Meal Replacement Drink

I've been using a meal replacement called, "Total Lean" by GNC. Its got 25g of protein and 8g of dietary fiber / 5g of soluble fiber. 17g carbs, 3g fat vitamins and minerals. Ive been using 2% milk to make it. My question is it worth taking it this way or should I switch to using Water or stop using it period? Ill substitute it for a dinner or lunch most times but i drink it once a day.

Thanks in advance

Re: Meal Replacement Drink

What are you paying for it? That sounds like a pretty crappy product with a misleading name in my opinion.

Re: Meal Replacement Drink

~300kcals is considered a meal replacement? Is that a joke?

You probably shouldn't use it in place of meal, but supplementing it additionally might be useful. It depends on your current diet and goals.
