Maybe it is because the oatmeal is high in carbs, and carbs cause cravings?
That is kinda weird... what brand of whey do you use??

I've been using flavored whey powder (no sugar) mixed with water (milk
doesn't agree with me) and eating a piece of fruit with it to get some
carbs. I also tried having some in oatmeal with berries but I was

ravenous
within a half hour of eating it. I have no idea why I can be relatively
satisfied with the liquid form but hungry after eating but that's my

problem
to solve.

Myoplex Lite tastes pretty good - try the Cappacino Ice flavor. I buy
mine at www.vitaglo.com. I don't get it pre-mixed, though, as I'm
capable of adding milk and some ice cubes to a shaker.


Just a quick question and not trying to be difficult or argumentative here.
I was looking at Myoplex lite shakes since I want to find a replacement for
HMR stuff to get rid of the sugar. I've actually been looking at a lot of
products. Anywho - one of the ingredients of the Myoplex lite shakes
(powder or premix) is "corn syrup solids." Is that sugar by another name?

I'm trying some Designer Whey right now, might try the GNC store brand next
week. Not a big selection up here. When I find one I like I'll buy online
in quantity. I'm really biding time until my dr appt. next week since I
have no idea what I'll be doing diet wise until then.

If the whole Milk stirring thing really is overburdensome and money is not
an issue, some of the meal replacement supplements like Glucerna and

Ensure
light are pretty good with Sugar.


Hey all, and I'd like to sincerely thank you all for your replies... I
appreciate them very much.

TO JULIANNE, JAYJAY and ALL: I'm inclined to go toward something like Ensure
instead. I'm looking for something in the 200-250 calorie range. My concern
is the amount of fat and carbs in the shakes. I'm wondering what type of
shake that I could have that will give me the satisfaction of Slim Fast and
the caloric energy, without being too high in fat or carbohydrates. There's
a number of different kinds of Ensure products around... What one do you
think would be the best to go with?

I'm a little scared that by giving up the Slim Fast, I'll start putting on
weight.



Only because you seem to have already convinced yourself that you will.
Think positive, it don't cost nuthin'. ;-]


But I guess it's all a marketing ploy, really, right? "Slim Fast" is
just the name...but I could be drinking anything with similar ingredients
and getting similar results, am I not correct?


It's just a matter of reading the labels, then choosing your taste
preference from the more nutritious ones. On a similar note, one
advantage to using the powder is that you choose how much fat you put in
it. I personally use skim milk, but then again, I lost my taste for the
varieties containing fat long ago.

I'm actually up in CANADA, and here we have a brand called Presidents'
Choice,


The store you go to must be in the Albertsons's family. Our local
(Chicago) chain is called Jewel, and also carries the PC brand.

and they a shake called "Ultra". Anyone tried this? It looks high in
calories, but it may be an option if anyone here has had good experiences
with it...

Also, Jayjay's idea of a Myoplex premixed shake might be good too. Is it
alright to get so much calories from protein and not carbs, though? Or will
I be too weak from the lack of sugars, if I go with those?

Or maybe a combination of 1 slim fast, 1 protein (Ensure HP or Myoplex)
might work?

The premixed factor is really important to me...I live in a pretty big city
with a fast lifestyle where I just don't have the time to do anything with a
blender just yet.


You don't really need a blender, just one of those commuter cups with a
leak proof lid. Dump in a cup of milk, rip open a pouch of mix, snap on
the lid and give it a shake as you're walking out the door. As an added
bonus in this lingering cold weather, get the all plastic variety of
commuter cup. That way you can nuke it and have a thick, warm, creamy
cup of chocolate bliss to take the edge off that frosty commute.

Maybe when the sun starts coming up earlier and its
warmer, I'll be more inclined to get up and do those sorts of things, but I
just don't have the time now.


When your health is concerned, it's really important to make the time.
Progress doesn't wait for conveniences' sake.

What kind of resources does your Doctor offer you for nutrition? Just
advice, or prescriptions too? May I ask?

I'm just trying to get a feel if I am the only one on something. It seems
so.

October 2002: I was originally about 182 lb, 5'5, Male, and I started taking
Meridia in Oct 02 to about December 2002 or a little later, maybe January
(10s and then 15s). I then tried Ionamin (Phentermine) for about a month. It
makes you sketchy. I believe I was hovering around 172 by this time. I was
eating quite a bit still, and not exercising regularly.

August 03: I then went on Wellbutrin in August of 03, and I was around 172
at the time. I also started Slim-Fast. I went to about 167 while on Wellby.

February 1, 04: Joined a gym, and was still on the Slim-Fast program, and
exercised 3x a week. Started at 167 and went down to 160.

February 19, 04: Started Meridia 10 and then went to 15mg. Was 160 lb.
Vigourous exercise 5 times a week for 30 minutes (cardio) or 20 minutes
cardio/20 minutes weights, keeping on Slim Fast and medium-carb/low-cal
diet. Heading toward 150 lb.

Today: 153.5 lb.

So that's about 30 lb in about a year.

Anyone got similar results? I think the commitment to exercise has made all
the difference. I was such a lazy ass before, but at some point, you just
have to say enough is enough, eh? Where will it get you if you don't, I
figure?

Also, anyone had any trouble getting their insurance companies to cover this
with the right paper work? My BMI was over 30 at the start of treatment, and
I have a family history of stroke, so I should be covered, but I'm waiting
to hear back on it.

Thanks all, and the best of luck to everyone's weight loss.
