Metabolic reSet Chocolate
Container half full
Received product much to my dismay the big container was half full. This product is not cheap..so either make the container smaller or lessen the price. The taste is great...have not lost an ounce.

I am not sure why some people don't like the taste; this is one of the best shakes I have ever had, and I have tried a LOT. Yes, it is kind of grainy if you mix with water--so mix with milk, soy milk, or almond milk (almond is my favorite). Doing so fixes the problem--and I have yet to have ANY shake that doesn't have a little bit of graininess. There is a slight aftertaste, but it is not bad--kind of like just drinking a soda or something but not eating with it--and drinking some water solves that issue. No digestive/gas issues for me--must be a person to person thing.
It definitely satisfies--quite well, in fact--at least as well as the medical-grade shakes I have used (no names, to be fair here). And, the cost is a LOT more reasonable (one month for $50, give or take, depending on how much you use). My main gripe for value is what has been noted before: that the jug is basically only half full when you get it (waste of plastic). Either fill the jug, or shrink it to fit the amount you receive, Nature's Way!!
I just started this as part of my weight loss/off-season athletics maintenance plan, so I can't speak to its efficacy for weight loss. However, if it continues to work as well as I have noticed so far, I have high hopes.

I need to lose weight. Have made an effort for about 11/2 years, only to lose 5 lbs. Feeling desperate so thought I would give this shake a try. Lost 3 lbs in the first week. I have been taking it twice a day, and a small meal with the family in the evening. It does taste pretty good, I was surprised. However, if you do not like stevia and the after taste stevia leaves, you may have a hard time with this. After a few days, I do not mind it as much. The first few days I was starving, really doubt the claim that it helps you feel full, but found out with milk, it works better longer. I love that it does not contain artificial ingredients, and is full of vitamins. I plan on using this twice a day for a month and then cutting back to once a day. I wish it had more product in it, even though it is a good deal here at Swanson's, twice a day will only last me two weeks. That will get expensive. Mixes well in a blender cup.

good meal replacement
I like to mix it with Greens first (I love chocolate mint flavor), or with frozen berries from my garden.
I have a shaker bottle and I've been taking it to work to drink mid morning when I don't have breakfast. I mix it with powdered greens, and organic unsweetened soy milk and water. Very satisfying. I like that it uses xylitol and stevia as the sweeteners.

Chocolate Protein Shake
Although I prefer vanilla taste, the chocholate is not bad at all. It does limit your appetite especially when combined with milk before meals. You don't feel hungry and as a result you don't eat much. It helps losing weight.

best meal replacement option I've found
I've tried a fair share of this sort of product and this one is by far the best. Great chocolate taste. I didn't like the strawberry at all, was curious. I use slightly less than the 2 scoop serving and I find this keep my shake from tasting pasty/foamy. My recipe every morning is:
1.5 scoop Metabolic reset
3oz mixed frozen berries (thank u trader joe's)
1/3c coconut water
1/3c unsweetened fruit juice
1/3c almond milk

Very good product. I have tried many of meal replacements and this one is my favorite. Mixes great and flavor is good. I blend it with spinach , ice , and sugar free syrup . Add carmel, coconut, english toffee, pepperment are just some of the diffrent flavors i add. Great for anyone who loves shakes. Also mixes well in shaker bottle

I could drink this regularly,
I mix this with skim milk rather than water, and it makes it more palatable. I was a little nervous that it would be disgusting, and have to gag it down, but I was surprised. Not going to lie, it's not like sitting down to a big ol' glass of TruMoo, but for it's purpose, it's not bad! I got a shaker bottle with the little metal whisk ball inside, and it helps it get the smoother consistency. I do recommend shaking/mixing it well!
I have only been using for a short time, so am not aware of any of it's effectiveness for weight loss and appetite control yet. I guess that also depends on me :) so those results could vary.

I normally buy almased, but I'm growing tired of it's chalky texture. I read some of the reviews on the metabolic reset chocolate flavored, and I thought well, it's got protein, and some vitamins, if it tastes good it'll be a nice change. I was suprised!!! IT tastes sooooo good. I love chocolate, so this is like a healthy treat. I mix mine up with a little non fat milk, a banana, and some frozen chopped spinach. It is so good, I would go buy it somewhere. It also helps me stay full, which is suprising, most things with that claim, do not work for me, but this one did. I am definitely going to buy this product again!

Half full Container
For how big the container is it only goes up half way on the powder mix either put in a smaller container and lower the price or fill up the container and charge more, kind of deceptive.
Product its self is pretty good just get mixes well in cold water and curbs hunger gives you a bit of gas nothing to extreme, for me anyway.

This is a great buy! The chocolate flavor taste absolutely delicious! I make mine by combining (put in the blender) two scoops of the powder and 1 banana. Sometimes I throw in a few strawberries. Then I mix in about 1/2 cup of ice and 1/2 cup of water - maybe more or less, depending on my mood ;)
Anyway, the shakes are addictive. Super tasty and they will definitely fill you up. Highly recommended.

It works the way the labeling says. And it's tasty.

I love the taste but I mix mine in my coffee and I'm good till 11:30 am. The only problem I have is you get a half full jug. Either get a smaller container or FILL IT.

Good tasting seems to be working
This product tastes good when I blend it with a couple of ice cubes, coffee and milk. The thickness depends on how much liquid and powder is put in. I like making it thick and eating it with a spoon. The fiber keeps me feeling full for about 4 hours. It does taste like a fudgesicle.. I initially had gas but over time there was less of it. I started about six weeks ago and I have lost about one pound a week and continue to do so. Because I feel full, portion control has been easier. I have also made an effort to exercise and walk more. The only drawback is that it is expensive but Swanson's seems to have the best price; much less than in the supermarket.

good stuff - keeps me 'full' until around 11:30 or so. flavor reminds me of old-fashioned fudgsicles.

I like the flavor and the ease of preparation. However, the write up say that is doesn't cause the gas that others cause, that is not the way I found this product. because it has so much fiber I found it to be very frustrating to have so much gas.
