Ever since my Army days beginning in 1960, I have maintained 205 to 225 Lbs of weight on my 6'3" frame. Until my wife of 45+ years, passed!
Within 5 months, was down to 147, and resembled photographs of people freed from nazi death camps after ww-2!
My sister in law, suggested I try Ensure, which led me find the "Plus" for those few people (apparently) that are trying to gain and/or maintain
weight. It works! Within 8 months, was back to 208!
Ensure (and my two k-9's) saved my life during this time in my life.
Belive all the positives from other reviews!

Ensure Plus has been my primary source of nutrition for five years now following mouth cancer surgery. I still have a PEG tube, but fortunately am able to drink my nutrition. I have tried every liquid supplement on the market. I still do not tire of my favorite, vanilla. Their chocolate is also the best chocolate on the market. The creaminess and the depth of flavoring cannot be beat. Try freezing in ice cube trays, then blending with a couple of real ice cubes in a blender for a terrific "milkshake." By still having a PEG tube, this is a bonafide prescription which is delivered to my home monthly.

This product shipped overnight which was a real surprise! I sent it to someone I know who is older and frail. She says the chocolate and strawberry are her favorite and she drinks two a day. After two months she gained ten pounds! I have them on auto shipment and I am very happy with the product.

UPDATE: 3/3/13
This truly is a remarkable product and I have seen it put the weight on people who need it badly. 7 stars!

Ensure Plus Complete Balanced Nutrition Drink, Ready to Use, Butter Pecan, 24- 8 Fluid Ounce Bottles In 1998 I had cancer of my throat. For the radiation treatmemnt they had to remove all my teeth. The result was - no teeth and elimination of half my saliva glands. The doctors told me that 4 bottles of Ensure Plus would give my my daily requirements of calories and protiens plus 24 other vitamins and minerals. So for 10 years I have been on this diet. For the record I am 85 years old and relatively healthy. I have maintained my weight at 178 lbs. My doctors think that's great considering I'm 6'1" tall. Now thats the reason I use Ensure Plus. But, the most important is that it tastes great. They have about five flavors to appeal to any taste. They are nice and creamy. And, can substitute for food when taking medication that requires food. I have Amazon send me four cases every month on the Subscribe and Save program. This program includes shipping for free. This makes it about a dollar less per six pack than in the store - and it comes right to your door.

I have trouble gaining and maintaining weight (believe me, it's not as fun as it sounds) and Ensure helps me from looking too weak. It packs a huge amount of calories and actually tastes pretty good. An added benefit is that it's completely lactose-free, making it perfect for vegans or those who are lactose-intolerant.

I had a bit of a medical problem of severe anemia. I had hemorrhagic bleeding where I lost 4 pints of blood (almost half my blood supply). Despite the hospital's best efforts they could not stop the bleeding. I finally did Yarrow (herb sold here on Amazon) that stopped the bleeding completely.

But it took great effort (2 months) to rebuild my blood supply. I did "Blood Builders" and a vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 supplements (stimulates hemoglobin) to stimulate Red Blood Cell Production. All sold here on Amazon.com

Also, had a very stressful event in my life that made me so stressed out, I completely lost my appetite, for about a month.

I am 5'4" and went down to 91 lbs. I was very weak and tired. I didn't feel like eating which made my weight loss and anemia even worse. I drank about 2 Ensure Plus as well as Ensure's Protein Shake (chocolate) and Ensure's Muscle Health (chocolate) each day.

It kept me alive! And it helped me maintain my weight and eventually gain weight. And gradually I started eating solid foods. But the Ensure not only kept me alive and helped me gain some weight, but also helped me rebuild my red blood supply.

I WILL SWEAR BY Ensure! IT IS A GREAT PRODUCT! It is a life saver if you ever lose your appetite but need to keep your nutrition and weight up this is the answer.

I've tried many different meal/nutrition shakes and I feel confident in saying this is one of the best. A lot of the shakes are either too thick, have a chalky texture, don't taste right, or just aren't good. Ensure Plus tastes great and isn't too thick. I love that it comes in a bottle instead of a can. That way if I let it sit too long I can shake it up again. I also like how it is targeted towards people trying to increase caloric intake. Most of the shakes out there try and give you all the nutrition with the fewest calories possible. I'm underweight and wanted a healthy drink with calories.

Make sure to keep these drinks cold and shake well before you drink them. They taste great. I find myself just wanting to drink one like I would soda.

Ensure Plus chocolate and Strawberry Cream. Both taste very good, no coating in the mouth. I have cancer, no children, or family nearby. I was just laying around waiting. Now I bought new curtains, and remember to do the exercises my physical theripist taught me. My outlook and energy leval have improved!

First of all, understand that I almost never write a review of anything on amazon. This is a rare occurrence for me.

I'm currently suffering from a very low absorption medical condition, and I was literally circling the drain, having lost a lot of weight.

Almost immediately upon starting to use this Ensure Plus product (several jugs a day), I started to regain weight. Unlike other methods I have tried for getting my calories up, this has been very easy on my digestive system, and has not bothered me even the tiniest bit -- despite taking it several times each day. The jugs are very small and yet pack 350 calories in each one. Lots of protein too. The small size of the jug makes it very quick and easy to get one down. Even for a sick person, it would be easy to take. I really like the taste and the creamy texture too.

The product is safe for celiac people (gluten-free), and also does not seem to bother me at all on the lactose intolerance side of things either.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product for anyone needing to add substantial amounts of very absorbable healthy calories to their daily diet.
