      Hi Esther: We have 2 different meal plans with a lot of recipe options-our vegetarian meal plan in particular should work with your allergies. If there is a recipe that calls for any item you are allergic to, you can omit it or use a different substitution. Good luck!

    Second question: If I am taking Glutamine (free form) capsule 1,000 mg daily, how much more Glutamine is in the Collagen, and would you suggest adjusting the dose I am already taking?

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Ann: Our collagen does not contain any Glutamine. We recommend one to two scoops of collagen per day. You should check with your medical care provider if you have any other questions about the interaction between glutamine and collagen.

    The quote above from Julie Fischer says “gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, and soy free. The page with the pictures of the collagen containers doesn’t say “soy free.” Did I miss something?

    I was diagnosed T2 with an A1C of 11 on 28 Nov 2016.
    It’s quite the learning curve in trying to figure out how to eat.
    So I went from 160 lbs to 125 lb in only a few months and people were thinking that I was ill because the weight loss was noticeable.
    As of March 2018, my A1C is 5.8 and my weight is maintained at 125 pounds

    I am on Metformin – 1 in morning and 2 at night.

    My goal is to lower the bar even more so that my doctor will tell me that I don’t have to take the meds anymore.

    Can this program help me to do that?

As we said, our meal plans provide plenty of protein and help you to cut out sugar-something that can have lots of health benefits. If you have a specific question about your condition, we cannot offer personal medical advice and refer you to your doctor.

    came to your site by chance in trying to source info on MS for my grand who I suspect got all the symptoms for this disease. I found your site informative and inspirational not just for helping my grandson but also how I can help myself with my own health problems. I have signed up for the sugar free detox as I am a sugar addict wanting to break the cycle. I have already cut down a lot but I am still not sugar free.
    Thanks for the information you share, it has taken me from despair to hope; well done!!

    I am 55 years old and around 15kgs overweight. My knees are not enjoying carrying me around with my “watermelon belly”. My feet are also not enjoying life! I have very little energy and sleep 10-12 hours a day.

    My first grandchild is due to arrive in 7 weeks. I really want to be a hands-on nanna. I need to change my eating habits and I know I am addicted to sugar. This has to change for my own well being. My cholesterol is at 7.9 and my risk of stroke or heart attack is extremely high. I don’t take medication for it, so again, I need to fix this. The buck stops with me and what goes into my mouth. Thank you for helping me.

    I have been off and on with sugar, and here are the holidaze!
    Clearly this site and the supporters use animal products, but I don’t consume any meat and minimal dairy and fish. I do understand our ancestors were carnivores and that the uptick in bone broth, paleo diet and grass fed meats is a new way to do this in a more conscious way. I am considering the Marine Collagen, but could you address the veggie folks among us?

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Hi Kara: We have lots of vegetarian and plant based eaters in our community! In fact, our sugar detox includes a vegetarian meal plan. Many of the vegetarian members have used marine collagen which is made from wild caught cod. If you would prefer a completely vegan product, I recommend our Daily Turmeric Tonic. It’s full of anti-inflammatory and immune boosting ingredients such as ginger and cinnamon-it makes a great detox tea that you can use during the detox to help beat sugar cravings.

      Reply
  72. Kelly

    Is there a difference of taking the marine collagen over the pure? I noticed its more expensive and wasn’t sure if that was just due to one being from fish. Having no dietary limitations, will I see better results from the marine?

    Reply
    1. Recipe Team

      Kelly: The main difference is the source-one being from wild caught fish and other comes from grass fed cows. Also the marine collagen is a 45 day supply versus the bovine collagen that is a one month supply. Marine collagen is known for being the most bioavailable (absorbable meaning it gets absorbed faster than any other collagen type.) Also keep in mind that the benefits of collagen can take up to 3 months to be fully felt-the most economical choice is a 3 month supply of the bovine collagen. Good luck!

    My mum and I just signed up for this. Can’t wait. Want to be healthy, and just lost my uncle to cancer, apparently reducing sugar from your diet is a real health benefit. We’re really up for this.

    I too have been diagnosed with MS. When I first found out I was having a severe Epstein Barr flare up. I’m looking for an alternative to modern medicine. I’m in so much pain I’m anxious to find something to bring relief! It seems everyday the pain spreads to more parts of my body, nothing brings relief. I admit to being a sugar addict but I’m skeptical that by changing my diet could bring the relief I’m searching for, but I’m MORE than willing to try. With guidance on what to eat hopefully this will be my answer to prayers.

    Hi so im guessing that your meal plan and recipes are not vegan friendly? As the collagen is derived from bovine.

    I have major gluten and whey allergies and have yet to find a protein powder that actually tastes good. Is there a guarantee or return policy on the collagen protein if I do not like the taste? I’ve spent way too much money on brands that do not offer refunds and left with loads of powder that unless i plug my nose can’t take 🙁

      Hi Arvinda:
      We offer two meal plans-one which is Vegetarian. Maybe in the future we will add a vegan meal plan, however in the mean time, many of the recipes are acceptable for vegans or you can choose from one of our many vegan recipes on the website. Let us know if you have any specific questions about a recipe.

    Two of my Doctors have told me I need to do a sugar free eating plan. I have Fibromyalgia and arthritis already and I am in constant pain. I am not a real sweets eater to begin with, but I know I ingest sugar in a lot of other foods. These doctors believe the inflammation from the sugar is the answer to solving my pain problem. That would be great news! It will be hard, but I can do it!
    I did have gastric bypass surgery in 2006 so I don’t know exactly what my diet will consist of. I don’t absorb everything I ingest so it might be a little hard to get just the right amounts of proteins and minerals in the beginning. Any suggestions on that?? I have hypoglycemia as a result of the gastric bypass surgery so I have to be careful with carbs and sugars right now in my diet.

    Thank you,

    I’ve dieted my way to obesity. Every time I lose 50 lbs., within 2 years I’ve gained 70. I’m done dieting and realize that I have to make a change for good. It’s time to feed the body the correct nutrients and stop starving it. I love myself enough to make a difference. At nearly 70 years, starving myself by eating too much sugar and too little real food, I have developed an intolerance to fresh tomatoes and strawberries. Also, for the first time in my life, I have an allergy to pollen. My body is rebelling and I am finally listening. I am taking over the control of the child who has been running the show. I stand ready to begin again.

    I’m Vegan so can’t have the collagen mix. Is there any point in signing up? I don’t mind seeing non vegan recipes, I just won’t make them. But if the collagen is key to the program, and you don’t have a substitute, please remove me from your mailing list. Thanks.

    I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis in March 2015. I have been on and off prednisone for 2 years and one year on azathioprine. I HATE taking this medication. I don’t like the way my body feels. My lab tests for AST and ALT are within normal limits while on prednisone, they are pretty much normal since last August. In October I have hip replacement surgery and in January my tests were high again. I think it was from the medication that I took from surgery. The liver doctor said no and gave me prednisone and increased azathioprine to 100mg daily. I am only taking 50mg because 100mg just makes me feel awful and the night sweats are horrible. Do you think I can eventually get off this medication? Thank you.
