    Has anyone tried adding flaxmeal to their shakes?

    I was thinking of trying it to bulk them out a bit more when I'm hungry.

    For 30g - 0.5 carbs, 153 cal.

    What do you think?

    I have a load of flaxmeal in the cupboard from when I did Atkins but Id never thought of trying that. Could be quite a good idea, just dont know if it would work.

    Calorie content seems high; how much would you have to use? I bulk up my shakes and soups with Co-op unsweetened soymilk - 250mls is 80 cals, 0.5g carbs, and high in protein and fibre so keeps me full for longer. Also I only use 100mls so hardly any calories.

    Yeah but the flaxmeal would have the added bonus of helping out with bowel movements so Im inclined to think the extra calorie intake wouldnt be an issue.

    Thanks for the info Dreamer :)

    I'd thought about using 10/15g of flaxmeal.

    I'm not sure if it will work either Joanne but I think I might give it a go!

    Ah that's not so bad, 10/15g wouldn't take you out of VLCD. Hope it goes successfully :)
