When I received these I followed the instructions to the book, I watch what I eat and go to the gym 3/4/ times a week.
Took these for a about a week, they didn't make me feel fuller but left me very very bloated and didn't even loose any weight at all not even an ounce....very disappointed, so I am returning these.

These drinks helped me!
These drinks have helped me to lose over 3 stone since January. I don't have any problems mixing them or with the taste. I only take two a day as I never feel like eating breakfast. If I had one of these drinks before I know I wouldn't be able to eat my breakfast, this works for me. The one problem I have had with these is they are not always 30 in each box the last order I received had 27 in one box 29 in another then 31 in the next!!! I contacted customer service who are arranging a collection of the 27 box which is going to be replaced. Someone needs to look into this.

You have to commit and not just hope,
Looked at the reviews before I wrote this one, to see whether there were any common themes.
My issue is not really a weight one, it's a portion distortion issue.
I found the strawberry sachets very sweet, but bearable, but have to comment that the new vanilla flavour tasted like industrial dust, with a touch of vanilla! Even when I added milk..I found the taste unacceptable and reverted to the strawberry.
I think you need to commit to 3 sachets a day from the start, to get into a regime to have an effect, and not start with adhoc use.
I had no bowel/tummy issues, and I found that the sachets worked too well, in that I didn't feel hungry for most of the day and had to remind myself to eat.
You do need to focus on a healthy diet and not drink carbonated drinks as they make you bloated and "windy"normally.
I will persevere with slim-be as quick fixes are a waste of time and I don't have to go to humiliating weighing sessions or count calories, and no-one needs to know I'm using the system unless I choose to tell them. I think I would like to try a banana flavour.

Severely upset stomach
I got this and had high hopes. It did upset my stomach and I thought I could cope with it. Unfortuantely, in the end the 'toilet episodes' increased and I could not tolerate them anymore. Had to return.
