Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
(WLS 12/31/07) Typical day: Breakfast, 1 fried egg (using PAM) and a slice of cheese on top. Snack: South Beach Bar 10g prot, before my daily walk, Lunch: Salad with Tuna/Salmon, or 1cup of chili or soup with legumes and some lf cheese on top. Afternoon snack: Fage yogart with fruit, Dinner: 3oz of chicken,fish,beef with a veggie/salad. I typically eat 5-6 times a day, fruit or cheese stix with some whole wheat crax in between. Dining out: Omelet with cheese, salad with tuna/salmon, or a burger minus the bun requesting no fries and asking for extra lettuce/tomato. I try to only eat one bread form of carb a day.
Hi! I am only two months out so I am still trying to find my groove but a typical day for me is:.
On way to work - protein water (15 g protien).
Breakfast - high protein oatmeal or egg with cheese (12 - 15 g protein.
Snack - low sodium V8.
Lunch - 3 oz protein (tuna or chicken) w/ 1/2 whole wheat tortilla or Wendy's small Chili.
Snack - 1 cup popcorn (LOVE IT!), 10 almonds and 1 oz cheese.
Pre Workout - protien water (15 g protein).
Dinner - 3 oz protein (chicken, lean beef, fish etc) 1/3 cup complex carb (sweet potato, 1/2 wheat tortilla, whole wheat stove top etc).
Pre bed snack - usually protein water or if I am hungry some nuts.
Sometimes I will cook for dinner and when I do that I will make something like mock lasagna (ricotta cheese, meat sauce and mozzerella) or Tacos (whole wheat tortilla, beans, meat and cheese with Fage yogurt for sour cream) etc..
I really just concentrate on choosing protein vs carbs..
Like this morning I was so hungry for some reason! So I stopped at McDonalds and got a sausage McMuffin with egg and took off the muffin. I had to sop up a lot of the grease off the sausage but all in all it was satisfying and 17 grams of protein..
I get at least 60 and more like 80 grams of protien per day. It really helps with the energy level..
For fast food:.
Taco Bell pintos and beans.
Chic Fil A non breaded chicken strps.
McDonalds egg mcmuffin (add meat) no muffin.
McDonalds plain cheeseburger no bun.
I am sure there are others but those are the ones I have tried..
I'm 13 months out now and I can eat just about anything except breads, biscuits, etc..
I eat 1/2 cup of cottage cheese every morning for my first meal..whenever it may be. if i'm out and about, lunch may be a south beach high protein cereal bar or a campbell's soup at hand. dinner if i'm out and about may be mcdonald's grilled honey mustard chicken wrap, soft shell taco from taco bell, or chili from wendy's..
Like I said, I can eat anything now, but of course.. only a small amount of it. I love extra thin crispy veggie pizza (dab the grease off with a napkin). one slice will do me. shrimp and veggies are awesome. black beans and quinoa.
Grilled hamburger meat. broccoli... any type of veggie really! I love veggies, hate meat!.
At fast Medifast food places, I can eat wraps, salads, and chicken nuggets. at wendy's, of course their chili. I can hold half of a small..
For snacks, I might have 3 peanut butter crackers out of a pack... or some cubes of cheese... or some sugar free pudding... yogurt...more cottage cheese. I never really eat the same things over and over anymore..
I get about 800-1000 calories a day and i'm still trying to lose about 25 more lbs...
I probably eat more cheese then anything..I love it. I'll have a sf yogurt in the morning and a cup of.
, or some cottage cheese with no sugar added fruit preserves. I'll roll up a slice of turkey breast with some smoked gouda or smoked swiss for lunch or have a salad with turkey chicken or shrimp on it..
For dinner, I make alot of boneless chicken breast or fish. I absolutely love sushi, so I have sashimi every chance I get, which is an awesome source of protein and super low on fat. I must admit, I havent been able to give up my carbs, but I dont do any sugar at all and when I do bread or pasta, I make sure it's high in fiber and protein..
You'll go through different phases, I have the habit of liking something and then eating it for breakfast lunch and dinner and then after a few weeks I cant even look at it. Like almonds and dried cranberries, ughhh, cant even look at them now, but I ate the hell out of them about 2 months ago..
And as far as going out, If it italian I get a caprese salad, asain i'll do tofu lettuce wraps, and lots of beans and cheese if it's mexican...
I am 2 1/2 years post-op and I am a salad whore! Almost everyday, I have lunch salad. I don't eat lettuce, waste of space and no real nutrition. I like cucumbers, tomatoes, marinated tofu (in italian dressing), carrots, celery, crabmeat, etc. I eat about a cup or so of salad. It goes down great, no problems at all. Makes me a happy girl! :-)..
I am 6 months post sugery and I eat almost everything except most carbs. unless they are whole grain. Here are some of my meals:.
Breakfast= fat free cottage cheese with fruit, or sardines(packed in water)on whole wheat crackers, or eggbeaters with cheese..
Lunch= 3oz. lean meat (left-over from dinner) and vegies or salad. I use fat-free or reduced dressing and only dip my fork into it so I don't waste calories..
Dinner= 3oz. lean meat and vegies. If I am eating out I can usually find something on the menu that gives me this, but I take 1/2 home for the next day's lunch..
Snacks= reduced fat string cheese, edamame (soybeans), beef jerky or any other low-fat, high protein item..
I was told to limit my calories to 1200-1500. I.

When I eat out I order whatever sounds good. I have found that no matter what I get, it's never as bad as I think it is. I ordered a Country Biscuit Breakfast at Bob Evanslast week. 659 calories 24 protein 16 grams of fat! BUT I could only eat 1/3 of it. I ate everything off of the top and left almost the whole biscuit and potatoes on the plate..

Hello - me again! I wish I could go back and edit my last post! It was all over theplace there at the end. BUT that's not why I popped back in..
