I really want to start doing wheatgrass shots. There is a local health food place with a juice bar that has them for $1.99 per ounce. They also sell the powder to do at home, which would be much better financially for me.

Is the powder just as good? How do you mix it? Do you need a blender, or can you just put it in some juice or water, stir it with a spoon and go?

Thanks!!!

I don't believe in the concept of superfoods. Try it, if you like it, do it. But don't count on it being a big help in dieting, and certainly not in keeping off weight longterm.

I saw red wheat 5# bags on Amazon for ~10$ I believe you sprout them and juice them up. I'll check my health food/grocery store and see what they sell the bulk for.

Nutritionally, I'd expect that to be about as good as it gets, certainly better than powder.

I've been using Fatsecret for a week. What are some delicious ways of getting more protein? My Carbs are most predominant, then Fats. Trying to reduce both. Suggestions?

Acv
1-2 tbsp a day for two weeks got rid of my gall stones. The ACV stimulates bile production which aids in digestion and helps cleanse the gall bladder and liver. Don't know about weight loss.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
