My elderly parents drink a lot of this and my husband and I have found out that we like it too. It is a good nutritious drink with lots of protein. The plus variety has more calories than the regular. I am coming down from a long period of stress overload right now and anxious to get back to my calorie counting which, as a result, fell by the wayside. I am having a hard time getting started and I think I will try switching gears by just drinking Ensure only for a couple of days. I could have 4 a day, I think I can live with that. Maybe some fresh veges to go along with.
