The protein drink sounds good. I try to stay away from artificial sweeteners and coloring, but that's just a personal choice. Lots of people have no trouble with them. I don't know anything about some of the ingredients of the fat shredder so I can't say anything about it. You might want to read online about some of them to see if there are side effects. I wonder about something marketed as a fat shredder, though. I think the best way to burn fat is naturally, through diet and exercise. Hope that helps. Good luck with your program!
