This Sparked Me!

When I need to have a meal, but don't have the time, I use a meal replacement shake to keep my glucose levels even

Slim fast shakes are about 3 dollars cheaper per 6 pack than glucerna shakes AND have 2 grams of carb less per shake!

There is a blu box Slim Fast, that contains no sugar.

    Nutritionally, for a diabetic, Glucerna is a better choice for meal replacement. It really doesn't cause a spike in blood sugar. There are a lot of different products available, too . . . shakes, snack bars and mini bars. They're all tasty.

    I am a diabetic and have used both and like the glucerna a lot better and it keeps me going better than slim fast shakes

    That's a good idea. I have to tell my mother because she is diabetic.

This is the first time that I've heard anyone talk about glucema before. I wonder why the dr. never mentioned it. I had thought about trying it. I may look into it. Thanks for the info.
