My biggest complaint when trying to diet and using meal replacement products is that they always seem to leave me in a state of dire hunger within 2 hrs of consumption. This product, added to my blender of spiruteen protein drink and juice is phenomenal and I vouch for how well it keeps me on track w/o having a sudden crash and the overwhelming need then to want to stuff my face. They recommend 1/4 t. per drink, which sounds like too little, but believe me, it works just fine. One reviewer complained about it clumping, which is probably so, but if you put it in a blender (Hamilton Beach makes a terrific mini model that is perfect for making a meal replacement drink), you should have none of the clumping that someone else described. I'm definitely going to stick with this product for assisting me with my weight loss efforts!

This is such a great product! I have a condition where I can only swallow very small amount of liquid at a time, so two things were very important to me: first, that it didn't have an offensive taste, and second, that it didn't "gel" too quickly (as it takes some time for me to finish 12 oz of liquid). I'm happy to say that this product is virtually tasteless (just a slight powdery taste which isn't bad) and it doesn't "gel" instantly. If I stir the water/glucomannan mix a couple of times during the time I consume it, it keeps it's water-like consistency for at least five minutes. I'm mainly taking this product to lower my blood sugar and it really seems to help and I've lost a bit of weight, too. And the price is right! Love this product and will definitely repurchase!
