others on the same journey hope this helps anyone trying to lose weight.

I ordered the chocolate flavour, the taste is quite nice but way too sweet and I have a serious sweet tooth. Had it for breakfast, mixed it with water and few ice cubes and the shake was thick enough. It kept me full about 4 hours. Itse a good product, just bit too sweet for my liking.

Being very sceptical about this form of product it was not until a friend told me of their success that I decided to try it for myself. I have been using the Vanilla and Strawberry flavours for about 5 months and have to date lost 34kg. I take 2 or 3 shakes a day depending on my shifts and eat a healthy main meal most days. Excercise has also played a key part in my weight loss but I do no more than 40 mins on an eliptical stridder 5 or 6 times a week. Great product, great taste and it even curbs my sweet tooth.

Goes Well With:

The Vanilla goes well with skimmed milk. The Strawberry goes well with skimmed milk and also just with water.

Been taking this for a couple of months now. Mixes well with water and the chocolate tastes superb. Trouble is, I'm getting hungry soon after. Although I'm picking my 'snack' foods well such as prepared chicken, turkey, lean ham and beef to nibble on, I am not seeing much if anything at all regarding weight loss. I still weigh the same as a couple of months ago, it's just maintaining my weight. Plus, when nearly everything else was on offer plus additional discount, the VLCD was not. Very disappointed at that and the performance.
