Jacob started HyperPhe, and we were told he wouldnt need diet. I was so worried, this would change, that I was very cautious when starting him on foods, and stayed away from any with meat, or higher protein contents. He ended up needing diet. He is now 19 months old. He is allowed 9 grams of protein, in addition to his shakes. Its completely doable. Im not going to say, that its easy, cause some days are harder than others. With a lil prep time, and advanced thinking, and its all very managable! I dont check here as often as I should however, feel free to inbox me and I will give you my email addy if you would rather. Wonder where are you from? We are Ontario, Canada.
