Rated 4 out of 5 by KSW11 Great Product
Although I only lost 2lbs and I think if I would have just used regular meal replacement I would have lost just as much. I do have a better outlook on my diet after using this 2 day fast formula. It seems I am more motivated and have less bad cravings and more healthy cravings. I didn't think it would work but it definately gave me a better outlook. It also tastes awesome, I used the chocolate and it honestly tasted similar to chocolate milk! Make sure you get it mixed up well though with no chunks. Definately would recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SkinnyFinn Down 6 lbs., totally worth it for 2 day's "work"
I did this to lose some holiday lbs. I followed the directions and did some walking for exercise and lost 6lbs. My caffeine withdrawal headache lasted for the two days I was on the program, so I know my system was letting go of some toxins and water weight.
It tasted good and I also drank some herbal detox tea and a ton of water.
I recommend this as a jump start to for initial weight loss - especially after the holidays. If you can stick with it - it works!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Beej Did not lose any weight
Tried this over a 4 day weekend - sat - ate only the shakes and 1 apple - sunday - shakes and apple and a pear ....weighed myself the evening of the 2nd day - no change - I had mild headaches off and on and did take some aleive. I started at 114 and ended up at 114 - the 2nd day - you do spend some more time in the br ...sunday - I will say my cravings for some things have been better but again no wight loss.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LilBear I have yet to actually try it, even though I want to. Here are my thoughts on why this may or may not work for you (or me): weight loss is all about calorie deficits. Drinking these shakes will bring you in about 330 Cal per day. As an example, I'm a 5'4" 140# 25y/o female who works out 4-5 days of the week, fairly muscular but could stand to lose 10-15 lbs. If I were sedentary, I'd burn about 1600 Cal, but on active days I might burn 2100. It takes burning 3500 calories to lose 1 true pound of fat (not water weight). So, if I did nothing but drank these shakes, I'd average only burning 2600 calories in 2 days (1300/day). Not even a pound! Basically what I'm reasoning at here is that the bigger you are with more weight to lose, it's probably going to be more effective for you vs someone like me looking to lose a few vanity pounds. Even if I exercised hard both days (not ideal while fasting) I might only lose a pound (3600 Cal burned).
Long story short, it's up to you to decide what you think you can get out of this fast. I might just save the money and clean up my diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Partybus! Great Results and Great Taste
I recently took the 2 day challenge of only drinking the chocolate shake. The flavor was amazing in my opinion, I blended my shakes with a few ice cubes for a thicker consistency. Day one was a breeze I was not hungry at all. When I woke up on day two I had a slight headache but nothing bad enough to break me down and eat food. The hardest part was probably the thought of not eating warm food the whole time. Overall I think this is a great product. After the program I had a weight loss of 6lbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jane Tastey when mixed it a blender.
The vanilla flavor tasted great! The texture was gritty and clumpy when I mixed it in a glass with water but it was amazing when I threw it in the blender with water and ice. I lost a little bit of weight, was never hungry and it dawned on me that I'd never realized how addicted to food I was. It kicked started a great diet/way of life change. I no longer eat because I'm bored or because there is food available even if I'm not hungry. I now eat when I'm hungry and don't when I'm not. Sounds simple enough but it's an amazingly hard habit to kick without something like this as to kick start the change in habit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by denmar Does what it's intended to do.
I lost 8 lbs - but I started after a weekend of indulgence, so I'm going to say I probably lost about 6 real pounds. I went back to my normal diet (trying to lose weight) and did not gain anything back. The taste was fine. I thought it was going to be harder to do - but 2 days was not bad. I will definitely be using this after Thanksgiving and Christmas. I think it's an excellent way to reset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Misfitt This is a very good product!
I used water with this product and lost 3.2 lbs. I did gain a little back but I know if I continue to work out with Insanity it will be gone in no time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by develledia Worked Only Slightly, Temporarily
The first day was really tough, I felt very hungry. On the second day of the fast I woke up with a huge headache, so I ate a banana as the pamphlet suggested. Had trouble concentrating on tasks both days. Lost only two pounds through the fast, was glad, but weight was immediately gained back by end of week even though I worked very hard through a nutritious diet and my P90x routines to keep it off. I don't know what I could have done differently. So by the end of the week I ended up with no noticeable results. This did not work for me, I believe it was not worth the hard effort it took to endure the 2 days of fasting. My body did not handle the fast well. I was disappointed and felt I lost the money it took to purchase, as well as the days of exercise I had to take off in order to fast. (I'm 22, female, & 156 lbs for reference.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tessie It's worth it.!
I have used this system multiple times throughout this last 2 years. Very effective and honestly easy! I would recommend Vanilla as the chocolate was hard for me to like only because I love chocolate in general & this did not taste like what i love. The shakes are really just a liquid drink, not a shake at all- but I never feel starved or lack of energy. This is always an amazing kick-start to my workout programs or vacations as I generally loose 7lbs and keep off 5lbs. I have recommended this system to my clients as it is simple and effective! I LOVE it, it is not the best tasting/shake like consistency- but I have had and experienced much worse with less results!
