I’m so glad to see other people feel the same way. I purchased the shakes to get the 12 weeks online as I lost all my original info, but I loved Geoffs enthusiasm and I miss the cd’s (got lost in numerous moves) that helped me get back on track and motivated. The whole thing was to eat protein at least every 3 hours to get your body in a ketogenic state where you burn fat when you sleep, and the whole eating foods uses energy, so the replacement shake thing has me sus too. I also loved the high and low day so there wasn’t a plateau where you stopped losing weight. I think I’ll keep the shakes for emergencies and stick with the original method.
