Thin and watery
Thin and watery, not filling at all and tasted like a cup full of artificial sweetener. Will be sticking with herbalife and paying the extra instead of taking the cheaper option.
Purchased in January 2021 at Chemist Warehouse for $10.99.
Terrible, thin, watery & not filling.
Yesterday I decided to change to the fatblaster shakes as they were cheaper compared to the Optislim Platinum I was on since 1st July.
I purchased 3 boxes - Raspberry, Cappuccino & Vanilla. What waste of money, the shakes are watery even made in the nutri bullet. Optislim Platinum is thick not watery compared to fatblaster shakes.
Very disappointed!! AVOID & pay the extra for Optislim at least its thick & filling unlike the Fatblaster shakes.
Purchased in November 2020 at Chemist Warehouse for $75.00.
All kinds of foul
Just bought the vanilla plant based keto shake, made as per instructions, normally love vanilla shakes.
But oh my goodness.
Its just foul.
I tried adding more milk but its still bad, can't imagine what just using water tastes like. Urghh
Purchased in October 2020 at Woolworths for $30.00.
60% sugar is definitely not a healthy way to diet.
I've never used this product. I did, however, go to the fat blaster website to check out their products. When I checked the ingredients of their reduced sugar Fatblaster shake mix, the sugar was 20g per 33g serve mixed with skim milk. That is just ridiculous and this product should be banned.
Flavour gross. Doesn't work
The flavour was so disgusting and after using it for a few weeks it did nothing at all. Wish I hadn't spent the money on it as it did nothing.
Purchased in August 2019 at Chemist Warehouse for $50.00.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
This product is nothing more than a milk shake. After taking it every lunch and patiently waiting for a month, yes, my weight fell off, however I was starving all afternoon. It does not satisfy or control hunger levels whatsoever. Why torture yourself? I’ve now been eating ALDI low calorie meals and they are both tasty and satisfying, what’s more is that my weight has been falling off at the same level as the shakes. Finally, there’s a product in the US called ‘Slimfast’. The bars guarantee (and do) keep hunger levels at bay for between four and five hours. Don’t waste your time or money with Fatblaster shakes. They are expensive and don’t satiate adequately.

Stomach gurgling & diarrhea after consumption
Bought 2 boxes (chocolate & strawberry) from Chemist's Warehouse and started off using the chocolate shakes. Without a doubt these shakes have resulted in an upset gut and bouts of diarrhea 2-4 hrs after consumption. Yes, I've lost weight but there are other shake products out there that do not have these side effects. I would avoid at all costs and agree with some of the other comments "cheap is not necessarily best" for something like this.
Try something else
I have been using this product for 3 weeks now with a diet plan and regular exercise and haven't lost a single kilo. It is full of sugar that's why it tastes so good, but that defeats the purpose. My friends are losing heaps on the man shake.
Not worth wasting your time!
Been using it to replace breakfasts & lunches along with calorie counting. Also gym 7 days a week focusing mostly on cardio. Finding my body is shaping up. But that would be gym. No much weight has shifted. Lost about 1-2kgs in 3 weeks.
Doesn't make me full. After about an hour or 2 I'm starving.
Tastes like an overly sweet milkshake
It is so sweet that it is repulsive, anyone who thinks you can lose weight by eating desert which is effectively what this is clearly lacks nutritional knowledge. Our society has been trained to expect everything to be super tasty resulting in salt and sugar overdose. Learn to enjoy plainer subtle flavors the way we are supposed to. This product is loaded with glucose syrup and dextrose why would anyone take syrupy if they were trying to lose weight. I use it if i want a milkshake, that is all it is good for and its not even very good for that. One word ,useless.
On this stuff for 3 weeks and didn't lose not even 1 kilo I spent heaps on this product when I could of been spending my money on Herbalife the product that actually works been on Herbalife for on week and have lost 2 kilos and 22 cm so just goes to show you cheap is not always better
Only lost 1 km in 3 weeks
To say I'm disappointed in this product is an understatement. I have religiously stuck to 4 shakes a day (with water not milk) & 1 healthy meal (lean meat/poultry and vegetables/salad) for dinner and have only lost 1 kg in 3 weeks. I also do 30 mins of moderate exercise every day.
Be careful, very high sugar content !
Fatblaster is the worst VLCD meal out there. Yes it's cheap but the reason it's cheap it's because they filled it up with sugar ! Just look at the label and you'll be shocked at the percentage of sugar for every 100g you consume.
I returned this after a few days and demanded refund. I recommend either optislim platinum or optifast
Makes me sick!
I've had 2 shakes. Bought the chocolate one and it tastes amazing although not long after it makes me feel bloated, sick and I vomit. Guess this product like most things isn't suited to everyone.
Gained 5kgs since starting these shakes
They do taste nice though and I quite enjoy them, but I cannot explain the sudden weight gain. I work out for 40 minutes a day, 6 days a week and at 5'9" and 75kgs, I'm not overweight. But going from 70kgs to 75 in a couple of months, something is wrong. I've had my thyroid levels checked also and they are normal.
Overall the flavour is great and I was looking forward to drinking it each time. It filled me up and I didn't feel that hungry after I had the shake. I was happy to have a salad if I was still hungry and that seemed to satisfy my hunger pains or I just kept drinking more water.
I have stopped taking it and will probably not take this again, the shakes bloated me up and my insides were screaming out for me to stop taking it. I was so bloated and uncomfortable my stomach was cramping so much from all that air! I found it hard to get my stom...ach back under control. I then substituted mixing the powder with water to see if there was a difference and there wasn't in both taste and it still bloated me up. Even though I was exercising daily and followed the plan exactly as per the instructions I immediately felt bloated and put on 2 kilos which I was not happy about. I am not heavily overweight but my aim was to lose about 10 kilos. I feel much better now that I have stopped using the shakes, I had no choice. I will probably investigate some other option however I am still keeping up with my regular diet and exercise and my weight is now under control. I bought the chocolate flavour and loved it, it tasted just like a thick shake and not not like a protein drink. Even with water it didn't taste any different. I also like the thick consistency. You consume too much milk in one day depending on how much you are planning to drink. I was aiming for 3 per day and it was too much I felt so bloated and uncomfortable. I am probably lactose intolerant so this was like a quadruple dose of milk, the powder is also mixed with milk powder so this was an overdose for my body.
I tried a couple of their shakes, tasted HORRIBLE!!!Just like concrete. A waste of my money and my time.YUK.Their strawberry shake tasted like coloured water. :(
