easy and convenient
Love this stuff. I prepare with skim milk or coconut milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon. I skip the oil (I think it makes it taste weird). The three day starter phase wasn't kind to my digestive system, so I stick to 2 shakes a day and a moderate meal in the evenings when I'm trying for weight loss. For maintenance I drink a shake at my desk for lunch. Blender bottle here on the site is a great purchase. I run 3 miles a day at lunch and find that I have just as much (if not more) energy and stamina with two shakes a day as I did without them. I'm not hungry, find the shakes very satisfying. I've lost 8 stubborn lbs and more importantly, 2" off my waist, 1" off hips and 1" off thighs in 2 months.

Good for Quick Start lose weight
I liked that this helped me drop about 5 lbs in the 1st two-three weeks. Which is what I needed to motivate and lose weight. I didnt' follow exactly the full 3-4 week plan, and currently only doing 1 drink a day. But the 7-8lbs have stayed off, and I realize more exercise is all need to drop the other 5 or so more pounds I want to lose. Great jump start. Recommend for those who need that type of jump to keep going.

I have been drinking almased for about 3 months, I drink it on an average of twice a day, since April 1, my husband has also started drinking it. What I like about almased is that keeps me from being hungry for several hours! What I like about Swanson is that the prices are great, sometimes better then others, also the delivery time is usually very fast, and the fact Swanson has several coupons a month which makes the prices even better. Thank you for caring about our satisfaction!!!

I have been trying to loose weight with several diets and even fasting but it didn't work, my metabolism being too lazy. I tried Almased and lost 4 lbs the first week, now I am at the 2nd week and have lost total 7 lbs, mainly belly fat. It is very encouraging and am planning to go on according to Almased's plan.

I like this product
I especially like the super and I mean super fast shipping from Swanson. As for the product, it helps supplement my diet. I use low-fat chocolate soy milk and it tastes delicious.

I bought this product based on great reviews, but I am very dissatisfied. I used the product for about three days and during that time I experienced several negative effects including headaches, hot flashes, and difficulty sleeping. I quit using the product and the symptoms immediately went away. I will send the product back and never use again. I did lose a slight amount of weight, but did not enjoy the negative side effects. Aside from the side effects, the flavor was horrible even though I tried to use other people's suggestions of adding cocoa powder, almond milk, or vanilla flavoring. I do use another plant based protein powder on this site (Plant Fusion) which has a much better taste and zero side effects. This is a very clean protein and works much better for me.

No weight lose
I have bought 6 Almased containers. I have strictly followed my diet as per instructions. I have mixed almased with water and I never eat any food for 15 days other than Almased. I did workout for 45 min for 5 days a week. I was 160 lbs before I start this Almased diet program After 15 days I have checked my weight and disappointed. Because no change in my weight. I am in same weight 160 lbs. This is not worked for me. But I didn't feel tired and hungry. But this product didn't meet my goal.

I was skeptical at first but when you follow the suggested use...you really can lose weight and not be hungry. I was really impressed that I could follow this and have it work.

must be me
I thought this was gross on every level. I mixed with water. With Milk. With chocolate. I just didn't like the texture or the taste. I'd rather not eat.
Just my opinion, I was sorry it did not work for me.

This Product Works
I was skeptical at first about this weight loss shake but after a friend and I tried it I won't be without it. It is so healthy and really helped me lose the weight I wanted to. I now have a shake every day just to maintain where I am. The taste is not the greatest but I still think anyone could do this.

Good Weight Loss Supplement
One shake a day seems to do something good, as I lose weight regularly and craving for "bad stuff" seems lessened.
We mix Almased with almond milk and some sugar free chocolate, which inproves the taste and doesn't seem to impact the good qualities.
Order arrived on promised date and was very carefully packed. Will reorder, without a doubt.

Convenient, nutritious and filling
I like this shake because it fills you up for hours. It requires cinnamon and vanilla and a bit of stevia. Has a somewhat grainy texture. Haven't tried mixing it without a blender, so I don't know how easily it dissolves.
Swanson had the best price I could find at my time of purchase. The containers aren't very sturdy and people have trouble with them breaking open during shipment. My dog got one of my containers off the table and ate a lot of it, so they're not terrier proof, either. Had to toss the rest of it, of course, which was quite a disappointing waste.

This product has worked for me. I have lost weight but you do have to exercise and discipline yourself to want to reach the weight goal. It is hard to trust weight loss products but this one does work. So far, I've lost 2lbs in 1 week.

Almased is an amazing diet product. You are not hungry and you really can lose weight. It is very easy to do and I like mine thick and cold, like a shake. Swanson has the best price I have found, anywhere on the web.

I bought this to kick start weight loss. I loss seven pounds in a week of the fast. I was not hungry!! I add cinnamon to each shake and a little olive oil. This improves the taste, and it is not gritty. I like this protein drink because it is not full of sugar like other brands. It really is good for you. I'm only drinking one shake a day, I have not gained any of my weight back. I will contiue to use this product.

I've been using Almased for 7 weeks now and have lost 15 pounds. The product is easy to use with the shaker blender bottle. I like the 27 grams of protein in each serving because it keeps me from getting hungry so soon after eating. I was able to eat over the Thanksgiving holiday and get back on track Monday morning. I mix 1/2 water and 1/2 unsweetened vanilla almond milk with 1 Tblsp. of ground flax seed, 2 packets of Splenda and 2 ice cubes. Tastes yummy! I plan to stick with it for awhile as I have quite a few more ponds to go, but it really is an easy diet after you get through the first week. Also, Swanson's has the best price, by far!

On point shake
I love this product. I have lost 32 pounds and kept it off for 2years. This is the best thing out there with no gimmicks at all. What I love about getting this product from Swansonvitamins is the cost and fast delivery. You will not find this product any place cheaper than Swansonvitamins.

I went on the two week quick start and the product worked very well. I lost 11 lbs. and have kept it off for two weeks doing the product only once a day and being careful about quantities that I eat. I have not been hungry during this time.
I have been very pleased with this product.

Best meal replacement!
These shakes are able to replace my meals without any adverse effects - no headaches, no hungry. The taste is great for what it is, I do use almond milk and cinnamon for variety. Swanson's offers this product substantially cheaper than anywhere else.

Great energy boost!
I really felt I had more energy, not sluggish from eating the usual stuff, but replacing this for 1-2 meals really helped to keep me going all day.

LISTEN TO ME! THIS WORKS!
I just have to tell you that this does work. Period. I had a question and they have a dietitian that answers your questions ASAP. I have lost weight in the first 14 days and today people I work with noticed my weight loss. I am never hungry and the tired ups and downs from sugar highs no longer happen. I do not fall asleep at night when I get home and I don't get tired after eating my evening meals anymore. I love Swanson VItamin company and they shipped it right away and the cost-well, you try to find it any cheaper! I add 1 teas of chia seeds to my drinks along with 3/4 teas cinnamon. I do as directed on the paper that comes with the product-filtered water etc. IF you are looking for something yummy-this is just ok. BUT it tastes better everyday when you see that it works!!! FOLLOW DIRECTIONS-you will see. (I also don't drink a broth at lunch-I drink a large V-8 juice.) Just buy 1 can if you are nervous about it-use it all up and do as directed and you will see. :)
