I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
I am 9 1/2 months out and don't eat either. Still have about 40# to go and my nutritionist discouraged even trying them while I wanted to lose more. I know wheat tortillas are great for wraps (sandwiches) , pizzas and more. I continue to use lettuce or spinach leaves for that..
Some ARE able to eat those items, without dumping, I didn't want to risk it at this stage. Perhaps down the road, but I doubt I'll ever be one to eat more than a few bites ..
We eat lots of this kind of food.
Normally though I dont do the flour.
I like making up a salad and if I think I need some sort of shell then I will get the chips thing you know the ones they make nachos with and I will have maybe 2 of them.
I try to stick with the meat and tomatos.
Most people dont know but tomatos help fight some cancers..
I am a few days past four months post op and I do pretty well with wheat tortillas. I often have an egg burttio breakfast, fast and easy. I used to crave pasta, but don't anymore...
Does anybody do peanut butter and jelly, I'm dying for it. I don't know what I could put it on to eat though. I'm thinking about just putting the 2 in a bowl.....LOL.....I love skippy natural(3g sugar) and no sugar added preserves. I'd give anything for a regular old PB and J...
I've done peanut butter on toast with some sugar free jelly. I have had no problems. You can try in on crackers too...
Try wheat crackers or toast if you want them. They are on my banned list for now as I know I probably wouldn't stop! lol..
I do cracked more then bread but I use the low carb raps one little bag last over a month pasta I try not no eat it and if I do it is a small bite..
I am 6 months out and do eat those things occasionally. I chew it up to nothing though. Trying not to get back in the habit of eating alot of pasta, even though it's my FAVORITE..
I tried the wheat tortillas and things, and no go. Seems the beast (evil pouch of doom) no likey any bread. I get bubbily and guts growl. I have bought some of the thin wafer crackers, Carr's makes some bigger sized ones, most unslated so you can adjust that per your tastes. Got my family eating those instead. Melt some cheese over some baked chicken and olives and yum! I also use lettuce leaves alot as a "bun" in making half dollar sized burgers.
But me.. /shakes fist!..
I'm just 1 month post op and not looking at eating any of these things soon, but I do make my family a lot of pasta and mexican food. I buy ronzoni high protein high fiber noodles for them and wheat flour tortillas. I was wondering if anyone can eat these things?.
I'm over 3 months postop and I slice bananas or peel and cut up apples and put peanut butter on them (yummy). I also will eat a couple of low fat saltines with Pb&j on them (or whole grain wheat thins)...
A year ago, and I do have pasta and burritos, etc. I find that with pasta, I eat the meat first, then a little pasta until I am full. No al dente, it swells in my stomach. Tortillas need to be baked with sauce over them, otherwise they sit like a stone..
I eat peanut butter, just a tsp or two at a time. Not on bread, not with jelly. It's very dense in my pouch and makes me feel very full..
I kinda doubt you could handle pasta or tortillas now. Or that you'd even want to try. At 1 month, my pouch was still too tender to handle complex carbs. And really, to optimize weight loss, you should.
As many carbs as possible in the first 6 months. Even now, if I have too many carbs one day, I gain a pound or 2 the next day..
I can eat anything as long as I chew it up well and stay to a small amount. I eat natural peanut butter on a half a piece of wheat toast in the morning at times. I can also eat one taco around dinner time with a soft crust. I very much believe in eating a balanced Medifast diet no matter. I don't want to deprive my body of anything unless it's usless. On my list usless includes things that are full of sugar and things that are deep fried.
Carbs aren't all bad either. We need them for energy...
Thanks everyone for your replies. Like I said I'm not interested in them now, but in the future I would like to be able to eat what I cook for my family. Instead of cooking myself seperate meals each day. I really liked the banana and pb idea......I'll try it soon. I'm not planning on doing a lot of carbs. Just want to know what my options are..
And update on my weight loss -60# 1-month post op!.
I will be 6 Mo post op on Feb 3 and I can not eat any kind of bread or tortillas. I can eat crackers but nothing soft at all. It swells and hurts so bad. I can eat rice in moderation and barely barely barely nibble on pasta. My pouch just cant handle it so I dont bother trying anymore. I dont mind not being able to eat them anymore.
I dont mind at all and really dont care to get hooked again..
