Ensure Vs Boost Nutrition Drink
Boost: Both.Get a more detailed answer ›
Both are good: Both ensure and boost have about the same number of calories (250) as well as more in the plus varieties. Both suppy good amounts of protein, and can be used if you are lactose intolerant or need a gluten free diet. Cost and taste could be a factor, and are both better if chilled. My patients seem to like them both about the same. Consider carnation instant breakfast if money/taste is a concern. ...Read more
Energy Drinks: First there is no medical or health benefit from 'energy drinks'. These drinks are usually high in caffeine and/or sugars. I would read the labels and if there are any carbs in the drink recommend that you not ingest it. But, in general i would recommend avoiding these unnecessary and non-nutritional drinks all together. ...Read more
In a way: The drinks or shakes are formulated to satisfy your hunger, give you energy, and prevent protein malnutrition. However, the idea behind diet drinks or shakes is to lower the total amount of calories that you ingest per day thus allowing you to lose weight. They are replacing meals but not completely (calories). ...Read more
Apart from healthy eating,to gain more nutrition-good idea to make hot chocolate with nutritionally rich cocoa powder,vanilla extract & stevia daily?
Sounds good: So good, in fact, that if this is what you want to drink, drink it and don't even worry whether this is our idea of a perfect ideal beverage choice. If you are healthy, just staying physically fit is much more important than obsessing over food choices. I would bet you know this already. Enjoy the chocolate. ...Read more
Yes: Much better than sodas. Plain water is good too, and does not pollute the earth with more plastic bottles. Drinks with high sugar content such as juices or sodas will raise your blood sugar too quickly, then drop just as quickly. Watch out for artificially sweetened beverages. There are health risks associated with many of the synthetic sweeteners. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High Protein/Low Fat: There are lots of energy rich foods. Add a handful of almonds, hazelnuts or cashews to your daily diet. Increase your intake of whole grains, particularly bran cereal. Eat more fish. Don't skip breakfast or any other meal for that matter. Drink more water and consume less sugar. For quick boost power snack with peanut butter on a whole-wheat cracker or Greek yogurt with nuts. ...Read more
Can we give amway nutritional supplements like multi vitamins, vit c, protein powder, fruits and veg concentrates regularly to children of 5 -10 yrs?
Energy drinks: often contain a lot of sugar or artificial sweeteners and chemicals. They are not a good way to gain weight. Please see your doctor to make sure all is well medically and then consider seeing a nutritionist who can create a food plan for you.

I am 61, female, vegetarian. Eat a lot of Morningstar vege protein food with Boost drink supplement & vitamins. Can I get adequate nutrition this way?
No Boost.: There's lots of very tasty protein in many Morningstar products. You do not need boost in addition. You can get what you need from better tasting food and freshly prepared fruits, grains, and vegetables, properly prepared. High protein diets are not healthy even if due to veggie sources (although High veg protein diets are better than high animal protein diets when we're talking risk of cancer). ...Read more
How quickly does your body benefit from vitamins found in vitamin rich shakes such as carnation or boost supplement shakes?
Too much sugar! : Please read: http://www.Weightymatters.Ca/2011/10/badvertising-boost-is-it-really.Html?M=1 with 28 g of sugar in this product constituting 43% of the calories, you re getting very little protein in this shake, unless it's been reformulated by nestlé's. All of the corn syrup and sugars are gmo. It also has wheat products so if you're allergic to wheat this is a problem. Any energy that you might perceive you're getting is from the sugar load, not from the protein or vitamins listed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What supplement or vitamin will help boost metabolism? I work out and eat well. Seeking safe boost from vitamin source.
Would drinking 1 serving of whey protein and one b-12 vitamin, each morning, help promote a higher metabolism for weight loss?
Absolutely Not: Adds: As animals we need little to no carbohydrate (all sugars, simple & complex) intake. Yet most humans have a sweet tooth. Not all fruit can be sold before spoiling, esp. not at higher prices, plus people will not buy fruit what has been frozen, thus lots of fruits are converted to juices which can be frozen & stored smoothing out labile supply & prices. However all fruits high sugar: very unhealthy. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Would drinking a whey protein shake and taking a b-12 vitamin help promote better metabolism for weight loss?
Why, not whey: Why are you taking whey protein? What is the problem you think you have and what do you think whey protein is going to do to improve it? How are you going to measure that improvement? Eating extra calories can't help weight loss, no matter what it is. Save your money. Don't get your medical inforation from friends, tv and the internet. ...Read more
