It's shameful how long it's been since I've popped in.
I had a frustrating experience. My Mom has lots a ton of weight on Zenecal (NOT IBS friendly) and looks great and is using all the clothes I can't fit into. Thrilled for her, sad for me. So I went to one of those herbal places. Should have known better. They want you to get by on only 2 starches a day!!! Yikes! I'd starve to death and die of hunger pains! Plus, you're not allowed ANYTHING processed - even soup mixes or peanut butter! I'm not a meat fan and PB is one ofmy main protein staples. And getting by without my veggie broth? That's my afternoon snack! They have this whole thing with salt - which makes me believe that it's not a great idea anyway. Besides, other than my soups, I really don't eat salt. I don't cook with it (except in baking), and I don't put it on the table, either. Grrrrr!!!!
So, after my little rant - I'm looking for some decent protein shakes that are safe. Something available in Canada. Stephie? Any ideas? Do they really keep you from getting hungry?????
Hugs to all, A.
