After reading the reviews for this product I decided to try it. The reviewers who liked the product always added a little cinnamon. I have been replacing one meal a day with it for 5 days and have lost about 2 pounds; this is the little emotional/intellectual boost I need to keep me on track. I have to see some progress or I get discouraged. I also believe in the "setpoint" weight as I have not been able to budge lower than a certain number without absolutely starving myself. I blend 6 T in a blender with ice, soy milk, vanilla extract, dash cinnamon, drizzle of agave, drizzle of EVOO. Today I added 5 baby carrots which made it a little thicker & ups your fiber. This shake does not give me the headache I have gotten from other meal replacements that have too much sugar and not enough protein. I feel satisfied for hours and am not always contemplating my next meal. You have to experiment with a recipe that works for you.

I'm on my second canister. My Mom in law (62)and I (50) are both trying the product. I mix with fat free milk and add either strawberries or banana to curb the taste. I sometimes add to oj, cranberry & apple juices. However, Mom prefers to drink it straight. Taste is not unpleasant at all. I have lost 3 lbs in first week, she has lost 7. We have not done any exercise with it. Morning & lunch shakes, dinner chicken with veggies. I think these are great results for women our age so we are trying it for a second time.

    Comments about Almased Synergy Diet Powder, 17.6 oz:

    This stuff is ok. I have 10 pounds to lose after the holiday season from over-indulging, am on my 2nd can and have not lost any weight (but that is the norm for me on any diet, so I'm not blaming the product). Some days I replace 2 meals with it (with one healthy light meal), some days all 3. I mix 7-8 TB (I'm tall) in the blender with skim milk and a tiny bit of low-fat greek yogurt, vanilla, flax seed, a small bit of frozen fruit, banana, or unsweetened cocoa powder & a packet of fake sugar (like Splenda or whatever is around). It's not going to taste like a milkshake no matter how much you tweak it, but it's certainly not the worst protein-type drink I've ever consumed. It's palatable if doctored-up a bit. No side effects. It does seem to curb my appetite for the most part. The best thing for me is that I maintain my normal energy through the day (even through a daily workout & several dog walks) and don't get terrible headaches as I have on other things in the past. When I need 'real' chew-able food I grab an apple or some carrots. I don't feel like I'm ingesting toxic garbage when I drink this stuff, which is always a plus. The main negative is the price - stuff is wicked expensive for a not-large can. Not something I'd want to do indefinitely, but worth trying for the post-holiday pudge battle.

      Comments about Almased Synergy Diet Powder, 17.6 oz:

      My mom is a diabetic and I saw the Almased ad in one of my cooking magazines and thought we would give it a go. She likes to mix it into milk and smoothies. She uses way less than the recommended dose but it still goes fast. She has lost some weight but we purchased it mainly for an eating alternative when she feels like eating something unhealthy like ice cream. She loves it. If mom's happy, I'm happy.

              Comments about Almased Synergy Diet Powder, 17.6 oz:

              I started the product on July 26 and lost 10.4 pounds in exactly 2 weeks. I didn't do the 3 day cleanse as the program suggests, I actually extended that first part to 14 days (they suggest to extend that initial part up to 14 days if you have a lot of weight to loose but advise not to do it longer that that) and the results were good, much faster than WeightWatchers that I started in April and only helped loose 12 pounds in 15 weeks. I like the taste of my shakes, maybe because I'm not a fan of sweets. I prepare mine with water, a little bit of cinnamon and a teaspoon of flax seed oil all in a mini blender for 6 seconds. When I'm on the go or at work I do the same but in one of the blender cups (the ones with the ball inside). I haven't been able to live with 3 shakes a day because I get hungry, some days I drank up to 5 shakes but on average I lived on 4 shakes for these two weeks. I did eat for my birthday, very healthy and delicious food and that didn't affect the scale. It may seem a little pricey but when I compare to what I spend eating out it's not bad at all. Since I'm 5'6" I only use 6 spoons per shake and 1 can lasts 3 days drinking 4 shakes daily and still one portion for next day's breakfast.

              I use the product every morning for breakfast at 8. It supress my hunger until lunch time 12-1ish. I mix it with unsweet almond milk in a small blender for 20 sec and it comes out perfect everytime. It's like a milk shake. I have used it with water and it's not as thick and I notice it does curbs my appetite as long, but it does supress it. I like this stuff. It is costly, however to me it is worth it.

                When I use this as directed I lose weight quickly. It tastes great. I do miss chewing so I usually cheat and that causes me to gain weight but when I see the scale move up 3 or so lbs. I get back to replacing all my meals with this product.
