7 posts in this topic

Can anybody please tell me if they drink the Boost Energy Drink and do they see any real results? I tried the Strawberry drink today and it taste okay but I'm curious if it really works or am I throwing my money away?

Thanks!

The main benefit of Boost is to provide calories and balanced nutrition for people who are nutritionally compromised. So, if you need to gain weight or are unable to take in adequate calories the supplement may help you. Be sure to get the Boost Plus if you need calories. Boost and other similar supplements are expensive though, and you may be able to increase your calories in other ways that are less expensive. What results do you want to see?

I drink boost... I like Chocolate and Vanilla and they are gluten and lactose free.

Chocolate malt though is not gluten free.

Boost was suggested to me to drink by a doctor. I find that it gives me some energy and it reduces my hunger cravings. Boost sometimes makes me feel better when I am feeling sick

My goals here are to boost my energy and make sure my body is getting the vitamins/minerals it needs. I would like to gain a little bit of weight back just to prove that I can as I lost 20-pounds before being diagnosed with celiac disease.

Thanks for your input.

cleveland bob-

Boost does give you complete nutrition, but keep in mind that you have to drink about 4 cans a day to get 100% of the RDI's. If you have been malabsorping due to long term undiagnosed celiac disease, you may want to take a chewable multivitamin/mineral supplement. Chewable multi's are usually better absorbed. You may want to take double the recommended dose if you are currently malnourished. As far as "energy" goes - energy basically comes from calories, especially Carbohydrate. There is nothing special in Boost that will give you energy, other than it may help you obtain adequate nutrition if you are unable to eat a balanced diet. Boost is certainly a convenient way to get balanced nutrition, but you can probably accomplish the same thing by eating a healthy, balanced diet. Good Luck!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
