In my illustrious time I have tried every diet on the planet, from the 'eat only bananas one day', 'nothing but meat the next', 'only tomatoes on the third day'; you have the picture now swirling around your brain.....scary isn't it? Then years back I went on a Low-Carb kick and lost 30 pounds. True confessions~it's the only way of eating that I can actually lose weight. I don't always stick with it but I always go back to it when my bathroom scale takes a leap forward. To each his own, 'they' say, this is my way. 
1 cup vanilla almond Silk milk
1/2 cup canned real pumpkin~not pumpkin pie filling
2 oz. cream cheese~no need to soften
2 Tbsp. Splenda~or other desirable no sugar sweetener
1 scoop vanilla whey protein
1 cup crushed ice
  Whirling, whirling, whirling....keep those blenders whirling..
I'll take the shake over the cake....only 6.5 grams of carbs...and I get 2 servings out of 1 shake so that leaves me with 3.25 grams of carbs per shake. Enjoy, it is highly luscious!
