Meal replacement sugar content?

I've been kicking around the idea of meal replacements for say, two or three out of four or five total meals, but I have insulin resistance and need to watch my sugar intake. Are meal replacement shakes and bars (like Slim Fast, for example) typically high in sugar?

The strawberry powder you add milk to states per 270ml serving the nutritional sugar values are:
Carbohydrate (g) 35.0 of which sugars (g) 30.6

Other snacks and bars look anything up to the value of 13 which sugars,

Not sure how that would suit?

I would consider Slim Fast to be high in sugar, but it depends on what your limit is per meal. To me, 30 grams of sugar per serving is a lot, but you might not be able to find any meal replacements with less than that. (Maybe Atkins?)

Thanks for the input. I guess I will just have to read the labels on all of the different meal replacement options out there or maybe order something off the Internet that is specifically meant for people who have to control sugar.

If you're insulin resistant I would advise against going with meal replacement shakes as they tend to be very high in sugar.

What motivated you to look at meal replacement shakes?

You can find decent ones that are low in sugar. Just go to a health store and check the labels of the shakes for the sugar amount
