You are correct in the fact that these type shakes, like all meal replacement shakes (slimfast, ensure, boost, glucerna, HMR, medifast, etc, etc)....this is just a way to cut calorie intake for the day. There is research to support the use of meal replacments for weight loss.
And this research also shows that one "must" learn how to control their environment once they return to more traditional foods---or the weight will be regained; and there is also research that supports the use of some meal replacements for the rest of one's life for weight management.
