Carnation Instant Breakfast

When I was a kid, my mother swore by this stuff. She said it kept her from eating too much during the day, and that it tasted a thousand times better than SlimFast. From what I can tell, itís just a nutrient-rich drink, but I might be wrong.

Thoughts?

I am not sure about it keeping you from eating too much. I use them sometimes for breakfast when I am having a crazy morning but this week I am out. They work pretty good to tide me over until lunch and I am not super hungry (but I am hungry about an hour before lunchtime).

I haven't noticed much of a change in appetite, but it does help with early morning hunger pangs. If I have a glass in the morning, it tides me over for an hour or two. So far, I like it. I just wish there were more of the strawberry flavored packets in the variety pack. They taste the best.

I used to drink them when I was a kid because I hated eating breakfast in the mornings before school. (I was never hungry that early.) As an adult, I don't really like to drink them anymore because they don't hold me over the 4-5 hours til lunch.

I haven't found one that I liked yet. I know a couple of people that drink this stuff for breakfast. They are claiming that they are not as hungry throughout the day. I wonder how many calories they have?

I used to drink them. I like them. They would replace my breakfast. But I would run out of them too fast, so now I make my own green smoothies in the morning, and they replace my breakfast and give me energy.

My husband's side of the family (hubby himself included) all like Carnation Instant Breakfast shakes because none of them like to eat breakfast early in the mornings. Personally, I'm hungry as soon as I wake up and I want actual food!!

Let me just say I went last week to Costco to get a few things, I could have sworn I grabbed the big box of vanilla and now I have the chocolate one. Like 50 packets of the stuff and I hate the chocolate one. Anyone want to trade?

Is it a bit like evaporated milk? I think I tried it once when I was little.

I have used them. They are nice when you are in a hurry in the morning. Then again, it doesn't take much to toss some whey protein, fruit, ice and milk in the blender either.
