I tried the Nectar last night and got very sick again (after getting sick the night before after drinking a Premier drink)...appears that I might be allergic to whey isolate. I can drink the soy and pea protein. This is very disheartening to me, as I w
It seems like this has been a very long process that would never end, but here I am, my last day of eating "normally" (which obviously wasn't very normal). I'm nervous and excited and more nervous.
