    • Weightloss Plateau

    FIrst and foremost, I'd like to say that this is a completely honest account of my experience with this product. I weighed in at about 190 lbs at one point, I exercised it off to 160 lbs, and between 160-155 lbs, I had a lot of trouble loosing the extra weight and reaching 140 lbs. My next step was to try something new.

    I found Almased online after doing tons of research. I was completely skeptical and uncertain about the product, but I decided to try it. It is important to follow all of the guidelines in order to be successful. It is important to stay focused, stay on track with the steps, portions, and so forth. Using this as a method of cleansing, to jump start your metabolism is absolutely great, plus it works!

    I drank about 4, 8-10oz shakes of Almased daily. Every day I was literally loosing a pound. Drinking Almased kept me full, completely satisfied, and diminished many of my cravings. The longer I did it for, the more determined I was to be successful. After seeing results so quickly, I decided to commit to Almased for a minimum of 10 days, and I lost a total of 8-10 lbs. I broke over the plateau and succeeded in loosing the weight intended.

    I definitely recommend it. It works just as long as you follow the instructional guide. It also helps to read other reviews and watch videos on peoples' experiences with the product to see how it works for everyone and what people do differently or similarly as a guiding tool, but generally, the instructional guide should be your source of guidance.

    great taste, hard on the system

    • Mixed Well Kept Me Full
    • Tasted good


    • Bloated My Stomach
    • Gave Me Stomach Ache
    • Left Metallic Taste

    Best Uses

      almased mixed up great in my bullet with unsweetened almond milk. added flax and chia seeds, a lil olive oil and some walnuts. tasted fabulous, consistency was palatable and it left me satisfied. the down side, which was a big one, was it left me with a metallic taste in my mouth and my stomach and bladder in complete upheaval. there's a ton of added vitamins and minerals in this that overwhelmed my body. (especially the potassium and iron) all of that is not needed. it also contains dairy. a note for anyone who is sensitive. i would love the product if it was just not over packed with extras

      Deborah C asked: The can is listed as 17.6 ounces and 10 servings. Suggested serving size is 8 Tablespoons per shake, so if I have done my math correctly, this can will only last 2 days at the most if you drink 4 shakes per day. Is this correct? What I want to know is how many shakes are you able to get from one can? Because if this is true, I realize, even though your product has good reviews and may work, it would be extremely costly, even more so than professional diet centers. Thank you! Mar 29, 2014

      Michael L: Hi Debbie,

      It's pretty much up to you on how you want to drink the shake. If you are looking to lose a significant amount of weight in two weeks, drinking the shake as a meal replacement will help. Which means that the only thing you can eat is a serving of vegetables preferably vegetable soup in a liquid form made from fresh vegetables and not the can soup. If you prefer drinking one shake for breakfast, eat a sensible lunch and have another shake for dinner, that's fine but the weight lost is not going to be rapid compared to just doing a three shakes as a meal replacement. Good Luck!!

      Mary R: The directions say it is very important to eat no solid food in the first three days. So, I would say, no. I lost most of the weight right away and doubt I would have if I had eaten meals or snacks. May 6, 2014
      Reply to Mary Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
      Jacqueline C: Yes, of course you can. I did that for about a week and a couple of days so I can ease into it. The following week I did just the shake 3x a day, May 11, 2014

      linda a: almased tastes great on its own, but I add fruit and a little stevia for sweetness and it makes a great smoothie. Almased also recommends adding a little oil such as coconut to minimize the glycemic effect of the fruit. May 6, 2014

      A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: Is Almased used as a meal replacement or partial replacement such as for breakfast of mid day meal? Based on personal experiences, how it Almased most effectively used? Jul 6, 2013
      Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
      Tracy L: Hello, Almased is a meal replacement. To optimize your results, you drink a shake for each meal for the first 2 weeks. In between meals, you can drink as much water and vegetable broth you want. After this initial period, depending on how much weight you desire to loose or how quickly you wish to shed the pounds, you can replace one or two meals per day...making sure of course the meals you make yourself are well balanced. I also recommend this product for someone who needs some extra nutritional assistance during the day. I drank this while I was undergoing chemotherapy, so I knew at least a couple times a day I was getting a decent meal. Jul 23, 2013

      Ralph B: For me it depends on why I take it. If I want it as a snack, I use it since it is filling and better than crackers etc. For weight loss, it is recommended that it be used as meal replacement (3X) for two weeks and then adjust your diet's nutrition and continue to use Almased for snacks. Jul 23, 2013
      Reply to Ralph Good answer? Yes (3) No (0)
      Lee C: I use it first thing in the morning before my workout and at night after my yoga practice. I find it very filling and if you need more flavor I will add a few drops of vanilla or coconut extract. I have also mixed it with coconut milk. Hope this helps Jul 17, 2013

      Brandon G: Glenna,

      This DOES work... ts rough the first few days getting your body used to a liquid diet. As far as the taste, I usually add some cinnamon to mine and it tastes just fine, you can try adding vanilla or almond extract to "season", also, I used unsweetened vanilla soy or almond milk- make a HUGE difference compared to water... With this diet, you'll need to go a full week of nothing but Almased for your 3 meals, no snacking- when you do get the urge to snack, I suggest having a V8 (low sodium).. and also supplementing with flaxseed oil... on your second week, I would recommend having almased in the AM, a small lunch (salad, chicken, or fish), and for dinner back to almased... in addition to that, you gotta work out... even if its just going to a speed walk, I came down 10 pounds so far and this is heading into my 4th week.. dont give in to cheating or snacking, this will help your body level out and get your metabolism jump started... remember to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated...

      David S: It can work IF you work the plan. Because I am a small person I did not use the full amount in each glass. The first 2 weeks I lost 5 lbs and continued until I lost 10. Now by watching my diet (mostly vegetarian and part time vegan) I have lost another 5 and am trying for 5 more. I use it most mornings, eat a larger vegetarian lunch and very little for the evening meal. Sometimes I have had vegetable broth in between and find that Knorr is the best. You must use your own discretion AND know your own body. Since I had less than most to lose and an erratic eating schedule, it was a bit more difficult than someone who has more to lose. I do still use it at least 3 times a week and sometimes more often. Hope this helps. Jul 10, 2014

      Tracy L: Almased is a Diabetic friendly product. It has very low glycemic load of 4, and a glycemic index of 27. In studies it has shown to help maintain healthy blood levels (HbA1C), as well as helping the body maintain healthy insulin levels. It is also a great tool to help those diabetics whom struggle to loose weight...while maintaining insulin levels your body will have an easier time burning fat. I hope that answered your question.
