I stick with slimfast because I looked up the nutrition info way back when and realized that was the best for what I was looking for. Ensure didn't even compare to the other two because it has SO much sugar in it!
slimfast actually has more fat in it than boost but fewer calories, less sugar, and more protein. and as far as vitamins and minerals, slimfast and boost are pretty similar. so slimfast is my choice.
Thanks!! That helps!!!
Anyone else have any say?
I was in an eating disorder hospital where they made everyone drink Ensure Plus. When you first came into the program, you usually weren't allowed to eat food-- your diet was completely ensure.
I had a friend who was discharged and went to an outpatient program that specialized in using organic foods to gain/maintain weight. She actually had withdrawel symptoms for almost 2 weeks because of all the sugar that as in the ensure.
So ensure is DEFINITELY bad! Slim Fast and CIB both have almost 40g or sugar per can, so they're bad too. I would recomend making your own shakes using 1 cup 1% milk (110 cal) and 1 scoop whe protien powder (120)
Hello. I should offer up full disclosure that I work for Nestle Nutrition (owners of BOOST energy drinks).
In our research we have found that BOOST High Protien to be the best nutritional option. It does have more calories than SlimFast, however it provides way more vitamins and minerals. And the added protein helps curb cravings longer and provide extra energy for working out.
BOOST also has a new product - Smoothie - that has the same nutritional benefits but a nice alternative to the same old choc, vanilla flavors! I usually have one for breakfast!
I hope this helps. And not to sound too much like an advertisement BOOST.com has great information about all the products and how to use them as well as nutrition advise!
