    I’m very excited to have found your page also excited to be trying the shakes thanks and please do keep up the good work.

  2. No total calorie per shake listed anywhere, on an article about gaining weight, so the reader doesn’t know if this is going to give them the amount they want. Very amateur article.

    Thank you so much for this. Out of all the articles that I have read yours has everything that I have in my kitchen. As a response to the person above me: the calorie doesn’t show; however,with me it doesn’t matter. I’m adding my own calories I can put as many as I want and calculate them myself in my app on my phone. Great article.
