  • R. WOOD - Shocked at how good this was

    Seriously, I thought I would hate this product. I have an aversion to soy in any form, but I was desperate. I needed something that I would make easily and change the flavor around so I didn't get sick of it. I need to be on a meal replacement diet for at least 3 months. When I opened the pouch this morning. I thought here we go, it smells like the formula powder I used to mix up on the farm 50 years ago for the baby calves that lost their moms. It didn't smell bad...but it smelled just like that stuff. I made two shakes today with the powder and I was delighted. Since it is only 90 calories before you start adding things too it, there is some wiggle room for making it great tasting. Some of the meal replacement powders are already so high in calories you can't add anything to them or you might as well have a regular meal. I used 8 oz of low fat milk this morning, with six ice cubes and a cup of frozen raspberries. I didn't realize the powder has a little sweetener right in it. I did not have to add any additional sweetening to make it taste great. It made a beautiful thick tasty shake. For lunch I made one with frozen peaches, 1/2 cup of orange juice and 1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk and a few drops of vanilla extract. Fabulous.You can make all kinds of combinations with this one powder. I am not going to have a hard time staying on this at all. I hesitated buying something like this because of the price...what if it was was awful? It was very very good to my surprise. It comes out to $1.67 plus whatever you want to add, per shake... That is a lot lower that most breakfast or lunches out. Most people spend a lot more on that on their coffee each day. When I looked at it that way...I decided it was very cost effective ...since it was easy to use and tasted great. I would like to add after being on this now for 5 days..I dropped 7 pounds without feeling hungry or deprived. I feel this best I have felt in a long time and I an no longer sleepy in the afternoons..because of carb overload. When you feel better you are far more active. Helpful Hint...I was looking at the rating on this and trying to figure out why anyone wouldn't have given this 5 stars...I thought...They must not be mixing it right. For maximum enjoyment...don't put this in one of those shaker bottles with a ball and shake...You certainly will not get the best result that way. If you want a really delicious meal...then use a blender or bullet type machine. Start by placing a cup of liquid (juice, milk, coconut milk..whatever combination you like) in with the powder first...blend for a minute, so that it is smooth, then add your 6-8 ice cubes and frozen fruit.) Blend until is it thick and creamy. I like mine thick to eat with a spoon so I add a lot of ice...want to just drink it with a straw...add less ice. Enjoy...and watch the pounds melt away.

  • Katy - Nerve improvement, memory enhancer.

    My doctor recommended these particular B vitamins due a condition in which the coverings on my nerves are deteriorating leading to sudden sharp pain, tingling, and loss of use in one arm. I have been using them for 4 years now. My condition has not worsened and seems to have improved, if not gone away. My father mentioned a similar problem and I offered him these vitamins. He saw improvement within a month. He offered them to an older brother. The brother did not see his pains go away but found substantial improvement in his memory. He now uses them as part of his everyday regimen, calling my dad whenever he is running low for a fresh supply. As neither of these men has a computer, I have become their supplier and find it rather amusing that they call, asking for their 'vitamin B fix'.

  • Whales & Dolphins - Worse health now after taking the product

    When I realized I have IBS w/ slow bowel motility, I began taking probiotics. I started my first month with Udo Flora brand. It worked within two days. I only switched my second month to Align because I became intrigued by the positive reviews. I did some research and saw that Proctor & Gamble makes this product which made me hugely skeptical, since it is a very opaque and profit-driven company. I also can't easily find a list of ingredients on their website--case in point. As per usual Proctor & Gamble products, they don't make much information on their products available. It makes me think they use bad quality ingredients. Anyway, when the product arrived, I was disappointed to see it contains milk ingredients. I am vegan. I tried it anyway in a fervor of wishful thinking that it would improve my digestive health. I have been taking it daily for almost four weeks, and I am more bloated and irregular than I was two months ago, before I began taking probiotics. Once again, I went to the Align website to see how many billions of bacterial cells this product has, and I could not find it easily. I finally found that there are only one billion live cells at time of manufacturing. No wonder it doesn't work. Other products give you about 20 billion. What you can count on receiving from P&G regarding Align is insulting to the average consumer's intelligence. Here is the typical language they use (when looking at what to expect week by week when taking Align): "If you have been taking Align every day, you should be noticing that it's easy to add to your daily routine. You're working to help support a healthy digestive system, so keep it up."

  • Brad - Beautiful new Birthday Barbie - LOVE the headband!

    My daughter loves Barbie and gets the Birthday barbie every year for her birthday. We both LOVE this one. I really like the changeup in hairstyle with the headband. The dress is beautiful too. This might be my favorite birthday Barbie she has to date! Great collectable, or great for playing too! The only challenge if this doll is intended for play is that most of these collector dolls (this one included) have one arm permanently bent so changing clothes can be tricky. But it is so beautiful and we have enough Barbies that these special dolls rarely get undressed at my house!
