Shakes?

Anyone ever try nutritional shakes to get extra nutrients/vitamins? A friend at work has Crohns and she has been drinking a shakeology shake every morning for 2 years and says the ingredients is amazing with all the vitamins and minerals. Anyone try this?

I used to make my own at home. Calorie intake was an issue for me early on, so mine were a mix of eggs, milk, ice cream, sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Lots of calories, some decent protein and a bit of fat mixed into a tasty drink. Not very light though. It could sit a little heavy on a warm day so it tended to be more fall/winter.

I was drinking the Premier Protein in shakes before surgery. Used to get a case of 24 at costco. The surgeon was big on getting protein before surgery

Ok, thank you for your responses. I ordered a sample pack of the shakology, they are packed with vitamins, nutrients and lots of good protein, so I will give it a try and let you know how it goes.
