I need to lose about 40lbs. I just had my third about 3 months ago. I don't necessarily wanna diet but I'm wondering if the attain shakes are safe to use in the morning

I only drink water, about 6l a day because I'm nursing.
I'm looking for ways to feel full without a ton of calories.

I don't know much about the Attain shakes. My understanding is that they don't have any active medicinal ingredients (like stimulants or appetite suppressants), and are similar to Slim-Fast. Read the label to make sure, but I believe they are considered okay for nursing mothers - Slim Fast is.

That said, meal replacement shakes are not a good way to loose weight. Before you go this route I would suggest cutting out all liquid calories (only drink water) and start keeping a food journal (write down everything you eat and when). Those are two very simple things you can do that have been shown to have a significant impact.
