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!

Cleveland Bob :)

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!
