Nothing replaces a big cut of meat with a big handful of veggies. Slow to digest, maximum absorption, maximum nutrients, maximum complete protein. It can't be replicated, just cook yourself a meal.

Okay, now that all the Yahoos have chimed in with completely unhelpful gibberish, lets try and answer your question:

You can buy meal replacement shakes. Atkins, Slimfast, Weight Watchers. I've never found them very filling and they don't carry me for very long.

I make my own and have a couple go-to really easy shakes:

1) 1 cup of 1% milk. 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I prefer whey). 2 Tablespoons of PB2 powdered peanut butter. 5-7 ice cubes depending on how big they are. Blend it until all the ice is ground. You said low sugar, but if you want, this shake is greatly improved with 1/2 banana.

2) 1 cup 1% milk. 1 scoop of same vanilla powder as above. 1 cup frozen strawberries. 1/2 cup frozen blueberries. Blend until the fruit is ground. Strawberries and blueberries are very low sugar fruits.

Another thing I do when I want to have a really fast and easy meal: On my day off I make a mixture of chopped red onion, bell pepper, onion and zucchini. They will last in the refrigerator all week long. In the mornings, I throw some of it in a pan with a little olive oil. Add a couple eggs (or egg whites, or egg beaters) and I've got a quick and easy egg scramble.

I disagree with almost every single previous post. In order to be successful at weight loss, you've got to get real about your lifestyle and habits. If there are times when you don't want to have to cook, you need to be prepared for it and do exactly what you're trying to do: Come up with sensible easy things you can make with little effort. If you don't prepare yourself for those times, or make the process of losing weight a big unsustainable chore, you'll end up a McDonalds on a bad day.

Good luck!

It can only be done through smart hard work and dedication.
So because she wants to be a little "lazy" by drinking a couple meals a week instead of cooking, it means she won't succeed?

Cooking can be a pain. I eat 6 times a day, every day. 4 cooked meals, one protein shake, then another blended shakes with egg whites, oatmeal, protein powder, etc.

The key to losing weight or getting in shape is doing what works and is bearable. That's why I am usually reluctant to suggest people make total 180 diet/fitness changes because they often get burnt out.

I'm in the process of working a 7th meal into my diet soon and am possibly considering it being a shake, although it'll probably end up being 8 oz meat with .5-1 cup of carbs like all the rest lol

Because I require so much calories/protein/carbohydrates/fat to maintain/build muscle. If I was to eat it all in less sittings my body couldn't process it all.

Each of my meals is basically the equivalent of 50g protein (8oz chicken) and then 1/2-1 cup of carbohydrates, typically rice, potatoes, or oatmeal.

Casein protein or milk protein isolate (80/20 split of casein and whey) will make a good meal replacement.

I personally prefer ON Gold Standard Casein in the chocolate supreme flavor, because that stuff is delicious.
