OK I am a 45 yr old Male Hispanic, live alone, take Glucophage 2x daily, overnight sugars about 110 mg/dl, see my endocrinologist every 3 months, suffer from sleep apnea (use cpap), work out at the health club 5x per week, and I'm 40 lbs overweight. I consume alcohol on weekends when I socialize and go out for dinner. Yes, I need to cut back there. I hate to cook for myself. Seriously thinking of trying the diet shake for two meals, and eating a sensible (salad, chicken or fish) meal for either the mid day meal or last meal. I've been to nutritionists before, who has time to sit and count calories, count carbs, blah, blah, blah. When I'm at the table I want to eat, I don't want to count or weigh anything!!! So I go on the diet shake 2x a day, what do I have to lose? Summers coming, I want to drop weight now!! Anyone try this? Any preferences on brand of diet shake mix?
