Formulite Testimonials & Reviews - Formulite


I came across Formulite at the ANZMOSS conference last year. The decision to switch to the product was easy and logical- more protein and less sugar- period. We ask our patients to compliment their surgery with a protein based diet and so embarking on the process with a VLCD product that’s teaching exactly this concept makes perfect sense. It tastes great and offers lasting satiety. Many of my patients continue to use Formulite after surgery which is testimony to its appeal. Glennis is passionate about her products and I can see why. Weight loss surgery and more importantly successful weight loss is a team event- Formulite is a part of that team. Nice.

Formulite is my product of choice when it comes to protein/meal replacement shakes. The nutritional profile of these shakes speaks for itself with >30g of protein, a low carbohydrate content and probiotic benefits. There is so much to love about formulite. Including that this shake is free from artificial sweeteners!

At Pharmacy NEO we like to stock and recommend brands which are a bit unique and have great formulas that really work. We love Formulite for that reason. Unlike other similar products, Formulite is not loaded up with skim milk powder. Formulite is nutritionally balanced, low in sugar, high in protein and contains probiotics and enzymes. Our customers have found it really works and they love the flavours and the variety of presentations. We are finding it continues to grow in popularity and we no sooner stock up, and we have to reorder again!

Formulite has been a fantastic VLED alternative for our bariatric patients to use. We love the fact it does not contain any artificial sweeteners and our patients suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) do not experience the same GI upset that many other meal replacement brands cause. Furthermore, the higher protein content makes it easier for us to meeting our patients protein requirements and prevent the loss of lean muscle mass. Our patients have provided positive feedback in regards to the VLED shake flavours and appear to thoroughly enjoy the high protein lupin soups. I confidently recommend Formulite as an option for our bariatric patients to used during their VLED phase knowing it will induce nutritional ketosis, shrink the liver by depleting glycogen stores and optimise their nutritional status in the lead up to weight loss surgery.

I recommend Formulite soups and shakes to my patients as a meal replacement or as an in between meal snack as part of their weight loss management plan, specifically because of the favourable nutritional profile. It is low in carbohydrates and sugar, high in protein and fibre, and contains stevia rather than artificial sweeteners. This is particularly important for people with diabetes where carbohydrates and in particular sugar, can cause spikes in blood glucose levels. The high protein formula assists with more stable blood glucose profiles and can also provide a prolonged source of energy which may improve satiety for longer periods. I have an increasing number of patients using this high quality Australian made product with positive results.

An enormous amount of time had gone into the research and development of this protein drink – so I was confident of what I was buying. Formulite is everything it says it is - a healthy balanced protein drink. Formulite tastes great and I have found that there isn’t that awful aftertaste that I get when I have used other protein drink products. The taste is great and I have now tried both the choc hazelnut and the honeycomb. They are really yum. I shake them up with some ice and I have a meal that travels with me, is convenient and satisfying. Like many people, I am balancing work, a family and lots of demands. The last thing I am focusing on is planning my food intake. That’s where Formulite comes into play for me. I replace 1-2 meals a day and know that I am still getting vitamins, minerals and will also have a heap of energy to get on with my day. It is also super convenient and easy to stay on track with Formulite.

I have used Formulite in the past as a VLED and still use it now as a protein shake. I've found along with having a great taste, it has a more natural flavour and no where near as sweet as I have found other products! I can see why my nutritionist recommended these to me as it's a great source of nutrition and a great meal replacement shake!

At Health Management, we see quite a lot of patients that are undergoing bariatric surgery and require a well formulated liquid product for pre and post surgery, as well as patients who require a rapid weight loss solution. We were previously recommending other products with higher sugar content until we discovered Formulite. With such high protein concentration, our patients often talk about how they feel less hungry and therefore less tempted when they are following such a strict regimen. We have had absolutely no poor feedback on Formulite and will continue to recommend for our patients who have a clinical justification to do so.

Formulite is our preferred brand of meal replacement at Weight Loss Surgery Support. The low sugar, high protein content is ideal for our clients both pre and post-surgery. We've also received great feedback on the taste, making is an easy dietary change to implement.

As an endocrinologist, with a particular interest in diabetes and weight control, I see many patients struggling to lose weight despite a healthy diet. The most effective diet for my patients is a very low energy diet with meal replacements. Formulite is a great product, locally produced, with less sugar and higher protein content than other meal replacements.

Dr Fiona Lee


I think Formulite is an excellent product, providing effective pre-operative weight loss with a comprehensive nutritional support profile and range of flavours to suit patients’ preferences.  Importantly, it caters for those patients with gluten sensitivity or allergies.

Mr Philip Gan

General and Bariatric Surgeon

FORMULITE is a product superior to all it’s competitors, hence why we stock no other. As a leading meal replacement and an assisted weight loss formula, you can be sure you are getting the essential vitamins and minerals to supporting your nutrition. The flavour, texture and most importantly noticeable results are all highly appreciated by each and every customer.  This is why we at MY COMPOUNDING have no hesitation in recommending no other, but FORMULITE.

Since having 3 children, I have struggled over the years to lose weight and regain my energy levels. I was thrilled to discover the Formulite meal replacement shakes as a healthy food alternative and handy snack when on the go all day. I find the Formulite shakes to be extremely satisfying and filling, and has helped to curb my appetite and reduced the desire to reach for those unhealthy quick snacks. The Shake and Take option is particularly handy for me when I am out all day and provides a great healthy alternative for a busy mum. While my journey has just begun, already I can see the benefits of weight loss and improvements in my energy levels. My experience dealing with Glennis and her team when ordering the product has been very professional and I would highly recommend this product.

I have always enjoyed exercising, but all I managed to do was stabilise my weight rather than actually lose it. Cue Formulite! I started using Formulite shakes after my workouts in the morning and used it to replace my normal snacking breakfast. The combination of proteins help me to feel satisfied, stopping me snacking, and providing me with the nutrients that I need. I usually blitz Formulite with ice, and drink it on the go, either taking the kids to school or on the way to work. You actually save time by using Formulite! It is tasty and smooth – it has the taste and consistency of your favourite milkshake. So, what are the results? Well over the last year, since I have started my Formulite journey, without changing anything else (except for stopping the snacking and replacing my breakfast), I have dropped nearly 20kgs. I feel great and it is so easy to use. It is a great product; it taste great and - most importantly – it really works.
