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.

    I had weight loss surgery 4 yrs ago and I need to take a protein shake everyday. This product tastes great and no aftertaste. I am happy I found it no more fake sweet chemical protein shakes

          Comments about Almased Synergy Diet Powder, 17.6 oz:

          I started this in May 2013. I received a sample and mixed with water and in a hand shaker. It mixed well and it was easy swallow right down. I have been buying it ever since. I use almond milk and/or coconut milk or just coconut water to mix. I also add chia seeds in the morning. At lunch use the hand shaker with coconut water. Always mixes well no chalky taste or bits of powder. I don't have a problem with the taste. In fact it taste just fine to me. Many people I have recommended do not like it and have not continued. I like it because it doesn't have an added flavor. It along with diet and exercise helped me to lose 40lbs in 7 months.

            I mix Almased with almond milk and drink for breakfast. I really like the taste and find it filling. I have not done the 14-day diet with all meals replaced with Almased but might in the future.

              I started with a week and a half with three shakes a day plus eating fruit in between; I lost 8 lbs. then 10, 15..am working real close to 20 lbs. lost. Love this product, the way you feel, the way it tastes and most of all the way you lose weight!

                  I am using this product for a while now I found it while researching smoothies for diabetics. My doctor told me to stay away from fruits because it raises my sugar level , well with Almased I can add any fruit and don't have to worry. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a healthy life style.

                    This tastes a little like bland cereal, which is fine. It's good with cinnamon, or unsweetened cocoa powder, or a frozen bannana, or even a little fresh watermellon and pineapple. I like that it makes me have energy, without feeling jittery. Within a week or two, people started commenting on how I looked slimmer. Just what I needed to revive my diet discipline!

                      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 only use before I work out, to increase energy and speed up metabolism and because it's fast and tastes good. I mix all manner of things into it. Yogurt, juice, bananas, blueberries, Chi a seeds etc. Don't know about weight loss however but I like the fact that it is not one of those protein powders which I don't think are terribly healthy for the long term.
