I am a middle aged woman needing to lose weight. I am allergic to nuts. I did my research and tried this product. I mix it with coconut milk and 1/2 banana every morning. I have lost 26 pounds in 10 weeks. This keeps my energy and nutrient levels up and makes it easy to a tay on target. I tried the creamy vanilla and didn't care for it. The Dutch chocolate does the trick and I am not tired of it. This is the choice to make!
