Judging from my own body's reaction to various things, I'd say it was the chia seeds, but then, that's just my body... I put two packed cups of organic baby spinach in my two daily green smoothies, and have never had a problem with it... Be sure to get organic, as the other sometimes has chemical residue that you can't wash off. Good luck, and keep me posted.

Yeah, I tried the 'warm' shake this am and omitted the chia seeds and the spinach I was putting in the shake. I was fine. I will add back in the chia seeds tomorrow - perhaps it was the raw spinach on an empty stomach. thanks for your feedback.

Hi Marcy,

I'm sorry to hear that the shakes are giving you such discomfort... I haven't had any problem with the Now Pea Protein and the Growing Naturals Organic Rice Protein I use in my green smoothies... I order them from Swanson.com... Are you sure it's the protein powder causing the problem??? Is there something new in the shakes your mixing in??? Hope you come up with an answer and can keep moving forward, as this is a super weight loss program.

Keep us posted.

Blessings, Hen

I'm on day 3 of the virgin diet, and the shakes are giving me incredible gas and intestinal discomfort. Does this go away after a while? anyone else have this experience?
