Awesome product. I would recommend this to all. Give it a go. I just started 3 weeks ago & have lost over 5 kilos. I just ordered again and I am looking forward to losing more weight.

Excellent product, great taste
I have been drinking the Man Shake Vegan for over two months now and find the taste to be much better than other shakes. Also, I have no bloating or discomfort associated with dairy. I am losing weight gradually and couldn't be happier. Highly recommend.

Starting to notice the difference.
I purchased the variety 10 pack, which has chocolate, Banana, strawberry, vanilla and coffee. I've been having two a day, the first at 10 am and the second at midday. I have a snack in the afternoon of fruit or nuts, than a healthy dinner. I got the shakes as I was feeling fat and making bad choices with food like chocolate bars and coke. I find it easy knowing I have it ready to go so I am not tempted to eat rubbish. After 4 days, I am sleeping better, waking up refreshed. My wife has noticed that I look better already. It's good motivation to keep going. It's an easy change, it tastes nice and the variety pack gives you a change in what you have each day. I'm glad I gave it a try.
Started my journey 39 days ago. I’m 60 and have lost 9.7 kgs. I’ve started the man challenge this week but my physical condition is not allowing me to properly do the exercises. So for 10 days now I’ve started power walking for 30-40 minutes, 3.5 kms a day. As a chocolate lover I thought the shake and bars would suffice but I don’t care for the taste of the chocolate. Happy with 4 other varieties of shakes and two of the 3 protein bars. I have finally put my mind into a good space. From the start, Shake for breakfast, apple mid morning, shake ...for lunch, protein bar mid afternoon, walk before dinner and then a sensible dinner. Lots of water throughout. I have just finished two pieces of gluten free base pizza ( better than you would think ) and a glass of wine for my weekly reward. Every week I set a small goal. This morning I was upset as my goal was 10 kgs and I was at 9.7. I’m in a good place and I thank the manshake as it’s the best option compared to other products I have tried over the years. Cheers

Nice and found it easy to drink
Have only tried coffee and choc. First time user. Can’t complain. Has a nice taste and does fill you up. Price is high compared to other shakes like VPA. So I wouldn’t buy due to $$R
Man shake waste of money
Was on the man shake for approx 5 months lost around 20 klgs But really lost the weight by 2 hrs walk every day.First $45 is complete rip off unless you are prepared to do exercise every day don't waste your money

It's Working Great for Me!
Started on the Man Shakes with the goal of losing about 30kg. I'm a bachelor who does not enjoy cooking so this is great. Working from home I was always heading for the easiest food options (ie Pie & a Coke for lunch). Man shakes have made it easy for me, 2 shakes a day plus nuts/fruit for snacks and whatever for dinner. Two weeks in and I'm down 4.5kg
They taste great for me. I just have mine with water, no problems with texture etc. Also no problems with gut changes (constipation etc). I'm adding in 30 mins walking a day so I look forward to the results.
Great stuff :)

Worst Shakes Ever - All Flavours
I tried the The Man Shake Variety 10 Pack from Coles. Not cheap for a variety 10 pack at $36. All of the flavors taste dreadful even with fruit added too them. The worst part there is an unpleasant chemically after taste. There are lots of more palatable shakes out there. Give these ones a miss. I would recommend Optifast shakes, they are still low in sugar, recommended by some doctors, and taste excellent. The other alternative shakes I have tried are the ones offered by the Healthy Weight for Live Program they also taste very good and they have a range of delicious soups as well. Product works, I have lost weight but there are better tasting low sugar options.
Great flavours and health benefits
Have tried all the flavours and I enjoy all of them (coffee being my least fave). As a person trying to lose weight, I appreciate the low carb, sugar and fat levels as well as the high protein (30g per sachet). A box of 10 sachets is also resonably priced at $36.50 from Coles. Would definitely recommend as a suitable breakfast substitute, along with a good exercise regime.
Have been able to lose over 10kg in about 4 months without being to picky with what I eat for dinner or on weekends (I use the shakes Mon - Friday for breakfast and lunch). Can be a bit of a shock at the start but with some dedication was able to make it a routine. Only flavor I haven't enjoyed is Coffee everything else has been great. I plan to keep on using it after reaching my weight goal as it will help me not go back to bad habits. Great product and couldn't be happier I stuck with it.

I bought the variety pack. I took only one sachet per day for 3 days, so half the recommended amount.
Like another reviewer, suffered severe constipation so I stopped.
Why are there no warnings about this anywhere? There is nothing on the pack itself, nor on the website.
I respect Adam MacDougall but there should be warnings.

Tastes really good, way better than my wifes optifast which i found gross. Every manshake flavour is absolutely delicious and i look forward to waking up and making some to start the day. Started on Manshake 18 weeks ago having 2 manshakes a day instead of 2 meals (still eat a proper healthy dinner) i started on 128kg and now are 110kg and am full steam ahead and loving it. Adam MacDougall is a legend, thanks so much!. Adam you are as awesome with health drinks as you were out there in origin next to Girdler busting through Wendell Sailor tackl...es!... Everything is going great, i am feeling great and so far i've lost 18kg in 18 weeks and loving the whole experience. I'm very impressed with manshake and how yummy they are and enjoyable to drink!
Not bad. But poor marketing from chemist.
Bought this from the local chemist. I spoke to the female attendant and asked her if it come in small trial packs and her response was no. only if you buy a shaker you will get two small packs. One choc mint one coffee. None of which I like...So I fork out $44. for one large bag of chocolate flavored shake. Which is not bad tasting. no weight loss yet ,but it's only a week, so time will tell. Now I get on The Man Shake web site and guess what! They sell a Man Shake Variety Pack. 5 Flavors in a 10 pack. And supermarkets sell the Variety Pack. . my fault for not shopping around.

Tastes Great and Really Healthy
I originally started on the Vegan Man Shake to lose some weight, like everyone else I guess. I have lost the weight that I set out to lose and now I continue to purchase it (and the Chocolate Greens because they are brilliant) because it has got so much good stuff in it and helps me better regulate my weight. I use it a lot for work lunches because of the convenience, with some store bought vegan muesli bars (no vegan Man Bars yet) and bananas.
It is great that they took the initiative by selling a Vegan option and I hope that it goes well for them.
Plenty of water
I have been on the shake for 4 months, I add 800ml to my shake not the 400 you state, it still has a very strong and yummy taste, ( especially the birthday cake) I have shake for breakfast, chicken and salad wrap for lunch and shake for tea or dinner. I also have your man bar mid morning and mid afternoon. I have lost 6kg but it seams to come off one week then nothing the next week. I did hope for a more rapid loss. It certainly fills me up and I have bags of energy but just wish results were a bit better. Sticking to it for now as it is very satisfying .
Purchased for $220.00.
Purchased about a months worth of product however was not able to stay on it for more than one or two days at a time as it caused severe constipation. Increased my water intake and tried Metamucil but this stuff set like concrete hence no weight loss success for me.

Questions & Answers
Hi, so I know for my body weight and height that my daily calorie intake should be about 2750 maintain, so when I work out at the gym I was told by many nutritionist that I should be at about 2300 - 2500 calories, but when you look at the meal plans you have each day only equal about 1500 for a man, which is pretty low. Shouldn't the shake be higher in calories since it's a meal replacement and not meals are about 4-500 calories per meal ?
I think the shakes are made so that you have a calorie deficit and that helps you loose weight. I am not a dietitian or nutritionist so you would be best to take the professionals advice.
Jesse R.The Man Shake
Adam is a believer in focusing on the nutritional benefits of the foods you are eating and not simple calories.
Calories in a protein like the Man Shake compared to, say carbohydrates in cereal are both going to cause a total different effect on your body, from hormones to metabolic expenditure and your health.
Focus on getting the required (controlled) portions your body needs from the right foods and not calories.
As Andrew mentioned, our meal plans are designed to help loose weight with a calorie deficit with little exercise.
If you follow a meal plan that is about 2300 - 2500 calories, you will be maintaining your muscle mass. Which is why your nutritionist would have suggested this.
In saying this, you can work The Man Shake into any diet/workout plan, regardless of the calories. You can follow a 2300 - 2500 calories meal plan and still loose weight and maintain your muscle mass by the intensity of your gym workouts. (calories in VS calories out)

What are the ingredients? Is it suitable for type 2 diabetics?
Jesse R.The Man Shake
We have quite a few diabetics who use our shake due to it's low sugar levels and low GI carbohydrates.
Our Shakes contains just 2.4g of sugar per serve, which is 10x less than some other meal replacement shakes!
It has a focus on low sugar, high protein meals which will be perfect for you to keep your blood sugar stabilised.
Our recommended meal plan is also created by our accredited dietitian with a focus on low sugar, high protein meals which will be perfect for you to keep your blood sugar levels stabilised.
As you know, diabetics need a balance of healthy carbohydrates, good fats and protein which is what our shake is all about to keep blood sugar in the target range.
If I have it for breakfast and dinner, and not having any Carbs or fat for lunch, would it be possible to lose 7-10 kgs in 30 days. I would also be exercisng or running every day.
