I can see what you mean because the phenylade40 that i drink i have no desire to eat and i drink abotu 2.5 pouches more then i should. Of course when i was a kid without drinking the formula i had no problem only just eating once a day. Now with the formula i could technecally go without without eating as i get more then enough nutrients with the formula that i have now. Of course with 10 pounches a day i get 840 calories and then if i do i eat maybe a small dinner or something like that.

I have been wanting to work out for some time and use my formula as a protien shake but i am not sure about the adverse effects of not eating after that.
