Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the question.

My opinion;

People need to learn how to eat real food. I do not think relying on "bars" or "drinks" (or powders, pills, etc etc) is the way to good health. Even if they do for a short time, they still will eventually have to learn to eat right, so why not just learn to eat right from the start.

While there may be some evidence supporting the effectiveness of products like this when used under supervision, the reason why they work for some people is that they take away all choices and decisions about what to eat. You basically just have the few drinks/shakes a day.

Now, what I find really ironic, is that when I offer a healthy alternative, like eating real foods and being more active, they tell me that the main problem with my solution is that it is boring.

Go Figure. :)

In Health
