    * Been using this for about 30 yrs. It works, and no yo-yo dieting, unless your diet afterwards consists *solely* of fast food and unhealthy snacks. It was originally developed by a Dr. Markert in Germany, I'm from there, thus I know it that long. I go by the original diet rules from his book, which was translated into English for the U.S. market under the name "The Turbo Protein Diet" (found it in my local library for free). I do 2 weeks full-on Almased every time and loose 13-14 lbs (2-3 come back as water retention after). When I had a lot to loose I did 2 wks on, 4-6 wks off to stabilize, 2 wks off, etc. Lost 70 lbs in a year and kept it off for 8yrs (major life event through me into nighttime binging and quitting any size of exercise, not even taking a walk to get away from my desk...starting over now). The Almased company is owned by someone else than Markert, who claims to have developed the diet and has a modified version listed in their pamphlet. That's fine too but I'm better sticking to it when I'm not eating any regular food at all, so the original version works best for me. It also helps with resetting my taste butts and mind, so I don't even really want anything super unhealthy after the 2 weeks, otherwise I eat normal afterwards. Important: drink home-made veggie broth, at least 4 cups a day, it's really important, especially when you're doing 2 wks full-on Almased.

    * Love this product. Took a few tries to get the taste where I wanted. Added some vanilla, packet of Splenda, chia, and cinnamon. Also, don't forget the oil. I used coconut. Lost 4 lbs in three days. The only drawback was container is only 10 servings. Doesn't last very long. Which is fine if you just want to try it to see if it's for you. Otherwise make sure you order enough that you don't run out.

    * I did not get any noticeable results from their standard "3 day diet" but it really, really helps me curb my munchies if I start my day with this shake. I personally love the taste (pleasant tartness with a touch of sweet - think "euro-tart frozen yogurt") and never add anything except for an occasional unsweetened nut or flax milk for extra creaminess. Mixes similar to other powders - fight a few clumps if you stir it, or use a shaker bottle.

    * I replaced my usual supplemental protein shake with Almased about 1 month ago. I am in my late 40's and had given up on weight loss and had decided to focus on well being. I had been training for a 100 mile bicycle ride for months when I decided to give Almased a try. Within 1 week I had noticeable improvements in my training. My initial goal was not to lose weight, but to enhance my well being. Almased has delivered weight loss and an amazing sense of well being. I started drinking Almased 3 times daily. Some people are turned off by the bland taste, however; it is the bland taste that makes it the perfect base mix to add in multiple flavors. I enjoy Almased in my fresh vegetable/fruit smoothie or with 1 TBS cocoa and 1/2 a banana with almond milk. I also enjoy it with PB2 peanut butter powder and 1/2 banana or flavored stevia liquid. In fact mixing with almond milk and flavored stevia gives endless flavor possibilities. Add in a few ice cubes and it is like a smoothie. Almased is a great appetite suppressant. Since starting Almased I even sleep better and do not suffer muscle cramps. I plan to continue drinking Almased as a training supplement indefinitely. I would love it if I could purchase it in a larger size.

    * This is a great product for fast, sustained weight loss. I lost 18 lbs in the first two months and am still going. The first 3 days are the hardest and then your body gets used to it. You are not hungry and it is convenient. I have tried many diets and this is the only one that works.
