Yes. Protein water.
Jesus.

From the same people who brought us the genius plan of REPLACING TWO MEALS A DAY WITH a FRIGGIN BOWL of CEREAL. As if losing weight that way is in any way a reflection of the quality of the cereal. That's just friggin unbalanced malnutition.

Gee maybe if u drink the "protein water" with it it's balanced again.

(What is with this obsession with protein? Are people aware that of all the food groups that's one amaericans regualarly get WAY MORE than they need of?)

End of rant.

(oh dear. i really can spell better than that, i was just enthusiastic.)

Ah in their defense i made it sound like u only got one bowl of cereal a day on their plan. In fact, u get two, one for each meal u TOTALLY SKIP. i bet it's an itty bitty bowl too. Sounds super healthy, ya. As natural as protein water.

Anything to sell their products ... if a company believes most potential buyers of their product want to lose weight, the company will promise weight loss for buyers of their product ... if they think most buyers want to be healthier, they will promise improved health from their products. How much nutritional information really comes from advertising campaigns from big food manufacturers? A LOT!
