Ok so I have tried EVERYTHING as far as meal replacement drinks, powders, gels..... When those times come when food just doesn't feel good going through or if I want to add calories I want something good to drink but I dont want all those nasty preservatives, additives and sugars/oils that you find in typical drinks. I have always searched for a healthy alternative but no luck....last night I was walking through my health food store and came upon ORGAIN meal replacement drinks. I got so excited - you have no idea! This is just what I have been looking for - 255 calories and only good stuff inside! Had to share the good news because I am sure, like me, a lot of you have been searching for something like this.

You have got to be my fairy godmother! I'm on coumadin right now and I've been searching for a meal replacement drink that doesn't have vitamin K (which alters the effect of coumadin) because I can't stand eating breakfast....now I have one to go buy! I'm so excited!!!! Thanks for posting!

For those looking for no dairy, I am a big fan of Mix One drinks!
27 Year old married female lawyer.  Diagnosed w/ CD 5 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For Crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).

it looks really good, but the milk concentrate and whey concentrate, might be issues, everything else looks really good

Thank you very much for posting this. Although like some of the other members i am currently on a dairy free diet, but its not set in stone permanent as of yet. But this is definitely a great product that even if i don't end up being able to drink it myself ( i hope i can soon) i will definitely be sharing it with others asap!

Dairy doesn't bother me (as far as I know), but at $42, or £26, for 12 drinks the Orgain is fearsomely expensive. And at 255 calories per drink, one drink doesn't even suffice as a meal replacement.

While I really don't suffer as badly as many here, I'm still feeling fed up enough to consider replacing dinner with a liquid supplement if no joy comes from my hospital appointment in March. I think by the time I finish learning to drive, a McDonald's milkshake will be about the limits of what I can afford ;p

Actually, now I think about it McDonald's milkshakes aren't even that cheap. But they are filling, not that I've had one for about 15 years.

Nesquik chocolate powder it is then.

PS: On a more serious note, Absorb Plus looks good but also highly expensive.

I am going down to my local HYVEE to see if the dietician will carry this. I'm so into the complex carbs, fiber and the easy to digest veggies ... I am okay with some milk. I was given Ensure in the hospital and kept throwing it up ... as it has trans fats in it!!! Heck, I think I'll suggest it to the dietician in the hospital too.

Thanks for sharing. I actually make my own someone similar shake: green food (dehydrated veggies/fruits), fiber, brown rice protein, Intestinew (builds lining in intestine) and rice milk.

Also, a product you might want to check out too for helping reduce inflammation as it put me in remission a few years ago and is approved by FDA for reducing internal inflammation which is hard to acheive for a food grade product ..

I've got to wait for my next pay check to order some from pharmaca.com ... there is a similar knock off called RevitalX which is $20 cheaper.
Diagnosed with Crohn's 2004 via pill camera    Imuran (6MP) kicked into remission (along with modified diet) so went off in 2006.
 
2009/2010 acute flare and hospitalization - put back on Imuran. Currently taking 55 mg prednisone.
Current problem - protruding thrombosis hemorrhoid.
