Mix two heaping tablespoons with 10 ounces of any fruit juice, half juice and water, or pure water and stir well. You may split the two tablespoons into several servings if you like, perhaps one in the morning and another later in the day. If desired add 1 ripe banana or any other type of fruit (frozen fruit works very well) and blend 20 - 30 seconds on high speed. Enjoy for a quick, fulfilling breakfast, at noon, before a workout or anytime.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is your product a "diet food"?
That depends on your definition of "diet food". Since "diet food" is considered two individual words. We take the meaning of the word diet to be defined as: (according to www.dictionary.com )
The usual food and drink of a person or animal.
A regulated selection of foods, as for medical reasons or cosmetic weight loss.
Something used, enjoyed, or provided regularly: subsisted on a diet of detective novels during his vacation.
and food is defined as:
Material, usually of plant or animal origin, that contains or consists of essential body nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals, and is ingested and assimilated by an organism to produce energy, stimulate growth, and maintain life.
A specified kind of nourishment: breakfast food; plant food.
Nourishment eaten in solid form: food and drink.
Something that nourishes or sustains in a way suggestive of physical nourishment: food for thought; food for the soul.
Flaxseed could be described as the perfect "diet food" in the sense that there are many medicinal benefits that can be obtained from ingesting it and flaxseed contains all the above mentioned attributes including soluble and insoluble fiber, which is lacking in the majority of our diets.
Also, the addition of flaxseed to your diet can create the feeling of satiation (fullness and satisfaction following a meal). The essential fatty acids in flaxseed causes the stomach to hold food for a longer period of time as compared to low-fat food or non-fat foods. Flaxseed added to food results in a slower release of nutrients into the small intestine. The physiological effect is a gradual, sustained rise in blood sugar, then a prolonged plateau of blood sugar. In other words, the blood sugar undergoes a slow and gradual drop.
You should experience a feeling of prolonged energy, stamina and satisfaction with no immediate hunger pangs following the meal. The end result being that you feel fuller, longer and, actually eat fewer calories in the long run than if you would have chosen a no-fat or low-fat diet.
I have been reading quite a bit about the benefits of taking flaxseed oil. Does your flaxseed have the same advantages?
Actually, flaxseed has many more benefits than flaxseed oil alone. First of all flaxseed contains over 90% more lignans (an anti-cancer agent), and 95% more fiber (both soluble and insoluble) than flaxseed oil. Also, flaxseed contains the whole package of omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids along with all the protein, fiber, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Flaxseed oil does not tolerate heat well, can become unstable (rancid) if stored improperly and some people have problems with nausea. Our product is stabilized by a patented process to avoid the instability, can be used for cooking as well as baking and seems to agree with most peoples digestive systems. Ingesting the entire flaxseed will give you a much more satisfied feeling and can ward off hunger, which can be very helpful with someone wishing to lose weight.
Which is better for me, whole or ground flaxseed?
Ground flaxseed provides more nutritional benefits than does whole seed. That's because flaxseeds are very hard, making them difficult to crack, even with careful chewing. Grinding flaxseeds breaks them up, making them easier to digest when eaten. Then the body can profit from all that flax goodness. If whole flaxseeds remain unbroken, they may pass undigested through the body, reducing the nutritional advantage of eating flaxseed in the first place.
I'm currently taking a prescription medication. Can I still eat flax?
If you are taking any medications, the Flax Council of Canada does not suggest or recommend that you eat flax or flax products without the specific approval of your physician. This is in keeping with the advice of experts who advise patients to consult their physicians before making any changes to their diet.
Does flax contain gluten?
Flax contains no gluten.
What is the shelf life of your product?
Since COMPETITRAIN is stabilized before the flaxseed is ground, our product keeps up to one year. Although, it is a good idea to freeze unused portions to maintain maximum taste and freshness.
