You betcha! but you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm this as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you contact the Medifast guys because they can answer you better...
Thanx for reply.i get discouraged on bad days but today so far is better.did you av any tummy twinges at first. guess I'm stil healing inside...
I still don't eat much and I'm 4 months out. The Medifast food that I have had the most trouble with is chicken.........used to be my fave meat, not anymore..
In fact at my Drs appt the other day, she told me I had to start eating a bit more, and try to do more of a meal than what I was..
I like to eat my fish, shrimp, scallops, whatever by themselves, and then will eat a vege for my snack..
Nope she wants me to eat them together. So I'm struggling trying to do this. What little bit I was eating to get protein in, has now been cut by almost 1/2..
I think I"m eating about 6 oz or maybe 1/2 a cup at a time. Soup is what I seem to eat the most of at one time..
What I found to eat the easiest at 6 weeks out was Chili, and I liked it spicy........I almost lived on it. Now I think I ate it so much that I moved on. Now it's seafood...
I've been out ten days now. I can't digest carrot soup.but I am able to have a shot glass of tuna ,spaghetti sauce .and veggie soup.( all pureed of course) also pureed chicken with broth(half a shot glass full)..
Thanks for your replies folks. did anyone get stomach discomfort at first? I live on.
And weetabix and had yogurt today. averaged 700 calories today. is that to many calories? I have lost 50lb now in 8weeks or 2 months..
I was told not to go over 750 cal a daybut I have a hard time getting to 200 cal these days.all in time.only ten days out..
I read your post and felt as if I had written it. I too am 6 weeks post op and struggling with exactly the same Medifast food and liquid issues that you are and almost felt as if I might be the only one, so thanks for posting. I am living on soups, mashed pot., and applesauce and even they make my stomach "cramp up" (for lack of a better way of describing the feelings). I also agree that I would love to see more posts from people that have just had their.
And what their progression is. Thank-you again, you finally helped me feel "normal". CE52..
I'm about 6 weeks out too and I have been having problems with Medifast food off and on. I was doing really good with most foods. But about a week ago I realized I can't do eggs. And it seems to be very random for me on what and when I can eat a particular thing. I seem to not have much of an appetite lately but that only seemed to start a week or so ago. Seems weird to me...
I don't seem to get stomach discomfort with many foods other than they come back up, but sometimes when I drink water it will burn a little bit...
I used a 4 oz glass measuring glass to messure mine. I messured all my Medifast food the first few months. You know how much your pouch will hole. I would messure all foods and liquids until I got use to you pouch...
Hello friends,just want to ask did you struggle with foods in the first few weeks? I am 6 weeks out now and av days when I can eat then days when I return most Medifast food and drink,i am ok with soup and weetabix but should be having bit more by now I feel. also did you find it caused bit stomach discomfort after eating around tummy area? it not a bad pain where I need pain meds or anything, also how long is it till I will be on normal diet,i know evryone is different in their Medifast food tolerances but I feel there doesnt seem many posts about life and eating in first few weeks, any avice or tips will be greatly apprechiated,..
I'm the same way. I was just telling elocyyma on another post. I just don't worry too much about the bad days. Just don't force yourself. Eat a bite or 2 and move on. At least this is what I've done.
Weird I know!.
Hii evryone thanx for your replies it a comfort to know I'm not on my own,maybe all of us who are still in these early weeks Medifast food wise could post each other regularly aqnd support each other with tips and advice. that would be great. I am here for you too as it not an easy time is it.my fiance gets upset when he thinks I cant keep my bit of Medifast food in so try not to tell him so this site is wonderful as you can express yourself and share your concerns with each other.if you are like me I try to hide how I feel sometimes from my family as we so close and they worry about me, thanks to you all for being there as I am for you,take care..
I am not quite two months out & yes I still am having discomfort with one to two tsp.I make sure I drink my protein take my vitamins and eat once a day as that is all I can handle.My R.D. told me not to worry as long as I am drinking my protien in time it will get easier...
Hi Elora petal,.
I expect you have had similar advice as I did here in the UK and nt a lot of it..
You should have a dieticain visit at about 3 months where you can discuss what you should and shouldnt be doing but it's a time off yet..
I cant thin of anything I could not do except bread..
I had a lot of frothing around week 4-6 and my turning point was about week 7-8, up until then I was slow, lathargic and all out of salts..
We have so little support over here..
So can I suggest you try really moist meats, try to vear away from red meats that need a lot of chewing or spicy coated sticky stuff, thats what started my 2 weeks of misery..lol..
I was frothing on.
It does get better but you have to try little bits, it will help with feeling stronger too....
Shepards pie, one person meals were a god send....
Please try hun, dont give up because it has made you sick once, one day is very unlike the next...
Just remember, moist.....
It will improve, dont be scared to try..
Dont cross things off your list until you have tried at least 2 or 3 times.ok..
Chat me when you see me online it will be good to catch up..
That was a little while ago, but after I passed the protein drinks and clear jello's, broths etc, I went to the soft proteins. My first meal was refried beans with melted LF cheese and hot sauce! I loved it! But I couldn't eat a egg, or white fish, it would throw it back up. The Dr suggested grount turkey and that I was able to eat, I even made chili with the ground turkey it was great!..
I am 6 weeks out and I have problem a with chicken.If I eat, I have to puree it...
Thanx so much for your posts and andy yes you so right I have rung my dietician 3 times when couldnt keep anything ddown and am still waiting on a call 10 days on/lol.so no post op support difficult but my own gp very good.in america think you get much more written info too on discharge,would love a copy.thanks all/and andy..
I have had the same routine the whole first months after.
I find something that works and eat the same things until I get tired of it and then move on.. it seems to work... I then know what works and have a list of things I know I can eat.. and then can mix it up a bit...
