I would like to lose some weight - does anyone have any ideas on good meal replacement shakes for weight loss? Ones that are high in protein and will not spike the blood sugar?

Food replacement shakes are a fast way to lose weight and in my opinion the lazy way. You cannot replace fresh healthy food for something in a can, bottle or powder.

Oprah did a liquid food replacement diet and lost a lot of weight then gained it back plus additional pounds. Because you lose weight faster and are not working on it through diet and exercise, people often gain the weight back because they failed to learn what to do to lose weight with diet and exercise. If this is what you want to do, you should first check with your doctor.

Uni Key Health ( you can access them online ) sells a whey protein shake in both chocolate and vanilla. In the morning, when my sugar runs high due to the "dawn effect" I sometimes opt for this product. It has 20 grams of protein and is very low carb. Tasty, not chalky like some others. I add flaxseed oil to give it some body and it carries me 4 hours- easy!
