Generally, they seem to suit some people who need the daily regimen and short "quick fix". But for others their weight-loss falters or even reverses once they have completed the course and gone back to eating real food. For either a quick kickstart, or rapid, controlled weight-loss for the short term, they seem fine (if rather expensive).
As soon as the artificial constraints of a regime of diet shakes are removed then I suspect some people simply have not developed any skills to make portion control choices about real food and will be doomed to repeat the shake-cycle once their weight rises again to an unacceptable level. To summarise: shakes may not give a person the opportunity to practice good eating habits that last for the rest of their lives.
Personally, I think a person's chance of long-term weight-loss is greater if they learn to take control of their food intake themselves through formation of good eating habits, via discipline and education.
