When I was first assigned the seemingly daunting task of testing out 10 of the top "meal replacement shakes" on the market, I have to admit, I might have dry heaved a little bit. Because really, I assumed the content of these shakes would be equivalent to the very bile I was forcing myself to keep down. I thought of 'roided out bros sucking down beige, grainy sludge before pumping various irons, or desperate housewives chugging down mystery mixes to help them cut calories.
But when I actually tried them, my first unfiltered thought was, honestly: "Holy shit. This tastes good." Obviously, the experience is not as enjoyable as sipping on a Shamrock Shake -- but considering these MRS's are viable, healthy replacements to daily meals, loaded with good old-fashioned vitamins and minerals, and are perfect for a quick meal on the go, I must say the overall package won me over, in spite of me.
There's a meal replacing shake here for every type of person, and every variety of lifestyle. Once you find the one that's right for you, you may never want to go back to solid food ever again (just kidding… you shouldn't do that).
