I mix this daily with unsweetened almond, soy and/or coconut milk. I have insulin resistance and just could not seem to lose the last 15 lbs of baby weight. With Almased, I am within 10 lbs of my goal weight. It works. I am now having it 2 - 3 times a day with a regular meal (protein/dark leafy greens) once a day. I am 5'9" and was up to 157. I am now down to 145 lbs and am slowly working towards 135. I run 4 times per week (2 - 3 miles), bike and lift weights. I feel fantastic. Almased is a part of my life now and I love it.

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 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 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!

              Comments about Almased Synergy Diet Powder, 17.6 oz:

              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 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.

                            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.
