Personally, I've found I can't seem to handle more than 1 scoop of Vega WFHO per day. Any more than that, and my system gets pretty upset with me. Someone once told me it is likely the chlorella in it. So, if I had as much of that as you, I would be one huge explosion! :D

Hope you're feeling better since your cleanse!

Yeah, I would cut back and see how you feel. I seriously get the worst gas (sorry, I don't mean to be crude) when I have more than one scoop of Vega in a day. But, I do have one scoop most days as my "nutritional insurance policy", and my system can generally handle it. If I want more protein powder at other times in the day, or just already feel bloated or whatever, then I just stick to a straight-up protein powder that doesn't have the chlorella and whatnot in it.

Good luck!

Hi Jesse. Just checking in to see how you're doing. I haven't heard back from you. But you're doing great, I see. Weight was down to 224.8 on Tuesday---that's great!!! Has your stomach improved? You've done really great this month! I have no doubt that you're going to continue the great habits and workouts after January is over.

Feel better soon, Jesse! Remember, challenges and tests aren't always bad. They can show you what you're really made of and that you're strong enough to stay true to your commitment of reaching your goal, no matter what life throws at you. Take care of yourself and take it easy while you're healing. Part of getting and staying fit is knowing when it's time to rest and recover. Once you're well, you can get back on track to reaching your goal. You've done a great job this month! You should be very proud of yourself. :)

YAY!!! So proud of you, Jesse! Keep up the great work! And I hope you'll feel better soon. I've been wondering how you have been feeling since cutting down on the Vega WFHO?
