Yup, however you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm it as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you email the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...
Early on I had trouble with bread and potatoes. Now at 8 months out I can eat almost anything - very small amounts of course. The only thing I cannot tolerate are sweets. I have a very low dumping threshold. I never realized how much hidden sugar is in Medifast food until I had to start.
Absolutely every label before I eat...
I don't think I have a difficult food. If I have trouble eating it, I just...don't..
I have blocked on a lot of stuff, like salmon and tuna. I just.
Them now, they don't even sound good. I do still eat white fish (any fish that is white fleshed)..
I also got sick on (blocked or dumped) tortilla chips, and rice. I just don't eat them anymore..
I do miss them sometimes, but when it comes to having a chance to consume them (like ordering in a restaurant) I still find something else to order...
Yes I do the bread becomes like a paste ball in my stomach. I was told to toast the bread first and it will be easier to digest. For me that works, however I hardly eat any bread at all, I don't like that over full feeling. I am 2 1/2 years out and still have the same feeling...
Rice,bread,patatoes all of the give that heavy uncomfterble feeling. I also since.
Have issues only with sowardfish. Makes my stomach feel cramped. No problems with sugar. No change does not bother me...
So I see carbohydrate foods are the most difficult for most people. I have heard bread is the hardest. I havn't had rice yet so I'll take it easy when I have it next time. I usually toast all my bread products and have had no problem (I eat only some of 1 slice made into a mini-sandwich). I use to be able to eat three or four sandwiches. The bread I had difficulty with was a hotdog bun.
I also can eat almost anything, but the thing that gives me the heaves, is reheated meat. I mean like warming up leftover steak or chicken in the microwave, it lands in my stomach like a rock and works it's way back out, yeck......I.
That most. I can eat bread but don't because it doesn't have much protein and it takes up alot of space. Although I went grochery shopping last week and found protein bread in the bread isle, and it has 7 grams of protein per slice. I might try it...
Polly let me know the nutritional details of that bread. I'm going to the grocery store tomorrow and want to check it out. I already eat light rye bread which is 40 calories per slice, somewhat tasty, and has plenty of protein and fiber...
From breads, pasta, but I fo eat potatoes sometimes. Hamburger is my difficult Medifast food adn tuna in the can. I get a terrible stomach ache almost the minute they hit my stomach. I'm now at the point where jsut smelling tuna in the can makes me sick...
I can only eat certain types of bread, like rustic natural white bread and any bread that isn't so processed, never the doughy white bread of any kind. I cannot tolerate anything that is very processed or with hydrogenated shortening in or a lot of sugar. This is a good thing. I had my.
3 1/2 years ago and this has not changed. Rice makes me feel very uncomfortable, I think it swells up more in my stomach. Pasta is fine. The only time I ever still vomit is if I eat too fast or don't chew enough and it is usually because of coarsely ground meat that isn't cooked enough. I will never ever eat a fast Medifast food burger because I spent 3 days in the hospital having my stomach pumped because of it. I was too hungry, I ate too fast, and I was dehydrated.
I had to have tube down my throat for 3 days and 10 zillion tests to see what was going on as I could not keep anything down..not even water. This was a lesson learned...
I was wondering if anyone has difficulty with eating bread. Anyone else?.
What it everyone's most difficult Medifast food to consume?..
Bread is hard to eat, they said it would be because it spreads out and fills up the pouch. Also rice is a killer! When I was 2 months post opt, I couldn't eat fish, don't know why but it took me a long time to be able to eat that...
Dense white meat of any kind - chicken breast, albacore tuna, pork. Bread is ok, but I had to force myself to switch to whole-grain bread from flour tortillas after 2 weeks because they were oh-so-good. You didnt mention what kind of issues it gives you - could it be you are intolerant of wheat products?..
I have only really had trouble with steak when I hadn't chewed it enough and it got stuck. I can tolerate it well but am very careful to chew it well before swallowing now. I don't eat bread either. I might have a half slice of toast with eggs when I go out but that's about it..
I can't tolerate fast Medifast food hamburger even without the bun, the combination of the grease and the fillers in it make me gag. I know just swallowing it that I am going to feel crappy afterward. I haven't tried rice.. because I know it will expand in the pouch and anything heavy in there makes me feel like my chest will split open. I found out I cant eat anything dry like pork chops.. that too came back up.
I have problems with sweets and greasy foods mainly.. which is in a sense a good thing I guess. All in all there really isn't all that much I can't eat.. in moderation I am finding I can eat most things. It is important to not eat on a dry pouch..
Or it hurts. I have also found that taking.
After I eat certain foods helps a lot, it's all a.
As a preop bread was my best friend. I loved bagels, and.
Bread, etc. But I absolutely can't tolerate it at all now. I guess that's a good thing, but I've tried pizza, and sandwiches, even wraps and they all make my stomach hurt and give me diarea. Even toasted bread. So I guess no more bread for me. I also have to really limit any pasta I eat to just a few bites as a taste, because it doesn't usually sit well with me either..
Btw - I have tried those breads with the 45 cal or whole grain or whatever, and for me they are so hard to chew and don't seem to break down because they are so dense, so I.
Another "difficult" Medifast food for me is corn, which I also love. But no matter how much I chew it, it makes me feel overly full and uncomfortable. Same with rice..
Sugar is the #1 no-no for me, over 15 g in anything will make me dump. Also anything with breading that is fried, I mildly dump on..
It's kind of like having a govenor on your body that reminds you that you just can't eat the bad stuff anymore. I do miss those foods, but I'm so over it. I'm glad to not be able to eat them most of the time...
Glad to hear I'm not the only one having problems with Tuna. I made some tunafish today and doesn't seem like I can chew it enough and it still wants to come back up...
