Hi!  

I am new to blasting and loving it BUT I need some recommendations for energy and hunger.  I just started and am drinking a "tall cup" every morning for breakfast with spinach and fruit but find that I am not making it past 2 hours before I'm hungry again!  I am also falling asleep by lunch :) 

I have been looking at the different protein powders and other supplements, but don't know which to use and how to get what I need without adding a lot of fat and calories.  

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You may be using too much fruit which will cause a blood sugar spike making you hungry later. Try using at least 1/2 veggies and 1/2 low sugar fruits like berries and green apples. Ideally you want 3 times more veggies than fruits. Certainly add nuts and seeds for additional protein or a high quality organic whey, hemp or brown rice protein. Let us know how you are doing Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
This response is probably too late, but I agree with your thought to add protein to you smoothies. I just started Blasting and found the same thing. On the second day I added half a scoop of protein powder (13g protein, little more than 100 calories) and added a mid-morning snack of a hard boiled egg. That seemed to do the trick for me and still kept my morning calories to less than 350. My husband is a bodybuilder, so he keeps us stocked with protein powder - I think he is using At Large Nutrition. I recommend you stay away from soy protein, too much soy can throw off your hormones.I prefer to use whey protein, but our current one is a mix of whey and egg protein.
