Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
It's too bad that Korean Medifast food isn't more popular in the states. If you can find a good Korean BBQ restaurant, OMG you will love it. You wrap the most delicious marinated BBQ beef in lettuce with some miso paste and marinated bean sprouts and kimchi.... yummy. Korean Medifast food is very healthy, the only thing you would really have to.
Is the rice. Everything else is meat and veggies. Korean Medifast food tends to be on the spicy side, so you may have to watch out for that if you don't like spicy food. If you're not sure what to order at a Korean restaurant (usually run by Korean ladies who don't speak English very well) here are some ideas for what to order:.
Kal Bee - Korean beef BBQ (sometimes they let you cook it on the table).
Soon Tooboo - Spicy tofu soup.
Kimchi - Spicy pickled cabbage.
Denjang Chigae - Soybean (Miso) soup.
Bool Gogee - Beef stir-fry.
Kong Na-mul - Bean sprouts.
If you are feeling adventurous:.
Oh Jing-oh Bokum - Stir fried squid (usually spicy).
A lot of times you can request less spicy versions...
At a little over 4 months out, I tried mushroom chicken with zucchini. I made sure that I ate the chicken first to get the protein..
You find something that you like. I use to love moo shu pork but have not tried it since.
I usually order shrimp or won ton soup without the wontons! I LOVE THAT SOUP!..
I love hot and sour soup but decided I like mine best! I'm ready to try asian too...not quite 3 months out so have not ventured to asian yet...love the noodles..pad thai was a favorite and not sure if I trust myself to.
I've been making stir fries at home quite a bit.....varying the protein from tofu, shrimp, thinly sliced beef/lamb, fish, eggs and chicken. For some reason chicken works sometimes and not others....go figure. I usually steam things like broccoli, cauliflower, beans etc before stir frying. And bean sprouts count as protein!!!! I also don't use alot of oil but rather the moisture from the vegies..
If i'm eating out I do the following:.
Japanese - sashimi, teriyaki anything, steamed edamame, miso soup..
Chinese - steamed dim sims (i take the noodle wrapper off), protein with vegies in whatever sauce you like. Sang Choy Bow (mince in lettuce leaves)..
Thai - beef/pork/chicken larb salad ....divine!!.
Vietnamese - lots of little things they do little things really really well! Salt and pepper squid, tofu anything, prawn skewers and anything with that mint chili combo...
I do hot n sour soup, or chicken, shrimp with steamed veges..
However, when we go on Sunday to our friends home that are Asian, they cook all kinds of dishes that are GBS friendly for me..
Chicken curry, no rice........spicy shrimp with green bean noodle, I.
The noodle........spicy squid with veges.......steam pots with veges, chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, squid.........of course I can't eat much, and everyone loves it...
