I don't know what the answer is but that's a blinking good question! Let's see if you get any other replies...

I would say, marketing mainly
When I go weight training we have a protein and carb drink after to replenish the glycogen we have used from muscles (I wont mention any brand names but they all contain pretty much the same thing)
Many people have said that chocolate milk does pretty much the same thing (not milkshake)
Different to the product you are talking about, but the same principle.. especially when you do look at the ingredient labels
Real food's usually best though, with drinks to replace meals so many people end up putting weight back on as they dont track the calories properly once they go back to real food

Thanks for your reply, Simply. I totally agree that real food is best, and I am eating loads of it every day myself. But I was thinking on behalf of people who buy a Slimfast to have at work or whilst travelling, or who lash out a lot of money on Cambridge meal replacement shakes. I was just pondering really, whether real fresh milk and vitamin pills would not only be a fraction of the price, but more healthy.

Jimmy Moore once said: "I didn't lose 180 pounds. I lost 18 pounds, then repeated that nine times".

Yeah, the fibre would help fill people up. Not looked at the ingredients but know my brother who's a personal trainer has alot of knowledge on them and his blood pressure rises when one of his clients even mentions them

Anyway the protein powder, peanut butter fills me up for 3-4 and im 6ft and you feel alot less bloated than if you had two slices of toast for breakfast
