Has anyone tried the Metabolife or Andrew Lessman meal replacement shakes?

I saw the Metabolife shake mix at GNC , and the Andrew Lessman(sp?) on HSN. I was looking for something to use for a quick breakfast on the run and makye for a snack up in the day. It is hard at work to be eating a yogurt or something in case a customeer walks in, but a shake can just look like a drink.
So i was curious if anyone has ever used them before. I would also like to see if they will aid in weight loss. I think they are both pretty low in calories. There were both good and bad reviews on them both, but that is with almost everything. The Metabolife is the cheaper of the two.

  • I have used the herbalife and I don't like the taste of them. I have used the GNC shakes and I like those the best of all of the ones that I have tried....their cookies and cream is so delicious.

  • I have found that the shakes don't keep me satisfied very long. I used to supplement with shakes, but they ended up being extra calories.
    Have you ever thought about just having fruit cut up in your drawer. If a customer walks up you just close the drawer.
    Have you ever noticed that people don't seem to take issue with anyone eating an apple. It seems to be the universally accepted food to eat in public.
    Just some thoughts
