For me that would be Ensure and has been for 3 years now. I like many of the flavors but chocolate and pecan are my favorites. :)

http://ensure.com

3 years ago i had run out of ideas for a diet and doctors were wanting to fix the problem with surgery. I said hell no! :shock:

A good friends mother told me about Ensure. I said why not it dose not taste to bad. Acquired taste I guess. Some of it I did not care for in the beginning. LOL

But I would diet and loose weight and then gain it back plus some a few months later. Holidays were a excuse to pig out.

March 2005 I was 5'11" 255 pounds and had rather high blood pressure and closing in on diabetic sugar levels. Then at snack time at home in the evenings I would grab a Ensure. After a year i was down to 240 pounds. With no bounce back. a +/- 2 to 3 pound was about it. So went to one in the morning and one in the evening and just moderated my eating. Ate what I wanted. Today I am 216 pounds and my blood pressure is way down and blood sugar is normal.

Snack and possible life saver too. Who woulda thunk it huh? :D

Little happy to report update. Some of ya may recall I went back into the 220's range over the Summer again. Well September I went to 2 ensure drinks a day and back to moderation eating. Today on the scale I was 212 pounds. The lightest I can recall being this time of the year in over a decade. Feels so much better. :) ;)

OK guys I can now say I am addicted to Ensure. :shock: My local grocery store started selling the dark chocolate. Oh man if I had no self control I'd drink a 6 pack a day. But keep it at 1 or 2 sometimes 3. LOL :D

I just like proving doctors wrong. They said I would just have to live life as is. I may not be getting better but I can still try to do better. In the early 1990's I was told I'd be in a wheelchair by 2000. It is parked in a spare room collecting dust. :D
