Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
Chicken seems to be the culprit with quite a few of us. I used to love my chicken breast, but I've been doing boneless chicken thighs, cause the darker meat is moister..
Brett is right though.........it won't be the last.........life after GBS.....LOL..
You'll do fine though.....just find what you can tolerate, it takes some getting used to...
I wasn't able to comfortably eat chicken until probably month 4I guess it was the texture, as I too, felt i'd chewed it to almost a pureed state. It IS important to keep meat, and chicken moist, with broth or just not over cooking. I still cut my meat into small bites, as a reminder to myself,w ith each bite I need to eat it slowly and chew, chew, chew..
I suspect if you wait a while, and try a small amount again down the road, it will work better for you. I don't have any problem with it now....but I'm 9 months post op..
I am 2 years out and still have problems with chicken. I can eat 1 KFC leg-nice juicy dark meat. I know it's a little bad...but hell I use to be able to eat a whole damn bucket!..................and remember you usually get that lousy, sick feeling 10 minutes or more after you stop eating so really get to know your limits! To be honest I am glad I still get sick. It reminds me to slow down...
I still get problems with meat.
I cant eat sausage or bacon anymore I stoped bying pork unless beef is fresh I cant have that much either.
Meats are heavy.
Just for fun one day try to put things in a choper.
You will notice though that the meat kinda will stay heavy where like veggies eggs potatos will mince up.
Just keep trying it I got sick for about 6 mths off all meat.
Just remember meat breaks down much harder ::)..
Yeah, white meat is a real problem for me. Turkey is even worse than chicken. Any overcooked or excessively fatty meat is horrible for me at 8 months out as well. I like skinless chicken thighs cooked with low-fat cream of mushroom soup and some wine for a cooking sauce...
That sounds yummy. I still have huge.
Issues,,I serve myself more than I can possibly eat,,Thank god for Lean Cuisine dinners...
Chicken can be tough.. it still is for me as well. I have to have it in gravy or something to not get that nasious feeling, I agree with you Susan I love the Lean Cuisine dinners as well,..
As for me, I am only a little over a month out and I have problems now that I can eat reg. foods I can only eat about 2 tabs, of Medifast food at a time .. and meats well I'm not even going there anymore for awhile. Seems like all I can eat without loosing it is yougart, apple sauce and a few other things.. I'm sure it will get better :)..
Chicken satay had me frothing for about two weeks at about 3 weeks out... I know I know 3 weeks, but our schedule is different over here... I was on mash in under 2 days in hospital......
After trying it again, chicken has now become my prefered meat.... as long as it is moist... I can do small amounts of KFC but not a lot..
The thing to remember is it will change day to day, so give it a miss for a wek and then try it again... you will find it changes, dont let it stop you trying....
At 4 months out the only thing I sometimes struggle with os bread.... most other things are fine...
Might be me....who knows but good luck in anycase... Dont let it put you off trying again.....
Trial and error for a few months Im afraid...
