Lost weight but expensive!
OK, first let me say that I have lost some weight but I think that should be expected as the 1st phase of this you only drink the shakes and for a snack you get broth. Since you are not eating solid food you should lose weight. I have only been doing it for 3 days and I am down pounds but I am almost half done with the container of almased (and this is with only 2 shakes per day)! I do feel more energetic and do not get sleepy mid day...loving that! I guess if you can lose the weight you want it is worth the price. Also, once you get to the weight you desire you can use this as more of a maintenance so it will not be as pricey! I will reorder to see if I can continue to lose once I start eating again...hopefully, this is a healthier way to shed the pounds and boost metabolism. I would recommend this product but I would advise to be prepared to buy more than just 1 at a time!

Bye Bye Belly
One of the few products that makes good on it's belly fat reducing promise. This is my second time truly dedicating to 2 shake meals per day. When I am faithful I see direct reduction in mid-section fat and overall weight loss. To me the shake tastes delicious; however, I do have some favorite add in flavors to counter monotony. Cinnamon, pumpkin pie spices, vanilla and powdered (dark) cocoa are among them. 7 oz cold almond, coconut or 1/2% milk and 7 oz water. This stuff works!

Almased is everything it claims to be
I only use it for one meal daily usually breakfast and instead of 8 tbsp I only use four mixed in a 16oz water bottle. I completely forget about food for the next 6-8 hours. No hunger no cravings and after 4 months with light exercise I've maintained my goal weight without a single worry.

I found the colder the better and read carefully and found adding some crystal light to the shake made it taste better, just don't use Fructose as stated in directions. I put mine in a blender with ices and make a smoothy. Very full and weight coming off nicely.

Don't waste your money
I didn't think this supplement was all that great. The taste left something to be desired. If the taste isn't great, how does one stick with a product? I also thought it was quite expensive. Don't waste your money.

My husband & I have been using this product since April & between us have lost 29 pounds!!!! Of course one must consciously choose to eat well & you must exercise. I add 1/2 glass of Almond Milk without sweetener & 1/2 glass of water to the mix. I also pre-mix the Almased w/low-low-low fat dark chocolate mix, a few tablespoons of real cinnamon & 1 tablespoon of Cocoanut sugar (all purchased from Swanson's). My husband & I drink it 2x a day as breakfast & lunch. We also eat sensibly for dinner & I am so happy to be thinner!!! Can't wait to reach my goal weight & my husband is quite thrilled with his loss of weight, as well as my own. I've also discovered I have much more energy & sleep better as well. Swanson's has THE BEST PRICE for Almased. Thanks so much Swanson's!

Best Protein drink ever
I have tried most other protein drinks, even pea protein and this one is the best. It does everything it says. It is thicker and it keeps you feeling fuller longer. I just wish it came in larger amounts. I also love Swanson, they sell it cheaper than the manufacturer.

I replaced two meals per day with Almased, eating a regular lunch and snacks. I didn't feel hungry, but it wasn't enough calories. I felt weak and mentally foggy, all of which cleared up once I ate a good meal. I lost about 4 pounds, but it was all water weight and it came right back once I started eating regularly.

I am Satisfied!
I have been using this for a little over a week. I have been replacing three meals with it. Huge reduction in inches and bloat, and down about 4 pounds. I mix it with chocolate almond milk. It tastes pretty decent. The main thing is: I am not hungry. Like at all. When I find myself reaching for food, I realize it is out of boredom not hunger. I never thought I could be that person, but it is helping me recognize and break my food addictions. I also feel good, my joints feel looser, less creaky. I really enjoy it!

I have been using this product for about six months now and I have noticed a positive difference in my energy level and health. I am able to sustain a pretty difficult workout routine that I was not capable of getting through in the past. I have more energy and I feel stronger. I have also noticed an improvement in my hair, skin and nails. I feel great! This product also tastes good and sometimes I add some natural fruit. I am not using this product to loose weight, just to improve my health. I have one smoothie in the morning. However, with increased exercise and eating healthy, I did loose about 5 lbs. I love this product, and I recommend it!

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.
