Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
I'm not sure but I really think this may be common.. I have not been hungry since I had my GBS Medifast food just don't intrest me at all. I eat because I know I need to but there are alot of things that don't set well with me and I end up loseing it... Mostly at dinner time..seems like I can't hold down my Medifast food then .. I'm only able to eat 2 tablespoons of Medifast food at one time, I'm sure down the road perhaps we will get the feeling of hunger backBut for now just make sure you take your vitamins and do your protien. I.
Sounds normal to me also. Even at 6 months out I still make myself eat at times because I know my body needs fuel and I need the energy to go to work and do my job. The key is to give your body the fuel and nutrition it needs, whether you feel like it or not. If you don't you won't stay healthy and it can really derail your weightloss because your body will go into starvation mode and you will stop losing or have really long plateau's. Not getting in your protein can have lots of negative things happen too, like excessive hair loss..
Keep trying, that's all we can do. Good luck!..
You should try eating every 2-3 hours, even if it's just a few bites or just a glass of milk, something. The longer the pouch goes without food, the more nauseaus you can become when trying to eat. I never went more than 8 hours without eating, including overnight. I was eating all the way up to bedtime, as I found it made my mornings much easier. Also if you get dehydrated and the pouch is dry, trying to put Medifast food into nearly always makes it angry. So keep your fluids up all day long.
Which was weird to get used to because preop I only ate based on what mood I was in. After.
Eating became much more robotic, but I had to do it that way, or otherwise I'd miss my protein and fluid guidelines. Hang in there, just do what you need to do, eat and sip, it's the only way you'll get trained into this new lifestyle. Wish you the best!..
I get that way sometimes as well. As long as you get your protein and fluids in you should be ok I think. Although, I find that if you try to at least consume something every 3 hours, like Callie has suggested, that works best..
For me, I eat plain fat free greek yogurt flavored with crystal light on days like that. (Fage, Oikos) Its packed with tons of protein and it goes down easy for me. Sometimes I can't take food...
I actually have a routine to get all my meals and liquids in. In the beginning, I would look at the clock and then force myself to eat something, now I predetermine what I will eat for the day so when I do look at the clock I know it's time for breakfast, or a snack or lunch, etc. It's pretty easy for me now...
Nothing is wrong with you. You just have to listen to your new body messages to let you know you must eat. Callie is right, you should force yourself to eat something every few hours. Especially your protein and vitamins. You don't want your hair to start falling out!..
