Can I still take my multivitamin on this diet? Also for a Caloric intake of 1200 calories a day how many bags would I need to purchase for a two-week treatment? Should I consume more than my normal caloric intake while on this diet?

Thank You!

1 Answer
I wouldn't take any additional vitamins while on the PED. The only other thing you should take is saccharmyoces boulardii.
One bag will last you 3 days on the 1200 calorie version. If you start loosing too much weight you can increase the does by a couple
of scoops.

How many grams of protein does this formula provide per serving?

1 Answer
1 scoop contains 7.5 g of free form amino acids. Protein is usually reported as amino acid molecular complexes. This formula is designed to be as easy as possible on the digestive system so proteins are broken down into their component amino acids.

would adding cinnamon interrupt the bacteria killing process?

1 Answer
Not sure if adding cinnamon is a good idea or not. Generally you keep this diet as simple as possible to give your intestines a rest.

Can you take this as a supplemental food between meals to gain weight? I have U/C and SIBO and have lost much of my body weight. I was 117 pounds and am now 90 pounds and 5'5" tall.
1 Answer
Sorry to hear about the intestinal problems. Physicians Elemental diet was formulated for the space program. It consists of the basics of what the body needs in a simple form where nothing really needs to be broken down to be used. I say that to say that a person can certainly use this as a supplement for a usual diet with a low risk of problems. Many SIBO patients use this formula exclusively for a time to help calm down the infection and provide basic nutrition. Seems that you could use this as a calorie booster with or apart from meals, whichever works best for you. Let us know how it goes.

Wanting to use this for SIBO. Is this safe to use only the formula for food for 21 days? Thanks
1 Answer
This formula was created for SIBO. This would be your only food source for that time in most cases.

Tastes Great and It's Filling!
July 30, 2020
I am so happy to report that this is quite yummy! It's the easiest fast on earth, I've lost over 15 pounds in the last few weeks and I'm never hungry. My gut is improving and I have - full disclosure - not been perfect. I will be a customer for life because of the extremely professional, expedited shipping and because I am sure I will be able to get all the supplements my ND is about to order at a much better price. Plus I am keeping this drink in my regular diet because the nutrition is so superior. Tastes so good, healthy living never was easier!

I had a partial cecectomy to remove two precancerous polyps, and no amount of pain killers could relieve the pain without causing constipation, nor could any kind of supplement help my intestines heal faster...until my ND sold me this. Within an hour or two the pain went away and my body was finally able to start healing. I went from taking 15 mg of Oxycodone every 3 hours to not needing it at all. Just be sure you take the higher recommended amount of water per serving of powder if it starts to cause mild discomfort and it will stop, as it is absorbed so rapidly by the intestines, that they will quite literally twist. The extra water slows down the absorption just enough to prevent the twisting, thus relieving any discomfort. I did not experience it the first time I used it, but a month later it did cause mild discomfort and the extra 2 oz of water per serving relieved the discomfort.
ProsIt is is extremely gentle on the digestive tract, and is especially helpful when recovering from G.I. Tract surgery.
ConsIf not taken with enough water, as recommended, it has the potential to cause mild discomfort, maybe worse if not corrected quickly due to rapid absorption into the small intestines. But it is not permanent.
