Try IdealShakes from the brand IdealShape – they taste great, mix well with just water (aren’t gritty), are only 100 calories, and will genuinely keep you full for 2.5-3hrs!

If you’re getting hungry fast, you need to up your protein and fiber intake.  Both will help you stay full.  I use Shakeology for a shake base and, if doing it for a meal replacement, will add Greek yogurt, almond milk, a leafy green vegetable (kale or spinach), and fruit.

FWIW, losing 15-20 pounds by June (roughly 8 weeks) is an unattainable goal for most people.  A healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week.  If you were consistent only the 2pound a week loss, maybe you could do it, but I doubt just switching out a meal or two for a shake is going to get you there.

I like the Garden of Life “Meal” — vegan, gluten free, high protein, high fiber, low carb and available at a reasonable price via Amazon. (I’ve noticed it’s more expensive at Whole Foods.) I make it with unsweetened almond or macadamia milk and it’s not bad, keeps me feeling full for quite a while.

I like Body Fortress Whey Protein powder (chocolate). Blend a scoop of it with milk or Silk unsweetened soymilk and you’ve got lots of protein with few carbs. I have this on my way to work every morning; about 300 calories (200 for the whey and 100 for the soymilk) and keeps me full for 4 hours.

Have you tried switching to the keto diet? I know this isn’t what you’re asking for, but I basically cut out all carbs, started tracking my hidden carb intake (like sugar in sauces and stuff), and I lost 20 pounds in 2 months, without having to eat less or restrict calories. I’m eating a ton of cheese and bacon and fun foods. I did it for 2 full months, and then now I’m back on eating carbs sometimes (limited amount) and I’m still losing weight (just a bit slower than before).
