Not what I expected
It was very gritty in my opinion. I wanted to like it because everybody else did but I couldn’t get past the grit. The taste isn’t great and I tried mixing it with other things but the flavor would over power everything. Nah its not my thing but it might work for you

It really helps you lose the tough last pounds
I love this shake! It’s kind of an acquired taste, but it doesn’t taste that bad. You can also mix it with different stuff to make it taste better. I have been using this for a year. I’ve maintained a loss of 15 lbs. If you follow the meal instructions that come with the shake, you Can see results like the very next day. I lost most of the weight in my stomach.

So far, so good!
I just started using Almased Monday after reading reviews I’ve been pretty excited. I’m following phase 1 to the “T” . The first 2 days were pretty rough until I got on the scale day 3( which is today) and I’m already 7lbs down. Not sure how many inches maybe just 1 but my pants are already a little more loose than usual. I have been excercising 40 mins a day to maximize my own personal weight loss goals. I’m not too disappointed with the taste either. I may just be weird because I’ve read all the bad reviews as far as taste. I wish it wasn’t so expensive because one can doesn’t even last a full week but I guess I can’t conolain either because it does exactly what it says as long as you follow the plan!!! I’ll update as I progress!

My success after using Almased for 38 days!
I am so impressed by this powder! It helped my (Very) sensititive stomach and was easy to mix with water and cinnamon! After just 2 days I seemed to get my energy back and it took away all my junk food cravings too. I must have been depleted of my B vitamins, and could see that my skin, and fingernails were growing better since beginning to use it 3timesa day in a drink form for breakfast, after my exercise sessions and before I go to sleep at night. I did not use it for a fast but lost 7 pounds since January 2nd, just taking it so I would snack on something nutritious. My sensitive stomach is fine with it and I feel better than I have in about 2 years, It is really good stuff. Im 56 years old, and was a yoga teacher for 20 years. This stuff is better than all the products I have tried in the past 18 years. I get it cheaper on autoship than I first bought it in a health food store.

I have not start yet but i have diabetic and is this safe and do you justmix it with water or milk ? And have anyone got sick off this before you no of ? And will it work if you just do it lunch or after dinner ? And this keep you going to the bathroom ? Thank you Anonymous
A shopper on May 24, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The product is safe for diabetics, is easily mixed with water or skim milk, does not make you sick, should be used in replacement of some meals, and does not make you go to the bathroom. People with diabetes can use Almased® as outlined above. The first thing to do is to see how Almased® affects your blood sugar level, if any. Therefore, you will continue with your diabetes medication as usual and measure your blood sugar before and 2 hours after your first Almased® shake, which should preferably be mixed in water. This step is important and will tell you if your medication needs to be adapted (e.g. if your blood sugar level tends to run too low).
