Yes, but you may need to take a lot of them compared to using just oil. If you ditch the ground seeds, you're also losing the fiber, part of the reason milled flax is recommended. (You'll need to do a little math based on your needs.) Why not just do the diet as written?
You can take both. Gas? Probably not. You'll find out.
Read label on Surge. Buy all ingredients separately, then drink it. When you're done vomiting you'll realize that Surge tastes very good. Otherwise, get used to it. Most people love the taste. Regardless, it'll be a treat by the time the V-Diet is over.
As many as you need based on the recs written on the diet. Again, math.
You'll find out. Give it a week or two and see.
Sounds terse, I know, but my only tips are to do the diet as recommended. The rest you'll learn as you go based on your individual goals, needs, and reactions.
Reason for the caps is that I already had a bottle someone gave me. I'll go buy the milled flaxseeds.
What type of serving do I use to calculate my caloric breakdown of the flaxseed caps, milled flax seeds, and fish oil caps??? I have 1000mg flaxseed caps and 1000mg fish oil caps (1 cap of fish oil contains 180mg EPA/120mg DHA)
3)OK, I'll just chug the Surge. I was just wondering if any of the "flavors" your S/O used in her shakes would work.
4) I think it was written to get 20-25 g of fiber a day. Based on however much milled flaxseeds I'm going to take, I assume I'm supposed to subtract those grams from 20-25 and take the chewables to make up the difference???
I'm 5'6" 220 lbs and my math indicates that I need 1600 cals on non training days and 1900 cals on training days.
Based on 5 shakes & 220 grams of protein a day. I am going to consume my first shake w/ 3 scoops, then 4 more shakes w/ 2 scoops throughout the day.
I'm just having a hard time w/ the math of the shakes + flaxseeds + fishoil caps etc... I feel like a blockhead, even though I'm normally GOOD at math. Thanks for the help and any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Tis GOOD stuff by itself. maybe some splenda if you need but I agree with Chris it grows on you and the taste is Brilliant and I have NO idea how they acceived it after tasting Hydro.
Id say thats a MINIMUM, they more the merrier. It will keep you more satisfied in the meals as finer takes up space and keeps the pipes flowing.
Id spread it out to 6 or more shakes myself. That will keep you having more meals less time between to be Starving. Also it will keep a consistant level of intake to allow the metabolism to stay Up while hypocaloric. Mix then with PLENTY of water and drink a ton aside form the shakes.

I guess I'm turning this into a semi blog to keep myself motivated. It's day 3 on the diet and I've already fallen off the wagon a little bit. Yesterday I couldn't sleep because I was STARVING, even though I drank my last shake 1/2 hour before bedtime. I ate about 12 oz of lean broiled top sirloin. Not TOO bad I suppose.
Today at work, probably due to dehydration, my breath was brutal and I ate a sugar free breath mint. All in all, this diet isn't that bad...except when I smell food cooking. I really have no problem w/ staying out of the kitchen as long as no one is making something I like...
