Today we’re reviewing a product called RightSize which was an affordable shake which worked pretty well. Let’s start the breakdown.
RightSize 30 serving tubs are sold at $50.00 per container which ends up around $1.66 per meal. This is slightly above the ’10′ rating of $1.50. However, while we suggest you try these shakes first, you can, in fact, get the price down to $1.20 per serving by getting a 90-Day Supply for $215.70. It saves you money in the long run. It’s a big investment though and you should really be sure that RightSize is something that works for you before making that kind of leap.
Right Size use to own the number two spot on this website for 2011, because the value category used to have them at 9.6. However, because of complaints from users about poor customer service in regards to returns and continuity, as well as, a lowering of the quality of the shake we lowered the value of the shakes. If they don’t value their customers, they don’t deserve a top 3 spot. They currently offer a 30 day supply at $10 +P&H if you commit to a continuity at $87.50 per month. It is a little unclear on their website when that charge will occur.
RightSize no longer uses a proven hunger-blocker. They do have a low amount of soy protein but a good amount of fiber. When we drank the shake we felt unsatisfied after about an hour, (not necessarily until our next meal).
They have really lowered the nutrition profile of this shake. It isn’t even close to what we’ve seen from some of the other powerhouse shakes like IdealShape and Shakeology. They have 7 grams of soy protein per serving which is very low and contributes to keeping the calories low at 100. They do decent with 6 grams of sugar. 15 Grams of carbs is passable but not the best we’ve seen for those Atkins fans out there. They sit comfortably at pretty much 50% of your RDI(Recommended Daily Intake) in vitamins and minerals. By the way, it is impossible to find the nutrition facts on the website and now it makes sense.
Now taste is always a hard one because we’re grading these things on a curve. We have a hard time giving anyone above a 9.5 because we don’t want to give you the impression that your meal replacement shake is going to taste like a chocolate-caramel macchiato…because well, it’s not. That said, RightSize has 4 flavors and they all tasted pretty good. Eventually we settled on a 9.0 but we will say that not everyone on the staff loved the shakes
They have a few other products they sell, but their “program” was pretty lackluster to be completely honest with you. If you already have a program you’re working and want a pretty affordable shake to supplement it than RightSize might be worth considering.
We answer a lot of emails each day, but it’s gotten to the point where a large percent of them are unhappy Right Size customers trying to return the product. Demanding refunds, threatening lawsuits, claiming hold times longer than an hour on their customer service calls. We’re not tied to this product in any way, but people have gotten so desperate to air their grievances that they are asking us what we can do to help them. It’s ridiculous and, unfortunately, there is little help we can provide beyond recommending that they throw an unhappy comment in their review and sitting on hold for as long as necessary. A guarantee is a guarantee. Not everyone is going to like your product, accept that, and get the customer service required to handle it. Even customers that return the product can give you glowing reviews.
