    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    If you aren't trying to lose weight, I'd suggest a product like Ensure Plus. These are literally made for people who cannot ingest solids on the long term so are perfectly safe as solid meal replacements. They have all the nutrients that you would need, just make sure that you drink at least 4 a day to maintain healthy weight.

    Check to see if it's okay to consume the following:

    Hemp protein powder (high in fiber! good amount of protein...and NO you will not get high!)

    Whey protein powder (no fiber; considered dairy, but very easy to digest and has a great amino acid profile)

    Any protein powder or protein powder blend, in general! The vegan ones I like are pricey, but I love getting them every once in a while: http://myvega.com/ . (I personally stay away from soy because it's hard to digest and causes stomach upset in me)

    Then, blend it with the following:

    Almond milk (I love unsweetened vanilla flavor; found in the dairy section of your supermarket in half gallon containers)

    Hemp milk (found in shelf stable cartons at health food store; I actually love the taste of this!)

    Coconut milk (found in half gallon containers at supermarket's dairy section)
