Kristin I wish i could help but I just started taking maca myself and am quite clueless...lol
Days 3 & 4 I took 80 mg soy
days 5, 6 & 7 I took 120 mg
I might add I did not take the maca same days I took soy. I started Maca on CD 11 or so. I don't know if that matters much... but that is how I did it.

That's interesting. My thought is that the ovusoft one is correct and that you o'd on cd14...

ETA: eh, strike that--could have been o on cd12 with a fall back temp on cd14--o on cd12 or 13 seems to fit better with cm, right? Either way, bd looks like it was timed well--fingers crossed for you!!!!

You're officially a graduate! Let me know if you want me to change your BFP date, I guessed at 6/5.

This thread is looking very successful.

Hi gals....just wanted to drop by and say hello. I'm still taking the maca, but I'm also took Clomid this month so I'm not able to isolate any maca-related symptoms. But I feel it's having a positive effect. I'm going to keep taking it.

How's everyone on this fine Saturday?

CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![/COLOR][/B]

I am sitting here at day 46 of the longest, strangest cycle of my life. Just waiting for AF or to test next Saturday. If I don't get AF this week and I test neg. next Sat. I may stop the Maca for a while and see what happens. I hope something occurs this week cause I stocked up on Maca and would hate to have so much of it and not be using it. I started mixing in a tablespoon oforganic, raw cacao with my maca smoothie and that helps a lot. I am using Navitas Naturals brand Maca for the person who was interested in brands. I have bought it on amazon, Vitacost.com, and from a local co-op. all about the same price.

To the poster who likes Mountain Rose Herbs better can you tell us why you like that one better?

Somehow I missed this. Thank you!

Now, how do you use it in a powder? I saw capsules somewhere else. For me, I know I could easily include capsules into my morning routine (prenatals, Calcium, and Omega 3) but not sure what to do with powder. I saw a mention of smoothie. Recipe?

Thanks,
Lisa Marie

My recipe includes 1 cp soy milk, frozen strawberries, frozen cherries, 1 tbs flax oil, 1 tbs organic maca, 1 tbs organic raw cacao powder. Blended in the blender.This is the best one I've done so far. I also have tried variations that included bananna and cinnamon that worked okay. I'd like a lower cal. recipe as I am drinking this 2x's a day and need to lose weight but this is by far the best tasting. hth

I'm really struggling just trying to get this stuff down. ugh. Today is day 6 for me.
I was trying to get 2 T in my morning smoothie just to have it over and doen with, but that seems to be too strong. So I tried 1 T this morning, but couldn't even get that down. Maybe it was because I switched to almond milk instead of soy? I usually hate nuts and anything that tastes nutty, but somehow I'm usually ok with almond products. Maybe it's too much together. Or else I'm developing an aversion instead of a tolerance.

Oh, and DH and DSD both loved tasting my smoothie today, while I was struggling not to throw it back up!

I tried 1/2 c chocolate almond milk, 3 frozen strawberries, a bunch of frozen blueberries, maca, liquid prenatal, protein powder, and 1/2 c water. I'll try it with rice milk tomorrow, but if I can't get it down I'm not sure what to try next.

Thanks for the recipe. Not a fan of cherries or bananas though so I would have to try something else. I can give you a site for foods for losing weight for that similar to NutriSystem. A woman was on NS and wanted to start making her own food so she created a blog for it. PM me if you are interested as I would have to find it. BTW, I am/was (switching over to other foods now) on NS and lost 24 lbs or so in 2 months.

Not sure where I would get flax oil around here. Small town area and pretty much shop at Wal-Mart. The other store we have is Kroger but they are more expensive so if I can save a few $s then off to Wal-Mart it is. The biggest city closest to us is at least an hr away and with gas I will stick to where I am at unless I plan a trip for something else (ie the zoo).

What is cacao powder? Never heard of it.

Thanks,
Lisa Marie

If I were you I might add more strawberries and ditch the blueberries, liquid prenatal, and protein powder. I tried it with blueberries and a wholefoods powder and it was HORRIBLE. Just a thought. Yes 2 tbs is too much at one time.

Hey Lisa Marie:

Congratulations on your weight loss. I have struggled since I gained 92 pounds while pregnant with dd. I really just need to get my act together. If I exercise every day and manage my portions I do fine. But if I don't well, I am in trouble. I hurt my knee skiing in Feb. and have not gotten back to my exercise program but I am starting to get my act together.

You might do fine with just the strawberries and a chocolate flavoring. That is what the cacao is it's organic, raw chocolate powder. Available from Navita Naturals on Amazon.

I buy my flax oil at vitacost.com it is cheaper than our Whole Foods store. I don't shop at Walmart so I don't know but they might have flax oil at a super walmart or super Target if you have either of them.
