Dieter friendly items?  
Heyo, I have some random questions, mostly related to diet materials.  I figure that a lot of people have weight-related New Years resolutions, so it's a good time to post questions, haha.


Meal replacement drinks?
At home, I was used to using meal replacement drinks (Slimfast, or other similar drinks) when I was in a hurry and needed something pretty filling to drink on the go.  It was also a good way for me to control my food intake and whatnot.

My question is, do these kinds of drinks exist in South Korea? Can I buy them at a supermarket such as Lotte Mart or E-mart?  If they exist, what are they called? If there's no pre-canned drink, I'd be open to trying some powders or other suggestions.

Any input would be very helpful.

Natural teas / others?
I'm open to trying out some new things here in Korea, so.. are there any sort of dieters teas or herbal supplements that you know of? Teas, supplements, specialty foods.. if you have any experience with this you'd like to share, let me know. :D  I'm open to learning about these things.

--
Alright, that's it. Let me know if you have any input, even if it's not EXACTLY what I'm looking for above. I'm just curious about what kinds of options people use here. :D  Even if it's outside of those categories.

I believe you can find a ton of these products in Korea... they just won't be the brands you recognize. I have no actual experience with them, but there is a huge craze in Korea for health products, especially for weight loss. They're also infatuated with knowing the "health" benefits of all sorts of products. I remember my Korean friend and her mom drinking these "cereal teas" (one's Job Tear's tea mixed with other grains) for their diets/health.
