Boost glucose control is great for maintaining a healthy weight and for balancing glucose levels. I'm hypo-glycemic and if my glucose levels fall, I feel dizzy, light-headed, and generally terrible. This is the first product I've found that IMMEDIATELY reverses the effects of a blood sugar crash. The first time I drank Boost after my blood sugar crashed, I was amazed at how good a job it did 'rebounding' me from the incident. The effect was immediate: the dizziness subsided, the light-headedness went away, and my energy came back. I was hooked. Now I use Boost Glucose Control as a meal substitute or even as a snack when I crave something sweet. The drinks are healthy, contain very little sugar #compare them to Glucerna and you will be amazed# and they are good tasting. The chocolate has a tiny bit of a 'chalky' taste, but after you drink the 1st one you won't taste it. My only disappointment, as mentioned by other reviewers, is the limited number of flavors and the high cost. I don't care for the vanilla, so that leaves me with the strawberry & chocolate. Because of the product's high cost, I'm always shopping for a better price. Any substantive number of bottles is so heavy the shipping cost is usually prohibitive. Although Wal-Mart's cost is higher than what I've found on web sites selling diabetic-oriented products, these sites charge so much for shipping that W-M is less expensive if you spend enough money to meet the free shipping thresh hold, so this is what I do. Bottom line, thank you Boost for a great product. Hopefully they'll develop more flavors; it can't be that difficult - look @ what Atkins has does. Their number of flavors in the nutritional drink line is like a kid being in a candy store-and they all taste pretty good. Bottom line, I highly recommend this product.
