Nu Image Medical Shakes

I bought several packet of the shakes available through NIM. The packets have no labelling. The on line label says there are 14 servings in a packet, the forum describes them as having 110 cals - though it does not specify if this is if you use the entire packet. I also found calories of 50 and 100 posted on the site. This is really important information if I am to use the shakes as part of my 500 cal daily intake - lol! Can you please post this information. Providing a link to the entire information in a readily accessible spot on the site would be really helpful. Thanks.

so how do I mix these packets? I assume it's supposed to be mixed with milk or is it water? I purchased some as well, even though the diet instructions explicitly say "no protein shakes"... i'm truly confused.

Hello! Sorry for your confusion, but you MUST use water. Milk is not allowed on the HCG program. You may use as much or as little water as you like in order to get the consistency that you like to drink. Some prefer it thicker than others. Our eBooks say no protein shakes, because the ones you buy in your local health food or fitness store either contain sugar or artificial sweeteners. Our HCG specific protein packs use Stevia as their natural sweetener, so they are allowed. Great questions everyone!! Let us know if you have more.

I am considering purchasing the shake packets, but I have a few questions... The link that was given above only gives the shake's calories, protein, and that they're made with stevia. I have a few food allergies and need to know the ingredient list. Thanks!

Do the shakes replace one veggie and one protein or just the protein portion of the meal?

The shakes are a calorie / protein supplement, not a FULL meal replacement. In other words, when calculating daily calorie intake, make people fall below the 500 minimum mark. A replacement pack can get them to the proper intake, while boosting high value protein intake which is vital on this program. One should not eliminate regular food intake but supplementing these diet shakes. It can be done at times when proper food intake is not possible, ie. traveling, special event party where proper foods are being served. 1 of the 2 major mistakes that people do on this program is simply measuring their food daily, but NOT calculating the calories within those portions. The reason why one must measure in the first place is to determine the proper caloric intake of the meal. As stated prior, most people make the mistake of not eating enough. A supplement pack can assist them with this.

Is the pouch one serving?  or several servings per pouch?  The nutritonal fact supplied on-line is incomplete although the image of the pouch shows a complete Nutritional Facts Box (just pixelated and unreadable).
