I have not tried this. I gave up on the other meal replacement bars/shakes. Too expensive with kids who could eat several a day. It was better than candy and such, yet costs outweighed the difference for us. We have been with this company since 2002. Many other benefits are keeping us with this company.

I used Melaleuca laundry detergents and liquid oil. I like it very much. And my guests always ask what is it. I was looking in the internet for some natural products and found this site http://melaleuca.pissedconsumer.com/ . Now I'm a fan of Melaleuca. melaleuca.pissedconsumer.com/

This is a page with the fiberwise breakfast replacement type stuff. I also saw proflex shakes, but I think they were even more expensive than the Access. Good luck with finding something that works for you. Hope I've helped some. :)

My understanding was that the Access was more for working out/weightloss, but at the time I was in it, they had other protein shake type stuff that was supposed to replace meals. I can't remember the name off the top of my head, but I might go in a minute and check the website. I had been cleaning with vinegar and baking soda before then, and even occasionally made my own detergent, so it wasn't cheaper, and when I started couponing it got even further from the cheapest I could get that would work. In my mind though, health is a priority, do what you need to for your kid.

Myself and 3 other friends allready share a membership. I can't use any other laundry detergent or my 3 year old gets blister like sores on his body.
I also love their cleaning products- they are cheaper then in the store.
The only reason I was even looking at this is because I was looking for a protein shake allternative for the first thing in the morning.

Okay, I have done the melaleuca thing before, and I do really like some of their stuff, but if you are getting into it to "replace" stuff that you buy at the store and supposedly save money you won't.

As far as the Access stuff goes, I like the Access bars. The explanation I got was not that they were really supposed to give you a ton of energy for your workout or anything, but that they keep the lactic acid from building up in your muscles so you can work out longer and harder than without it. I found that it did help in that regard, but I don't know if I was very athletic if it would do the same thing, they also helped me deal with heat when I would go clean at my Grandma's and she had her heat up to 80 or 85 at least. But I also have health issues other than weight, so they might affect my results.

I think we need to remember Occam's Razor, which says that the simplest solution is usually the right one. Spark (and every good weight loss program) is full of wonderful, inexpensive solutions about food for losing weight. Buying products that offer some "secret" method of energy or weight control are unnecessary. Believing that there is a "secret" product out there to help lose weight is the attitude that makes us susceptible to being scammed.

Ever mix 4 oz of orange juice and 4 oz of milk? Might sound awful, but it tastes like the orangesicle it would be if you froze it. And it offers carb and protein for working out. And it's cheap and readily available. Just one of a million cheaper better solutions, and available to anyone.

I sold Melaleuca for a while and it was the biggest ripoff company ever. You have to buy so many points for yourself per month to stay a representative. It was so expensive. I bought the Access bars because i didn't need to buy cleaning products or vitamins every month. They were okay, but very expensive and there are other things out there that are much better than they are. I didn't really feel the difference when i took them 15 minutes before a workout. you are better off eating an english muffin with peanut butter before you work out and get the same effect. I don't recommend them- i still have some sitting in the cabinet which i should just throw out.

I wouldn't trust this company. My friend was taking it and was going to sell it. She was trying to get me in it. She is studying to be a vet. She has cats and rats. Well her rat was sick and one of the products was for pets or safe for pets. It killed her rat. She was so upset. She told me not to get into it. I'm glad I didn't.

I tried some of their chocolate protein bars and powder several years ago I thought they tasted good but they really didn't fill me up any more than a regular granola bar. For the price it wasn't worth it for me (once I added in shipping it got crazy because of where we live).

$1.20 didn't seem to bad for a meal.

Sounds like an awfully expensive 15 calories, which is all "energy" is.
