Good advice, however, my physician would not approve a gastric by pass surgery for me 6 mos. ago. On my last visit, he said we would revisit the idea of lap band. With lap band you will only loose about 40% of you BMI. I have heard some horror stories about the lap band, and no one in my family wants me to do it. So I am back to square one. I am new to this site and all the teams sound great. Undecided which one to join. emoticon emoticon

Will do! I can tell you the shakes are fantastic (except for the strawberry. Tastes real artificial I guess is the best way to put it). The mini bars are great to tuck in my purse in case of a missed meal. The bigger bars are too much for me. But I want to try the others and see what a difference it makes. Can't wait to try the smoothies. Going to have to get more bananas and some vanilla shakes. I have strawberries and blueberries in freezer. Those would be good too. Now you got me excited! Lol.

Thanks for the link to the receipes. Yes I printed out the coupon but I can get them by the case at Sam's Club. They don't take coupons. At least the shakes come from there. Now I can use the coupon on the bars. Want to try the new (or new to me) product. The Glucerna Hunger Smart. And the smoothies sound very good. I'll let you know.

The Glucerna smoothies sound VERY interesting. Where do i get receipes? I love the Glucerna products. A shake at night for my "dessert" doesn't make my glucose spike.
