Flax is not for everyone, I would check it out before adding to your diet.
I do not eat grains, (except occasional corn tortilla maybe once a week-my weekend indulgence) if you do not eat grains - you will eat a lot of fresh fruit & veggies & meat & nuts.
dried fruits are also a good snack & a source of fiber...
I have also eliminated corn syrup from my diet, & make my own ketchup out of tomato paste - & you will have to look to find a brand that only has tomatoes...
I also only drink water.
Well..Flax is really good for almost everyone. Why don't you post what you have heard for us?
Flax is one of the best things many can add to thier diet..but it goes without saying that not everything is for everyone and we all should check out EVERYTHING before adding it to our diet.
Flaxseed OIL yes..be careful with this..but flaxseed..hmmm
For MOST the numerous benefits of flax seed outway the bad.
Be careful with the dried fruit. Raises the sugar content and most are done with sulfites. It also should be from a organic source as many fruits are the most oversprayed. It's also higher in carbs and calories unless that's what you are looking for.
