Rated 1 out of 5 by Godiva I lost a few pounds
But gained it all back within days. I used the product for 4 full days; ate nothing. Worked out mildly during that time. I lost 3 pounds, which was fine. Until all the weight came back. Very disappointing, especially since I have had success with other Beachbody products.

I always have a hard time losing that last 5-10 pounds. This product is great because it gives you that extra boost. It is great to use at the beginning of a new workout program, to loose that last little bit of weight or to get your mind and body refocused. I have used the fast twice now and I recommend it to all my friends!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BlondieSalsera Don't waste your money or health on this product.
I ordered the 2 day fast and tried it on two separate weekends. I followed the directions to a tee... only mixed with water, no food at all, drank more water during the day, etc. I did not loose any weight the first weekend I tried. This past weekend I lost 2 pounds, but was hungry for most of the weekend and did not feel this was a healthy way to jump kick a fitness plan. The shakes come out to about 130 calories and if you consume 3 a day that is not enough for your body to meet it's nutritional needs in a day.
I should have known better as I am an educated woman, but I am down to my last 10 pounds that are hovering on my body so the idea was tempting.
I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaNo Light great taste
This is the first powdered drink I've ever been able to handle and I actually really like. When you mix it with water it still has a very thin texture and not thick. I have been using it just once a day as a meal replacement and I've lost 8 lbs in one month. It really does satisfy and I don't feel hungry. I variate taking it in the morning or at lunch. I highly recommend it, especially if you don't like the thickness of some of the other powder mixes...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Loved this!
I had nothing to eat for 2 days and the only thing I had to drink or water, 2 cups of juice and 5 Beachbody fasting shakes (which tasted A LOT better than I thought they would)....and I lost a grand total of 6 lbs! YEPPIE! They said to expect moodiness and slugginess. But day 1 was okay for me. I even went on 2 light jogs around the "ponds" here at the apartment complex. However, day 2, that was a little harder. I woke up HUNGER! I wanted FOOD! But I knew I could do it, and I did, I held off my cravings for food. However, I really didn't have much energy or any motivation to actually do anything on day 2. In fact, I just pretty much slept and laid around the house most of the day. (it helped that it was windy and looking bad outside) and though I didn't experience any moodiness all day Tuesday and most of Wednesday, I did have a semi-break down Wednesday night. But it was okay, husband was actually surprised I hadn't had more moodiness. So all in all, I think that it was a good experience and one I think I might repeat about every month or so. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Insanity Lover Didn't work for me.
I was excited to get this product in order to get rid of those stubborn couple of pounds from being pregnant. Keep in mind I have done P90X once and Insanity 4 times. I did not think that it worked at all and I was miserably starving the whole time. The only plus was that the taste was actually much better than I expected. But I didn't loose anything or feel better and if you want to do a fast just for the sake of it, I say get a $3 jar of chocolate ovaltine and use that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by betanya I lost 3pounds
I was really excited and hoping to loose atleast 5 pounds, but I only lost 3. The chocolate taste really good and I wasnt really hungry in between shakes. I did have energy for a 30minute workout the 2nd day so it wasnt too bad but I was really tired by the end of the 2nd night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad to eat again It works!
The chocolate formula was delicious and the shakes were incredibly filling. I drank a lot of lemon water in between the shakes which helped provide that full feeling. I did this during the week which I think was better because I had work and other things to occupy my time. The first day was rough, especially dinner time! I had to make dinner for my boyfriend which was horribly cruel to do to myself. I suggest that if you have others living with you that perhaps you should have them get take out or go out. The smell of food is a horrible tease the first night!
The second day I felt really good and it was much easier to get through the day. After my third shake, I couldn't stop thinking about what I would have for breakfast the next morning.
I didn't experience any headaches, but I did feel nauseous the second day during the afternoon for a little while (it eventually passed).
Breakfast, I had a 1 egg white scramble with veggies and piece of toast. I was able to eat only a few bites before feeling full and a bit sick. I had some fruit later which made me feel better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lia good taste and smell
When I got this i actully smelled it and it smelled great just like chocolate and the taste was good too. But I do recomend putting it in a blender so it's not as grainy
I wasn't hungry at all after I drank it only when it was time to drink the next one. ((note: this was right after halloween so there is candy everywhere and I didn't eat anny of it)) I only ate the last night because my mother wanted to go out and I didn't want to turn her down. But I ate alot less then I would normally eat! :3 ((still have alittle left over for one more glass))
