My new "lifestyle" isn't working out very well for me.
September 7, 2013 at 11:24 PM

I started making shakes. 50% vegetables, 50% fruit. I also add in almonds or flax seeds. The liquid I use is 50% water and 50% apple juice (no sugar added) because It's really hard to drink if it's just water.. sometimes my shakes taste rancid. So anyways, I drink 1-2 shakes a day. I think they're like 12oz each. So anyways, since I've started doing these shakes.. I've had the most awful gas. HUGE HUGE farts that smell HORRIBLE. I can't even hold them in. And I SO do not want to fart at school. Any tips?

    Hmm I'm not sure. It must be the fiber causing gas!

    Hmm I would search for shakes that taste good and still healthy.  I prefer smoothies though.  Fruit juice, frozen or fresh fruit and yogurt.  No water or ice involved.  I havent tried adding veggies to them yet.

    A lady at work went on a 30 day juice cleanse and it takes some dedication that is for sure. She was interested in the body healing itself when it is not bogged down by digestion which wastes a lot of your bodies energy. That is real extreme, but know several ladies that do the shakes in the morning and then a salad lunch.

    try beano? 

    apple juice by itself is high in sugar. and maybe try following recipes for a more tasty, yet still healthy, blend.
