Study after study has confirmed the power of medically designed meal replacements to deliver weight loss. By delivering generous amounts of high quality protein and plenty of variety, they can satisfy the cravings and appetite of almost any dieter. With the ability to provide great nutrition, limit calories AND satisfy cravings, they simplify and supercharge the efforts of dieters.
In response to a recent post , some have asked, “How does someone get started with meal replacements?” For anyone with significant weight challenges, we recommend our comprehensive office-based medical approach. Go to TagueNutrition.com to learn more. Weight loss is difficult! Don’t hesitate to get personal assistance and an individualized plan that is designed just for you!
But, if you have just a few pounds to lose, or if a comprehensive approach is not feasible for you, our meal replacements can be a nutritional tool for almost anyone. Whether your goal is to lose weight, lower blood sugars, lower cholesterol, or simply to have healthy and affordable snack and meal options available, meal replacements can help.
One of the most common questions we get about our meal replacements is which ones to try first and which ones are most popular. Take advantage of the experience of our patients (well over 10,000 to date). They have voted with their taste buds, and we want to share those results with you!
Below is a list of the patient-preferred “Top 10” meal replacements over the past year, each containing a generous serving of high quality protein, delivering satisfaction from hunger and cravings, and the pleasure of great taste. Compared to typical meals and snacks, these “Top 10” are a “win” on multiple levels.
Patient-Preferred “Top 10” Meal Replacements:
- Chocolate and Vanilla Ready to Drink Dream Shakes
These are consistently our most preferred meal replacements. These 100 calorie shakes deliver taste, convenience, and calorie control for a fast and delicious meal or snack on the go.
- Peanut Butter Cup Bar
Introduced in 2014, these bars quickly became a top seller. The peanut butter and chocolate flavor combination in a convenient bar delivers pleasure without the guilt.
- Chocolate Comfort Bar
This chocolate crunch bar has the creamy, quality, “comforting” chocolate we all love, with the crunch of your favorite “high guilt”, high calorie chocolate bar, with only 150 calories and protein satisfaction.

Personally, this is my favorite snack, and is always a popular choice among patients. A larger portion size makes these more filling and satisfying for those of us with larger appetites.

Just add hot water, stir, and enjoy a filling 17 grams of high quality protein and great taste! This is our top selling breakfast item and the one I choose for breakfast (along with a shake) almost every day.
- Cinnamon Treat Pastry
Seven seconds in the microwave makes this a “melt in your mouth” favorite for breakfast or an evening dessert.
- Chicken Noodle Soup
Our most popular soup. Just add hot water and enjoy. Add our 20 gram protein Pasta Supreme noodles for a larger meal option.
- Cinnamon Bar
A traditional favorite bar. Easy to carry and enjoy as a cereal type bar without all the typical sugars and calories.
- Cheddar Chips
Single serving chip bags that are great for lunch or a snack at your desk or in your car! No need to ever buy those high calorie, high fat chips again! Barbecue or Sour Cream & Onion flavored chips are also available.

These powdered mixes create a generous and tasty pudding or shake, depending on how much water you add. With 17 grams of protein and 400 mg of calcium, the nutritional profile is second to none!

With convenience of ordering simple online, including discounted “auto-delivery” options, its never been easier to have tasty, nutritious, food options right at hand all the time. Enjoy!
