Good News For Malnourished And Underweight.

Recommended Posts

:D I was in Whole Foods yesterday and stumbled upon a product called Vega. While it claims to be so nutritionally complete, I feel it could benefit some of us malnourished and underweight people who might use it as an added meal/nourishment basis. Or for those days when we've been glutened, or for those days when we're sick, etc. This stuff is virtually made for person's like ourselves as it is very alkaline and conducive to healthy gut flora - something that is typically very compromised in celiac persons. Its definitely worth checking out. www.myvega.com. I tried the chocolate and it was yummy! :P

Here's a quick clip regarding their drink mix (from their website):

With just 240 calories and 7g of net carbs per serving (natural flavor), Vega is an excellent choice for those on a calorie-reduced diet. High in fiber, protein and essential fats, Vega is naturally filling and satisfying, helping to suppress appetite and cravings.

Easily digested, alkaline and great-tasting, Vega is clean and green, containing no animal products, corn, dairy, egg, fillers, gluten, soy, sugar, wheat or yeast. Absolutely no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners and GMO and pesticide-free.

Vega is available in wholesome and delicious Natural, Berry and Chocolate flavors, in three sizes: individual 20g Snack Packs, small bottles containing 7-8 servings and large bottles containing 15-17 servings. One serving of Vega is a complete meal, exceeding all meal replacement requirements, but people with smaller appetites may find half a serving sufficiently satiating.

:) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I am going to try to find this product tomorrow for my son!! He is very skinny, but I think it might be good to use for anyone trying to lose weight in a healthy way, or just as a meal replacement when you can't find anything to eat.

I had no problem eating after i drank the shake. i plan on taking it regularly, probably several times a week, not in place of a meal, but as my drink with a meal. i did not find it to be "filling," but i did find it to be tasty. i suppose a person could use it for weight loss if that's what their needs are, but i find no reason not to add it to a meal so that i have the added benefits to the readily available nourishment this stuff provides.

I have a few questions --

Do you suffer from secondary food intolerance/allergies, yet?

Personally I wouldn't touch this stuff. Please don't take offence. I write this will kindness and concern :wub:

Do you have thyroid problems? I went to their web site you listed. They talk about HRT, when I stopped HRT years ago that is when celiac disease flared up for me. They have to use something to make the power out of. I couldn't find what it was. I found "Protein sourced from hemp, yellow pea, brown rice, flax and chlorella" Yellow peas are in the legume family. I know for those of us with thyroid problems (it can be confusing hyper and hypo) they tell us to stay away from seaweed. And chlorella is various unicellular green algae.
